Jessica Valenti: IMG Full Frontal Feminism Revisited



It is arguably the worst and best time to be a feminist. In the years since I first wrote Full Frontal Feminism, we've seen a huge cultural shift in... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For those working in singularity theory or other areas of complex geometry, this volume will open the door to the study of Frobenius manifolds. In the first part Hertling explains the theory of manifolds with a multiplication on the tangent bundle. He then presents a simplified explanation of the role of Frobenius manifolds in singularity theory along with all the necessary tools and several applications. Readers will benefit from this careful and sound study of the fundamental structures and results in this exciting branch of mathematics.

Book News Annotation:

Addresses the relations between Frobenius manifolds and singularity theory, in two parts. The first section studies F-manifolds, discriminants, and Lagrange maps and their singularities, with some of Givental's work used as an application to prove a conjecture of Dubrovin about Frobenius manifolds and Coxeter groups. The second part takes up the construction of Frobenius manifolds in singularity theory, providing an elementary but detailed explanation, with results developed and cited. Suitable for readers with an understanding of the basic concepts of complex analytic geometry, including coherent sheaves and flatness.
