Projective Geometry and Projective Metrics (Dover Books on by Herbert Busemann,Paul J. Kelly

By Herbert Busemann,Paul J. Kelly

The simple effects and techniques of projective and non-Euclidean geometry are necessary for the geometer, and this book--different in content material, tools, and perspective from conventional texts--attempts to stress that truth. result of exact theorems are mentioned intimately purely once they are had to improve a sense for the topic or once they illustrate a common process. however, an strange volume of area is dedicated to the dialogue of the elemental thoughts of distance, movement, zone, and perpendicularity.
Topics comprise the projective airplane, polarities and conic sections, affine geometry, projective metrics, and non-Euclidean and spatial geometry. a variety of figures look during the textual content, which concludes with a bibliography and index.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An method through Randers areas" solely bargains 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 learn on common Relativity idea and feature been utilized in lots of components of the typical sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this publication is to explain and enhance the conceptual, structural and summary deliberating arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual method; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive aspects. those principles are conscientiously encouraged, defined and illustrated via examples in order that some 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: sleek common Topology specializes in the strategies, 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, easy recommendations in topological areas, and numerous topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal capabilities, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment version, is the 1st systematic exposition of the speculation of neighborhood iterated functionality structures, neighborhood fractal features and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The publication is predicated on Massopust’s paintings on and contributions to the idea 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 interesting topic.
