Title:Probability on Compact Lie Groups [electronic resource]
Author(s): David Applebaum
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Probability theory on compact Lie groups deals with the interaction between chance and symmetry, a beautiful area of mathematics of great interest in its own sake but which is now also finding increasing applicationsin statistics and engineering (par ticularly with respect to signal processing). The author gives a comprehensive introduction to some of the principle areas of study, with an emphasis on applicability. The most important topicspresented are: the study of measures via the non-commutative F ourier transform, existence and regularity of densities, properties of random walks and convolution semigroups of measures, and the statistical problem of deconvolution. Theemphasis on compact (rather than general) Lie groups helps readers to get acquaint ed with what is widely seen as a difficult field but which is also justified by the wealth of interesting results at this level and the importance ofthese groups for applications. The book is primarily aimed at researchers working in probability, stochast ic analysis and harmonic analysis on groups. It will also be of interest to mathematicians working in Lie theory and physicists,statisticians and engineers who are working on related applications. A background in first year graduate level measure theoreti c probability and functional analysis is essential a background in Lie groups and representation theory iscertainly helpful but the first two chapters also offer orientation in these subjects

Title:Locally Convex Spaces [electronic resource]
Author(s): M. Scott Osborne
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:For most practicing analysts who use functional analysis, the restriction to Banach spaces seen in most real analysis graduate texts is not enough for their research. This graduate text, while focusing on locally convextopological vector spaces, is i ntended to cover most of the general theory needed for application to other areas of analysis. Normed vector spaces, Banach spaces, and Hilbert spaces are all examples of classes of locally convexspaces, which is why this is an important topic in function al analysis. While this graduate text focuses on what is needed for applications, it also shows the beauty of the subject and motivates the reader with exercises of varyingdifficulty. Key topics covered include point set topology, topological vector space s, the HahnBanach theorem, seminorms and Frchet spaces, uniform boundedness, and dual spaces. The prerequisite for this text is the Banach spacetheory typically taught in a beginning graduate real analysis course
Contents:1 Topological Groups
2 Topological Vector Spaces
3 Locally Convex Spaces
4 The Classics
5 Dual Spaces
6 Duals of Fr chet Spaces
A Topological Oddities
B Closed Graphs in Topological Groups
C The Other KreinSmulian Theorem

Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Symplectic and contact geometry naturally emerged from the mathematical description of classical physics. The discovery of new rigidity phenomena and properties satisfied by these geometric structures launched a new researchfield worldwide.

The lectures of the Summer School in Nantes (June2011) and of the CAST Summer School in Budapest (July 2012) provide a nice panorama of many aspects of the present status of contact and symplectic topology. The notes of the minicourses offer a gentle introduction to topics which havedeveloped in an amazing speed in the recent past. These topics include 3- dimensional and higher dimensional contact topology, Fukaya categories, asymptotically holomorphic methods in contact topology, bordered Floer homology, embeddedcontact homology, and flexibility results for Stein manifolds
Contents:Mathematical contributions from V.I. Arnold
Topological methods in 3
dimensional contact geometry

Title:The Compressed Word Problem for Groups [electronic resource]
Author(s): Markus Lohrey
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The Compressed Word Problem for Groups provides a detailed exposition of known results on the compressed word problem, emphasizing efficient algorithms for the compressed word problem in various groups.The authorpresents thenecessary background along with the most recent results on the compressed word problem to create a cohesive self-contained book accessible to computer scientists as well as mathematicians. Readers will quickly reach the frontierofcurrent research which makes the book especially ap pealing for students looking for a currently active research topic at theintersection of group theory and computer science. The word problem introduced in 1910 by Max Dehnisone of the most important decision problems in group theory. For many groups, high ly efficient algorithms for the word problem exist. In recent years, a new technique based on data compression for providing more efficient algorithmsfor word problems, has been developed, by representing long words over group generators in a compressed f orm using a straight-line program. Algorithmic techniques used for manipulating compressed words has shown that the compressedword problem can be solved in polynomial time for a large class of groups such as free groups, graph groups and nilpotent groups. These results have important implications for algorithmic questions related to automorphism groups

Note:In the field of Dynamical Systems, nonlinear iterative processes play an important role. Nonlinear mappings can be found as immediate models for many systems from different scientific areas, such as engineering, economics,biology, or can also be obta ined via numerical methods permitting to solve non-linear differential equations. In both cases, the understanding of specific dynamical behaviors and phenomena is of the greatest interest for scientists.This volume contains papers that were presented at the International Workshop on Nonlinear Maps and their Applications (NOMA 2011) held in vora, Portugal, on September 15-16, 2011. This kind of collaborative effort is of paramountimportance in promoting communication among the various groups that work in dynamical systems and networks in their research theoretical studies as well as for applications. This volume is suitable for graduate students as well asresearchers in the field

Note:The study of qualitative aspects of PDE's has always attracted much attention from the early beginnings. More recently, once basic issues about PDE's, such as existence, uniqueness and stability of solutions, have been understoodquite well, research on topological and/or geometric properties of their solutions has become more intense. The study of these issues is attracting the interest of an increasing number of researchers and is now a broad andwell-established research area, with contributions tha t often come from experts from disparate areas of mathematics, such as differential and convex geometry, functional analysis, calculus of variations, mathematical physics, to name afew. This volume collects a selection of original results and informative surveys by a group of international specialists in the field, analyzes new trends and techniques and aims at promoting scientific collaboration and stimulatingfuture developments and perspectives in this very active area of research

Title:Lie Theory and Its Applications in Physics [electronic resource] : IX International Workshop

Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Traditionally, Lie Theory is a tool to build mathematical models for physical systems. Recently, the trend is towards geometrisation of the mathematical description of physical systems and objects. A geometric approach to asystem yields in general so me notion of symmetry which is very helpful in understanding its structure. Geometrisation and symmetries are meant in their broadest sense, i.e., classical geometry, differential geometry, groups and quantumgroups, infinite-dimensional (super-)algebras, and their representations. Furthermore, we include the necessary tools from functional analysis and number theory. This is a large interdisciplinary and interrelated field. Samples ofthese new trends are presented in this volume, based on contributions fr om the Workshop Lie Theory and Its Applications in Physics held near Varna, Bulgaria, in June 2011. This book is suitable for an extensive audience ofmathematicians, mathematical physicists, theoretical physicists, and researchers in the field of Lie Theo ry

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph provides an introduction to the theory of Clifford algebras, with an emphasis on its connections with the theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras. The book starts with a detailed presentation of the main results onsymmetric bilinear form s and Clifford algebras. It develops the spin groups and the spin representation, culminating in Cartans famous triality automorphism for the group Spin(8). The discussion of enveloping algebras includes apresentation of Petraccis proof of the PoincarBirk hoffWitt theorem. This is followed by discussions of Weil algebras, Chern--Weil theory, the quantum Weil algebra, and the cubic Dirac operator. The applications to Lietheory include Duflos theorem for the case of quadratic Lie algebras, multiplets of rep resentations, and Dirac induction. The last part of the book is an account of Kostants structure theory of the Clifford algebra over asemisimple Lie algebra. It describes his Clifford algebra analogue of the HopfKoszulSamelson theorem, and explains his fa scinating conjecture relating the Harish-Chandra projection for Clifford algebras to the principalsl(2) subalgebra. Aside from these beautiful applications, the book will serve as a convenient and up-to-date reference for background material from Cliffor d theory, relevant for students and researchers in mathematics andphysics

Note:This welcome boon for students of algebraic topology cuts a much-needed central path between other texts whose treatment of the classification theorem for compact surfaces is either too formalized and complex for those withoutdetailed background know ledge, or too informal to afford students a comprehensive insight into the subject. Its dedicated, student-centred approach details a near-complete proof of this theorem, widely admired for its efficacy andformal beauty. The authors present the technical tools needed to deploy the method effectively as well as demonstrating their use in a clearly structured, worked example. Ideal for students whose mastery of algebraic topology may be awork-in-progress, the text introduces key notions such as fundamental groups, homology groups, and the Euler-Poincar characteristic. These prerequisites are the subject of detailed appendices that enable focused, discrete learningwhere it is required, without interrupting the carefully planned structure of the core expositi on. Gently guiding readers through the principles, theory, and applications of the classification theorem, the authors aim to foster genuineconfidence in its use and in so doing encourage readers to move on to a deeper exploration of the versatile and val uable techniques available in algebraic topology

Note:Poisson structures appear in a large variety of contexts, ranging from string theory, classical/quantum mechanics and differential geometry to abstract algebra, algebraic geometry and representation theory. In each one of thesecontexts, it turns out that the Poisson structure is not a theoretical artifact, but a key element which, unsolicited, comes along with the problem that is investigated, and its delicate properties are decisive for the solution to theproblem in nearly all cases. Poisson Structu res is the first book that offers a comprehensive introduction to the theory, as well as an overview of the different aspects of Poisson structures.The first part coverssolid foundations,the central part consists of a detailed exposition of the different known types of Poisson structures and of the (usually mathematical) contexts in which they appear, and the final part is devoted to the two main applications ofPoisson structures (integrable systems and deformation quantization). The clear structure of th e book makes it adequate for readers who come across Poisson structures in their research or for graduate students or advanced researcherswhoare interested in anintroduction to the many facets and applications of Poisson structures

Note:Nonlinear functional analysis is an important branch of contemporary mathematics. It's related to topology, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, groups, dynamical systems, differential geometry,measure theory, and more. In this book, the author presents some new and interesting results on fundamental methods in nonlinear functional analysis, namely variational, topological and partial order methods, which have been usedextensively to solve existence of solutions for ellipt ic equations, wave equations, Schrdinger equations, Hamiltonian systems etc., and are also used to study the existence of multiple solutions and properties of solutions. This bookis useful for researchers and graduate students in the field of nonlinear fu nctional analysis. Chapter 1 contains preliminaries. In Chapter 2, three kinds of operators are introduced: increasing operators, decreasing operators, andmixed monotone operators. In Chapter 3, the minimax methods are presented and in Chapter 4, the auth or uses bifurcation and critical point theory to study structures of the solutions of elliptic equations. Chapter 5 is concerned with aclass of MongeAmpre equations. In Chapter 6, the superlinear system of Hammerstein integral equations and applications i s studied. Chapter 7 is devoted to the DancerFucik spectrum. In Chapter 8, some results on sign-changingsolutions are introduced. In Chapter 9, a local minimizer problem of a functional in differential topology is studied. Chapter 10 focuses on a class of nonlocal Kirchhoff elliptic problems via different methods. In Chapter 11, thefocus is on free boundary problems, Schrdinger systems from BoseEinstein condensate and competing systems with many species

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The section conjecture in anabelian geometry, announced by Grothendieck in 1983, is concerned with a description of the set of rational points of a hyperbolic algebraic curve over a number field in terms of the arithmetic of itsfundamental group. Whi le the conjecture is still open today in 2012, its study has revealed interesting arithmetic for curves and opened connections, for example, to the question whether the Brauer-Manin obstruction is the only oneagainst rational points on curves. This monogr aph begins by laying the foundations for the space of sections of the fundamental group extension of an algebraic variety. Then, arithmetic assumptions on the base field are imposed and thelocal-to-global approach is studied in detail. The monograph concl udes by discussing analogues of the section conjecture created by varying the base field or the type of variety, or by using a characteristic quotient or its birationalanalogue in lieu of the fundamental group extension

Note:This manuscript is devoted to classifying the isomorphism classes of the virtually cyclic subgroups of the braid groups of the 2-sphere. As well as enabling us to understand better the global structure of these groups, it marks animportant step in th e computation of the K-theory of their group rings. The classification itself is somewhat intricate, due to the rich structure of the finite subgroups of these braid groups, and is achieved by an in-depth analysisof their group-theoretical and topological properties, such as their centralisers, normalisers and cohomological periodicity. Another important aspect of our work is the close relationship of the braid groups with mapping class groups.This manuscript will serve as a reference for the study of bra id groups of low-genus surfaces, and isaddressed to graduate students and researchers in low-dimensional, geometric and algebraic topology and in algebra

The category of papers on pseudo-differential operators contains such topics as elliptic operators assigned to diffeomorphisms of smooth manifolds, analysis on singular manifoldswith edges, heat kernels and Green functions of sub-Lapla cians on the Heisenberg group and Lie groups with more complexities than but closely related to the Heisenberg group, L^p-boundedness of pseudo-differential operators on thetorus, and pseudo-differential operators related to time-frequency analysis. The s econd group of papers contains various classes of distributions and algebras of generalized functions with applications in linear and nonlineardifferential equations, initial value problems and boundary value problems, stochastic and Malliavin-type differ ential equations. This second group of papers is related to the third collection of papers via the setting ofColombeau-type spaces and algebras in which microlocal analysis is developed by means of techniques in asymptotics.

Note:This monograph lays down the foundations of the theory of complex Kleinian groups, a newborn area of mathematics whose origin can be traced back to the work of Riemann, Poincar, Picard and many others. Kleinian groupsare, classically, discrete groups of conformal automorphisms of the Riemann sphere, and these can themselves be regarded as groups of holomorphic automorphisms of the complex projective line CP1. When we go into higher dimensions,there is a dichotomy: Should we look at conformal automorp hisms of the n-sphere? or should we look at holomorphic automorphisms of higher dimensional complex projective spaces? These two theories differ in higher dimensions. In thefirst case we are talking about groups of isometries of real hyperbolic spaces, an area of mathematics with a long-standing tradition in the second, about an area of mathematics that is still in its infancy, and this is the focus ofstudy in this monograph. It brings together several important areas of mathematics, e.g. classical Kleini an group actions, complex hyperbolic geometry, crystallographic groups and the uniformization problem for complex manifolds

Note:This book is intended for a one-year graduate course on Lie groups and Lie algebras. The book goes beyond the representation theory of compact Lie groups, which is the basis of many texts, and provides a carefully chosen range ofmaterial to give the student the bigger picture. The book is organized to allow different paths through the material depending on one's interests.This second edition has substantial new material, including improved discussions ofunderlying principles, streamlining of some pro ofs, and many results and topics that were not in the first edition. For compact Lie groups, the book covers the PeterWeyl theorem, Lie algebra, conjugacy of maximal tori, the Weylgroup, roots and weights, Weyl character formula, the fundamental group and more. The book continues with the study of complex analytic groups and general noncompact Lie groups, covering the Bruhat decomposition, Coxeter groups, flagvarieties, symmetric spaces, Satake diagrams, embeddings of Lie groups and spin. Other topics tha t are treated are symmetric function theory, the representation theory of the symmetric group, FrobeniusSchur duality andGL(n)GL(m) duality with many applications including some in random matrix theory, branching rules, Toeplitz determinants, combinatoric s of tableaux, Gelfand pairs, Hecke algebras, the philosophy of cusp forms and thecohomology of Grassmannians. An appendix introduces the reader to the use of Sage mathematical software for Lie group computations

This second edition includes a chapter on measure-theoretic probability theory, plus brief treatments of the Banach-Tarski paradox, the Henstock-Kurzweil integral, the Daniell integral, and theexistence of liftings. Measure Theory provides a soli d background for study in both functional analysis and probability theory and is an excellent resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics. Theprerequisites for this book are basic courses in point-set topology and in analysis, and the appendices present a thorough review ofessential background material. The author aims to present a straightforward treatment of thepart of measure theory necessary for analysis and probability' assuming only basic knowledge of analysis and topol ogy...Each chapter includes numerous well-chosen exercises, varying from very routine practice problems to importantextensions and developments of the theory for the difficult ones there are helpful hints. It is the reviewer's opinion that the author has succeeded in his aim. In spite of its lack of new results, the selection and presentation ofmaterials makes this a useful book for an introduction to measure and integration theory. Mathematical Reviews (Review of the First Edition) The book is a compreh ensive and clearly written textbook on measure andintegration...The book contains appendices on set theory, algebra, calculus and topology in Euclidean spaces, topological and metric spaces, and the Bochner integral.

Note:Asymptotic Geometric Analysis is concerned with the geometric and linear properties of finite dimensional objects, normed spaces, and convex bodies, especially with the asymptotics of their various quantitative parameters as thedimension tends to inf inity. The deep geometric, probabilistic, and combinatorial methods developed here are used outside the field in many areas of mathematics and mathematical sciences. The Fields Institute Thematic Program in theFall of 2010 continued an established traditi on of previous large-scale programs devoted to the same general research direction. The main directions of the program included: * Asymptotic theory of convexity and normed spaces *Concentration of measure and isoperimetric inequalities, optimal transport ation approach * Applications of the concept of concentration * Connections with transformation groups and Ramsey theory * Geometrization of probability * Randommatrices * Connection with asymptotic combinatorics and complexity theory These directions are represented in this volume and reflect the present state of this important area of research. It will be of benefit to researchers working ina wide range of mathematical sciencesin particular functional analysis, combinatorics, convex geometry, dynamical systems, operator algebras, and computer science

Note:Drinfeld Moduli Schemes and Automorphic Forms: The Theory of Elliptic Modules with Applications is based on the authors original work establishing the correspondence between ell-adic rank r Galois representations andautomorphic representations of GL( r) over a function field, in the local case, and,in the global case, under a restriction at a single place. It develops Drinfelds theory of elliptic modules, their moduli schemes and coveringschemes, the simple trace formula, the fixed point formula, as w ell as the congruence relations and a simpleconverse theorem, not yet published anywhere. This version, based on a recent course taught by the author at TheOhioState University, is updated with references to research that has extended and developed the or iginal work. The use of the theory of elliptic modules in the present work makes it accessible to graduate students, and it will serve as avaluable resource to facilitate anentrance to this fascinating area of mathematics

Title:Uniform Spaces and Measures [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jan Pachl
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Uniform Spaces and Measures addresses the need for an accessible and comprehensive exposition of the theory of uniform measures -- a need that became more critical when uniform measures recently reemerged in new results inabstract harmonic analysis. Until now, results about uniform measures have been scattered throughout many papers written by a number of authors, some unpublished, using a variety of definitions and notations. Uniform measures arefunctionals on the space of bounded uniformly continuo us functions on a uniform space. They are a common generalization of several classes of measures and measure-like functionals studied in topological measure theory, probabilitytheory, and abstract harmonic analysis. They offer a natural framework for resu lts about topologies on spaces of measures and about the continuity of convolution of measures on topological groups and semitopological semigroups. Thisbook can serve as a reference for the theory of uniform measures. It includes a self-contained develop ment of the theory with complete proofs, starting with the necessary parts of the theory of uniform spaces. It also includes severalnew results, and presents diverse results from many sources organized in a logical whole. The content is also suitable for graduate or advanced undergraduate courses on selected topics in topology and functional analysis, and containsa number of exercises with hints to solutions as well as several open problems with suggestions for further research

Note:A Course in Topological Combinatorics is the first undergraduate textbook on the field of topological combinatorics, a subject that has become an active and innovative research area in mathematics over the last thirty years withgrowing applications i n math, computer science, and other applied areas. Topological combinatorics is concerned with solutions to combinatorial problems by applying topological tools. In most cases these solutions are very elegant andthe connection between combinatorics and to pology often arises as an unexpected surprise. The textbook covers topics such as fair division, graph coloring problems, evasiveness of graph properties, and embedding problems from discretegeometry. The text contains a large number of figures that suppo rt the understanding of concepts and proofs. In many cases several alternative proofs for the same result are given, and each chapter ends with a series of exercises. Theextensive appendix makes the book completely self-contained. The textbook is well sui ted for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate mathematics students. Previous knowledge in topology or graph theory is helpful but notnecessary. The text may be used as a basis for a one- or two-semester course as well as a supplementary text for a topology or combinatorics class

Title:New Foundations in Mathematics [electronic resource] : The Geometric Concept of Number

Note:The first book of its kind, New Foundations in Mathematics: The Geometric Concept of Number uses geometric algebra to present an innovative approach to elementary and advanced mathematics. Geometric algebra offers a simple androbust means of expressi ng a wide range of ideas in mathematics, physics, and engineering. In particular, geometric algebra extends the real number system to include the concept of direction, which underpins much of modern mathematicsand physics. Much of the material presented h as been developed from undergraduate courses taught by the author over the years in linear algebra, theory of numbers, advanced calculus and vector calculus, numerical analysis, modernabstract algebra, and differential geometry. The principal aim of this book is to present these ideas in a freshly coherent and accessible manner. The book begins with a discussion of modular numbers (clock arithmetic) and modularpolynomials. This leads to the idea of a spectral basis, the complex and hyperbolic numbers, and finally to geometric algebra, which lays the groundwork for the remainder of the text.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Configurations can be studied from a graph-theoretical viewpoint via the so-called Levi graphs and lie at the heart of graphs, groups, surfaces, and geometries, all of which are very active areas of mathematical exploration. Inthis self-contained tex tbook, algebraic graph theory is used to introduce groups topological graph theory is used to explore surfaces and geometric graph theory is implemented to analyze incidence geometries. After a preview ofconfigurations in Chapter 1, a concise introduction to graph theory is presented in Chapter 2, followed by a geometric introduction to groups in Chapter 3. Maps and surfaces are combinatorially treated in Chapter 4. Chapter 5introduces the concept of incidence structure through vertex colored graphs, and the combinatorial aspects of classical configurations are studied.Geometric aspects, some historical remarks, references, and applicationsof classicalconfigurationsappear in the last chapter. With over two hundred illustrations, challenging exercises at t he end of each chapter, a comprehensive bibliography, and a set of open problems, Configurations from a Graphical Viewpoint iswell suited for a graduate graph theory course, an advanced undergraduate seminar, or a self-contained reference for mathematicia ns and researchers

Title:The Schrdinger-Virasoro Algebra [electronic resource] Mathematical structure and dynamical Schrdinger symmetries

Note:This monograph provides the first up-to-date and self-contained presentation of a recently discovered mathematical structurethe Schrdinger-Virasoro algebra. Just as Poincar invariance or conformal (Virasoro) invarianceplay a key role in understanding , respectively, elementary particles and two-dimensional equilibrium statistical physics, this algebra of non-relativistic conformal symmetries may be expected to apply itself naturally to the study ofsome models of non-equilibrium statistical physics, or more specifically in the context of recent developments related to the non-relativistic AdS/CFT correspondence. The study of the structure of this infinite-dimensional Liealgebra touches upon topics as various as statistical physics, vertex algebras, Po isson geometry, integrable systems and supergeometry as well as representation theory, the cohomology of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, and thespectral theory of Schrdinger operators.

Note:Motivated by the importance of the Campbell, Baker, Hausdorff, Dynkin Theorem in many different branches of Mathematics and Physics (Lie group-Lie algebra theory, linear PDEs, Quantum and Statistical Mechanics, NumericalAnalysis, Theoretical Physics, Control Theory, sub-Riemannian Geometry), this monograph is intended to: 1) fully enable readers (graduates or specialists, mathematicians, physicists or applied scientists, acquainted with Algebra ornot) to understand and apply the statements and numero us corollaries of the main result 2) provide a wide spectrum of proofs from the modern literature, comparing different techniques and furnishing a unifying point of view andnotation 3) provide a thorough historical background of the results, together with unknown facts about the effective early contributions by Schur, Poincar, Pascal, Campbell, Baker, Hausdorff and Dynkin 4) give an outlook on theapplications, especially in Differential Geometry (Lie group theory) and Analysis (PDEs of subelliptic type) 5 ) quickly enable the reader, through a description of the state-of-art and open problems, to understand the modernliterature concerning a theorem which, though having its roots in the beginning of the20th century, has not ceased to provide new problems an d applications. The book assumes some undergraduate-level knowledge of algebra and analysis,but apart from that is self-contained. Part II of the monograph is devoted to the proofs of the algebraic background. The monograph may therefore provide a tool fo r beginners in Algebra

Title:Frames and Locales [electronic resource] : Topology without points
Author(s): Jorge Picado
Ale Pultr
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Until the mid-twentieth century, topological studies were focused on the theory of suitable structures on sets of points. The concept of open set exploited since the 1920s offered an expression of the geometric intuition of arealistic place (spot, gr ain) of non-trivial extent. Imitating the behaviour of open sets and their relationsled to a new approach to topology flourishing since the end of the 1950s. It has proved to be beneficial in manyrespects. Neglecting points, only little information was lo st, while deeper insights have been gained moreover, many results previously dependent onchoice principles became constructive. The result is often a smoother, rather than amore entangled, theory. No monograph of this nature has appeared since Johnstone's celebrated Stone Spaces in 1983. The present book is intended as a bridge from that time to the present. Most of the material appears here in book formfor the first time or is presented from new points of view. Two appendices provide an introduction to s ome requisite concepts from order and category theories

Title:Syzygies and Homotopy Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): F.E.A Johnson
Date:2012
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The most important invariant of a topological space is its fundamental group. When this is trivial, the resulting homotopy theory is well researched and familiar. In the general case, however, homotopy theory over nontrivialfundamental groups is much more problematic and far less well understood. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory explores the problem of nonsimply connected homotopy in the first nontrivial cases and presents, for the first time, a systematicrehabilitation of Hilbert's method of syzygies in the context of non-simply connected homotopy theory. The first part of the book is theoretical, formulated to allow a general finitely presented group as a fundamental group. Theinnovation here is to regard syzygies as stable modules rather than minimal modules. Inevitably this forces a reconsideration of the problems of noncancellation these are confronted in the second, practical, part of the book. Inparticular, the second part of the book considers how the theory works out in detail for the specific e xamples Fn F where Fn is a free group of rank n and F is finite. Another innovation is to parametrize the first syzygy in terms ofthe more familiar class of stably free modules. Furthermore, detailed description of these stably free modules is effected by a suitable modification of the method of Milnor squares. The theory developed within this book has potentialapplications in various branches of algebra, including homological algebra, ring theory and K-theory. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory will be of inte rest to researchers and also to graduate students with a background in algebra andalgebraic topology

Note:Originally published inthe 1980s, Singularities of DifferentiableMaps: Monodromy and Asymptotics of Integrals was thesecond oftwovolumes that togetherformed a translation of the authors'influential Russian monographon singularity theory.This uncorrec ted softcover reprint of the work brings its still-relevant content back into the literature, making it availableand affordableto a global audience of researchers and practitioners. Whilethe first volume of this title, subtitled Classification of Critical Points, Caustics and Wave Fronts, contained the zoology of differentiable mapsthat is, was devoted to a description of what, where, and how singularities could beencounteredthis second volume concentrates on elements of theanatomy and physiology of singu larities of differentiable functions. The questions considered here are about the structure of singularities and how they function. Inthe first part the authors consider the topological structure of isolated critical points of holomorphic functions: vanis hing cycles distinguished bases intersection matricesmonodromy groupsthe variation operatorand theirinterconnections and method of calculation. The second part is devoted to the study of the asymptotic behavior of integrals of the method of stationary pha se, which is widely met within applications. The third and last part dealswith integrals evaluated over level manifolds in a neighborhood of the critical point of a holomorphic function. Thismonograph is suitablefor mathematicians, researchers, postgradua tes, and specialists in the areas ofmechanics, physics, technology, and other sciences dealing with the theory of singularities of differentiable maps
