**Global geometry and mathematical physics**

This quantity includes the complaints of a summer season college offered via the Centro Internazionale Matematico Estivo, held at Montecatini Terme, Italy, in July 1988. This summer time programme was once dedicated to equipment of worldwide differential geometry and algebraic geometry in box idea, with the most emphasis on istantons, vortices and different related constructions in gauge theories; Riemann surfaces and conformal box theories; geometry of supermanifolds and functions to physics.

**Variations, geometry and physics, In honour of Demeter Krupka's 65 birthday**

This e-book is a suite of survey articles in a large box of the geometrical conception of the calculus of diversifications and its functions in research, geometry and physics. it's a commemorative quantity to have a good time the sixty-fifth birthday of Professor Krupa, one of many founders of contemporary geometric variational idea, and an important contributor to this subject and its purposes over the last thirty-five years.

**Singular Semi-Riemannian Geometry**

This e-book is an exposition of "Singular Semi-Riemannian Geometry"- the examine of a tender manifold provided with a degenerate (singular) metric tensor of arbitrary signature. the most subject of curiosity is these situations the place the metric tensor is thought to be nondegenerate. within the literature, manifolds with degenerate metric tensors were studied extrinsically as degenerate submanifolds of semi Riemannian manifolds.

As a torus is obtained by rotating Sxs a circle around an axis, it can be parametrised by so G/G is topologically a torus. We shall see later that every torus with a conformal structure can be obtained in this way. 6. 1. Let G - D {o} and let G be the cyclic group generated by g(z) = 2x + iy/ 2. Show that g is a homeomorphism of accumulates in and q(i) D. Let D q : D -* D/G are distinct points of onto itself and that no orbit be the natural projection so D/G. q(l) Show that q(l + 2_ni) = q( 2_n + i) and by letting n -► +°°, 2.

For each z in D select a compact disc finitely many images we may assume that G. g(K) K The restriction of K q to centred at z and lying in D. K g(K) are disjoint for each non-trivial and We choose one such K meet for each K2 z and denote its interior by is denoted by and so is a homeomorphism of Only and so by decreasing the radius of qz : this is onto an open subset 1-1 qz (Kz ) on of K g in Kz . Kz D/G. These open subsets cover D/G and we take as our inverse charts the functions % : Kz - W * The transition maps are of the form (q^) Select any in the domain of this map so 5 = (qw)"1qz (c) = g(c) say, for some g in G.

W QUOTIENT SURFACES We are going to construct Riemann surfaces as quotient spaces D/G derived from a group G of homeomorphisms of a plane domain D onto itself. As every Riemann surface arises in this way (we cannot prove this yet), this construction is evidently of great importance. Recall that a Mobius transformation , N az+b g(z) = . 4 and the Exercises. Our construction depends on finding certain groups of Mobius transformations. 1. Let D be a domain in and let G be a group of Mobius transformations with the properties (1) g(D) = D for every (2) if and g€G g g*I, in G?
