Books written by Stephen Smale.
Worked in differential topology where he proved the generalized Poincaré conjecture in dimension n≥5: Every closed, n-dimensional manifold homotopy-equivalent to the n-dimensional sphere is homeomorphic to it. Introduced the method of handle-bodies to solve this and related problems.
Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, and an Introduction to Chaos
Hirsch, Devaney, and Smale’s classic Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, and an Introduction to Chaos has been used by professors as the primary text for undergraduate and graduate level courses covering differential equations.
Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, and Linear Algebra
This book is about dynamical aspects of ordinary differential equations and the relations between dynamical systems and certain fields outside pure mathematics.
The Smale Collection: Beauty in Natural Crystals
The acclaimed photography of Jeff Scovil (70 plates) and Steve Smale (30 plates) capture the presence of masterpieces from one of the world's finest private collections--that of celebrated mathematician Steve Smale and his wife Clara.
