# Riemannian Geometry of Contact and Symplectic Manifolds by David E. Blair

By David E. Blair

This moment version, divided into fourteen chapters, offers a accomplished therapy of touch and symplectic manifolds from the Riemannian viewpoint. The monograph examines the fundamental principles intimately and offers many illustrative examples for the reader.

Riemannian Geometry of touch and Symplectic Manifolds, moment Edition presents new fabric in so much chapters, yet a specific emphasis is still on touch manifolds. Researchers, mathematicians, and graduate scholars in touch and symplectic manifold conception and in Riemannian geometry will make the most of this paintings. A simple direction in Riemannian geometry is a prerequisite.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An strategy through Randers areas" completely offers with a different 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 learn on common Relativity concept and feature been utilized in lots of components of the common sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this e-book is to explain and boost the conceptual, structural and summary contemplating arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual process; supplying a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive aspects. those principles are conscientiously influenced, defined and illustrated by way of examples in order that some of the extra technical proofs will be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a chain of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: sleek normal Topology specializes in the procedures, operations, ideas, and techniques hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The e-book first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, easy strategies 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 idea of neighborhood iterated functionality platforms, 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 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 interesting topic.
