Professor Atiyah is one of the greatest living mathematicians and is renowned in the mathematical world. He is a recipient of the Fields Medal, the mathematical equivalent of the Nobel Prize, and is still actively involved in the mathematics community. His huge number of published papers, focusing on the areas of algebraic geometry and topology, have here been collected into seven volumes, with the first five volumes divided thematically and the sixth and seventh arranged by date. This seven volume set of the collected works of Professor Sir Michael Atiyah, includes: Collected Works: Volume 1: Early Papers; General Papers Collected Works: Volume 2: K-Theory Collected Works: Volume 3: Index Theory: 1 Collected Works: Volume 4: Index Theory: 2 Collected Works: Volume 5: Gauge Theories Collected Works: Volume 6: Publications between 1987 and 2002 New for 2014: Collected Works: Volume 7: 2002-2013, including Sir Michael's work on skyrmions; K-theory and cohomology; geometric models of matter; curvature, cones and characteristic numbers; and reflections on the work of Riemann, Einstein and Bott.
