Geometry 2 by Marcel Berger, Michael Cole, Silvio Levy

By Marcel Berger, Michael Cole, Silvio Levy

This can be the second one a part of the 2-volume textbook Geometry which supplies a really readable and full of life presentation of huge elements of geometry within the classical feel. an enticing attribute of the e-book is that it appeals systematically to the reader's instinct and imaginative and prescient, and illustrates the mathematical textual content with many figures. for every subject the writer provides a theorem that's esthetically entertaining and simply acknowledged - even if the evidence of an identical theorem should be relatively not easy and hid. Many open difficulties and references to trendy literature are given. one more robust trait of the booklet is that it presents a accomplished and unified reference resource for the sector of geometry within the complete breadth of its subfields and ramifications.

Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis: Israel Seminar by C. J. Read (auth.), Joram Lindenstrauss, Vitali D. Milman

By C. J. Read (auth.), Joram Lindenstrauss, Vitali D. Milman (eds.)

This is the 3rd released quantity of the court cases of the Israel Seminar on Geometric points of practical research. the big majority of the papers during this quantity are unique examine papers. there has been final yr a robust emphasis on classical finite-dimensional convexity concept and its reference to Banach house conception. lately, it has develop into obtrusive that the notions and result of the neighborhood idea of Banach areas are necessary in fixing classical questions in convexity idea. the current quantity contributes to clarifying this aspect. additionally this quantity comprises uncomplicated contributions to ergodic conception, invariant subspace thought and qualitative differential geometry.

Vorlesungen ueber Differentialgeometrie. by Blaschke W.

By Blaschke W.

Es handelt sich hier um die verschiedenen Arten der Kugelgeometrie,die sich alle einbauen lassen in die sogenannte höhere Kugelgeometrie von Lie und auf deren Boden systematisch zusammengefaßt werden können. Die allgemeine Kugelgeometrie liefert ein Beispiel zur Auseinandersetzung der Ideen von Kleins Erlanger Programm, das an Schlagkraft dem der projektiven Geometrie gleichwertig, ja, wenn guy zu den schwierigeren Fragen der Differentialgeometrie übergeht, sogar überlegen erscheint. Besonders handelt es sich urn die Darstellung der Inversionsgeometrie des Raumes (oder, wie wir sagen wollen, urn die Kugelgeometrie von Mobius) und um die Kugelgeometne von Laguerre. Diese letztere Gruppe ist heute für die Physik als Gruppe der speziellen Relativitätstheorie wichtig geworden. Von der Kugelgeometrie aus gewinnt guy aber weiter auch Einblick in die verschiedenen Zweige der nichteuklidischen Geometrie.
