Introduction to Braided Geometry and q-Minkowski Space
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 60

Description:
We present a systematic introduction to the geometry of linear braided spaces. These are versions of Rn in which the coordinates xi have braid-statistics described by an R-matrix. From this starting point we survey the author's braided-approach to q-deformation.

Book cover: First Steps Towards a Symplectic DynamicsFirst Steps Towards a Symplectic Dynamics
by - arXiv
Both dynamical systems and symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems and symplectic ideas come together.
