Download Classical Aspherical Manifolds by F. Thomas Farrell and L. Edwin Jones PDF

By F. Thomas Farrell and L. Edwin Jones

Aspherical manifolds--those whose common covers are contractible--arise classically in lots of components of arithmetic. They ensue in Lie crew concept as yes double coset areas and in man made geometry because the house varieties keeping the geometry. This quantity includes lectures introduced via the 1st writer at an NSF-CBMS local convention on K-Theory and Dynamics, held in Gainesville, Florida in January, 1989. The lectures have been basically concerned about the matter of topologically characterizing classical aspherical manifolds. This challenge has for the main half been solved, however the three- and four-dimensional situations stay an important open questions; Poincare's conjecture is heavily regarding the three-d challenge. one of many major effects is closed aspherical manifold (of size $\neq$ three or four) is a hyperbolic area if and provided that its primary workforce is isomorphic to a discrete, cocompact subgroup of the Lie staff $O(n,1;{\mathbb R})$. one of many book's subject matters is how the dynamics of the geodesic circulation should be mixed with topological keep an eye on thought to check competently discontinuous team activities on $R^n$. the various extra technical themes of the lectures were deleted, and a few extra effects received because the convention are mentioned in an epilogue. The booklet calls for a few familiarity with the fabric contained in a uncomplicated, graduate-level path in algebraic and differential topology, in addition to a few basic differential geometry.

Download Enumerative Algebraic Geometry: Proceedings of the 1989 by Zeuthen Symposium, Steven L. Kleiman, H. G. Zeuthen, Anders PDF

By Zeuthen Symposium, Steven L. Kleiman, H. G. Zeuthen, Anders Thorup

1989 marked the a hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the delivery of the good Danish mathematician Hieronymus Georg Zeuthen. Zeuthen's identify is identified to each algebraic geometer due to his discovery of a easy invariant of surfaces. even if, he additionally did basic examine in intersection concept, enumerative geometry, and the projective geometry of curves and surfaces. Zeuthen's striking devotion to his topic, his attribute intensity, thoroughness, and readability of proposal, and his distinct and succinct writing variety are really inspiring.

During the previous ten years or so, algebraic geometers have reexamined Zeuthen's paintings, drawing from it suggestion and new instructions for improvement within the box. The 1989 Zeuthen Symposium, held in the summertime of 1989 on the Mathematical Institute of the collage of Copenhagen, supplied a old chance for mathematicians to assemble and view these parts in modern mathematical learn that have developed from Zeuthen's fruitful principles. This quantity, containing papers provided in the course of the symposium, in addition to others encouraged through it, illuminates a few presently energetic components of analysis in enumerative algebraic geometry

Download Random Fourier Series with Applications to Harmonic Analysis by Michael B. Marcus PDF

By Michael B. Marcus

In this booklet the authors provide the 1st worthwhile and adequate stipulations for the uniform convergence a.s. of random Fourier sequence on in the neighborhood compact Abelian teams and on compact non-Abelian teams. in addition they receive many comparable effects. for instance, at any time when a random Fourier sequence converges uniformly a.s. it additionally satisfies the vital restrict theorem. The equipment built are used to review a few questions in harmonic research that aren't intrinsically random. for instance, a brand new characterization of Sidon units is derived.

The significant effects count seriously at the Dudley-Fernique precious and adequate for the continuity of desk bound Gaussian approaches and on contemporary paintings on sums of self sufficient Banach house valued random variables. it truly is noteworthy that the proofs for the Abelian case instantly expand to the non-Abelian case as soon as the correct definition of random Fourier sequence is made. In doing this the authors receive new effects on sums of autonomous random matrices with parts in a Banach house. the ultimate bankruptcy of the publication indicates numerous instructions for extra research.

Download The Mathematical Heritage of Henri Poincare, Part 1 by Felix E. Browder PDF

By Felix E. Browder

On April 7-10, 1980, the yankee Mathematical Society subsidized a Symposium at the Mathematical historical past of Henri Poincari, held at Indiana college, Bloomington, Indiana. This quantity provides the written types of all yet 3 of the invited talks provided at this Symposium (those by means of W. Browder, A. Jaffe, and J. Mather weren't written up for publication).In addition, it comprises papers through invited audio system who weren't in a position to attend, S. S. Chern and L. Nirenberg. If one lines the impact of Poincari throughout the significant mathematical figures of the early and midtwentieth century, it really is via American mathematicians in addition to French that this impact flows, via G. D. Birkhoff, Solomon Lefschetz, and Marston Morse. This carrying on with culture represents one of many significant strands of yank in addition to global arithmetic, and it really is as an affidavit to this practice as a gap to the long run creativity of arithmetic that this quantity is devoted. This half includes sections on geometry, topology, Riemann surfaces, discontinuous teams and Lie teams, and several other complicated variables.

Download Vorlesungen ueber die Entwicklung der Mathematik im 19. by Felix Klein, Richard Courant, Otto Neugebauer, Stefan PDF

By Felix Klein, Richard Courant, Otto Neugebauer, Stefan Cohn-Vossen

Kaum jemals wird tin Werk eines Historikers einen so starken Reiz tiben und so tiefe Einblicke in das Wesen der Geschichte offnen wie Gedanken und Erinnerungen eines groBen Staatsmannes, welcher selbst ein langes Leben hindurch an fUhrender Stelle in die Geschicke der Welt eingegriffen hat und eine tiberlegene geistige in line with sonlichkeit mit der Kraft ktinstlerischer schriftstellerischer Gestaltung verbindet. Solchc Werke, schon fUr die politische Geschichte eine kostbare Seltenheit, sind fiir die Geschichte der exakten Wissenschaften bis her wohl kaum geschrieben worden. Urn so notwendiger erschien es, als Felix Klein vor Jahresfrist starb, mit der Herausgabe seiner Vor lesungen zur Geschichte der Mathematik und mathematischen Physik des 19. Jahrhunderts nicht zu zogern. Diese Vorlesungen sind die reife Frucht eines reichen Lebens in mitten der wissenschaftlichen Ereignisse, der Ausdruck tiberlegener Weisheit und tiefen historischen Sinnes, einer hohen menschlichen Kultur und einer meisterhaften Gestaltungskraft; sie werden sicherlich auf aIle Mathematiker und Physiker und weit tiber diesen Kreis hin aus eine groBe Wirkung austiben. In einer Zeit, wo der Blick der Menschen auch in der Wissenschaft allzusehr am Gegenwartigen hangt und das Einzelne in unnatiirlicher VergroBerung und iiber triebener Bedeutung gegentiber dem Ganzen zu betrachten pflegt, kann das Kleinsche Werk vielen die Augen wieder offnen fUr die Zusammenhange und Entwicklungslinien unserer Wissenschaft im GroBen.
