# C*-Algebra Extensions and K-Homology by Ronald G. Douglas

By Ronald G. Douglas

Recent advancements in assorted components of arithmetic recommend the research of a undeniable category of extensions of C*-algebras. right here, Ronald Douglas makes use of tools from homological algebra to review this selection of extensions. He first exhibits that equivalence periods of the extensions of the compact metrizable area X shape an abelian workforce Ext (X). moment, he indicates that the correspondence X ? Ext (X) defines a homotopy invariant covariant functor which could then be used to outline a generalized homology concept. developing the periodicity of order , the writer exhibits, following Atiyah, concrete consciousness of K-homology is obtained.

Quaternions and rotation sequences: a primer with applications to orbits, aerospace, and virtual reality

Ever because the Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton brought quaternions within the 19th century--a feat he celebrated via carving the founding equations right into a stone bridge--mathematicians and engineers were enthusiastic about those mathematical items. this day, they're utilized in purposes as quite a few as describing the geometry of spacetime, guiding the distance commute, and constructing laptop purposes in digital fact.

Defines the trivial extension. The properties necessary to be a covariant functor follow easily. Now the most surprising thing about Ext (when we were first studying it and still today) is the fact that Ext(X) is an abelian group. In no situation were algebra extensions known to form a group and we were led to expect it only because Ext (X) was a group for the cases we could calculate. lr original proof of this was quite complicated and came after the construction of most of the other machinery in [20].
