An Invitation to Knot Theory: Virtual and Classical by Heather A. Dye

By Heather A. Dye

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


An Invitation to Knot idea: digital and Classical provides complicated undergraduate scholars a steady creation to the sector of digital knot thought and mathematical examine. It presents the basis for college students to investigate knot conception and skim magazine articles all alone. every one bankruptcy contains a number of examples, difficulties, tasks, and recommended 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, akin to the quandle and biquandle. The ebook concludes with functions of digital knots: textiles and quantum computation.

Emerging Applications of Algebraic Geometry: 149 (The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applications)

Fresh advances in either the speculation and implementation of computational algebraic geometry have ended in new, notable functions to numerous fields of analysis. The articles during this quantity spotlight a number of those functions and supply introductory fabric for subject matters coated within the IMA workshops on "Optimization and keep an eye on" and "Applications in Biology, Dynamics, and data" held throughout the IMA 12 months on functions of Algebraic Geometry.

Differential Characters (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

Offering a scientific advent to differential characters as brought through Cheeger and Simons, this article describes vital recommendations resembling fiber integration, greater dimensional holonomy, transgression, and the product constitution in a geometrical demeanour. Differential characters shape a version of what's these days referred to as differential cohomology, that's the mathematical constitution at the back of the better gauge theories in physics.
