This invaluable book contains the collected papers of Stephen Smale. These are divided into eight groups: topology; calculus of variations; dynamics; mechanics; economics; biology, electric circuits and mathematical programming; theory of computation; miscellaneous. In addition, each group contains one or two articles by world leaders on its subject which comment on the influence of Smale's work, and another article by Smale with his own retrospective views.

Homotopy Theory contains all the published mathematical work of J. H. C. Whitehead, written between 1947 and 1955. This volume considers the study of simple homotopy types, particularly the realization of problem for homotopy types. It describes Whitehead's version of homotopy theory in terms of CW-complexes. This book is composed of 21 chapters and begins with an overview of a theorem to Borsuk and the homotopy type of ANR. The subsequent chapters deal with four-dimensional polyhedral, the homotopy type of a special kind of polyhedron, and the combinatorial homotopy I and II. These topics are followed by reviews of other homotopy types, such as group extensions with homotopy operators, cohomology systems, secondary boundary operator, algebraic homotopy, and the G-dual of a semi-exact couple. The last chapters examine the connected complex homotopy types and the second non-vanishing homotopy groups. This book will be of great value to mathematicians.

The Mathematical Works of J. H. C. Whitehead, Volume 2: Complexes and Manifolds contains papers that are related in some way to the classification problem for manifolds, especially the Poincare conjecture, but towards the end one sees the gradual transition in the direction of algebraic topology. This volume includes all Whitehead's published work up to the year 1941, as well as a few later papers. The book begins with a list of Whitehead's works, in chronological order of writing. This is followed by separate chapters on topics such as analytical complexes; duality and intersection chains in combinatorial analysis situs; three-dimensional manifolds; doubled knots; certain sets of elements in a free group; certain invariants introduced by Reidemeister; and the asphericity of regions in a 3-sphere. Also included are chapters on the homotopy type of manifolds; the incidence matrices, nuclei and homotopy types; vector fields on the n-sphere; and operators in relative homotopy groups.

Algebraic and Classical Topology contains all the published mathematical work of J. H. C. Whitehead, written between 1952 and 1960. This volume is composed of 21 chapters, which represent two groups of papers. The first group, written between 1952 and 1957, is principally concerned with fiber spaces and the Spanier-Whitehead S-theory. In the second group, written between 1957 and 1960, Whitehead returns to classical topology after a long interval, and participates in the renewed assault on the problems which fascinated him most. This book will prove useful to mathematicians.

The Mathematical Works of J. H. C. Whitehead, Volume 1: Differential Geometry contains all of Whitehead's published work on differential geometry, along with some papers on algebras. Most of these were written in the period 1929-1937, but a few later articles are included. The book begins with a list of Whitehead's works, in chronological order of writing as well as a biographical note by M. H. A. Newman and Barbara Whitehead, and a mathematical appreciation by John Milnor. This is followed by separate chapters on topics such as linear connections; a method of obtaining normal representations for a projective connection; representation of projective spaces; convex regions in the geometry of paths; locally homogeneous spaces in differential geometry; and the decomposition of an infinitesimal group. Also included are chapters on locally homogeneous spaces in differential geometry; Maurer's equations; linear associative algebras; an expression of Hopf's invariant as an integral; and normalizators of transformation groups.
