Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology

Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2002
Number of pages: 323
Noncommutative localization is a powerful algebraic technique for constructing new rings by inverting elements, matrices and more generally morphisms of modules. The applications to topology are via the noncommutative localizations of the fundamental group rings.

Mathematical gauge theory studies connections on principal bundles. The book provides an introduction to current research, covering material from Heegaard Floer homology, contact geometry, smooth four-manifold topology, and symplectic four-manifolds.

The text covers manifolds and differential forms for an audience of undergraduates who have taken a typical calculus sequence, including basic linear algebra and multivariable calculus up to the integral theorems of Green, Gauss and Stokes.

This book lays the foundations of differential calculus in infinite dimensions and discusses those applications in infinite dimensional differential geometry and global analysis not involving Sobolev completions and fixed point theory.

In this essay we wish to embark on the telling of a story which, almost certainly, stands only at its beginning. We shall discuss the links and the interaction between one very old subject, physics, and a much newer one, topology.
