The Structure of Compact Groups : A primer for students - A handbook for the expert

- Hofmann, Karl, Morris, Sidney

**Authors:**Hofmann, Karl , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2006**Type:**Text , Book**Full Text:**false**Description:**Dealing with the subject matter of compact groups that is frequently cited in fields like algebra, topology, functional analysis, and theoretical physics, this book has been conceived with the dual purpose of providing a text book for upper level graduate courses or seminars, and of serving as a source book for research specialists who need to apply the structure and representation theory of compact groups. The first edition of 1998 was well received by reviewers and has been frequently quoted in the areas of instruction and research. For the present new edition, the text has been improved in various sections. New material has been added in order to reflect ongoing research.**Description:**2003002192

Sophus Lie's third fundamental theorem and the adjoint functor theorem

- Hofmann, Karl, Morris, Sidney

**Authors:**Hofmann, Karl , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2005**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Journal of Group Theory Vol. 8, no. 1 (2005), p. 115-133**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**The essential attributes of a Lie group G are the associated Lie algebra LðGÞ and the exponential function exp : LðGÞ ! G. The prescription L operates not only on Lie groups but also on morphisms between them: it is a functor. Many features of Lie theory are shared by classes of topological groups which are much larger than that of Lie groups; these classes include the classes of compact groups, locally compact groups, and pro-Lie groups, that is, complete topological groups having arbitrarily small normal subgroups N such that G=N is a (finitedimensional) Lie group. Considering the functor L it is therefore appropriate to contemplate more general classes of topological groups. Certain functorial properties of the assignment of a Lie algebra to a topological group (where possible) will be essential. What is new here is that we will introduce a functorial assignment from Lie algebras to groups and investigate to what extent it is inverse to the Lie algebra functor L. While the Lie algebra functor is well known and is cited regularly, the existence of a Lie group functor available to be cited and applied appears less well known. Sophus Lie’s Third Fundamental Theorem says that for each finite-dimensional real Lie algebra there is a Lie group whose Lie algebra is (isomorphic to) the given one; but even in classical circumstances it is not commonly known that this happens in a functorial fashion and what the precise relationship between the Lie algebra functor and the Lie group functor is.**Description:**C1**Description:**2003001415

Projective limits of finite-dimensional Lie groups

- Hofmann, Karl, Morris, Sidney

**Authors:**Hofmann, Karl , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2003**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society Vol. 87, no. 3 (Nov 2003), p. 647-676**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**For a topological group G we define N to be the set of all normal subgroups modulo which G is a finite-dimensional Lie group. Call G a pro-Lie group if, firstly, G is complete, secondly, N is a filter basis, and thirdly, every identity neighborhood of G contains some member of N. It is easy to see that every pro-Lie group G is a projective limit of the projective system of all quotients of G modulo subgroups from N. The converse implication emerges as a difficult proposition, but it is shown here that any projective limit of finite-dimensional Lie groups is a pro-Lie group. It is also shown that a closed subgroup of a pro-Lie group is a pro-Lie group, and that for any closed normal subgroup N of a pro-Lie group G, for any one parameter subgroup Y : R G/N there is a one parameter subgroup X : R G such that X(t) N = Y(t) for any real number t. The category of all pro-Lie groups and continuous group homomorphisms between them is closed under the formation of all limits in the category of topological groups and the Lie algebra functor on the category of pro-Lie groups preserves all limits and quotients.**Description:**C1**Description:**2003000376

Hilbert 13: Are there are any genuine continuous multivariate real-valued functions?

**Authors:**Morris, Sidney**Date:**2021**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society Vol. 58, no. 1 (2021), p. 107-118**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**This article begins with a provocative question: Are there any genuine continuous multivariate real-valued functions? This may seem to be a silly question, but it is in essence what David Hilbert asked as one of the 23 problems he posed at the second International Congress of Mathematicians, held in Paris in 1900. These problems guided a large portion of the research in mathematics of the 20th century. Hilbert’s 13th problem conjectured that there exists a continuous function (Formula presented), where (Formula presented), which cannot be expressed in terms of composition and addition of continuous functions from ℝ2 → ℝ, that is, as composition and addition of continuous real-valued functions of two variables. It took over 50 years to prove that Hilbert’s conjecture is false. This article discusses the solution. © 2021. American Mathematical Society.

Predicting trading signals of stock market indices using neural networks

Most commonly used classification techniques are not suitable to predict trading signals when the distribution of the actual trading signals, among theses three classes, is imbalanced. In this paper, new algorithms were developed based on the structure of feedforward neural networks and a modified Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) error function. An adjustment relating to the contribution from the historical data used for training the networks, and the penalization of incorrectly classified trading signals were accounted for when modifying the OLS function. A global optimization algorithm was employed to train these networks. The algorithms developed in this study were employed to predict the trading signals of day (t+1) of the Australian All Ordinary Index. The algorithms with the modified error functions introduced by this study produced better predictions. Â© 2008 Springer Berlin Heidelberg.

A second, expanded and illustrated version was published in German in the Mitteilungen der Deutschen Mathematikervereinigung early in 2005. Because of the very positive feedback, the authors decided it would be useful to publish a version in English in a computing journal. The purpose of the essay is to provide advice and information to authors of articles about publishing in scholarly journals from an editor's perspective. Of particular importance are remarks about etiquette.**Description:**C1

An open mapping theorem for pro-Lie groups

It is proved that a surjective continuous group homomorphism between connected pro-Lie groups is open. In fact this remains true for almost connected pro-Lie groups where a topological group is called almost connected if the factor group modulo the identity component is compact. As consequences we get a Closed Graph Theorem and the validity of the Second Isomorphism Theorem for pro-Lie groups in the almost connected context. © 2007 Australian Mathematical Society.**Description:**C1**Description:**2003005492
