Download Geometric Theory of Foliations by César Camacho PDF

By César Camacho

Intuitively, a foliation corresponds to a decomposition of a manifold right into a union of attached, disjoint submanifolds of an identical measurement, referred to as leaves, which pile up in the neighborhood like pages of a booklet. the idea of foliations, because it is understood, started with the paintings of C. Ehresmann and G. Reeb, within the 1940's; even if, as Reeb has himself saw, already within the final century P. Painleve observed the need of making a geometrical idea (of foliations) for you to larger comprehend the issues within the examine of suggestions of holomorphic differential equations within the advanced box. the advance of the idea of foliations used to be notwithstanding provoked through the next query concerning the topology of manifolds proposed through H. Hopf within the three 1930's: "Does there exist at the Euclidean sphere S a very integrable vector box, that's, a box X such that X· curl X • 0?" by way of Frobenius' theorem, this query is corresponding to the next: "Does there exist at the three sphere S a two-dimensional foliation?" this question used to be replied affirmatively via Reeb in his thesis, the place he three offers an instance of a foliation of S with the subsequent features: There exists one compact leaf homeomorphic to the two-dimensional torus, whereas the opposite leaves are homeomorphic to two-dimensional planes which accu­ mulate asymptotically at the compact leaf. additional, the foliation is C"".

Download Lecture Notes on Mean Curvature Flow, Barriers and Singular by Giovanni Bellettini PDF

By Giovanni Bellettini

The objective of the ebook is to review a few points of geometric evolutions, resembling suggest curvature circulation and anisotropic suggest curvature move of hypersurfaces. We research the starting place of such flows and their geometric and variational nature. one of the most vital elements of suggest curvature stream are defined, resembling the comparability precept and its use within the definition of appropriate vulnerable recommendations. The anisotropic evolutions, that are regarded as a generalization of suggest curvature stream, are studied from the view aspect of Finsler geometry. touching on singular perturbations, we speak about the convergence of the Allen–Cahn (or Ginsburg–Landau) kind equations to (possibly anisotropic) suggest curvature circulate prior to the onset of singularities within the restrict challenge. We examine such varieties of asymptotic difficulties additionally within the static case, displaying convergence to prescribed curvature-type problems.

Download Quasicrystals and Geometry by Marjorie Senechal PDF

By Marjorie Senechal

Quasicrystals and Geometry brings jointly for the 1st time the numerous strands of latest study in quasicrystal geometry and weaves them right into a coherent complete. the writer describes the ancient and clinical context of this paintings, and thoroughly explains what has been proved and what's conjectured. This, including a bibliography of over 250 references, offers an outstanding history for extra examine. the invention in 1984 of crystals with 'forbidden' symmetry posed attention-grabbing and difficult difficulties in lots of fields of arithmetic, in addition to within the strong country sciences. more and more, mathematicians and physicists have gotten intrigued by means of the quasicrystal phenomenon, and the end result has been an exponential development within the literature at the geometry of diffraction styles, the behaviour of the Fibonacci and different nonperiodic sequences, and the interesting houses of the Penrose tilings and their many relations.

Download Isotrope Geometrie des Raumes by Hans Sachs PDF

By Hans Sachs

Der allgemeine Begriff der m-dimensionalen isotropen Mannigfaltigkeit Vm eines kom plexen euklidischen Rn wurde von J. LENSE gepragt und fiihrte zu einer Reihe aufier ordentlich interessanter Untersuchungen (vgl. [92J - [104]). Spater hat M. PINL (vgl. [138J - [160]) diese Thematik unter Aspekten der Riemannschen Geometrie konsequent weiterentwickelt. 1st x = x( Ul, U2, . ., u ) eine m-dimensionale Riemannsche Mannig m faltigkeit Vm, die in einem komplexen eukHdischen Rn(Xl;.. ., xn) eingebettet ist und bezeichnet 8x (0. 1) 8u{3 ihren Mafitensor, so heifit Vm isotrop vom Rang r, wenn Rang (gcx{3) = r m gerne Vm als (m-r)-fach isotrop bezeich web. Speziell fiir r = zero, d. h. g"'{3 == zero liegen sogenannnte vollisotrope Mannigfaltigkeiten vor, denn fiir das allgemeine Bogenelementquadrat (0. 2) 2 gilt hier ds == o. Diese vollisotropen Mannigfaltigkeiten wurden nicht nur von J. LENSE und M. PINL sondern auch von E. BOMPIANI (vgl. [13J - [17]) studiert. Allgemeine Einbettungsprobleme isotroper Mannigfaltigkeiten in regulare Riemannsche Raume hat vor allem W. O. VOGEL behandelt (vgl. [250J - [254]). Eine zusammen fassende Darstellung iiber den bisher angesprochenen Themenkomplex wird unabhangig von diesem Buch in shape einer Monographie von W. O. VOGEL publiziert werden.

Download Apollonius: Conics Books V to VII: The Arabic Translation of by Gerald J. Toomer PDF

By Gerald J. Toomer

With the ebook of this e-book I discharge a debt which our period has lengthy owed to the reminiscence of a superb mathematician of antiquity: to pub­ lish the /llost books" of the Conics of Apollonius within the shape that's the nearest we need to the unique, the Arabic model of the Banu Musil. Un­ til now this has been obtainable in basic terms in Halley's Latin translation of 1710 (and translations into different languages solely depending on that). whereas I yield to none in my admiration for Halley's version of the Conics, it truly is faraway from pleasant the necessities of contemporary scholarship. specifically, it doesn't comprise the Arabic textual content. i'm hoping that the current version won't simply treatment these deficiencies, yet also will function a beginning for the learn of the impression of the Conics within the medieval Islamic global. I recognize with gratitude the aid of a few associations and other people. the loo Simon Guggenheim Memorial origin, via the award of 1 of its Fellowships for 1985-86, enabled me to commit an unbroken 12 months to this undertaking, and to refer to crucial fabric within the Bodleian Li­ brary, Oxford, and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. Corpus Christi Col­ lege, Cambridge, appointed me to a vacationing Fellowship in Trinity time period, 1988, which allowed me to make reliable use of the wealthy assets of either the collage Library, Cambridge, and the Bodleian Library.
