During this variation, a collection of Supplementary Notes and comments has been extra on the finish, grouped in line with bankruptcy. a few of these name realization to next advancements, others upload additional rationalization or extra feedback. lots of the feedback are followed via a in short indicated facts, that is occasionally assorted from the only given within the reference pointed out. The record of references has been improved to incorporate many fresh contributions, however it remains to be now not meant to be exhaustive. John C. Oxtoby Bryn Mawr, April 1980 Preface to the 1st variation This booklet has major issues: the Baire classification theorem as a style for proving lifestyles, and the "duality" among degree and type. the class strategy is illustrated by way of numerous ordinary purposes, and the analogy among degree and classification is explored in all of its ramifications. To this finish, the weather of metric topology are reviewed and the central homes of Lebesgue degree are derived. It seems that Lebesgue integration isn't crucial for current purposes-the Riemann indispensable is enough. recommendations of basic degree idea and topology are brought, yet not only for the sake of generality. remember the fact that, the time period "category" refers constantly to Baire classification; it has not anything to do with the time period because it is utilized in homological algebra.

This is an creation to the idea of quantum teams with emphasis at the astonishing connections with knot concept and Drinfeld's fresh primary contributions. It provides the quantum teams hooked up to SL2 in addition to the fundamental techniques of the idea of Hopf algebras. assurance additionally makes a speciality of Hopf algebras that produce recommendations of the Yang-Baxter equation and gives an account of Drinfeld's dependent therapy of the monodromy of the Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equations.
