Focuses on an object that occurs in low-dimensional topology, particularly in the knot theory which is known as the Borromean Rings. Use of rings as a symbol in many scientific fields; Background information on rings; How the term `Borromean' is often introduced in textbooks; Discussion on the use of the Borromean Rings in Mathematics.

    We have synthesized new topological ring-shaped and figure-8 crystals of NbSe[sub3] grown from chemical vapor transportation. We confirm that the ring-NbSe[sub3] is a single-phase crystal from X-ray diffraction, and that a charge-density wave (CDW) transition takes place near 140 K by observing...

    Let R be a commutative ring and M be an R-module. A proper submodule N of M is said to be prime if rm ∈ N for r ∈ R and m ∈ M implies that either m ∈ N or r ∈ (N : M). In this paper, we investigate finite and infinite unions of submodules of R-module M.

    In this paper, we consider a topological prime quasi-radical μ( R), which is the intersection of closed prime ideals in a topological ring R. Examples are given that show that μ( R) is different from those topological analogs of the prime radical that have been studied earlier. The...

    Let X be a topological ring. In this paper, we consider the three classes (btb-bounded, tbtb-bounded, and tbb-bounded) of endomorphisms defined on X and denote these classes by Bbtb(X), Btbtb(X), and Btbb(X), respectively. We equip them with an appropriate topology and we find some sufficient...

  • Characterizations of regular hyperrings by prime and semi-prime hyperideals. Velrajan, M.; Asokkumar, A. // Journal of Advanced Research in Pure Mathematics;2012, Vol. 4 Issue 2, p88 

    In this paper, we give two characterizations of regular hyperrings. We prove that a commutative hyperring R with an identity is regular if and only if every hyperideal in R; maximal with respect to the property of not having a given element in R; is a prime hyperideal. The other characterization...
