Algebraic number theory introduces students not only to new algebraic notions but also to related concepts: groups, rings, fields, ideals, quotient rings and quotient fields, homomorphisms and isomorphisms, modules, and vector spaces. Author Pierre Samuel notes that students benefit from their studies of algebraic number theory by encountering many concepts fundamental to other branches of mathematics - algebraic geometry, in particular.This book assumes a knowledge of basic algebra but supplements its teachings with brief, clear explanations of integrality, algebraic extensions of fields, Gal

The technical difficulties of algebraic number theory often make this subject appear difficult to beginners. This undergraduate textbook provides a welcome solution to these problems as it provides an approachable and thorough introduction to the topic. Algebraic Number Theory takes the reader from unique factorisation in the integers through to the modern-day number field sieve. The first few chapters consider the importance of arithmetic in fields larger than the rational numbers. Whilst some results generalise well, the unique factorisation of the integers in these more general number fields often fail. Algebraic number theory aims to overcome this problem. Most examples are taken from quadratic fields, for which calculations are easy to perform. The middle section considers more general theory and results for number fields, and the book concludes with some topics which are more likely to be suitable for advanced students, namely, the analytic class number formula and the number field sieve. This is the fi...

Careful organization and clear, detailed proofs characterize this methodical, self-contained exposition of basic results of classical algebraic number theory from a relatively modem point of view. This volume presents most of the number-theoretic prerequisites for a study of either class field theory (as formulated by Artin and Tate) or the contemporary treatment of analytical questions (as found, for example, in Tate's thesis).Although concerned exclusively with algebraic number fields, this treatment features axiomatic formulations with a considerable range of applications.

Elementary number theory an algebraic approach
Bolker, Ethan D
2007-01-01
This text uses the concepts usually taught in the first semester of a modern abstract algebra course to illuminate classical number theory: theorems on primitive roots, quadratic Diophantine equations, and the Fermat conjecture for exponents three and four. The text contains abundant numerical examples and a particularly helpful collection of exercises, many of which are small research problems requiring substantial study or outside reading. Some problems call for new proofs for theorems already covered or for inductive explorations and proofs of theorems found in later chapters.Ethan D. Bolke

Algebraic and stochastic coding theory
Kythe, Dave K
2012-01-01
Using a simple yet rigorous approach, Algebraic and Stochastic Coding Theory makes the subject of coding theory easy to understand for readers with a thorough knowledge of digital arithmetic, Boolean and modern algebra, and probability theory. It explains the underlying principles of coding theory and offers a clear, detailed description of each code. More advanced readers will appreciate its coverage of recent developments in coding theory and stochastic processes. After a brief review of coding history and Boolean algebra, the book introduces linear codes, including Hamming and Golay codes.
Division Algebras and Quantum Theory
Baez, John C
2011-01-01
Quantum theory may be formulated using Hilbert spaces over any of the three associative normed division algebras: the real numbers, the complex numbers and the quaternions. Indeed, these three choices appear naturally in a number of axiomatic approaches. However, there are internal problems with real or quaternionic quantum theory. Here we argue that these problems can be resolved if we treat real, complex and quaternionic quantum theory as part of a unified structure. Dyson called this structure the "three-fold way". It is perhaps easiest to see it in the study of irreducible unitary representations of groups on complex Hilbert spaces. These representations come in three kinds: those that are not isomorphic to their own dual (the truly "complex" representations), those that are self-dual thanks to a symmetric bilinear pairing (which are "real", in that they are the complexifications of representations on real Hilbert spaces), and those that are self-dual thanks to an antisymmetric bilinear pairing (which are...
Problems and proofs in numbers and algebra
Millman, Richard S; Kahn, Eric Brendan
2015-01-01
Designed to facilitate the transition from undergraduate calculus and differential equations to learning about proofs, this book helps students develop the rigorous mathematical reasoning needed for advanced courses in analysis, abstract algebra, and more. Students will focus on both how to prove theorems and solve problem sets in-depth; that is, where multiple steps are needed to prove or solve. This proof technique is developed by examining two specific content themes and their applications in-depth: number theory and algebra. This choice of content themes enables students to develop an understanding of proof technique in the context of topics with which they are already familiar, as well as reinforcing natural and conceptual understandings of mathematical methods and styles. The key to the text is its interesting and intriguing problems, exercises, theorems, and proofs, showing how students will transition from the usual, more routine calculus to abstraction while also learning how to “prove” or “sol...

Algebraic and structural automata theory
Mikolajczak, B
1991-01-01
Automata Theory is part of computability theory which covers problems in computer systems, software, activity of nervous systems (neural networks), and processes of live organisms development.The result of over ten years of research, this book presents work in the following areas of Automata Theory: automata morphisms, time-varying automata, automata realizations and relationships between automata and semigroups.Aimed at those working in discrete mathematics and computer science, parts of the book are suitable for use in graduate courses in computer science, electronics, telecommunications, and control engineering. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the basic concepts of algebra and graph theory.
Rational and algebraic approximations of algebraic numbers and their application

袁平之
1997-01-01
Effective rational and algebraic approximations of a large class of algebraic numbers are obtained by Thue-Siegel’s method.As an application of this result,it is proved that; if D>0 is not a square,and ε=x0 +y0 D denotes the fundamental solution of x2-Dy2=-1,then x2+1=Dy4 is solvable if and only if y0=A2 where A is an integer.Moreover,if ≥64,then x2+1=Dy4 has at most one positive integral solution (x,y).

In this series of lectures directed towards a mainly mathematically oriented audience I try to motivate the use of operator algebra methods in quantum field theory. Therefore a title as why mathematicians are/should be interested in algebraic quantum field theory would be equally fitting. besides a presentation of the framework and the main results of local quantum physics these notes may serve as a guide to frontier research problems in mathematical.

L∞-algebra models and higher Chern-Simons theories
Ritter, Patricia; Sämann, Christian
2016-10-01
We continue our study of zero-dimensional field theories in which the fields take values in a strong homotopy Lie algebra. In the first part, we review in detail how higher Chern-Simons theories arise in the AKSZ-formalism. These theories form a universal starting point for the construction of L∞-algebra models. We then show how to describe superconformal field theories and how to perform dimensional reductions in this context. In the second part, we demonstrate that Nambu-Poisson and multisymplectic manifolds are closely related via their Heisenberg algebras. As a byproduct of our discussion, we find central Lie p-algebra extensions of 𝔰𝔬(p + 2). Finally, we study a number of L∞-algebra models which are physically interesting and which exhibit quantized multisymplectic manifolds as vacuum solutions.
C*-algebras and operator theory
Murphy, Gerald J

2011-01-01
This volume is an introductory textbook to K-theory, both algebraic and topological, and to various current research topics within the field, including Kasparov's bivariant K-theory, the Baum-Connes conjecture, the comparison between algebraic and topological K-theory of topological algebras, the K-theory of schemes, and the theory of dg-categories.
Ternary numbers and algebras. Reflexive numbers and Berger graphs
Dubrovskiy, A
2007-01-01
The Calabi-Yau spaces with SU(n) holonomy can be studied by the algebraic way through the integer lattice where one can construct the Newton reflexive polyhedra or the Berger graphs. Our conjecture is that the Berger graphs can be directly related with the $n$-ary algebras. To find such algebras we study the n-ary generalization of the well-known binary norm division algebras, ${\\mathbb R}$, ${\\mathbb C}$, ${\\mathbb H}$, ${\\mathbb O}$, which helped to discover the most important "minimal" binary simple Lie groups, U(1), SU(2) and G(2). As the most important example, we consider the case $n=3$, which gives the ternary generalization of quaternions and octonions, $3^n$, $n=2,3$, respectively. The ternary generalization of quaternions is directly related to the new ternary algebra and group which are related to the natural extensions of the binary $su(3)$ algebra and SU(3) group. Using this ternary algebra we found the solution for the Berger graph: a tetrahedron.
Mixed motives and algebraic K-theory
Jannsen, Uwe
1990-01-01
The relations that could or should exist between algebraic cycles, algebraic K-theory, and the cohomology of - possibly singular - varieties, are the topic of investigation of this book. The author proceeds in an axiomatic way, combining the concepts of twisted Poincaré duality theories, weights, and tensor categories. One thus arrives at generalizations to arbitrary varieties of the Hodge and Tate conjectures to explicit conjectures on l-adic Chern characters for global fields and to certain counterexamples for more general fields. It is to be hoped that these relations ions will in due course be explained by a suitable tensor category of mixed motives. An approximation to this is constructed in the setting of absolute Hodge cycles, by extending this theory to arbitrary varieties. The book can serve both as a guide for the researcher, and as an introduction to these ideas for the non-expert, provided (s)he knows or is willing to learn about K-theory and the standard cohomology theories of algebraic varietie...
Inverse Determinant Sums and Connections Between Fading Channel Information Theory and Algebra
Vehkalahti, Roope
2011-01-01
Since the invention of space-time coding numerous algebraic methods have been applied to code design. In particular algebraic number theory and central simple algebras have been at the forefront of the research. In the first part of the paper we will push this direction further and show how the error probability of algebraic codes is tied to some central aspects of algebraic number theory and central simple algebras. In particular we prove how the error probability of several algebraic codes is tied to the corresponding zeta functions and unit groups. In the second part of this paper we turn to study what information theory can say about algebra. We will first derive some corollaries from the diversity-multiplexing gain tradeoff (DMT) Zheng and Tse and later show how these results can be used to analyze the unit group of orders of certain division algebras.
Algebraic cobordism theory attached to algebraic equivalence
Krishna, Amalendu
2012-01-01
After the algebraic cobordism theory of Levine-Morel, we develop a theory of algebraic cobordism modulo algebraic equivalence. We prove that this theory can reproduce Chow groups modulo algebraic equivalence and the zero-th semi-topological K-groups. We also show that with finite coefficients, this theory agrees with the algebraic cobordism theory. We compute our cobordism theory for some low dimensional or special types of varieties. The results on infinite generation of some Griffiths groups by Clemens and on smash-nilpotence by Voevodsky and Voisin are also lifted and reinterpreted in terms of this cobordism theory.
Algebraic Theories and (Infinity,1)-Categories
Cranch, James
2010-01-01
We adapt the classical framework of algebraic theories to work in the setting of (infinity,1)-categories developed by Joyal and Lurie. This gives a suitable approach for describing highly structured objects from homotopy theory. A central example, treated at length, is the theory of E_infinity spaces: this has a tidy combinatorial description in terms of span diagrams of finite sets. We introduce a theory of distributive laws, allowing us to describe objects with two distributing E_infinity stuctures. From this we produce a theory of E_infinity ring spaces. We also study grouplike objects, and produce theories modelling infinite loop spaces (or connective spectra), and infinite loop spaces with coherent multiplicative structure (or connective ring spectra). We use this to construct the units of a grouplike E_infinity ring space in a natural manner. Lastly we provide a speculative pleasant description of the K-theory of monoidal quasicategories and quasicategories with ring-like structures.
A Workshop on Algebraic Design Theory and Hadamard Matrices
2015-01-01
This volume develops the depth and breadth of the mathematics underlying the construction and analysis of Hadamard matrices and their use in the construction of combinatorial designs. At the same time, it pursues current research in their numerous applications in security and cryptography, quantum information, and communications. Bridges among diverse mathematical threads and extensive applications make this an invaluable source for understanding both the current state of the art and future directions. The existence of Hadamard matrices remains one of the most challenging open questions in combinatorics. Substantial progress on their existence has resulted from advances in algebraic design theory using deep connections with linear algebra, abstract algebra, finite geometry, number theory, and combinatorics. Hadamard matrices arise in a very diverse set of applications. Starting with applications in experimental design theory and the theory of error-correcting codes, they have found unexpected and important ap...
Introduction to algebraic independence theory
Philippon, Patrice
2001-01-01
In the last five years there has been very significant progress in the development of transcendence theory. A new approach to the arithmetic properties of values of modular forms and theta-functions was found. The solution of the Mahler-Manin problem on values of modular function j(tau) and algebraic independence of numbers pi and e^(pi) are most impressive results of this breakthrough. The book presents these and other results on algebraic independence of numbers and further, a detailed exposition of methods created in last the 25 years, during which commutative algebra and algebraic geometry exerted strong catalytic influence on the development of the subject.
Rigidification of algebras over essentially algebraic theories
Rosicky, J
2012-01-01
Badzioch and Bergner proved a rigidification theorem saying that each homotopy simplicial algebra is weakly equivalent to a simplicial algebra. The question is whether this result can be extended from algebraic theories to finite limit theories and from simplicial sets to more general monoidal model categories. We will present some answers to this question.
Andrews, George E

Although mathematics majors are usually conversant with number theory by the time they have completed a course in abstract algebra, other undergraduates, especially those in education and the liberal arts, often need a more basic introduction to the topic.In this book the author solves the problem of maintaining the interest of students at both levels by offering a combinatorial approach to elementary number theory. In studying number theory from such a perspective, mathematics majors are spared repetition and provided with new insights, while other students benefit from the consequent simpl
Dual number coefficient octonion algebra, field equations and conservation laws
Chanyal, B. C.; Chanyal, S. K.
2016-08-01
Starting with octonion algebra, we develop the dual number coefficient octonion (DNCO) algebra having sixteen components. DNCO forms of generalized potential, field and current equations are discussed in consistent manner. We have made an attempt to write the DNCO form of generalized Dirac-Maxwell's equations in presence of electric and magnetic charges (dyons). Accordingly, we demonstrate the work-energy theorem of classical mechanics reproducing the continuity equation for dyons in terms of DNCO algebra. Further, we discuss the DNCO form of linear momentum conservation law for dyons.

Homology Theory on Algebraic Varieties, Volume 6 deals with the principles of homology theory in algebraic geometry and includes the main theorems first formulated by Lefschetz, one of which is interpreted in terms of relative homology and another concerns the Poincaré formula. The actual details of the proofs of these theorems are introduced by geometrical descriptions, sometimes aided with diagrams. This book is comprised of eight chapters and begins with a discussion on linear sections of an algebraic variety, with emphasis on the fibring of a variety defined over the complex numbers. The n

Noncommuting Electric Fields and Algebraic Consistency in Noncommutative Gauge theories
Banerjee, R
2003-01-01
We show that noncommuting electric fields occur naturally in noncommutative gauge theories. Using this noncommutativity, which is field dependent, and a hamiltonian generalisation of the Seiberg-Witten Map, the algebraic consistency in the lagrangian and hamiltonian formulations of these theories, is established. The stability of the Poisson algebra, under this generalised map, is studied.

Endomorphisms and Modular Theory of 2-Graph C*-Algebras
Yang, Dilian
2009-01-01
In this paper, we initiate the study of endomorphisms and modular theory of the graph C*-algebras $\\O_{\\theta}$of a 2-graph $\\Fth$ on a single vertex. We prove that there is a semigroup isomorphism between unital endomorphisms of $\\O_{\\theta}$ and its unitary pairs with a \\textit{twisted property}. We characterize when endomorphisms preserve the fixed point algebra $\\fF$ of the gauge automorphisms and its canonical masa $\\fD$. Some other properties of endomorphisms are also investigated. As far as the modular theory of $\\O_{\\theta}$ is concerned, we show that the algebraic *-algebra generated by the generators of $\\O_{\\theta}$ with the inner product induced from a distinguished state $\\omega$ is a modular Hilbert algebra. Consequently, we obtain that the von Neumann algebra $\\pi(\\O_{\\theta})''$ generated by the GNS representation of $\\omega$ is an AFD factor of type III$_1$, provided $\\frac{\\ln m}{\\ln n}\
Lectures on Iwahori-Hecke Algebras and their Representation Theory
Cherednik, Ivan; Howe, Roger; Lusztig, George
2002-01-01
Two basic problems of representation theory are to classify irreducible representations and decompose representations occuring naturally in some other context. Algebras of Iwahori-Hecke type are one of the tools and were, probably, first considered in the context of representation theory of finite groups of Lie type. This volume consists of notes of the courses on Iwahori-Hecke algebras and their representation theory, given during the CIME summer school which took place in 1999 in Martina Franca, Italy.

Algebras of holomorphic functions and control theory
Sasane, Amol
2009-01-01
This accessible, undergraduate-level text illustrates the role of algebras of holomorphic functions in the solution of an important engineering problem: the stabilization of a linear control system. Its concise and self-contained treatment avoids the use of higher mathematics and forms a bridge to more advanced treatments. The treatment consists of two components: the algebraic framework, which serves as the abstract language for posing and solving the problem of stabilization; and the analysis component, which examines properties of specific rings of holomorphic functions. Elementary, self-co

Based on the distinction between the covariant and contravariant metric tensor components in the framework of the affine geometry approach and the s.c. "gravitational theories with covariant and contravariant connection and metrics", it is shown that a wide variety of third, fourth, fifth, seventh, tenth- degree algebraic equations exists in gravity theory. This is important in view of finding new solutions of the Einstein's equations, if they are treated as algebraic ones. Since the obtained...
Bollhöfer, Matthias; Kressner, Daniel; Mehl, Christian; Stykel, Tatjana
2015-01-01
This edited volume highlights the scientific contributions of Volker Mehrmann, a leading expert in the area of numerical (linear) algebra, matrix theory, differential-algebraic equations and control theory. These mathematical research areas are strongly related and often occur in the same real-world applications. The main areas where such applications emerge are computational engineering and sciences, but increasingly also social sciences and economics. This book also reflects some of Volker Mehrmann's major career stages. Starting out working in the areas of numerical linear algebra (his first full professorship at TU Chemnitz was in "Numerical Algebra," hence the title of the book) and matrix theory, Volker Mehrmann has made significant contributions to these areas ever since. The highlights of these are discussed in Parts I and II of the present book. Often the development of new algorithms in numerical linear algebra is motivated by problems in system and control theory. These and his later major work on ...
Derivations of the Moyal algebra and noncommutative gauge theories
Wallet, Jean-Christophe
2008-01-01
The differential calculus based on the derivations of an associative algebra underlies most of the noncommutative field theories considered so far. We review the essential properties of this framework and the main features of noncommutative connections in the case of non graded associative unital algebras with involution. We extend this framework to the case of ${\\mathbb{Z}}_2$-graded unital involutive algebras. We show, in the case of the Moyal algebra or some related ${\\mathbb{Z}}_2$-graded version of it, that the derivation based differential calculus is a suitable framework to construct Yang-Mills-Higgs type models on Moyal (or related) algebras, the covariant coordinates having in particular a natural interpretation as Higgs fields. We also exhibit, in one situation, a link between the renormalisable NC $\\varphi^4$-model with harmonic term and a gauge theory model. Some possible consequences of this are briefly discussed.

Historically, operator theory and representation theory both originated with the advent of quantum mechanics. The interplay between the subjects has been and still is active in a variety of areas.This volume focuses on representations of the universal enveloping algebra, covariant representations in general, and infinite-dimensional Lie algebras in particular. It also provides new applications of recent results on integrability of finite-dimensional Lie algebras. As a central theme, it is shown that a number of recent developments in operator algebras may be handled in a particularly e

Full Text Available This review examines some particular, but important and basic aspects of information: Information is related to questions and should provide at least partial answers. Information comes in pieces, and it should be possible to aggregate these pieces. Finally, it should be possible to extract that part of a piece of information which relates to a given question. Modeling these concepts leads to an algebraic theory of information. This theory centers around two different but closely related types of information algebras, each containing operations for aggregation or combination of information and for extracting information relevant to a given question. Generic constructions of instances of such algebras are presented. In particular, the close connection of information algebras to logic and domain theory will be exhibited.
Model Theory in Algebra, Analysis and Arithmetic
Dries, Lou; Macpherson, H Dugald; Pillay, Anand; Toffalori, Carlo; Wilkie, Alex J
2014-01-01
Presenting recent developments and applications, the book focuses on four main topics in current model theory: 1) the model theory of valued fields; 2) undecidability in arithmetic; 3) NIP theories; and 4) the model theory of real and complex exponentiation. Young researchers in model theory will particularly benefit from the book, as will more senior researchers in other branches of mathematics.
Developments and retrospectives in Lie theory algebraic methods
Penkov, Ivan; Wolf, Joseph
2014-01-01
This volume reviews and updates a prominent series of workshops in representation/Lie theory, and reflects the widespread influence of those workshops in such areas as harmonic analysis, representation theory, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and mathematical physics. Many of the contributors have had leading roles in both the classical and modern developments of Lie theory and its applications. This Work, entitled Developments and Retrospectives in Lie Theory, and comprising 26 articles, is organized in two volumes: Algebraic Methods and Geometric and Analytic Methods. This is the Algebraic Methods volume. The Lie Theory Workshop series, founded by Joe Wolf and Ivan Penkov and joined shortly thereafter by Geoff Mason, has been running for over two decades. Travel to the workshops has usually been supported by the NSF, and local universities have provided hospitality. The workshop talks have been seminal in describing new perspectives in the field covering broad areas of current research. Mos...
Time and the Algebraic Theory of Moments
Hiley, Basil J.
2013-01-01
We introduce the notion of an extended moment in time, the duron. This is a region of temporal ambiguity which arises naturally in the nature of process which we take to be basic. We introduce an algebra of process and show how it is related to, but different from, the monoidal category introduced by Abramsky and Coecke. By considering the limit as the duration of the moment approaches the infinitesimal, we obtain a pair of dynamical equations, one expressed in terms of a commutator and the o...
Algebraic and combinatorial Brill-Noether theory
Caporaso, Lucia
2011-01-01
The interplay between algebro-geometric and combinatorial Brill-Noether theory is studied. The Brill-Noether variety of a graph shown to be non-empty if the Brill-Noether number is non-negative, as a consequence of the analogous fact for smooth projective curves. Similarly, the existence of a graph for which the Brill-Noether variety is empty implies the emptiness of the corresponding Brill-Noether variety for a general curve. The main tool is a refinement of Baker's Specialization Lemma.

Capacity theory on algebraic curves
Rumely, Robert S
1989-01-01
Capacity is a measure of size for sets, with diverse applications in potential theory, probability and number theory. This book lays foundations for a theory of capacity for adelic sets on algebraic curves. Its main result is an arithmetic one, a generalization of a theorem of Fekete and Szegö which gives a sharp existence/finiteness criterion for algebraic points whose conjugates lie near a specified set on a curve. The book brings out a deep connection between the classical Green's functions of analysis and Néron's local height pairings; it also points to an interpretation of capacity as a kind of intersection index in the framework of Arakelov Theory. It is a research monograph and will primarily be of interest to number theorists and algebraic geometers; because of applications of the theory, it may also be of interest to logicians. The theory presented generalizes one due to David Cantor for the projective line. As with most adelic theories, it has a local and a global part. Let /K be a smooth, complet...
The $K$-groups and the index theory of certain comparison $C^*$-algebras
Monthubert, Bertrand
2010-01-01
We compute the $K$-theory of comparison $C^*$-algebra associated to a manifold with corners. These comparison algebras are an example of the abstract pseudodifferential algebras introduced by Connes and Moscovici \\cite{M3}. Our calculation is obtained by showing that the comparison algebras are a homomorphic image of a groupoid $C^*$-algebra. We then prove an index theorem with values in the $K$-theory groups of the comparison algebra.
Bicomplex holomorphic functions the algebra, geometry and analysis of bicomplex numbers
Luna-Elizarrarás, M Elena; Struppa, Daniele C; Vajiac, Adrian
2015-01-01
The purpose of this book is to develop the foundations of the theory of holomorphicity on the ring of bicomplex numbers. Accordingly, the main focus is on expressing the similarities with, and differences from, the classical theory of one complex variable. The result is an elementary yet comprehensive introduction to the algebra, geometry and analysis of bicomplex numbers. Around the middle of the nineteenth century, several mathematicians (the best known being Sir William Hamilton and Arthur Cayley) became interested in studying number systems that extended the field of complex numbers. Hamilton famously introduced the quaternions, a skew field in real-dimension four, while almost simultaneously James Cockle introduced a commutative four-dimensional real algebra, which was rediscovered in 1892 by Corrado Segre, who referred to his elements as bicomplex numbers. The advantages of commutativity were accompanied by the introduction of zero divisors, something that for a while dampened interest in this subject. ...
Valued Graphs and the Representation Theory of Lie Algebras

Joel Lemay
2012-07-01
Full Text Available Quivers (directed graphs, species (a generalization of quivers and their representations play a key role in many areas of mathematics including combinatorics, geometry, and algebra. Their importance is especially apparent in their applications to the representation theory of associative algebras, Lie algebras, and quantum groups. In this paper, we discuss the most important results in the representation theory of species, such as Dlab and Ringel’s extension of Gabriel’s theorem, which classifies all species of finite and tame representation type. We also explain the link between species and K-species (where K is a field. Namely, we show that the category of K -species can be viewed as a subcategory of the category of species. Furthermore, we prove two results about the structure of the tensor ring of a species containing no oriented cycles. Specifically, we prove that two such species have isomorphic tensor rings if and only if they are isomorphic as “crushed” species, and we show that if K is a perfect field, then the tensor algebra of a K -species tensored with the algebraic closure of K is isomorphic to, or Morita equivalent to, the path algebra of a quiver.
Linear {GLP}-algebras and their elementary theories
Pakhomov, F. N.
2016-12-01
The polymodal provability logic {GLP} was introduced by Japaridze in 1986. It is the provability logic of certain chains of provability predicates of increasing strength. Every polymodal logic corresponds to a variety of polymodal algebras. Beklemishev and Visser asked whether the elementary theory of the free {GLP}-algebra generated by the constants \\mathbf{0}, \\mathbf{1} is decidable [1]. For every positive integer n we solve the corresponding question for the logics {GLP}_n that are the fragments of {GLP} with n modalities. We prove that the elementary theory of the free {GLP}_n-algebra generated by the constants \\mathbf{0}, \\mathbf{1} is decidable for all n. We introduce the notion of a linear {GLP}_n-algebra and prove that all free {GLP}_n-algebras generated by the constants \\mathbf{0}, \\mathbf{1} are linear. We also consider the more general case of the logics {GLP}_α whose modalities are indexed by the elements of a linearly ordered set α: we define the notion of a linear algebra and prove the latter result in this case.

Dian Xuan GONG; Ren Hong WANG
2012-01-01
Based on the discussion of the number of roots of univariate spline and the common zero points of two piecewise algebraic curves,a lower upbound of Bezout number of two piecewise algebraic curves on any given non-obtuse-angled triangulation is found.Bezout number of two piecewise algebraic curves on two different partitions is also discussed in this paper.
Classification of hypergeometric identities for pi and other logarithms of algebraic numbers.
Chudnovsky, D V; Chudnovsky, G V
1998-03-17
This paper provides transcendental and algebraic framework for the classification of identities expressing pi and other logarithms of algebraic numbers as rapidly convergent generalized hypergeometric series in rational parameters. Algebraic and arithmetic relations between values of p+1Fp hypergeometric functions and their values are analyzed. The existing identities are explained, and new exhaustive classes of new ones are presented.
Algebraic formulation of quantum theory, particle identity and entanglement
Govindarajan, T. R.
2016-08-01
Quantum theory as formulated in conventional framework using statevectors in Hilbert spaces misses the statistical nature of the underlying quantum physics. Formulation using operators 𝒞∗ algebra and density matrices appropriately captures this feature in addition leading to the correct formulation of particle identity. In this framework, Hilbert space is an emergent concept. Problems related to anomalies and quantum epistemology are discussed.

This excellent textbook introduces the basics of number theory, incorporating the language of abstract algebra. A knowledge of such algebraic concepts as group, ring, field, and domain is not assumed, however; all terms are defined and examples are given - making the book self-contained in this respect.The author begins with an introductory chapter on number theory and its early history. Subsequent chapters deal with unique factorization and the GCD, quadratic residues, number-theoretic functions and the distribution of primes, sums of squares, quadratic equations and quadratic fields, diopha

Noncommuting electric fields and algebraic consistency in noncommutative gauge theories
Banerjee, Rabin
2003-05-01
We show that noncommuting electric fields occur naturally in θ-expanded noncommutative gauge theories. Using this noncommutativity, which is field dependent, and a Hamiltonian generalization of the Seiberg-Witten map, the algebraic consistency in the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of these theories is established. A comparison of results in different descriptions shows that this generalized map acts as a canonical transformation in the physical subspace only. Finally, we apply the Hamiltonian formulation to derive the gauge symmetries of the action.
Many rational points coding theory and algebraic geometry
Hurt, Norman E
2003-01-01
This monograph presents a comprehensive treatment of recent results on algebraic geometry as they apply to coding theory and cryptography, with the goal the study of algebraic curves and varieties with many rational points. They book surveys recent developments on abelian varieties, in particular the classification of abelian surfaces, hyperelliptic curves, modular towers, Kloosterman curves and codes, Shimura curves and modular jacobian surfaces. Applications of abelian varieties to cryptography are presented including a discussion of hyperelliptic curve cryptosystems. The inter-relationship of codes and curves is developed building on Goppa's results on algebraic-geometry cods. The volume provides a source book of examples with relationships to advanced topics regarding Sato-Tate conjectures, Eichler-Selberg trace formula, Katz-Sarnak conjectures and Hecke operators.
Yang-Baxter algebras, integrable theories and quantum groups
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Vega, H.J. de (Paris-6 Univ., 75 (France). Lab. de Physique Theorique et Hautes Energies)
1990-12-01
The Yang-Baxter algebras (YBA) are introduced in a general framework stressing their power to exactly solve the lattice models associated to them. The algebraic Bethe Ansatz is developed as an eigenvector construction based on the YBA. The six-vertex model solution is given explicitely. It is explained how these lattice models yield both solvable massive QFT and conformal models in appropriated scaling (continuous) limits within the lattice light-cone approach. This approach permit to define and solve rigorously massive QFT as an appropriate continuum limit of gapless vertex models. The deep links between the YBA and Lie algebras are analyzed including the quantum groups that underly the trigonometric/hyperbolic YBA. Braid and quantum groups are derived from trigonometric/hyperbolic YBA in the limit of infinite spectral parameter. To conclude, some recent developments in the domain of integrable theories are summarized. (orig.).
Gravity, Gauge Theories and Geometric Algebra
Lasenby, A; Gull, S F; Lasenby, Anthony; Doran, Chris; Gull, Stephen
1998-01-01
A new gauge theory of gravity is presented. The theory is constructed in a flat background spacetime and employs gauge fields to ensure that all relations between physical quantities are independent of the positions and orientations of the matter fields. In this manner all properties of the background spacetime are removed from physics, and what remains are a set of `intrinsic' relations between physical fields. The properties of the gravitational gauge fields are derived from both classical and quantum viewpoints. Field equations are then derived from an action principle, and consistency with the minimal coupling procedure selects an action that is unique up to the possible inclusion of a cosmological constant. This in turn singles out a unique form of spin-torsion interaction. A new method for solving the field equations is outlined and applied to the case of a time-dependent, spherically-symmetric perfect fluid. A gauge is found which reduces the physics to a set of essentially Newtonian equations. These e...
Algebraic Theories over Nominal Sets
Kurz, Alexander; Velebil, Jiří
2010-01-01
We investigate the foundations of a theory of algebraic data types with variable binding inside classical universal algebra. In the first part, a category-theoretic study of monads over the nominal sets of Gabbay and Pitts leads us to introduce new notions of finitary based monads and uniform monads. In a second part we spell out these notions in the language of universal algebra, show how to recover the logics of Gabbay-Mathijssen and Clouston-Pitts, and apply classical results from universal algebra.
On two-primary algebraic K-theory of quadratic number rings with focus on K_2

We give explicit formulas for the 2-rank of the algebraic K-groups of quadratic number rings. A 4-rank formula for K2 of quadratic number rings given in [1] provides further information about the actual group structure. The K2 claculations are based on 2- and 4-rank formulas for Picard groups of qua

The primary goal of this paper is to present a unified way to transform the syntax of a logic system into certain initial algebraic structure so that it can be studied algebraically. The algebraic structures which one may choose for this purpose are various clones over a full subcategory of a category. We show that the syntax of equational logic, lambda calculus and first order logic can be represented as clones or right algebras of clones over the set of positive integers. The semantics is then represented by structures derived from left algebras of these clones.

Interactions Between Representation Ttheory, Algebraic Topology and Commutative Algebra
Pitsch, Wolfgang; Zarzuela, Santiago
2016-01-01
This book includes 33 expanded abstracts of selected talks given at the two workshops "Homological Bonds Between Commutative Algebra and Representation Theory" and "Brave New Algebra: Opening Perspectives," and the conference "Opening Perspectives in Algebra, Representations, and Topology," held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) in Barcelona between January and June 2015. These activities were part of the one-semester intensive research program "Interactions Between Representation Theory, Algebraic Topology and Commutative Algebra (IRTATCA)." Most of the abstracts present preliminary versions of not-yet published results and cover a large number of topics (including commutative and non commutative algebra, algebraic topology, singularity theory, triangulated categories, representation theory) overlapping with homological methods. This comprehensive book is a valuable resource for the community of researchers interested in homological algebra in a broad sense, and those curious to learn the latest dev...
On logical, algebraic, and probabilistic aspects of fuzzy set theory
Mesiar, Radko
2016-01-01
The book is a collection of contributions by leading experts, developed around traditional themes discussed at the annual Linz Seminars on Fuzzy Set Theory. The different chapters have been written by former PhD students, colleagues, co-authors and friends of Peter Klement, a leading researcher and the organizer of the Linz Seminars on Fuzzy Set Theory. The book also includes advanced findings on topics inspired by Klement’s research activities, concerning copulas, measures and integrals, as well as aggregation problems. Some of the chapters reflect personal views and controversial aspects of traditional topics, while others deal with deep mathematical theories, such as the algebraic and logical foundations of fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic. Originally thought as an homage to Peter Klement, the book also represents an advanced reference guide to the mathematical theories related to fuzzy logic and fuzzy set theory with the potential to stimulate important discussions on new research directions in the fiel...
Operator Algebras and Noncommutative Geometric Aspects in Conformal Field Theory
Longo, Roberto
2010-03-01
The Operator Algebraic approach to Conformal Field Theory has been particularly fruitful in recent years (leading for example to the classification of all local conformal nets on the circle with central charge c < 1, jointly with Y. Kawahigashi). On the other hand the Operator Algebraic viewpoint offers a natural perspective for a Noncommutative Geometric context within Conformal Field Theory. One basic point here is to uncover the relevant structures. In this talk I will explain some of the basic steps in this "Noncommutative Geometrization program" up to the recent construction of a spectral triple associated with certain Ramond representations of the Supersymmetric Virasoro net. So Alain Connes framework enters into play. This is a joint work with S. Carpi, Y. Kawahigashi, and R. Hillier.

Algebraic aspects of gauge theories
Zharinov, V. V.
2014-08-01
Gauge theories are primary tools in modern elementary particle physics. The generally recognized mathematical foundations of these theories are in differential geometry, namely, in the theory of connections in a principal fiber bundle. We propose another approach to the mathematical description of gauge theories based on a combination of algebraic and geometric methods.
Mathematics of the 19th century mathematical logic, algebra, number theory, probability theory
Yushkevich, A
1992-01-01
This multi-authored effort, Mathematics of the nineteenth century (to be fol lowed by Mathematics of the twentieth century), is a sequel to the History of mathematics fram antiquity to the early nineteenth century, published in three 1 volumes from 1970 to 1972. For reasons explained below, our discussion of twentieth-century mathematics ends with the 1930s. Our general objectives are identical with those stated in the preface to the three-volume edition, i. e. , we consider the development of mathematics not simply as the process of perfecting concepts and techniques for studying real-world spatial forms and quantitative relationships but as a social process as weIl. Mathematical structures, once established, are capable of a certain degree of autonomous development. In the final analysis, however, such immanent mathematical evolution is conditioned by practical activity and is either self-directed or, as is most often the case, is determined by the needs of society. Proceeding from this premise, we intend...

2012-01-01
Serge Lang was an iconic figure in mathematics, both for his own important work and for the indelible impact he left on the field of mathematics, on his students, and on his colleagues. Over the course of his career, Lang traversed a tremendous amount of mathematical ground. As he moved from subject to subject, he found analogies that led to important questions in such areas as number theory, arithmetic geometry, and the theory of negatively curved spaces. Lang's conjectures will keep many mathematicians occupied far into the future. In the spirit of Lang's vast contribution to mathematics, th
Amenability and vanishing of L^2-Betti numbers: an operator algebraic approach
Alekseev, Vadim
2011-01-01
We recast the Foelner condition in an operator algebraic setting and prove that it implies a certain dimension flatness property. Furthermore, it is proven that the Foelner condition generalizes the existing notions of amenability and that the enveloping von Neumann algebra arising from a Foelner algebra is automatically injective. As an application we show how our techniques unify the previously known results concerning vanishing of L^2-Betti numbers for amenable groups, groupoids and quantum groups and moreover provides a large class of new examples of algebras with vanishing L^2-Betti numbers.
Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras and two-dimensional topological field theories
Getzler, E
1994-01-01
Batalin-Vilkovisky algebras are a new type of algebraic structure on graded vector spaces, which first arose in the work of Batalin and Vilkovisky on gauge fixing in quantum field theory. In this article, we show that there is a natural structure of a Batalin-Vilkovisky algebra on the cohomology of a topological field theory in two dimensions. Lian and Zuckerman have constructed this Batalin-Vilkovisky structure, in the setting of topological chiral field theories, and shown that the structure is non-trivial in two-dimensional string theory. Our approach is to use algebraic topology, whereas their proofs have a more algebraic character.
On Elliptic Algebras and Large-n Supersymmetric Gauge Theories
Koroteev, Peter
2016-01-01
In this note we further develop the duality between supersymmetric gauge theories in various dimensions and elliptic integrable systems such as Ruijsenaars-Schneider model and periodic intermediate long wave hydrodynamics. These models arise in instanton counting problems and are described by certain elliptic algebras. We discuss the correspondence between the two types of models by employing the large-n limit of the dual gauge theory. In particular we provide non-Abelian generalization of our previous result on the intermediate long wave model.
Polylogarithm identities, cluster algebras and the N=4 supersymmetric theory
Vergu, C
2015-01-01
Scattering amplitudes in N = 4 super-Yang Mills theory can be computed to higher perturbative orders than in any other four-dimensional quantum field theory. The results are interesting transcendental functions. By a hidden symmetry (dual conformal symmetry) the arguments of these functions have a geometric interpretation in terms of configurations of points in CP^3 and they turn out to be cluster coordinates. We briefly introduce cluster algebras and discuss their Poisson structure and the Sklyanin bracket. Finally, we present a 40-term trilogarithm identity which was discovered by accident while studying the physical results.
Noncommutative spectral geometry and the deformed Hopf algebra structure of quantum field theory
Sakellariadou, Mairi; Stabile, Antonio; Vitiello, Giuseppe
2013-06-01
We report the results obtained in the study of Alain Connes noncommutative spectral geometry construction focusing on its essential ingredient of the algebra doubling. We show that such a two-sheeted structure is related with the gauge structure of the theory, its dissipative character and carries in itself the seeds of quantization. From the algebraic point of view, the algebra doubling process has the same structure of the deformed Hops algebra structure which characterizes quantum field theory.

To understand the development of mathematical cognition and to improve instructional practices, it is critical to identify early predictors of difficulty in learning complex mathematical topics such as algebra. Recent work has shown that performance with fractions on a number line estimation task predicts algebra performance, whereas performance with whole numbers on similar estimation tasks does not. We sought to distinguish more specific precursors to algebra by measuring multiple aspects of knowledge about rational numbers. Because fractions are the first numbers that are relational expressions to which students are exposed, we investigated how understanding the relational bipartite format (a/b) of fractions might connect to later algebra performance. We presented middle school students with a battery of tests designed to measure relational understanding of fractions, procedural knowledge of fractions, and placement of fractions, decimals, and whole numbers onto number lines as well as algebra performance. Multiple regression analyses revealed that the best predictors of algebra performance were measures of relational fraction knowledge and ability to place decimals (not fractions or whole numbers) onto number lines. These findings suggest that at least two specific components of knowledge about rational numbers--relational understanding (best captured by fractions) and grasp of unidimensional magnitude (best captured by decimals)--can be linked to early success with algebraic expressions.

We show that three-dimensional supergravity amplitudes can be obtained as double copies of either three-algebra super-Chern-Simons matter theory or two-algebra super-Yang-Mills theory when either theory is organized to display the color-kinematics duality. We prove that only helicity-conserving four-dimensional gravity amplitudes have nonvanishing descendants when reduced to three dimensions, implying the vanishing of odd-multiplicity S-matrix elements, in agreement with Chern-Simons matter theory. We explicitly verify the double-copy correspondence at four and six points for N = 12,10,8 supergravity theories and discuss its validity for all multiplicity.

Noncommutative o*(N) and usp*(2N) algebras and the corresponding gauge field theories
Bars, Itzhak; Vasilev, M
2001-01-01
The extension of the noncommutative u*(N) Lie algebra to noncommutative orthogonal and symplectic Lie algebras is studied. Using an anti-automorphism of the star-matrix algebra, we show that the u*(N) can consistently be restricted to o*(N) and usp*(N) algebras that have new mathematical structures. We give explicit fundamental matrix representations of these algebras, through which the formulation for the corresponding noncommutative gauge field theories are obtained. In addition, we present a D-brane configuration with an orientifold which realizes geometrically our algebraic construction, thus embedding the new noncommutative gauge theories in superstring theory in the presence of a constant background magnetic field. Some algebraic generalizations that may have applications in other areas of physics are also discussed.

Field Theories on Canonical and Lie-Algebra Noncommutative Spacetimes

2002-01-01
Field theories on canonical noncommutative spacetimes, which are being studied also in connection with string theory, and on $\\kappa$-Minkowski spacetime, which is a popular example of Lie-algebra noncommutative spacetime, can be naturally constructed by introducing a suitable generating functional for Green functions in energy-momentum space. Direct reference to a star product is not necessary. It is sufficient to make use of the simple properties that the Fourier transform preserves in these spacetimes and establish the rules for products of wave exponentials that are dictated by the non-commutativity of the coordinates. The approach also provides an elementary description of "planar" and "non-planar" Feynman diagrams. We also comment on the rich phenomenology emerging from the analysis of these theories.

The respondent of the study were 337 students from eight public secondary school in Alkoura district by using stratified random sampling. The study comprised of 179 (53%) males and 158 (47%) females students. The mathematics test comprises of 30 items which has eight items for numbers, 14 items for algebra and eight items for geometry. Based on difficulties among male and female students, the findings showed that item 4 (fractions - 0.34) was most difficult for male students and item 6 (square roots - 0.39) for females in numbers. For the algebra, item 11 (inequality - 0.23) was most difficult for male students and item 6 (algebraic expressions - 0.35) for female students. In geometry, item 3 (reflection - 0.34) was most difficult for male students and item 8 (volume - 0.33) for female students. Based on gender differences, female students showed higher achievement in numbers and algebra compare to male students. On the other hand, there was no differences between male and female students achievement in geometry test. This study suggest that teachers need to give more attention on numbers and algebra when teaching mathematics.
Higher algebraic K-theory an overview
Lluis-Puebla, Emilio; Gillet, Henri; Soulé, Christophe; Snaith, Victor
1992-01-01
This book is a general introduction to Higher Algebraic K-groups of rings and algebraic varieties, which were first defined by Quillen at the beginning of the 70's. These K-groups happen to be useful in many different fields, including topology, algebraic geometry, algebra and number theory. The goal of this volume is to provide graduate students, teachers and researchers with basic definitions, concepts and results, and to give a sampling of current directions of research. Written by five specialists of different parts of the subject, each set of lectures reflects the particular perspective ofits author. As such, this volume can serve as a primer (if not as a technical basic textbook) for mathematicians from many different fields of interest.
Cryptography and computational number theory
Shparlinski, Igor; Wang, Huaxiong; Xing, Chaoping; Workshop on Cryptography and Computational Number Theory, CCNT'99
2001-01-01
This volume contains the refereed proceedings of the Workshop on Cryptography and Computational Number Theory, CCNT'99, which has been held in Singapore during the week of November 22-26, 1999. The workshop was organized by the Centre for Systems Security of the Na tional University of Singapore. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support from the Singapore National Science and Technology Board under the grant num ber RP960668/M. The idea for this workshop grew out of the recognition of the recent, rapid development in various areas of cryptography and computational number the ory. The event followed the concept of the research programs at such well-known research institutions as the Newton Institute (UK), Oberwolfach and Dagstuhl (Germany), and Luminy (France). Accordingly, there were only invited lectures at the workshop with plenty of time for informal discussions. It was hoped and successfully achieved that the meeting would encourage and stimulate further research in information and computer s...
Dudley, Underwood
2008-01-01
Ideal for a first course in number theory, this lively, engaging text requires only a familiarity with elementary algebra and the properties of real numbers. Author Underwood Dudley, who has written a series of popular mathematics books, maintains that the best way to learn mathematics is by solving problems. In keeping with this philosophy, the text includes nearly 1,000 exercises and problems-some computational and some classical, many original, and some with complete solutions. The opening chapters offer sound explanations of the basics of elementary number theory and develop the fundamenta
A systematic investigation of the link between rational number processing and algebra ability.
Hurst, Michelle; Cordes, Sara
2017-02-27
Recent research suggests that fraction understanding is predictive of algebra ability; however, the relative contributions of various aspects of rational number knowledge are unclear. Furthermore, whether this relationship is notation-dependent or rather relies upon a general understanding of rational numbers (independent of notation) is an open question. In this study, college students completed a rational number magnitude task, procedural arithmetic tasks in fraction and decimal notation, and an algebra assessment. Using these tasks, we measured three different aspects of rational number ability in both fraction and decimal notation: (1) acuity of underlying magnitude representations, (2) fluency with which symbols are mapped to the underlying magnitudes, and (3) fluency with arithmetic procedures. Analyses reveal that when looking at the measures of magnitude understanding, the relationship between adults' rational number magnitude performance and algebra ability is dependent upon notation. However, once performance on arithmetic measures is included in the relationship, individual measures of magnitude understanding are no longer unique predictors of algebra performance. Furthermore, when including all measures simultaneously, results revealed that arithmetic fluency in both fraction and decimal notation each uniquely predicted algebra ability. Findings are the first to demonstrate a relationship between rational number understanding and algebra ability in adults while providing a clearer picture of the nature of this relationship.
Algebra versus analysis in statistical mechanics and quantum field theory
McCoy, Barry M.
2000-01-01
I contrast the profound differences in the ways in which algebra and analysis are used in physics. In particular I discuss the fascinating phenomenon that theoretical physicists devote almost all their efforts to algebraic problems even though all problems of experimental interest require some methods of analysis.
Octonionic M-theory and /D=11 generalized conformal and superconformal algebras
Lukierski, Jerzy; Toppan, Francesco
2003-08-01
Following [Phys. Lett. B 539 (2002) 266] we further apply the octonionic structure to supersymmetric D=11 M-theory. We consider the octonionic 2n+1×2n+1 Dirac matrices describing the sequence of Clifford algebras with signatures (9+n,n) (n=0,1,2,…) and derive the identities following from the octonionic multiplication table. The case n=1 (4×4 octonion-valued matrices) is used for the description of the D=11 octonionic M-superalgebra with 52 real bosonic charges; the n=2 case (8×8 octonion-valued matrices) for the D=11 conformal M-algebra with 232 real bosonic charges. The octonionic structure is described explicitly for n=1 by the relations between the 528 Abelian O(10,1) tensorial charges Zμ, Zμν, Zμ…μ5 of the M-superalgebra. For n=2 we obtain 2080 real non-Abelian bosonic tensorial charges Zμν, Zμ1μ2μ3, Zμ1…μ6 which, suitably constrained describe the generalized D=11 octonionic conformal algebra. Further, we consider the supersymmetric extension of this octonionic conformal algebra which can be described as D=11 octonionic superconformal algebra with a total number of 64 real fermionic and 239 real bosonic generators.
The Clifford algebra of physical space and Dirac theory
Vaz, Jayme, Jr.
2016-09-01
The claim found in many textbooks that the Dirac equation cannot be written solely in terms of Pauli matrices is shown to not be completely true. It is only true as long as the term β \\psi in the usual Dirac factorization of the Klein-Gordon equation is assumed to be the product of a square matrix β and a column matrix ψ. In this paper we show that there is another possibility besides this matrix product, in fact a possibility involving a matrix operation, and show that it leads to another possible expression for the Dirac equation. We show that, behind this other possible factorization is the formalism of the Clifford algebra of physical space. We exploit this fact, and discuss several different aspects of Dirac theory using this formalism. In particular, we show that there are four different possible sets of definitions for the parity, time reversal, and charge conjugation operations for the Dirac equation.

Splitting full matrix algebras over algebraic number fields
Ivanyos, Gábor; Schicho, Joseph
2011-01-01
Let K be an algebraic number field of degree d and discriminant D over Q. Let A be an associative algebra over K given by structure constants such that A is siomorphic to the algebra M_n(K) of n by n matrices over K for some positive integer n. Suppose that d, n and D are bounded. Then an isomorphism of A with M_n(K) can be constructed by a polynomial time ff-algorithm. (An ff-algorithm is a deterministic procedure which is allowed to call oracles for factoring integers and factoring univariate polynomials over finite fields.) As a consequence, we obtain a polynomial time ff-algorithm to compute isomorphisms of central simple algebras of bounded degree over K.
Evolution algebras and their applications
Tian, Jianjun Paul
2008-01-01
Behind genetics and Markov chains, there is an intrinsic algebraic structure. It is defined as a type of new algebra: as evolution algebra. This concept lies between algebras and dynamical systems. Algebraically, evolution algebras are non-associative Banach algebras; dynamically, they represent discrete dynamical systems. Evolution algebras have many connections with other mathematical fields including graph theory, group theory, stochastic processes, dynamical systems, knot theory, 3-manifolds, and the study of the Ihara-Selberg zeta function. In this volume the foundation of evolution algebra theory and applications in non-Mendelian genetics and Markov chains is developed, with pointers to some further research topics.
Schaum's outline of theory and problems of linear algebra
Lipschutz, Seymour
2001-01-01
This third edition of the successful outline in linear algebra--which sold more than 400,000 copies in its past two editions--has been thoroughly updated to increase its applicability to the fields in which linear algebra is now essential: computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, and quantitative analysis. Revised coverage includes new problems relevant to computer science and a revised chapter on linear equations.
Free differential algebras their use in field theory and dual formulation
Castellani, L; Castellani, Leonardo; Perotto, Alberto
1995-01-01
The gauging of free differential algebras (FDA's) produces gauge field theories containing antisymmetric tensors. The FDA's extend the Cartan-Maurer equations of ordinary Lie algebras by incorporating p-form potentials (p > 1). We study here the algebra of FDA transformations. To every p-form in the FDA we associate an extended Lie derivative \\ell generating a corresponding ``gauge" transformation. The field theory based on the FDA is invariant under these new transformations. This gives geometrical meaning to the antisymmetric tensors. The algebra of Lie derivatives is shown to close and provides the dual formulation of FDA's.
Algebraic equations an introduction to the theories of Lagrange and Galois
Dehn, Edgar
2004-01-01
Meticulous and complete, this presentation of Galois' theory of algebraic equations is geared toward upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. The theories of both Lagrange and Galois are developed in logical rather than historical form. And they are given a more thorough exposition than is customary. For this reason, and also because the author concentrates on concrete applications of algebraic theory, Algebraic Equations is an excellent supplementary text, offering students a concrete introduction to the abstract principles of Galois theory. Of further value are the many numerical ex
Homotopy Theory of Probability Spaces I: Classical independence and homotopy Lie algebras
Park, Jae-Suk
2015-01-01
This is the first installment of a series of papers whose aim is to lay a foundation for homotopy probability theory by establishing its basic principles and practices. The notion of a homotopy probability space is an enrichment of the notion of an algebraic probability space with ideas from algebraic homotopy theory. This enrichment uses a characterization of the laws of random variables in a probability space in terms of symmetries of the expectation. The laws of random variables are reinterpreted as invariants of the homotopy types of infinity morphisms between certain homotopy algebras. The relevant category of homotopy algebras is determined by the appropriate notion of independence for the underlying probability theory. This theory will be both a natural generalization and an effective computational tool for the study of classical algebraic probability spaces, while keeping the same central limit. This article is focused on the commutative case, where the laws of random variables are also described in t...
Abstract algebra structure and application
Finston, David R
2014-01-01
This text seeks to generate interest in abstract algebra by introducing each new structure and topic via a real-world application. The down-to-earth presentation is accessible to a readership with no prior knowledge of abstract algebra. Students are led to algebraic concepts and questions in a natural way through their everyday experiences. Applications include: Identification numbers and modular arithmetic (linear) error-correcting codes, including cyclic codes ruler and compass constructions cryptography symmetry of patterns in the real plane Abstract Algebra: Structure and Application is suitable as a text for a first course on abstract algebra whose main purpose is to generate interest in the subject, or as a supplementary text for more advanced courses. The material paves the way to subsequent courses that further develop the theory of abstract algebra and will appeal to students of mathematics, mathematics education, computer science, and engineering interested in applications of algebraic concepts.
Clifford Algebras and Their Decomposition into Conjugate Fermionic Heisenberg Algebras
Catto, Sultan; Gürcan, Yasemin; Khalfan, Amish; Kurt, Levent; Kato La, V.
2016-10-01
We discuss a construction scheme for Clifford numbers of arbitrary dimension. The scheme is based upon performing direct products of the Pauli spin and identity matrices. Conjugate fermionic algebras can then be formed by considering linear combinations of the Clifford numbers and the Hermitian conjugates of such combinations. Fermionic algebras are important in investigating systems that follow Fermi-Dirac statistics. We will further comment on the applications of Clifford algebras to Fueter analyticity, twistors, color algebras, M-theory and Leech lattice as well as unification of ancient and modern geometries through them.

Conferences on Combinatorial and Additive Number Theory
2014-01-01
This proceedings volume is based on papers presented at the Workshops on Combinatorial and Additive Number Theory (CANT), which were held at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York in 2011 and 2012. The goal of the workshops is to survey recent progress in combinatorial number theory and related parts of mathematics. The workshop attracts researchers and students who discuss the state-of-the-art, open problems, and future challenges in number theory.
Factorization algebras in quantum field theory
Costello, Kevin
2017-01-01
Factorization algebras are local-to-global objects that play a role in classical and quantum field theory which is similar to the role of sheaves in geometry: they conveniently organize complicated information. Their local structure encompasses examples like associative and vertex algebras; in these examples, their global structure encompasses Hochschild homology and conformal blocks. In this first volume, the authors develop the theory of factorization algebras in depth, but with a focus upon examples exhibiting their use in field theory, such as the recovery of a vertex algebra from a chiral conformal field theory and a quantum group from Abelian Chern-Simons theory. Expositions of the relevant background in homological algebra, sheaves and functional analysis are also included, thus making this book ideal for researchers and graduates working at the interface between mathematics and physics.
Quantum field theory on toroidal topology: Algebraic structure and applications
Khanna, F. C.; Malbouisson, A. P. C.; Malbouisson, J. M. C.; Santana, A. E.
2014-05-01
The development of quantum theory on a torus has a long history, and can be traced back to the 1920s, with the attempts by Nordström, Kaluza and Klein to define a fourth spatial dimension with a finite size, being curved in the form of a torus, such that Einstein and Maxwell equations would be unified. Many developments were carried out considering cosmological problems in association with particle physics, leading to methods that are useful for areas of physics, in which size effects play an important role. This interest in finite size effect systems has been increasing rapidly over the last decades, due principally to experimental improvements. In this review, the foundations of compactified quantum field theory on a torus are presented in a unified way, in order to consider applications in particle and condensed matter physics. The theory on a torus ΓDd=(S1)d×RD-d is developed from a Lie-group representation and c*c*-algebra formalisms. As a first application, the quantum field theory at finite temperature, in its real- and imaginary-time versions, is addressed by focusing on its topological structure, the torus Γ41. The toroidal quantum-field theory provides the basis for a consistent approach of spontaneous symmetry breaking driven by both temperature and spatial boundaries. Then the superconductivity in films, wires and grains are analyzed, leading to some results that are comparable with experiments. The Casimir effect is studied taking the electromagnetic and Dirac fields on a torus. In this case, the method of analysis is based on a generalized Bogoliubov transformation, that separates the Green function into two parts: one is associated with the empty space-time, while the other describes the impact of compactification. This provides a natural procedure for calculating the renormalized energy-momentum tensor. Self interacting four-fermion systems, described by the Gross-Neveu and Nambu-Jona-Lasinio models, are considered. Then finite size effects on
Algebraic Quantum Mechanics and Pregeometry
Hiley, D J B P G D B J
2006-01-01
We discuss the relation between the q-number approach to quantum mechanics suggested by Dirac and the notion of "pregeometry" introduced by Wheeler. By associating the q-numbers with the elements of an algebra and regarding the primitive idempotents as "generalized points" we suggest an approach that may make it possible to dispense with an a priori given space manifold. In this approach the algebra itself would carry the symmetries of translation, rotation, etc. Our suggestion is illustrated in a preliminary way by using a particular generalized Clifford Algebra proposed originally by Weyl, which approaches the ordinary Heisenberg algebra in a suitable limit. We thus obtain a certain insight into how quantum mechanics may be regarded as a purely algebraic theory, provided that we further introduce a new set of "neighbourhood operators", which remove an important kind of arbitrariness that has thus far been present in the attempt to treat quantum mechanics solely in terms of a Heisenberg algebra.
Open and Closed String field theory interpreted in classical Algebraic Topology
Sullivan, Dennis
2003-01-01
There is an interpretation of open string field theory in algebraic topology. An interpretation of closed string field theory can be deduced from this open string theory to obtain as well the interpretation of open and closed string field theory combined.
Compactly supported Wannier functions and algebraic K -theory
Read, N.
2017-03-01
In a tight-binding lattice model with n orbitals (single-particle states) per site, Wannier functions are n -component vector functions of position that fall off rapidly away from some location, and such that a set of them in some sense span all states in a given energy band or set of bands; compactly supported Wannier functions are such functions that vanish outside a bounded region. They arise not only in band theory, but also in connection with tensor-network states for noninteracting fermion systems, and for flat-band Hamiltonians with strictly short-range hopping matrix elements. In earlier work, it was proved that for general complex band structures (vector bundles) or general complex Hamiltonians—that is, class A in the tenfold classification of Hamiltonians and band structures—a set of compactly supported Wannier functions can span the vector bundle only if the bundle is topologically trivial, in any dimension d of space, even when use of an overcomplete set of such functions is permitted. This implied that, for a free-fermion tensor network state with a nontrivial bundle in class A, any strictly short-range parent Hamiltonian must be gapless. Here, this result is extended to all ten symmetry classes of band structures without additional crystallographic symmetries, with the result that in general the nontrivial bundles that can arise from compactly supported Wannier-type functions are those that may possess, in each of d directions, the nontrivial winding that can occur in the same symmetry class in one dimension, but nothing else. The results are obtained from a very natural usage of algebraic K -theory, based on a ring of polynomials in e±i kx,e±i ky,..., which occur as entries in the Fourier-transformed Wannier functions.
Cohomological Donaldson-Thomas theory of a quiver with potential and quantum enveloping algebras
Davison, Ben
2016-01-01
This paper is a companion paper to 1512.08898, on the general definition of Donaldson--Thomas invariants for Jacobi algebras, or equivalently, the integrality conjecture for such algebras. In this paper we concentrate on the Hodge-theoretic aspects of the theory, and explore the structure of the Cohomological Hall algebra associated to a quiver and potential, introduced by Kontsevich and Soibelman. Via a study of the representation theory of these algebras, we introduce a perverse filtration on them, and prove that they are quantum enveloping algebras, for which the integrality theorem, and the wall crossing theorem relating DT invariants for different Bridgeland stability conditions, are a K-theoretic shadow of the existence of PBW bases.

When is a hermitian $\\mathcal{Q}$-algebra, one gets -theory isomorphism $R K_∗(S(\\mathbb{R},A^∞,))=K_∗(C^∗(\\mathbb{R}, E(A),)$ for the representable -theory of Frechet algebras. An application to the differential structure of a *-algebra defined by densely defined differential seminorms is given.

On deformation theory of quantum vertex algebras
Grosse, H; Grosse, Harald; Schlesinger, Karl-Georg
2005-01-01
We study an algebraic deformation problem which captures the data of the general deformation problem for a quantum vertex algebra. We derive a system of coupled equations which is the counterpart of the Maurer-Cartan equation on the usual Hochschild complex of an assocative algebra. We show that this system of equations results from an action principle. This might be the starting point for a perturbative treatment of the deformation problem of quantum vertex algebras. Our action generalizes the action of the Kodaira-Spencer theory of gravity and might therefore also be of relevance for applications in string theory.

Algebraic K-theory and derived equivalences suggested by T-duality for torus orientifolds
Rosenberg, Jonathan
2016-01-01
We show that certain isomorphisms of (twisted) KR-groups that underlie T-dualities of torus orientifold string theories have purely algebraic analogues in terms of algebraic K-theory of real varieties and equivalences of derived categories of (twisted) coherent sheaves. The most interesting conclusion is a kind of Mukai duality in which the "dual abelian variety" to a smooth projective genus-1 curve over R with no real points is (mildly) noncommutative.
Unified (p,q;α,γ,l)-deformation of oscillator algebra and two-dimensional conformal field theory
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Burban, I.M., E-mail: burban@bitp.kiev.ua
2013-11-29
The unified (p,q;α,γ,l)-deformation of a number of well-known deformed oscillator algebras is introduced. The deformation is constructed by imputing new free parameters into the structure functions and by generalizing the defining relations of these algebras. The generalized Jordan–Schwinger and Holstein–Primakoff realizations of the U{sub pq}{sup αγl}(su(2)) algebra by the generalized (p,q;α,γ,l)-deformed operators are found. The generalized (p,q;α,γ,l)-deformation of the two-dimensional conformal field theory is established. By introducing the (p,q;α,γ,l)-operator product expansion (OPE) between the energy–momentum tensor and primary fields, we obtain the (p,q;α,γ,l)-deformed centerless Virasoro algebra. The two-point correlation function of the primary generalized (p,q;α,γ,l)-deformed fields is calculated.
Cylindric-like algebras and algebraic logic
Ferenczi, Miklós; Németi, István
2013-01-01
Algebraic logic is a subject in the interface between logic, algebra and geometry, it has strong connections with category theory and combinatorics. Tarski’s quest for finding structure in logic leads to cylindric-like algebras as studied in this book, they are among the main players in Tarskian algebraic logic. Cylindric algebra theory can be viewed in many ways: as an algebraic form of definability theory, as a study of higher-dimensional relations, as an enrichment of Boolean Algebra theory, or, as logic in geometric form (“cylindric” in the name refers to geometric aspects). Cylindric-like algebras have a wide range of applications, in, e.g., natural language theory, data-base theory, stochastics, and even in relativity theory. The present volume, consisting of 18 survey papers, intends to give an overview of the main achievements and new research directions in the past 30 years, since the publication of the Henkin-Monk-Tarski monographs. It is dedicated to the memory of Leon Henkin.

Three-Algebra Bfss Matrix Theory
Sato, Matsuo
2013-11-01
We extend the BFSS matrix theory by means of Lie 3-algebra. The extended model possesses the same supersymmetry as the original BFSS matrix theory, and thus as the infinite momentum frame limit of M-theory. We study dynamics of the model by choosing the minimal Lie 3-algebra that includes u(N) algebra. We can solve a constraint in the minimal model and obtain two phases. In one phase, the model reduces to the original matrix model. In another phase, it reduces to a simple supersymmetric model.

Full Text Available Complex functions are investigated which are solutions of an elliptic system of partial differential equations associated with a real parameter function. The functions f associated with a particualr parameter function g on a domain D form a Beltrami algebra denoted by the pair (D,g and a function theory is developed in this algebra. A strong conformality property holds for all functions in a (D,g algebra. For g≡|z|=r the algebra (D,r is that of the analytic functions.

In two languages, Linear Algebra and Lie Algebra, we describe the results of Kostant and Wallach on the fibre of matrices with prescribed eigenvalues of all leading principal submatrices. In addition, we present a brief introduction to basic notions in Algebraic Geometry, Integrable Systems, and Lie Algebra aimed at specialists in Linear Algebra.
Linear algebraic theory of partial coherence: discrete fields and measures of partial coherence.
Ozaktas, Haldun M; Yüksel, Serdar; Kutay, M Alper
2002-08-01
A linear algebraic theory of partial coherence is presented that allows precise mathematical definitions of concepts such as coherence and incoherence. This not only provides new perspectives and insights but also allows us to employ the conceptual and algebraic tools of linear algebra in applications. We define several scalar measures of the degree of partial coherence of an optical field that are zero for full incoherence and unity for full coherence. The mathematical definitions are related to our physical understanding of the corresponding concepts by considering them in the context of Young's experiment.
Foliation theory in algebraic geometry

2016-01-01
Featuring a blend of original research papers and comprehensive surveys from an international team of leading researchers in the thriving fields of foliation theory, holomorphic foliations, and birational geometry, this book presents the proceedings of the conference "Foliation Theory in Algebraic Geometry," hosted by the Simons Foundation in New York City in September 2013. Topics covered include: Fano and del Pezzo foliations; the cone theorem and rank one foliations; the structure of symmetric differentials on a smooth complex surface and a local structure theorem for closed symmetric differentials of rank two; an overview of lifting symmetric differentials from varieties with canonical singularities and the applications to the classification of AT bundles on singular varieties; an overview of the powerful theory of the variety of minimal rational tangents introduced by Hwang and Mok; recent examples of varieties which are hyperbolic and yet the Green-Griffiths locus is the whole of X; and a classificati...
Temperley-Lieb Algebra: From Knot Theory to Logic and Computation via Quantum Mechanics
Abramsky, Samson
2009-01-01
Our aim in this paper is to trace some of the surprising and beautiful connections which are beginning to emerge between a number of apparently disparate topics: Knot Theory, Categorical Quantum Mechanics, and Logic and Computation. We shall focus in particular on the following two topics: - The Temperley-Lieb algebra has always hitherto been presented as a quotient of some sort: either algebraically by generators and relations as in Jones' original presentation, or as a diagram algebra modulo planar isotopy as in Kauffman's presentation. We shall use tools from Geometry of Interaction, a dynamical interpretation of proofs under Cut Elimination developed as an off-shoot of Linear Logic, to give a direct description of the Temperley-Lieb category -- a "fully abstract presentation", in Computer Science terminology. This also brings something new to the Geometry of Interaction, since we are led to develop a planar version of it, and to verify that the interpretation of Cut-Elimination (the "Execution Formula", o...
Linear algebraic theory of partial coherence: continuous fields and measures of partial coherence.
Ozaktas, Haldun M; Gulcu, Talha Cihad; Alper Kutay, M
2016-11-01
This work presents a linear algebraic theory of partial coherence for optical fields of continuous variables. This approach facilitates use of linear algebraic techniques and makes it possible to precisely define the concepts of incoherence and coherence in a mathematical way. We have proposed five scalar measures for the degree of partial coherence. These measures are zero for incoherent fields, unity for fully coherent fields, and between zero and one for partially coherent fields.

We present a definition of spectral flow for any norm closed ideal J in any von Neumann algebra N. Given a path of selfadjoint operators in N which are invertible in N/J, the spectral flow produces a class in Ko (J). Given a semifinite spectral triple (A, H, D) relative to (N, t) with A separable......, we construct a class [D] ¿ KK1 (A, K(N)). For a unitary u ¿ A, the von Neumann spectral flow between D and u*Du is equal to the Kasparov product [u] A[D], and is simply related to the numerical spectral flow, and a refined C* -spectral flow....
Algebraic geometry informs perturbative quantum field theory
Broadhurst, David
2014-01-01
Single-scale Feynman diagrams yield integrals that are periods, namely projective integrals of rational functions of Schwinger parameters. Algebraic geometry may therefore inform us of the types of number to which these integrals evaluate. We give examples at 3, 4 and 6 loops of massive Feynman diagrams that evaluate to Dirichlet $L$-series of modular forms and examples at 6, 7 and 8 loops of counterterms that evaluate to multiple zeta values or polylogarithms of the sixth root of unity. At 8 loops and beyond, algebraic geometry informs us that polylogs are insufficient for the evaluation of terms in the beta-function of $\\phi^4$ theory. Here, modular forms appear as obstructions to polylogarithmic evaluation.
General Theory of Algebraic Equations
Bezout, Etienne
2008-01-01
This book provides the first English translation of Bezout's masterpiece, the General Theory of Algebraic Equations. It follows, by almost two hundred years, the English translation of his famous mathematics textbooks. Here, Bézout presents his approach to solving systems of polynomial equations in several variables and in great detail. He introduces the revolutionary notion of the "polynomial multiplier," which greatly simplifies the problem of variable elimination by reducing it to a system of linear equations. The major result presented in this work, now known as "Bézout's theorem," is stat

The S-expansion framework is analyzed in the context of a freedom in closing the multiplication tables for the abelian semigroups. Including the possibility of the zero element in the resonant decomposition, and associating the Lorentz generator with the semigroup identity element, leads to a wide class of the expanded Lie algebras introducing interesting modifications to the gauge gravity theories. Among the results, we find all the Maxwell algebras of type {{B}m} , {{C}m} , and the recently introduced {{D}m} . The additional new examples complete the resulting generalization of the bosonic enlargements for an arbitrary number of the Lorentz-like and translational-like generators. Some further prospects concerning enlarging the algebras are discussed, along with providing all the necessary constituents for constructing the gravity actions based on the obtained results.

We study quantized Coulomb branches of quiver gauge theories of Jordan type. We prove that the quantized Coulomb branch is isomorphic to the spherical graded Cherednik algebra in the unframed case, and is isomorphic to the spherical cyclotomic rational Cherednik algebra in the framed case. We also prove that the quantized Coulomb branch is a deformation of a subquotient of the Yangian of the affine $\\mathfrak{gl}(1)$.

Localization of dipoles and quadrupoles is important in inverse potential analysis, since they can effectively express spatially extended sources with a small number of parmeters. This paper proposes an algebraic method for reconstruction of pole positions as well as the number of dipole-quadrupoles without providing an initial parameter guess or iterative computing forward solutions. It is also shown that a magnetoencephalography inverse problem with a source model of dipole-quadrupoles in 3D space is reduced into the same problem as in 2D space.

A generalization of the Yang-Baxter algebra is found in quantizing the monodromy matrix of two (m)KdV equations discretized on a space lattice. This braided Yang-Baxter equation still ensures that the transfer matrix generates operators in involution which form the Cartan sub-algebra of the braided quantum group. Representations diagonalizing these operators are described through relying on an easy generalization of Algebraic Bethe Ansatz techniques. The conjecture that this monodromy matrix algebra leads, {\\it in the cylinder continuum limit}, to a Perturbed Minimal Conformal Field Theory description is analysed and supported.

This book recounts the connections between multidimensional hypergeometric functions and representation theory. In 1984, physicists Knizhnik and Zamolodchikov discovered a fundamental differential equation describing correlation functions in conformal field theory. The equation is defined in terms of a Lie algebra. Kohno and Drinfeld found that the monodromy of the differential equation is described in terms of the quantum group associated with the Lie algebra. It turns out that this phenomenon is the tip of the iceberg. The Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov differential equation is solved in multidimens
Trigonometric sums in number theory and analysis

The book presents the theory of multiple trigonometric sums constructed by the authors. Following a unified approach, the authors obtain estimates for these sums similar to the classical I. M. Vinogradov´s estimates and use them to solve several problems in analytic number theory. They investigate trigonometric integrals, which are often encountered in physics, mathematical statistics, and analysis, and in addition they present purely arithmetic results concerning the solvability of equations in integers.

The principle of tannakian duality states that any neutral tannakian category is tensorially equivalent to the category Rep_k G of finite dimensional representations of some affine group scheme G and field k, and conversely. Originally motivated by an attempt to find a first-order explanation for generic cohomology of algebraic groups, we study neutral tannakian categories as abstract first-order structures and, in particular, ultraproducts of them. One of the main theorems of this dissertation is that certain naturally definable subcategories of these ultraproducts are themselves neutral tannakian categories, hence tensorially equivalent to Comod_A for some Hopf algebra A over a field k. We are able to give a fairly tidy description of the representing Hopf algebras of these categories, and explicitly compute them in several examples. For the second half of this dissertation we turn our attention to the representation theories of certain unipotent algebraic groups, namely the additive group G_a and the Heise...
Algebra of Complex Vectors and Applications in Electromagnetic Theory and Quantum Mechanics
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Kundeti Muralidhar
2015-08-01
Full Text Available A complex vector is a sum of a vector and a bivector and forms a natural extension of a vector. The complex vectors have certain special geometric properties and considered as algebraic entities. These represent rotations along with specified orientation and direction in space. It has been shown that the association of complex vector with its conjugate generates complex vector space and the corresponding basis elements defined from the complex vector and its conjugate form a closed complex four dimensional linear space. The complexification process in complex vector space allows the generation of higher n-dimensional geometric algebra from (n — 1-dimensional algebra by considering the unit pseudoscalar identification with square root of minus one. The spacetime algebra can be generated from the geometric algebra by considering a vector equal to square root of plus one. The applications of complex vector algebra are discussed mainly in the electromagnetic theory and in the dynamics of an elementary particle with extended structure. Complex vector formalism simplifies the expressions and elucidates geometrical understanding of the basic concepts. The analysis shows that the existence of spin transforms a classical oscillator into a quantum oscillator. In conclusion the classical mechanics combined with zeropoint field leads to quantum mechanics.
Singularity theory for W-algebra potentials
Gaite, J C
1993-01-01
The Landau potentials of $W_3$-algebra models are analyzed with algebraic-geometric methods. The number of ground states and the number of independent perturbations of every potential coincide and can be computed. This number agrees with the structure of ground states obtained in a previous paper, namely, as the phase structure of the IRF models of Jimbo et al. The singularities associated to these potentials are identified.

This monograph is the first and an initial introduction to the theory of bitopological spaces and its applications. In particular, different families of subsets of bitopological spaces are introduced and various relations between two topologies are analyzed on one and the same set; the theory of dimension of bitopological spaces and the theory of Baire bitopological spaces are constructed, and various classes of mappings of bitopological spaces are studied. The previously known results as well the results obtained in this monograph are applied in analysis, potential theory, general topology, a

Duality theories for Boolean algebras with operators
Givant, Steven
2014-01-01
In this new text, Steven Givant—the author of several acclaimed books, including works co-authored with Paul Halmos and Alfred Tarski—develops three theories of duality for Boolean algebras with operators. Givant addresses the two most recognized dualities (one algebraic and the other topological) and introduces a third duality, best understood as a hybrid of the first two. This text will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in the fields of mathematics, computer science, logic, and philosophy who are interested in exploring special or general classes of Boolean algebras with operators. Readers should be familiar with the basic arithmetic and theory of Boolean algebras, as well as the fundamentals of point-set topology.
W∞ Algebras from Noncommutative Chern Simons Theory
Pinzul, A.; Stern, A.
We examine Chern Simons theory written on a noncommutative plane with a "hole", and show that the algebra of observables is a nonlinear deformation of the w∞ algebra. The deformation depends on the level (the coefficient in the Chern Simons action), and the noncommutativity parameter, which were identified, respectively, with the inverse filling fraction (minus one) and the inverse density in a recent description of the fractional quantum Hall effect. We remark on the quantization of our algebra. The results are sensitive to the choice of ordering in the Gauss law.
Quantum Field Theories and Prime Numbers Spectrum
Menezes, G
2012-01-01
The Riemann hypothesis states that all nontrivial zeros of the zeta function lie on the critical line $\\Re(s)=1/2$. Hilbert and P\\'olya suggested a possible approach to prove it, based on spectral theory. Within this context, some authors formulated the question: is there a quantum mechanical system related to the sequence of prime numbers? In this Letter we assume that there is a class of hypothetical physical systems described by self-adjoint operators with countable infinite number of degrees of freedom with spectra given by the sequence of primes numbers. We prove a no-go theorem. We show that the generating functional of connected Schwinger functions of such theories cannot be constructed.

In 1998 the Adapted Ordering Method was developed for the study of the representation theory of the superconformal algebras in two dimensions. It allows: to determine the maximal dimension for a given type of space of singular vectors, to identify all singular vectors by only a few coefficients, to spot subsingular vectors and to set the basis for constructing embedding diagrams. In this talk I introduce the present version of the Adapted Ordering Method, published in J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 41 (2008) 045201, which can be applied to general Lie algebras and superalgebras and their generalizations, provided they can be triangulated.

The present book, on Smarandache linear algebra, not only studies the Smarandache analogues of linear algebra and its applications, it also aims to bridge the need for new research topics pertaining to linear algebra, purely in the algebraic sense.

Moreover, in this book, we have brought out the study of linear algebra and ve...
Lorentzian Lie (3-)algebra and toroidal compactification of M/string theory
Ho, Pei-Ming; Shiba, Shotaro
2009-01-01
We construct a class of Lie 3-algebras with an arbitrary number of pairs of generators with Lorentzian signature metric. Some examples are given and corresponding BLG models are studied. We show that such a system in general describes a supersymmetric massive vector multiplets after the ghost fields are Higgsed. Simple systems with nontrivial interaction are realized by infinite dimensional Lie 3-algebras associated with the loop algebras. The massive fields are then naturally identified with the Kaluza-Klein modes by the toroidal compactification triggered by the ghost fields. For example, Dp-brane with an (infinite dimensional) affine Lie algebra symmetry $\\hat g$ can be identified with D(p+1)-brane with gauge symmetry $g$.

We present a definition of spectral flow relative to any norm closed ideal J in any von Neumann algebra N. Given a path D(t) of selfadjoint operators in N which are invertible in N/J, the spectral flow produces a class in K_0(J). In the case when N is semifinite, the numerical spectral flow...
Noncommutative Solitons and the W_{1+\\infty} Algebras in Quantum Hall Theory
Chan, C T; Chan, Chuan-Tsung; Lee, Jen-Chi
2001-01-01
We show that U(\\infty) symmetry transformations of the noncommutative field theory in the Moyal space are generated by a combination of two W_{1+\\infty} algebras in the Landau problem. Geometrical meaning of this infinite symmetry is illustrated by examining the transformations of an invariant subgroup on the noncommutative solitons, which generate deformations and boosts of solitons.
A Relational Localisation Theory for Topological Algebras
2012-01-01
In this thesis, we develop a relational localisation theory for topological algebras, i.e., a theory that studies local approximations of a topological algebra’s relational counterpart. In order to provide an appropriate framework for our considerations, we first introduce a general Galois theory between continuous functions and closed relations on an arbitrary topological space. Subsequently to this rather foundational discussion, we establish the desired localisation theory comprising the i...
Domain wall solitons and Hopf algebraic translational symmetries in noncommutative field theories
Sasai, Yuya; Sasakura, Naoki
2008-02-01
Domain wall solitons are the simplest topological objects in field theories. The conventional translational symmetry in a field theory is the generator of a one-parameter family of domain wall solutions, and induces a massless moduli field which propagates along a domain wall. We study similar issues in braided noncommutative field theories possessing Hopf algebraic translational symmetries. As a concrete example, we discuss a domain wall soliton in the scalar ϕ4 braided noncommutative field theory in Lie-algebraic noncommutative space-time, [xi,xj]=2iκγijkxk (i,j,k=1,2,3), which has a Hopf algebraic translational symmetry. We first discuss the existence of a domain wall soliton in view of Derrick’s theorem, and construct explicitly a one-parameter family of solutions in perturbation of the noncommutativity parameter κ. We then find the massless moduli field which propagates on the domain wall soliton. We further extend our analysis to the general Hopf algebraic translational symmetry.

We first discuss the existence of a domain wall soliton in view of Derrick's theorem, and construct explicitly a one-parameter family of solutions in perturbation of the noncommutativity parameter kappa. We then find the massless moduli field which propagates on the domain wall soliton. We further extend our analysis to the general Hopf algebraic translational symmetry.
Spectral theory of linear operators and spectral systems in Banach algebras
Müller, Vladimir
2003-01-01
This book is dedicated to the spectral theory of linear operators on Banach spaces and of elements in Banach algebras. It presents a survey of results concerning various types of spectra, both of single and n-tuples of elements. Typical examples are the one-sided spectra, the approximate point, essential, local and Taylor spectrum, and their variants. The theory is presented in a unified, axiomatic and elementary way. Many results appear here for the first time in a monograph. The material is self-contained. Only a basic knowledge of functional analysis, topology, and complex analysis is assumed. The monograph should appeal both to students who would like to learn about spectral theory and to experts in the field. It can also serve as a reference book. The present second edition contains a number of new results, in particular, concerning orbits and their relations to the invariant subspace problem. This book is dedicated to the spectral theory of linear operators on Banach spaces and of elements in Banach alg...

"This book aims to disseminate geometric algebra as a straightforward mathematical tool set for working with and understanding classical electromagnetic theory. It's target readership is anyone who has some knowledge of electromagnetic theory, predominantly ordinary scientists and engineers who use it in the course of their work, or postgraduate students and senior undergraduates who are seeking to broaden their knowledge and increase their understanding of the subject. It is assumed that the reader is not a mathematical specialist and is neither familiar with geometric algebra or its application to electromagnetic theory. The modern approach, geometric algebra, is the mathematical tool set we should all have started out with and once the reader has a grasp of the subject, he or she cannot fail to realize that traditional vector analysis is really awkward and even misleading by comparison"--Provided by publisher.
The algebraic crossing number and the braid index of knots and links
Kawamuro, Keiko
2009-01-01
It has been conjectured that the algebraic crossing number of a link is uniquely determined in minimal braid representation. This conjecture is true for many classes of knots and links. The Morton-Franks-Williams inequality gives a lower bound for braid index. And sharpness of the inequality on a knot type implies the truth of the conjecture for the knot type. We prove that there are infinitely many examples of knots and links for which the inequality is not sharp but the conjecture is still true. We also show that if the conjecture is true for K and L, then it is also true for the (p,q)-cable of K and for the connect sum of K and L.

The ring of quaternion over R, denoted by R[i,j,k], is a quaternion algebra. In this paper, the roots of quadratic equation with one variable in quaternion field are investigated and it is shown that it has infinitely many roots. Then the properties of quaternion algebra over Zp are discussed, and the order of its unit group is determined. Lastly, another ring isomorphism of M2(Zp) and the quaternion algebra over Zp when p satisfies some particular conditions are presented.
The number of simple modules of a cellular algebra

LI Weixia; XI Changchang
2005-01-01
Let n be a natural number, and let A be an indecomposable cellular algebra such that the spectrum of its Cartan matrix C is of theform {n, 1,..., 1}. In general, not every natural number could be the number of non-isomorphic simple modules over such a cellular algebra. Thus, two natural questions arise: (1) which numbers could be the number of non-isomorphic simple modules over such a cellular algebra A ? (2) Given such a number, is there a cellular algebra such that its Cartan matrix has the desired property ? In this paper, we shall completely answer the first question, and give a partial answer to the second question by constructing cellular algebras with the pre-described Cartan matrix.

We show how the abstract analytic number theory of Maier, Postnikov, and others can be extended to include negative numbers and apply this to thermodynamics, information theory, and human thermodynamics. In particular, we introduce a certain large number N 0 on the "zero level" with a high multiplicity number q i ≫ 1 related to the physical concept of gap in the spectrum. We introduce a general notion of "hole," similar to the Dirac hole in physics, in the theory. We also consider analogs of thermodynamical notions in human thermodynamics, in particular, in connection with the role of the individual in history.
Algebras with actions and automata
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
W. Kühnel
1982-01-01
Full Text Available In the present paper we want to give a common structure theory of left action, group operations, R-modules and automata of different types defined over various kinds of carrier objects: sets, graphs, presheaves, sheaves, topological spaces (in particular: compactly generated Hausdorff spaces. The first section gives an axiomatic approach to algebraic structures relative to a base category B, slightly more powerful than that of monadic (tripleable functors. In section 2 we generalize Lawveres functorial semantics to many-sorted algebras over cartesian closed categories. In section 3 we treat the structures mentioned in the beginning as many-sorted algebras with fixed scalar or input object and show that they still have an algebraic (or monadic forgetful functor (theorem 3.3 and hence the general theory of algebraic structures applies. These structures were usually treated as one-sorted in the Lawvere-setting, the action being expressed by a family of unary operations indexed over the scalars. But this approach cannot, as the one developed here, describe continuity of the action (more general: the action to be a B-morphism, which is essential for the structures mentioned above, e.g. modules for a sheaf of rings or topological automata. Finally we discuss consequences of theorem 3.3 for the structure theory of various types of automata. The particular case of algebras with fixed natural numbers object has been studied by the authors in [23].
Algebraic independence results for reciprocal sums of Fibonacci and Lucas numbers
Stein, Martin
2011-09-01
Let Fn and Ln denote the Fibonacci and Lucas numbers, respectively. D. Duverney, Ke. Nishioka, Ku. Nishioka and I. Shiokawa proved that the values of the Fibonacci zeta function ζF(2s) = Σn = 1∞Fn-2s are transcendental for any s∈N using Nesterenko's theorem on Ramanujan functions P(q), Q(q), and R(q). They obtained similar results for the Lucas zeta function ζL(2s) = Σn = 1∞Ln-2s and some related series. Later, C. Elsner, S. Shimomura and I. Shiokawa found conditions for the algebraic independence of these series. In my PhD thesis I generalized their approach and treated the following problem: We investigate all subsets of { ∑ n = 1∞1/Fn2s1, ∑ n = 1∞(-1)n+1/Fn2s2, ∑ n = 1∞1/Ln2s3, ∑ n = 1∞(-1)n+1/Ln2s4:s1,s2,s3,s4∈N} and decide on their algebraic independence over Q. Actually this is a special case of a more general theorem for reciprocal sums of binary recurrent sequences.

We describe of the generalized Drinfeld-Sokolov Hamiltonian reduction for the construction of classical -algebras within the framework of Poisson vertex algebras. In this context, the gauge group action on the phase space is translated in terms of (the exponential of) a Lie conformal algebra action on the space of functions. Following the ideas of Drinfeld and Sokolov, we then establish under certain sufficient conditions the applicability of the Lenard-Magri scheme of integrability and the existence of the corresponding integrable hierarchy of bi-Hamiltonian equations.

Being inspired by phasor analysis in linear circuit theory, and its algebraic counterpart - the AC-(operational)-calculus for sinusoids developed by W. Marten and W. Mathis - we define a complex structure on several spaces of real-valued elementary functions. This is used to algebraize inhomogeneous linear ordinary differential equations with inhomogenities stemming from these spaces. Thus we deduce an effective method to calculate particular solutions of these ODEs in a purely algebraic way.
Quantum field theory on toroidal topology: algebraic structure and applications
Khanna, F C; Malbouisson, J M C; Santana, A E
2014-01-01
The development of quantum theory on a torus has a long history, and can be traced back to the 1920s, with the attempts by Nordstr\\"om, Kaluza and Klein to define a fourth spatial dimension with a finite size, being curved in the form of a torus, such that Einstein and Maxwell equations would be unified. Many developments were carried out considering cosmological problems in association with particles physics, leading to methods that are useful for areas of physics, in which size effects play an important role. This interest in finite size effect systems has been increasing rapidly over the last decades, due principally to experimental improvements. In this review, the foundations of compactified quantum field theory on a torus are presented in a unified way, in order to consider applications in particle and condensed matted physics.

2015-01-01
This course-based primer provides an introduction to Lie algebras and some of their applications to the spectroscopy of molecules, atoms, nuclei and hadrons. In the first part, it concisely presents the basic concepts of Lie algebras, their representations and their invariants. The second part includes a description of how Lie algebras are used in practice in the treatment of bosonic and fermionic systems. Physical applications considered include rotations and vibrations of molecules (vibron model), collective modes in nuclei (interacting boson model), the atomic shell model, the nuclear shell model, and the quark model of hadrons. One of the key concepts in the application of Lie algebraic methods in physics, that of spectrum generating algebras and their associated dynamic symmetries, is also discussed. The book highlights a number of examples that help to illustrate the abstract algebraic definitions and includes a summary of many formulas of practical interest, such as the eigenvalues of Casimir operators...

The Clay Mathematics Institute is offering a prize of 1 million to anyone who can discover a general solution to the problem. In this book, Avner Ash and Robert Gross guide readers through the mathematics they need to understand this captivating problem. The key to the conjecture lies in elliptic curves, which are cubic equations in two variables. These equations may appear simple, yet they arise from
On dibaric and evolution algebras
Ladra, M; Rozikov, U A
2011-01-01
We find conditions on ideals of an algebra under which the algebra is dibaric. Dibaric algebras have not non-zero homomorphisms to the set of the real numbers. We introduce a concept of bq-homomorphism (which is given by two linear maps $f, g$ of the algebra to the set of the real numbers) and show that an algebra is dibaric if and only if it admits a non-zero bq-homomorphism. Using the pair $(f,g)$ we define conservative algebras and establish criteria for a dibaric algebra to be conservative. Moreover, the notions of a Bernstein algebra and an algebra induced by a linear operator are introduced and relations between these algebras are studied. For dibaric algebras we describe a dibaric algebra homomorphism and study their properties by bq-homomorphisms of the dibaric algebras. We apply the results to the (dibaric) evolution algebra of a bisexual population. For this dibaric algebra we describe all possible bq-homomorphisms and find conditions under which the algebra of a bisexual population is induced by a ...

1997-01-01
This volume contains expanded versions of lectures given at an instructional conference on number theory and arithmetic geometry held August 9 through 18, 1995 at Boston University. Contributor's includeThe purpose of the conference, and of this book, is to introduce and explain the many ideas and techniques used by Wiles in his proof that every (semi-stable) elliptic curve over Q is modular, and to explain how Wiles' result can be combined with Ribet's theorem and ideas of Frey and Serre to show, at long last, that Fermat's Last Theorem is true. The book begins with an overview of the complete proof, followed by several introductory chapters surveying the basic theory of elliptic curves, modular functions, modular curves, Galois cohomology, and finite group schemes. Representation theory, which lies at the core of Wiles' proof, is dealt with in a chapter on automorphic representations and the Langlands-Tunnell theorem, and this is followed by in-depth discussions of Serre's conjectures, Galois deformations, ...

Homology theory on algebraic varieties
Wallace, Andrew H
2014-01-01
Concise and authoritative, this monograph is geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The main theorems whose proofs are given here were first formulated by Lefschetz and have since turned out to be of fundamental importance in the topological aspects of algebraic geometry. The proofs are fairly elaborate and involve a considerable amount of detail; therefore, some appear in separate chapters that include geometrical descriptions and diagrams.The treatment begins with a brief introduction and considerations of linear sections of an algebraic variety as well as singular and h
Controlled algebraic G-theory, I
Carlsson, Gunnar
2011-01-01
This paper extends the notion of geometric control in algebraic K-theory from additive categories with split exact sequences to other exact structures. In particular, we construct exact categories of modules over a Noetherian ring filtered by subsets of a metric space and sensitive to the large scale properties of the space. The algebraic K-theory of these categories is related to the bounded K-theory of geometric modules of Pedersen and Weibel the way G-theory is classically related to K-theory. We recover familiar results in the new setting, including the nonconnective bounded excision and equivariant properties. We apply the results to the G-theoretic Novikov conjecture which is shown to be stronger than the usual K-theoretic conjecture.

Yao Chen ZHU
2007-01-01
In this paper the generalized Mahler type number Mh(g;A,T) is defined, and in the case of multiplicatively dependent parameters gi, hi(1≤ I≤ s) the algebraic independence of the numbers Mh, (gi; A, T)(1≤I≤s) is proved, where A and T are certain infinite sequences of non-negative integers and of positive integers, respectively. Furthermore, the algebraic independence result on values of a certain function connected with the generalized Mahler type number and its derivatives at algebraic numbers is also given.
An experimental investigation of the normality of irrational algebraic numbers

Nielsen, Johan Sejr Brinch; Simonsen, Jakob Grue
2013-01-01
We investigate the distribution of digits of large prefixes of the expansion of irrational algebraic numbers to different bases. We compute 2.318 bits of the binary expansions (corresponding to 2.33.108 decimals) of the 39 least Pisot-Vijayaraghavan numbers, the 47 least known Salem numbers...... blocks for each number to bases 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10, as well as the maximum relative frequency deviation from perfect equidistribution. We use the two statistics to perform tests at significance level α = 0.05, respectively, maximum deviation threshold α = 0.05. Our results suggest that if Borel......'s conjecture-that all irrational algebraic numbers are normal-is true, then it may have an empirical base: The distribution of digits in algebraic numbers appears close to equidistribution for large prefixes of their expansion. Of the 121 algebraic numbers studied, all numbers passed the maximum relative...
Symbolic Computation, Number Theory, Special Functions, Physics and Combinatorics
Ismail, Mourad
2001-01-01
These are the proceedings of the conference "Symbolic Computation, Number Theory, Special Functions, Physics and Combinatorics" held at the Department of Mathematics, University of Florida, Gainesville, from November 11 to 13, 1999. The main emphasis of the conference was Com puter Algebra (i. e. symbolic computation) and how it related to the fields of Number Theory, Special Functions, Physics and Combinatorics. A subject that is common to all of these fields is q-series. We brought together those who do symbolic computation with q-series and those who need q-series in cluding workers in Physics and Combinatorics. The goal of the conference was to inform mathematicians and physicists who use q-series of the latest developments in the field of q-series and especially how symbolic computa tion has aided these developments. Over 60 people were invited to participate in the conference. We ended up having 45 participants at the conference, including six one hour plenary speakers and 28 half hour speakers. T...

Methods of algebraic geometry in control theory
Falb, Peter
1999-01-01
"Control theory represents an attempt to codify, in mathematical terms, the principles and techniques used in the analysis and design of control systems. Algebraic geometry may, in an elementary way, be viewed as the study of the structure and properties of the solutions of systems of algebraic equations. The aim of this book is to provide access to the methods of algebraic geometry for engineers and applied scientists through the motivated context of control theory" .* The development which culminated with this volume began over twenty-five years ago with a series of lectures at the control group of the Lund Institute of Technology in Sweden. I have sought throughout to strive for clarity, often using constructive methods and giving several proofs of a particular result as well as many examples. The first volume dealt with the simplest control systems (i.e., single input, single output linear time-invariant systems) and with the simplest algebraic geometry (i.e., affine algebraic geometry). While this is qui...
Spectral numbers in Floer theories
Usher, Michael
2007-01-01
The chain complexes underlying Floer homology theories typically carry a real-valued filtration, allowing one to associate to each Floer homology class a spectral number defined as the infimum of the filtration levels of chains representing that class. These spectral numbers have been studied extensively in the case of Hamiltonian Floer homology by Oh, Schwarz, and others. We prove that the spectral number associated to any nonzero Floer homology class is always finite, and that the infimum in the definition of the spectral number is always attained. In the Hamiltonian case, this implies that what is known as the "nondegenerate spectrality" axiom holds on all closed symplectic manifolds. Our proofs are entirely algebraic and rather elementary, and apply to any Floer-type theory (including Novikov homology) satisfying certain standard formal properties provided that one works with coefficients in a Novikov ring whose degree-zero part \\Lambda_0 is a field. The key ingredient is a theorem about linear transforma...
Supersymmetry algebra and BPS states of super Yang-Mills theories on noncommutative tori
Konechny, Anatoly; Schwarz, Albert
1999-04-01
We consider 10-dimensional super Yang-Mills theory with topological terms compactified on a noncommutative torus. We calculate supersymmetry algebra and derive BPS energy spectra from it. The cases of d-dimensional tori with d=2,3,4 are considered in full detail. SO(d,d,Z)-invariance of the BPS spectrum and relation of new results to the previous work in this direction are discussed.
A property of algebraic univoque numbers

Consider the set U of real numbers q >= 1 for which only one sequence (c(i)) of integers 0 <= c(i) <= q satisfies the equality Sigma(infinity)(i= 1) ciq(-i) =1. We show that the set of algebraic numbers in U is dense in the closure (U) over bar of U.
Universal Algebra Applied to Hom-Associative Algebras, and More
Hellström, Lars; Makhlouf, Abdenacer; Silvestrov, Sergei D.
2014-01-01
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the universal algebra theory of hom-algebras. This kind of algebra involves a linear map which twists the usual identities. We focus on hom-associative algebras and hom-Lie algebras for which we review the main results. We discuss the envelopment problem, operads, and the Diamond Lemma; the usual tools have to be adapted to this new situation. Moreover we study Hilbert series for the hom-associative operad and free algebra, and describe them up to total...

Full Text Available A novel algebraic topology approach to supersymmetry (SUSY and symmetry breaking in quantum field and quantum gravity theories is presented with a view to developing a wide range of physical applications. These include: controlled nuclear fusion and other nuclear reaction studies in quantum chromodynamics, nonlinear physics at high energy densities, dynamic Jahn-Teller effects, superfluidity, high temperature superconductors, multiple scattering by molecular systems, molecular or atomic paracrystal structures, nanomaterials, ferromagnetism in glassy materials, spin glasses, quantum phase transitions and supergravity. This approach requires a unified conceptual framework that utilizes extended symmetries and quantum groupoid, algebroid and functorial representations of non-Abelian higher dimensional structures pertinent to quantized spacetime topology and state space geometry of quantum operator algebras. Fourier transforms, generalized Fourier-Stieltjes transforms, and duality relations link, respectively, the quantum groups and quantum groupoids with their dual algebraic structures; quantum double constructions are also discussed in this context in relation to quasi-triangular, quasi-Hopf algebras, bialgebroids, Grassmann-Hopf algebras and higher dimensional algebra. On the one hand, this quantum algebraic approach is known to provide solutions to the quantum Yang-Baxter equation. On the other hand, our novel approach to extended quantum symmetries and their associated representations is shown to be relevant to locally covariant general relativity theories that are consistent with either nonlocal quantum field theories or local bosonic (spin models with the extended quantum symmetry of entangled, 'string-net condensed' (ground states.
Octonionic M-theory and D=11 Generalized Conformal and Superconformal Algebras
Lukierski, J
2003-01-01
Following [1] we further apply the octonionic structure to supersymmetric D=11 $M$-theory. We consider the octonionic $2^{n+1} \\times 2^{n+1}$ Dirac matrices describing the sequence of Clifford algebras with signatures ($9+n,n$) ($n=0,1,2, ...$) and derive the identities following from the octonionic multiplication table. The case $n=1$ ($4\\times 4$ octonion-valued matrices) is used for the description of the D=11 octonionic $M$-superalgebra with 52 real bosonic charges; the $n=2$ case ($8 \\times 8$ octonion-valued matrices) for the D=11 conformal $M$-algebra with 232 real bosonic charges. The octonionic structure is described explicitly for $n=1$ by the relations between the 512 Abelian O(10,1) tensorial charges $Z_\\mu$, $Z_{\\mu\

Linear algebra is one of the central disciplines in mathematics. A student of pure mathematics must know linear algebra if he is to continue with modern algebra or functional analysis. Much of the mathematics now taught to engineers and physicists requires it.This well-known and highly regarded text makes the subject accessible to undergraduates with little mathematical experience. Written mainly for students in physics, engineering, economics, and other fields outside mathematics, the book gives the theory of matrices and applications to systems of linear equations, as well as many related t

Introduction to the theory of abstract algebras
Pierce, Richard S
2014-01-01
Intended for beginning graduate-level courses, this text introduces various aspects of the theory of abstract algebra. The book is also suitable as independent reading for interested students at that level as well as a primary source for a one-semester course that an instructor may supplement to expand to a full year. Author Richard S.

Representation Theory of Analytic Holonomy C* Algebras
Ashtekar, Abhay
2008-01-01
Integral calculus on the space of gauge equivalent connections is developed. Loops, knots, links and graphs feature prominently in this description. The framework is well--suited for quantization of diffeomorphism invariant theories of connections. The general setting is provided by the abelian C* algebra of functions on the quotient space of connections generated by Wilson loops (i.e., by the traces of holonomies of connections around closed loops). The representation theory of this algebra leads to an interesting and powerful "duality" between gauge-equivalence classes of connections and certain equivalence classes of closed loops. In particular, regular measures on (a suitable completion of) connections/gauges are in 1-1 correspondence with certain functions of loops and diffeomorphism invariant measures correspond to (generalized) knot and link invariants. By carrying out a non-linear extension of the theory of cylindrical measures on topological vector spaces, a faithful, diffeomorphism invariant measure...
Nekrasov and Argyres-Douglas theories in spherical Hecke algebra representation
Rim, Chaiho
2016-01-01
AGT conjecture connects Nekrasov instanton partition function of 4D quiver gauge theory with 2D Liouville conformal blocks. We re-investigate this connection using the central extension of spherical Hecke algebra in q-coordinate representation, q being the instanton expansion parameter. Based on AFLT basis together with Matsuo's interwiner we construct gauge conformal state and demonstrate its equivalence to the Liouville conformal state with careful attention to the proper scaling behavior of the state. Using the colliding limit of regular states, we obtain the formal expression of irregular conformal states corresponding to Argyres-Douglas theory which involves summation of functions over Young diagrams.
Group actions on C*-algebras, 3-cocycles and quantum field theory
Carey, A. L.; Grundling, H.; Raeburn, I.; Sutherland, C.
1995-03-01
We study group extensions Δ→Γ→Ω, where Γ acts on a C*-algebra A. Given a twisted covariant representation π, V of the pair A, Δ we construct 3-cocycles on Ω with values in the centre of the group generated by V(Δ). These 3-cocycles are obstructions to the existence of an extension of Ω by V(Δ) which acts on A compatibly with Γ. The main theorems of the paper introduce a subsidiary invariant Λ which classifies actions of Γ on V(Δ) and in terms of which a necessary and sufficient condition for the the cohomology class of the 3-cocycle to be non-trivial may be formulated. Examples are provided which show how non-trivial 3-cocycles may be realised. The framework we choose to exhibit these essentially mathematical results is influenced by anomalous gauge field theories. We show how to interpret our results in that setting in two ways, one motivated by an algebraic approach to constrained dynamics and the other by the descent equation approach to constructing cocycles on gauge groups. In order to make comparisons with the usual approach to cohomology in gauge theory we conclude with a Lie algebra version of the invariant Λ and the 3-cocycle.
Number theory meets high energy physics
Todorov, Ivan
2017-03-01
Feynman amplitudes in perturbative quantum field theory are being expressed in terms of an algebra of functions, extending the familiar logarithms, and associated numbers— periods. The study of these functions (including hyperlogarithms) and numbers (like the multiple zeta values), that dates back to Leibniz and Euler, has attracted anew the interest of algebraic geometers and number theorists during the last decades. The two originally independent developments are recently coming together in an unlikely collaboration between particle physics and what were regarded as the most abstruse branches of mathematics.
On n-ary algebras, branes and poly-vector gauge theories in noncommutative Clifford spaces
Castro, Carlos
2010-09-01
In this paper, poly-vector-valued gauge field theories in noncommutative Clifford spaces are presented. They are based on noncommutative (but associative) star products that require the use of the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula. Using these star products allows the construction of actions for noncommutative p-branes (branes moving in noncommutative spaces). Noncommutative Clifford-space gravity as a poly-vector-valued gauge theory of twisted diffeomorphisms in Clifford spaces would require quantum Hopf algebraic deformations of Clifford algebras. We proceed with the study of n-ary algebras and find an important relationship among the n-ary commutators of the noncommuting spacetime coordinates [X1, X2, ..., Xn] with the poly-vector-valued coordinates X123sdotsdotsdotn in noncommutative Clifford spaces given by [X1, X2, ..., Xn] = n!X123sdotsdotsdotn. The large N limit of n-ary commutators of n hyper-matrices {\\bf X}_{i_1 i_2 \\cdots i_n} leads to Eguchi-Schild p-brane actions for p + 1 = n. A noncomutative n-ary • product of n functions is constructed which is a generalization of the binary star product * of two functions and is associated with the deformation quantization of n-ary structures and deformations of the Nambu-Poisson brackets.
Field Theory on Noncommutative Space-Time and the Deformed Virasoro Algebra
Chaichian, Masud; Presnajder, P
2000-01-01
First we briefly describe the link between the Virasoro algebra and the free scalar field on a two-dimensional space-time given as a standard commutative cylinder, and in the Euclidean version on a complex plane. The field-theoretical model generalized then to the noncommutative cylinder leads to discrete time-evolution. Its Euclidean version is shown to be equivalent to a model on a complex $q$-plane. There is a direct link between the model on a noncommutative cylinder and the deformed Virasoro algebra suggested earlier, which describes the symmetry of the theory. The problems with the supersymmetric extension of the model on a noncommutative super-space are briefly discussed.
A note on Quarks and numbers theory
Hage-Hassan, Mehdi
2013-01-01
We express the basis vectors of Cartan fundamental representations of unitary groups by binary numbers. We determine the expression of Gel'fand basis of SU (3) based on the usual subatomic quarks notations and we represent it by binary numbers. By analogy with the mesons and quarks we find a new property of prime numbers.

S-duality and the prepotential in N={2}^{star } theories (I): the ADE algebras
Billó, M.; Frau, M.; Fucito, F.; Lerda, A.; Morales, J. F.
2015-11-01
The prepotential of N={2}^{star } supersymmetric theories with unitary gauge groups in an Ω background satisfies a modular anomaly equation that can be recursively solved order by order in an expansion for small mass. By requiring that S-duality acts on the prepotential as a Fourier transform we generalise this result to N={2}^{star } theories with gauge algebras of the D and E type and show that their prepotentials can be written in terms of quasi-modular forms of SL(2, {Z}) . The results are checked against microscopic multi-instanton calculus based on localization for the A and D series and reproduce the known 1-instanton prepotential of the pure N=2 theories for any gauge group of ADE type. Our results can also be used to obtain the multi-instanton terms in the exceptional theories for which the microscopic instanton calculus and the ADHM construction are not available.

We introduce a true orbit generation method enabling exact simulations of dynamical systems defined by arbitrary-dimensional piecewise linear fractional maps, including piecewise linear maps, with rational coefficients. This method can generate sufficiently long true orbits which reproduce typical behaviors (inherent behaviors) of these systems, by properly selecting algebraic numbers in accordance with the dimension of the target system, and involving only integer arithmetic. By applying our method to three dynamical systems—that is, the baker's transformation, the map associated with a modified Jacobi-Perron algorithm, and an open flow system—we demonstrate that it can reproduce their typical behaviors that have been very difficult to reproduce with conventional simulation methods. In particular, for the first two maps, we show that we can generate true orbits displaying the same statistical properties as typical orbits, by estimating the marginal densities of their invariant measures. For the open flow system, we show that an obtained true orbit correctly converges to the stable period-1 orbit, which is inherently possessed by the system.

Niederreiter, Harald
2015-01-01
This textbook effectively builds a bridge from basic number theory to recent advances in applied number theory. It presents the first unified account of the four major areas of application where number theory plays a fundamental role, namely cryptography, coding theory, quasi-Monte Carlo methods, and pseudorandom number generation, allowing the authors to delineate the manifold links and interrelations between these areas. Number theory, which Carl-Friedrich Gauss famously dubbed the queen of mathematics, has always been considered a very beautiful field of mathematics, producing lovely results and elegant proofs. While only very few real-life applications were known in the past, today number theory can be found in everyday life: in supermarket bar code scanners, in our cars’ GPS systems, in online banking, etc. Starting with a brief introductory course on number theory in Chapter 1, which makes the book more accessible for undergraduates, the authors describe the four main application areas in Chapters...
Dimer models and Calabi-Yau algebras
Broomhead, Nathan
2008-01-01
In this thesis we study dimer models, as introduced in string theory, which give a way of writing down a class of non-commutative `superpotential' algebras. Some examples are 3-dimensional Calabi-Yau algebras, as defined by Ginzburg, and some are not. We consider two types of `consistency' condition on dimer models, and show that a `geometrically consistent' model is `algebraically consistent'. Finally we prove that the algebras obtained from algebraically consistent dimer models are 3-dimensional Calabi-Yau algebras.

An adventurer's guide to number theory
Friedberg, Richard
1995-01-01
In this delightful guide, a noted mathematician and teacher offers a witty, historically oriented introduction to number theory, dealing with properties of numbers and with numbers as abstract concepts. Written for readers with an understanding of arithmetic and beginning algebra, the book presents the classical discoveries of number theory, including the work of Pythagoras, Euclid, Diophantus, Fermat, Euler, Lagrange and Gauss.Unlike many authors, however, Mr. Friedberg encourages students to think about the imaginative, playful qualities of numbers as they consider such subjects as primes
Semi-Hopf Algebra and Supersymmetry
Gunara, Bobby Eka
1999-01-01
We define a semi-Hopf algebra which is more general than a Hopf algebra. Then we construct the supersymmetry algebra via the adjoint action on this semi-Hopf algebra. As a result we have a supersymmetry theory with quantum gauge group, i.e., quantised enveloping algebra of a simple Lie algebra. For the example, we construct the Lagrangian N=1 and N=2 supersymmetry.
Hopf and Frobenius algebras in conformal field theory
Singh, Sukreet
With the current rapid depletion of non-renewable resources to generate power, energy conservation and on site generation have become the most critical aspects of the equation. Buildings should be so designed or retrofitted in order to generate its own electricity and cater to its own demand. This thesis looks as the ways in which we can do a post occupancy analysis of an existing institutional building of about 95,000 square feet that was built in 1960's in order to reduce usage and approach a Zero Net Energy goal. This case study building is Von Kleinsmid Centre (VKC) which is located at the heart of USC (University of Southern California). It is challenging to retrofit an existing institutional building because of its complexity and make it achieve a 'Zero Net Energy' goal. All the roadblocks, real life delays, software limitations that had to be overcome to achieve this result are explained in this thesis. The Zero Net Energy goal was achieved by calibrating energy model to the utility data of the building, providing various energy efficiency measures and generating on-site electricity.

Globality means here that we use Krichever-Novikov algebras of gauge and conformal symmetries (i.e. algebras of global symmetries) instead of loop and Virasoro algebras (which are local in this context). The elements of this global approach are described in Part I. In the present paper we give the ...
E-Theory for C*-algebras over topological spaces
Dadarlat, Marius
2009-01-01
We define E-theory for separable C*-algebras over second countable topological spaces and establish its basic properties. This includes an approximation theorem that relates the E-theory over a general space to the E-theories over finite approximations to this space. We obtain effective criteria for determining the invertibility of E-theory elements over possibly infinite-dimensional spaces. Furthermore, we prove a Universal Multicoefficient Theorem for C*-algebras over totally disconnected metrisable compact spaces.

In this respect, statistical control generalizes linear-quadratic-Gaussian and H-infinity control. Part II addresses algebraic systems th

Full Text Available We introduce the category of singular 2-dimensional cobordisms and show that it admits a completely algebraic description as the free symmetric monoidal category on a twin Frobenius algebra, by providing a description of this category in terms of generators and relations. A twin Frobenius algebra (C,W,z,z∗ consists of a commutative Frobenius algebra C, a symmetric Frobenius algebra W, and an algebra homomorphism z:C→W with dual z∗:W→C, satisfying some extra conditions. We also introduce a generalized 2-dimensional Topological Quantum Field Theory defined on singular 2-dimensional cobordisms and show that it is equivalent to a twin Frobenius algebra in a symmetric monoidal category.

We further explore the implications of our framework in [arXiv:1301.1977, arXiv:1309.4775], and physically derive, from the principle that the spacetime BPS spectra of string-dual M-theory compactifications ought to be equivalent, (i) a 5d AGT correspondence for any compact Lie group, (ii) a 5d and 6d AGT correspondence on ALE space of type ADE, and (iii) identities between the ordinary, q-deformed and elliptic affine W-algebras associated with the 4d, 5d and 6d AGT correspondence, respectively, which also define a quantum geometric Langlands duality and its higher analogs formulated by Feigin-Frenkel-Reshetikhin in [3,4]. As an offshoot, we are led to the sought-after connection between the gauge-theoretic realization of the geometric Langlands correspondence by Kapustin-Witten [5,6] and its algebraic CFT formulation by Beilinson-Drinfeld [7], where one can also understand Wilson and 't Hooft-Hecke line operators in 4d gauge theory as monodromy loop operators in 2d CFT, for example. In turn, this will allow ...
Boundedly controlled topology foundations of algebraic topology and simple homotopy theory
Anderson, Douglas R
1988-01-01
Several recent investigations have focused attention on spaces and manifolds which are non-compact but where the problems studied have some kind of "control near infinity". This monograph introduces the category of spaces that are "boundedly controlled" over the (usually non-compact) metric space Z. It sets out to develop the algebraic and geometric tools needed to formulate and to prove boundedly controlled analogues of many of the standard results of algebraic topology and simple homotopy theory. One of the themes of the book is to show that in many cases the proof of a standard result can be easily adapted to prove the boundedly controlled analogue and to provide the details, often omitted in other treatments, of this adaptation. For this reason, the book does not require of the reader an extensive background. In the last chapter it is shown that special cases of the boundedly controlled Whitehead group are strongly related to lower K-theoretic groups, and the boundedly controlled theory is compared to Sie...
Infinite Dimensional Free Algebra and the Forms of the Master Field
Halpern, M B
1999-01-01
We find an infinite dimensional free algebra which lives at large N in any SU(N)-invariant action or Hamiltonian theory of bosonic matrices. The natural basis of this algebra is a free-algebraic generalization of Chebyshev polynomials and the dual basis is closely related to the planar connected parts. This leads to a number of free-algebraic forms of the master field including an algebraic derivation of the Gopakumar-Gross form. For action theories, these forms of the master field immediately give a number of new free-algebraic packagings of the planar Schwinger-Dyson equations.

We introduce a new class of representations of the cohomological Hall algebras of Kontsevich and Soibelman which we call cohomological Hall modules, or CoHM for short. These representations are constructed from self-dual representations of a quiver with contravariant involution $\\sigma$ and provide a mathematical model for the space of BPS states in orientifold string theory. We use the CoHM to define a generalization of cohomological Donaldson-Thomas theory of quivers which allows the quiver representations to have orthogonal and symplectic structure groups. The associated invariants are called orientifold Donaldson-Thomas invariants. We prove the integrality conjecture for orientifold Donaldson-Thomas invariants of $\\sigma$-symmetric quivers. We also formulate precise conjectures regarding the geometric meaning of these invariants and the freeness of the CoHM of a $\\sigma$-symmetric quiver. We prove the freeness conjecture for disjoint union quivers, loop quivers and the affine Dynkin quiver of type $\\widet...
Residue number systems theory and applications
Mohan, P V Ananda
2016-01-01
This new and expanded monograph improves upon Mohan's earlier book, Residue Number Systems (Springer, 2002) with a state of the art treatment of the subject. Replete with detailed illustrations and helpful examples, this book covers a host of cutting edge topics such as the core function, the quotient function, new Chinese Remainder theorems, and large integer operations. It also features many significant applications to practical communication systems and cryptography such as FIR filters and elliptic curve cryptography. Starting with a comprehensive introduction to the basics and leading up to current research trends that are not yet widely distributed in other publications, this book will be of interest to both researchers and students alike.

Full Text Available Courseware have an important role in the achievement of the objectives of education. Nevertheless, it does not mean any learning resources can be used for a type of learning. The teacher should provide and develop materials appropriate to the characteristics and the social environment of its student. Number Theory courses is one of the basic subjects that would be a prerequisite for courses at the next level, such as Linear Algebra, Complex Analysis, Real Analysis, Transformation Geometry, and Algebra Structure. Thus, the student’s understanding about the essential concepts that exist in this course will determine their success in studying subjects that mentioned above. In trying to understand most of the topics in Number Theory required the abilities of mathematical argumentation and representation. The ability of argumentation is required in studying the topic of complex number system, special operations, mathematical induction, congruence and divisibility. Ability representation especially verbal representations and symbols required by almost all the topics in this course. The purpose of this paper is to describe the development of teaching and learning Number Theory materials which facilitate students to develop the ability of mathematical argumentation and representation. The model used is a Thiagarajan development model consisting phases of defining, planning, development, and deployment. This paper is restricted to the analysis of the results of the materials validation from number theory experts.

On algebraic structure of the set of prime numbers
Zahedi, Ramin
2012-01-01
The set of prime numbers has been analyzed, based on their algebraic and arithmetical structure. Here by obtaining a sort of linear formula for the set of prime numbers, they are redefined and identified; under a systematic procedure it has been shown that the set of prime numbers is combinations (unions and intersections) of some subsets of natural numbers, with more primary structures. In fact generally, the logical essence of obtained formula for prime numbers is similar to formula 2n - 1 ...
Estimation of the Bezout number for piecewise algebraic curve
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
WANG; Renhong(王仁宏); XU; Zhiqiang(许志强)
2003-01-01
A piecewise algebraic curve is a curve determined by the zero set of a bivariate spline function.In this paper, a conjecture on triangulation is confirmed. The relation between the piecewise linear algebraiccurve and four-color conjecture is also presented. By Morgan-Scott triangulation, we will show the instabilityof Bezout number of piecewise algebraic curves. By using the combinatorial optimization method, an upperbound of the Bezout number defined as the maximum finite number of intersection points of two piecewisealgebraic curves is presented.
W-Infinity Algebras from Noncommutative Chern-Simons Theory
Pinzul, A N
2003-01-01
We examine Chern-Simons theory written on a noncommutative plane with a `hole', and show that the algebra of observables is a nonlinear deformation of the $w_\\infty$ algebra. The deformation depends on the level (the coefficient in the Chern-Simons action), which was identified recently with the inverse filling fraction in the fractional quantum Hall effect.
Combinatorial Hopf Algebras in Quantum Field Theory I
Figueroa, Héctor; Gracia-Bondía, José M.
This paper stands at the interface between combinatorial Hopf algebra theory and renormalization theory. Its plan is as follows: Sec. 1.1 is the introduction, and contains an elementary invitation to the subject as well. The rest of Sec. 1 is devoted to the basics of Hopf algebra theory and examples in ascending level of complexity. Section 2 turns around the all-important Faà di Bruno Hopf algebra. Section 2.1 contains a first, direct approach to it. Section 2.2 gives applications of the Faà di Bruno algebra to quantum field theory and Lagrange reversion. Section 2.3 rederives the related Connes-Moscovici algebras. In Sec. 3, we turn to the Connes-Kreimer Hopf algebras of Feynman graphs and, more generally, to incidence bialgebras. In Sec. 3.1, we describe the first. Then in Sec. 3.2, we give a simple derivation of (the properly combinatorial part of) Zimmermann's cancellation-free method, in its original diagrammatic form. In Sec. 3.3, general incidence algebras are introduced, and the Faà di Bruno bialgebras are described as incidence bialgebras. In Sec. 3.4, deeper lore on Rota's incidence algebras allows us to reinterpret Connes-Kreimer algebras in terms of distributive lattices. Next, the general algebraic-combinatorial proof of the cancellation-free formula for antipodes is ascertained. The structure results for commutative Hopf algebras are found in Sec. 4. An outlook section very briefly reviews the coalgebraic aspects of quantization and the Rota-Baxter map in renormalization.
Cyclic structures in algebraic (co)homology theories
Kowalzig, Niels
2010-01-01
This note discusses the cyclic cohomology of a left Hopf algebroid ($\\times_A$-Hopf algebra) with coefficients in a right module-left comodule, defined using a straightforward generalisation of the original operators given by Connes and Moscovici for Hopf algebras. Lie-Rinehart homology is a special case of this theory. A generalisation of cyclic duality that makes sense for arbitrary para-cyclic objects yields a dual homology theory. The twisted cyclic homology of an associative algebra provides an example of this dual theory that uses coefficients that are not necessarily stable anti Yetter-Drinfel'd modules.
Division algebras and supersymmetry
Baez, John C
2009-01-01
Supersymmetry is deeply related to division algebras. Nonabelian Yang--Mills fields minimally coupled to massless spinors are supersymmetric if and only if the dimension of spacetime is 3, 4, 6 or 10. The same is true for the Green--Schwarz superstring. In both cases, supersymmetry relies on the vanishing of a certain trilinear expression involving a spinor field. The reason for this, in turn, is the existence of normed division algebras in dimensions 1, 2, 4 and 8: the real numbers, complex numbers, quaternions and octonions. Here we provide a self-contained account of how this works.

Noncommutative field theory on Yang's quantized space-time algebra (YSTA) is studied. It gives a theoretical framework to reformulate the matrix model as quantum mechanics of $D_0$ branes in a Lorentz-covariant form. The so-called kinetic term ($\\sim {\\hat{P_i}}^2)$ and potential term ($\\sim {[\\hat{X_i},\\hat{X_j}]}^2)$ of $D_0$ branes in the matrix model are described now in terms of Casimir operator of $SO(D,1)$, a subalgebra of the primary algebra $SO(D+1,1)$ which underlies YSTA with two contraction- parameters, $\\lambda$ and $R$. $D$-dimensional noncommutative space-time and momentum operators $\\hat{X_\\mu}$ and $\\hat{P_\\mu}$ in YSTA show a distinctive spectral structure, that is, space-components $\\hat{X_i}$ and $\\hat{P_i}$ have discrete eigenvalues, and time-components $\\hat{X_0}$ and $\\hat{P_0}$ continuous eigenvalues, consistently with Lorentz-covariance. According to the method of Lorentz-covariant Moyal star product proper to YSTA, the field equation of $D_0$ brane on YSTA is derived in a nontrivial ...
Dilation Theory for Rank 2 Graph Algebras
Davidson, Kenneth R; Yang Di Lian
2007-01-01
An analysis is given of $*$-representations of rank 2 single vertex graphs. We develop dilation theory for the non-selfadjoint algebras $\\A_\\theta$ and $\\A_u$ which are associated with the commutation relation permutation $\\theta$ of a 2 graph and, more generally, with commutation relations determined by a unitary matrix $u$ in $M_m(\\bC) \\otimes M_n(\\bC)$. We show that a defect free row contractive representation has a unique minimal dilation to a $*$-representation and we provide a new simpler proof of Solel's row isometric dilation of two $u$-commuting row contractions. Furthermore it is shown that the C*-envelope of $\\A_u$ is the generalised Cuntz algebra $\\O_{X_u}$ for the product system $X_u$ of $u$; that for $m\\geq 2 $ and $n \\geq 2 $ contractive representations of $\\Ath$ need not be completely contractive; and that the universal tensor algebra $\\T_+(X_u)$ need not be isometrically isomorphic to $\\A_u$.

We explore the $S$-expansion framework to analyze freedom in closing the multiplication tables for the abelian semigroups. Including possibility of the zero element in the resonant decomposition and relating the Lorentz generator with the semigroup identity element leads to the wide class of the expanded Lie algebras introducing interesting modifications to the gauge gravity theories. Among the results we find not only all the Maxwell algebras of type $\\mathfrak{B}_m$, $\\mathfrak{C}_m$, and recently introduced $\\mathfrak{D}_m$, but we also produce new examples. We discuss some prospects concerning further enlarging the algebras and provide all necessary constituents for constructing the gravity actions based on the obtained results.
Number theory and modular forms papers in memory of Robert A Rankin
Ono, Ken
2003-01-01
Robert A. Rankin, one of the world's foremost authorities on modular forms and a founding editor of The Ramanujan Journal, died on January 27, 2001, at the age of 85. Rankin had broad interests and contributed fundamental papers in a wide variety of areas within number theory, geometry, analysis, and algebra. To commemorate Rankin's life and work, the editors have collected together 25 papers by several eminent mathematicians reflecting Rankin's extensive range of interests within number theory. Many of these papers reflect Rankin's primary focus in modular forms. It is the editors' fervent hope that mathematicians will be stimulated by these papers and gain a greater appreciation for Rankin's contributions to mathematics. This volume would be an inspiration to students and researchers in the areas of number theory and modular forms.
Coproduct and star product in field theories on Lie-algebra noncommutative space-times
Amelino-Camelia, Giovanni; Arzano, Michele
2002-04-01
We propose a new approach to field theory on κ-Minkowski noncommutative space-time, a popular example of Lie-algebra space-time. Our proposal is essentially based on the introduction of a star product, a technique which is proving to be very fruitful in analogous studies of canonical noncommutative space-times, such as the ones recently found to play a role in the description of certain string-theory backgrounds. We find to be incorrect the expectation, previously reported in the literature, that the lack of symmetry of the κ-Poincaré coproduct should lead to interaction vertices that are not symmetric under exchanges of the momenta of identical particles entering the relevant processes. We show that in κ-Minkowski the coproduct and the star product must indeed treat momenta in a nonsymmetric way, but the overall structure of interaction vertices is symmetric under exchange of identical particles. We also show that in κ-Minkowski field theories it is convenient to introduce the concepts of ``planar'' and ``nonplanar'' Feynman loop diagrams, again in close analogy with the corresponding concepts previously introduced in the study of field theories in canonical noncommutative space-times.
NATO Advanced Study Institute on Structural Theory of Automata, Semigroups and Universal Algebra
Rosenberg, Ivo; Goldstein, Martin
2005-01-01
Several of the contributions to this volume bring forward many mutually beneficial interactions and connections between the three domains of the title. Developing them was the main purpose of the NATO ASI summerschool held in Montreal in 2003. Although some connections, for example between semigroups and automata, were known for a long time, developing them and surveying them in one volume is novel and hopefully stimulating for the future. Another aspect is the emphasis on the structural theory of automata that studies ways to contstruct big automata from small ones. The volume also has contributions on top current research or surveys in the three domains. One contribution even links clones of universal algebra with the computational complexity of computer science. Three contributions introduce the reader to research in the former East block.

Symmetric linear systems - An application of algebraic systems theory
Hazewinkel, M.; Martin, C.
1983-01-01
Dynamical systems which contain several identical subsystems occur in a variety of applications ranging from command and control systems and discretization of partial differential equations, to the stability augmentation of pairs of helicopters lifting a large mass. Linear models for such systems display certain obvious symmetries. In this paper, we discuss how these symmetries can be incorporated into a mathematical model that utilizes the modern theory of algebraic systems. Such systems are inherently related to the representation theory of algebras over fields. We will show that any control scheme which respects the dynamical structure either implicitly or explicitly uses the underlying algebra.

Wild kernels for higher K-theory of division and semi-simple algebras
Quo Xue Jun
2003-01-01
Let SIGMA be a semi-simple algebra over a number field F. In this paper, we prove that for all n >= 0, the wild kernel WK sub n (SIGMA):Ker(K sub n (SIGMA) -> PI sub f sub i sub n sub i sub t sub e subupsilon K sub n (SIGMA subupsilon)) is contained in the torsion part of the image of the natural homomorphism K sub n (LAMBDA) -> K sub n (SIGMA), where LAMBDA is a maximal order in SIGMA. In particular, WK sub n (SIGMA) is finite. In the process, we prove that if LAMBDA is a maximal order in a central division algebra D over F, then the kernel of the reduction map K sub 2 sub n sub - sub 1 (LAMBDA) -> suppi sup subupsilon PI sub f sub i sub n sub i sub t sub e subupsilon K sub 2 sub n sub - sub 1 (d subupsilon) is finite. In paragraph 3 we investigate the connections between WK sub n (D) and div(K sub n (D)) and prove that divK sub 2 (SIGMA) is a subset of WK sub 2 (SIGMA); if the index of D is square free, then div(K sub 2 (D)) approx = div(K sub 2 (F)), WK sub 2 (F) approx = WK sub 2 (D) and vertical bar WK s...
Three Hopf algebras and their common simplicial and categorical background
Gálvez-Carrillo, Imma; Tonks, Andrew
2016-01-01
We consider three a priori totally different setups for Hopf algebras from number theory, mathematical physics and algebraic topology. These are the Hopf algebras of Goncharov for multiple zeta values, that of Connes--Kreimer for renormalization, and a Hopf algebra constructed by Baues to study double loop spaces. We show that these examples can be successively unified by considering simplicial objects, cooperads with multiplication and Feynman categories at the ultimate level. These considerations open the door to new constructions and reinterpretation of known constructions in a large common framework.
Integrable highest weight modules over affine superalgebras and number theory
Kac, V G
1994-01-01
In the first part of the paper we give the denominator identity for all simple finite-dimensional Lie super algebras \\frak g\\/ with a non-degenerate invariant bilinear form. We give also a character and (super) dimension formulas for all finite-dimensional irreducible \\frak g\\/-modules of atypicality \\leq 1\\/ . In the second part of the paper we give the denominator identity for the affine superalgebras \\hat{\\frak g}\\/ associated to \\frak g\\/. Specializations of this identity give almost all old and many new formulas for the number of representations of an integer as sums of squares and sums of triangular numbers. At the end, we introduce the notion of an integrable \\hat{\\frak g}\\/-module and give a classification of irreducible integrable highest weight \\hat{\\frak g}\\/-modules.
Algebraic differential calculus for gauge theories

Landi, G.; Marmo, G. (Naples Univ. (Italy). Dipt. di Scienze Fisiche Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Naples (Italy))
1990-12-01
The guiding idea in this paper is that, from the point of view of physics, functions and fields are more important than the (space time) manifold over which they are defined. The line pursued in these notes belongs to the general framework of ideas that replaces the space M by the ring of functions on it. Our essential observation, underlying this work, is that much of mathematical physics requires only a few differential operators (Lie derivative, d, {delta}) operating on modules of sections of suitable bundles. A connection (=gauge potential) can be described by a lift of vector fields from the base to the total space of a principal bundle. Much of the information can be encoded in the lift without reference to the bundle structures. In this manner, one arrives at an 'algebraic differential calculus' and its graded generalization that we are going to discuss. We are going to give an exposition of 'algebraic gauge theory' in both ungraded and graded versions. We show how to deal with the essential features of electromagnetism, Dirac, Kaluza-Klein and 't Hooft-Polyakov monopoles. We also show how to break the symmetry from SU(2) to U(1) without Higgs field. We briefly show how to deal with tests particles in external fields and with the Lagrangian formulation of field theories. (orig./HSI).

On the base of the distinction between covariant and contravariant metric tensor components, a new (multivariable) cubic algebraic equation for reparametrization invariance of the gravitational Lagrangian has been derived and parametrized with complicated non - elliptic functions, depending on the (elliptic) Weierstrass function and its derivative. This is different from standard algebraic geometry, where only two-dimensional cubic equations are parametrized with elliptic functions and not multivariable ones. Physical applications of the approach have been considered in reference to theories with extra dimensions. The s.c. "length function" l(x) has been introduced and found as a solution of quasilinear differential equations in partial derivatives for two different cases of "compactification + rescaling" and "rescaling + compactification". New physically important relations (inequalities) between the parameters in the action are established, which cannot be derived in the case $l=1$ of the standard gravitati...
Diagrammatic Kazhdan-Lusztig theory for the (walled) Brauer algebra
Cox, Anton
2010-01-01
We determine the decomposition numbers for the Brauer and walled Brauer algebra in characteristic zero in terms of certain polynomials associated to cap and curl diagrams (recovering a result of Martin in the Brauer case). We consider a second family of polynomials associated to such diagrams, and use these to determine projective resolutions of the standard modules. We then relate these two families of polynomials to Kazhdan-Lusztig theory via the work of Lascoux-Sch\\"utzenberger and Boe, inspired by work of Brundan and Stroppel in the cap diagram case.

The minimum weight states of the Lipkin model consisting of n single-particle levels and obeying the SU(n) algebra are investigated systematically. The basic idea is to use the SU(2) algebra, which is independent of the SU(n) algebra. This idea has already been presented by the present authors in the case of the conventional Lipkin model consisting of two single-particle levels and obeying the SU(2) algebra. If this idea is followed, the minimum weight states are determined for any fermion number appropriately occupying n single-particle levels. Naturally, the conventional minimum weight state is included: all fermions occupy energetically the lowest single-particle level in the absence of interaction. The cases n=2, 3, 4, and 5 are discussed in some detail.
Quantum gravity, Clifford algebras, fuzzy set theory and the fundamental constants of nature
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
El Naschie, M.S
2004-05-01
In a recent paper entitled 'Quantum gravity from descriptive set theory', published in Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, we considered following the P-adic quantum theory, the possibility of abandoning the Archimedean axiom and introducing a fundamental physical limitation on the smallest length in quantum spacetime. Proceeding that way we arrived at the conclusion that maximising the Hawking-Bekenstein informational content of spacetime makes the existence of a transfinite geometry for physical 'spacetime' plausible or even inevitable. Subsequently we introduced a mathematical description of a transfinite, non-Archimedean geometry using descriptive set theory where a similar conclusion regarding the transfiniteness of quantum spacetime may be drawn from the existence of the Unruh temperature. In particular we introduced a straight forward logarithmic gauge transformation linking, as far as we are aware for the first time, classical gravity with the electroweak via a version of informational entropy. That way we found using {epsilon}{sup ({infinity}}{sup )} and complexity theory that {alpha}-bar{sub G}=(2){sup {alpha}-bar{sub ew}}{sup -1}=1.7x10{sup 38} where {alpha}-bar{sub G} is the dimensionless Newton gravity constant and {alpha}-bar{sub ew}=128 is the fine structure constant at the electroweak unification scale. The present work is concerned with more or less the same category of fundamental questions pertinent to quantum gravity. However we switch our mathematical apparatus to a combination of Clifford algebras and set theory. In doing that, the central and vital role of the work of D. Finkelstein becomes much more tangible and clearer than in most of our previous works.
The concrete theory of numbers: initial numbers and wonderful properties of numbers repunit
Tarasov, Boris V
2007-01-01
In this work initial numbers and repunit numbers have been studied. All numbers have been considered in a decimal notation. The problem of simplicity of initial numbers has been studied. Interesting properties of numbers repunit are proved: $gcd(R_a, R_b) = R_{gcd(a,b)}$; $R_{ab}/(R_aR_b)$ is an integer only if $gcd(a,b) = 1$, where $a\\geq1$, $b\\geq1$ are integers. Dividers of numbers repunit, are researched by a degree of prime number.

These notes are based on a lecture course given by the first author in the Sedano Winter School on K-theory held in Sedano, Spain, on January 22-27th of 2007. They aim at introducing K-theory of C^*-algebras, equivariant K-homology and KK-theory in the context of the Baum-Connes conjecture.
Theory of loop algebra on multi-loop kinematic chains and its application
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
2007-01-01
Based on the mathematic representation of loops of kinematic chains, this paper proposes the " ⊕ " operation of loops and its basic laws and establishes the basic theorem system of the loop algebra of kinematic chains. Then the basis loop set and its determination conditions, and the ways to obtain the crucial perimeter topological graph are presented. Furthermore, the characteristic perimeter topo-logical graph and the characteristic adjacency matrix are also developed. The most important characteristic of this theory is that for a topological graph which is drawn or labeled in any way, both the resulting characteristic perimeter topological graph and the characteristic adjacency matrix obtained through this theory are unique, and each has one-to-one correspondence with its kinematic chain. This character-istic dramatically simplifies the isomorphism identification and establishes a theoretical basis for the numeralization of topological graphs, and paves the way for numeralization and computerization of the structural synthesis and mechanism design further. Finally, this paper also proposes a concise isomorphism identifica-tion method of kinematic chains based on the concept of characteristic adjacency matrix.

From the reviews of the first printing of this book, published as Volume 60 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences: "Between number theory and geometry there have been several stimulating influences, and this book records of these enterprises. This author, who has been at the centre of such research for many years, is one of the best guides a reader can hope for. The book is full of beautiful results, open questions, stimulating conjectures and suggestions where to look for future developments. This volume bears witness of the broad scope of knowledge of the author, and the influence of several people who have commented on the manuscript before publication ... Although in the series of number theory, this volume is on diophantine geometry, and the reader will notice that algebraic geometry is present in every chapter. ... The style of the book is clear. Ideas are well explained, and the author helps the reader to pass by several technicalities. Reading and rereading this book I noticed that the topics ...

7th International Conference on Elementary and Analytic Number Theory
Steuding, Jörn; Steuding, Rasa
2016-01-01
This book collects more than thirty contributions in memory of Wolfgang Schwarz, most of which were presented at the seventh International Conference on Elementary and Analytic Number Theory (ELAZ), held July 2014 in Hildesheim, Germany. Ranging from the theory of arithmetical functions to diophantine problems, to analytic aspects of zeta-functions, the various research and survey articles cover the broad interests of the well-known number theorist and cherished colleague Wolfgang Schwarz (1934-2013), who contributed over one hundred articles on number theory, its history and related fields. Readers interested in elementary or analytic number theory and related fields will certainly find many fascinating topical results among the contributions from both respected mathematicians and up-and-coming young researchers. In addition, some biographical articles highlight the life and mathematical works of Wolfgang Schwarz.

For single-sorted algebras, Fujiwara defined, through the concept of family of basic mapping-formulas, a notion of morphism which generalizes the ordinary notion of homomorphism between algebras and an equivalence relation, the conjugation, on the families of basic mapping-formulas, which corresponds to the relation of inner isomorphism for algebras. In this paper we extend the theory of Fujiwara about morphisms to the many-sorted algebras, by defining the concept of polyderivor between many-sorted signatures, which assigns to basic sorts, words and to formal operations, families of derived terms, and under which the standard signature morphisms, the basic mapping-formulas of Fujiwara, and the derivors of Goguen-Thatcher-Wagner are subsumed. Then, by means of the homomorphisms between B\\'enabou algebras, which are the algebraic counterpart of the finitary many-sorted algebraic theories of B\\'enabou, we define the composition of polyderivors from which we get a corresponding category, isomorphic to the categor...

2001-08-01
A detailed description of the infinite-dimensional Lie algebra of star-gauge transformations in non-commutative Yang-Mills theory is presented. Various descriptions of this algebra are given in terms of inner automorphisms of the underlying deformed algebra of functions on spacetime, of deformed symplectic diffeomorphisms, of the infinite unitary Lie algebra u(∞), and of the C*-algebra of compact operators on a quantum mechanical Hilbert space. The spacetime and string interpretations are also elucidated.

Harmonic functions on groups and Fourier algebras
Chu, Cho-Ho
2002-01-01
This research monograph introduces some new aspects to the theory of harmonic functions and related topics. The authors study the analytic algebraic structures of the space of bounded harmonic functions on locally compact groups and its non-commutative analogue, the space of harmonic functionals on Fourier algebras. Both spaces are shown to be the range of a contractive projection on a von Neumann algebra and therefore admit Jordan algebraic structures. This provides a natural setting to apply recent results from non-associative analysis, semigroups and Fourier algebras. Topics discussed include Poisson representations, Poisson spaces, quotients of Fourier algebras and the Murray-von Neumann classification of harmonic functionals.
A cohomology theory of grading-restricted vertex algebras
Huang, Yi-Zhi
2010-01-01
We introduce a cohomology theory of grading-restricted vertex algebras. To construct the "correct" cohomologies, we consider linear maps from tensor powers of a grading-restricted vertex algebra to "rational functions valued in the algebraic completion of a module for the algebra," instead of linear maps from tensor powers of the algebra to a module for the algebra. One subtle complication arising from such "rational functions valued in the algebraic completion of a module" is that we have to carefully address the issue of convergence when we compose these linear maps with vertex operators. In particular, for each $n\\in \\N$, we have an inverse system $\\{H^{n}_{m}(V, W)\\}_{m\\in \\Z_{+}}$ of $n$-th cohomologies and an additional $n$-th cohomology $H_{\\infty}^{n}(V, W)$ of a grading-restricted vertex algebra $V$ with coefficients in a $V$-module $W$ such that $H_{\\infty}^{n}(V, W)$ is isomorphic to the inverse limit of the inverse system $\\{H^{n}_{m}(V, W)\\}_{m\\in \\Z_{+}}$. In the case of $n=2$, there is an addit...
Algebraic Formulation of the Operatorial Perturbation Theory; 1
Müller, A H; Müller, Ary W. Espinosa; Vásquez, Adelio R. Matamala
1996-01-01
A new totally algebraic formalism based on general, abstract ladder operators has been proposed. This approach heavily grounds in the superoperator formalism of Primas. However it is necessary to introduce many improvements in his formalism. In this regard, it has been introduced a new set of superoperators featured by their algebraic structure. Also, two lemmas and one theorem have been developed in order to algebraically reformulate the theory on more rigorous grounds. Finally, we have been able to build a coherent and self-contained formalism independent on any matricial representation , removing in this way the degeneracy problem .

Monotone complete C*-algebras and generic dynamics
Saitô, Kazuyuki
2015-01-01
This monograph is about monotone complete C*-algebras, their properties and the new classification theory. A self-contained introduction to generic dynamics is also included because of its important connections to these algebras. Our knowledge and understanding of monotone complete C*-algebras has been transformed in recent years. This is a very exciting stage in their development, with much discovered but with many mysteries to unravel. This book is intended to encourage graduate students and working mathematicians to attack some of these difficult questions. Each bounded, upward directed net of real numbers has a limit. Monotone complete algebras of operators have a similar property. In particular, every von Neumann algebra is monotone complete but the converse is false. Written by major contributors to this field, Monotone Complete C*-algebras and Generic Dynamics takes readers from the basics to recent advances. The prerequisites are a grounding in functional analysis, some point set topology and an eleme...

Computer algebra and operators
Fateman, Richard; Grossman, Robert
1989-01-01
The symbolic computation of operator expansions is discussed. Some of the capabilities that prove useful when performing computer algebra computations involving operators are considered. These capabilities may be broadly divided into three areas: the algebraic manipulation of expressions from the algebra generated by operators; the algebraic manipulation of the actions of the operators upon other mathematical objects; and the development of appropriate normal forms and simplification algorithms for operators and their actions. Brief descriptions are given of the computer algebra computations that arise when working with various operators and their actions.

Optical potentials in algebraic scattering theory

Levay, Peter [Institute of Theoretical Physics, Technical University of Budapest, Budapest (Hungary)
1999-02-12
Using the theory of induced representations new realizations for the Lie algebras of the groups SO(2, 1), SO(2, 2), SO(3, 2) are found. The eigenvalue problem of the Casimir operators yield Schroedinger equations with non-Hermitian interaction terms (i.e. optical potentials). For the group SO(2, 2) we have a two-parameter family of (matrix-valued) potentials containing terms of Poeschl-Teller and Gendenshtein type. We calculate the S-matrices for special values of this two-parameter family. In particular we also include a derivation of the S-matrix for the two-dimensional scattering problem on a complex Gendenshtein potential. The canonically transformed realization results in a non-local optical potential. (author)
Prime numbers, quantum field theory and the Goldbach conjecture
Sanchis-Lozano, Miguel-Angel; Navarro-Salas, Jose
2012-01-01
Motivated by the Goldbach and Polignac conjectures in Number Theory, we propose the factorization of a classical non-interacting real scalar field (on a two-cylindrical spacetime) as a product of either two or three (so-called primer) fields whose Fourier expansion exclusively contains prime modes. We undertake the canonical quantization of such primer fields and construct the corresponding Fock space by introducing creation operators $a_p^{\\dag}$ (labeled by prime numbers $p$) acting on the vacuum. The analysis of our model, based on the standard rules of quantum field theory, suggests intriguing connections between different topics in Number Theory, notably the Riemann hypothesis and the Goldbach and Polignac conjectures. Our analysis also suggests that the (non) renormalizability properties of the proposed model could be linked to the possible validity or breakdown of the Goldbach conjecture for large integer numbers.

Permutation Centralizer Algebras and Multi-Matrix Invariants
Mattioli, Paolo
2016-01-01
We introduce a class of permutation centralizer algebras which underly the combinatorics of multi-matrix gauge invariant observables. One family of such non-commutative algebras is parametrised by two integers. Its Wedderburn-Artin decomposition explains the counting of restricted Schur operators, which were introduced in the physics literature to describe open strings attached to giant gravitons and were subsequently used to diagonalize the Gaussian inner product for gauge invariants of 2-matrix models. The structure of the algebra, notably its dimension, its centre and its maximally commuting sub-algebra, is related to Littlewood-Richardson numbers for composing Young diagrams. It gives a precise characterization of the minimal set of charges needed to distinguish arbitrary matrix gauge invariants, which are related to enhanced symmetries in gauge theory. The algebra also gives a star product for matrix invariants. The centre of the algebra allows efficient computation of a sector of multi-matrix correlator...

Algebraic partial Boolean algebras
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Smith, Derek [Math Department, Lafayette College, Easton, PA 18042 (United States)
2003-04-04
Partial Boolean algebras, first studied by Kochen and Specker in the 1960s, provide the structure for Bell-Kochen-Specker theorems which deny the existence of non-contextual hidden variable theories. In this paper, we study partial Boolean algebras which are 'algebraic' in the sense that their elements have coordinates in an algebraic number field. Several of these algebras have been discussed recently in a debate on the validity of Bell-Kochen-Specker theorems in the context of finite precision measurements. The main result of this paper is that every algebraic finitely-generated partial Boolean algebra B(T) is finite when the underlying space H is three-dimensional, answering a question of Kochen and showing that Conway and Kochen's infinite algebraic partial Boolean algebra has minimum dimension. This result contrasts the existence of an infinite (non-algebraic) B(T) generated by eight elements in an abstract orthomodular lattice of height 3. We then initiate a study of higher-dimensional algebraic partial Boolean algebras. First, we describe a restriction on the determinants of the elements of B(T) that are generated by a given set T. We then show that when the generating set T consists of the rays spanning the minimal vectors in a real irreducible root lattice, B(T) is infinite just if that root lattice has an A{sub 5} sublattice. Finally, we characterize the rays of B(T) when T consists of the rays spanning the minimal vectors of the root lattice E{sub 8}.

Quaternionen and Geometric Algebra (Quaternionen und Geometrische Algebra)
Horn, Martin Erik
2007-01-01
In the last one and a half centuries, the analysis of quaternions has not only led to further developments in mathematics but has also been and remains an important catalyst for the further development of theories in physics. At the same time, Hestenes geometric algebra provides a didactically promising instrument to model phenomena in physics mathematically and in a tangible manner. Quaternions particularly have a catchy interpretation in the context of geometric algebra which can be used didactically. The relation between quaternions and geometric algebra is presented with a view to analysing its didactical possibilities.

Rota-Baxter algebras and the Hopf algebra of renormalization
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Ebrahimi-Fard, K.
2006-06-15
Recently, the theory of renormalization in perturbative quantum field theory underwent some exciting new developments. Kreimer discovered an organization of Feynman graphs into combinatorial Hopf algebras. The process of renormalization is captured by a factorization theorem for regularized Hopf algebra characters. Hereby the notion of Rota-Baxter algebras enters the scene. In this work we develop in detail several mathematical aspects of Rota-Baxter algebras as they appear also in other sectors closely related to perturbative renormalization, to wit, for instance multiple-zeta-values and matrix differential equations. The Rota-Baxter picture enables us to present the algebraic underpinning for the Connes-Kreimer Birkhoff decomposition in a concise way. This is achieved by establishing a general factorization theorem for filtered algebras. Which in turn follows from a new recursion formula based on the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula. This allows us to generalize a classical result due to Spitzer to non-commutative Rota-Baxter algebras. The Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff based recursion turns out to be a generalization of Magnus' expansion in numerical analysis to generalized integration operators. We will exemplify these general results by establishing a simple representation of the combinatorics of renormalization in terms of triangular matrices. We thereby recover in the presence of a Rota-Baxter operator the matrix representation of the Birkhoff decomposition of Connes and Kreimer. (orig.)
Combinatorial Hopf algebras in quantum field theory I
Figueroa, H; Figueroa, Hector; Gracia-Bondia, Jose M.
2004-01-01
This manuscript collects and expands for the most part a series of lectures on the interface between combinatorial Hopf algebra theory (CHAT) and renormalization theory, delivered by the second-named author in the framework of the joint mathematical physics seminar of the Universites d'Artois and Lille 1, from late January till mid-February 2003. The plan is as follows: Section 1 is the introduction, and Section 2 contains an elementary invitation to the subject. Sections 3-7 are devoted to the basics of Hopf algebra theory and examples, in ascending level of complexity. Section 8 contains a first, direct approach to the Faa di Bruno Hopf algebra. Section 9 gives applications of that to quantum field theory and Lagrange reversion. Section 10 rederives the Connes-Moscovici algebras. In Section 11 we turn to Hopf algebras of Feynman graphs. Then in Section 12 we give an extremely simple derivation of (the properly combinatorial part of) Zimmermann's method, in its original diagrammatic form. In Section 13 gener...
Prime Numbers, Quantum Field Theory and the Goldbach Conjecture
Sanchis-Lozano, Miguel-Angel; Barbero G., J. Fernando; Navarro-Salas, José
2012-09-01
Motivated by the Goldbach conjecture in number theory and the Abelian bosonization mechanism on a cylindrical two-dimensional space-time, we study the reconstruction of a real scalar field as a product of two real fermion (so-called prime) fields whose Fourier expansion exclusively contains prime modes. We undertake the canonical quantization of such prime fields and construct the corresponding Fock space by introducing creation operators bp\\dag — labeled by prime numbers p — acting on the vacuum. The analysis of our model, based on the standard rules of quantum field theory and the assumption of the Riemann hypothesis, allows us to prove that the theory is not renormalizable. We also comment on the potential consequences of this result concerning the validity or breakdown of the Goldbach conjecture for large integer numbers.

For example, partial differential equations (PDEs) are often formulated as abstract Cauchy ...
Dp-branes, NS5-branes and U-duality from nonabelian (2,0) theory with Lie 3-algebra
Honma, Yoshinori; Shiba, Shotaro
2011-01-01
We derive the super Yang-Mills action of Dp-branes on a torus T^{p-4} from the nonabelian (2,0) theory with Lie 3-algebra. Our realization is based on Lie 3-algebra with pairs of Lorentzian metric generators. The resultant theory then has negative norm modes, but it results in a unitary theory by setting VEV's of these modes. This procedure corresponds to the torus compactification, therefore by taking a transformation which is equivalent to T-duality, the Dp-brane action is obtained. We also study type IIA/IIB NS5-brane and Kaluza-Klein monopole systems by taking other VEV assignments. Such various compactifications can be realized in the nonabelian (2,0) theory, since both longitudinal and transverse directions can be compactified, which is different from the BLG theory. We finally discuss U-duality among these branes, and show that most of the moduli parameters in U-duality group are recovered. Especially in D5-brane case, the whole U-duality relation is properly reproduced.
An invitation to general algebra and universal constructions
Bergman, George M
2015-01-01
Rich in examples and intuitive discussions, this book presents General Algebra using the unifying viewpoint of categories and functors. Starting with a survey, in non-category-theoretic terms, of many familiar and not-so-familiar constructions in algebra (plus two from topology for perspective), the reader is guided to an understanding and appreciation of the general concepts and tools unifying these constructions. Topics include: set theory, lattices, category theory, the formulation of universal constructions in category-theoretic terms, varieties of algebras, and adjunctions. A large number of exercises, from the routine to the challenging, interspersed through the text, develop the reader's grasp of the material, exhibit applications of the general theory to diverse areas of algebra, and in some cases point to outstanding open questions. Graduate students and researchers wishing to gain fluency in important mathematical constructions will welcome this carefully motivated book.
Finite dimensional semigroup quadratic algebras with minimal number of relations
Iyudu, Natalia
2011-01-01
A quadratic semigroup algebra is an algebra over a field given by the generators $x_1,...,x_n$ and a finite set of quadratic relations each of which either has the shape $x_jx_k=0$ or the shape $x_jx_k=x_lx_m$. We prove that a quadratic semigroup algebra given by $n$ generators and $d\\leq \\frac{n^2+n}{4}$ relations is always infinite dimensional. This strengthens the Golod--Shafarevich estimate for the above class of algebras. Our main result however is that for every $n$, there is a finite dimensional quadratic semigroup algebra with $n$ generators and $\\delta_n$ generators, where $\\delta_n$ is the first integer greater than $\\frac{n^2+n}{4}$. This shows that the above Golod-Shafarevich type estimate for semigroup algebras is sharp.

Universal Algebra and Mathematical Logic
Luo, Zhaohua
2011-01-01
In this paper, first-order logic is interpreted in the framework of universal algebra, using the clone theory developed in three previous papers. We first define the free clone T(L, C) of terms of a first order language L over a set C of parameters in a standard way. The free right algebra F(L, C) of formulas over T(L, C) is then generated by atomic formulas. Structures for L over C are represented as perfect valuations of F(L, C), and theories of L are represented as filters of F(L). Finally Godel's completeness theorem and first incompleteness theorem are stated as expected.

C*-Algebras over Topological Spaces: Filtrated K-Theory
Meyer, Ralf
2008-01-01
We define the filtrated K-theory of a C*-algebra over a finite topological space X and explain how to construct a spectral sequence that computes the bivariant Kasparov theory over X in terms of filtrated K-theory. For finite spaces with totally ordered lattice of open subsets, this spectral sequence becomes an exact sequence as in the Universal Coefficient Theorem, with the same consequences for classification. We also exhibit an example where filtrated K-theory is not yet a complete invariant. We describe a space with four points and two C*-algebras over this space in the bootstrap class that have isomorphic filtrated K-theory but are not KK(X)-equivalent. For this particular space, we enrich filtrated K-theory by another K-theory functor, so that there is again a Universal Coefficient Theorem. Thus the enriched filtrated K-theory is a complete invariant for purely infinite, stable C*-algebras with this particular spectrum and belonging to the appropriate bootstrap class.

The aim of these notes is to provide a simple and pedagogical (as much as possible) introduction to what is nowadays commonly called Algebraic Renormalization. As the same itself let it understand, the Algebraic Renormalization gives a systematic set up in order to analyse the quantum extension of a given set of classical symmetries. The framework is purely algebraic, yielding a complete characterization of all possible anomalies and invariant counterterms without making use of any explicit computation of the Feynman diagrams. This goal is achieved by collecting, with the introduction of suitable ghost fields, all the symmetries into a unique operation summarized by a generalized Slavnov-Taylor (or master equation) identity which is the starting point for the quantum analysis. The Slavnov-Taylor identity allows to define a nilpotent operator whose cohomology classes in the space of the integrated local polynomials in the fields and their derivatives with dimensions bounded by power counting give all nontrivial anomalies and counterterms. I other words, the proof of the renormalizability is reduced to the computation of some cohomology classes. (author) 28 refs., 2 figs.

Here I am able to offer three further areas of application: Continuum Mechanics, Economics, and Number Theory. In particular, the critical angle of repose in a continuum model of granular materials is shown to be exactly my matrix maximum turning angle of the stress tensor of the material. The important Sharpe ratio of the Capital Asset Pricing Model is now seen in terms of my antieigenvalue theory. Euclid’s Formula for Pythagorean triples becomes a special case of my operator trigonometry.
Gauge Theories on Open Lie Algebra Noncommutative Spaces
Agarwal, A.; Akant, L.
It is shown that noncommutative spaces, which are quotients of associative algebras by ideals generated by highly nonlinear relations of a particular type, admit extremely simple formulae for deformed or star products. Explicit construction of these star products is carried out. Quantum gauge theories are formulated on these spaces, and the Seiberg-Witten map is worked out in detail.

New applications of categorical methods are connected with new additional structures on categories. One of such structures in representation theory of quantum algebras, the category of Kuznetsov-Smorodinsky-Vilenkin-Smirnov (KSVS) trees, is constructed, whose objects are finite rooted KSVS trees and morphisms generated by the transition from a KSVS tree to another one.

Algebraic Systems and Pushdown Automata
Petre, Ion; Salomaa, Arto
We concentrate in this chapter on the core aspects of algebraic series, pushdown automata, and their relation to formal languages. We choose to follow here a presentation of their theory based on the concept of properness. We introduce in Sect. 2 some auxiliary notions and results needed throughout the chapter, in particular the notions of discrete convergence in semirings and C-cycle free infinite matrices. In Sect. 3 we introduce the algebraic power series in terms of algebraic systems of equations. We focus on interconnections with context-free grammars and on normal forms. We then conclude the section with a presentation of the theorems of Shamir and Chomsky-Schützenberger. We discuss in Sect. 4 the algebraic and the regulated rational transductions, as well as some representation results related to them. Section 5 is dedicated to pushdown automata and focuses on the interconnections with classical (non-weighted) pushdown automata and on the interconnections with algebraic systems. We then conclude the chapter with a brief discussion of some of the other topics related to algebraic systems and pushdown automata.
Permutation centralizer algebras and multimatrix invariants
Mattioli, Paolo; Ramgoolam, Sanjaye
2016-03-01
We introduce a class of permutation centralizer algebras which underly the combinatorics of multimatrix gauge-invariant observables. One family of such noncommutative algebras is parametrized by two integers. Its Wedderburn-Artin decomposition explains the counting of restricted Schur operators, which were introduced in the physics literature to describe open strings attached to giant gravitons and were subsequently used to diagonalize the Gaussian inner product for gauge invariants of two-matrix models. The structure of the algebra, notably its dimension, its center and its maximally commuting subalgebra, is related to Littlewood-Richardson numbers for composing Young diagrams. It gives a precise characterization of the minimal set of charges needed to distinguish arbitrary matrix gauge invariants, which are related to enhanced symmetries in gauge theory. The algebra also gives a star product for matrix invariants. The center of the algebra allows efficient computation of a sector of multimatrix correlators. These generate the counting of a certain class of bicoloured ribbon graphs with arbitrary genus.
Classical algebra its nature, origins, and uses
Cooke, Roger L
2008-01-01
This insightful book combines the history, pedagogy, and popularization of algebra to present a unified discussion of the subject. Classical Algebra provides a complete and contemporary perspective on classical polynomial algebra through the exploration of how it was developed and how it exists today. With a focus on prominent areas such as the numerical solutions of equations, the systematic study of equations, and Galois theory, this book facilitates a thorough understanding of algebra and illustrates how the concepts of modern algebra originally developed from classical algebraic precursors. This book successfully ties together the disconnect between classical and modern algebraand provides readers with answers to many fascinating questions that typically go unexamined, including: What is algebra about? How did it arise? What uses does it have? How did it develop? What problems and issues have occurred in its history? How were these problems and issues resolved? The author answers these questions and more,...
Lower bounds on the class number of algebraic function fields defined over any finite field
Ballet, Stéphane
2011-01-01
We give lower bounds on the number of effective divisors of degree $\\leq g-1$ with respect to the number of places of certain degrees of an algebraic function field of genus $g$ defined over a finite field. We deduce lower bounds and asymptotics for the class number, depending mainly on the number of places of a certain degree. We give examples of towers of algebraic function fields having a large class number.

S-numbers of elementary operators on C*-algebras
Anoussis, M; Todorov, I G
2008-01-01
We study the s-numbers of elementary operators acting on C*-algebras. The main results are the following: If $\\tau$ is any tensor norm and $a,b\\in B(H)$ are such that the sequences $s(a),s(b)$ of their singular numbers belong to a stable Calkin space $J$ then the sequence of approximation numbers of $a\\otimes_{\\tau} b$ belongs to $J$. If $A$ is a C*-algebra, $J$ is a stable Calkin space, $s$ is an s-number function, and $a_i, b_i \\in A,$ $i=1,...,m$ are such that $s(\\pi(a_i)), s(\\pi(b_i)) \\in J$, $i=1,...,m$ for some faithful representation $\\pi$ of $A$ then $s(\\sum_{i=1}^{m} M_{a_i,b_i})\\in J$. The converse implication holds if and only if the ideal of compact elements of $A$ has finite spectrum. We also prove a quantitative version of a result of Ylinen.

An Infinite Dimensional Symmetry Algebra in String Theory
Evans, Mark; Nanopoulos, Dimitri V.; Evans, Mark; Giannakis, Ioannis
1994-01-01
Symmetry transformations of the space-time fields of string theory are generated by certain similarity transformations of the stress-tensor of the associated conformal field theories. This observation is complicated by the fact that, as we explain, many of the operators we habitually use in string theory (such as vertices and currents) have ill-defined commutators. However, we identify an infinite-dimensional subalgebra whose commutators are not singular, and explicitly calculate its structure constants. This constitutes a subalgebra of the gauge symmetry of string theory, although it may act on auxiliary as well as propagating fields. We term this object a {\\it weighted tensor algebra}, and, while it appears to be a distant cousin of the $W$-algebras, it has not, to our knowledge, appeared in the literature before.
Renormalization and Hopf Algebraic Structure of the 5-Dimensional Quartic Tensor Field Theory
Avohou, Remi Cocou; Tanasa, Adrian
2015-01-01
This paper is devoted to the study of renormalization of the quartic melonic tensor model in dimension (=rank) five. We review the perturbative renormalization and the computation of the one loop beta function, confirming the asymptotic freedom of the model. We then define the Connes-Kreimer-like Hopf algebra describing the combinatorics of the renormalization of this model and we analyze in detail, at one- and two-loop levels, the Hochschild cohomology allowing to write the combinatorial Dyson-Schwinger equations. Feynman tensor graph Hopf subalgebras are also exhibited.

Let C*(E) be the graph C*-algebra associated to a graph E and let J be a gauge-invariant ideal in C*(E). We compute the cyclic six-term exact sequence in K-theory associated to the extension in terms of the adjacency matrix associated to E. The ordered six-term exact sequence is a complete stable...... isomorphism invariant for several classes of graph C*-algebras, for instance those containing a unique proper nontrivial ideal. Further, in many other cases, finite collections of such sequences constitute complete invariants. Our results allow for explicit computation of the invariant, giving an exact...
Cosmological applications of algebraic quantum field theory in curved spacetimes
Hack, Thomas-Paul
2016-01-01
This book provides a largely self-contained and broadly accessible exposition on two cosmological applications of algebraic quantum field theory (QFT) in curved spacetime: a fundamental analysis of the cosmological evolution according to the Standard Model of Cosmology; and a fundamental study of the perturbations in inflation. The two central sections of the book dealing with these applications are preceded by sections providing a pedagogical introduction to the subject. Introductory material on the construction of linear QFTs on general curved spacetimes with and without gauge symmetry in the algebraic approach, physically meaningful quantum states on general curved spacetimes, and the backreaction of quantum fields in curved spacetimes via the semiclassical Einstein equation is also given. The reader should have a basic understanding of General Relativity and QFT on Minkowski spacetime, but no background in QFT on curved spacetimes or the algebraic approach to QFT is required.

This paper gives a complete selfcontained proof of our result (1999) showing that renormalization in quantum field theory is a special instance of a general mathematical procedure of extraction of finite values based on the Riemann-Hilbert problem. We shall first show that for any quantum field theory, the combinatorics of Feynman graphs gives rise to a Hopf algebra H which is commutative asan algebra. It is the dual Hopf algebra of the enveloping algebra of a Lie algebra G whose basis is labelled by the one particle irreducible Feynman graphs. The Lie bracket of two such graphs is computed from insertions of one graph in the other and vice versa. The corresponding Lie group G is the group of characters of H. We show then that, using dimensional regularization, the bare (unrenormalized) theory gives rise to a loop {gamma}(z) element of G, z element of C, where C is a small circle of complex dimensions around the integer dimension D of space-time. Our main result is that the renormalized theory is just the evaluation at z=D of the holomorphic part {gamma}{sub +} of the Birkhoff decomposition of {gamma}. We begin to analyse the group G and show that it is a semi-direct product of an easily understood abelian group by a highly non-trivial group closely tied up with groups of diffeomorphisms. (orig.)

This book, the first printing of which was published as volume 38 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences, presents a modern approach to homological algebra, based on the systematic use of the terminology and ideas of derived categories and derived functors. The book contains applications of homological algebra to the theory of sheaves on topological spaces, to Hodge theory, and to the theory of modules over rings of algebraic differential operators (algebraic D-modules). The authors Gelfand and Manin explain all the main ideas of the theory of derived categories. Both authors are well-known researchers and the second, Manin, is famous for his work in algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. The book is an excellent reference for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and also for physicists who use methods from algebraic geometry and algebraic topology.

In this paper, we study Boolean functions of an odd number of variables with maximum algebraic immunity, We identify three classes of such functions, and give some necessary conditions of such functions, which help to examine whether a Boolean function of an odd number of variables has the maximum algebraic immunity. Further, some necessary conditions for such functions to have also higher nonlinearity are proposed, and a class of these functions are also obtained. Finally,we present a sufficient and necessary condition for Boolean functions of an odd number of variables to achieve maximum algebraic immunity and to be also 1-resilient.

To a semisimple and cosemisimple Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field, we associate a planar algebra defined by generators and relations and show that it is a connected, irreducible, spherical, non-degenerate planar algebra with non-zero modulus and of depth two. This association is shown to yield a bijection between (the isomorphism classes, on both sides, of) such objects.
Combinatorial Hopf algebraic description of the multiscale renormalization in quantum field theory
Krajewski, Thomas; Tanasa, Adrian
2012-01-01
We define in this paper several Hopf algebras describing the combinatorics of the so-called multi-scale renormalization in quantum field theory. After a brief recall of the main mathematical features of multi-scale renormalization, we define assigned graphs, that are graphs with appropriate decorations for the multi-scale framework. We then define Hopf algebras on these assigned graphs and on the Gallavotti-Nicol\\`o trees, particular class of trees encoding the supplementary informations of the assigned graphs. Several morphisms between these combinatorial Hopf algebras and the Connes-Kreimer algebra are given. Finally, scale dependent couplings are analyzed via this combinatorial algebraic setting.

An introduction to Clifford algebras and spinors
Vaz, Jayme
2016-01-01
This text explores how Clifford algebras and spinors have been sparking a collaboration and bridging a gap between Physics and Mathematics. This collaboration has been the consequence of a growing awareness of the importance of algebraic and geometric properties in many physical phenomena, and of the discovery of common ground through various touch points: relating Clifford algebras and the arising geometry to so-called spinors, and to their three definitions (both from the mathematical and physical viewpoint). The main point of contact are the representations of Clifford algebras and the periodicity theorems. Clifford algebras also constitute a highly intuitive formalism, having an intimate relationship to quantum field theory. The text strives to seamlessly combine these various viewpoints and is devoted to a wider audience of both physicists and mathematicians. Among the existing approaches to Clifford algebras and spinors this book is unique in that it provides a didactical presentation of the topic and i...
Algebra model and security analysis for cryptographic protocols
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
HUAI Jinpeng; LI Xianxian
2004-01-01
More and more cryptographic protocols have been used to achieve various security requirements of distributed systems in the open network environment. However cryptographic protocols are very difficult to design and analyze due to the complexity of the cryptographic protocol execution, and a large number of problems are unsolved that range from the theory framework to the concrete analysis technique. In this paper, we build a new algebra called cryptographic protocol algebra (CPA) for describing the message operations with many cryptographic primitives, and proposed a new algebra model for cryptographic protocols based on the CPA. In the model, expanding processes of the participant's knowledge on the protocol runs are characterized with some algebraic notions such as subalgebra, free generator and polynomial algebra, and attack processes are modeled with a new notion similar to that of the exact sequence used in homological algebra. Then we develope a mathematical approach to the cryptographic protocol security analysis. By using algebraic techniques, we have shown that for those cryptographic protocols with some symmetric properties, the execution space generated by an arbitrary number of participants may boil down to a smaller space generated by several honest participants and attackers. Furthermore we discuss the composability problem of cryptographic protocols and give a sufficient condition under which the protocol composed of two correct cryptographic protocols is still correct, and we finally offer a counterexample to show that the statement may not be true when the condition is not met.

Hopf algebras of rooted forests, cocyles, and free Rota-Baxter algebras
Zhang, Tianjie; Gao, Xing; Guo, Li
2016-10-01
The Hopf algebra and the Rota-Baxter algebra are the two algebraic structures underlying the algebraic approach of Connes and Kreimer to renormalization of perturbative quantum field theory. In particular, the Hopf algebra of rooted trees serves as the "baby model" of Feynman graphs in their approach and can be characterized by certain universal properties involving a Hochschild 1-cocycle. Decorated rooted trees have also been applied to study Feynman graphs. We will continue the study of universal properties of various spaces of decorated rooted trees with such a 1-cocycle, leading to the concept of a cocycle Hopf algebra. We further apply the universal properties to equip a free Rota-Baxter algebra with the structure of a cocycle Hopf algebra.
Basic algebraic topology and its applications

This book provides an accessible introduction to algebraic topology, a ﬁeld at the intersection of topology, geometry and algebra, together with its applications. Moreover, it covers several related topics that are in fact important in the overall scheme of algebraic topology. Comprising eighteen chapters and two appendices, the book integrates various concepts of algebraic topology, supported by examples, exercises, applications and historical notes. Primarily intended as a textbook, the book oﬀers a valuable resource for undergraduate, postgraduate and advanced mathematics students alike. Focusing more on the geometric than on algebraic aspects of the subject, as well as its natural development, the book conveys the basic language of modern algebraic topology by exploring homotopy, homology and cohomology theories, and examines a variety of spaces: spheres, projective spaces, classical groups and their quotient spaces, function spaces, polyhedra, topological groups, Lie groups and cell complexes, etc. T...

We assess the ODE/IM correspondence for the quantum $\\mathfrak{g}$-KdV model, for a non-simply laced Lie algebra $\\mathfrak{g}$. This is done by studying a meromorphic connection with values in the Langlands dual algebra of the affine Lie algebra ${\\mathfrak{g}}^{(1)}$, and constructing the relevant $\\Psi$-system among subdominant solutions. We then use the $\\Psi$-system to prove that the generalized spectral determinants satisfy the Bethe Ansatz equations of the quantum $\\mathfrak{g}$-KdV model. We also consider generalized Airy functions for twisted Kac--Moody algebras and we construct new explicit solutions to the Bethe Ansatz equations. The paper is a continuation of our previous work on the ODE/IM correspondence for simply-laced Lie algebras.

Noncommutative Common Cause Principles in algebraic quantum field theory
Hofer-Szabó, Gábor; Vecsernyés, Péter
2013-04-01
States in algebraic quantum field theory "typically" establish correlation between spacelike separated events. Reichenbach's Common Cause Principle, generalized to the quantum field theoretical setting, offers an apt tool to causally account for these superluminal correlations. In the paper we motivate first why commutativity between the common cause and the correlating events should be abandoned in the definition of the common cause. Then we show that the Noncommutative Weak Common Cause Principle holds in algebraic quantum field theory with locally finite degrees of freedom. Namely, for any pair of projections A, B supported in spacelike separated regions VA and VB, respectively, there is a local projection C not necessarily commuting with A and B such that C is supported within the union of the backward light cones of VA and VB and the set {C, C⊥} screens off the correlation between A and B.

We give a global algebraic description of the four-form flux in F-theory. We present how to compute its D3-tadpole and how to calculate the number of four-dimensional chiral states at the intersection of 7-branes directly in F-theory. We check that, in the weak coupling limit, we obtain the same results as using perturbative type IIB string theory. We develop these techniques in full generality. However, these can be readily applied to concrete models, as we show in an explicit example. (Copyright copyright 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co. KGaA, Weinheim)

Designed for an advanced undergraduate- or graduate-level course, Abstract Algebra provides an example-oriented, less heavily symbolic approach to abstract algebra. The text emphasizes specifics such as basic number theory, polynomials, finite fields, as well as linear and multilinear algebra. This classroom-tested, how-to manual takes a more narrative approach than the stiff formalism of many other textbooks, presenting coherent storylines to convey crucial ideas in a student-friendly, accessible manner. An unusual feature of the text is the systematic characterization of objects by universal

The Whole Truth About Whole Numbers is an introduction to the field of Number Theory for students in non-math and non-science majors who have studied at least two years of high school algebra. Rather than giving brief introductions to a wide variety of topics, this book provides an in-depth introduction to the field of Number Theory. The topics covered are many of those included in an introductory Number Theory course for mathematics majors, but the presentation is carefully tailored to meet the needs of elementary education, liberal arts, and other non-mathematical majors. The text covers logic and proofs, as well as major concepts in Number Theory, and contains an abundance of worked examples and exercises to both clearly illustrate concepts and evaluate the students’ mastery of the material.

The primary intent of the book is to introduce an array of beautiful problems in a variety of subjects quickly, pithily and completely rigorously to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The book takes a number of specific problems and solves them, the needed tools developed along the way in the context of the particular problems. It treats a mélange of topics from combinatorial probability theory, number theory, random graph theory and combinatorics. The problems in this book involve the asymptotic analysis of a discrete construct as some natural parameter of the system tends to infinity. Besides bridging discrete mathematics and mathematical analysis, the book makes a modest attempt at bridging disciplines. The problems were selected with an eye toward accessibility to a wide audience, including advanced undergraduate students. The book could be used for a seminar course in which students present the lectures.
Hopf Algebra Structure of a Model Quantum Field Theory
Solomon, A I; Blasiak, P; Horzela, A; Penson, K A
2006-01-01
Recent elegant work on the structure of Perturbative Quantum Field Theory (PQFT) has revealed an astonishing interplay between analysis(Riemann Zeta functions), topology (Knot theory), combinatorial graph theory (Feynman Diagrams) and algebra (Hopf structure). The difficulty inherent in the complexities of a fully-fledged field theory such as PQFT means that the essential beauty of the relationships between these areas can be somewhat obscured. Our intention is to display some, although not all, of these structures in the context of a simple zero-dimensional field theory; i.e. a quantum theory of non-commuting operators which do not depend on spacetime. The combinatorial properties of these boson creation and annihilation operators, which is our chosen example, may be described by graphs, analogous to the Feynman diagrams of PQFT, which we show possess a Hopf algebra structure. Our approach is based on the partition function for a boson gas. In a subsequent note in these Proceedings we sketch the relationship...

Finite and Infinite W Algebras and their Applications
Tjin, T
1993-01-01
In this paper we present a systematic study of $W$ algebras from the Hamiltonian reduction point of view. The Drinfeld-Sokolov (DS) reduction scheme is generalized to arbitrary $sl_2$ embeddings thus showing that a large class of W algebras can be viewed as reductions of affine Lie algebras. The hierarchies of integrable evolution equations associated to these classical W algebras are constructed as well as the generalized Toda field theories which have them as Noether symmetry algebras. The problem of quantising the DS reductions is solved for arbitrary $sl_2$ embeddings and it is shown that any W algebra can be embedded into an affine Lie algebra. This also provides us with an algorithmic method to write down free field realizations for arbitrary W algebras. Just like affine Lie algebras W algebras have finite underlying structures called `finite W algebras'. We study the classical and quantum theory of these algebras, which play an important role in the theory of ordinary W algebras, in detail as well as s...

Equivariant Semi-topological Invariants, Atiyah's KR-theory, and Real Algebraic Cycles
Heller, Jeremiah
2010-01-01
We establish an Atiyah-Hirzebruch type spectral sequence relating real morphic cohomology and real semi-topological K-theory and prove it to be compatible with the Atiyah-Hirzebruch spectral sequence relating Bredon cohomology and Atiyah's KR-theory constructed by Dugger. An equivariant and a real version of Suslin's conjecture on morphic cohomology are formulated, proved to come from the complex version of Suslin conjecture and verified for certain real varieties. In conjunction with the spectral sequences constructed here this allows the computation of the real semi-topological K-theory of some real varieties. As another application of this spectral sequence we give an alternate proof of the Lichtenbaum-Quillen conjecture over $\\R$, extending an earlier proof of Karoubi and Weibel.

Full Text Available Problem statement: After formulating the special theory of relativity in 1905, Albert Einstein politely remarked: for velocities that are greater than light our deliberations become meaningless. In 1962, Sudarshan and his co-researchers proposed a hypothesis that particles/objects whose rest mass is imaginary can travel by birth faster than light. After the publication of Sudarshans research, many scholars began to probe into faster than light phenomena. In extended relativity, many properties of tachyons have been found. But still this micro second, the velocity of a free tachyon with respect to us is unknown. In this research the researchers found tachyon velocity. Approach: In this research, Einsteins variation of mass with velocity equation was transformed into quadratic equation. We introduced a new hypothesis to find the roots of the quadratic equation. Results: By introducing a new hypothesis in tachyon algebra, the researchers found that the velocity of superluminal objects with respect to us is v = c√3 where c is the velocity of the light. Conclusion/Recommendations: But the road to tachyon is too long. Hereafter it is up to experimental physicists to establish the existence/generation of tachyons.
Combinatorial Algebra for second-quantized Quantum Theory
Blasiak, P; Solomon, A I; Horzela, A; Penson, K A
2010-01-01
We describe an algebra G of diagrams which faithfully gives a diagrammatic representation of the structures of both the Heisenberg-Weyl algebra H - the associative algebra of the creation and annihilation operators of quantum mechanics - and U(L_H), the enveloping algebra of the Heisenberg Lie algebra L_H. We show explicitly how G may be endowed with the structure of a Hopf algebra, which is also mirrored in the structure of U(L_H). While both H and U(L_H) are images of G, the algebra G has a richer structure and therefore embodies a finer combinatorial realization of the creation-annihilation system, of which it provides a concrete model.
Multidimensional analysis algebras and systems for science and engineering
Hart, George W
1995-01-01
This book deals with the mathematical properties of dimensioned quantities, such as length, mass, voltage, and viscosity. Beginning with a careful examination of how one expresses the numerical results of a measurement and uses these results in subsequent manipulations, the author rigorously constructs the notion of dimensioned numbers and discusses their algebraic structure. The result is a unification of linear algebra and traditional dimensional analysis that can be extended from the scalars to which the traditional analysis is perforce restricted to multidimensional vectors of the sort frequently encountered in engineering, systems theory, economics, and other applications.
Perturbative algebraic quantum field theory at finite temperature
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Lindner, Falk
2013-08-15
We present the algebraic approach to perturbative quantum field theory for the real scalar field in Minkowski spacetime. In this work we put a special emphasis on the inherent state-independence of the framework and provide a detailed analysis of the state space. The dynamics of the interacting system is constructed in a novel way by virtue of the time-slice axiom in causal perturbation theory. This method sheds new light in the connection between quantum statistical dynamics and perturbative quantum field theory. In particular it allows the explicit construction of the KMS and vacuum state for the interacting, massive Klein-Gordon field which implies the absence of infrared divergences of the interacting theory at finite temperature, in particular for the interacting Wightman and time-ordered functions.
Affine transformation crossed product like algebras and noncommutative surfaces
Arnlind, Joakim
2009-01-01
Several classes of *-algebras associated to the action of an affine transformation are considered, and an investigation of the interplay between the different classes of algebras is initiated. Connections are established that relate representations of *-algebras, geometry of algebraic surfaces, dynamics of affine transformations, graphs and algebras coming from a quantization procedure of Poisson structures. In particular, algebras related to surfaces being inverse images of fourth order polynomials (in R^3) are studied in detail, and a close link between representation theory and geometric properties is established for compact as well as non-compact surfaces.

Sheaves of representations of affine Krichever-Novikov algebras over a dense open subset of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces (respectively of smooth, projective complex curves) with $N$ marked points are introduced. It is shown that the tangent space of the moduli space at an arbitrary moduli point is isomorphic to a certain subspace of the Krichever-Novikov vector fiel...

Yangians and transvector algebras

Olshanski's centralizer construction provides a realization of the Yangian for the Lie algebra gl(n) as a subalgebra in the projective limit of a chain of centralizers in the universal enveloping algebras. We give a modified version of this construction based on a quantum analog of Sylvester's theorem. We then use it to get an algebra homomorphism from the Yangian to the transvector algebra associated with the general linear Lie algebras. The results are applied to identify the elementary rep...

Algebra and geometry of Hamilton's quaternions
Krishnaswami, Govind S
2016-01-01
Inspired by the relation between the algebra of complex numbers and plane geometry, William Rowan Hamilton sought an algebra of triples for application to three dimensional geometry. Unable to multiply and divide triples, he invented a non-commutative division algebra of quadruples, in what he considered his most significant work, generalizing the real and complex number systems. We give a motivated introduction to quaternions and discuss how they are related to Pauli matrices, rotations in three dimensions, the three sphere, the group SU(2) and the celebrated Hopf fibrations.

It is shown that every almost *-homomorphism h: A → B of a unital JC*-algebra A to a unital JC*-algebra B is a *-homomorphism when h(rx) = rh(x) (r ＞ 1) for all x ∈ A, and that every almost linear mapping h: A → B is a *-homomorphism when h(2nu o y) = h(2nu) o h(y),h(3nu o y) = h(3nu) o h(y) or h(qnu o y) = h(qnu) o h(y) for all unitaries u ∈ A, all y ∈ A, and n = 0, 1, Here the numbers 2, 3, q depend on the functional equations given in the almost linear mappings.We prove that every almost *-homomorphism h: A → B of a unital Lie C*-algebra A to a unital Lie C*-algebra B is a *-homomorphism when h(rx) = rh(x) (r ＞ 1) for all x ∈ A.
Edge covers and independence: Algebraic approach

2016-06-01
In this paper, linear algebra methods are applied to solve some problems of graph theory. For ordinary connected graphs, edge coverings and independent sets are considered. Some results concerning minimum edge covers and maximum matchings are proved with the help of linear algebraic approach. The problem of finding a maximum matching of a graph is fundamental both practically and theoretically, and has numerous applications, e.g., in computational chemistry and mathematical chemistry.
Uniform Algebras Over Complete Valued Fields
Mason, Jonathan W
2012-01-01
UNIFORM algebras have been extensively investigated because of their importance in the theory of uniform approximation and as examples of complex Banach algebras. An interesting question is whether analogous algebras exist when a complete valued field other than the complex numbers is used as the underlying field of the algebra. In the Archimedean setting, this generalisation is given by the theory of real function algebras introduced by S. H. Kulkarni and B. V. Limaye in the 1980s. This thesis establishes a broader theory accommodating any complete valued field as the underlying field by involving Galois automorphisms and using non-Archimedean analysis. The approach taken keeps close to the original definitions from the Archimedean setting. Basic function algebras are defined and generalise real function algebras to all complete valued fields. Several examples are provided. Each basic function algebra is shown to have a lattice of basic extensions related to the field structure. In the non-Archimedean settin...

The Abelian Semigroup Expansion Method for Lie Algebras is briefly explained. Given a Lie Algebra and a discrete abelian semigroup, the method allows us to directly build new Lie Algebras with their corresponding non-trivial invariant tensors. The Method is especially interesting in the context of M-Theory, because it allows us to construct M-Algebra Invariant Chern-Simons/Transgression Lagrangians in d = 11.
Algebraic connectivity and graph robustness.
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Feddema, John Todd; Byrne, Raymond Harry; Abdallah, Chaouki T. (University of New Mexico)
2009-07-01
Recent papers have used Fiedler's definition of algebraic connectivity to show that network robustness, as measured by node-connectivity and edge-connectivity, can be increased by increasing the algebraic connectivity of the network. By the definition of algebraic connectivity, the second smallest eigenvalue of the graph Laplacian is a lower bound on the node-connectivity. In this paper we show that for circular random lattice graphs and mesh graphs algebraic connectivity is a conservative lower bound, and that increases in algebraic connectivity actually correspond to a decrease in node-connectivity. This means that the networks are actually less robust with respect to node-connectivity as the algebraic connectivity increases. However, an increase in algebraic connectivity seems to correlate well with a decrease in the characteristic path length of these networks - which would result in quicker communication through the network. Applications of these results are then discussed for perimeter security.
Cohomological Hall algebras and character varieties
Davison, Ben
2015-01-01
In this paper we investigate the relationship between twisted and untwisted character varieties via a specific instance of the Cohomological Hall algebra for moduli of objects in 3-Calabi-Yau categories introduced by Kontsevich and Soibelman. In terms of Donaldson--Thomas theory, this relationship is completely understood via the calculations of Hausel and Villegas of the E polynomials of twisted character varieties and untwisted character stacks. We present a conjectural lift of this relationship to the cohomological Hall algebra setting.

Kac-Moody Algebras and Controlled Chaos
Wesley, D H
2007-01-01
Compactification can control chaotic Mixmaster behavior in gravitational systems with p-form matter: we consider this in light of the connection between supergravity models and Kac-Moody algebras. We show that different compactifications define "mutations" of the algebras associated with the noncompact theories. We list the algebras obtained in this way, and find novel examples of wall systems determined by hyperbolic (but not strictly hyperbolic) algebras. Cosmological models with a smooth pre-big bang phase require that chaos is absent: we show that compactification alone cannot eliminate chaos in the simplest compactifications of the heterotic string on a Calabi-Yau, or M theory on a manifold of G_2 holonomy.
Realisation of a Lorentz algebra in Lorentz violating theory

Ganguly, Oindrila [S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata (India)
2012-11-15
A Lorentz non-invariant higher derivative effective action in flat spacetime, characterised by a constant vector, can be made invariant under infinitesimal Lorentz transformations by restricting the allowed field configurations. These restricted fields are defined as functions of the background vector in such a way that background dependence of the dynamics of the physical system is no longer manifest. We show here that they also provide a field basis for the realisation of a Lorentz algebra and allow the construction of a Poincare invariant symplectic two-form on the covariant phase space of the theory.

Forward error correction based on algebraic-geometric theory
A Alzubi, Jafar; M Chen, Thomas
2014-01-01
This book covers the design, construction, and implementation of algebraic-geometric codes from Hermitian curves. Matlab simulations of algebraic-geometric codes and Reed-Solomon codes compare their bit error rate using different modulation schemes over additive white Gaussian noise channel model. Simulation results of Algebraic-geometric codes bit error rate performance using quadrature amplitude modulation (16QAM and 64QAM) are presented for the first time and shown to outperform Reed-Solomon codes at various code rates and channel models. The book proposes algebraic-geometric block turbo codes. It also presents simulation results that show an improved bit error rate performance at the cost of high system complexity due to using algebraic-geometric codes and Chase-Pyndiah’s algorithm simultaneously. The book proposes algebraic-geometric irregular block turbo codes (AG-IBTC) to reduce system complexity. Simulation results for AG-IBTCs are presented for the first time.
Application of Fuzzy Algebra in Coding Theory

Full Text Available Fuzziness means different things depending upon the domain of application and the way it is measured. By means of fuzzy sets, vague notions can be described mathematically now a vigorous area of research with manifold applications. It should be mentioned that there are natural ways (not necessarily trivial to fuzzily various mathematical structures such as topological spaces, algebraic structure etc. The notion of L-fuzzy sets later more generalizations were also made using various membership sets and operations. In this section we let F denote the field of integers module 2, we define a fuzzy code as a fuzzy subset of Fn where F n = {(a1, ....an | a i F, i = 1, ...n} and n is a fixed arbitrary positive integers we recall that Fn is a vector space over F. We give an analysis of the Hamming distance between two fuzzy code words and the error – correcting capability of a code in terms of its corresponding fuzzy codes. The results appearing in the first part of this section are from [17].

Perturbative quantization of Yang-Mills theory with classical double as gauge algebra
Ruiz, F Ruiz
2015-01-01
Perturbative quantization of Yang-Mills theory with a gauge algebra given by the classical double of a semisimple Lie algebra is considered. The classical double of a real Lie algebra is a nonsemisimple real Lie algebra that admits a nonpositive definite invariant metric, the indefiniteness of the metric suggesting an apparent lack of unitarity. It is shown that the theory is UV divergent at one loop and that there are no radiative corrections at higher loops. One-loop UV divergences are removed through renormalization of the coupling constant, thus introducing a renormalization scale. The terms in the classical action that would spoil unitarity are proved to be cohomologically trivial with respect to the Slavnov-Taylor operator that controls gauge invariance for the quantum theory. Hence they do not contribute gauge invariant radiative corrections to the quantum effective action and the theory is unitary.

Combinatorics and commutative algebra
Stanley, Richard P
1996-01-01
Some remarkable connections between commutative algebra and combinatorics have been discovered in recent years. This book provides an overview of two of the main topics in this area. The first concerns the solutions of linear equations in nonnegative integers. Applications are given to the enumeration of integer stochastic matrices (or magic squares), the volume of polytopes, combinatorial reciprocity theorems, and related results. The second topic deals with the face ring of a simplicial complex, and includes a proof of the Upper Bound Conjecture for Spheres. An introductory chapter giving background information in algebra, combinatorics and topology broadens access to this material for non-specialists. New to this edition is a chapter surveying more recent work related to face rings, focusing on applications to f-vectors. Included in this chapter is an outline of the proof of McMullen's g-conjecture for simplicial polytopes based on toric varieties, as well as a discussion of the face rings of such special ...
Multiplicative zero-one laws and metric number theory
Beresnevich, Victor; Velani, Sanju
2010-01-01
We develop the classical theory of Diophantine approximation without assuming monotonicity or convexity. A complete `multiplicative' zero-one law is established akin to the `simultaneous' zero-one laws of Cassels and Gallagher. As a consequence we are able to establish the analogue of the Duffin-Schaeffer theorem within the multiplicative setup. The key ingredient is the rather simple but nevertheless versatile `cross fibering principle'. In a nutshell it enables us to `lift' zero-one laws to higher dimensions.

The feature extraction and feature selection are the important issues in pattern recognition. Based on the geometric algebra representation of vector, a new feature extraction method using blade coefficient of geometric algebra was proposed in this study. At the same time, an improved differential evolution (DE) feature selection method was proposed to solve the elevated high dimension issue. The simple linear discriminant analysis was used as the classifier. The result of the 10-fold cross-validation (10 CV) classification of public breast cancer biomedical dataset was more than 96% and proved superior to that of the original features and traditional feature extraction method.

Poisson algebras are fundamental algebraic structures in physics and symplectic geometry. However, the structure theory of Poisson algebras has not been well developed. In this paper, we determine the structure of the central simple Poisson algebras related to locally finite derivations, over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero.The Lie algebra structures of these Poisson algebras are in general not finitely-graded.

Quantum mechanics is the greatest revision of our conception of the character of the physical world since Newton. Consequently, David Hilbert was very interested in quantum mechanics. He and John von Neumann discussed it frequently during von Neumann's residence in Göttingen. He published in 1932 his book Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics. In Hilbert's opinion it was the first exposition of quantum mechanics in a mathematically rigorous way. The pioneers of quantum mechanics, Heisenberg and Dirac, neither had use for rigorous mathematics nor much interest in it. Conceptually, quantum theory as developed by Bohr and Heisenberg is based on the positivism of Mach as it describes only observable quantities. It first emerged as a result of experimental data in the form of statistical observations of quantum noise, the basic concept of quantum probability.
Algebraicity and Asymptotics: An explosion of BPS indices from algebraic generating series
Mainiero, Tom
2016-01-01
It is an observation of Kontsevich and Soibelman that generating series that produce certain (generalized) Donaldson Thomas invariants are secretly algebraic functions over the rationals. From a physical perspective this observation arises naturally for DT invariants that appear as BPS indices in theories of class S[A]: explicit algebraic equations (that completely determine these series) can be derived using (degenerate) spectral networks. In this paper, we conjecture an algebraic equation associated to DT invariants for the Kronecker 3-quiver with dimension vectors (3n,2n), n>0 in the non-trivial region of its stability parameter space. Using a functional equation due to Reineke, we show algebraicity of generating series for Euler characteristics of stable moduli for the Kronecker m-quiver assuming algebraicity of generating series for DT invariants. In the latter part of the paper we deduce very explicit results on the asymptotics of DT invariants/Euler characteristics under the assumption of algebraicity ...
Lie groups, lie algebras, and representations an elementary introduction
Hall, Brian

This textbook treats Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representations in an elementary but fully rigorous fashion requiring minimal prerequisites. In particular, the theory of matrix Lie groups and their Lie algebras is developed using only linear algebra, and more motivation and intuition for proofs is provided than in most classic texts on the subject. In addition to its accessible treatment of the basic theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, the book is also noteworthy for including: a treatment of the Baker–Campbell–Hausdorff formula and its use in place of the Frobenius theorem to establish deeper results about the relationship between Lie groups and Lie algebras motivation for the machinery of roots, weights and the Weyl group via a concrete and detailed exposition of the representation theory of sl(3;C) an unconventional definition of semisimplicity that allows for a rapid development of the structure theory of semisimple Lie algebras a self-contained construction of the representations of compac...

Vortex lattice theory: A linear algebra approach
Chamoun, George C.
Vortex lattices are prevalent in a large class of physical settings that are characterized by different mathematical models. We present a coherent and generalized Hamiltonian fluid mechanics-based formulation that reduces all vortex lattices into a classic problem in linear algebra for a non-normal matrix A. Via Singular Value Decomposition (SVD), the solution lies in the null space of the matrix (i.e., we require nullity( A) > 0) as well as the distribution of its singular values. We demonstrate that this approach provides a good model for various types of vortex lattices, and makes it possible to extract a rich amount of information on them. The contributions of this thesis can be classified into four main points. The first is asymmetric equilibria. A 'Brownian ratchet' construct was used which converged to asymmetric equilibria via a random walk scheme that utilized the smallest singular value of A. Distances between configurations and equilibria were measured using the Frobenius norm ||·||F and 2-norm ||·||2, and conclusions were made on the density of equilibria within the general configuration space. The second contribution used Shannon Entropy, which we interpret as a scalar measure of the robustness, or likelihood of lattices to occur in a physical setting. Third, an analytic model was produced for vortex street patterns on the sphere by using SVD in conjunction with expressions for the center of vorticity vector and angular velocity. Equilibrium curves within the configuration space were presented as a function of the geometry, and pole vortices were shown to have a critical role in the formation and destruction of vortex streets. The fourth contribution entailed a more complete perspective of the streamline topology of vortex streets, linking the bifurcations to critical points on the equilibrium curves.
Lie algebras and linear differential equations.
Brockett, R. W.; Rahimi, A.
1972-01-01
Certain symmetry properties possessed by the solutions of linear differential equations are examined. For this purpose, some basic ideas from the theory of finite dimensional linear systems are used together with the work of Wei and Norman on the use of Lie algebraic methods in differential equation theory.
Affine and degenerate affine BMW algebras: The center
Daugherty, Zajj; Virk, Rahbar
2011-01-01
The degenerate affine and affine BMW algebras arise naturally in the context of Schur-Weyl duality for orthogonal and symplectic Lie algebras and quantum groups, respectively. Cyclotomic BMW algebras, affine Hecke algebras, cyclotomic Hecke algebras, and their degenerate versions are quotients. In this paper the theory is unified by treating the orthogonal and symplectic cases simultaneously; we make an exact parallel between the degenerate affine and affine cases via a new algebra which takes the role of the affine braid group for the degenerate setting. A main result of this paper is an identification of the centers of the affine and degenerate affine BMW algebras in terms of rings of symmetric functions which satisfy a "cancellation property" or "wheel condition" (in the degenerate case, a reformulation of a result of Nazarov). Miraculously, these same rings also arise in Schubert calculus, as the cohomology and K-theory of isotropic Grassmanians and symplectic loop Grassmanians. We also establish new inte...

Perturbative algebraic quantum field theory an introduction for mathematicians
Rejzner, Kasia
2016-01-01
Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory (pAQFT), the subject of this book, is a complete and mathematically rigorous treatment of perturbative quantum field theory (pQFT) that doesn’t require the use of divergent quantities. We discuss in detail the examples of scalar fields and gauge theories and generalize them to QFT on curved spacetimes. pQFT models describe a wide range of physical phenomena and have remarkable agreement with experimental results. Despite this success, the theory suffers from many conceptual problems. pAQFT is a good candidate to solve many, if not all of these conceptual problems. Chapters 1-3 provide some background in mathematics and physics. Chapter 4 concerns classical theory of the scalar field, which is subsequently quantized in chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 covers gauge theory and chapter 8 discusses QFT on curved spacetimes and effective quantum gravity. The book aims to be accessible researchers and graduate students interested in the mathematical foundations of pQFT are th...
$A\\mathcal{T}$-Algebras and Extensions of $AT$-Algebras

2010-04-01
Lin and Su classified $A\\mathcal{T}$-algebras of real rank zero. This class includes all $A\\mathbb{T}$-algebras of real rank zero as well as many *-algebras which are not stably finite. An $A\\mathcal{T}$-algebra often becomes an extension of an $A\\mathbb{T}$-algebra by an -algebra. In this paper, we show that there is an essential extension of an $A\\mathbb{T}$-algebra by an -algebra which is not an $A\\mathcal{T}$-algebra. We describe a characterization of an extension of an $A\\mathbb{T}$-algebra by an -algebra if is an $A\\mathcal{T}$-algebra.
International conference on Algebraic and Complex Geometry
Kloosterman, Remke; Schütt, Matthias; Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics : Volume 71
2014-01-01
Several important aspects of moduli spaces and irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifolds were highlighted at the conference “Algebraic and Complex Geometry” held September 2012 in Hannover, Germany. These two subjects of recent ongoing progress belong to the most spectacular developments in Algebraic and Complex Geometry. Irreducible symplectic manifolds are of interest to algebraic and differential geometers alike, behaving similar to K3 surfaces and abelian varieties in certain ways, but being by far less well-understood. Moduli spaces, on the other hand, have been a rich source of open questions and discoveries for decades and still continue to be a hot topic in itself as well as with its interplay with neighbouring fields such as arithmetic geometry and string theory. Beyond the above focal topics this volume reflects the broad diversity of lectures at the conference and comprises 11 papers on current research from different areas of algebraic and complex geometry sorted in alphabetic order by the ...
The logical syntax of number words: theory, acquisition and processing.
Musolino, Julien
2009-04-01
Recent work on the acquisition of number words has emphasized the importance of integrating linguistic and developmental perspectives [Musolino, J. (2004). The semantics and acquisition of number words: Integrating linguistic and developmental perspectives. Cognition93, 1-41; Papafragou, A., Musolino, J. (2003). Scalar implicatures: Scalar implicatures: Experiments at the semantics-pragmatics interface. Cognition, 86, 253-282; Hurewitz, F., Papafragou, A., Gleitman, L., Gelman, R. (2006). Asymmetries in the acquisition of numbers and quantifiers. Language Learning and Development, 2, 76-97; Huang, Y. T., Snedeker, J., Spelke, L. (submitted for publication). What exactly do numbers mean?]. Specifically, these studies have shown that data from experimental investigations of child language can be used to illuminate core theoretical issues in the semantic and pragmatic analysis of number terms. In this article, I extend this approach to the logico-syntactic properties of number words, focusing on the way numerals interact with each other (e.g. Three boys are holding two balloons) as well as with other quantified expressions (e.g. Three boys are holding each balloon). On the basis of their intuitions, linguists have claimed that such sentences give rise to at least four different interpretations, reflecting the complexity of the linguistic structure and syntactic operations involved. Using psycholinguistic experimentation with preschoolers (n=32) and adult speakers of English (n=32), I show that (a) for adults, the intuitions of linguists can be verified experimentally, (b) by the age of 5, children have knowledge of the core aspects of the logical syntax of number words, (c) in spite of this knowledge, children nevertheless differ from adults in systematic ways, (d) the differences observed between children and adults can be accounted for on the basis of an independently motivated, linguistically-based processing model [Geurts, B. (2003). Quantifying kids. Language

Linear algebra and projective geometry
Baer, Reinhold
2005-01-01
Geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this text establishes that projective geometry and linear algebra are essentially identical. The supporting evidence consists of theorems offering an algebraic demonstration of certain geometric concepts. These focus on the representation of projective geometries by linear manifolds, of projectivities by semilinear transformations, of collineations by linear transformations, and of dualities by semilinear forms. These theorems lead to a reconstruction of the geometry that constituted the discussion's starting point, within algebra
Lorentz covariant field theory on noncommutative spacetime based on DFR algebra
Okumura, Y
2003-01-01
Lorentz covariance is the fundamental principle of every relativistic field theory which insures consistent physical descriptions. Even if the space-time is noncommutative, field theories on it should keep Lorentz covariance. In this letter, it is shown that the field theory on noncommutative spacetime is Lorentz covariant if the noncommutativity emerges from the algebra of spacetime operators described by Doplicher, Fredenhagen and Roberts.

We introduced fermionic variables in complex modules over real Clifford algebras of even dimension which are analog of the Witt basis. We built primitive idempotents which are a set of equivalent Clifford vacuums. It is shown that the modules are decomposed into direct sum of minimal left ideals generated by these idempotents and that the fermionic variables can be considered as more fundamental mathematical objects than spinors.
Clifford Algebra Cℓ 3(ℂ) for Applications to Field Theories
Panicaud, B.
2011-10-01
The multivectorial algebras present yet both an academic and a technological interest. Difficulties can occur for their use. Indeed, in all applications care is taken to distinguish between polar and axial vectors and between scalars and pseudo scalars. Then a total of eight elements are often considered even if they are not given the correct name of multivectors. Eventually because of their simplicity, only the vectorial algebra or the quaternions algebra are explicitly used for physical applications. Nevertheless, it should be more convenient to use directly more complex algebras in order to have a wider range of application. The aim of this paper is to inquire into one particular Clifford algebra which could solve this problem. The present study is both didactic concerning its construction and pragmatic because of the introduced applications. The construction method is not an original one. But this latter allows to build up the associated real algebra as well as a peculiar formalism that enables a formal analogy with the classical vectorial algebra. Finally several fields of the theoretical physics will be described thanks to this algebra, as well as a more applied case in general relativity emphasizing simultaneously its relative validity in this particular domain and the easiness of modeling some physical problems.

In this paper, we make the case that Clifford algebra is the natural framework for root systems and reflection groups, as well as related groups such as the conformal and modular groups: The metric that exists on these spaces can always be used to construct the corresponding Clifford algebra. Via the Cartan-Dieudonn\\'e theorem all the transformations of interest can be written as products of reflections and thus via `sandwiching' with Clifford algebra multivectors. These multivector groups can be used to perform concrete calculations in different groups, e.g. the various types of polyhedral groups, and we treat the example of the tetrahedral group $A_3$ in detail. As an aside, this gives a constructive result that induces from every 3D root system a root system in dimension four, which hinges on the facts that the group of spinors provides a double cover of the rotations, the space of 3D spinors has a 4D euclidean inner product, and with respect to this inner product the group of spinors can be shown to be cl...
Anyons and matrix product operator algebras

2017-03-01
Quantum tensor network states and more particularly projected entangled-pair states provide a natural framework for representing ground states of gapped, topologically ordered systems. The defining feature of these representations is that topological order is a consequence of the symmetry of the underlying tensors in terms of matrix product operators. In this paper, we present a systematic study of those matrix product operators, and show how this relates entanglement properties of projected entangled-pair states to the formalism of fusion tensor categories. From the matrix product operators we construct a C∗-algebra and find that topological sectors can be identified with the central idempotents of this algebra. This allows us to construct projected entangled-pair states containing an arbitrary number of anyons. Properties such as topological spin, the S matrix, fusion and braiding relations can readily be extracted from the idempotents. As the matrix product operator symmetries are acting purely on the virtual level of the tensor network, the ensuing Wilson loops are not fattened when perturbing the system, and this opens up the possibility of simulating topological theories away from renormalization group fixed points. We illustrate the general formalism for the special cases of discrete gauge theories and string-net models.

The paper recapitulates some key elements in previously published results concerning exact and complete reconstitution of the field of natural numbers, both as ordinal and as cardinal numbers, from systematic unfoldment of the Fibonacci algorithm. By this natural numbers emerge as Fibonacci 'atoms' and 'molecules' consistent with the notion of Zeckendorf sums. Here, the sub-set of prime numbers appears not as the primary numbers, but as an epistructure from a deeper Fibonacci constitution, and is thus targeted from a 'positive approach'. In the Fibonacci reconstitution of number theory natural numbers show a double geometrical aspect: partly as extension in space and partly as position in a successive structuring of space. More specifically, the natural numbers are shown to be distributed by a concise 5:3 code structured from the Fibonacci algorithm via Pascal's triangle. The paper discusses possible implications for the more general relation between number theory and geometry, as well as more specifically in relation to hadronic mathematics, initiated by R.M. Santilli, and also briefly to some other recent science linking number theory more directly to geometry and natural systems.
Categorification and Quasi-Hopf Algebras
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
常文静; 王志玺; 吴可; 杨紫峰
2011-01-01
We categorify the notion of coalgebras by imposing a co-associative law up to some isomorphisms on the co-multiplication map and requiring that these isomorphisms satisfy certairl law of their own, which is called the copentagon identity. We also set up a 2-category of 2-coalgebras. The purpose of this study is from the idea of reconsidering the quasi-Hopf algebras by the categorification process, so that we can study the theory of quasi-Hopf algebras and their representations in some new framework of higher category theory in natural ways.

The Chern-Simons-like theories of gravity (CSLTG) are formulated at first order formalism. In this formalism, the derivation of the entropy of a black hole on bifurcation surface, as a quasi-local conserved charge is problematic. In this paper we overcome these problems by considering the concept of total variation and the Lorentz-Lie derivative. We firstly find an expression for the ADT conserved current in the context of the CSLTG which is based on the concept of the Killing vector fields. Then, we generalize it to be conserved for all diffeomorphism generators. Thus, we can extract an off-shell conserved charge for any vector field which generates a diffeomorphism. The formalism presented here is based on the concept of quasi-local conserved charges which are off-shell. The charges can be calculated on any codimension two space-like surface surrounding a black hole and the results are independent of the chosen surface. By using the off-shell quasi-local conserved charge, we investigate the Virasoro algebra and find a formula to calculate the central extension term. We apply the formalism to the BTZ black hole solution in the context of the Einstein gravity and the Generalized massive gravity, then we find the eigenvalues of their Virasoro generators as well as the corresponding central charges. Eventually, we calculate the entropy of the BTZ black hole by the Cardy formula and we show that the result exactly matches the one obtained by the concept of the off-shell conserved charges.

Analysis and optimisation for inerter-based isolators via fixed-point theory and algebraic solution
Hu, Yinlong; Chen, Michael Z. Q.; Shu, Zhan; Huang, Lixi
2015-06-01
This paper is concerned with the problem of analysis and optimisation of the inerter-based isolators based on a "uni-axial" single-degree-of-freedom isolation system. In the first part, in order to gain an in-depth understanding of inerter from the prospective of vibration, the frequency responses of both parallel-connected and series-connected inerters are analysed. In the second part, three other inerter-based isolators are introduced and the tuning procedures in both the H∞ optimisation and the H2 optimisation are proposed in an analytical manner. The achieved H2 and H∞ performance of the inerter-based isolators is superior to that achieved by the traditional dynamic vibration absorber (DVA) when the same inertance-to-mass (or mass) ratio is considered. Moreover, the inerter-based isolators have two unique properties, which are more attractive than the traditional DVA: first, the inertance-to-mass ratio of the inerter-based isolators can easily be larger than the mass ratio of the traditional DVA without increasing the physical mass of the whole system; second, there is no need to mount an additional mass on the object to be isolated.
Complex numbers in quantum theory
Maynard, Glenn
In 1927, Nobel prize winning physicist, E. Schrodinger, in correspondence with Ehrenfest, wrote the following about the new theory: "What is unpleasant here, and indeed directly to be objected to, is the use of complex numbers. Psi is surely fundamentally a real function." This seemingly simple issue remains unexplained almost ninety years later. In this dissertation I elucidate the physical and theoretical origins of the complex requirement. (Abstract shortened by ProQuest.).

An Algebraic Construction of Boundary Quantum Field Theory
Longo, Roberto; Witten, Edward
2011-04-01
We build up local, time translation covariant Boundary Quantum Field Theory nets of von Neumann algebras {mathcal A_V} on the Minkowski half-plane M + starting with a local conformal net {mathcal A} of von Neumann algebras on {mathbb R} and an element V of a unitary semigroup {mathcal E(mathcal A)} associated with {mathcal A}. The case V = 1 reduces to the net {mathcal A_+} considered by Rehren and one of the authors; if the vacuum character of {mathcal A} is summable, {mathcal A_V} is locally isomorphic to {mathcal A_+}. We discuss the structure of the semigroup {mathcal E(mathcal A)}. By using a one-particle version of Borchers theorem and standard subspace analysis, we provide an abstract analog of the Beurling-Lax theorem that allows us to describe, in particular, all unitaries on the one-particle Hilbert space whose second quantization promotion belongs to {mathcal E(mathcal A^{(0)})} with {mathcal A^{(0)}} the U(1)-current net. Each such unitary is attached to a scattering function or, more generally, to a symmetric inner function. We then obtain families of models via any Buchholz-Mack-Todorov extension of {mathcal A^{(0)}}. A further family of models comes from the Ising model.

D p-branes, NS5-branes and U-duality from nonabelian (2,0) theory with Lie 3-algebra
Honma, Yoshinori; Ogawa, Morirou; Shiba, Shotaro
2011-04-01
We derive the super Yang-Mills action of D p-branes on a torus T p-4 from the nonabelian (2, 0) theory with Lie 3-algebra [1]. Our realization is based on Lie 3-algebra with pairs of Lorentzian metric generators. The resultant theory then has negative norm modes, but it results in a unitary theory by setting VEV's of these modes. This procedure corresponds to the torus compactification, therefore by taking a transformation which is equivalent to T-duality, the D p-brane action is obtained. We also study type IIA/IIB NS5brane and Kaluza-Klein monopole systems by taking other VEV assignments. Such various compactifications can be realized in the nonabelian (2, 0) theory, since both longitudinal and transverse directions can be compactified, which is different from the BLG theory. We finally discuss U-duality among these branes, and show that most of the moduli parameters in U-duality group are recovered. Especially in D5-brane case, the whole U-duality relation is properly reproduced.
The K-Theory of Toeplitz C^*-Algebras of Right-Angled Artin Groups
Ivanov, Nikolay A
2007-01-01
To a graph $\\Gamma$ one can associate a C^*-algebra $C^*(\\Gamma)$ generated by isometries. Such $C^*$-algebras were studied recently by Crisp and Laca. They are a special case of the Toeplitz C^*-algebras $\\mathcal{T}(G, P)$ associated to quasi-latice ordered groups (G, P) introduced by Nica. Crisp and Laca proved that the so called "boundary quotients" $C^*_q(\\Gamma)$ of $C^*(\\Gamma)$ are simple and purely infinite. For a certain class of finite graphs $\\Gamma$ we show that $C^*_q(\\Gamma)$ can be represented as a full corner of a crossed product of an appropriate C^*-subalgebra of $C^*_q(\\Gamma)$ built by using $C^*(\\Gamma')$, where $\\Gamma'$ is a subgraph of $\\Gamma$ with one less vertex, by the group $\\mathbb{Z}$. Using induction on the number of the vertices of $\\Gamma$ we show that $C^*_q(\\Gamma)$ are nuclear and belong to the small bootstrap class. This also enables us to use the Pimsner-Voiculescu exact sequence to find their K-theory. Finally we use the Kirchberg-Phillips classification theorem to sho...

This paper provides a detailed account of the period of the complex history of British algebra and geometry between the publication of George Peacock's Treatise on Algebra in 1830 and William Rowan Hamilton's paper on quaternions of 1843. During these years, Duncan Farquharson Gregory and William Walton published several contributions on 'algebraical geometry' and 'geometrical algebra' in the Cambridge Mathematical Journal. These contributions enabled them not only to generalize Peacock's symbolical algebra on the basis of geometrical considerations, but also to initiate the attempts to question the status of Euclidean space as the arbiter of valid geometrical interpretations. At the same time, Gregory and Walton were bound by the limits of symbolical algebra that they themselves made explicit; their work was not and could not be the 'abstract algebra' and 'abstract geometry' of figures such as Hamilton and Cayley. The central argument of the paper is that an understanding of the contributions to 'algebraical geometry' and 'geometrical algebra' of the second generation of 'scientific' symbolical algebraists is essential for a satisfactory explanation of the radical transition from symbolical to abstract algebra that took place in British mathematics in the 1830s-1840s.

We propose a non-associative phase space algebra for M-theory backgrounds with locally non-geometric fluxes based on the non-associative algebra of octonions. Our proposal is based on the observation that the non-associative algebra of the non-geometric R-flux background in string theory can be obtained by a proper contraction of the simple Malcev algebra generated by imaginary octonions. Furthermore, by studying a toy model of a four-dimensional locally non-geometric M-theory background which is dual to a twisted torus, we show that the non-geometric background is "missing" a momentum mode. The resulting seven-dimensional phase space can thus be naturally identified with the imaginary octonions. This allows us to interpret the full uncontracted algebra of imaginary octonions as the uplift of the string theory R-flux algebra to M-theory, with the contraction parameter playing the role of the string coupling constant $g_s$.

Full Text Available We put forward an efficient method to study the algebraic immunity of H Boolean functions with Hamming weight of 2n-1 + 2n-2, getting the existence of the higher-order algebraic immunity functions with correlation immunity. We also prove the existing problem of the above 2-order algebraic immunity functions and the optimal algebraic immunity functions. Meanwhile, we solve the compatibility of algebraic immunity and correlation immunity. What is more, the main theoretical results are verified through the examples and are revealed to be correct. Such researches are important in cryptographic primitive designs, and have significance and role in the theory and application range of cryptosystems.
Algebraic approach to form factors in the complex sinh-Gordon theory
Lashkevich, Michael
2016-01-01
We study form factors of the quantum complex sinh-Gordon theory in the algebraic approach. In the case of exponential fields the form factors can be obtained from the known form factors of the $Z_N$-symmetric Ising model. The algebraic construction also provides an Ansatz for form factors of descendant operators. We obtain generating functions of such form factors and establish their main properties: the cluster factorization and reflection equations.

relevance in Turing-machine-based complexity theory can be replicated easily and naturally in this elementary framework. Finer distinctions about the computational relationships among natural problems can be made than in previous formulations and some negative results are proved.......A projection of a Boolean function is a function obtained by substituting for each of its variables a variable, the negation of a variable, or a constant. Reducibilities among computational problems under this relation of projection are considered. It is shown that much of what is of everyday...

Heisenberg double of supersymmetric algebras for noncommutative quantum field theory
Kirchanov, V. S.
2013-09-01
The ground work is laid for the construction of a Heisenberg superdouble in the form of a smash product of a standard Poincaré-Lie quantum-operator superalgebra with coalgebra and its double Lie spatial superalgebra with coalgebra, which are Hopf algebras and a Hopf modular algebra, respectively. Deformation of the superalgebras is realized by Drinfeld twists for the shift and supershift operators. As a result, an extended algebra is obtained, containing a non(anti)commutative superspace and quantum-group generators.

Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
2008-01-01
Algebraic dynamics solution and algebraic dynamics algorithm of nonlinear partial differential evolution equations in the functional space are applied to Burgers equation. The results indicate that the approach is effective for analytical solutions to Burgers equation, and the algorithm for numerical solutions of Burgers equation is more stable, with higher precision than other existing finite difference algo-rithms.
Noncommutative correspondence categories, simplicial sets and pro $C^*$-algebras
Mahanta, Snigdhayan
2009-01-01
We show that a $KK$-equivalence between two unital $C^*$-algebras produces a correspondence between their DG categories of finitely generated projective modules which is a $\\mathbf{K}_*$-equivalence, where $\\mathbf{K}_*$ is Waldhausen's $K$-theory. We discuss some connections with strong deformations of $C^*$-algebras and homological dualities. Motivated by a construction of Cuntz we associate a pro $C^*$-algebra to any simplicial set. We show that this construction is functorial with respect to proper maps of simplicial sets, that we define, and also respects proper homotopy equivalences. We propose to develop a noncommutative proper homotopy theory in the context of topological algebras.

This paper contains some personal reflections on several computational contributions to what is now known as the "String Theory Landscape". It consists of two parts. The first part concerns the origin of big numbers, and especially the number $10^{1500}$ that appeared in work on the covariant lattice construction (with W. Lerche and D. Luest). This part contains some new results. I correct a huge but inconsequential error, discuss some more accurate estimates, and compare with the counting for free fermion constructions. In particular I prove that the latter only provide an exponentially small fraction of all even self-dual lattices for large lattice dimensions. The second part of the paper concerns dealing with big numbers, and contains some lessons learned from various vacuum scanning projects.

The Lukasiewicz-Moisil algebras were created by Moisil as an algebraic counterpart for the many-valued logics of Lukasiewicz. The theory of LM-algebras has developed to a considerable extent both as an algebraic theory of intrinsic interest and in view of its applications to logic and switching theory.This book gives an overview of the theory, comprising both classical results and recent contributions, including those of the authors. N-valued and &THgr;-valued algebras are presented, as well as &THgr;-algebras with negation.Mathematicians interested in lattice theory or symbolic logic, and computer scientists, will find in this monograph stimulating material for further research.
Algebraic Quantum Gravity (AQG) III. Semiclassical Perturbation Theory
Giesel, K
2006-01-01
In the two previous papers of this series we defined a new combinatorical approach to quantum gravity, Algebraic Quantum Gravity (AQG). We showed that AQG reproduces the correct infinitesimal dynamics in the semiclassical limit, provided one incorrectly substitutes the non -- Abelean group SU(2) by the Abelean group $U(1)^3$ in the calculations. The mere reason why that substitution was performed at all is that in the non -- Abelean case the volume operator, pivotal for the definition of the dynamics, is not diagonisable by analytical methods. This, in contrast to the Abelean case, so far prohibited semiclassical computations. In this paper we show why this unjustified substitution nevertheless reproduces the correct physical result: Namely, we introduce for the first time semiclassical perturbation theory within AQG (and LQG) which allows to compute expectation values of interesting operators such as the master constraint as a power series in $\\hbar$ with error control. That is, in particular matrix elements...
Quantum complexity of graph and algebraic problems
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Doern, Sebastian
2008-02-04
This thesis is organized as follows: In Chapter 2 we give some basic notations, definitions and facts from linear algebra, graph theory, group theory and quantum computation. In Chapter 3 we describe three important methods for the construction of quantum algorithms. We present the quantum search algorithm by Grover, the quantum amplitude amplification and the quantum walk search technique by Magniez et al. These three tools are the basis for the development of our new quantum algorithms for graph and algebra problems. In Chapter 4 we present two tools for proving quantum query lower bounds. We present the quantum adversary method by Ambainis and the polynomial method introduced by Beals et al. The quantum adversary tool is very useful to prove good lower bounds for many graph and algebra problems. The part of the thesis containing the original results is organized in two parts. In the first part we consider the graph problems. In Chapter 5 we give a short summary of known quantum graph algorithms. In Chapter 6 to 8 we study the complexity of our new algorithms for matching problems, graph traversal and independent set problems on quantum computers. In the second part of our thesis we present new quantum algorithms for algebraic problems. In Chapter 9 to 10 we consider group testing problems and prove quantum complexity bounds for important problems from linear algebra. (orig.)

Left Artinian Algebraic Algebras

S. Akbari; M. Arian-Nejad
2001-01-01
Let R be a left artinian central F-algebra, T(R) = J(R) + [R, R],and U(R) the group of units of R. As one of our results, we show that, if R is algebraic and char F = 0, then the number of simple components of -R = R/J(R)is greater than or equal to dimF R/T(R). We show that, when char F = 0 or F is uncountable, R is algebraic over F if and only if [R, R] is algebraic over F. As another approach, we prove that R is algebraic over F if and only if the derived subgroup of U(R) is algebraic over F. Also, we present an elementary proof for a special case of an old question due to Jacobson.

The nuclear collective models introduced by Bohr, Mottelson and Rainwater, together with the Mayer-Jensen shell model, have provided the central framework for the development of nuclear physics. This paper reviews the microscopic evolution of the collective models and their underlying foundations. In particular, it is shown that the Bohr-Mottelson models have expressions as macroscopic limits of microscopic models that have precisely defined expressions in many-nucleon quantum mechanics. Understanding collective models in this way is especially useful because it enables the analysis of nuclear properties in terms of them to be revisited and reassessed in the light of their microscopic foundations.

We study boundary conditions and defects in a three-dimensional topological sigma-model with a complex symplectic target space X (the Rozansky-Witten model). We show that boundary conditions correspond to complex Lagrangian submanifolds in X equipped with complex fibrations. The set of boundary conditions has the structure of a 2-category; morphisms in this 2-category are interpreted physically as one-dimensional defect lines separating parts of the boundary with different boundary conditions. This 2-category is a categorification of the Z{sub 2}-graded derived category of X; it is also related to categories of matrix factorizations and a categorification of deformation quantization (quantization of symmetric monoidal categories). In Appendix B we describe a deformation of the B-model and the associated category of branes by forms of arbitrary even degree.

Conformal manifolds in four dimensions and chiral algebras
Buican, Matthew; Nishinaka, Takahiro
2016-11-01
Any { N }=2 superconformal field theory (SCFT) in four dimensions has a sector of operators related to a two-dimensional chiral algebra containing a Virasoro sub-algebra. Moreover, there are well-known examples of isolated SCFTs whose chiral algebra is a Virasoro algebra. In this note, we consider the chiral algebras associated with interacting { N }=2 SCFTs possessing an exactly marginal deformation that can be interpreted as a gauge coupling (i.e., at special points on the resulting conformal manifolds, free gauge fields appear that decouple from isolated SCFT building blocks). At any point on these conformal manifolds, we argue that the associated chiral algebras possess at least three generators. In addition, we show that there are examples of SCFTs realizing such a minimal chiral algebra: they are certain points on the conformal manifold obtained by considering the low-energy limit of type IIB string theory on the three complex-dimensional hypersurface singularity {x}13+{x}23+{x}33+α {x}1{x}2{x}3+{w}2=0. The associated chiral algebra is the { A }(6) theory of Feigin, Feigin, and Tipunin. As byproducts of our work, we argue that (i) a collection of isolated theories can be conformally gauged only if there is a SUSY moduli space associated with the corresponding symmetry current moment maps in each sector, and (ii) { N }=2 SCFTs with a≥slant c have hidden fermionic symmetries (in the sense of fermionic chiral algebra generators).
Noncommutative physics on Lie algebras, Z_2^n lattices and Clifford algebras
Majid, S
2004-01-01
We survey noncommutative spacetimes with coordinates being enveloping algebras of Lie algebras. We also explain how to do differential geometry on noncommutative spaces that are obtained from commutative ones via a Moyal-product type cocycle twist, such as the noncommutative torus, $\\theta$-spaces and Clifford algebras. The latter are noncommutative deformations of the finite lattice $(Z_2)^n$ and we compute their noncommutative de Rham cohomology and moduli of solutions of Maxwell's equations. We exactly quantize noncommutative U(1)-Yang-Mills theory on $Z_2\\times Z_2$ in a path integral approach.

Relativistic theory of tidal Love numbers
Binnington, Taylor; Poisson, Eric
2009-01-01
In Newtonian gravitational theory, a tidal Love number relates the mass multipole moment created by tidal forces on a spherical body to the applied tidal field. The Love number is dimensionless, and it encodes information about the body's internal structure. We present a relativistic theory of Love numbers, which applies to compact bodies with strong internal gravities; the theory extends and completes a recent work by Flanagan and Hinderer, which revealed that the tidal Love number of a neut...

After taking into account the Slavnov-Taylor identities for the couplings as generators of a Hopf ideal, we find Hopf subalgebras in the c...

Symmetry algebras in Chern-Simons theories with boundary: canonical approach
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Park, Mu-In. E-mail: mipark@physics.sogang.ac.kr
1999-04-05
I consider the classical Kac-Moody algebra and Virasoro algebra in Chern-Simons theory with boundary within Dirac's canonical method and Noether's procedure. It is shown that the usual (bulk) Gauss law constraint becomes a second-class constraint because of the boundary effect. From this fact, the Dirac bracket can be constructed explicitly without introducing additional gauge conditions and the classical Kac-Moody and Virasoro algebras are obtained within the usual Dirac method. The equivalence to the symplectic reduction method is presented and the connection to the Banados' work is clarified. Also the generalization to the Yang-Mills-Chern-Simons theory is considered where the diffeomorphism symmetry is broken by the (three-dimensional) Yang-Mills term. In this case, the same Kac-Moody algebras are obtained although the two theories are sharply different in the canonical structures. Both models realize the holography principle explicitly and the pure CS theory reveals the correspondence of the Chern-Simons theory with boundary/conformal field theory, which is more fundamental and generalizes the conjectured anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence.
Weierstrass preparation and algebraic invariants
Harbater, David; Krashen, Daniel
2011-01-01
We prove a form of the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem for normal algebraic curves over complete discrete valuation rings. While the more traditional algebraic form of Weierstrass Preparation applies just to the projective line over a base, our version allows more general curves. This result is then used to obtain applications concerning the values of u-invariants, and on the period-index problem for division algebras, over fraction fields of complete two-dimensional rings. Our approach uses patching methods and matrix factorization results that can be viewed as analogs of Cartan's Lemma.

Cluster Algebras and the Positive Grassmannian
Paulos, Miguel F
2014-01-01
Plabic graphs are intimately connected to the positroid stratification of the positive Grassmannian. The duals to these graphs are quivers, and it is possible to associate to them cluster algebras. For the top-cell graph of $Gr_{+}(k,n)$, this cluster algebra is the homogeneous coordinate ring of the corresponding positroid variety. We prove that the same statement holds for plabic graphs describing lower dimensional cells. In this way we obtain a map from the positroid strata onto cluster subalgebras of $Gr_{+}(k,n)$. We explore some of the consequences of this map for tree-level scattering amplitudes in $\\mathcal N=4$ super Yang-Mills theory.

Lax operator algebras and Hamiltonian integrable hierarchies
Sheinman, Oleg K
2009-01-01
We consider the theory of Lax equations in complex simple and reductive classical Lie algebras with the spectral parameter on a Riemann surface of finite genus. Our approach is based on the new objects -- the Lax operator algebras, and develops the approach of I.Krichever treating the $\\gl(n)$ case. For every Lax operator considered as the mapping sending a point of the cotangent bundle on the space of extended Tyrin data to an element of the corresponding Lax operator algebra we construct the hierarchy of mutually commuting flows given by Lax equations and prove that those are Hamiltonian with respect to the Krichever-Phong symplectic structure. The corresponding Hamiltonians give integrable finite-dimensional Hitchin-type systems. For example we derive elliptic $A_n$, $C_n$, $D_n$ Calogero-Moser systems in frame of our approach.
Vedas and the Development of Arithmetic and Algebra
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Gurudeo A. Tularam
2010-01-01
Full Text Available Problem statement: Algebra developed in three stages: rhetorical or prose algebra, syncopated or abbreviated algebra and symbolic algebra-known as school algebra. School algebra developed rather early in India and the literature now suggests that the first civilization to develop symbolic algebra was the Vedic Indians. Approach: Philosophical ideas of the time influenced the development of the decimal system and arithmetic and that in turn led to algebra. Indeed, symbolic algebraic ideas are deep rooted in Vedic philosophy. The Vedic arithmetic and mathematics were of a high level at an early period and the Hindus used algebraic ideas to generate formulas simplifying calculations. Results: In the main, they developed formulas to understand the physical world satisfying the needs of religion (apara and para vidya. While geometrical focus, logic and proof type are features of Greek mathematics, boldness of conception, abstraction, symbolism are essentially in Indian mathematics. From such a history study, a number of implications can be drawn regarding the learning of algebra. Real life, imaginative and creative problems that encourage risk should be the focus in student learning; allowing students freely move between numbers, magnitudes and symbols rather than taking separate static or unchanging view. A move from concrete to pictorial to symbolic modes was present in ancient learning. Real life practical needs motivated the progress to symbolic algebra. The use of rich context based problems that stimulate and motivate students to raise levels higher to transfer knowledge should be the focus of learning. Conclusion/Recommendations: The progress from arithmetic to algebra in India was achieved through different modes of learning, risk taking, problem solving and higher order thinking all in line with current emphasis in mathematics education but at rather early stage in human history.
Pattern vectors from algebraic graph theory.
Wilson, Richard C; Hancock, Edwin R; Luo, Bin
2005-07-01
Graph structures have proven computationally cumbersome for pattern analysis. The reason for this is that, before graphs can be converted to pattern vectors, correspondences must be established between the nodes of structures which are potentially of different size. To overcome this problem, in this paper, we turn to the spectral decomposition of the Laplacian matrix. We show how the elements of the spectral matrix for the Laplacian can be used to construct symmetric polynomials that are permutation invariants. The coefficients of these polynomials can be used as graph features which can be encoded in a vectorial manner. We extend this representation to graphs in which there are unary attributes on the nodes and binary attributes on the edges by using the spectral decomposition of a Hermitian property matrix that can be viewed as a complex analogue of the Laplacian. To embed the graphs in a pattern space, we explore whether the vectors of invariants can be embedded in a low-dimensional space using a number of alternative strategies, including principal components analysis (PCA), multidimensional scaling (MDS), and locality preserving projection (LPP). Experimentally, we demonstrate that the embeddings result in well-defined graph clusters. Our experiments with the spectral representation involve both synthetic and real-world data. The experiments with synthetic data demonstrate that the distances between spectral feature vectors can be used to discriminate between graphs on the basis of their structure. The real-world experiments show that the method can be used to locate clusters of graphs.

Lax operator algebras and Hamiltonian integrable hierarchies

Sheinman, Oleg K [Steklov Mathematical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow (Russian Federation)
2011-02-28
This paper considers the theory of Lax equations with a spectral parameter on a Riemann surface, proposed by Krichever in 2001. The approach here is based on new objects, the Lax operator algebras, taking into consideration an arbitrary complex simple or reductive classical Lie algebra. For every Lax operator, regarded as a map sending a point of the cotangent bundle on the space of extended Tyurin data to an element of the corresponding Lax operator algebra, a hierarchy of mutually commuting flows given by the Lax equations is constructed, and it is proved that they are Hamiltonian with respect to the Krichever-Phong symplectic structure. The corresponding Hamiltonians give integrable finite-dimensional Hitchin-type systems. For example, elliptic A{sub n}, C{sub n}, and D{sub n} Calogero-Moser systems are derived in the framework of our approach. Bibliography: 13 titles.

Constructions of Lie algebras and their modules
Seligman, George B
1988-01-01
This book deals with central simple Lie algebras over arbitrary fields of characteristic zero. It aims to give constructions of the algebras and their finite-dimensional modules in terms that are rational with respect to the given ground field. All isotropic algebras with non-reduced relative root systems are treated, along with classical anisotropic algebras. The latter are treated by what seems to be a novel device, namely by studying certain modules for isotropic classical algebras in which they are embedded. In this development, symmetric powers of central simple associative algebras, along with generalized even Clifford algebras of involutorial algebras, play central roles. Considerable attention is given to exceptional algebras. The pace is that of a rather expansive research monograph. The reader who has at hand a standard introductory text on Lie algebras, such as Jacobson or Humphreys, should be in a position to understand the results. More technical matters arise in some of the detailed arguments. T...

The indecomposable solvable Lie algebras with graded nilradical of maximal nilindex and a Heisenberg subalgebra of codimension one are analysed, and their generalized Casimir invariants are calculated. It is shown that rank one solvable algebras have a contact form, which implies the existence of an associated dynamical system. Moreover, due to the structure of the quadratic Casimir operator of the nilradical, these algebras contain a maximal non-abelian quasi-classical Lie algebra of dimension 2n - 1, indicating that gauge theories (with ghosts) are possible on these subalgebras.
Topics from the theory of numbers
Grosswald, Emil
1984-01-01
Many of the important and creative developments in modern mathematics resulted from attempts to solve questions that originate in number theory. The publication of Emil Grosswald’s classic text presents an illuminating introduction to number theory. Combining the historical developments with the analytical approach, Topics from the Theory of Numbers offers the reader a diverse range of subjects to investigate, including: * divisibility * congruences * the Riemann zeta function * Diophantine equations and Fermat’s conjecture * the theory of partitions Comprehensive in nature, Topics from the Theory of Numbers is an ideal text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students alike. "In my opinion it is excellent. It is carefully written and represents clearly a work of a scholar who loves and understands his subject. One can only wish more authors would take such pains and would be as good and honest expositors as Grosswald." — Marc Kac "This book is designed for use in a first course in number theory at...
Cardinal invariants on Boolean algebras
Monk, J Donald
2014-01-01
This book is concerned with cardinal number valued functions defined for any Boolean algebra. Examples of such functions are independence, which assigns to each Boolean algebra the supremum of the cardinalities of its free subalgebras, and cellularity, which gives the supremum of cardinalities of sets of pairwise disjoint elements. Twenty-one such functions are studied in detail, and many more in passing. The questions considered are the behaviour of these functions under algebraic operations such as products, free products, ultraproducts, and their relationships to one another. Assuming familiarity with only the basics of Boolean algebras and set theory, through simple infinite combinatorics and forcing, the book reviews current knowledge about these functions, giving complete proofs for most facts. A special feature of the book is the attention given to open problems, of which 185 are formulated. Based on Cardinal Functions on Boolean Algebras (1990) and Cardinal Invariants on Boolean Algebras (1996) by the...
Cryptographic applications of analytic number theory complexity lower bounds and pseudorandomness
2003-01-01
The book introduces new ways of using analytic number theory in cryptography and related areas, such as complexity theory and pseudorandom number generation. Key topics and features: - various lower bounds on the complexity of some number theoretic and cryptographic problems, associated with classical schemes such as RSA, Diffie-Hellman, DSA as well as with relatively new schemes like XTR and NTRU - a series of very recent results about certain important characteristics (period, distribution, linear complexity) of several commonly used pseudorandom number generators, such as the RSA generator, Blum-Blum-Shub generator, Naor-Reingold generator, inversive generator, and others - one of the principal tools is bounds of exponential sums, which are combined with other number theoretic methods such as lattice reduction and sieving - a number of open problems of different level of difficulty and proposals for further research - an extensive and up-to-date bibliography Cryptographers and number theorists will find th...

This book presents a complete and accurate study of algebraic circuits, digital circuits whose performance can be associated with any algebraic structure. The authors distinguish between basic algebraic circuits, such as Linear Feedback Shift Registers (LFSRs) and cellular automata, and algebraic circuits, such as finite fields or Galois fields. The book includes a comprehensive review of representation systems, of arithmetic circuits implementing basic and more complex operations, and of the residue number systems (RNS). It presents a study of basic algebraic circuits such as LFSRs and cellular automata as well as a study of circuits related to Galois fields, including two real cryptographic applications of Galois fields.

In the present paper we describe a specialization of prinjective Ringel-Hall algebra to 1, for prinjective modules over incidence algebras of posets of finite prinjective type,by generators and relations.This gives us a generalisation of Serre relations for semisimple Lie algebras.Connections of prinjective Ringel-Hall algebras with classical Lie algebras are also discussed.

The motions of points, lines, and planes, embedded in a rigid body are expressed in a unified algebraic framework using a Clifford algebra. A Clifford algebra based displacement operator is addressed and its higher derivatives from which the coordinate-independent characteristic numbers with simple geometric meaning are defined. Because of the coordinate independent feature, no tedious coordinate transformation typically found in the conventional instantaneous invariants methods is needed.

This paper proposes two boundedarithmetic operations, which are easily realized with current signals.Based on these two operations, a bounded algebra system suitable fordescribing current-mode digital circuits is developed and itsrelationship with the Boolean algebra, which is suitable for representingvoltage-mode digital circuits, is investigated. Design procedure forcurrent-mode circuits using the proposed algebra system is demonstratedon a number of common circuit elements which are used to realizearithmetic operations, such as adders and multipliers.

@@ Killing form plays a key role in the theory of semisimple Lie algebras. It is natural to extend the study to Lie algebras with a nondegenerate symmetric invariant bilinear form. Such a Lie algebra is generally called a quadratic Lie algebra which occur naturally in physics[10,12,13]. Besides semisimple Lie algebras, interesting quadratic Lie algebras include the Kac-Moody algebras and the Extended Affine Lie algebras.
Noncommutative Galois Extension and Graded q-Differential Algebra
Abramov, Viktor
2015-01-01
We show that a semi-commutative Galois extension of a unital associative algebra can be endowed with the structure of a graded q-differential algebra. We study the first and higher order noncommutative differential calculus of semi-commutative Galois extension induced by the graded q-differential algebra. As an example we consider the quaternions which can be viewed as the semi-commutative Galois extension of complex numbers.
