This publication gathers suggestions of data throughout different fields –physics, electric engineering and computational technology – surveying present theories, discussing underlying notions of symmetry, and displaying how the ability of a process to tell apart itself pertains to info. the writer develops a proper technique utilizing team thought, resulting in the appliance of Burnside's Lemma to count number distinguishable states. this gives a device to quantify complexity and data ability in any actual system.

This publication represents a set of invited papers by means of awesome mathematicians in algebra, algebraic geometry, and quantity concept devoted to Vladimir Drinfeld. unique examine articles replicate the variety of Drinfeld's paintings, and his profound contributions to the Langlands software, quantum teams, and mathematical physics are paid specific consciousness.
Alexander Reznikov (1960-2003) used to be a super and hugely unique mathematician. This e-book offers 18 articles through in demand mathematicians and is devoted to his reminiscence. moreover it includes an influential, to date unpublished manuscript via Reznikov of publication size. The publication additional presents an intensive survey on Kleinian teams in larger dimensions and a few articles centering on Reznikov as an individual.
This quantity includes a concise exposition of the idea of finite teams, together with the speculation of modular representations. The rudiments of linear algebra and data of the easy strategies of workforce concept are important, if now not fullyyt vital, necessities for examining this ebook; many of the different necessities, resembling the idea of p-adic fields, are constructed within the textual content.
The Lie idea Workshop, based via Joe Wolf (UC, Berkeley), has been operating for over 20 years. first and foremost, the head universities in California and Utah hosted the conferences, which proceed to run on a quarterly foundation. specialists in illustration theory/Lie thought from a variety of components of the U.S., Europe, Asia (China, Japan, Singapore, Russia), Canada, and South and relevant the United States have been generally invited to offer talks at those conferences.
