Adams Memorial Symposium on Algebraic Topology: Volume 1 by Nigel Ray, Grant Walker

By Nigel Ray, Grant Walker

J. Frank Adams had a profound impact on algebraic topology, and his works proceed to form its improvement. The foreign Symposium on Algebraic Topology held in Manchester in the course of July 1990 was once devoted to his reminiscence, and almost all the world's prime specialists took half. This two-volume paintings constitutes the court cases of the symposium. The articles contained right here variety from overviews to experiences of labor nonetheless in development, in addition to a survey and entire bibliography of Adams' personal paintings. those court cases shape a big compendium of present learn in algebraic topology, and person who demonstrates the intensity of Adams' many contributions to the topic. the following within the first quantity the subject matter is especially volatile homotopy conception, homological and express algebra. the second one quantity is orientated towards reliable homotopy thought, the Steenrod algebra and the Adams spectral series.

This quantity offers the lawsuits of the Tel Aviv overseas Topology convention held throughout the specific Topology application at Tel Aviv college. The booklet is devoted to Professor Mel Rothenberg at the get together of his sixty fifth birthday. His contributions to topology are good known---from the early paintings on triangulations to various papers on transformation teams and on geometric and analytic facets of torsion thought.

Topology, 2/E

For a senior undergraduate or first 12 months graduate-level path in creation to Topology. acceptable for a one-semester path on either normal and algebraic topology or separate classes treating every one subject separately.
This textual content is designed to supply teachers with a handy unmarried textual content source for bridging among basic and algebraic topology classes. separate, unique sections (one on basic, aspect set topology, the opposite on algebraic topology) are every one compatible for a one-semester direction and are dependent round the related set of uncomplicated, middle issues. non-compulsory, autonomous issues and purposes should be studied and built extensive looking on path wishes and preferences.

Surface Topology

This up-to-date and revised version of a generally acclaimed and winning textual content for undergraduates examines topology of contemporary compact surfaces during the improvement of straightforward principles in aircraft geometry. Containing over 171 diagrams, the strategy enables a simple remedy of its topic sector. it really is quite appealing for its wealth of functions and diversity of interactions with branches of arithmetic, associated with floor topology, graph conception, team conception, vector box thought, and airplane Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry.

Geometry of polynomials

Throughout the years because the first version of this recognized monograph seemed, the topic (the geometry of the zeros of a posh polynomial) has endured to show a similar amazing power because it did within the first one hundred fifty years of its background, starting with the contributions of Cauchy and Gauss.
