This quantity of the *Encyclopaedia* includes contributions on heavily comparable matters: the speculation of linear algebraic teams and invariant conception. the 1st half is written by way of T.A. Springer, a well known specialist within the first pointed out box. He provides a finished survey, which incorporates various sketched proofs and he discusses the actual positive aspects of algebraic teams over exact fields (finite, neighborhood, and global). The authors of half , E.B. Vinberg and V.L. Popov, are one of the so much energetic researchers in invariant thought. The final twenty years were a interval of lively improvement during this box because of the effect of contemporary equipment from algebraic geometry. The booklet may be very beneficial as a reference and study consultant to graduate scholars and researchers in arithmetic and theoretical physics.

**Elementary Euclidean geometry. An introduction**

This booklet, first released in 2004, is a real advent to the geometry of strains and conics within the Euclidean aircraft. traces and circles give you the start line, with the classical invariants of basic conics brought at an early level, yielding a extensive subdivision into varieties, a prelude to the congruence category.

The subgroup p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) ⊂ π1 (X, x0 ) is called the covering p group of T −→ X . Let x′0 = x0 , p(x′0 ) = p(x0 ) = x0 . Consider a path α : I −→ T such that α(0) = x0 , α(1) = x′0 . Then the projection α = p(α) is a loop in X , see Figure to the left. Clearly α# : p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) −→ p∗ (π1 (T, x′0 )) given by α# (g) = αgα−1 is an isomorphism. Consider the coset π1 (X, x0 )/p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) (the subgroup p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) ⊂ π1 (X, x0 ) is not normal subgroup in general). 1. There is one-to-one correspondence p−1 (x0 ) ←→ π1 (X, x0 )/p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )).

We note that in particular π1 (T 2 ) ∼ = Z ⊕ Z, which is obvious from the product formula π1 (X × Y ) ∼ = π1 (X) × π1 (Y ). Recall that a non-oriented two-dimensional manifold of genus g is heomeomorphic either to Mg2 (1), a connective sum of a projective plane RP2 and g tori T 2 # · · · #T 2 , or to Mg2 (2), a connective sum of the Klein bottle Kl2 and g tori T 2 # · · · #T 2 . 7. 1. The group π1 (Mg2 (1)) is isomorphic to a group on generators c1 , . . , c2g+1 wit a single relation c21 · · · c22g+1 = 1.

The properties (a), (b), (e) follow from the definition. 10. 3. Let ǫi ∈ H σi be a vector which has σi -coordinate equal to 1, and all others are zeros. Thus (ǫ1 , . . , ǫk ) ∈ E(σ). For each k -frame (v1 , . . , vk ) ∈ E(σ) consider the transformation: (13) T = Tǫk ,vk ◦ Tǫk−1 ,vk−1 ◦ · · · · · · ◦ Tǫ1 ,v1 : Rn −→ Rn σi First we notice that vi = −ǫi since vi ∈ H . Thus the transformations Tǫi ,vi are well-defined. 11. Prove that the transformation T takes the k -frame (ǫ1 , . . , ǫk ) to the frame (v1 , .
