Ideal for college students whose mastery of algebraic topology could be a work-in-progress, the textual content introduces key notions similar to primary teams, homology teams, and the Euler-Poincaré attribute. those must haves are the topic of exact appendices that permit centred, discrete studying the place it truly is required, with out interrupting the conscientiously deliberate constitution of the middle exposition. lightly guiding readers in the course of the rules, thought, and functions of the category theorem, the authors goal to foster real self belief in its use and in so doing inspire readers to maneuver directly to a deeper exploration of the flexible and important strategies on hand in algebraic topology.

A. D. Alexandrov's contribution to the sector of intrinsic geometry used to be unique and extremely influential. this article is a vintage that continues to be unsurpassed in its readability and scope. It offers his middle fabric, initially released in Russian in 1948, starting wth an overview of the most thoughts after which exploring different subject matters, corresponding to common propositions on an intrinsic metric; angles and curvature; lifestyles of a convex polyhedron with prescribed metric; curves on convex surfaces; and the position of particular curvature.
This Seminar begun in Moscow in November 1943 and has persevered with out interruption as much as the current. we're chuffed that with this vol ume, Birkhiiuser has began to put up papers of talks from the Seminar. It was once, regrettably, tough to arrange their ebook sooner than 1990. in view that 1990, many of the talks have taken position at Rutgers collage in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
The articles during this quantity are invited papers from the Marcus Wallenberg symposium and concentrate on examine topics that bridge the gap between analysis, geometry, and topology. The encounters among those 3 fields are common and sometimes offer impetus for significant breakthroughs in applications. Topics comprise new advancements in low dimensional topology on the topic of invariants of hyperlinks and 3 and 4 manifolds; Perelman's amazing facts of the Poincare conjecture; and the hot advances made in algebraic, advanced, symplectic, and tropical geometry.
The most goal of this publication is to explain and strengthen the conceptual, structural and summary taking into account arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual procedure; supplying a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive aspects. those principles are conscientiously inspired, defined and illustrated by way of examples in order that the various extra technical proofs may be passed over.
