Some articles on formal group law, formal group laws, group laws:

Elliptic Cohomology - Definitions and Constructions
... These theories possess a complex orientation, which gives a formal group law ... A particularly rich source for formal group laws are elliptic curves ... elliptic if it is even periodic and its formal group law is isomorphic to a formal group law of an elliptic curve E over R ...
Lubin–Tate Formal Group Laws
... The Lubin–Tate formal group law is the unique (1-dimensional) formal group law F such that e(x) = px + xp is an endomorphism of F, in other words More generally we can allow e ... All the group laws for different choices of e satisfying these conditions are strictly isomorphic ... Zp there is a unique endomorphism f of the Lubin–Tate formal group law such that f(x) = ax + higher-degree terms ...

Famous quotes containing the words law, formal and/or group:

    The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of laws, where there is no law, there is no freedom.
    John Locke (1632–1704)

    The manifestation of poetry in external life is formal perfection. True sentiment grows within, and art must represent internal phenomena externally.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    He hung out of the window a long while looking up and down the street. The world’s second metropolis. In the brick houses and the dingy lamplight and the voices of a group of boys kidding and quarreling on the steps of a house opposite, in the regular firm tread of a policeman, he felt a marching like soldiers, like a sidewheeler going up the Hudson under the Palisades, like an election parade, through long streets towards something tall white full of colonnades and stately. Metropolis.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
