The purpose of this publication is to provide as exact an outline as is feasible of 1 of the main attractive and intricate examples in low-dimensional topology. this instance is a gateway to a brand new notion of upper dimensional algebra during which diagrams exchange algebraic expressions and relationships among diagrams characterize algebraic kinfolk. The reader may possibly learn the adjustments within the illustrations in a leisurely style; or with scrutiny, the reader turns into customary and boost a facility for those diagrammatic computations. The textual content describes the fundamental topological principles via metaphors which are skilled in lifestyle: shadows, the human shape, the intersections among partitions, and the creases in a blouse or a couple of trousers. Mathematically proficient reader will enjoy the casual creation of principles. This quantity also will entice scientifically literate people who have fun with mathematical good looks.

Readership: Researchers in arithmetic.

Example text

One way of doing so is to introduce folds via the introduction of lips. The affect to a movie and to the resulting surface is illustrated in Fig. 1.

As the fold and double point sets change, they sweep out surfaces in the timeelapsed sphere. The triple points sweep out arcs. After each illustration of a movie move, a corresponding illustration in patches of the intrinsic sphere is drawn. On the left side of the figures, the before and after views in patches of the ambient sphere are illustrated. On the right side, a set that is one dimension larger interpolates between the patches. For example, in the fold set, interpolating surfaces occur within a set of 2-spacial + 1temporal-dimensions.
