This quantity consists of 21 chapters, which symbolize teams of papers. the 1st crew, written among 1952 and 1957, is mainly enthusiastic about fiber areas and the Spanier-Whitehead S-theory. within the moment workforce, written among 1957 and 1960, Whitehead returns to classical topology after an extended period, and participates within the renewed attack at the difficulties which interested him such a lot.
This publication will turn out important to mathematicians.

Advances in Queueing idea and community purposes offers numerous precious mathematical analyses in queueing concept and mathematical types of key applied sciences in stressed and instant communique networks akin to channel entry controls, net purposes, topology building, strength saving schemes, and transmission scheduling.
Following Quillen's method of advanced cobordism, the authors introduce the suggestion of orientated cohomology idea at the class of gentle kinds over a hard and fast box. They turn out the life of a common such concept (in attribute zero) known as Algebraic Cobordism. The e-book additionally includes a few examples of computations and purposes.
This can be a unified remedy of a number of the algebraic techniques to geometric areas. The learn of algebraic curves within the advanced projective airplane is the traditional hyperlink among linear geometry at an undergraduate point and algebraic geometry at a graduate point, and it's also a huge subject in geometric purposes, equivalent to cryptography.
Translated from the preferred French version, the aim of the publication is to supply a self-contained advent to intend topological size, an invariant of dynamical platforms brought in 1999 through Misha Gromov. The booklet examines how this invariant was once effectively utilized by Elon Lindenstrauss and Benjamin Weiss to respond to a long-standing open query approximately embeddings of minimum dynamical structures into shifts.
