Estimating the states of the Kauffman bracket skein module

Doug Bullock (1998)

Banach Center Publications

The states of the title are a set of knot types which suffice to create a generating set for the Kauffman bracket skein module of a manifold. The minimum number of states is a topological invariant, but quite difficult to compute. In this paper we show that a set of states determines a generating set for the ring of S L 2 ( C ) characters of the fundamental group, which in turn provides estimates of the invariant.

Generalized Hurwitz maps of the type S × V → W, anti-involutions, and quantum braided Clifford algebras

Julian Ławrynowicz, Jakub Rembieliński, Francesco Succi (1996)

Banach Center Publications

The notion of a J 3 -triple is studied in connection with a geometrical approach to the generalized Hurwitz problem for quadratic or bilinear forms. Some properties are obtained, generalizing those derived earlier by the present authors for the Hurwitz maps S × V → V. In particular, the dependence of each scalar product involved on the symmetry or antisymmetry is discussed as well as the configurations depending on various choices of the metric tensors of scalar products of the basis elements. Then...

Hyperbolic-like manifolds, geometrical properties and holomorphic mappings

Grzegorz Boryczka, Luis Tovar (1996)

Banach Center Publications

The authors are dealing with the Dirichlet integral-type biholomorphic-invariant pseudodistance ρ X α ( z 0 , z ) [ ] introduced by Dolbeault and Ławrynowicz (1989) in connection with bordered holomorphic chains of dimension one. Several properties of the related hyperbolic-like manifolds are considered remarking the analogies with and differences from the familiar hyperbolic and Stein manifolds. Likewise several examples are treated in detail.

Invariant properties of the generalized canonical mappings

Stanisław Janeczko (1999)

Banach Center Publications

One of the fundamental objectives of the theory of symplectic singularities is to study the symplectic invariants appearing in various geometrical contexts. In the paper we generalize the symplectic cohomological invariant to the class of generalized canonical mappings. We analyze the global structure of Lagrangian Grassmannian in the product symplectic space and describe the local properties of generic symplectic relations.

What is a disk?

Kari Hag (1999)

Banach Center Publications

This paper should be considered as a companion report to F.W. Gehring’s survey lectures “Characterizations of quasidisks” given at this Summer School [7]. Notation, definitions and background results are given in that paper. In particular, D is a simply connected proper subdomain of R 2 unless otherwise stated and D* denotes the exterior of D in R ¯ 2 . Many of the characterizations of quasidisks have been motivated by looking at properties of euclidean disks. It is therefore natural to go back and ask...
