By Liang-shin Hahn

The aim of this publication is to illustrate that advanced numbers and geometry could be mixed jointly fantastically. This leads to effortless proofs and common generalizations of many theorems in aircraft geometry, equivalent to the Napoleon theorem, the Ptolemy-Euler theorem, the Simson theorem, and the Morley theorem. The booklet is self-contained - no history in complicated numbers is believed - and will be coated at a leisurely velocity in a one-semester path. some of the chapters could be learn independently. Over a hundred workouts are integrated. The ebook will be compatible as a textual content for a geometry path, or for an issue fixing seminar, or as enrichment for the coed who desires to recognize extra.

Fundamental Groups and Covering Spaces

The uncomplicated personality of primary teams and masking areas are offered as compatible for introducing algebraic topology. the 2 subject matters are handled in separate sections. the focal point is at the use of algebraic invariants in topological difficulties. functions to different components of arithmetic comparable to genuine research, complicated variables, and differential geometry also are mentioned.

Nonabelian Algebraic Topology: Filtered Spaces, Crossed Complexes, Cubical Homotopy Groupoids

The most subject matter of this ebook is that using filtered areas instead of simply topological areas permits the improvement of simple algebraic topology when it comes to greater homotopy groupoids; those algebraic buildings higher mirror the geometry of subdivision and composition than these generally in use.

Conference on Algebraic Topology in Honor of Peter Hilton

This publication, that's the court cases of a convention held at Memorial collage of Newfoundland, August 1983, includes 18 papers in algebraic topology and homological algebra by means of collaborators and co-workers of Peter Hilton. it's devoted to Hilton at the party of his sixtieth birthday. some of the subject matters lined are homotopy thought, $H$-spaces, crew cohomology, localization, classifying areas, and Eckmann-Hilton duality.

If Q is any cube, the surface area and volume of Q are related by vol(∂Q) = 2n vol(Q)(n−1)/n . ˜ for which We wish to show that any other convex body K has an affine image K ˜ ≤ 2n vol(K) ˜ (n−1)/n . vol(∂ K) ˜ so that its maximal volume ellipsoid is B2n , the Euclidean ball of Choose K ˜ is then at most 2n , since this is the volume of the radius 1. The volume of K cube whose maximal ellipsoid is B2n . As in the previous lecture, n ˜ ˜ ˜ = lim vol(K + εB2 ) − vol(K) . vol(∂ K) ε→0 ε ˜ ⊃ B n , the second expression is at most Since K 2 n ˜ + εK) ˜ − vol(K) ˜ vol(K ˜ lim (1 + ε) − 1 = vol(K) ε→0 ε→0 ε ε ˜ (n−1)/n ˜ ˜ 1/n vol(K) = n vol(K) = n vol(K) ˜ (n−1)/n , ≤ 2n vol(K) lim which is exactly what we wanted.

Let C be the maximum possible ratio x /|x| for nonzero x and let θ be a point of S k−1 with θ = C. Choose ψ in the δ-net with |θ − ψ| ≤ δ. Then θ − ψ ≤ C|θ − ψ| ≤ Cδ, so C = θ ≤ ψ + θ − ψ ≤ (1 + γ) + Cδ. Hence (1 + γ) . 1−δ To get the lower bound, pick some θ in the sphere and some ψ in the δ-net with |ψ − θ| ≤ δ. Then C≤ (1 − γ) ≤ ψ ≤ θ + ψ − θ ≤ θ + (1 + γ)δ (1 + γ) |ψ − θ| ≤ θ + . 1−δ 1−δ Hence θ ≥ 1−γ− δ(1 + γ) 1−δ = (1 − γ − 2δ) . 1−δ  According to the lemma, our approach will give us a slice that is within distance 1+γ 1 − γ − 2δ of the Euclidean ball (provided we satisfy the hypotheses), and this distance can be made as close as we wish to 1 if γ and δ are small enough.
