Automorphisms of Surfaces after Nielsen and Thurston (London by Andrew J. Casson,Steven A. Bleiler

By Andrew J. Casson,Steven A. Bleiler

This booklet, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a direction given via Andrew Casson on the college of Texas, is designed to function an creation to the functions of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. particularly it offers a concise exposition of the paintings of Neilsen and Thurston at the automorphisms of surfaces. The reader calls for in basic terms an knowing of uncomplicated topology and linear algebra, whereas the early chapters on hyperbolic geometry and geometric buildings on surfaces can profitably be learn via somebody with a data of normal Euclidean geometry meaning to examine extra abour different 'geometric structures'.

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

The booklet is dedicated to the idea of pairs of compact convex units and specifically to the matter of discovering kinds of minimum representants of a couple of nonempty compact convex subsets of a in the community convex vector area within the experience of the Rådström-Hörmander idea. minimum pairs of compact convex units come up clearly 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 struggle 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 booklet is dedicated to check of the main appropriate techniques to the learn of classical box theories of the 1st order, say k-symplectic and k-cosymplectic geometry. This technique can also be in comparison with others like multisymplectic formalism. it will likely be very beneficial for researchers operating in classical box theories and graduate scholars attracted to constructing a systematic occupation within the topic.
