Symbolic Dynamics and Hyperbolic Groups

Gromov's concept of hyperbolic teams have had a huge effect in combinatorial staff conception and has deep connections with many branches of arithmetic suchdifferential geometry, illustration thought, ergodic conception and dynamical platforms. This e-book is an elaboration on a few principles of Gromov on hyperbolic areas and hyperbolic teams in relation with symbolic dynamics.

The theory of groups

Might be the 1st actually recognized publication dedicated basically to finite teams used to be Burnside's e-book. From the time of its moment version in 1911 till the looks of Hall's ebook, there have been few books of comparable stature. Hall's ebook remains to be thought of to be a vintage resource for basic effects at the illustration concept for finite teams, the Burnside challenge, extensions and cohomology of teams, $p$-groups and lots more and plenty extra.
