**Number Theory 1: Fermat's Dream **

This can be the English translation of the unique eastern e-book. during this quantity, "Fermat's Dream", middle theories in smooth quantity idea are brought. advancements are given in elliptic curves, $p$-adic numbers, the $\zeta$-function, and the quantity fields. This paintings provides a sublime standpoint at the ask yourself of numbers.

**Initial-Boundary Value Problems and the Navier-Stokes Equations **

This ebook offers an advent to the gigantic topic of preliminary and initial-boundary worth difficulties for PDEs, with an emphasis on functions to parabolic and hyperbolic structures. The Navier-Stokes equations for compressible and incompressible flows are taken for instance to demonstrate the implications.

The formal analogy between (7) and (22) s t ill suggests that it has a particularly nioe normal structure in sorne sense. We can hope to find some more general type of normal bundle than O(n)-bundles, for whioh (rational) Pontrjagin olasses or L-classes are still defined and such that the inclusion of the nth symmetric product of a manifold in the . ( n+1 ) st always has a normal bundle . 1n the genera11sed sense. In fact, a definition recently has been given for such a generalised bundle for homology manifolds (Martin and Maunder [2~), These objects, called "homology cobordism bundles," are (roughly) defined as projections E~B for which the inverse image of a cell in B is H-cobordant to the product of the cell with the fibre.

We will give a second application of Theorem 1 in §15. But the theorem is interesting for its own sake as well as for its applications, since it illustrates the behaviour of the equivariant L-ola5s.
