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

By Kenji Ueno, Koji Shiga, Shigeyuki Morita

This ebook will convey the wonder and enjoyable of arithmetic to the school room. It deals severe arithmetic in a full of life, reader-friendly type. integrated are workouts and lots of figures illustrating the most ideas.
The first bankruptcy offers the geometry and topology of surfaces. between different themes, the authors speak 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 technique. additionally addressed is the constitution of 3-dimensional manifolds. specifically, it's proved that the three-d sphere is the union of 2 doughnuts.
This is the 1st of 3 volumes originating from a chain of lectures given via the authors at Kyoto college (Japan).

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

Contains complete bookmarked desk of contents and numbered pages. this is often an development of a replica on hand throughout the Library Genesis venture. the actual Stillwell translation is dated July 31, 2009.

John Stillwell was once the recipient of the Chauvenet Prize for Mathematical Exposition in 2005. The papers during this booklet 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 could keep on with each step (and occasional stumble) alongside the way in which, with assistance from translator John Stillwell's advent and editorial reviews. Now that the Poincaré conjecture has ultimately been proved, by means of Grigory Perelman, it sort of feels well timed to gather the papers that shape the heritage to this recognized conjecture. Poincaré's papers are in reality the 1st draft of algebraic topology, introducing its major subject material (manifolds) and easy ideas (homotopy and homology). All mathematicians attracted to topology and its historical past will get pleasure from this booklet. This quantity is one among 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 notion.

Tel Aviv topology conference: Rothenberg Festschrif, 1998

This quantity provides the lawsuits of the Tel Aviv foreign Topology convention held throughout the certain Topology application at Tel Aviv collage. The booklet 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 varied papers on transformation teams and on geometric and analytic points of torsion concept.


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 battle es, von der mengentheoretischen Topologie in leicht faßlicher und anregender shape 'gerade so viel zu bringen, wie ein Mathematikstudent beherrschen sollte.

The orthogonal transformations of 4-space that E. Jahnke had found in Caspary 1883, and reconsidered, look in quaternion form as x-^ax. Jahnke mistook them for rotations. Since conjugation interchanges left and right multiplications, every rotation of 4-space can be obtained as a product of two transformations of this kind (instead of a left and a right multiplication). This is the theorem Jahnke claimed against Brouwer on the strength of Jahnke, 1896, 1897, 1902, though in fact it is at least Caspary's result, if it is not older.

Is thus, entirely filled with these representing lines which are in (1,1 ^correspondence with the represented systems of planes. We shall call that Sz i. 0 W regarded as a complex of the rays representing the equiangular to the right systems of planes, "the representing Sz to the right of S4" or shorter "the Sr ofSA". In the same way we form the "Si of S4". Each pair of planes in S4 is then unequivocally determined by its represen-tants in Sr and St and reversely the pair of planes determines unequivocally its représentants.
