The examine effects released during this booklet diversity from natural mathematical concept (semigroup concept, discrete arithmetic, and so on. ) to theoretical desktop technology, specifically formal languages and automata. The papers deal with matters within the algebraic and combinatorial theories of semigroups, phrases and languages, the constitution concept of automata, the category conception of formal languages and codes, and purposes of those theories to numerous parts, like quantum and molecular computing, coding idea, and cryptography.

Conceptual mathematics : a first introduction to categories

This is often an creation to brooding about straight forward arithmetic from a categorial standpoint. The objective is to discover the results of a brand new and basic perception concerning the nature of arithmetic. Foreword; notice to the reader; Preview; half I. the class of units: 1. units, maps, composition; half II.

A planar graph may be mapped on a plane so that any desired regioll is the outside region. We map the graph on a sphere, and rotate it so that the north pole lie! inside the given region. By stereographic projection, the graph is mappec onto the plane so that the given region is the outside region. We return now to the work in hand. 41 356 HASSLER WHITNEY THEOREM [April 27. If the components of a graph G are planar, G is planar. Suppose the graphs Gi and G2 are planar, and G' is formed by letting the vertices ai and a2 of Gi and G2 coalesce.

Map Gi on a sphere, and map G2 on a plane so that one of the regions adjacent to the vertex a2 is the outside region. Shrink the portion of the plane containing G2 so it will fit into one of the regions of Gi adjacent to ai. * The theorem follows as a repeated application of this process. THEOREM 28. Let G and G' be dual graphs, and let a(ab), a'(a'b') be two corresponding arcs. Form Gdrom G by dropping out the arc a(ab), and form G{ from G' by dropping out the arc a'(a'b'), and letting the vertices a' and b' coalesce if they are not already the same vertex.

Xl' x~, ••• , Xn). But this is a formula of the type previously dealt with, except for the variable propositions p, q, ... , which are easily eliminated by considering the different cases of their truth and falsity, the formula being consistent jf it is cOl1sist-ent in one snch casco Reprinted from Proc. London Math. Soc. 30 (1930),264-286 24 NON-SEPARABLE AND PLANAR GRAPHS* BY HASSLER WHITNEY Introduction. In this paper the structure of graphs is studied by purely combinatorial methods. The concepts of rank and nullity are fundamental.
