Results and Problems in Combinatorial Geometry by Vladimir G. Boltjansky, Israel Gohberg, B. Bollobás, A.

By Vladimir G. Boltjansky, Israel Gohberg, B. Bollobás, A. Harris

During this brief publication, the authors talk about 3 forms of difficulties from combinatorial geometry: Borsuk's partition challenge, protecting convex our bodies through smaller homothetic our bodies, and the illumination challenge. They express how heavily similar those difficulties are to one another. The presentation is straight forward, with out greater than high-school arithmetic and an curiosity in geometry required to stick to the arguments. lots of the dialogue is particular to 2- and third-dimensional Euclidean house, notwithstanding occasionally extra common effects and difficulties are given. therefore even the mathematically unsophisticated reader can clutch a few of the result of a department of twentieth-century arithmetic that has purposes in such disciplines as mathematical programming, operations study and theoretical machine technology. on the finish of the booklet the authors have gathered jointly a collection of unsolved and in part solved difficulties sixth-form pupil could be capable of comprehend or even try and clear up.

Introduction to combinatorial torsions by Vladimir Turaev

By Vladimir Turaev

This publication is an creation to combinatorial torsions of mobile areas and manifolds with unique emphasis on torsions of third-dimensional manifolds. the 1st chapters hide algebraic foundations of the speculation of torsions and numerous topological structures of torsions because of okay. Reidemeister, J.H.C. Whitehead, J. Milnor and the writer. We additionally talk about connections among the torsions and the Alexander polynomials of hyperlinks and 3-manifolds. The 3rd (and final) bankruptcy of the publication bargains with so-called sophisticated torsions and the similar extra buildings on manifolds, particularly homological orientations and Euler buildings. As an program, we supply a building of the multivariable Conway polynomial of hyperlinks in homology 3-spheres. on the finish of the publication, we in brief describe the new result of G. Meng, C.H. Taubes and the writer at the connections among the sophisticated torsions and the Seiberg-Witten invariant of 3-manifolds. The exposition is aimed toward scholars, expert mathematicians and physicists drawn to combinatorial facets of topology and/or in low dimensional topology. the required heritage for the reader comprises the trouble-free fundamentals of topology and homological algebra.

Lectures in Geometric Combinatorics (Student Mathematical by Rekha R. Thomas

By Rekha R. Thomas

This e-book provides a path within the geometry of convex polytopes in arbitrary measurement, compatible for a sophisticated undergraduate or starting graduate scholar. The booklet begins with the fundamentals of polytope conception. Schlegel and Gale diagrams are brought as geometric instruments to imagine polytopes in excessive size and to unearth strange phenomena in polytopes. the guts of the e-book is a therapy of the secondary polytope of some extent configuration and its connections to the nation polytope of the toric perfect outlined through the configuration. those polytopes are fairly fresh constructs with quite a few connections to discrete geometry, classical algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, and combinatorics. The connections depend upon Gröbner bases of toric beliefs and different equipment from commutative algebra. The ebook is self-contained and doesn't require any historical past past easy linear algebra. With quite a few figures and workouts, it may be used as a textbook for classes on geometric, combinatorial, and computational points of the speculation of polytopes.
