A simplicial complex G defines the connection matrix L which is L(x,y)=1 if and only if x and y intersect. The dual matrix is K(x,y)=1 if and only if x and y do not intersect. It is the adjacency matrix of the dual connection graph.
The beautiful Alexander duality theorem for finite abstract simplicial complexes.
We compute the quadratic interaction cohomology in the simplest case.
The interaction cohomology of the dunce hat is computed. We then comment on the discrete Lusternik-Schnirelmann theorem.
This is an other blog entry about interaction cohomology [PDF], (now on the ArXiv), a draft which just got finished over spring break. The paper had been started more than 2 years ago and got delayed when the unimodularity of the connection Laplacian took over. There was an announcement [PDF] which is now included as an appendix. [Not to appear … ….
For a one-dimensional simplicial complex, the sign less Hodge operator can be written as L-g, where g is the inverse of L. This leads to a Laplace equation shows solutions are given by a two-sided random walk.
Here is the code to compute a basis of the cohomology groups of an arbitrary simplicial complex. It takes 6 lines in mathematica without any outside libraries. The input is a simplicial complex, the out put is the basis for $H^0,H^1,H^2 etc$. The length of the code compares in complexity with computations in basic planimetric computations in a triangle (Example … ….
We found a formula of the green function entries g(x,y). Where g is the inverse of the connection matrix of a finite abstract simplicial complex. The formula involves the Euler characteristic of the intersection of the stars of the simplices x and y, hence the name.
When replacing the circle group with the dyadic group of integers, the Riemann zeta function becomes an explicit entire function for which all roots are on the imaginary axes. This is the Dyadic Riemann Hypothesis.
The Wu characteristic of a simplicial complex is the eigenvalue of an
eigenvector to a matrix L J, where L is the connection Laplacian and J
a checkerboard matrix. The eigenvector has components whicih are
Wu intersection numbers.
