about this item

Knudson bases his introduction to Morse theory on John Milnor's Morse Theory and Yukio Matsumoto's An Introduction to Morse Theory, both of which he considers elegant masterpieces. Then he uses that base to explain modern discrete Morse theory. He considers smooth Morse theory from the perspectives of first steps, fundamental results in Morse theory, topological consequences, homology, and piecewise linear Morse theory. His topics in discrete Morse theory are first steps, topological consequences, algorithms, and applications. Most of the material should be accessible to people with a knowledge of topology and multi-variate calculus, he says. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
