Download E-books Geometry of Hypersurfaces PDF

By Thomas E. Cecil

This exposition offers the state-of-the artwork at the differential geometry of hypersurfaces in actual, advanced, and quaternionic house types. specific emphasis is put on isoparametric and Dupin hypersurfaces in genuine house types in addition to Hopf hypersurfaces in complicated area varieties. The booklet is out there to a reader who has accomplished a one-year graduate direction in differential geometry. The textual content, together with open difficulties and an in depth checklist of references, is a wonderful source for researchers during this area.

Geometry of Hypersurfaces starts with the fundamental conception of submanifolds in actual house kinds. subject matters comprise form operators, valuable curvatures and foliations, tubes and parallel hypersurfaces, curvature spheres and focal submanifolds. the focal point then turns to the speculation of isoparametric hypersurfaces in spheres. very important examples and type effects are given, together with the development of isoparametric hypersurfaces in keeping with representations of Clifford algebras. An in-depth therapy of Dupin hypersurfaces follows with effects which are proved within the context of Lie sphere geometry in addition to those who are acquired utilizing general tools of submanifold conception. subsequent comes a radical remedy of the speculation of actual hypersurfaces in advanced area forms.  A primary concentration is a whole facts of the category of Hopf hypersurfaces with consistent important curvatures because of Kimura and Berndt. The publication concludes with the fundamental idea of actual hypersurfaces in quaternionic area varieties, together with statements of the foremost class effects and instructions for additional research.

Download E-books A Combination of Geometry Theorem Proving and Nonstandard Analysis with Application to Newton’s Principia PDF

By Jacques Fleuriot PhD, MEng (auth.)

Sir Isaac Newton's philosophi Naturalis Principia Mathematica'(the Principia) encompasses a prose-style mix of geometric and restrict reasoning that has frequently been seen as logically vague.
In A mix of Geometry Theorem Proving and NonstandardAnalysis, Jacques Fleuriot offers a formalization of Lemmas and Propositions from the Principia utilizing a mixture of tools from geometry and nonstandard research. The mechanization of the tactics, which respects a lot of Newton's unique reasoning, is constructed in the theorem prover Isabelle. the appliance of this framework to the mechanization of common actual research utilizing nonstandard suggestions can be discussed.

Download E-books Apollonius: Conics Books V to VII: The Arabic Translation of the Lost Greek Original in the Version of the Banū Mūsā (Sources in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences) PDF

By Gerald J. Toomer

With the booklet of this ebook I discharge a debt which our period has lengthy owed to the reminiscence of an exceptional mathematician of antiquity: to pub­ lish the /llost books" of the Conics of Apollonius within the shape that is the nearest we need to the unique, the Arabic model of the Banu Musil. Un­ til now this has been obtainable simply in Halley's Latin translation of 1710 (and translations into different languages completely depending on that). whereas I yield to none in my admiration for Halley's version of the Conics, it's faraway from pleasing the necessities of contemporary scholarship. specifically, it doesn't comprise the Arabic textual content. i'm hoping that the current version won't purely treatment these deficiencies, yet also will function a origin for the examine of the impact of the Conics within the medieval Islamic international. I recognize with gratitude the aid of a couple of associations and other people. the loo Simon Guggenheim Memorial starting place, via the award of 1 of its Fellowships for 1985-86, enabled me to dedicate an unbroken 12 months to this undertaking, and to refer to crucial fabric within the Bodleian Li­ brary, Oxford, and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. Corpus Christi Col­ lege, Cambridge, appointed me to a vacationing Fellowship in Trinity time period, 1988, which allowed me to make strong use of the wealthy assets of either the collage Library, Cambridge, and the Bodleian Library.
