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

Comprises complete bookmarked desk of contents and numbered pages. this is often an development of a duplicate to be had during the Library Genesis undertaking. 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 e-book 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, one could persist with each step (and occasional stumble) alongside the best way, 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 kind of feels well timed to gather the papers that shape the heritage to this well-known conjecture. Poincaré's papers are actually the 1st draft of algebraic topology, introducing its major subject material (manifolds) and simple recommendations (homotopy and homology). All mathematicians drawn to topology and its background will take pleasure in this ebook. This quantity is one among a casual 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 concept.

Tel Aviv topology conference: Rothenberg Festschrif, 1998

This quantity provides the court cases of the Tel Aviv foreign Topology convention held throughout the particular Topology application 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 facets of torsion idea.


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

TAUT FOLIATIONS AND FLAT MINIMAL SURFACES In this section we give the precise criteria to determine whether or not a candidate surface S is disc decomposable. There are two types of obstructions that must vanish for S to be a surface of minimal genus. First the projection, hence the candidate surface, associated to T may have simplifications analogous to the situation for pretzel links.
