By W. J. Harvey,C. Maclachlan

This publication constitutes the court cases of a convention held on the college of Birmingham to mark the retirement of Professor A. M. Macbeath. The papers signify updated paintings on a vast spectrum of subject matters within the concept of discrete staff activities, starting from displays of finite teams during the certain examine of Fuchsian and crystallographic teams, to functions of crew activities in low dimensional topology, advanced research, algebraic geometry and quantity conception. For these wishing to pursue examine in those components, this quantity deals a priceless precis of latest inspiration and a resource of clean geometric insights.

Ever because the seminal paintings of Goppa on algebraic-geometry codes, rational issues on algebraic curves over finite fields were a big examine subject for algebraic geometers and coding theorists. the point of interest during this program of algebraic geometry to coding concept is on algebraic curves over finite fields with many rational issues (relative to the genus).

Ordinarily, Lie thought is a device to construct mathematical types for actual structures. lately, the rage is in the direction of geometrisation of the mathematical description of actual structures and gadgets. a geometrical method of a process yields in most cases a few idea of symmetry that is very useful in figuring out its constitution.

The seminar makes a speciality of a contemporary resolution, via the authors, of a protracted status challenge in regards to the good module type (of now not unavoidably finite dimensional representations) of a finite crew. The facts attracts on principles from commutative algebra, cohomology of teams, and sturdy homotopy idea. The unifying topic is a inspiration of aid which supplies a geometrical procedure for learning quite a few algebraic constructions.

Descriptive topology and practical research, with large fabric demonstrating new connections among them, are the topic of the 1st portion of this paintings. functions to areas of constant capabilities, topological Abelian teams, linear topological equivalence and to the separable quotient challenge are incorporated and are offered as open difficulties.
