Download E-books Riemannsche Geometrie im Grossen (Lecture Notes in Mathematics, No. 55) (German Edition) PDF

By Wilhelm Klingenberg

Aus dem Vorwort: "Globale Probleme der Differentialgeometrie erfreuen sich eines immer noch wachsenden Interesses. Gerade in der Riemannschen Geometrie hat die Frage nach Beziehungen zwischen Riemannscher und topologischer Struktur in neuerer Zeit zu vielen schönen und überraschenden Einsichten geführt. Dabei denken wir hier vor allem an den Problemkreis: Welche topologischen Invarianten werden charakterisiert durch eine der wichtigsten isometrischen Invarianten, die Krümmung? Ziel der folgenden Noten ist, einige zentrale Resultate in dieser Richtung darzustellen. . . . Wir haben uns bemüht, die Darstellung möglichst elementar und in sich abgeschlossen zu halten und einen einfachen leistungsfähigen Kalkül zu entwickeln".

Download E-books Gradient Flows: In Metric Spaces and in the Space of Probability Measures (Lectures in Mathematics. ETH Zürich) PDF

By Luigi Ambrosio

The e-book is dedicated to the speculation of gradient flows within the basic framework of metric areas, and within the extra particular surroundings of the distance of chance measures, which supply a stunning hyperlink among optimum transportation idea and lots of evolutionary PDE's with regards to (non)linear diffusion. specific emphasis is given to the convergence of the implicit time discretization procedure and to the mistake estimates for this discretization, extending the good confirmed concept in Hilbert areas. The booklet is divided in major elements that may be learn independently of one another.

Download E-books Nonlinear PDE's and Applications: C.I.M.E. Summer School, Cetraro, Italy 2008, Editors: Luigi Ambrosio, Giuseppe Savaré (Lecture Notes in Mathematics) PDF

This quantity collects the notes of the CIME path "Nonlinear PDE's and purposes" held in Cetraro (Italy) on June 23-28, 2008. It involves 4 sequence of lectures, added by means of Stefano Bianchini (SISSA, Trieste), Eric A. Carlen (Rutgers University), Alexander Mielke (WIAS, Berlin), and Cédric Villani (Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon). They awarded a wide evaluation of far-reaching findings and intriguing new advancements referring to, particularly, optimum shipping concept, nonlinear evolution equations, practical inequalities, and differential geometry. A sampling of the most issues thought of right here contains optimum delivery, Hamilton-Jacobi equations, Riemannian geometry, and their hyperlinks with sharp geometric/functional inequalities, variational tools for learning nonlinear evolution equations and their scaling houses, and the metric/energetic thought of gradient flows and of rate-independent evolution difficulties. The booklet explores the elemental connections among all of those subject matters and issues to new study instructions in contributions through top specialists in those fields.

Download E-books Strong Rigidity of Locally Symmetric Spaces. (AM-78) (Annals of Mathematics Studies) PDF

Locally symmetric areas are generalizations of areas of continuing curvature. during this ebook the writer offers the facts of a notable phenomenon, which he calls "strong rigidity": it is a more desirable type of the deformation stress that has been investigated by way of Selberg, Calabi-Vesentini, Weil, Borel, and Raghunathan.

The evidence combines the speculation of semi-simple Lie teams, discrete subgroups, the geometry of E. Cartan's symmetric Riemannian areas, parts of ergodic conception, and the elemental theorem of projective geometry as utilized to Tit's geometries. In his facts the writer introduces new notions having self reliant curiosity: one is "pseudo-isometries"; the opposite is a idea of a quasi-conformal mapping over the department algebra okay (K equals actual, complicated, quaternion, or Cayley numbers). the writer makes an attempt to make the account available to readers with assorted backgrounds, and the ebook includes tablet descriptions of a number of the theories that input the proof.

Download E-books Projective Geometry PDF

By H.S.M. Coxeter

In Euclidean geometry, structures are made with ruler and compass. Projective geometry is easier: its structures require just a ruler. In projective geometry one by no means measures something, as an alternative, one relates one set of issues to a different by means of a projectivity. the 1st chapters of this e-book introduce the $64000 techniques of the topic and supply the logical foundations. The 3rd and fourth chapters introduce the well-known theorems of Desargues and Pappus. Chapters five and six utilize projectivities on a line and airplane, respectively. the following 3 chapters enhance a self-contained account of von Staudt's method of the speculation of conics. the trendy technique utilized in that improvement is exploited in bankruptcy 10, which offers with the best finite geometry that's wealthy adequate to demonstrate the entire theorems nontrivially. The concluding chapters exhibit the connections between projective, Euclidean, and analytic geometry.

Download E-books Handbook of Pseudo-riemannian Geometry and Supersymmetry (IRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics) PDF

The aim of this guide is to offer an summary of a few contemporary advancements in differential geometry regarding supersymmetric box theories. the most issues lined are: designated geometry and supersymmetry Generalized geometry Geometries with torsion Para-geometries Holonomy thought Symmetric areas and areas of continuing curvature Conformal geometry Wave equations on Lorentzian manifolds D-branes and K-theory The meant viewers involves complicated scholars and researchers operating in differential geometry, string idea, and comparable components. The emphasis is on geometrical constructions taking place on the right track areas of supersymmetric box theories. a few of these buildings could be absolutely defined within the classical framework of pseudo-Riemannian geometry. Others bring about new recommendations concerning quite a few fields of study, resembling detailed Kähler geometry or generalized geometry. A ebook of the ecu Mathematical Society. dispensed in the Americas by way of the yank Mathematical Society.

Download E-books Pseudodifferential Operators and Spectral Theory (Springer Series in Soviet Mathematics) PDF

By M.A. Shubin

I had combined emotions whilst i assumed how I should still arrange the publication for the second one variation. It was once transparent to me that I needed to right all errors and misprints that have been present in the e-book through the lifetime of the 1st variation. This used to be effortless to do as the error have been in most cases minor and simple to right, and the misprints weren't many. It was once more challenging to make a decision no matter if I should still replace the booklet (or no less than its bibliography) by some means. i made a decision that it didn't want a lot of an updating. the most price of any stable mathematical ebook is that it teaches its reader a few language and a few abilities. it may now not exhaust any sizeable subject regardless of how demanding the writer attempted. Pseudodifferential operators turned a language and a device of research of partial differential equations some time past. for that reason it truly is meaningless to attempt to exhaust this subject. here's a simple evidence. As of July three, 2000, MathSciNet (the database of the yankee Mathematical Society) in a number of seconds stumbled on 3695 resources, between them 363 books, in the course of its look for "pseudodifferential operator". (The seek additionally ended in discovering 963 assets for "pseudo-differential operator" yet i used to be not able to envision how a lot the consequences ofthese searches intersected). which means the corresponding phrases look both within the name or within the evaluation released in Mathematical experiences.
