# Topology, Ergodic Theory, Real Algebraic Geometry: Rokhlin’s Memorial

Share this page *Edited by *
*V. Turaev; A. Vershik*

This book is dedicated to the memory of the outstanding Russian mathematician, V. A. Rokhlin (1919–1984). It is a collection of research papers written by his former students and followers, who are now experts in their fields. The topics in this volume include topology (the Morse-Novikov theory, spin bordisms in dimension 6, and skein modules of links), real algebraic geometry (real algebraic curves, plane algebraic surfaces, algebraic links, and complex orientations), dynamics (ergodicity, amenability, and random bundle transformations), geometry of Riemannian manifolds, theory of Teichmüller spaces, measure theory, etc. The book also includes a biography of Rokhlin by Vershik and two articles of historical interest.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in topology, geometry, dynamics and measure theory.
