The twenty years because the booklet of this ebook were an period of continuous development and improvement within the box of algebraic topology. New generations of younger mathematicians were proficient, and classical difficulties were solved, quite during the program of geometry and knot idea.

This specified quantity, caused by a convention on the Chern Institute of arithmetic devoted to the reminiscence of Xiao-Song Lin, provides a extensive connection among topology and physics as exemplified via the connection among low-dimensional topology and quantum box concept. the quantity comprises works on photo (2+1) - TQFTs and their purposes to quantum computing, categorification and Khovanov homology, Gromov - Witten kind invariants, twisted Alexander polynomials, Faddeev knots, generalized Ricci stream, Calabi - Yau difficulties for CR manifolds, Milnor's conjecture on quantity of simplexes, Heegaard genera of 3-manifolds, and the (A,B) - slice challenge.

Weight the intersections of the first type by C1 and those of the second type by 1. L1 ; L2 /. This number is independent of the choice of F and perturbations, compare with the definition (3) below. (2) Consider a regular projection of L1 [L2 . 1. L1 ; L2 /. S 3 n L2 / carried by L1 . S 3 n L2 / D Z is generated by the homology class Œm of a meridian m of L2 . L1 ; L2 / m. L2 ; L1 / and lk. L1 ; L2 / where L1 is L1 with reversed orientation. Example. 2 have linking numbers C2 and 2, respectively.

Therefore, we may assume that p 0. On the other hand, the choice of longitude is very far from being unique - any curve of the form n 1 C 1 is as good as 1 since it maps to 1 by n Dehn twists along 1 . The effect of replacing 1 by n 1 C 1 is in adding n times first column of A to its second column; similarly, the effect of replacing 2 by n 2 C 2 is in subtracting n times second row of A from its first row. 2). 0; 1/ is simply S 1 S 2 . e. 0 Ä q Ä p 1. 1; 0/ D S 3 , which is a manifold of Heegaard genus 0.

Z0 ; z1 ; z2 / is usually denoted by Œz0 W z1 W z2 . The complex projective plane CP 2 is covered by three coordinate charts Ui D ¹zi ¤ 0º; i D 0; 1; 2, each of which is homeomorphic to C 2 via homeomorphisms h0 W U0 ! C 2 ; Œz0 W z1 W z2 7! z1 =z0 ; z2 =z0 /; h 1 W U1 ! C 2 ; Œz0 W z1 W z2 7! z0 =z1 ; z2 =z1 /; 2 h 2 W U2 ! C ; Œz0 W z1 W z2 7! z0 =z2 ; z1 =z2 /: The charts U0 and U1 together cover all of CP 2 but the point Œ0 W 0 W 1. Therefore, U0 [ U1 is a punctured CP 2 . U0 \U1 / D C C.
