C*-algebras and elliptic operators in differential topology by Yu. P. Solovyov and E. V. Troitsky

By Yu. P. Solovyov and E. V. Troitsky

The purpose of this booklet is to offer a few functions of practical research and the idea of differential operators to the research of topological invariants of manifolds. the most topological program mentioned within the publication issues the matter of the outline of homotopy-invariant rational Pontryagin numbers of non-simply attached manifolds and the Novikov conjecture of homotopy invariance of upper signatures. The definition of upper signatures and the formula of the Novikov conjecture are given in bankruptcy three. during this bankruptcy, the authors additionally provide an outline of alternative ways to the facts of the Novikov conjecture. First, there's the Mishchenko symmetric signature and the generalized Hirzebruch formulae and the Mishchenko theorem of homotopy invariance of upper signatures for manifolds whose primary teams have a classifying area, being a whole Riemannian non-positive curvature manifold. Then the authors current Solovyov's evidence of the Novikov conjecture for manifolds with primary crew isomorphic to a discrete subgroup of a linear algebraic staff over a neighborhood box, according to the concept of the Bruhat-Tits construction. eventually, the authors speak about the procedure as a result of Kasparov in line with the operator $KK$-theory and one other facts of the Mishchenko theorem. In bankruptcy four, they define the method of the Novikov conjecture as a result of Connes and Moscovici related to cyclic homology. that enables one to end up the conjecture within the case while the basic crew is a (Gromov) hyperbolic team. The textual content presents a concise exposition of a few subject matters from sensible research (for example, $C^*$-Hilbert modules, $K$-theory or $C^*$-bundles, Hermitian $K$-theory, Fredholm representations, $KK$-theory, and practical integration) from the speculation of differential operators (pseudodifferential calculus and Sobolev chains over $C^*$-algebras), and from differential topology (characteristic classes). The publication explains easy rules of the topic and will function a path textual content for an creation to the research of unique works and specified monographs.

Singular Coverings of Toposes by Marta Bunge, Jonathon Funk

By Marta Bunge, Jonathon Funk

The self-contained concept of sure singular coverings of toposes known as entire spreads, that's provided during this quantity, is a box of curiosity to topologists operating in knot conception, in addition to to numerous categorists. It extends the entire spreads in topology as a result of R. H. Fox (1957) yet, not like the classical idea, it emphasizes an unforeseen reference to topos distributions within the experience of F. W. Lawvere (1983). The structures, notwithstanding usually influenced by means of classical theories, are often rather varied from them. exact periods of distributions and of entire spreads, encouraged respectively by means of sensible research and topology, are studied. one of the former are the likelihood distributions; the branched coverings are singled out among the latter.

This quantity can also be used as a textbook for a sophisticated one-year graduate path introducing topos idea with an emphasis on geometric functions. during the authors emphasize open difficulties. a number of regimen proofs are left as workouts, but additionally as ‘exercises’ the reader will locate open questions for attainable destiny paintings in a number of issues in arithmetic which can make the most of a express approach.
