By A. N. Parshin (auth.), A. N. Parshin, I. R. Shafarevich (eds.)

From the experiences of the 1st printing of this booklet, released as quantity fifty eight of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences:
"... This publication can be very helpful as a reference and consultant to researchers and graduate scholars in algebra and and topology." Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Ungarn, 1994 "... The ebook less than evaluation involves monographs on geometric features of crew conception: Combinatorial crew conception and basic teams" by means of D.J.Collins and H.Zieschang ...: "Some difficulties of workforce conception concerning geometry" by means of R.I.Grigorchuk and P.F.Kurchanov. ... jointly, those articles shape a wide-ranging survey of combinatorial staff idea, with emphasis greatly at the geometric roots of the topic. it will be an invaluable reference paintings for the specialist, in addition to delivering an outline of the topic for the outsider or beginner. many alternative subject matters are defined and explored, with the most effects awarded yet now not proved. this permits the reader to get the flavor of those themes with out changing into slowed down intimately. either articles supply finished bibliographies, in order that it truly is attainable to take advantage of this booklet because the start line for a extra unique examine of a selected subject of curiosity. ... In precis, a really fascinating publication! Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1996 "... In either essays the authors provide transparent and entire definitions, examples and statements (but no longer proofs) of theorems, in order that the ebook might be understood by way of a reader with a minimum heritage in workforce thought or geometry. any such reader, wanting to determine what's recognized during this quarter, will locate this a whole and obtainable shop of information." modern Physics, 1994 "...This survey (Part II) provides for the 1st time that difficulties in monograph shape and incidentally bargains a unifying remedy of a few of the ways to their ideas, so far as they're identified, including tricks to open difficulties. A titbit for each reader!" Monatshefte für Mathematik, 1995

Computer Algebra in Scientific Computing: 15th International Workshop, CASC 2013, Berlin, Germany, September 9-13, 2013. Proceedings

This booklet constitutes the complaints of the 14th foreign Workshop on desktop Algebra in medical Computing, CASC 2013, held in Berlin, Germany, in September 2013. The 33 complete papers awarded have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen for inclusion during this ebook. The papers deal with concerns similar to polynomial algebra; the answer of tropical linear structures and tropical polynomial structures; the idea of matrices; using desktop algebra for the research of varied mathematical and utilized issues relating to usual differential equations (ODEs); functions of symbolic computations for fixing partial differential equations (PDEs) in mathematical physics; difficulties coming up on the software of computing device algebra equipment for locating infinitesimal symmetries; purposes of symbolic and symbolic-numeric algorithms in mechanics and physics; computerized differentiation; the applying of the CAS Mathematica for the simulation of quantum blunders correction in quantum computing; the appliance of the CAS hole for the enumeration of Schur earrings over the gang A5; positive computation of 0 separation bounds for mathematics expressions; the parallel implementation of quickly Fourier transforms as a result of the Spiral library new release process; using object-oriented languages corresponding to Java or Scala for implementation of different types as variety sessions; a survey of commercial functions of approximate computing device algebra.

Theorem. Let the group G act without inversion on the tree X and let Y = XjG be the quotient graph. For any vertex v and edge a of Y let fJ and jj denote a vertex and edge of X lying over v and a respectively. Then G is (isomorphic to) the fundamental group of a graph (g, Y) of groups whose vertex groups and edge groups, respectively, are stabilisers of the form Gv = Stabc(fJ) and Ga = Stabc(jj). 22. Theorem. Let G be the fundamental group of a graph (9, Y) of groups and E+ (Y) an orientation of Y.

Fig. 1 many Whitehead automorphisms will replace u and v by minimal words Uo and Vo. 9, Uo can be transformed into Vo by a sequence of applications of permutation and Whitehead automorphisms in such a way that the lengths of the intermediate words obtained are the same as the length of Uo and Vo.

We will explain it with an example. 12. Example. 6 (d). Then 7r1(N2) = (a, b I a2b2). The symmetric group Sym(3) consists of the six elements 1, r = (12), s = (13), t = (23), u = (123), v = (132), where r, s, t have order 2 and u, v have order 3. Elements f(a), f(b) with f(a)2 f(b)2 = 1 determine a homomorphism f : 7r1(N2) -; Sym(3). If f(a) = 1 or f(b) = 1 then f is not transitive. If f(a) has order 2 then, up to equivalence, f(a) = r, f(b) = s. If the order of f(a) is 3 then f(b) = f(a)-I and, up to equivalence, f(a) = u, f(b) = v.
