A Graduate Course in Algebra
volume 1 & 2
This comprehensive two-volume book deals with algebra, broadly conceived. Volume 1 (Chapters 1–6) comprises material for a first year graduate course in algebra, offering the instructor a number of options in designing such a course. Volume 1, provides as well all essential material that students need to prepare for the qualifying exam in algebra at most American and European universities. Volume 2 (Chapters 7–13) forms the basis for a second year graduate course in topics in algebra. As the table of contents shows, that volume provides ample material accommodating a variety of topics that may be included in a second year course. To facilitate matters for the reader, there is a chart showing the interdependence of the chapters.

Fixed Point Theorems and Their Applications
IOANNIS FARMAKIS AND MARTIN MOSKOWITZ
This is the only book that deals comprehensively with fixed point theorems throughout mathematics. Their importance is due to their wide applicability, which the book demonstrates. Beyond the first chapter, each one can be read independently, giving readers flexibility to follow their own interests. The book is written for graduate students and professional mathematicians and may also be of interest to physicists, economists, and engineers.

Functions of Several Real Variables
This book begins with the basics of the geometry and topology of Euclidean space and continues with the main topics in the theory of functions of several real variables including limits, continuity, differentiation and integration. All topics and in particular, differentiation and integration, are treated in depth and with mathematical rigor. The classical theorems of differentiation and integration such as the Inverse and Implicit Function theorems, Lagrange's multiplier rule, Fubini's theorem, the change of variables formula, Green's, Stokes' and Gauss' theorems are proved in detail and many of them with novel proofs. The authors develop the theory in a logical sequence building one result upon the other, enriching the development with numerous explanatory remarks and historical footnotes. A number of well chosen illustrative examples and counter-examples clarify matters and teach the reader how to apply these results and solve problems in mathematics, the other sciences and economics.
Each of the chapters concludes with groups of exercises and problems, many of them with detailed solutions while others with hints or final answers. More advanced topics, such as Morse's lemma, Sard's theorem , the Weierstrass approximation theorem, the Fourier transform, Vector fields on spheres, Brouwer's fixed point theorem, Whitney's embedding theorem, Picard's theorem, and Hermite polynomials are discussed in stared sections.

Basic Lie Theory
This volume provides a comprehensive account of basic Lie theory, a subject at the center of mathematics. It is designed to be a text for a year's graduate course in Lie theory, bringing the student to the point of being able to embark on research in this subject and can also serve as a reference work for professional mathematicians specializing in other subjects. It covers, among other things, the structure of Lie algebras, Lie groups and their homogeneous spaces, Haar measure, symmetric spaces of non-compact type, and lattices. Hossein Abbaspour, a recent alumnus of the Ph.D. program in mathematics at the Graduate Center is currently an assistant professor at the University of Nantes, France.

A Course in Complex Analysis in One Variable
Complex analysis is a beautiful subject — perhaps the single most beautiful; and striking; in mathematics. It presents completely unforeseen results that are of a dramatic; even magical; nature. This invaluable book will convey to the student its excitement and extraordinary character. The exposition is organized in an especially efficient manner; presenting basic complex analysis in around 130 pages; with about 50 exercises. The material constantly relates to and contrasts with that of its sister subject; real analysis. An unusual feature of this book is a short final chapter containing applications of complex analysis to Lie theory.
Since much of the content originated in a one-semester course given at the CUNY Graduate Center; the text will be very suitable for first year graduate students in mathematics who want to learn the basics of this important subject. For advanced undergraduates; there is enough material for a year-long course or; by concentrating on the first three chapters; for one-semester course.
