Casson's Invariant for Oriented Homology Three-Spheres: An by Selman Akbulut

By Selman Akbulut

Within the spring of 1985, A. Casson introduced an enticing invariant of homology 3-spheres through structures on illustration areas. This invariant generalizes the Rohlin invariant and offers brilliant corollaries in low-dimensional topology. within the fall of that very same yr, Selman Akbulut and John McCarthy held a seminar in this invariant. those notes grew out of that seminar. The authors have attempted to stay on the subject of Casson's unique define and continue via giving wanted information, together with an exposition of Newstead's effects. they've got frequently selected classical concrete ways over basic equipment. for instance, they didn't try to provide gauge thought reasons for the result of Newstead; in its place they his unique suggestions.

It uses Spring Web MVC in the web layer and also demonstrates the use of JMX. • ImageDb: This application demonstrates the use of binary large object (BLOB) handling, file upload with Spring Web MVC, and Velocity as a template technology. The sample applications are useful examples that demonstrate popular usage patterns of various features of the Spring Framework. txt file with a motivation for the sample application and a list of the features demonstrated in the sample. Summary In this chapter, you’ve learned about dependency injection, a straightforward mechanism to acquired dependent objects.

You can use both factory methods and factory objects. 23 24 CHAPTER 2 ■ THE CORE CONTAINER Factory Methods To demonstrate the benefits of factory methods, let’s look at an example. Let’s say we want to read a text file line by line. BufferedReader class. txt")))); Things start to become even more inconvenient if we need to create BufferedReader objects in multiple places in our application. txt")); By using a factory method, our code becomes more readable, and we’ve found a convenient way to hide the creation of a complex object.

At the time of this writing, the EJB specifications are all but dead and buried. The new EJB3 specifications have failed to convince application developers. EJB3 has a very limited dependency injection model and does little to bring consistency to your applications. EJB and the Spring Framework are often compared because they promise the same thing: an application deployment model with transparent enterprise service like transaction management, security, messaging, and remote access. The Spring Framework matches all the features of EJB3 and goes much further.
