Minimal Surfaces of Codimension One by Umberto Massari

By Umberto Massari

This ebook provides a unified presentation of other mathematical instruments used to resolve classical difficulties like Plateau's challenge, Bernstein's challenge, Dirichlet's challenge for the minimum floor Equation and the Capillary challenge. the elemental thought is a fairly effortless geometrical definition of codimension one surfaces. The isoperimetric estate of the Euclidean balls, including the fashionable concept of partial differential equations are used to resolve the nineteenth Hilbert challenge. additionally integrated is a latest mathematical therapy of capillary difficulties.

Geometrical and Statistical Methods of Analysis of Star by Anatoly T. Fomenko, Vladimir V. Kalashnikov, Gleb V.

By Anatoly T. Fomenko, Vladimir V. Kalashnikov, Gleb V. Nosovsky

This easy-to-follow booklet deals a statistico-geometrical method for relationship old celebrity catalogs. The authors' clinical tools exhibit statistical homes of old catalogs and triumph over the problems in their relationship originated via the low accuracy of those catalogs. equipment are confirmed on reliably dated medieval big name catalogs and utilized to the big name catalog of the Almagest. the following, the relationship of Ptolemy's well-known big name catalog is reconsidered and recalculated utilizing sleek mathematical recommendations. The textual content offers worthy info from astronomy and astrometry. It additionally covers the background of observational apparatus and techniques for measuring coordinates of stars. Many chapters are dedicated to the Almagest, from a initial research to an international statistical processing of the catalog and its easy elements. arithmetic are simplified during this e-book for simple analyzing. This booklet will end up beneficial for mathematicians, astronomers, astrophysicists, experts in average sciences, historians attracted to mathematical and statistical equipment, and second-year arithmetic scholars.

Applicable Differential Geometry by M. Crampin

By M. Crampin

This can be an creation to geometrical subject matters which are worthy in utilized arithmetic and theoretical physics, together with manifolds, metrics, connections, Lie teams, spinors and bundles, getting ready readers for the research of recent remedies of mechanics, gauge fields theories, relativity and gravitation. The order of presentation corresponds to that used for the appropriate fabric in theoretical physics: the geometry of affine areas, that is acceptable to big relativity conception, in addition to to Newtonian mechanics, is constructed within the first 1/2 the ebook, and the geometry of manifolds, that's wanted for normal relativity and gauge box idea, within the moment part. research is incorporated no longer for its personal sake, yet purely the place it illuminates geometrical rules. the fashion is casual and transparent but rigorous; every one bankruptcy ends with a precis of significant strategies and effects. moreover there are over 650 routines, making this a ebook that is helpful as a textual content for complex undergraduate and postgraduate scholars.

Geometrical optics: An introduction to Hamilton's method by J. L. Synge

By J. L. Synge

It's under no circumstances effortless for the utilized mathematician to come to a decision how a lot significance he may still connect to the extra summary and aesthetic aspect of his paintings and what sort of to the exact functions to physics, astronomy, engineering or the layout of tools. To all appearances, Sir William Rowan Hamilton (1850-1865) connected little value to the sensible functions of his approach, and it was once simply with the ebook of his Mathematical Papers that it used to be attainable to shape a extra right and balanced judgement of Hamilton as an utilized mathematician. nice certainly used to be the labour which he hired with the intention to using his option to the layout of optical tools, yet for him the summary wand aesthetic facet of his paintings used to be of rather a lot better public significance than its functional use that the main points of software remained unpublished until eventually lengthy after her dying and lengthy after different employees had stumbled on identical tactics.

Topology and Geometry: Rohlin Seminar by O. Ya Viro

By O. Ya Viro

This quantity is a suite of papers devoted to the reminiscence of V. A. Rohlin (1919-1984) - a good mathematician and the founding father of the Leningrad topological institution. It comprises survey and learn papers on topology of manifolds, topological elements of the speculation of complicated and actual algebraic types, topology of projective configuration areas and areas of convex polytopes.
