During the last 20-30 years, knot conception has rekindled its old ties with biology, chemistry, and physics as a method of constructing extra subtle descriptions of the entanglements and homes of ordinary phenomena--from strings to natural compounds to DNA. This quantity is predicated at the 2008 AMS brief path, purposes of Knot idea. the purpose of the quick direction and this quantity, whereas no longer overlaying all elements of utilized knot conception, is to supply the reader with a mathematical appetizer, on the way to stimulate the mathematical urge for food for additional learn of this interesting box. No past wisdom of topology, biology, chemistry, or physics is believed. specifically, the 1st 3 chapters of this quantity introduce the reader to knot concept (by Colin Adams), topological chirality and molecular symmetry (by Erica Flapan), and DNA topology (by Dorothy Buck). the second one 1/2 this quantity is concentrated on 3 specific purposes of knot idea. Louis Kauffman discusses functions of knot idea to physics, Nadrian Seeman discusses how topology is utilized in DNA nanotechnology, and Jonathan Simon discusses the statistical and full of life houses of knots and their relation to molecular biology.

**Survey of matrix theory and matrix inequalities**

Concise, masterly survey of a considerable a part of glossy matrix thought introduces extensive diversity of rules related to either matrix idea and matrix inequalities. additionally, convexity and matrices, localization of attribute roots, proofs of classical theorems and ends up in modern study literature, extra.

This quantity offers surveys, written via specialists within the box, on quite a few classical and smooth elements of Hilbert geometry. They think numerous issues of view: Finsler geometry, calculus of adaptations, projective geometry, dynamical structures, and others. a few fruitful family members among Hilbert geometry and different topics in arithmetic are emphasised, together with Teichmüller areas, convexity conception, Perron-Frobenius concept, illustration thought, partial differential equations, coarse geometry, ergodic concept, algebraic teams, Coxeter teams, geometric team conception, Lie teams and discrete workforce activities.
