By Hans Freudenthal

Algebraical and Topological Foundations of Geometry comprises the complaints of the Colloquium on Algebraic and Topological Foundations of Geometry, held in Utrecht, the Netherlands in August 1959. The papers assessment the algebraical and topological foundations of geometry and canopy themes starting from the geometric algebra of the Möbius aircraft to the idea of parallels with functions to closed geodesies. teams of homeomorphisms and topological descriptive planes also are discussed.

Comprised of 26 chapters, this publication introduces the reader to the idea of parallels with functions to closed geodesies; teams of homeomorphisms; complemented modular lattices; and topological descriptive planes. next chapters specialize in collineation teams; unprecedented algebras and remarkable teams; the relationship among algebra and buildings with ruler and compasses; and using differential geometry and analytic team conception tools in foundations of geometry. Von Staudt projectivities of Moufang planes also are thought of, and an axiomatic therapy of polar geometry is presented.

This monograph may be of curiosity to scholars of mathematics.

Semiparallel Submanifolds in Space Forms: Envelopes of Symmetric Orbits (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

Without difficulty, this publication deals the main entire survey up to now of the idea of semiparallel submanifolds. It starts with the mandatory historical past fabric, detailing symmetric and semisymmetric Riemannian manifolds, delicate manifolds in house types, and parallel submanifolds. The ebook then introduces semiparallel submanifolds and offers a few characterizations for his or her type in addition to numerous subclasses.

Topology (UNITEXT)

This can be an introductory textbook on normal and algebraic topology, geared toward an individual with a uncomplicated wisdom of calculus and linear algebra. It presents complete proofs and comprises many examples and workouts. The lined issues include: set concept and cardinal mathematics; axiom of selection and Zorn's lemma; topological areas and non-stop features; connectedness and compactness; Alexandrov compactification; quotient topologies; countability and separation axioms; prebasis and Alexander's theorem; the Tychonoff theorem and paracompactness; whole metric areas and serve as areas; Baire areas; homotopy of maps; the basic group; the van Kampen theorem; covering areas; Brouwer and Borsuk's theorems; unfastened teams and loose made of teams; and easy type conception.

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

This e-book is dedicated to study of the main proper methods to the learn of classical box theories of the 1st order, say k-symplectic and k-cosymplectic geometry. This strategy can be in comparison with others like multisymplectic formalism. it is going to be very worthwhile for researchers operating in classical box theories and graduate scholars attracted to constructing a systematic profession within the topic.

Mathematical Methods in Computer Aided Geometric Design II: v. 2

Mathematical tools in computing device Aided Geometric layout II covers the complaints of the 1991 overseas convention on Curves, Surfaces, CAGD, and snapshot Processing, held at Biri, Norway. This publication comprises forty eight chapters that come with the themes of blossoming, cyclides, facts becoming and interpolation, and discovering intersections of curves and surfaces.
