A Mathematical Gift I: The Interplay Between Topology, by Kenji Ueno, Koji Shiga, Shigeyuki Morita

By Kenji Ueno, Koji Shiga, Shigeyuki Morita

This publication will convey the wonder and enjoyable of arithmetic to the study room. It deals severe arithmetic in a full of life, reader-friendly variety. incorporated are routines and plenty of figures illustrating the most recommendations.
The first bankruptcy provides the geometry and topology of surfaces. between different themes, the authors talk about the Poincaré-Hopf theorem on serious issues of vector fields on surfaces and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem at the relation among curvature and topology (the Euler characteristic). the second one bankruptcy addresses a number of points of the concept that of measurement, together with the Peano curve and the Poincaré procedure. additionally addressed is the constitution of three-d manifolds. particularly, it truly is proved that the 3-dimensional sphere is the union of 2 doughnuts.
This is the 1st of 3 volumes originating from a sequence of lectures given via the authors at Kyoto collage (Japan).

Papers on Topology: Analysis Situs and Its Five Supplements (History of Mathematics)

Comprises complete bookmarked desk of contents and numbered pages. this can be an development of a duplicate to be had during the Library Genesis undertaking. the actual Stillwell translation is dated July 31, 2009.

John Stillwell used to be the recipient of the Chauvenet Prize for Mathematical Exposition in 2005. The papers during this publication chronicle Henri Poincaré's trip in algebraic topology among 1892 and 1904, from his discovery of the basic team to his formula of the Poincaré conjecture. For the 1st time in English translation, you'll stick to each step (and occasional stumble) alongside the best way, with assistance from translator John Stillwell's advent and editorial reviews. Now that the Poincaré conjecture has ultimately been proved, by way of Grigory Perelman, it sort of feels well timed to gather the papers that shape the heritage to this well-known conjecture. Poincaré's papers are in reality the 1st draft of algebraic topology, introducing its major subject material (manifolds) and uncomplicated recommendations (homotopy and homology). All mathematicians attracted to topology and its background will get pleasure from this e-book. This quantity is considered one of an off-the-cuff series of works in the historical past of arithmetic sequence. Volumes during this subset, "Sources", are classical mathematical works that served as cornerstones for contemporary mathematical proposal.

Tel Aviv topology conference: Rothenberg Festschrif, 1998

This quantity offers the lawsuits of the Tel Aviv foreign Topology convention held in the course of the distinctive Topology application at Tel Aviv collage. The ebook is devoted to Professor Mel Rothenberg at the party 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 features of torsion conception.


Jetzt in der achten Auflage, behandelt dieses bewährte Lehrbuch die Aspekte der mengentheoretischen Topologie, die jeder Mathematikstudent in mittleren Semestern kennen sollte. "Das erklärte Ziel des Autors warfare es, von der mengentheoretischen Topologie in leicht faßlicher und anregender shape 'gerade so viel zu bringen, wie ein Mathematikstudent beherrschen sollte.

The holomorphic atlas is one such. In fact, the determinant Jacobian with respect to the change of coordinates (x1 , y1 , . . , xn , yn ) −→ (x1 , y1 , . . , xn , yn ) is positive being the square of the absolute value of the determinant Jacobian of the holomorphic change of coordinates (z1 , . . , zn ) −→ (z1 , .
