By V. A. Vassiliev

Many vital services of mathematical physics are outlined as integrals reckoning on parameters. The Picard-Lefschetz concept reports how analytic and qualitative houses of such integrals (regularity, algebraicity, ramification, singular issues, etc.) rely on the monodromy of corresponding integration cycles. during this e-book, V. A. Vassiliev offers numerous models of the Picard-Lefschetz concept, together with the classical neighborhood monodromy conception of singularities and whole intersections, Pham's generalized Picard-Lefschetz formulation, stratified Picard-Lefschetz conception, and likewise twisted models of a majority of these theories with purposes to integrals of multivalued types. the writer additionally exhibits how those types of the Picard-Lefschetz conception are utilized in learning various difficulties bobbing up in lots of components of arithmetic and mathematical physics. particularly, he discusses the subsequent periods of features: quantity services bobbing up within the Archimedes-Newton challenge of integrable our bodies; Newton-Coulomb potentials; basic strategies of hyperbolic partial differential equations; multidimensional hypergeometric capabilities generalizing the classical Gauss hypergeometric essential. The booklet is aimed toward a vast viewers of graduate scholars, examine mathematicians and mathematical physicists drawn to algebraic geometry, complicated research, singularity concept, asymptotic tools, strength idea, and hyperbolic operators.
