By Heather A. Dye

The purely Undergraduate Textbook to educate either Classical and digital Knot Theory


An Invitation to Knot concept: digital and Classical offers complicated undergraduate scholars a gradual creation to the sector of digital knot concept and mathematical examine. It presents the basis for college kids to investigate knot thought and skim magazine articles on their lonesome. each one bankruptcy comprises a variety of examples, difficulties, initiatives, and instructed readings from learn papers. The proofs are written as easily as attainable utilizing combinatorial techniques, equivalence sessions, and linear algebra.



The textual content starts with an advent to digital knots and counted invariants. It then covers the normalized f-polynomial (Jones polynomial) and different skein invariants earlier than discussing algebraic invariants, reminiscent of the quandle and biquandle. The e-book concludes with functions of digital knots: textiles and quantum computation.

Compactification of Symmetric Spaces (Progress in Mathematics)

The concept that of symmetric area is of primary significance in lots of branches of arithmetic. Compactifications of those areas were studied from the issues of view of illustration concept, geometry, and random walks. This paintings is dedicated to the research of the interrelationships between those quite a few compactifications and, particularly, makes a speciality of the martin compactifications.
