Editorial Review Product Description This handbook presents the first compilation of techniques and results across much of the present state of the art in Ktheory. Consisting of individual chapters, each an exposition of a particular subfield or line of development related to Ktheory, written by an expert, it outlines fundamental ideas and techniques of the past, fundamental open problems, and exciting directions for future research. Much of the material presented here appears for the first time in book form. The intent of each chapter is present to the interested reader, be she an established Ktheorist or someone interested in obtaining an overview of results, an exposition of both results and techniques in the literature as well as challenges for the future. The book should be especially useful for students and mathematicians interested in pursuing further research in this rapidly expanding field. Customer Reviews (1)

It alsopresents twelve documents of projects or events that had majortheoretical repercussions for the period. Several of the essays appearhere in English for the first time. Customer Reviews (5)
Great for learning more in depth about architecture theory
Woa! I'll start with one minor criticism, which wouldn't condemn the book, but is extremely infuriating: the page numbers are printed on the inside upper corners of the pages near the spine, not the outside upper corners as is standard practice in books. This makes it difficult to flip through and find what you're looking for, and is just sort of a mindbogglingly idiotic thing to do. Compounding the problem, many pages are simply not numbered! That little complaint aside, I guess Hays does do a pretty good job with his selection of essays. If anything it illustrates how much the discourse has obfuscated itself over the last 30+ years. To give you the the flavor of the book, here are a few selections: "The concept of architecture is itself an inhabited constructum, a heritage wich comprehends us even before we could submit it to thought. Certain invariables remain, constant, through all the mutations of architecture. Impassable, imperturbable, an axiomatic traverses the whole history of architecture. An axiomatic, that is to say, an organized ensemble of fundamental and always presupposed evaluations. This hierarchy has fixed itself in stone; henceforth, it informs the entirety of social space." "The combination of the system theory of the urban realm with its dynamic interpretation as a pressurized field gives rise to an assembly language based on impregnation, with system elements existing simultaneously, and at least virutally, everywhere, emerging to actualization only within nodes (conjunctions) of mutually interfering systems." "This suggests the idea of architecture as "writing" as opposed to architecture as image. What is being "written" is not the object itself  its mass and volume  but the act of massing. This idea gives a metaphoric body to the act of architecture. It then signals its reading through an other system of signs, called traces. Traces are not the be read literally, since the have no other value than to signal the idea that three is a reading event and that reading should take place; trace signals the idea to read. Thus a trace is a partial or fragmentary signal; it has no objecthood." They are not all quite like that of course, but most will not find this 'easy' reading. Learning to read english like this is a skill that takes some time to develop. Hays's little blurbs preceding each writer are decent enough, grounding you a little before you take on the selection, but they are not spectacular. I simply cannot recommend this book to anyone other than students forced to read it or those with a highly devoted interest in contemporary architectural theory. Anybody else will find it useless. (The Nesbitt and Leach were somewhat better)
Greatest Hits
No House of Cards Each successive wave of theorization about architecture contains similar elements of concern and patterns of approach, each multivalent through time or the pen of the author. Hayes gathers the contentious groups and individuals who have jumped into the fray of Architectural Theory and presents them neatly, their most salient essays all within one binding.

A wellwritten book on a difficult subject One especially good feature of this book is the wealth of examples it contains, especially those examples of most relevance to string theory. (Where Ktheory is finding some of its most interesting applications today) A wide range of subjects such as "topological" Ktheory (the Ktheory of gauge fields) and supersymmetry (referred to as "grading," following mathematicians' notation) round out this presentation of one of the most exciting subjects on the border of mathematics and physics.
A difficult book on a difficult subject "Elements of KKtheory" by K. K.Jensen and K. Thomsen is good introduction too. ... Read more

Editorial Review Product Description This book examines interactions of polyhedral discrete geometry and algebra. What makes this book different from others is the presentation of several central results in all three areas of the exposition  from discrete geometry, to commutative algebra, and Ktheory. The only prerequisite for the reader is a background in algebra. The basics of polyhedral geometry have been included as background material in Chapter 1. The text will be of interest to graduate students and mathematicians. Included are numerous exercises, historical background, and notes throughout the chapters.

Editorial Review Product Description Algebraic KTheory has become an increasingly active area of research. With its connections to algebra, algebraic geometry, topology, and number theory, it has implications for a wide variety of researchers and graduate students in mathematics. The book is based on lectures given at the author's home institution, the Tata Institute in Bombay, and elsewhere. A detailed appendix on topology was provided in the first edition to make the treatment accessible to readers with a limited background in topology. This new edition also includes an appendix on algebraic geometry that contains the required definitions and results needed to understand the core of the book; this makes the book accessible to a wider audience. A central part of the book is a detailed exposition of the ideas of Quillen as contained in his classic papers “Higher Algebraic KTheory, I, II.” A more elementary proof of the theorem of MerkujevSuslin is given in this edition; this makes the treatment of this topic selfcontained. An applications is also given to modules of finite length and finite projective dimension over the local ring of a normal surface singularity. These results lead the reader to some interesting conclusions regarding the Chow group of varieties.

A very good book indeed
best textbook for elementary probability theory
Great thoughts in every page
painful... even by undergraduate math textbook standards As a contrast, check out what people are saying about "A Book of Abstract Algebra" by Pinter  they're right, THAT is everything a math textbook should be. My class never quite finished it, but I had no trouble reading the later chapters on my own. I still have a copy of Chung's book, but it only has one remotely interesting thing in it that I remember, which was Laplace's calculation of the probability that the sun will rise tomorrow. Bottom line: if you're unfortunate enough to end up with a professor who is still using Chung's book (I used it in 1997) ... run! ... Read more

Editorial Review Product Description Engaging Organizational Communication Theory and Research: Multiple Perspectives is a book unlike any in the field. Each chapter is written by a prominent scholar who presents a theoretical perspective and discusses how he or she "engages" with it, personally examining what it means to study organizations. Rejecting the traditional model of a "reader," this volume demonstrates the intimate connections among theory, research, and personal experience. Engaging Organizational Communication Theory and Research is an indispensable resource for anyone wishing to be familiar with current trends in the field of organizational communication.

Editorial Review Product Description This is a graduatelevel textbook on Bayesian analysis blending modern Bayesian theory, methods, and applications. Starting from basic statistics, undergraduate calculus and linear algebra, ideas of both subjective and objective Bayesian analysis are developed to a level where reallife data can be analyzed using the current techniques of statistical computing. Advances in both lowdimensional and highdimensional problems are covered, as well as important topics such as empirical Bayes and hierarchical Bayes methods and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) techniques. Many topics are at the cutting edge of statistical research. Solutions to common inference problems appear throughout the text along with discussion of what prior to choose. There is a discussion of elicitation of a subjective prior as well as the motivation, applicability, and limitations of objective priors. By way of important applications the book presents microarrays, nonparametric regression via wavelets as well as DMA mixtures of normals, and spatial analysis with illustrations using simulated and real data. Theoretical topics at the cutting edge include highdimensional model selection and Intrinsic Bayes Factors, which the authors have successfully applied to geological mapping. The style is informal but clear. Asymptotics is used to supplement simulation or understand some aspects of the posterior.
