By Marcelo Epstein

Differential Geometry bargains a concise advent to a couple uncomplicated notions of recent differential geometry and their functions to stable mechanics and physics.

Concepts similar to manifolds, teams, fibre bundles and groupoids are first brought inside of a simply topological framework. they're proven to be proper to the outline of space-time, configuration areas of mechanical platforms, symmetries quite often, microstructure and native and far-off symmetries of the constitutive reaction of continuing media.

Once those rules were grasped on the topological point, the differential constitution wanted for the outline of actual fields is brought when it comes to differentiable manifolds and important body bundles. those mathematical techniques are then illustrated with examples from continuum kinematics, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, Cauchy fluxes and dislocation theory.

This ebook can be worthy for researchers and graduate scholars in technological know-how and engineering.

Fourier-Mukai and Nahm Transforms in Geometry and Mathematical Physics

Indispensable transforms, resembling the Laplace and Fourier transforms, were significant instruments in arithmetic for a minimum of centuries. within the final 3 many years the improvement of a few novel rules in algebraic geometry, classification idea, gauge idea, and string concept has been heavily on the topic of generalizations of indispensable transforms of a extra geometric personality.

Riemannsche Geometrie im Großen

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 sch? nen und ? berraschenden Einsichten gef?

Geometric analysis and function spaces

This booklet brings into concentration the synergistic interplay among research and geometry by means of interpreting numerous issues in functionality thought, actual research, harmonic research, numerous advanced variables, and workforce activities. Krantz's method is stimulated by means of examples, either classical and sleek, which spotlight the symbiotic courting among research and geometry.

Remarks (1) Various bits of the proof may be found spread over a number of references, for example [10,5,6]; the deformation theory of Kodaira is used extensively. An outline of the correspondence will be given below. (2) The above theorem is a local version: in this context "local" means virtually the same thing as "sufficiently small". Conversely, a global theorem would have to do without the "sufficient smallness". global positive definite theorem. 1, this extra structure is guaranteed by Kodaira's deformation theorems and so it doesn't have to be mentioned explicitly.
