Potential Wadge Classes

Let $\bf\Gamma$ be a Borel class, or a Wadge class of Borel sets, and $2\!\leq\! d\!\leq\!\omega$ be a cardinal. A Borel subset $B$ of ${\mathbb R}^d$ is potentially in $\bf\Gamma$ if there is a finer Polish topology on $\mathbb R$ such that $B$ is in $\bf\Gamma$ when ${\mathbb R}^d$ is equipped with the new product topology. The author provides a way to recognize the sets potentially in $\bf\Gamma$ and applies this to the classes of...

A Study of Singularities on Rational Curves Via Syzygies

Consider a rational projective curve C of degree d over an algebraically closed field kk. There are n homogeneous forms g1,...,gn of degree d in B=kk[x,y] which parameterise C in a birational, base point free, manner. The authors study the singularities of C by studying a Hilbert-Burch matrix f for the row vector [g1,...,gn]. In the ""General Lemma"" the authors use the generalised row ideals of f to identify the singular points on C...

Roads Were Not Built for Cars

In Roads Were Not Built for Cars, Carlton Reid reveals the pivotal—and largely unrecognized—role that bicyclists played in the development of modern roadways. Reid introduces readers to cycling personalities, such as Henry Ford, and the cycling advocacy groups that influenced early road improvements, literally paving the way for the motor car. When the bicycle morphed from the vehicle of rich transport progressives in the 1890s to th...
