  1. Lattice Theory and Geometry of Numbers (The Geometry Junkyard) - David Eppstein, Theory Group, ICS, UC Irvine
    An extensive annotated list of links to material on lattices. A lattice is an infinite arrangement of points spaced with sufficient regularity that one can shift any point onto any other point by some symmetry of the arrangement. More formally, a lattice can be defined as a discrete subgroup of a finite-dimensional vector space (the subgroup is often required not to lie within any subspace of the vector space, which can be expressed formally by saying that the quotient of the space by the lattice is compact). more>>

  1. Application of Rayleigh's Short-Cut Method to Polya's Recurrence Problem [PDF] - Peter Doyle
    Doyle's Ph.D. thesis at Dartmouth College, June 1982. The goals of the presentation are to explain why Polya's theorem is true and to develop techniques for applying Rayleigh's method. The main results make sense of the notion that if two graphs look ...more>>
