Singularities in Geometry and Topology: Strasbourg 2009 by Vincent Blanloeil, Toru Ohmoto

By Vincent Blanloeil, Toru Ohmoto

This quantity arises from the 5th Franco-Japanese Symposium on Singularities, held in Strasbourg in August 2009. The convention introduced jointly a world staff of researchers, as a rule from France and Japan, engaged on singularities in algebraic geometry, analytic geometry and topology. The convention additionally featured the JSPS discussion board on Singularities and functions, which aimed to introduce a few fresh purposes of singularity concept to physics and information. This e-book includes examine papers and brief lecture notes on complicated subject matters on singularities. a few surveys on functions that have been offered on the JSPS discussion board also are integrated. one of the subject matters lined are splice floor singularities, b-functions, equisingularity, degenerating households of Riemann surfaces, hyperplane preparations, combined singularities, jet schemes, noncommutative blow-ups, attribute periods of singular areas, and functions to geometric optics, cosmology, and studying idea. Graduate scholars who desire to find out about a variety of methods to singularities, in addition to specialists within the box and researchers in different parts of arithmetic and technological know-how, will locate the contributions to this quantity a wealthy resource for extra research and study

Minimal submanifolds and related topics by Yuanlong Xin

By Yuanlong Xin

The Bernstein challenge and the Plateau challenge are vital subject matters within the idea of minimum submanifolds. this crucial booklet provides the Douglas–Rado strategy to the Plateau challenge, however the major emphasis is at the Bernstein challenge and its new advancements in a number of instructions: the worth distribution of the Gauss picture of a minimum floor in Euclidean 3-space, Simons' paintings for minimum picture hypersurfaces, and author's personal contributions to Bernstein kind theorems for greater codimension. the writer additionally introduces a few similar subject matters, akin to submanifolds with parallel suggest curvature, Weierstrass variety illustration for surfaces of suggest curvature 1 in hyperbolic 3-space, and distinctive Lagrangian submanifolds.

2-knots and their groups by Jonathan A. Hillman

By Jonathan A. Hillman

To assault definite difficulties in four-dimensional knot idea the writer attracts on quite a few concepts, concentrating on knots in S^T4, whose basic teams comprise abelian general subgroups. Their type comprises the main geometrically attractive and most sensible understood examples. additionally, it truly is attainable to use contemporary paintings in algebraic how to those difficulties. New paintings in 4-dimensional topology is utilized in later chapters to the matter of classifying 2-knots.

Topology and Geometry: Commemorating Sistag : Singapore by A. J. Berrick, Man Chun Leung, Xingwang Xu

By A. J. Berrick, Man Chun Leung, Xingwang Xu

This ebook provides nineteen refereed articles written by way of individuals within the Singapore overseas Symposium in Topology and Geometry (SISTAG), held July 2-6, 2001, on the nationwide college of Singapore. instead of being an easy image of the assembly within the type of a lawsuits, it serves as a commemorative quantity including papers chosen to teach the variety and intensity of the maths awarded at SISTAG. The booklet comprises articles on low-dimensional topology, algebraic, differential and symplectic geometry, and algebraic topology. whereas papers mirror the point of interest of the convention, many files written after SISTAG and incorporated during this quantity symbolize the most recent pondering within the fields of topology and geometry.While illustration from Pacific Rim international locations is powerful, the record of members is overseas in scope and contains many famous specialists. This quantity is of curiosity to graduate scholars and mathematicians operating within the fields of algebraic, differential and symplectic geometry, algebraic, geometric and low-dimensional topology, and mathematical physics

Topological nonlinear analysis II : degree, singularity, and by Michele Matzeu, Alfonso Vignoli

By Michele Matzeu, Alfonso Vignoli

The most goal of the current quantity is to provide a survey of a few of the main major achievements received via topological equipment in nonlin­ ear research over the last 3 many years. it's meant, a minimum of in part, as a continuation of Topological Nonlinear research: measure, Singularity and Varia­ tions, released in 1995. The survey articles provided are fascinated about 3 major streams of analysis, that's topological measure, singularity conception and variational equipment, They mirror the non-public style of the authors, them all popular and amazing experts. a standard characteristic of those articles is to begin with a ancient creation and finish with fresh effects, giving a dynamic photograph of the cutting-edge on those issues. allow us to point out the truth that lots of the fabrics during this booklet have been pre­ sented via the authors on the ''Second Topological research Workshop on measure, Singularity and adaptations: advancements of the final 25 Years,'' held in June 1995 at Villa Tuscolana, Frascati, close to Rome.

Geometry and topology of manifolds by Hans U. Boden, Ian Hambleton, Andrew J. Nicas, B. Doug Park

By Hans U. Boden, Ian Hambleton, Andrew J. Nicas, B. Doug Park

This booklet comprises expository papers that supply an updated account of contemporary advancements and open difficulties within the geometry and topology of manifolds, besides numerous learn articles that current new effects showing in released shape for the 1st time. The unifying topic is the matter of realizing manifolds in low dimensions, particularly in dimensions 3 and 4, and the options comprise algebraic topology, surgical procedure idea, Donaldson and Seiberg-Witten gauge conception, Heegaard Floer homology, touch and symplectic geometry, and Gromov-Witten invariants. The articles accumulated for this quantity have been contributed through individuals of the convention 'Geometry and Topology of Manifolds' held at McMaster collage on could 14-18, 2004 and are consultant of the various very good talks added on the convention.

An introduction to topology and homotopy by Allan J. Sieradski

By Allan J. Sieradski

This article is an creation to topology and homotopy. issues are built-in right into a coherent complete and built slowly so scholars are usually not crushed. the 1st half the textual content treats the topology of whole metric areas, together with their hyperspaces of sequentially compact subspaces. the second one half the textual content develops the homotopy type. there are lots of examples and over 900 workouts, representing quite a lot of trouble. This publication may be of curiosity to undergraduates and researchers in arithmetic.

Knot Theory and Its Applications (Modern Birkhauser by Kunio Murasugi

By Kunio Murasugi

This ebook introduces the learn of knots, offering insights into fresh functions in DNA examine and graph idea. It units forth primary evidence similar to knot diagrams, braid representations, Seifert surfaces, tangles, and Alexander polynomials. It additionally covers newer advancements and targeted themes, akin to chord diagrams and masking areas. the writer avoids complicated mathematical terminology and complicated suggestions in algebraic topology and crew concept. a number of diagrams and routines aid readers comprehend and practice the speculation. every one bankruptcy encompasses a complement with attention-grabbing ancient and mathematical reviews.

The Cube-A Window to Convex and Discrete Geometry by Chuanming Zong

By Chuanming Zong

8 themes concerning the unit cubes are brought inside of this textbook: pass sections, projections, inscribed simplices, triangulations, 0/1 polytopes, Minkowski's conjecture, Furtwangler's conjecture, and Keller's conjecture. specifically Chuanming Zong demonstrates how deep research like log concave degree and the Brascamp-Lieb inequality can take care of the pass part challenge, how Hyperbolic Geometry is helping with the triangulation challenge, how workforce jewelry can take care of Minkowski's conjecture and Furtwangler's conjecture, and the way Graph thought handles Keller's conjecture.
