On the geometry of diffusion operators and stochastic flows by K.D. Elworthy;Y. Le Jan;Xue-Mei Li

By K.D. Elworthy;Y. Le Jan;Xue-Mei Li

Stochastic differential equations, and Hoermander shape representations of diffusion operators, can be sure a linear connection linked to the underlying (sub)-Riemannian constitution. this is often systematically defined, including its invariants, after which exploited to debate qualitative homes of stochastic flows, and research on direction areas of compact manifolds with diffusion measures. this could be priceless to stochastic analysts, particularly people with pursuits in stochastic flows, limitless dimensional research, or geometric research, and in addition to researchers in sub-Riemannian geometry. A simple heritage in differential geometry is thought, however the building of the connections is particularly direct and itself offers an intuitive and urban creation. wisdom of stochastic research can be assumed for later chapters.

Homotopy Methods in Topological Fixed and Periodic Points by Jerzy Jezierski, Waclaw Marzantowicz

By Jerzy Jezierski, Waclaw Marzantowicz

This can be the 1st systematic and self-contained textbook on homotopy tools within the learn of periodic issues of a map. a latest exposition of the classical topological fixed-point conception with an entire set of the entire beneficial notions in addition to new proofs of the Lefschetz-Hopf and Wecken theorems are included.Periodic issues are studied by utilizing Lefschetz numbers of iterations of a map and Nielsen-Jiang periodic numbers relating to the Nielsen numbers of iterations of this map. Wecken theorem for periodic issues is then mentioned within the moment 1/2 the publication and several other effects at the homotopy minimum classes are given as purposes, e.g. a homotopy model of the Åarkovsky theorem, a dynamics of equivariant maps, and a relation to the topological entropy. scholars and researchers in fastened aspect thought, dynamical structures, and algebraic topology will locate this article priceless.

Dimension and Extensions by J. M. Aarts

By J. M. Aarts

Sorts of possible unrelated extension difficulties are mentioned during this booklet. Their universal concentration is a long-standing challenge of Johannes de Groot, the most conjecture of which was once lately resolved. As is correct of many vital conjectures, a variety of mathematical investigations had built, that have been grouped into the 2 extension difficulties. the 1st matters the extending of areas, the second one matters extending the idea of size via changing the empty area with different areas. the issues of De Groot involved compactifications of areas via an adjunction of a collection of minimum size. This minimum size was once known as the compactness deficiency of an area. Early good fortune in 1942 led De Groot to invent a generalization of the measurement functionality, known as the compactness measure of an area, with the desire that this functionality might internally symbolize the compactness deficiency that's a topological invariant of an area that's externally outlined through compact extensions of an area. From this, the 2 extension difficulties have been spawned. With the classical measurement thought as a version, the inductive, masking and simple points of the measurement features are investigated during this quantity, leading to extensions of the sum, subspace and decomposition theorems and theorems approximately mappings into spheres. provided are examples, counterexamples, open difficulties and ideas of the unique and converted compactification difficulties.
