L²-invariants: theory and applications to geometry and K-theory

In algebraic topology a few classical invariants - similar to Betti numbers and Reidemeister torsion - are outlined for compact areas and finite staff activities. they are often generalized utilizing von Neumann algebras and their lines, and utilized additionally to non-compact areas and limitless teams. those new L2-invariants include very fascinating and novel info and will be utilized to difficulties bobbing up in topology, K-Theory, differential geometry, non-commutative geometry and spectral conception.

When dealing with more than one perpendicular we must call those drawn from points on one side of the line positive and those from points on the other negative. It follows similarly that all points whose The sign line, coordinates make Ax + By+G Ax + By + C~ 0, positive lie on one side of the line and those whose coordinates make Ax+By+C negative lie on the other side.
