J. Frank Adams had a profound effect on algebraic topology, and his paintings maintains to form its improvement. The overseas Symposium on Algebraic Topology held in Manchester in the course of July 1990 used to be devoted to his reminiscence, and almost the entire world's best specialists took half. This quantity paintings constitutes the complaints of the symposium; the articles contained the following diversity from overviews to experiences of labor nonetheless in development, in addition to a survey and whole bibliography of Adam's personal paintings. those court cases shape an immense compendium of present examine in algebraic topology, and person who demonstrates the intensity of Adams' many contributions to the topic. This moment quantity is orientated in the direction of homotopy idea, the Steenrod algebra and the Adams spectral series. within the first quantity the subject is principally volatile homotopy thought, homological and express.

Minimal Submanifolds and Related Topics (Nankai Tracts in by Yuanlong Xin PDF

The Bernstein challenge and the Plateau challenge are vital subject matters within the concept of minimum submanifolds. this significant e-book provides the Douglas-Rado way to the Plateau challenge, however the major emphasis is at the Bernstein challenge and its new advancements in a variety of instructions: the worth distribution of the Gauss snapshot of a minimum floor in Euclidean 3-space, Simons' paintings for minimum photo hypersurfaces, and author's personal contributions to Bernstein sort theorems for greater codimension.

The current booklet is meant to be a scientific textual content on topological vector areas and presupposes familiarity with the weather of common topology and linear algebra. the writer has chanced on it pointless to rederive those effects, on account that they're both simple for lots of different components of arithmetic, and each starting graduate scholar is probably going to have made their acquaintance.

DETRUNCATING MORAVA K-THEORY John Robert Hunton* Dedicated to the memory of Frank Adams. §1 Introduction In [4] we considered the problem of computing the Morava K-theory of extended power constructions K(n)*(Dp(X)) for various spaces X.

Proof of Theorem 12. It suffices to prove the result for X connected. Up to a multiple by a power of v,,, an element x E K(n)2r(X) can be considered as a map X -) K(n)'2r. Theorem 11 allows x to be lifted to a map i:X --p E(n)',..
