Non-Riemannian Geometry (Dover Books on Mathematics) by Luther Pfahler Eisenhart

By Luther Pfahler Eisenhart

Non-Riemannian Geometry offers primarily with manifolds ruled through the geometry of paths co-developed by means of the prestigious mathematician Luther Pfahler Eisenhart, the writer of this article. He starts with a attention of uneven connections, after which proceeds to a contrasting survey of symmetric connections. Discusses projective geometry of paths and the geometry of sub-spaces. 1927 edition.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An method through Randers areas" solely offers with a distinct 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 study on basic Relativity concept and feature been utilized in lots of parts of the common sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this e-book is to explain and improve the conceptual, structural and summary taking into account arithmetic. particular mathematical buildings are used to demonstrate the conceptual technique; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive aspects. those rules are conscientiously stimulated, defined and illustrated through examples in order that some of the extra technical proofs could be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a chain of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: glossy basic Topology specializes in the methods, operations, rules, and ways 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, simple options in topological areas, and diverse topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal features, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment variation, is the 1st systematic exposition of the speculation of neighborhood iterated functionality structures, neighborhood fractal services and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The e-book relies 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 likelihood theory—to introduce readers to this intriguing topic.
