**Applications of Unitary Symmetry And Combinatorics**

A concise description of the prestige of a desirable clinical challenge - the inverse variational challenge in classical mechanics. The essence of this challenge is as follows: one is given a collection of equations of movement describing a definite classical mechanical process, and the query to be replied is: do those equations of movement correspond to a few Lagrange functionality as its Euler-Lagrange equations?

This quantity offers articles from 4 striking researchers who paintings on the cusp of study and good judgment. The emphasis is on lively examine issues; many effects are awarded that experience now not been released prior to and open difficulties are formulated. huge attempt has been made through the authors to make their articles available to mathematicians new to the world

**Optimal interconnection trees in the plane : theory, algorithms and applications**

This publication explores basic features of geometric community optimisation with functions to various genuine global difficulties. It provides, for the 1st time within the literature, a cohesive mathematical framework in which the homes of such optimum interconnection networks could be understood throughout a variety of metrics and value services.

Hence, since both x~:x~; ... x~~ and x~; ... x~~x~! are freely reduced, they are both cyclically reduced. -£) is a cyclic permutation of a(W z). CASE 4. , V =1= VI or € =1= -€1' but" = "r and € = €r. -£) is a cycI~c permutation of a(W z). This shows that a(TWzT-l) is a cyclic permutation of a(W z) when T has length one. Assume now as the inductive hypothesis that a(KW zK-l) is a cyclic permutation of a(W z). -E) is a cyclic permutation of a(W z). 3. SEC. 3 give a constructive solution to the word and transformation problem for a free group only when the free group is presented on free generators.

Thus, for example, to compute P(XIX2-IXaX3-1XzX2-1), we compute P(XIX2-IX3Xa-IX2X2-1) = X 1X 2- 1 • In general, p is defined inductively as follows: p(l) = 1, (€ = ±1; 11 = 1,2, ... ,n) and if p(U) = xZ~ ... xZ~ ('YJ;=±I; p;=1,2, ... 4 SEC. 35 ELEMENTARY PROPERTIES OF FREE GROUPS then oF v or if flq if flQ = rJq v and oF -E rJQ = -E· We first establish some properties of p from which the theorem follows easily. (a) p{ W) is freely reduced. (b) p(W) "':! W. (c) If V is freely reduced, then p(V) = V.
