By Barry Dayton, Charles Weibel (auth.), J. F. Jardine, V. P. Snaith (eds.)

A NATO complicated examine Institute entitled "Algebraic K-theory: Connections with Geometry and Topology" used to be held on the Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada from December 7 to December eleven of 1987. This assembly was once together supported via NATO and the common Sciences and Engineering learn Council of Canada, and was once backed partially by way of the Canadian Mathematical Society. This e-book is the quantity of court cases for that assembly. Algebraic K-theory is largely the research of homotopy invariants coming up from earrings and their linked matrix teams. extra importantly probably, the topic has develop into primary to the examine of the connection among Topology, Algebraic Geometry and quantity concept. It attracts on all of those fields as a topic in its personal correct, however it serves in addition to a good translator for the appliance of options from one box in one other. The papers during this quantity are consultant of the present country of the topic. they're, for the main half, examine papers that are basically of curiosity to researchers within the box and to these desiring to be such. there's a part on difficulties during this quantity which might be of specific curiosity to scholars; it encompasses a dialogue of the issues from Gersten's recognized record of 1973, in addition to a brief record of latest problems.

Leopold is overjoyed to post this vintage e-book as a part of our large vintage Library assortment. some of the books in our assortment were out of print for many years, and for this reason haven't been available to most of the people. the purpose of our publishing software is to facilitate swift entry to this colossal reservoir of literature, and our view is this is an important literary paintings, which merits to be introduced again into print after many many years.

A tour of subriemannian geometries, their geodesics and applications

Subriemannian geometries, often referred to as Carnot-Caratheodory geometries, might be seen as limits of Riemannian geometries. additionally they come up in actual phenomenon regarding ""geometric phases"" or holonomy. Very approximately talking, a subriemannian geometry involves a manifold endowed with a distribution (meaning a $k$-plane box, or subbundle of the tangent bundle), referred to as horizontal including an internal product on that distribution.
