1.  Group Cohomology and Algebraic Cycles By: Burt Totaro Publisher: Cambridge University Press Publication Date: 30APR2014 Insert Date: 25JUL2014 Slots: 1.0  Overview: Group Cohomology and Algebraic Cycles
Group cohomology reveals a deep relationship between algebra and topology, and its recent applications have provided important insights into the Hodge conjecture and algebraic geometry more broadly. This book presents a coherent suite of computational tools for the study of group cohomology and algebraic cycles. Early chapters synthesize background material from topology, algebraic geometry, and commutative algebra so readers do not have to form connections between the literatures on their own. Later chapters demonstrate Peter Symonds's influential proof of David Benson's regularity...

3.  Modeling Digital Switching Circuits with Linear Algebra By: Mitchell A. Thornton Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Publishers Publication Date: 01APR2014 Insert Date: 16MAY2014 Slots: 1.0  Overview: Modeling Digital Switching Circuits with Linear Algebra Modeling Digital Switching Circuits with Linear Algebra describes an approach for modeling digital information and circuitry that is an alternative to Boolean algebra. While the Boolean algebraic model has been wildly successful and is responsible for many advances in modern information technology, the approach described in this book offers new insight and different ways of solving problems. Modeling the bit as a vector instead of a scalar value in the set {0, 1} allows digital circuits to be characterized with transfer functions in the form of a linear transformation matrix. The use of...

13.  By: Steven H. Weintraub Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Publishers Publication Date: 08DEC2009 Insert Date: 23AUG2013 Slots: 1.0  Overview: Jordan Canonical Form Jordan Canonical Form (JCF) is one of the most important, and useful, concepts in linear algebra. The JCF of a linear transformation, or of a matrix, encodes all of the structural information about that linear transformation, or matrix. This book is a careful development of JCF. After beginning with background material, we introduce Jordan Canonical Form and related notions: eigenvalues, (generalized) eigenvectors, and the characteristic and minimum polynomials. We decide the question of diagonalizability, and prove the CayleyHamilton theorem. Then we present a careful and complete proof of...
