**Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology**

by

**Andrew Ranicki**-

**Cambridge University Press**

Noncommutative localization is a technique for constructing new rings by inverting elements, matrices and more generally morphisms of modules. The applications to topology are via the noncommutative localizations of the fundamental group rings.

**Optimization Algorithms on Matrix Manifolds**

by

**P.-A. Absil, R. Mahony, R. Sepulchre**-

**Princeton University Press**

Many science and engineering problems can be rephrased as optimization problems on matrix search spaces endowed with a manifold structure. This book shows how to exploit the structure of such problems to develop efficient numerical algorithms.
