Morse Theory, Paperback (May 1963)» View all books by John Willard Milnor
One classical application of Morse theory includes the attempt to understand, with only limited information, the large-scale structure of an object. This kind of problem occurs in mathematical physics, dynamic systems, and mechanical engineering. This book offers an exposition of Morse theory by John Milnor, recipient of the Fields Medal in 1962.
