Variations, geometry and physics, In honour of Demeter Krupka's 65 birthday

This publication is a suite of survey articles in a wide box of the geometrical concept of the calculus of adaptations and its purposes in research, geometry and physics. it's a commemorative quantity to rejoice the sixty-fifth birthday of Professor Krupa, one of many founders of recent geometric variational idea, and an incredible contributor to this subject and its functions during the last thirty-five years.

Euclid—The Creation of Mathematics

This booklet is for all enthusiasts ofmathematics. it really is an try and below­ stand the character of arithmetic from the perspective of its most vital early resource. whether the cloth lined via Euclid might be thought of ele­ mentary for the main half, the best way he provides it has set the traditional for greater than thousand years.

The Symmetries of Things

Commence with a unmarried form. Repeat it in a few way—translation, mirrored image over a line, rotation round a point—and you could have created symmetry. Symmetry is a primary phenomenon in artwork, technology, and nature that has been captured, defined, and analyzed utilizing mathematical techniques for a very long time. encouraged via the geometric instinct of invoice Thurston and empowered by way of his personal analytical talents, John Conway, along with his coauthors, has built a finished mathematical idea of symmetry that enables the outline and type of symmetries in different geometric environments.

Given a representation M = (Vi , fα ) of Q, the dimension vector of M is the element dim(M ) := (dim Vi )i∈Q0 of ZQ0 . Note that if 0 → M → M → M → 0 is a short exact sequence of such representations, we have dim(M ) = dim(M )+dim(M ). 1) dim : K (rep k (Q)) → ZQ0 on the Grothendieck group of rep k (Q). We will later identify ZQ0 with the root lattice of the Kac-Moody algebra associated to the undirected graph Q underlying Q. Before giving some examples, let us first introduce two important representation-theoretic definitions.

The previous discussions shows that the existence of an exact functor G : A → B between two finitary abelian categories induces a well-defined linear map G∗e := G∗ ⊗ C[K (G )] : HAe −→ HBe of vector spaces. Let us now examine under what conditions this map is a (co)algebra morphism. 2, let [M ]kR¯ , [N ]kS¯ be basis elements of HAe . 14) determines the product structure on the extended Hall algebra. Hence G∗e [M ]kR¯ · [N ]kS¯ = (N, R)Am G∗ [M ] · [N ] kG (R)+G (S) ! = (N, R)Am G∗ [M ] · G∗ [N ] kG (R) · kG (S) , where we have used in the second equality that G∗ is a morphism of algebras, whereas G∗e [M ]kR¯ ) · G∗e [N ]kS¯ ) = G∗ [M ]kG (R) · G∗ [N ]kG (S) = (G (N ), G (R))Bm G∗ [M ] · G∗ [N ] kG (R) · kG (S) .

Remark. Two such realisations (h1 , Π1 , Π∨ 1 ), (h2 , Π2 , Π2 ) are called isomorphic if there exists ∨ ∗ a complex vector space isomorphism φ : h1 → h2 such that φ(Π∨ 1 ) = Π2 and φ (Π2 ) = Π1 . By [33, Prop. 1], any two realisations of A are isomorphic. 3. Example Take as quiver Q = • → • = A2 , of which the undirected graph is the Dynkin diagram of the simple Lie algebra sl3 (C). Its associated Cartan matrix is 2 −1 . 10) Note that rk(A) = 2 and s = 2, so we are looking for a complex vector space h of dimension dimC (h) = 2.
