The Mereon matrix: unity, perspective and paradox

Mereon is an method of the unification of data that will depend on complete structures modelling. it's a medical framework that charts the sequential, emergent development strategy of platforms. A dynamic constitution, Mereon presents perception and a brand new method of basic platforms concept and non-linear technological know-how. Mereon advanced via a brand new method of polyhedral geometry and topology that's concerning the dynamics of the polyhedra.

C*-Algebra Extensions and K-Homology

Contemporary advancements in diversified parts of arithmetic recommend the research of a undeniable classification of extensions of C*-algebras. the following, Ronald Douglas makes use of tools from homological algebra to review this selection of extensions. He first indicates that equivalence periods of the extensions of the compact metrizable house X shape an abelian crew Ext (X).

Clifford algebras and spinor structures : a special volume dedicated to the memory of Albert Crumeyrolle (1919-1992)
