    Homological Epimorphisms of Differential Graded Algebras

    Full text link
    Let R and S be differential graded algebras. In this paper we give a characterisation of when a differential graded R-S-bimodule M induces a full embedding of derived categories M\otimes - :D(S)--> D(R). In particular, this characterisation generalises the theory of Geigle and Lenzing's homological epimorphisms of rings. Furthermore, there is an application of the main result to Dwyer and Greenlees's Morita theory.Comment: 14 page

    Coherence of Associativity in Categories with Multiplication

    Get PDF
    The usual coherence theorem of MacLane for categories with multiplication assumes that a certain pentagonal diagram commutes in order to conclude that associativity isomorphisms are well defined in a certain practical sense. The practical aspects include creating associativity isomorphisms from a given one by tensoring with the identity on either the right or the left. We show, by reinspecting MacLane's original arguments, that if tensoring with the identity is restricted to one side, then the well definedness of constructed isomorphisms follows from naturality only, with no need of the commutativity of the pentagonal diagram. This observation was discovered by noting the resemblance of the usual coherence theorems with certain properties of a finitely presented group known as Thompson's group F. This paper is to be taken as an advertisement for this connection.Comment: 8 pages, to appear in Journal of Pure and Applied Algebr

    Self-duality of Selmer groups

    Full text link
    The first part of the paper gives a new proof of self-duality for Selmer groups: if A is an abelian variety over a number field K, and F/K is a Galois extension with Galois group G, then the Q_pG-representation naturally associated to the p-infinity Selmer group of A/F is self-dual. The second part describes a method for obtaining information about parities of Selmer ranks from the local Tamagawa numbers of A in intermediate extensions of F/K.Comment: 12 pages; to appear in Proc.

    Two polygraphic presentations of Petri nets

    Get PDF
    This document gives an algebraic and two polygraphic translations of Petri nets, all three providing an easier way to describe reductions and to identify some of them. The first one sees places as generators of a commutative monoid and transitions as rewriting rules on it: this setting is totally equivalent to Petri nets, but lacks any graphical intuition. The second one considers places as 1-dimensional cells and transitions as 2-dimensional ones: this translation recovers a graphical meaning but raises many difficulties since it uses explicit permutations. Finally, the third translation sees places as degenerated 2-dimensional cells and transitions as 3-dimensional ones: this is a setting equivalent to Petri nets, equipped with a graphical interpretation.Comment: 28 pages, 24 figure

    On the weak order of Coxeter groups

    Full text link
    This paper provides some evidence for conjectural relations between extensions of (right) weak order on Coxeter groups, closure operators on root systems, and Bruhat order. The conjecture focused upon here refines an earlier question as to whether the set of initial sections of reflection orders, ordered by inclusion, forms a complete lattice. Meet and join in weak order are described in terms of a suitable closure operator. Galois connections are defined from the power set of W to itself, under which maximal subgroups of certain groupoids correspond to certain complete meet subsemilattices of weak order. An analogue of weak order for standard parabolic subsets of any rank of the root system is defined, reducing to the usual weak order in rank zero, and having some analogous properties in rank one (and conjecturally in general).Comment: 37 pages, submitte

    Calculus III: Taylor Series

    Full text link
    We study functors from spaces to spaces or spectra that preserve weak homotopy equivalences. For each such functor we construct a universal n-excisive approximation, which may be thought of as its n-excisive part. Homogeneous functors, meaning n-excisive functors with trivial (n-1)-excisive part, can be classified: they correspond to symmetric functors of n variables that are reduced and 1-excisive in each variable. We discuss some important examples, including the identity functor and Waldhausen's algebraic K-theory.Comment: Published by Geometry and Topology at http://www.maths.warwick.ac.uk/gt/GTVol7/paper19.abs.htm
