By Vladimir G Ivancevic

This graduate-level monographic textbook treats utilized differential geometry from a contemporary clinical standpoint. Co-authored through the originator of the area s best human movement simulator Human Biodynamics Engine , a posh, 264-DOF bio-mechanical method, modeled through differential-geometric instruments this is often the 1st booklet that mixes smooth differential geometry with a large spectrum of purposes, from sleek mechanics and physics, through nonlinear keep an eye on, to biology and human sciences. The e-book is designed for a two-semester direction, which supplies mathematicians numerous functions for his or her conception and physicists, in addition to different scientists and engineers, a powerful concept underlying their versions.

Metric Structures in Differential Geometry

This publication bargains an creation to the speculation of differentiable manifolds and fiber bundles. It examines bundles from the viewpoint of metric differential geometry: Euclidean bundles, Riemannian connections, curvature, and Chern-Weil concept are mentioned, together with the Pontrjagin, Euler, and Chern attribute periods of a vector package deal.

Stochastic Geometry: Lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Martina Franca, Italy, September 13–18, 2004

Stochastic Geometry is the mathematical self-discipline which reports mathematical versions for random geometric buildings, as they seem usually in just about all average sciences or technical fields. even if its roots might be traced again to the 18th century (the Buffon needle problem), the trendy thought of random units was once based through D.

Projective geometry

This article explores the tools of the projective geometry of the airplane. a few wisdom of the weather of metrical and analytical geometry is believed; a rigorous first bankruptcy serves to arrange readers. Following an creation to the equipment of the symbolic notation, the textual content advances to a attention of the speculation of one-to-one correspondence.

A Riemannian manifold is an analytic manifold in which each tangent space is equipped with an inner product g = ·, · , in a manner concepts of scalar, vector and linear operator in a way that is independent of any chosen frame of reference. While tensors can be represented by multi-dimensional arrays of components, the point of having a tensor theory is to explain the further implications of saying that a quantity is a tensor, beyond that specifying it requires a number of indexed components. In particular, tensors behave in special ways under coordinate transformations.

Algebraic varieties and schemes: An algebraic variety is glued together from affine algebraic varieties, which are zero sets of polynomials over algebraically closed fields. Schemes are likewise glued together from affine schemes, which are a generalization of algebraic varieties.

Because of singular points one cannot assume a variety is a manifold.
