This is a starting place for mathematics topology - a brand new department of arithmetic that is centred upon the analogy among knot idea and quantity idea. beginning with an informative advent to its origins, specifically Gauss, this article offers a history on knots, 3 manifolds and quantity fields. universal elements of either knot thought and quantity thought, for example knots in 3 manifolds as opposed to primes in a bunch box, are in comparison in the course of the e-book. those comparisons commence at an ordinary point, slowly increase to complicated theories in later chapters. Definitions are conscientiously formulated and proofs are mostly self-contained. while invaluable, heritage details is supplied and thought is followed with a couple of priceless examples and illustrations, making this an invaluable textual content for either undergraduates and graduates within the box of knot conception, quantity concept and geometry.

Let kS = limi ki be the composite field of all finite Galois extensions ki of − → k in which are unramified outside S ∪ Sk∞ . The field kS is called the maximal Galois extension of k unramified outside S ∪ Sk∞ . 23 and hence π1 Spec(Ok ) \ S, x = Gal(kS /k) = lim Gal(ki /k). ← − i We denote this pro-finite group by GS (k). In the case k = Q, we shall simply write GS . For a prime number l, let kS (l) be the maximal l-extension of k unramified outside S ∪ Sk∞ . We then have GS (k)(l) = Gal(kS (l)/k).

U) is bijective for any covering h : Y → X (x = h( ˜ ⎪ ⎩ ˜ ˜ x)). 9 The universal covering of S 1 is given by h˜ : R → S 1 ; ˜ ) := cos(2πθ), sin(2πθ) . h(θ Let l be a loop starting from a base point x and going once around S 1 counterclockwise. Define the covering transformation σ ∈ Gal(R/S 1 ) by σ (θ) := θ + 1. Then the correspondence σ n → [l n ] (n ∈ Z) gives an isomorphism Gal(R/S 1 ) π1 (S 1 , x). Any subgroup (= {1}) of π1 (X, x) = [l] is given by [l n ] for some n ∈ N and the corresponding covering is given by hn : R/nZ → S 1 ; hn (θ mod nZ) := cos(2πθ), sin(2πθ) .

Fig. 13 Let Y0 , . . , Yn−1 be copies of Y and let Xn be the space obtained from the + disjoint union of all Yi ’s by identifying 0+ with 1− , . . , and n−1 with 0− (Fig. 14). Fig. 14 Define hn : Xn → XK as follows: If y ∈ Yi \ ( i+ ∪ i− ), define hn (y) to be the corresponding point of Y via Yi = Y . If y ∈ i+ ∪ i− , define hn (y) to be the corresponding point of K via i+ , i− ⊂ K . By the construction, hn : Xn → XK is an n-fold cyclic covering. The generating covering transformation τ ∈ Gal(Xn /XK ) is then given by the shift sending Yi to Yi+1 (i ∈ Z/nZ).
