By I. M. James,E. H. Kronheimer

this can be a memorial quantity to the prestigious Canadian-born mathematician Hugh Dowker, essentially the most very popular topologists within the uk and someday Professor at Birkbeck collage, London. the quantity includes particularly written articles on a number of topological themes through specialists in lots of nations who labored with Dowker at one time or one other. those comprise survey, expository and study articles on normal topology, algebraic topology and comparable topics reminiscent of knot idea and graph conception. the amount should be of significant curiosity to graduate scholars mathematicians whose speciality is topology, in all its aspects.

Topological Signal Processing (Mathematical Engineering)

Sign processing is the self-discipline of extracting details from collections of measurements. To be powerful, the measurements needs to be equipped after which filtered, detected, or reworked to reveal the specified details. Distortions because of uncertainty, noise, and litter degrade the functionality of sensible sign processing structures.
