By Dominic Widdows

From Pythagoras's harmonic series to Einstein's concept of relativity, geometric types of place, proximity, ratio, and the underlying homes of actual area have supplied us with robust principles and actual medical instruments. at the moment, comparable geometric types are being utilized to a different kind of space—the conceptual area of data and that means, the place the contributions of Pythagoras and Einstein are part of the panorama itself. the wealthy geometry of conceptual area may be glimpsed, for example, in web records: whereas the records themselves outline a constitution of visible layouts and point-to-point hyperlinks, se's create an extra constitution via matching key terms to close by records in a spatial association of content material. What the Geometry of Meaning presents is a much-needed exploration of computational recommendations to symbolize that means and of the conceptual areas on which those representations are founded.

This Seminar all started in Moscow in November 1943 and has endured with no interruption as much as the current. we're chuffed that with this vol­ ume, Birkhiiuser has all started to put up papers of talks from the Seminar. It was once, regrettably, tricky to prepare their e-book sooner than 1990. in view that 1990, lots of the talks have taken position at Rutgers collage in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Simplex geometry is a subject generalizing geometry of the triangle and tetrahedron. the suitable device for its research is matrix conception, yet functions often contain fixing large platforms of linear equations or eigenvalue difficulties, and geometry might help in visualizing the behaviour of the matter.
