Collected Works of Witold Hurewicz

Author: Witold Hurewicz
Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
ISBN: 9780821800119
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Mathematics

This book contains papers of the outstanding and versatile mathematician, Witold Hurewicz. Preceding the collection are introductory articles describing Hurewicz's contributions to Borel sets, dimension theory, and algebraic topology. Hurewicz first studied set theory and dimension, and his papers on this topic are especially clear and precise, making them accessible to beginning mathematicians. His work in algebraic topology is marked by five fundamental papers which provide an introduction to homotopy groups and the Hurewicz Theorem concerning the relation between homotopy and singular homology. These papers are included here in their original form along with English translations. Each paper in the collection is followed by a review from one of the major reviewing journals. These reviews were written by eminent mathematicians and serve as excellent abstracts for the papers.

Manchu Grammar

Author: Liliya M. Gorelova
Publisher: Brill Academic Pub
ISBN: UVA:X004635555
Release Date: 2002-01-01
Genre: Foreign Language Study

With the help of this long-awaited comprehensive grammar of Manchu, the official language in China during the Qing dynasty, access can be gained to the numerous official documents of more than 250 years of Chinese history immediately preceding the Republic. Taking into full account the scholarship on the subject from both China and Russia, the volume provides full coverage of the Manchu writing system, morphology and phonology. Special attention is given to syntax, until recently a conspicuous hiatus in Manchu linguistic studies. Also dealt with is Sibe, which the author convincingly argues to be a direct successor of Manchu vernacular, and its relation with classical Manchu. Many grammatical problems of Manchu are considered in a wider framework of the Manchu-Tungusic languages - the group to which Manchu belongs.Dr. Gorelova s grammar is a true reference work, indispensable for students of (Qing) China and Oriental languages.

This volume is the proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Quantum Communication, Computing , and Measurement, held in Capri in July 2000, and covers all areas of quantum information science, which has developed dramatically recently. An excellent overview of the current topics in the field, it discusses quantum information theory, quantum measurement theory, decoherence, and entanglement theory as the theoretical aspect of quantum information science. Also included are quantum communication systems, quantum computing, quantum cryptography, new quantum effects and their experiments, generation and detection of nonclassical light, and teleportation as applications of quantum information science. In addition, the result of the third international quantum communication award is introduced.
