Providing the most recent findings in issues from around the mathematical spectrum, this quantity comprises leads to natural arithmetic besides various new advances and novel purposes to different fields equivalent to chance, records, biology, and desktop technological know-how. All contributions function authors who attended the organization for girls in arithmetic learn Symposium in 2015: this convention, the 3rd in a chain of biennial meetings geared up via the organization, attracted over 330 individuals and showcased the study of girls mathematicians from academia, undefined, and government.

**Automorphisms of Surfaces after Nielsen and Thurston**

This e-book, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a direction given through Andrew Casson on the college of Texas, is designed to function an advent to the purposes of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. specifically it presents a concise exposition of the paintings of Neilsen and Thurston at the automorphisms of surfaces.

**Cobordisms and spectral sequences**

Cobordism is without doubt one of the most elementary notions of algebraic topology. This e-book is dedicated to spectral sequences with regards to cobordism conception: the spectral series of a singularity, the Adams-Novikov spectral series, and functions of those and different sequences to the research of cobordism jewelry

**Algebraic topology: homology and cohomology**

This self-contained textual content is appropriate for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars and should be used both after or at the same time with classes in most cases topology and algebra. It surveys a number of algebraic invariants: the basic team, singular and Cech homology teams, and numerous cohomology teams.

L(k−1)k ] = [L01 ] ◦ . . ◦ [L(k −1)k ] in Mor Symp means by definition that the corresponding morphisms in Symp# are equivalent (L01 , . . , L(k−1)k ) ∼ (L01 , . . 2. Recall that this relation is generated by the geometric composition moves Comp ⊂ Mor Symp# × Mor Symp# , so that there is a sequence of moves from (L01 , . . , L(k−1)k ) to (L01 , . . , L(k −1)k ) in which adjacent pairs are replaced by their embedded geometric composition. Our definition of Cerf ⊂ RelSymp by moves on equivalence classes encoded by Comp translates this into a sequence of Cerf moves from [L01 ] ◦ .

In appropriate Banach space completions, one can also show that L (Yα ) is a Banach submanifold and coisotropic, hence, a Lagrangian submanifold of A (Σ)− × A (Σ ). ) 3. The analogous construction for the 1-handle attachment Yα− ∈ Mor Borconn 2+1 (Σ , Σ) yields the transposed Lagrangian L (Yα− ) := ˜ Σ , A| ˜ Σ | A˜ ∈ A (Yα− ), F ˜ = 0} = L (Yα )T . A| A 4. To check (φ∗ × φ∗ )(L (Yα )) = L (Yφ(α) ) for a diffeomorphism φ : Σ → Σ, recall that φ, φ are the boundary restrictions of a diffeomorphism φ : Yα → Yφ(α) .

6, more vigilance such as in [26, 27, 53] is required. 1 In order to construct a 2 + 1 connected Floer field theory Bor conn 2+1 → τ Cat, it suffices to construct a functor F : Bor conn 2+1 → Symp that preserves adjunctions. 2 by the following constructions. 24 K. Wehrheim 1. 4). 2. To a diffeomorphism φ : Σ0 → Σ1 associate a symplectomorphism Lφ : MΣ0 → MΣ1 such that Lφ ◦ Lψ = Lφ◦ψ (as maps) when φ, ψ are composable.
