By J. L. Colliot-Thelene, K. Kato, P. Vojta

This quantity comprises 3 lengthy lecture sequence via J.L. Colliot-Thelene, Kazuya Kato and P. Vojta. Their subject matters are respectively the relationship among algebraic K-theory and the torsion algebraic cycles on an algebraic sort, a brand new method of Iwasawa concept for Hasse-Weil L-function, and the functions of arithemetic geometry to Diophantine approximation. They comprise many new effects at a truly complex point, but additionally surveys of the cutting-edge at the topic with entire, distinct profs and many historical past. for that reason they are often invaluable to readers with very diversified history and adventure.

**The Novikov Conjecture: Geometry And Algebra**

Those lecture notes comprise a guided travel to the Novikov Conjecture and similar conjectures as a result of Baum-Connes, Borel and Farrell-Jones. they start with fundamentals approximately larger signatures, Whitehead torsion and the s-Cobordism Theorem. Then an creation to surgical procedure thought and a model of the meeting map is gifted.

**Knots: Mathematics with a Twist**

Knot concept is one region of arithmetic that has a tremendous variety of functions. the particular performance of many organic molecules is derived mostly incidentally they twist and fold when they are created. through the years, loads of arithmetic has been invented to explain and examine knots.

This is how it is deﬁned in the physics literature, for example in [27]. In this language, knowing that a is a zig or a zag of a zig-zag path or ﬂow, is equivalent to knowing whether the zig-zag path or ﬂow turns left or right at the head of a. Since there exists a unique zig-zag path or ﬂow containing any given arrow a as a zig (respectively zag), we will refer to this as the zig-zag path or ﬂow generated by the zig (respectively zag) a. In particular, the lift of a single zig or zag of a zig-zag path η to Q, (remembering that it is a zig or zag), generates a zig-zag ﬂow η which projects down to η.

5 it intersects the boundary of f in a zig and a zag. The zag of η is a zig of a uniquely deﬁned zig-zag ﬂow η ∈ X (f ) which crosses η from right to left. 14 this implies that intersection number is strictly positive. Therefore the ray generated by [η ] is at an angle less than π in an anti-clockwise direction from γ. 12. The local zig-zag fan ξ(f ) at the face f of Q, is the complete fan of strongly convex rational polyhedral cones in H1 (Q) whose rays are generated by the homology classes corresponding to zig-zag ﬂows in X (f ).

First we observe that if the lattice polygon is a square of arbitary size, then it is not hard to write down a ‘good’ conﬁguration of curves. For example, if the polygon is the one shown on the left below, then there should be three curves with each of the classes (1, 0), (−1, 0), (0, 1), (0, −1) and these can be arranged as shown on the right. Gulotta’s algorithm transforms a ‘good’ conﬁguration of curves deﬁning a dimer model into another one, in an explicit way that corresponds to removing a triangle from the lattice polygon.
