Combinatorial Group Theory: Presentations of Groups in Terms by Wilhelm Magnus

By Wilhelm Magnus

This seminal, much-cited account starts with a pretty user-friendly exposition of simple innovations and a dialogue of issue teams and subgroups. the themes of Nielsen variations, loose and amalgamated items, and commutator calculus obtain specified therapy. The concluding bankruptcy surveys be aware, conjugacy, and comparable difficulties; adjunction and embedding difficulties; and extra. moment, revised 1976 version.

Introduction to Higher-Order Categorical Logic

Half I shows that typed-calculi are a formula of higher-order common sense, and cartesian closed different types are primarily a similar. half II demonstrates that one other formula of higher-order common sense is heavily relating to topos concept.

Flag varieties : an interplay of geometry, combinatorics, and representation theory

Flag types are very important geometric items and their research comprises an interaction of geometry, combinatorics, and illustration concept. This e-book is designated account of this interaction. within the region of illustration conception, the ebook offers a dialogue of complicated semisimple Lie algebras and of semisimple algebraic teams; additionally, the illustration concept of symmetric teams can also be mentioned.

Sn ⊆ U , and suppose that we are interested in reconstructing S1 , . . , Sn , or in finding k elements of each Si (for some parameter k). We are provided with procedures such that for any set A ⊆ U , we can compute: – Intersection Cardinality: ISize(S1 , . . , Sn , A) = |S1 ∩ A|, . . , |Sn ∩ A| . – Intersection Sum: ISum(S1 , . . , Sn , A) = u∈S1 ∩A u, . . , u∈Sn ∩A u . Clearly, given a sufficient number of calls to these procedures, it is possible to fully reconstruct S1 , . . , Sn . However, we aim at doing so with a minimal amount of work.

Recall that given a collection S containing n subsets of U , the k-reconstruction problem is: For each S ∈ S, find min(k, |S|) elements of S. The bounded k-reconstruction problem is: Fully reconstruct every set S ∈ S of size at most k. For the bounded k-reconstruction problem, bounded k-peelers fully solve the problem. Thus, we obtain: Theorem 4. Suppose that computing ISize(S, A) or ISum(S, A) for all S ∈ S and one set A takes O(f ) steps. Then, there exist deterministic and randomized algorithms for the bounded k-reconstruction problem with the following running times: – Deterministic: O(k · polylog(m)(f + n)) steps.
