Genera of the arborescent links. : a norm for the homology of 3-manifolds / William P. Thurston by David Gabai ( Book )
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Characteristic forms by Shiing-Shen Chern ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Starting with the notion of Stiefel-Whitney classes, Chern moves on to the case of a complex vector bundle and the definition of a characteristic form. These concepts lead to the definition of the celebrated Chern-Simons forms and a certain global conformal invariant that has proven to be extremely useful in physics
Short encodings of evolving structures by Daniel D Sleator ( Book )
3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We show for example that [omega](nlogn) applications of the associative and commutative laws are required in the worst case to transform an n-variable expression over a binary associative, commutative operation into some other equivalent expression. Similarly, we show that [omega](nlogn) 'diagonal flips' are required in the worst case to transform one n-vertex numbered triangulated planar graph into some other one. Both of these lower bounds have matching upper bounds. An O(nlogn) upper bound for associative, commutative operations was known previously, whereas we obtain here an O(nlogn) upper bound for diagonal flips."
