This topic has been of serious curiosity either to topologists and to quantity theorists. the 1st a part of this publication describes many of the paintings of Kuo-Tsai Chen on iterated integrals and the elemental staff of a manifold. the writer makes an attempt to make his exposition obtainable to starting graduate scholars. He then proceeds to use Chen's structures to algebraic geometry, displaying how this ends up in a few effects on algebraic cycles and the Abel-Jacobi homomorphism. ultimately, he offers a extra normal perspective bearing on Chen's integrals to a generalization of the concept that of linking numbers, and finally ends up with a brand new invariant of homology periods in a projective algebraic manifold. The booklet is predicated on a path given by way of the writer on the Nankai Institute of arithmetic within the fall of 2001.

This paintings attracts jointly rules from algebraic topology, practical research and geometry. it's a software - a way of conveying info between those 3 matters - and it's been used with good fortune to find theorems throughout a large span of arithmetic. the aim of this publication is to acquaint the reader with the basic principles of analytic K-homology and improve a few of its functions.
First textbook-level account of easy examples and strategies during this zone. appropriate for self-study through a reader who is aware a bit commutative algebra and algebraic geometry already. David Eisenbud is a well known mathematician and present president of the yank Mathematical Society, in addition to a profitable Springer writer.
"It provides a delicate portrait of a superb individual. It describes appropriately and intelligibly on a nontechnical point the realm of mathematical principles within which Hilbert created his masterpieces. And it illuminates the historical past of German social historical past opposed to which the drama of Hilberts lifestyles used to be performed.
From the preface of the writer: ". .. i've got divided this paintings into books; within the first of those i've got restrained myself to these issues pertaining to natural research. within the moment e-book i've got defined these factor which has to be identified from geometry, seeing that research is typically built in one of these approach that its program to geometry is proven.
