J. Frank Adams had a profound impact on algebraic topology, and his works proceed to form its improvement. The foreign Symposium on Algebraic Topology held in Manchester in the course of July 1990 used to be devoted to his reminiscence, and nearly the entire world's top specialists took half. This two-volume paintings constitutes the court cases of the symposium. The articles contained right here diversity from overviews to experiences of labor nonetheless in development, in addition to a survey and entire bibliography of Adams' personal paintings. those complaints shape a big compendium of present study in algebraic topology, and person who demonstrates the intensity of Adams' many contributions to the topic. right here within the first quantity the subject matter is especially volatile homotopy thought, homological and express algebra. the second one quantity is orientated towards strong homotopy idea, the Steenrod algebra and the Adams spectral series.

New PDF release: Minimal Submanifolds and Related Topics (Nankai Tracts in

The Bernstein challenge and the Plateau challenge are significant issues within the idea of minimum submanifolds. this crucial ebook offers the Douglas-Rado technique to the Plateau challenge, however the major emphasis is at the Bernstein challenge and its new advancements in numerous instructions: the worth distribution of the Gauss picture of a minimum floor in Euclidean 3-space, Simons' paintings for minimum photograph hypersurfaces, and author's personal contributions to Bernstein style theorems for greater codimension.

H.H. Schaefer's Topological Vector Spaces PDF

The current e-book is meant to be a scientific textual content on topological vector areas and presupposes familiarity with the weather of basic topology and linear algebra. the writer has came across it pointless to rederive those effects, for the reason that they're both easy for plenty of different components of arithmetic, and each starting graduate pupil is probably going to have made their acquaintance.

According to the overall goal of the "D. M. V. -Seminar" sequence, this booklet is princi­ pally a document on a gaggle of lectures held at Blaubeuren through Professors H. J. Baues, S. Halperin and J. -M. Lemaire, from October 30 to November 7, 1988. those lec­ tures have been dedicated to offering an advent to the speculation of versions in algebraic homotopy.

Let a : R(G) -> K(BG) be the natural map. With X = BG, Im(a) C FF(BG). Adams proves that equality holds if G is finite or if iro(G) is the union of its Sylow subgroups. In these cases, f* : K(BG') -. K(BG) carries R(G') into R(G) for any map f : BG -+ BG', but this is not true in general. However, for any G there is an n > 0 such that nFF(BG) C Im(a). If G is monogenic and x E FF(BG), then x = a(p) for an honest representation p of G, but there is a finite p-group G and an element x E FF(BG) such that x is not of the form a(p) for any representation p.
