Noncommutative Geometry, Quantum Fields and Motives
by Alain Connes, Matilde Marcolli
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2007
Number of pages: 705
The unifying theme of this book is the interplay among noncommutative geometry, physics, and number theory. The two main objects of investigation are spaces where both the noncommutative and the motivic aspects come to play a role: space-time, where the guiding principle is the problem of developing a quantum theory of gravity, and the space of primes, where one can regard the Riemann Hypothesis as a long-standing problem motivating the development of new geometric tools.

In this essay we wish to embark on the telling of a story which, almost certainly, stands only at its beginning. We shall discuss the links and the interaction between one very old subject, physics, and a much newer one, topology.

An introduction to the ideas of microlocal analysis and the related symplectic geometry, with an emphasis on the role which these ideas play in formalizing the transition between the mathematics of classical dynamics and that of quantum mechanics.

The definitive treatment of the revolutionary approach to measure theory, geometry, and mathematical physics. Ideal for anyone who wants to know what noncommutative geometry is, what it can do, or how it can be used in various areas of mathematics.
