The purpose of the book under review is to give a survey of the state-of-the-art knowledge concerning 3-manifold groups. The book assumes a fair amount of background in both (infinite) group theory and 3-manifold theory, but reminds the reader of essential definitions. It is very clearly written and includes citations to well-over other. In mathematics, an embedding (or imbedding) is one instance of some mathematical structure contained within another instance, such as a group that is a subgroup.. When some object X is said to be embedded in another object Y, the embedding is given by some injective and structure-preserving map f: X → precise meaning of "structure-preserving" depends on the kind of mathematical.

In this paper I give a completed topological characterization of Stein manifolds of complex dimension >2. Another paper (see [E14]) is devoted to new topogical obstructions for the existence of a Stein complex structure on real manifolds of dimension 4. Main results of the paper have been announced in [E13].Cited by: This book contains a collection of fifteen articles and is dedicated to the sixtieth birthdays of Lex Renner and Mohan Putcha, the pioneers of the field of algebraic monoids. Topics presented includ (semi)group theory, algebraic combinatorics, and the theory of algebraic group embeddings will benefit from this unique and broad compilation.

This section presents an introduction to the second edition of the book Graphs, Groups and Surface. The field of topological graph theory has expanded in the 10 years.. The nine chapters of the first edition are revised and updated. There are 32 new problems that are distributed among these chapters. GROUPS STEFAN FRIEDL Introduction In these lecture notes we will give a quick introduction to 3-manifolds, with a special emphasis on their fundamental groups. In the rst section we will show that given k 4 any nitely presented group is the fundamental group of a closed, oriented k{dimensional manifold. This is not the case for.

In particular, the authors are concerned with 1) determining which three-manifold groups are not cohopfian—that is, which three-manifold groups imbed properly in themselves; 2) finding the knot subgroups of a knot group; and 3) investigating when surgery on a knot \(K\) yields lens (or “lens-like”) spaces and how this relates to the knot subgroup structure of \(\pi _1(S^3-K)\).

Imbeddings of three-manifold groups. [Francisco González-Acuña; Wilbur C Whitten] -- This paper deals with the two broad questions of how 3-manifold groups imbed in one another and how such imbeddings relate to any corresponding [lowercase Greek]Pi₁-injective maps.

By standard reasons of algebraic geometry, in order to solve various problems on a homogeneous space, it is natural and helpful to compactify it while keeping track of the group action, i.e., to consider equivariant completions or, more generally, open embeddings of a given homogeneous space.

Such equivariant embeddings are the subject of this book. On representation varieties of 3–manifold groups MICHAEL KAPOVICH JOHN J MILLSON We prove universality theorems (“Murphy’s laws”) for representation varieties of fun-damental groups of closed 3–dimensional manifolds.

We show that germs of SL.2/– representation schemes of such groups are essentially the same as germs of schemes. The Floer groups of a general three-manifold are then defined and their properties studied in detail.

Two final chapters are devoted to the calculation of Floer groups and to applications of the. Finally, as an application of Gromov's work, the author introduces Haefliger's classification theorem of foliations on open manifolds.
