By Sherman Stein, Sandor Szabó

Usually questions on tiling area or a polygon bring about different questions. for example, tiling by way of cubes increases questions about finite abelian teams. Tiling by means of triangles of equivalent components quickly includes Sperner's lemma from topology and valuations from algebra. the 1st six chapters of Algebra and Tiling shape a self-contained remedy of those subject matters, starting with Minkowski's conjecture approximately lattice tiling of Euclidean house by way of unit cubes, and concluding with Laczkowicz's fresh paintings on tiling via comparable triangles. The concluding bankruptcy offers a simplified model of Rédei's theorem on finite abelian teams: if this sort of crew is factored as an instantaneous made of subsets, each one containing the id aspect, and every of best order, than a minimum of certainly one of them is a subgroup. Algebra and Tiling is out there to undergraduate arithmetic majors, as many of the instruments essential to learn the publication are present in common higher department algebra classes, yet lecturers, researchers mathematicians will locate the booklet both beautiful.

Example text

Thus (X, {X k }) is a CW complex. The converse is clear from the previous propositions. 15. 14. Then (X, {X n }) is a finite CW complex. In particular, X is compact. 16. Let x ∈ S n−1 . Let e1 = {x} and e2 = S n−1 − {x}. This gives S n−1 the structure of a CW complex with one 0-cell e1 and one (n − 1)-cell ◦ e2 . Now consider B n ⊃ S n−1 . Let e3 = B n − S n−1 . This makes B n into a CW complex with the 0-cell e1 , the (n − 1)-cell e2 and an n-cell e3 . Note that all this makes sense when n = 1.

Write q : en → C(¯ g (en )) for the restriction of g¯. If m ≤ n, the next step can be omitted, so suppose m > n. Since • • • • q(e n ) ⊂ Y n−1 , q −1 (d − d) ⊂ en − e n . 2, there is a homotopy ◦ • g (en )) − d, and after finitely many such of q, rel e n , to a map of en into C(¯ •n homotopies, rel e , we will obtain a map of en into Y n . ◦ ◦ If q(en ) ∩ d = ∅, there is nothing to do. Otherwise, let y ∈ q(en ) ∩ d. ◦ ◦ q −1 (y) is a compact set lying in e n . Let D be a neighborhood of y in d which is homeomorphic to a closed ball, and let U = q −1 (int D).

When n > 0 the boundary operator n ∂ : Sn (X; R) → Sn−1 (X; R) is defined by ∂(σ) = (−1)i (σ ◦ Fi ); when i=0 n ≤ 0, ∂ = 0. The graded R-module {Sn (X; R)} is abbreviated to S∗ (X; R). One shows that ∂ ◦ ∂ = 0, so (S∗ (X; R), ∂) is a chain complex over R called the singular chain complex of X. Its singular homology modules are denoted 3 by H∗∆ (X; R). The ring R is the ring of coefficients. A map f : X → Y induces a chain map S∗ (f ) := {f# : S∗ (X; R) → S∗ (Y ; R)} defined by f# (σ) = f ◦ σ. We have4 (g ◦ f )# = g# ◦ f# , and id# = id.
