Applied Differential Geometry: A Modern Introduction by Vladimir G Ivancevic

By Vladimir G Ivancevic

This graduate-level monographic textbook treats utilized differential geometry from a latest clinical point of view. Co-authored by means of the originator of the world's major human movement simulator - "Human Biodynamics Engine", a posh, 264-mechanical approach, modeled via differential-geometric instruments - this can be the 1st publication that mixes glossy differential geometry with a large spectrum of purposes, from sleek mechanics and physics, through nonlinear regulate, to biology and human sciences. The publication is designed for a two-semester direction, which supplies mathematicians various purposes for his or her conception and physicists, in addition to different scientists and engineers, a robust concept underlying their versions.

Geometric Phases in Classical and Quantum Mechanics

This paintings examines the gorgeous and demanding actual notion often called the 'geometric phase,' bringing jointly varied actual phenomena lower than a unified mathematical and actual scheme. a number of well-established geometric and topological tools underscore the mathematical therapy of the topic, emphasizing a coherent point of view at a slightly subtle point.

Geometry VI: Riemannian Geometry (Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences) (v. 6)

This ebook treats that a part of Riemannian geometry concerning extra classical subject matters in a really unique, transparent and stable kind. the writer effectively combines the co-ordinate and invariant techniques to differential geometry, giving the reader instruments for functional calculations in addition to a theoretical figuring out of the topic.

Collected papers of V. K. Patodi

Vijay Kumar Patodi was once a super Indian mathematicians who made, in the course of his brief lifestyles, basic contributions to the analytic facts of the index theorem and to the examine of differential geometric invariants of manifolds. This set of amassed papers edited via Prof M Atiyah and Prof Narasimhan contains his path-breaking papers at the McKean-Singer conjecture and the analytic facts of Riemann-Roch-Hirzebruch theorem for Kähler manifolds.

Unfolding CR singularities

A proposal of unfolding, or multi-parameter deformation, of CR singularities of actual submanifolds in complicated manifolds is proposed, in addition to a definition of equivalence of unfoldings lower than the motion of a gaggle of analytic variations. when it comes to genuine surfaces in advanced $2$-space, deformations of elliptic, hyperbolic, and parabolic issues are analyzed by means of placing the parameter-dependent actual analytic defining equations into general kinds as much as a few order.
