From the studies of the first variation: "This ebook presents a finished and certain account of other themes in algorithmic three-d topology, culminating with the popularity method for Haken manifolds and together with the updated leads to machine enumeration of 3-manifolds. Originating from lecture notes of varied classes given through the writer over a decade, the booklet is meant to mix the pedagogical process of a graduate textbook (without workouts) with the completeness and reliability of a examine monograph… the entire fabric, with few exceptions, is gifted from the atypical perspective of exact polyhedra and specific spines of 3-manifolds. This selection contributes to maintain the extent of the exposition rather basic. In end, the reviewer subscribes to the citation from the again disguise: "the e-book fills a niche within the present literature and should develop into a typical reference for algorithmic three-dimensional topology either for graduate scholars and researchers". Zentralblatt f?r Mathematik 2004 For this second variation, new effects, new proofs, and commentaries for a greater orientation of the reader were additional. particularly, in bankruptcy 7 a number of new sections pertaining to functions of the pc software "3-Manifold Recognizer" were integrated.

**An Introduction to Noncommutative Geometry **

Noncommutative geometry, encouraged through quantum physics, describes singular areas through their noncommutative coordinate algebras and metric constructions by way of Dirac-like operators. Such metric geometries are defined mathematically by means of Connes' thought of spectral triples. those lectures, added at an EMS summer season tuition on noncommutative geometry and its purposes, offer an outline of spectral triples in line with examples.

**Geometry, Topology and Quantization**

This can be a monograph on geometrical and topological good points which come up in quite a few quantization approaches. Quantization schemes reflect on the feasibility of arriving at a quantum procedure from a classical one and those contain 3 significant strategies viz. i) geometric quantization, ii) Klauder quantization, and iii) stochastic quanti zation.

**Complex Spaces in Finsler, Lagrange and Hamilton Geometries**

From a ancient standpoint, the speculation we undergo the current examine has its origins within the recognized dissertation of P. Finsler from 1918 ([Fi]). In a the classical suggestion additionally traditional category, Finsler geometry has in addition to a few generalizations, which use an identical paintings method and that are thought of self-geometries: Lagrange and Hamilton areas.

**Introductory Differential Geometry For Physicists**

This e-book develops the math of differential geometry in a much more intelligible to physicists and different scientists attracted to this box. This ebook is largely divided into three degrees; point zero, the closest to instinct and geometrical adventure, is a brief precis of the speculation of curves and surfaces; point 1 repeats, reviews and develops upon the conventional equipment of tensor algebra research and point 2 is an creation to the language of recent differential geometry.

X ∼ Y if π1 (X) = π1 (Y ). This relation is fairy rough. For example, taking the one-point union with S 2 preserves the fundamental group but increases the Euler characteristic by 1. 22) is essentially an addition of S 2 . (II) The same fundamental group and Euler characteristic. X ∼ Y if π1 (X) = π1 (Y ) and χ(X) = χ(Y ). (III) Homotopy equivalence. Recall that two topological spaces X and Y are homotopy equivalent if there exist maps f : X → Y and g: Y → X such 32 1 Simple and Special Polyhedra that the maps f g : X → X and gf : Y → Y are homotopic to the identity.

34 1 Simple and Special Polyhedra (V) 3-Deformation equivalence. This relation is obtained by restricting the dimension of simple homotopy equivalence. 3. Two polyhedra X, Y of dimension ≤ 2 are 3-deformation 3d equivalent (we write 3d-equivalent or X 2 ∼ Y 2 ), if there is a sequence of elementary moves of dimension no greater than 3 taking X–Y . Clearly, two 2-dimensional polyhedra X, Y which are 3-deformation equivalent are simple homotopy equivalent, and there is a 3-dimensional polyhedron Z such that Z X and Z Y .

13, all of them give equivalent blow-ups. (2) One may choose another simple spine P1 of H 3 . 27, there is a sequence of moves T ±1 , L±1 transforming P1 into P . The same sequence can be used to relate the corresponding blow-ups. Attached cells do not prevent us from making the moves. 13 for shifting the curve away. (3) Suppose that H 3 is orientable. 17 that any two homotopy equivalences ϕ, ϕ : |K (1) | → H 3 diﬀer by a homeomorphism H 3 → H 3 . This means that the corresponding blow-ups are equivalent.
