A New Approach to Differential Geometry using Clifford's by John Snygg

By John Snygg

Differential geometry is the learn of the curvature and calculus of curves and surfaces. A New method of Differential Geometry utilizing Clifford's Geometric Algebra simplifies the dialogue to an obtainable point of differential geometry through introducing Clifford algebra. This presentation is appropriate simply because Clifford algebra is a good instrument for facing the rotations intrinsic to the research of curved space.


Complete with chapter-by-chapter workouts, an summary of common relativity, and short biographies of ancient figures, this finished textbook offers a invaluable creation to differential geometry. it's going to function an invaluable source for upper-level undergraduates,  beginning-level graduate scholars, and researchers within the algebra and physics communities.

Differential Geometry of Varieties with Degenerate Gauss Maps (CMS Books in Mathematics)

This publication surveys the differential geometry of types with degenerate Gauss maps, utilizing relocating frames and external differential types in addition to tensor tools. The authors illustrate the constitution of types with degenerate Gauss maps, confirm the singular issues and singular types, locate focal photos and build a type of the forms with degenerate Gauss maps.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This quantity includes the invited contributions from talks brought within the Fall 2011 sequence of the Seminar on Mathematical Sciences and functions 2011 at Virginia nation college. participants to this quantity, who're  best researchers of their fields, current their paintings in how to generate actual interdisciplinary interplay.

Plane and Solid Geometry: Selected Topics in Plane and Solid Geometry (Universitext)

This can be a publication on Euclidean geometry that covers the traditional fabric in a very new method, whereas additionally introducing a few new subject matters that will be appropriate as a junior-senior point undergraduate textbook. the writer doesn't start within the conventional demeanour with summary geometric axioms. in its place, he assumes the true numbers, and starts off his therapy by way of introducing such smooth strategies as a metric house, vector area notation, and teams, and therefore lays a rigorous foundation for geometry whereas while giving the scholar instruments that might be precious in different classes.

A Fête of Topology: Papers Dedicated to Itiro Tamura

A Fête of Topology: Papers devoted to Itiro Tamura specializes in the development within the strategies, methodologies, and techniques curious about topology, together with foliations, cohomology, and floor bundles. The book first takes a glance at leaf closures in Riemannian foliations and differentiable singular cohomology for foliations.
