Braids and Coverings: Selected Topics by Vagn Lundsgaard Hansen

By Vagn Lundsgaard Hansen

This publication relies on a graduate path taught by means of the writer on the collage of Maryland. The lecture notes were revised and augmented by way of examples. the 1st chapters increase the straightforward conception of Artin Braid teams, either geometrically and through homotopy concept, and speak about the hyperlink among knot concept and the combinatorics of braid teams via Markou's Theorem. the ultimate chapters supply an in depth research of polynomial masking maps, that may be considered as a homomorphism of the basic workforce of the bottom area into the Artin Braid team on n strings.

Directed Algebraic Topology: Models of non-reversible worlds by Marco Grandis

By Marco Grandis

This is often the 1st authored e-book to be devoted to the hot box of directed algebraic topology that arose within the Nineties, in homotopy idea and within the conception of concurrent strategies. Its basic goal should be said as 'modelling non-reversible phenomena' and its area could be amazing from that of classical algebraic topology via the primary that directed areas have privileged instructions and directed paths therein don't need to be reversible. Its homotopical instruments (corresponding within the classical case to dull homotopies, basic staff and primary groupoid) might be equally 'non-reversible': directed homotopies, primary monoid and basic class. Homotopy buildings happen the following in a directed model, which supplies upward thrust to new 'shapes', like directed cones and directed spheres. purposes will care for domain names the place privileged instructions seem, together with rewrite structures, site visitors networks and organic platforms. the main constructed examples are available within the zone of concurrency.

Topology by James Dugundji

By James Dugundji

Thank you anon for the djvu add, I simply switched over and did ocr with tesseract. I didn't like Munkres type (too verbose imo) this one is way better.

-- Reviews

when i used to be a scholar, this and Munkres have been the topology books opposed to which each and every different booklet used to be measured.

And whereas Munkres used to be of a extra introductory taste, this was once the true deal.


There are just a couple of vintage encyclopaedic texts on undergraduate topology, and Dugundji's is certainly one of them. And between such books, this is often my favorite as the others are too out of date or too voluminous. Dugundji's e-book is brief, smooth, and impeccable. It covers each subject an undergraduate may still understand or even extra. it truly is nonetheless priceless for me after years of use. It exposes all vital strategies of set topology and provides a quick yet centred advent to algebraic topology.
You won't remorse to learn it.


One of the easiest Topology books i've got learn. although the booklet has no figures (as one may count on from a topology book), nearly each element is roofed and there aren't imprecise elements within the proofs. for instance, the e-book by way of Willard is usually strong, yet in a few elements there are extra complicated information left for the reader. I took a easy topology graduate point direction at the first half 2007, which consisted on fixing the issues during this publication. We have been capable of finding a few difficulties that requested to turn out whatever fake, yet they have been 3 or 4 between all of the difficulties from sections III to VIII. besides, this e-book is a vintage so you might personal for those who plan to paintings in topology or not less than learn it whereas learning the topic. It's only a disgrace that the e-book is out of print.

Index Theory and Operator Algebras: Proceedings of a Cbms by Jeffrey Fox, Peter Haskell

By Jeffrey Fox, Peter Haskell

This number of papers through major researchers offers a extensive photo of present study instructions in index conception. in keeping with lectures provided on the NSF-CBMS nearby convention on $K$-Homology and Index idea, held in August 1991 on the college of Colorado at Boulder, the ebook presents either a cautious exposition of latest views in classical index concept and an advent to at present energetic components of the sphere. offered listed below are new proofs of the classical Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem, in addition to index theorems for manifolds with boundary and open manifolds. Index conception for semi-simple $p$-adic teams and the geometry of discrete teams also are mentioned. in the course of the e-book, the appliance of operator algebras emerges as a crucial topic. geared toward graduate scholars and researchers, this e-book is acceptable as a textual content for a complicated graduate direction on index concept

Simplicial objects in algebraic topology by Peter May

By Peter May

Because it was once first released in 1967, Simplicial items in Algebraic Topology has been the normal reference for the speculation of simplicial units and their dating to the homotopy idea of topological areas. J. Peter may well offers a lucid account of the fundamental homotopy concept of simplicial units (discrete analogs of topological areas) that have performed a imperative position in algebraic topology ever considering that their advent within the past due Forties.

Knot thery by Manturov V.

By Manturov V.

Considering that discovery of the Jones polynomial, knot conception has loved a digital explosion of significant effects and now performs an important function in sleek arithmetic. In a different presentation with contents no longer present in the other monograph, Knot concept describes, with complete proofs, the most ideas and the newest investigations within the field.The e-book is split into six thematic sections. the 1st half discusses "pre-Vassiliev" knot concept, from knot arithmetics in the course of the Jones polynomial and the recognized Kauffman-Murasugi theorem. the second one half explores braid concept, together with braids in numerous areas and easy note acceptance algorithms. a bit dedicated to the Vassiliev knot invariants follows, in which the writer proves that Vassiliev invariants are better than all polynomial invariants and introduces Bar-Natan's thought on Lie algebra respresentations and knots.The fourth half describes a brand new approach, proposed by way of the writer, to encode knots by way of d-diagrams. this technique permits the encoding of topological items via phrases in a finite alphabet. half 5 delves into digital knot concept and virtualizations of knot and hyperlink invariants. This part contains the author's personal vital effects relating to new invariants of digital knots. The publication concludes with an advent to knots in 3-manifolds and Legendrian knots and hyperlinks, together with Chekanov's differential graded algebra (DGA) building. Knot idea is striking not just for its professional presentation of knot theory's cutting-edge but in addition for its accessibility. it really is invaluable as a certified reference and should serve both good as a textual content for a direction on knot concept.

Stability of Nonautonomous Differential Equations by Luis Barreira

By Luis Barreira

Main subject matter of this quantity is the soundness of nonautonomous differential equations, with emphasis at the Lyapunov balance of recommendations, the life and smoothness of invariant manifolds, the development and regularity of topological conjugacies, the learn of heart manifolds, in addition to their reversibility and equivariance houses. so much effects are bought within the infinite-dimensional surroundings of Banach areas. moreover, the linear variational equations are consistently assumed to own a nonuniform exponential habit, given both by means of the lifestyles of a nonuniform exponential contraction or a nonuniform exponential dichotomy. The presentation is self-contained and has unified personality. the quantity contributes in the direction of a rigorous mathematical beginning of the idea within the infinite-dimension atmosphere, and will result in additional advancements within the box. The exposition is directed to researchers in addition to graduate scholars attracted to differential equations and dynamical platforms, really in balance theory.
