A Vector Space Approach to Geometry (Dover Books on by Melvin Hausner

By Melvin Hausner

The results of geometry and linear algebra on one another obtain shut awareness during this exam of geometry’s correlation with different branches of math and technological know-how. In-depth discussions contain a assessment of systematic geometric motivations in vector house thought and matrix thought; using the heart of mass in geometry, with an creation to barycentric coordinates; axiomatic improvement of determinants in a bankruptcy facing sector and quantity; and a cautious attention of the particle challenge. 1965 edition.

Pairs of Compact Convex Sets: Fractional Arithmetic with Convex Sets (Mathematics and Its Applications)

The ebook is dedicated to the idea of pairs of compact convex units and specifically to the matter of discovering sorts of minimum representants of a couple of nonempty compact convex subsets of a in the neighborhood convex vector area within the experience of the Rådström-Hörmander idea. minimum pairs of compact convex units come up obviously in several fields of arithmetic, as for example in non-smooth research, set-valued research and within the box of combinatorial convexity.

Die Keplersche Vermutung: Wie Mathematiker ein 400 Jahre altes Rätsel lösten (German Edition)

Sir Walter Raleigh wollte wissen, wie Kanonenkugeln in einem Schiff am dichtesten gestapelt werden können. Der Astronom Johannes Kepler lieferte im Jahr 1611 die Antwort: genau so, wie Gemüsehändler ihre Orangen und Tomaten aufstapeln. Noch battle dies lediglich eine Vermutung – erst 1998 gelang dem amerikanischen Mathematiker Thomas Hales mit Hilfe von Computern der mathematische Beweis.

Methods of Differential Geometry in Classical Field Theories:k-Symplectic and k-Cosymplectic Approaches

This ebook is dedicated to check of the main suitable ways to the learn of classical box theories of the 1st order, say k-symplectic and k-cosymplectic geometry. This procedure is additionally in comparison with others like multisymplectic formalism. will probably be very worthwhile for researchers operating in classical box theories and graduate scholars attracted to constructing a systematic occupation within the topic.
