Helices and vector bundles: seminaire Rudakov

This quantity is dedicated to using helices as a mode for learning extraordinary vector bundles, a huge and normal inspiration in algebraic geometry. The paintings arises out of a sequence of seminars geared up in Moscow via A. N. Rudakov. the 1st article units up the overall equipment, and later ones discover its use in numerous contexts.

Biorthogonal Systems in Banach Spaces

One of many primary questions of Banach area thought is whether or not each Banach area has a foundation. an area with a foundation provides us the sensation of familiarity and concreteness, and maybe an opportunity to try the category of all Banach areas and different difficulties. the most targets of this ebook are to: • introduce the reader to a couple of the elemental thoughts, effects and purposes of biorthogonal platforms in endless dimensional geometry of Banach areas, and in topology and nonlinear research in Banach areas; • to take action in a way obtainable to graduate scholars and researchers who've a beginning in Banach house idea; • reveal the reader to a few present avenues of analysis in biorthogonal structures in Banach areas; • offer notes and workouts regarding the subject, in addition to suggesting open difficulties and attainable instructions of analysis.

2. X is an AR [resp. ANR] if and only if, for any space Y and closed subspace Z, every continuous map ~:Z ~ X extends to Y [resp. given ~, there is a neighborhood U of Z for which ~ extends to U]. 3. X is an ANR if and only if, for any space Y and decreasing sequence (Zn) of closed subspaces with Z = N Zn, every continuous ~:Z--~X extends to Z n for sufficiently large n. An AR is homeomorphic to a retract of the Hilbert cube I~, and is contractible; an ANR is homeomorphic to a (compact) retract of an open set in I=.

A shape theory for general (separable) C*-algebras, which exactly restricts to topological shape theory in the commutative case, was developed in [i]; this theory overcomes both drawbacks of [3]. It is hoped that this shape theory will play a role in noncommutative topology similar to that played by ordinary shape theory in the commutative case. 39 In this article, we give a survey of topological shape theory, the noncommutative theory of [i], and some applications, examples, and open problems.
