Download Foundations of Hyperbolic Manifolds: 149 (Graduate Texts in by John Ratcliffe PDF

By John Ratcliffe

This seriously class-tested ebook is an exposition of the theoretical foundations of hyperbolic manifolds. it's a either a textbook and a reference. A uncomplicated wisdom of algebra and topology on the first yr graduate point of an American collage is believed. the 1st half is worried with hyperbolic geometry and discrete teams. the second one half is dedicated to the idea of hyperbolic manifolds. The 3rd half integrates the 1st elements in a improvement of the idea of hyperbolic orbifolds. each one bankruptcy comprises routines and a bit of ancient feedback. A recommendations handbook is on the market separately.

Hyperbolic Geometry (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)

The geometry of the hyperbolic airplane has been an lively and interesting box of mathematical inquiry for many of the previous centuries. This booklet presents a self-contained creation to the topic, delivering the reader with a company grab of the thoughts and strategies of this pretty quarter of arithmetic.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This booklet bargains with fractals in figuring out difficulties encountered in earth technological know-how, and their ideas. It starts off with an research of 2 periods of tools (homogeneous fractals random versions, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) largely subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, specially for learning capability fields and their comparable resource distributions.

Differential Forms and Connections

This 1994 e-book introduces the instruments of recent differential geometry, external calculus, manifolds, vector bundles and connections, to complicated undergraduate and starting graduate scholars in arithmetic, physics and engineering. The publication covers either classical floor idea and the trendy concept of connections and curvature, and contains a bankruptcy on functions to theoretical physics.

Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry: An Analytic Approach

This publication offers a rigorous remedy of the basics of airplane geometry: Euclidean, round, elliptical and hyperbolic. the first function is to acquaint the reader with the classical result of aircraft Euclidean and nonEuclidean geometry, congruence theorems, concurrence theorems, category of isometries, attitude addition and trigonometrical formulae.
