As a part of the clinical task in reference to the seventieth birthday of the Adam Mickiewicz college in Poznan, a global convention on algebraic topology was once held. within the ensuing court cases quantity, the emphasis is on vast survey papers, a few provided on the convention, a few written subsequently.

** The Geometry of Physics and Knots**

Bargains with a space of analysis that lies on the crossroads of arithmetic and physics. the cloth awarded right here rests totally on the pioneering paintings of Vaughan Jones and Edward Witten concerning polynomial invariants of knots to a topological quantum box thought in 2+1 dimensions. Professor Atiyah provides an advent to Witten's rules from the mathematical perspective.

This quantity grew from a dialogue by way of the editors at the trouble of discovering sturdy thesis difficulties for graduate scholars in topology. even though at any given time we every one had our personal favourite difficulties, we stated the necessity to provide scholars a much broader choice from which to settle on a subject bizarre to their pursuits.

**Lecture Notes on Elementary Topology and Geometry**

Today, the typical undergraduate arithmetic significant reveals arithmetic seriously compartmentalized. After the calculus, he's taking a direction in research and a direction in algebra. based upon his pursuits (or these of his department), he is taking classes in detailed issues. Ifhe is uncovered to topology, it is often simple aspect set topology; if he's uncovered to geom etry, it's always classical differential geometry.

**Example text**

This is the only book devoted entirely to material related to Hopf inv~riants. We can only describe it very briefly. The Hilton-Milnor process takes place in a free group, and in the collection process commutators ard produced. The book discusses commutator calculus in general. Then it derives results for distfibutivity laws and homotopy operations on spheres, including the higher Hopf invariaats. Then it uses the previous theory with different coefficient rings to deduce results about homotopy groups.

Illman has also announced [27] that the restriction homomorphism satisfies the natural asaociativity property rest" res. = res 4. Some geometric applications The product formula of the preceding section gives rise immediately to the following nice geometric result. _! Let G be a finite group and X a G-complex 6-domlnated by a finite one. Let V be any unitary complex representation of the group G and s(V) its unit sphere. Then the product X x s(V) with the diagonal Gaction has the G-homotopy type o f a finite G-complex.

Now following Liick [33], [34] one can introduce the notion of a universal functorial additive invariant (UFAI). Let C be a small full subeategory of the category of G-spaces containing 0 and {pt} . We assume that C is closed under G-homotopy equivalences and G-push-outs. A fuuctorial additive invaciant (FAI) (B,b) for C consists of a functor B : C --~ Ab from C to 27 the category of abelian groups and an assignement b associating to an object X in C an element b(X) E B(X) such that the following conditions are fullfilled: (a) If f : X --~ Y is a G-homotopy equivalence in C then B(f)(b(X)) = b(Y).
