This publication includes refereed papers provided on the AMS-IMS-SIAM summer time study convention at the Penrose rework and Analytic Cohomology in illustration conception held in the summertime of 1992 at Mount Holyoke university. The convention introduced jointly a number of the most sensible specialists in illustration concept and differential geometry.

**Quaternionic and Clifford Calculus for Physicists and Engineers**

Quarternionic calculus covers a department of arithmetic which makes use of computational suggestions to aid clear up difficulties from a large choice of actual platforms that are mathematically modelled in three, four or extra dimensions. Examples of the applying components contain thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, geophysics and structural mechanics.

Burghelea and S. Haller the topology of non-simply connected manifolds to the complex geometry/analysis of the variety of complex representations of their fundamental group. Both concepts existed in literature prior to our work, cf. [1] and [14]. We have extended, generalized and Poincar´e dualized them because of our needs, cf.

If u ∈ M A(Γ) then u is a bounded continuous function and mu is a bounded operator on the space A(Γ). We say that u is a completely bounded multiplier if and only if the operator mu is completely bounded. The set M0 (A(Γ)) of completely bounded multipliers is equipped with the norm u M0 A(Γ) which we shall call the multiplier norm. = mu cb , 28 J. A. Niblo By analogy with Leptin’s result we have the following deﬁnition of weak amenability. 5. We say that a group Γ is weakly amenable iﬀ A(Γ) has an approximate identity that is bounded in the multiplier norm.
