This e-book provides a set of papers on similar themes: topology of knots and knot-like items (such as curves on surfaces) and topology of Legendrian knots and hyperlinks in three-d touch manifolds. Featured is the paintings of foreign specialists in knot idea ("quantum" knot invariants, knot invariants of finite type), in symplectic and call topology, and in singularity thought. The interaction of various tools from those fields makes this quantity precise within the learn of Legendrian knots and knot-like gadgets reminiscent of wave fronts. a very attractive characteristic of the quantity is its overseas importance. the quantity effectively embodies a good collaborative attempt by way of all over the world specialists from Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Poland, Russia, Sweden, the U.K., and the U.S.

A major transition of curiosity from fixing linear partial differential equations to fixing nonlinear ones has taken position over the last or 3 a long time. the supply of higher pcs has usually made numerical experimentations development speedier than the theoretical figuring out of nonlinear partial differential equations.

Nonautonomous dynamics describes the qualitative habit of evolutionary differential and distinction equations, whose right-hand aspect is explicitly time established. Over fresh years, the idea of such structures has constructed right into a hugely lively box relating to, but recognizably targeted from that of classical self sufficient dynamical structures.

Unfortunately, this is not sufficient for the study of plane curves. Indeed, the canonical framing of the Legendrian lift of a regular plane curve is blackboard only with respect to the projection which is not very convenient to consider if one wants to construct Vassiliev type theory for plane curves.

It can be shown that this cobordism relation is an equivalence relation between embedded oriented Legendre submanifolds of }vI. The union of submanifolds induces a semi-group structure on the set of Legendre cobordism classes. 1. This semi-group is always a group. The inverse of the Legendre cobordism class of l is the class of -l, the Legendre sub manifold obtained from l by reversing its orientation.

Furthermore, they are said to be J- -cobordant if none of the slices Wt (t E [0, 1]) features a J- -singularity. The wave fronts of two Legendre cobordant Legendre links of ST*lR2 are cob ordant, but the converse does not hold. The difference consists in the Morse perestroikas (reconstructions) shown in Figure 10, which change the index, but not the Maslov index.
