Differential Geometry from a Singularity Theory Viewpoint by Shyuichi Izumiya,Maria del Carmen Romero Fuster,Maria

By Shyuichi Izumiya,Maria del Carmen Romero Fuster,Maria Aparecida Soares Ruas,Farid Tari

Differential Geometry from a Singularity idea Viewpoint offers a brand new examine the interesting and classical topic of the differential geometry of surfaces in Euclidean areas. The ebook makes use of singularity concept to trap a few key geometric positive factors of surfaces. It describes the idea of touch and its hyperlink with the speculation of caustics and wavefronts. It then makes use of the strong ideas of those theories to infer geometric information regarding surfaces embedded in three, four and 5-dimensional Euclidean areas. The e-book additionally comprises contemporary paintings of the authors and their collaborators at the geometry of sub-manifolds in Minkowski spaces.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An method through Randers areas" solely offers with a unique type 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 normal Relativity idea and feature been utilized in lots of components of the common sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most goal of this booklet is to explain and improve the conceptual, structural and summary taking into account arithmetic. particular mathematical buildings are used to demonstrate the conceptual process; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal good points. those principles are conscientiously stimulated, defined and illustrated via examples in order that a number of the extra technical proofs may be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a sequence of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: glossy basic Topology makes a speciality of the methods, operations, rules, and ways hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The ebook first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, easy recommendations in topological areas, and numerous 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 capabilities and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The ebook is predicated on Massopust’s paintings on and contributions to the speculation of fractal interpolation, and the writer makes use of a few tools—including research, topology, algebra, and chance theory—to introduce readers to this intriguing topic.
