By Gunnar E. Carlsson, Ralph L. Cohen, Wu-Chung Hsiang, John D.S. Jones

In 1989-90 the Mathematical Sciences learn Institute performed a application on Algebraic Topology and its functions. the most parts of focus have been homotopy conception, K-theory, and functions to geometric topology, gauge concept, and moduli areas. Workshops have been carried out in those 3 components. This quantity involves invited, expository articles at the themes studied in this software. They describe contemporary advances and element to attainable new instructions. they need to turn out to be worthwhile references for researchers in Algebraic Topology and comparable fields, in addition to to graduate scholars.

Modern Geometry: Introduction to Homology Theory Pt. 3: Methods and Applications

During the last fifteen years, the geometrical and topological equipment of the idea of manifolds have assumed a vital position within the such a lot complex parts of natural and utilized arithmetic in addition to theoretical physics. the 3 volumes of "Modern Geometry - tools and functions" include a concrete exposition of those equipment including their major purposes in arithmetic and physics.

Borel Liftings of Borel Sets: Some Decidable and Undecidable Statements

One of many goals of this paintings is to enquire a few normal homes of Borel units that are undecidable in $ZFC$. The authors' start line is the next trouble-free, although non-trivial outcome: contemplate $X \subset 2omega\times2omega$, set $Y=\pi(X)$, the place $\pi$ denotes the canonical projection of $2omega\times2omega$ onto the 1st issue, and consider that $(\star)$ : ""Any compact subset of $Y$ is the projection of a few compact subset of $X$"".
