**Fundamental theorem** — In mathematics, there are a number of fundamental theorems for different fields. The names are mostly traditional; so that for example the fundamental theorem of arithmetic is basic to what would now be called number theory. Theorems may be… … Wikipedia

**Seifert–van Kampen theorem** — In mathematics, the Seifert–van Kampen theorem of algebraic topology, sometimes just called van Kampen s theorem, expresses the structure of the fundamental group of a topological space X, in terms of the fundamental groups of two open, path… … Wikipedia

**Atiyah–Singer index theorem** — In the mathematics of manifolds and differential operators, the Atiyah–Singer index theorem states that for an elliptic differential operator on a compact manifold, the analytical index (closely related to the dimension of the space of solutions) … Wikipedia

**Whitehead theorem** — In homotopy theory (a branch of mathematics), the Whitehead theorem states that if a continuous mapping f between topological spaces X and Y induces isomorphisms on all homotopy groups, then f is a homotopy equivalence provided X and Y are… … Wikipedia

**Stone's representation theorem for Boolean algebras** — In mathematics, Stone s representation theorem for Boolean algebras states that every Boolean algebra is isomorphic to a field of sets. The theorem is fundamental to the deeper understanding of Boolean algebra that emerged in the first half of… … Wikipedia

**Continuous functions on a compact Hausdorff space** — In mathematical analysis, and especially functional analysis, a fundamental role is played by the space of continuous functions on a compact Hausdorff space with values in the real or complex numbers. This space, denoted by C(X), is a vector… … Wikipedia

**Kernel (algebra)** — In the various branches of mathematics that fall under the heading of abstract algebra, the kernel of a homomorphism measures the degree to which the homomorphism fails to be injective. An important special case is the kernel of a matrix, also… … Wikipedia

**Glossary of group theory** — A group ( G , •) is a set G closed under a binary operation • satisfying the following 3 axioms:* Associativity : For all a , b and c in G , ( a • b ) • c = a • ( b • c ). * Identity element : There exists an e ∈ G such that for all a in G , e •… … Wikipedia

**Quotient ring** — In mathematics a quotient ring, also known as factor ring or residue class ring, is a construction in ring theory, quite similar to the factor groups of group theory and the quotient spaces of linear algebra. One starts with a ring R and a two… … Wikipedia
