Introduction a la Topologie

Ce cours de topologie a été dispensé en licence à l'Université de Rennes 1 de 1999 à 2002. Toutes les constructions permettant de parler de limite et de continuité sont d'abord dégagées, puis l'utilité de los angeles compacité pour ramener des problèmes de complexité infinie à l'étude d'un nombre fini de cas est explicitée.

Spaces of Constant Curvature

This e-book is the 6th variation of the vintage areas of continuous Curvature, first released in 1967, with the former (fifth) variation released in 1984. It illustrates the excessive measure of interaction among staff conception and geometry. The reader will enjoy the very concise remedies of riemannian and pseudo-riemannian manifolds and their curvatures, of the illustration conception of finite teams, and of symptoms of modern growth in discrete subgroups of Lie teams.

For the spectral counting function, this follows from the following computation: ∞ ∞ Nν (x) = #{j : lj−1 ≤ x/k} = 1= k=1 j: k·l−1 ≤x j k=1 ∞ NL k=1 x . k Observe that this is a ﬁnite sum, since NL (y) = 0 for y < l1−1 . The second expression is derived similarly: ∞ ∞ Nν (x) = 1= j=1 k≤lj x [lj x]. j=1 For the spectral zeta function, we have successively ∞ ζν (s) = k,j=1 k −s ljs = ∞ ∞ ljs j=1 k −s = ζL (s)ζ(s). k=1 This completes the proof of the theorem. 37) for Nν (x), we can derive Weyl’s asymptotic law for fractal strings.

RN and gaps scaled by g1 , . . 4). 3. The gaps of L have lengths g1 L, . . , gK L. By abuse of language, we will usually refer to the quantities g1 , . . , gK as the gaps of the self-similar string L. 4. 1. Then the geometric zeta function of this string has a meromorphic continuation to the whole complex plane, given by ζL (s) = K s k=1 gk , N s j=1 rj Ls 1− for s ∈ C. 10) Here, L = ζL (1) is the total length of L, which is also the length of I, the initial interval from which L is constructed.

We note that by construction, the boundary ∂Ω of the Cantor string is equal to the ternary Cantor set. In general, the volume of the tubular neighborhood of the boundary of L is given by (see [LapPo2, Eq. 2), p. 48]) lj = 2ε · NL 2ε + V (ε) = j: lj ≥2ε j: lj <2ε 1 2ε lj . 3 When the two endpoints of an interval of length lj are covered by intervals of radius ε, then these discs overlap if lj < 2ε, covering a length lj , or they do not overlap if lj ≥ 2ε, in which case they cover a length of 2ε.
