Algebra and Geometry by Alan F. Beardon

By Alan F. Beardon

Describing cornerstones of arithmetic, this easy textbook offers a unified method of algebra and geometry. It covers the guidelines of complicated numbers, scalar and vector items, determinants, linear algebra, staff idea, permutation teams, symmetry teams and points of geometry together with teams of isometries, rotations, and round geometry. The booklet emphasises the interactions among issues, and every subject is consistently illustrated by utilizing it to explain and talk about the others. Many principles are constructed steadily, with every one element provided at a time whilst its significance turns into clearer. to help during this, the textual content is split into brief chapters, every one with routines on the finish. The similar site gains an HTML model of the booklet, additional textual content at better and reduce degrees, and extra workouts and examples. It additionally hyperlinks to an digital maths word list, giving definitions, examples and hyperlinks either to the e-book and to exterior resources.

Global geometry and mathematical physics

This quantity includes the complaints of a summer time college awarded by way of the Centro Internazionale Matematico Estivo, held at Montecatini Terme, Italy, in July 1988. This summer season programme used to be dedicated to equipment of worldwide differential geometry and algebraic geometry in box idea, with the most emphasis on istantons, vortices and different comparable 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 booklet is a set of survey articles in a wide box of the geometrical concept of the calculus of diversifications and its purposes in research, geometry and physics. it's a commemorative quantity to have fun the sixty-fifth birthday of Professor Krupa, one of many founders of recent geometric variational thought, and a tremendous contributor to this subject and its functions during the last thirty-five years.

Singular Semi-Riemannian Geometry

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