The Homology of Hopf Spaces by Richard M. Kane

By Richard M. Kane

This exposition of the speculation of finite Hopf areas info the advance of the topic over the past thirty years, with the homology of such areas as its major topic. the 3 leader components of research within the quantity are: - The research of finite H-spaces with torsion unfastened necessary homology. - The research of finite H-spaces with homology torsion. - the development of finite H-spaces.

Topology and Its Applications by William F. Basener(auth.)

By William F. Basener(auth.)

Discover a special and smooth remedy of topology using a cross-disciplinary approach

carried out lately to appreciate various issues, corresponding to phone biology, superconductors, and robotic movement, topology has been remodeled from a theoretical box that highlights mathematical thought to a subject matter that performs a becoming position in approximately all fields of medical research. relocating from the concrete to the summary, Topology and Its purposes monitors either the wonder and application of topology, first proposing the necessities of topology via its rising function in the new frontiers in examine.

Filling a spot among the educating of topology and its sleek makes use of in real-world phenomena, Topology and Its functions is equipped round the mathematical concept of topology, a framework of rigorous theorems, and transparent, based proofs.

This booklet is the 1st of its style to offer functions in special effects, economics, dynamical structures, condensed subject physics, biology, robotics, chemistry, cosmology, fabric technological know-how, computational topology, and inhabitants modeling, in addition to different components of technology and engineering. lots of those purposes are awarded in not obligatory sections, permitting an teacher to customise the presentation.

the writer offers a variety of topological components, together with point-set topology, geometric topology, differential topology, and algebraic/combinatorial topology. themes inside of those components comprise:

  • Open units
  • Compactness
  • Homotopy
  • Surface category
  • Index concept on surfaces
  • Manifolds and complexes
  • Topological teams
  • The basic team and homology

specific "core instinct" segments in the course of the ebook in brief clarify the fundamental instinct necessary to figuring out numerous issues. A beneficiant variety of figures and examples, a lot of which come from purposes akin to liquid crystals, house probe facts, and special effects, are all on hand from the publisher's internet site.Content:
Chapter 1 Continuity (pages 1–45):
Chapter 2 Compactness and Connectedness (pages 47–78):
Chapter three Manifolds and Complexes (pages 79–157):
Chapter four Homotopy and the Winding quantity (pages 159–218):
Chapter five basic team (pages 219–268):
Chapter 6 Homology (pages 269–311):

Global Analysis on Foliated Spaces by Calvin C. Moore

By Calvin C. Moore

Foliated areas glance in the community like items, yet their international constitution is mostly now not a product, and tangential differential operators are correspondingly extra advanced. within the Nineteen Eighties, Alain Connes based what's referred to now as noncommutative geometry. one of many first effects used to be his generalization of the Atiyah-Singer index theorem to compute the analytic index linked to a tangential (pseudo)-differential operator and an invariant transverse degree on a foliated manifold, by way of topological facts at the manifold and the operator. This ebook provides an entire facts of this gorgeous outcome, generalized to foliated areas (not simply manifolds).

Global surgery formula for the Casson-Walker invariant by Christine Lescop

By Christine Lescop

This booklet provides a brand new lead to three-dimensional topology. it truly is popular that any closed orientated 3-manifold will be acquired by means of surgical procedure on a framed hyperlink in S three. In international surgical procedure formulation for the Casson-Walker Invariant, a functionality F of framed hyperlinks in S three is defined, and it really is confirmed that F continually defines an invariant, lamda ( l ), of closed orientated 3-manifolds. l is then expressed when it comes to formerly recognized invariants of 3-manifolds. For essential homology spheres, l is the invariant brought via Casson in 1985, which allowed him to resolve previous and well-known questions in third-dimensional topology. l turns into easier because the first Betti quantity increases.

As an specific functionality of Alexander polynomials and surgical procedure coefficients of framed hyperlinks, the functionality F extends in a ordinary method to framed hyperlinks in rational homology spheres. it truly is confirmed that F describes the difference of l less than any surgical procedure ranging from a rational homology sphere. hence F yields a world surgical procedure formulation for the Casson invariant.

An Introduction to Differential Manifolds by Jacques Lafontaine

By Jacques Lafontaine

This booklet is an advent to differential manifolds. It supplies reliable preliminaries for extra complicated themes: Riemannian manifolds, differential topology, Lie conception. It presupposes little historical past: the reader is barely anticipated to grasp easy differential calculus, and a bit point-set topology. The e-book covers the most subject matters of differential geometry: manifolds, tangent area, vector fields, differential kinds, Lie teams, and some extra refined themes equivalent to de Rham cohomology, measure idea and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for surfaces.

Its ambition is to provide strong foundations. specifically, the creation of “abstract” notions akin to manifolds or differential types is encouraged through questions and examples from arithmetic or theoretical physics. greater than a hundred and fifty routines, a few of them effortless and classical, a few others extra refined, can help the newbie in addition to the extra specialist reader. suggestions are supplied for many of them.

The publication can be of curiosity to varied readers: undergraduate and graduate scholars for a primary touch to differential manifolds, mathematicians from different fields and physicists who desire to collect a few feeling approximately this pretty theory.
The unique French textual content advent aux variétés différentielles has been a best-seller in its class in France for lots of years.

Jacques Lafontaine used to be successively assistant Professor at Paris Diderot collage and Professor on the college of Montpellier, the place he's almost immediately emeritus. His major learn pursuits are Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry, together with a few facets of mathematical relativity. along with his own learn articles, he was once serious about numerous textbooks and study monographs.
