From the reports of the 1st printing of this booklet, released as quantity fifty eight of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences:
"... This booklet can be very invaluable as a reference and advisor to researchers and graduate scholars in algebra and and topology." Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Ungarn, 1994 "... The booklet below overview contains monographs on geometric points of workforce idea: Combinatorial crew concept and basic teams" via D.J.Collins and H.Zieschang ...: "Some difficulties of team thought with regards to geometry" by means of R.I.Grigorchuk and P.F.Kurchanov. ... jointly, those articles shape a wide-ranging survey of combinatorial workforce conception, with emphasis a great deal at the geometric roots of the topic. it will be an invaluable reference paintings for the specialist, in addition to supplying an summary of the topic for the outsider or amateur. many various issues are defined and explored, with the most effects awarded yet now not proved. this permits the reader to get the flavor of those themes with out changing into slowed down intimately. either articles supply accomplished bibliographies, in order that it really is attainable to take advantage of this e-book because the place to begin for a extra specified learn of a specific subject of curiosity. ... In precis, a truly fascinating ebook! Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1996 "... In either essays the authors provide transparent and complete definitions, examples and statements (but now not proofs) of theorems, in order that the ebook could be understood via a reader with a minimum history in staff conception or geometry. one of these reader, wanting to determine what's identified during this region, will locate this an entire and available shop of information." modern Physics, 1994 "...This survey (Part II) offers for the 1st time that difficulties in monograph shape and incidentally bargains a unifying remedy of many of the methods to their suggestions, so far as they're recognized, including tricks to open difficulties. A titbit for each reader!" Monatshefte für Mathematik, 1995

This article is designed to unravel the clash among the abstractions of linear algebra and the desires and skills of the scholars who can have dealt basically in short with the theoretical features of prior arithmetic classes. the writer acknowledges that many scholars will first and foremost believe uncomfortable, or no less than unusual, with the theoretical nature inherent in lots of of the subjects in linear algebra.

The target of this e-book is to provide a unified mathematical remedy of numerous difficulties in arithmetic, physics, machine technological know-how, and engineer­ ing utilizing geometric algebra. Geometric algebra used to be invented through William Kingdon Clifford in 1878 as a unification and generalization of the works of Grassmann and Hamilton, which got here greater than 1 / 4 of a century sooner than.

4. The existence of such a representation of 9 is easy. Any non-trivial 9 E G can be written as a product 9 = Zl ... Zm where the factors Zi come alternately from G I and G2 . Moreover except when 9 E A, one can assume that no Zi lies in A. Then one writes Zm = amc m with am E A and Cm in the appropriate transversal and so on. 1. Let W be the set of all finite sequences (a, CI,"" cn) , n ;::: 0 where aCI ... Cn satisfies the conditions in the statement of the theorem. To define an action of G on W it suffices, by the universal property, to define actions of G I and G 2 which agree on the common subgroup A.

Let F = ( X 1 - ) be a free group. A word W over X is reduced if it contains no peak Xc X-c, X E X, c = ±l. Clearly every element of F can be represented by a reduced word. The first principal result in the theory of free groups is the solution to the word problem. 1. Theorem. Let F = ( X sented by a unique reduced word. I - ). Then each element of F is repre- Proof. Let Wo be the set of all reduced words over X. 3 it suffices to define an action for each X E X. Given W == X~l ... W XX~l .. l = U and hence exactly one reduced word represents g.
