By C. Allday, V. Puppe (auth.), Stefan Jackowski, Bob Oliver, Krzystof Pawałowski (eds.)

As a part of the clinical job in reference to the seventieth birthday of the Adam Mickiewicz collage in Poznan, a world convention on algebraic topology used to be held. within the ensuing lawsuits quantity, the emphasis is on large survey papers, a few awarded on the convention, a few written subsequently.

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

Contains complete bookmarked desk of contents and numbered pages. this can be an development of a replica on hand throughout the Library Genesis venture. 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 ebook chronicle Henri Poincaré's trip in algebraic topology among 1892 and 1904, from his discovery of the elemental team to his formula of the Poincaré conjecture. For the 1st time in English translation, you may stick with each step (and occasional stumble) alongside the way in which, with the aid of translator John Stillwell's advent and editorial reviews. Now that the Poincaré conjecture has eventually been proved, via Grigory Perelman, it sort of feels well timed to gather the papers that shape the history to this recognized conjecture. Poincaré's papers are in truth the 1st draft of algebraic topology, introducing its major material (manifolds) and uncomplicated suggestions (homotopy and homology). All mathematicians drawn to topology and its historical past will take pleasure in this booklet. This quantity is one in every of a casual series of works in the heritage of arithmetic sequence. Volumes during this subset, "Sources", are classical mathematical works that served as cornerstones for contemporary mathematical idea.

Tel Aviv topology conference: Rothenberg Festschrif, 1998

This quantity provides the lawsuits of the Tel Aviv overseas Topology convention held through the unique Topology software at Tel Aviv college. The publication 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 thought.


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.

197. The controlled equivariant boundary theorem is closely related to:the equivariant product structure theorem. Namely, let a G-manifold M be provided with a locally smooth PL structure ~0 consider locally smooth PL structures ~ near aM . We on M x R which agree with ~0 x R near aM x R (so-called structures rel 8). We say that a structure 5] on M x R tel a admits a product structure if 5] is G-isotopic rel a to a structure of the form e x R , where e is a locally smooth PL structure on M which agrees with ~'0 near a M .

Suppose F is a simply connected r-dimensional integral homology rsphere. Then there exists a finite G-complex X homotopy equivalent to Sr÷dn. Moreover G acts semifreely on X with X G = F. g. [9], [59] ~2). It turns out that - at least under some restrictions - the equivariant finiteness obstruction is closely connected with the problem of existence of regular neighbourhoods. This observation was made by F. Quinn [44] prop. 2 and cot. 3 and K. H. Dovermann [16]. For instance, if a finite group G acts locally smoothly and semifrecly on a compact manifold neighbourhood in M M then the fixed point set M G has an equivariant closed regular iff all equivariant finiteness obstructions wH(M)'s vanish.
