From the stories of the first edition:
"This ebook presents a entire and specific account of other subject matters in algorithmic three-d topology, culminating with the popularity technique for Haken manifolds and together with the up to date ends up in desktop enumeration of 3-manifolds. Originating from lecture notes of varied classes given via the writer over a decade, the ebook is meant to mix the pedagogical process of a graduate textbook (without workouts) with the completeness and reliability of a study monograph…
All the fabric, with few exceptions, is gifted from the unusual standpoint of distinct polyhedra and unique spines of 3-manifolds. This selection contributes to maintain the extent of the exposition relatively common.
In end, the reviewer subscribes to the citation from the again hide: "the ebook fills a spot within the present literature and should develop into a regular reference for algorithmic three-d topology either for graduate scholars and researchers".

For this 2nd version, new effects, new proofs, and commentaries for a greater orientation of the reader were extra. particularly, in bankruptcy 7 numerous new sections touching on purposes of the pc application "3-Manifold Recognizer" were integrated.

During this e-book the writer has attempted to use "a little mind's eye and considering" to modelling dynamical phenomena from a classical atomic and molecular viewpoint. Nonlinearity is emphasised, as are phenomena that are elusive from the continuum mechanics perspective. FORTRAN programmes are supplied within the appendices An creation to formal integrability thought of partial differential structures; Frolicher-Nijenhuis thought of derivations; differential algebraic formalism of connections; beneficial stipulations for variational sprays; obstructions to the integrability of the Euler-Lagrange method; the category of in the neighborhood variational sprays on two-dimensional manifolds; Euler-Lagrange platforms within the isotropic case
Dirac operators play an immense function in numerous domain names of arithmetic and physics, for instance: index idea, elliptic pseudodifferential operators, electromagnetism, particle physics, and the illustration thought of Lie teams. during this primarily self-contained paintings, the fundamental principles underlying the idea that of Dirac operators are explored.
This monograph is an annotated translation of what's thought of to be the world’s first calculus textbook, initially released in French in 1696. That anonymously released textbook on differential calculus used to be according to lectures given to the Marquis de l’Hôpital in 1691-2 via the good Swiss mathematician, Johann Bernoulli.

It turns out that only the choice of the neutral disc is important. For instance, moving A and ﬁxed C (see Fig. 32) and moving C and ﬁxed A produce the same result. Therefore, in a neighborhood of a triple point the move α can be made in three diﬀerent ways. 27. Just to ﬁx terminology, let us say that a special polyhedron P contains a loop if the singular graph SP of P contains a loop such that is the boundary curve of a 2-component of P and has a nontrivial normal bundle. It is evident that P contains a loop if and only if it can be obtained from another special polyhedron by the loop move.
A simple polyhedron P ⊂ M with a mark m is called a marked polyhedron and denoted (P, m). 22. Two marked polyhedra P1 , P2 are (T, L, m)-equivalent T,L,m (notation: P1 ∼ P2 ) if one can pass from one to the other by the following moves: (1) T ±1 - and L±1 -moves carried out far from the mark. This means that the mark must lie outside the fragments of P that are replaced during the moves. (2) m-move consisting of transferring the mark from one 2-cell of a bubble to another 2-cell of the same bubble.
1–3, 11, 12 of  for a complete account of the subject. Let X, Y be 2-dimensional polyhedra. (I) Isomorphism of fundamental groups. X ∼ Y if π1 (X) = π1 (Y ). This relation is fairy rough. For example, taking the one-point union with S 2 preserves the fundamental group but increases the Euler characteristic by 1. 22) is essentially an addition of S 2 . (II) The same fundamental group and Euler characteristic. X ∼ Y if π1 (X) = π1 (Y ) and χ(X) = χ(Y ). (III) Homotopy equivalence. Recall that two topological spaces X and Y are homotopy equivalent if there exist maps f : X → Y and g: Y → X such 32 1 Simple and Special Polyhedra that the maps f g : X → X and gf : Y → Y are homotopic to the identity.
