Geometry and Physics of Knots by Sir Michael Atiyah

Book Description

These notes arise from lectures presented in Florence under the auspices of the Accadamia dei Lincee and deal with an area that lies at the crossroads of mathematics and physics. The material presented here rests primarily on the pioneering work of Vaughan Jones and Edward Witten relating polynomial invariants of knots to a topological quantum field theory in 2+1 dimensions. Professor Atiyah here presents an introduction to Witten's ideas from the mathematical point of view. The book will be essential reading for all geometers and gauge theorists as an exposition of new and interesting ideas in a rapidly developing area.

K-theory by Sir Michael Atiyah K-theory, Paperback (May 1994)

These notes are based on the course of lectures I gave at Harvard in the fall of 1964. They constitute a self-contained account of vector bundles and K-theory assuming only the rudiments of point-set

Introduction to Commutative Algebra by Sir Michael Atiyah Introduction to Commutative Algebra, Paperback (January 1994)

This book grew out of a course of lectures given to third year undergraduates at Oxford University and it has the modest aim of producing a rapid introduction to the subject. It is designed to be read

Michael Atiyah Collected Works by Sir Michael Atiyah Michael Atiyah Collected Works, Hardback (April 1988)

Professor Atiyah is one of the greatest living mathematicians and is well known throughout the mathematical world. From 1977 onwards his interest moved in the direction of gauge theories and the interaction between geometry and physics. This work deals with the gauge theories.
