A New Approach to Differential Geometry using Clifford's by John Snygg

By John Snygg

Differential geometry is the examine of the curvature and calculus of curves and surfaces. A New method of Differential Geometry utilizing Clifford's Geometric Algebra simplifies the dialogue to an available point of differential geometry by means of introducing Clifford algebra. This presentation is correct simply because Clifford algebra is an efficient instrument for facing the rotations intrinsic to the research of curved space.

 

Complete with chapter-by-chapter routines, an summary of basic relativity, and short biographies of historic figures, this finished textbook provides a useful advent to differential geometry. it is going to function an invaluable source for upper-level undergraduates,  beginning-level graduate scholars, and researchers within the algebra and physics communities.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An process through Randers areas" solely bargains with a different classification of Finsler metrics -- Randers metrics, that are outlined because the sum of a Riemannian metric and a 1-form. Randers metrics derive from the examine on basic Relativity concept and feature been utilized in lots of components of the common sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this booklet is to explain and boost the conceptual, structural and summary taking into consideration arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual procedure; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal gains. those rules are rigorously stimulated, defined and illustrated by means of examples in order that a few of the extra technical proofs may be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a chain of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: glossy common Topology makes a speciality of the techniques, operations, ideas, and methods hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The book first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, uncomplicated ideas in topological areas, and diverse topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal features, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment version, is the 1st systematic exposition of the speculation of neighborhood iterated functionality platforms, neighborhood fractal services and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The e-book is predicated on Massopust’s paintings on and contributions to the speculation of fractal interpolation, and the writer makes use of a couple of tools—including research, topology, algebra, and chance theory—to introduce readers to this intriguing topic.
