    • Jacobi Structures And Differential Forms On Contact Quotients 

      Mahmood, Fatima (2012-08-20)
      In the first part of this thesis, we generalize the notion of a Jacobi bracket on the algebra of smooth functions on a manifold to the notion of a Jacobi bracket on an abstract commutative algebra. We also prove certain ...
    • Kauffman Bracket Skein Modules And The Quantum Torus 

      Samuelson, Peter (2012-08-20)
      If M is a 3-manifold, the Kauffman bracket skein module is a vector space Kq (M ) functorially associated to M that depends on a parameter q ∈ C* . If F is a surface, then Kq (F x [0, 1]) is an algebra, and Kq (M ) is a ...
