Recent advances in hardware performance and software technology have made possible a wholly different approach to computational mathematics. Symbolic computation systems have revolutionized the field, building upon established and recent mathematical theory to open new possibilities in virtually every industry. Formerly dubbed Scratchpad, AXIOM is a powerful new symbolic and numerical system developed at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. AXIOM's scope, structure, and organization make it outstanding among computer algebra systems. AXIOM: The Scientific Computation System is a companion to the AXIOM system. The text is written in a straightforward style and begins with a spirited foreword by David and Gregory Chudnovsky. The book gives the reader a technical introduction to AXIOM, interacts with the system's tutorial, accesses algorithms newly developed by the symbolic computation community, and presents advanced programming and problem solving techniques. Eighty illustrations and eight pages of color inserts accompany text detailing methods used in the 2D and 3D interactive graphics system, and over 2500 example input lines help the reader solve formerly intractable problems.

More recently, Khovanov introduced link homology as a generalization of the Jones polynomial to homology of chain complexes and Ozsvath and Szabo developed Heegaard-Floer homology, that lifts the Alexander polynomial. These two significantly different theories are closely related and the dependencies are the object of intensive study. These ideas mark the beginning of a new era in knot theory that includes relationships with four-dimensional problems and the creation of new forms of algebraic topology relevant to knot theory. The theory of skein modules is an older development also having its roots in Jones discovery. Another significant and related development is the theory of virtual knots originated independently by Kauffman and by Goussarov Polyak and Viro in the '90s. All these topics and their relationships are the subject of the survey papers in this book.

Traditionally a subject of number theory, continued fractions appear in dynamical systems, algebraic geometry, topology, and even celestial mechanics. The rise of computational geometry has resulted in renewed interest in multidimensional generalizations of continued fractions. Numerous classical theorems have been extended to the multidimensional case, casting light on phenomena in diverse areas of mathematics. This book introduces a new geometric vision of continued fractions. It covers several applications to questions related to such areas as Diophantine approximation, algebraic number theory, and toric geometry. The reader will find an overview of current progress in the geometric theory of multidimensional continued fractions accompanied by currently open problems. Whenever possible, we illustrate geometric constructions with figures and examples. Each chapter has exercises useful for undergraduate or graduate courses.

This book is aimed at two kinds of readers: firstly, people working in or near mathematics, who are curious about continued fractions; and secondly, senior or graduate students who would like an extensive introduction to the analytic theory of continued fractions. The book contains several recent results and new angles of approach and thus should be of interest to researchers throughout the field. The first five chapters contain an introduction to the basic theory, while the last seven chapters present a variety of applications. Finally, an appendix presents a large number of special continued fraction expansions. This very readable book also contains many valuable examples and problems.

This book presents the arithmetic and metrical theory of regular continued fractions and is intended to be a modern version of A. Ya. Khintchine's classic of the same title. Besides new and simpler proofs for many of the standard topics, numerous numerical examples and applications are included (the continued fraction of e, Ostrowski representations and t-expansions, period lengths of quadratic surds, the general Pell's equation, homogeneous and inhomogeneous diophantine approximation, Hall's theorem, the Lagrange and Markov spectra, asymmetric approximation, etc). Suitable for upper level undergraduate and beginning graduate students, the presentation is self-contained and the metrical results are developed as strong laws of large numbers.

eigenen Begriffssystemen bereichert worden, die man nicht gerade als jedermann geläufig voraussetzen darf. Die Versuchung lag nahe, durch Heranziehung solcher Theorien den Kettenbrüchen einen gelehrteren Anstrich zu geben. Aber dadurch wäre nicht nur die Lektüre unnötig erschwert, sondern das Wesen der Dinge zumeist verschleiert worden, und es bestände die Gefahr, daß mancher Leser den künstlichen Anstrich für das Wesentliche halten und die harmlose Unschuld, die sich darunter verbirgt, vielleicht gar nicht mehr sehen würde. Deshalb habe ich auf logistische Hieroglyphen, geheimnisvolle "Räume" usw. verzichtet und bin bei der klassischen Wortsprache und den klassischen Rechenmethoden ge blieben. Lediglich zweireihige Matrizes wurden gelegentlich verwandt, nämlich da, wo sie einen wirklichen methodischen Vorteil bieten. Der Matrixkalkül ist ja heute in viel weiteren Kreisen bekannt als vor 40 Jahren und gehört fast schon zu den Elementen; ich habe ihn trotzdem nicht vorausgesetzt, sondern in § 5 das Wenige, was davon gebraucht wird, kurz zusammengestellt. In neuerer Zeit haben die Kettenbrüche auch in der augewandten Mathematik, z. B. in der Elektrotechnik und bei analytischen Approximationsmethoden, Verwendung ge funden. Auch den Vertretern dieser Disziplinen, sowie manchen interessierten Laien, die es trotz unseres materialistischen Zeitalters doch immer noch gibt, glaube ich durch leichte Verständlichkeit besser zu dienen als durch Paradieren mit einer übertriebenen Gelehrsamkeit. Auf die Beigabe einer möglichst lückenlosen Bibliographie habe ich ebenso wie früher verzichtet; man findet eine solche, die von den Anfängen bis ins erste Jahrzehnt unseres Jahrhunderts reicht, bei Wölffing 1.
