Algebraic Topology: A First Course (Graduate Texts in by William Fulton

By William Fulton

This e-book introduces the $64000 rules of algebraic topology via emphasizing the relation of those rules with different components of arithmetic. instead of settling on one perspective of contemporary topology (homotropy thought, axiomatic homology, or differential topology, say) the writer concentrates on concrete difficulties in areas with a number of dimensions, introducing simply as a lot algebraic equipment as valuable for the issues encountered. This makes it attainable to work out a greater diversity of vital good points within the topic than is usual in introductory texts; it's also in concord with the ancient improvement of the topic. The ebook is geared toward scholars who don't unavoidably intend on focusing on algebraic topology.

Global surgery formula for the Casson-Walker invariant

This e-book offers a brand new bring about three-dimensional topology. it really is popular that any closed orientated 3-manifold could be received through surgical procedure on a framed hyperlink in S three. In worldwide surgical procedure formulation for the Casson-Walker Invariant, a functionality F of framed hyperlinks in S three is defined, and it truly is confirmed that F continually defines an invariant, lamda ( l ), of closed orientated 3-manifolds.

Felix Hausdorff - Gesammelte Werke Band III: Mengenlehre (1927,1935) Deskripte Mengenlehre und Topologie (German and English Edition) (v. 3)

Band III der Hausdorff-Edition enthält Hausdorffs Band „Mengenlehre", seine veröffentlichten Arbeiten zur deskriptiven Mengenlehre und Topologie sowie zahlreiche einschlägige Studien aus dem Nachlaß. Sein Buch „Mengenlehre" erlangte besonders dadurch historische Bedeutung, als darin erstmals eine monographische Darstellung des damals aktuellen Standes der deskriptiven Mengenlehre gegeben wurde.

2-knots and their groups

To assault sure difficulties in four-dimensional knot concept the writer attracts on quite a few recommendations, concentrating on knots in S^T4, whose primary teams include abelian basic subgroups. Their category comprises the main geometrically attractive and top understood examples. in addition, it really is attainable to use fresh paintings in algebraic the right way to those difficulties.

Fractals and Chaos: The Mandelbrot Set and Beyond

"It is barely twenty-three years given that Benoit Mandelbrot released his recognized photo of what's now known as the Mandelbrot Set. The images have been state-of-the-art, notwithstanding now they could appear primitive. yet how that photograph has replaced our perspectives of the mathematical and actual universe! Fractals, a time period coined by means of Mandelbrot, at the moment are so ubiquitous within the clinical moral sense that it truly is tricky to recollect the mental surprise in their arrival.
