Book DetailsCollected WorksVolume: 27; 2022; 604 ppMSC: Primary 20; 37; 68
William Thurston's work has had a profound influence on mathematics. He connected whole mathematical subjects in entirely new ways and changed the way mathematicians think about geometry, topology, foliations, group theory, dynamical systems, and the way these areas interact. His emphasis on understanding and imagination in mathematical learning and thinking are integral elements of his distinctive legacy.
This fourpart collection brings together in one place Thurston's major writings, many of which are appearing in publication for the first time. Volumes I–III contain commentaries by the Editors. Volume IV includes a preface by Steven P. Kerckhoff.
Volume III contains William Thurston's papers on dynamics and computer science, and papers written for general audiences. Additional miscellaneous papers are also included, such as his 1967 New College undergraduate thesis, which foreshadows his later work.
ReadershipGraduate students and researchers interested in geometric topology, geometric group theory, lowdimensional topology, and dynamical systems of rational maps.
