The Knot Book

Knots are generic items. We use them to moor our boats, to wrap our applications, to tie our sneakers. but the mathematical conception of knots speedy results in deep leads to topology and geometry. "The Knot Book" is an advent to this wealthy idea, beginning with our standard figuring out of knots and a little collage algebra and completing with interesting subject matters of present examine.

Elementary Topology and Applications

The cloth during this e-book is geared up in one of these approach that the reader will get to major functions quick, and the emphasis is at the geometric realizing and use of recent strategies. The topic of the e-book is that topology is basically the language of recent arithmetic.

Three-Dimensional Geometry and Topology

This ebook develops a number of the amazing richness, good looks, and gear of geometry in and 3 dimensions, and the robust connection of geometry with topology. Hyperbolic geometry is the big name. a powerful attempt has been made to exhibit not only denatured formal reasoning (definitions, theorems, and proofs), yet a residing feeling for the topic.

Simplicial Structures in Topology

Simplicial buildings in Topology presents a transparent and entire advent to the topic. principles are constructed within the first 4 chapters. The 5th bankruptcy stories closed surfaces and offers their type. The final bankruptcy of the publication is dedicated to homotopy teams, that are utilized in a brief advent on obstruction concept.

Example text

Then, by (v), ,f-' ( Y -U)- c f - ' ( Y - U ) which implies that f - '(Y -U)- = f' (Y - U ) . Therefore, p E [ X - f -I ( Y - U ) ] E z and f ( X - f - ' (Y - U ) ) = U . (ii) implies (vi): Obvious. consists of unions of commutes with unions and (vi) implies (ii): Straightforward,since the topology finite intersections of elements of z and f intersections. IS. Corollary. ~f continuous. x ' :Y -' CT > Z and f and g are continuous, then g o f is Proof. Immediate from Theorem 14 (ii), because 16. Corollary.

6. Definition. Given a space X, finite families { q I i = 1,. . , n } of spaces and functions f i : X + y,, gi : 6 4 Zi , i = 1,. . ) 51 From Old to New Spaces Because of Theorem 3, the following result is immediate. At this stage, the reader may wonder: But it seems that the definition of the product topology could be applied to infinite products verbatim. Can it? Of course, it can! Furthermore, it is easy to see that all results of this section are valid for infinite products. Indeed, with the possible exception of Lemma 5 , the proofs of the other results apply to infinite products verbatim.

Lemmas 2 , 4 and 7 and Theorem 3 remain valid for any product spaces. , n , be a finite family of metric spaces. By analogy with the standard definition of distance i n the Cartesian plane ( i . e . , d ( ( x , , xz), ( y , , y 2 ) ) = J(x, - Y , ) +~ ( x , - y2)2 ), we define a function d : ( 1 7 ~ = , X i ) x ( 1 7 ~ = ,+ X i El ) by This function d will always be referred to as the product-metric. 9. Proposition. The product-metric d is actually a metric on I-Iy=, X i . Proof. Certainly, we only need to verify the triangle inequality.
