During the last 20-30 years, knot concept has rekindled its historical ties with biology, chemistry, and physics as a way of constructing extra refined descriptions of the entanglements and houses of traditional phenomena--from strings to natural compounds to DNA. This quantity relies at the 2008 AMS brief path, functions of Knot idea. the purpose of the quick direction and this quantity, whereas now not masking all elements of utilized knot idea, is to supply the reader with a mathematical appetizer, to be able to stimulate the mathematical urge for food for extra research of this interesting box. No earlier wisdom of topology, biology, chemistry, or physics is believed. particularly, the 1st 3 chapters of this quantity introduce the reader to knot idea (by Colin Adams), topological chirality and molecular symmetry (by Erica Flapan), and DNA topology (by Dorothy Buck). the second one half this quantity is concentrated on 3 specific purposes of knot idea. Louis Kauffman discusses purposes of knot conception to physics, Nadrian Seeman discusses how topology is utilized in DNA nanotechnology, and Jonathan Simon discusses the statistical and lively houses of knots and their relation to molecular biology.

Get Grothendieck-Serre Correspondence PDF

This amazing quantity features a huge a part of the mathematical correspondence among A. Grothendieck and J-P. Serre. It varieties a brilliant creation to the advance of algebraic geometry through the years 1955-1965. in this interval, algebraic geometry went via a impressive transformation, and Grothendieck and Serre have been between critical figures during this technique.

Wavelets: Algorithms & Applications by Yves Meyer, Robert D. Ryan PDF

During this textual content, the writer offers mathematical heritage and significant wavelet functions, starting from the electronic phone to galactic constitution and construction of the universe. It discusses intimately the historical origins, the algorithms and the functions of wavelets.
