"This publication is meant to function a textbook for a path in algebraic topology at the start graduate point. the most themes lined are the category of compact 2-manifolds, the elemental workforce, masking areas, singular homology conception, and singular cohomology concept. those themes are constructed systematically, keeping off all pointless definitions, terminology, and technical equipment. at any place attainable, the geometric motivation in the back of a few of the strategies is emphasised. The textual content comprises fabric from the 1st 5 chapters of the author's prior booklet, ALGEBRAIC TOPOLOGY: AN creation (GTM 56), including just about all of the now out-of-print SINGULAR HOMOLOGY thought (GTM 70). the cloth from the sooner books has been conscientiously revised, corrected, and taken as much as date."

A Course on Finite Groups (Universitext) by Harvey E. Rose PDF

A path on Finite teams introduces the basics of team concept to complex undergraduate and starting graduate scholars. in line with a sequence of lecture classes constructed through the writer over decades, the e-book begins with the elemental definitions and examples and develops the speculation to the purpose the place a couple of vintage theorems should be proved.

This ebook is aimed toward graduate scholars in physics who're learning crew concept and its software to physics. It encompasses a brief rationalization of the basic wisdom and technique, and the elemental routines for the strategy, in addition to a few vital conclusions in staff concept. The e-book can be utilized by means of graduate scholars and younger researchers in physics, particularly theoretical physics.

In 1991-1993 our three-volume publication "Representation of Lie teams and Spe­ cial services" used to be released. after we began to write that booklet (in 1983), editors of "Kluwer educational Publishers" expressed their want for the ebook to be of encyclopaedic kind at the topic. Interrelations among representations of Lie teams and distinct services are very large.
