Riemann, Topology, and Physics Paperback / softback
Part of the Modern Birkhauser Classics series
The significantly expanded second edition of this book combines a fascinating account of the life and work of Bernhard Riemann with a lucid discussion of current interaction between topology and physics.
The author, a distinguished mathematical physicist, takes into account his own research at the Riemann archives of Goettingen University and developments over the last decade that connect Riemann with numerous significant ideas and methods reflected throughout contemporary mathematics and physics.
Special attention is paid in part one to results on the Riemann-Hilbert problem and, in part two, to discoveries in field theory and condensed matter.
