By Yair N. Minsky, Makoto Sakuma, Caroline Series

The topic of Kleinian teams and hyperbolic 3-manifolds is presently present process explosively quickly improvement, the previous few years having noticeable the solution of many longstanding conjectures. This quantity includes vital expositions and unique paintings by way of many of the major individuals on subject matters similar to topology and geometry of 3-manifolds, curve complexes, classical Ahlfors-Bers conception, computing device explorations and projective buildings. Researchers in those and comparable parts will locate a lot of curiosity right here from the explosion within the region over contemporary years, together with vital and unique learn from top names within the box.

Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration idea of finite teams has visible swift development in recent times with the advance of effective algorithms and desktop algebra structures. this is often the 1st booklet to supply an creation to the standard and modular illustration conception of finite teams with certain emphasis at the computational features of the topic.

Groups of Prime Power Order Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This is often the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to user-friendly finite p-group concept. just like the 1st quantity, 1000s of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. vital subject matters provided during this monograph comprise: (a) category of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are basic, (b) class of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) category of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) category of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p² are abelian, (h) type of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index p² are labeled.

Group Representations, Ergodic Theory, and Mathematical Physics: A Tribute to George W. Mackey

George Mackey was once a unprecedented mathematician of serious strength and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration idea, harmonic research, ergodic thought, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that keeps this day. This ebook relies on lectures awarded at an AMS certain consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.

The next lemma gives us the relationship between local isomorphism of rtffr groups and the local isomorphism of finitely generated projective modules. Its proof rests on the fact that an additive functor takes multiplication by an integer to multiplication by an integer. It is left as an exercise. 1 Let G be an rtffr group, let H, K ∈ Po (G) be rtffr groups, and let E = End(G). The following are equivalent. 1. H and K are locally isomorphic as groups. 36 CHAPTER 2. MOTIVATION BY EXAMPLE 2. HG (H) and HG (K) are locally isomorphic as right E-modules.

That is, II ∗ = S where I ∗ = {q ∈ QS qI ⊂ S}. 3. Each nonzero ideal of S is a unique product of maximal ideals in S. 4. S is a hereditary Noetherian integral domain. 5. The localization SM is a discrete valuation domain for each maximal ideal M in S. That is, there is an element π ∈ SM such that each ideal of SM has the form π k SM for some integer k > 0. For example, Z is a Dedekind domain as is any pid. The ring of algebraic integers in an algebraic number field is a Dedekind domain. The rtffr ring E is integrally closed if whenever E ⊂ E ⊂ QE is a ring such that E /E is finite then E = E .

4. 5) iff QU ∼ = QV as right QE-modules. ) Semi-prime rtffr rings are closely connected to integrally closed rings as the following result shows. The next two results follow from [10, page 127]. 2 Let E be a semi-prime rtffr ring. There is a finite set of primes {p1 , . . , ps } ⊂ Z such that Ep is a classical maximal order for all p ∈ {p1 , . . , ps }. 3 Suppose that E is a semi-prime rtffr ring. 7 Semi-Perfect Rings The ring E is semi-perfect if 1. E/J (E) is semi-simple Artinian and 2. Given an e¯2 = e¯ ∈ E/J (E) there is an e2 = e ∈ E such that e¯ = e + J (E).
