By Richard Kaye, Dugald Macpherson

This remarkable survey of the learn of mathematical buildings information how either version theoretic tools and permutation theoretic equipment are priceless in describing such buildings. additionally, the booklet offers an advent to present study about the connections among version thought and permutation crew thought. made out of a suite of articles--some introductory, a few extra in-depth, and a few containing formerly unpublished research--the ebook will turn out valuable to graduate scholars assembly the topic for the 1st time in addition to to energetic researchers learning mathematical common sense and permutation crew theory.

Weyl Transforms

The useful analytic homes of Weyl transforms as bounded linear operators on $ L^{2}({\Bbb R}^{n}) $ are studied by way of the symbols of the transforms. The boundedness, the compactness, the spectrum and the sensible calculus of the Weyl remodel are proved intimately. New effects and methods at the boundedness and compactness of the Weyl transforms by way of the symbols in $ L^{r}({\Bbb R}^{2n}) $ and when it comes to the Wigner transforms of Hermite features are given.

Discrete Groups and Geometry

This quantity encompasses a number of refereed papers awarded in honour of A. M. Macbeath, one of many top researchers within the quarter of discrete teams. the topic has been of a lot present curiosity of overdue because it comprises the interplay of a couple of different issues akin to team concept, hyperbolic geometry, and intricate research.

Transformations of Manifolds and Application to Differential Equations

The interplay among differential geometry and partial differential equations has been studied because the final century. This dating is predicated at the incontrovertible fact that many of the neighborhood homes of manifolds are expressed when it comes to partial differential equations. The correspondence among yes sessions of manifolds and the linked differential equations could be priceless in methods.
