Dynamics in one complex variable
This volume studies the dynamics of iterated holomorphic mappings from a Riemann surface to itself, concentrating on the classical case of rational maps of the Riemann sphere. This subject is largeExpand

Introduction to algebraic K-theory
Algebraic K-theory describes a branch of algebra that centers about two functors. K0 and K1, which assign to each associative ring ? an abelian group K0? or K1? respectively. Professor Milnor setsExpand

On the concept of attractor
This note proposes a definition for the concept of “attractor,” based on the probable asymptotic behavior of orbits. The definition is sufficiently broad so that every smooth compact dynamical systemExpand

On the Betti numbers of real varieties
PROOF. Approximate fi, * *, fm by real polynomials F1, * , Fm of the same degrees whose coefficients are algebraically independent. Now consider the variety Vc in the complex Cartesian spaceExpand

A note on curvature and fundamental group
Define the growth function γ associated with a finitely generated group and a specified choice of generators {gl7 -, gp} for the group as follows (compare [9]). For each positive integer s let γ(s)Expand
