Riemannian Geometry by Sakai, Takashi

By Sakai, Takashi

This quantity is an English translation of Sakai's textbook on Riemannian geometry which used to be initially written in eastern and released in 1992. The author's cause in the back of the unique booklet was once to supply to complex undergraduate and graduate scholars an advent to fashionable Riemannian geometry which may additionally function a reference. The publication starts with a proof of the elemental concept of Riemannian geometry. distinctive emphasis is put on understandability and clarity, to steer scholars who're new to this zone. the rest chapters care for quite a few subject matters in Riemannian geometry, with the focus on comparability tools and their purposes.

The elements of solid geometry by William C. Bartol

By William C. Bartol

From the PREFACE.
i've got written this booklet, having in view the final word development of the path in arithmetic provided at Bucknell collage, and considering that the crowded curricula supply to this direction much less time and extra topics than was once the case twenty-five years ago.
In sporting ahead a process mathematical examine, not anything could make amends for hasty or imperfect practise. although, on the grounds that airplane Geometry is a nearly common requirement for admission to school, it turns into attainable, via the doorway examinations, to go into within the topic of good Geometry, simply these scholars who're already good knowledgeable in Euclidian tools of demonstration and investigation.
Believing that for such scholars the path in strong Geometry will be made particularly short with the final word good thing about having extra time for complex arithmetic, I provide this brief direction. In it are a couple of theorems for unique demonstration and plenty of illustrative examples. a piece on Mensuration is brought with the layout of calling unique realization, by way of illustrative examples, to the entire vital ideas for locating volumes and surfaces of solids, verified within the previous sections. additionally, tools for locating the volumes of the usual Polyedron, the Wedge, and the Prismoid are deduced.
For the aim of bringing the real theorems as close to as attainable to the definitions, postulates, etc., on which they relaxation, i've got came across it essential to deviate a little bit from the standard series of propositions. hence, i've got grouped within the similar part the prism and its proscribing case, the cylinder, simply because they've got such a lot of homes in universal. i've got handled the pyramid and its restricting case, the cone, in like demeanour, and so forth.
continually, i've got aimed to provide the main direct facts attainable, and to save lots of the scholar, via corollaries, the exertions of reproducing structures unnecessarily.
An event of 20 years in instructing arithmetic leads me to imagine that the scholar who will get up the topic from this short paintings, in any case can be at no drawback from no longer having used a few certainly one of our higher well known textbooks.
some of the diagrams utilized in representation are, by means of permission, from Professor Wells' geometry. In thanking him for this act of courtesy, I hope additionally to recognize my indebtedness to him for priceless relief rendered me during the corporation of his text-books, a few of which i've got had in class-room use from the date in their e-book.

5000 Jahre Geometrie: Geschichte, Kulturen, Menschen by Christoph J. Scriba

By Christoph J. Scriba

"Ein spannender Überblick über die Entwicklung von Konzepten und Erkenntnissen der Geometrie von der Frühgeschichte über die Antike, die Bauhüttenbücher des Mittelalters und die Renaissancezeit bis zur Gegenwart." archimedes "Die Fülle des Stoffes ist beeindruckend." Spektrum der Wissenschaften "Allen an Mathematik Interessierten ist dieses Buch sehr zu empfehlen. Ganz besonders gilt diese Empfehlung den Mathematik-Lehrerinnen und -Lehrern: Es gibt garantiert etwas, used to be für Sie neu und interessant ist und wodurch Sie Anregungen für Ihren Unterricht bekommen." mathemaik.de "Ich gratuliere den Autoren herzlich zu dem großen Wurf, der Ihnen mit dem wundervollen "Geschichten"-Buch gelungen ist. Das Buch ist in der ganzen Anlage originell. Die Ausstattung empfinde ich als die eben nötige Fassung für so ein Juwel." Prof. Gunter Weiss, TU Dresden, Lehrstuhl für Geometrie

Excursions in geometry by C. Stanley Ogilvy

By C. Stanley Ogilvy

"A fascinating, exciting, and instructive booklet …. The writing is outstandingly lucid, as within the author's previous books, … and the issues conscientiously chosen for optimum curiosity and elegance." — Martin Gardner.
This publication is meant for those who loved geometry once they first encountered it (and even perhaps a few who didn't) yet sensed a scarcity of highbrow stimulus and questioned what used to be lacking, or felt that the play was once finishing simply while the plot was once ultimately turning into interesting.
In this fantastic therapy, Professor Ogilvy demonstrates the mathematical problem and delight available from geometry, the single requisites being uncomplicated implements (straightedge and compass) and a bit idea. averting subject matters that require an array of recent definitions and abstractions, Professor Ogilvy attracts upon fabric that's both self-evident within the classical feel or really easy to turn out. one of the topics handled are: harmonic department and Apollonian circles, inversion geometry, the hexlet, conic sections, projective geometry, the golden part, and perspective trisection. additionally integrated are a few unsolved difficulties of contemporary geometry, together with Malfatti's challenge and the Kakeya problem.
Numerous diagrams, chosen references, and thoroughly selected difficulties improve the textual content. moreover, the useful element of notes on the again offers not just resource references but additionally a lot different fabric hugely valuable as a working observation at the text.

A Functorial Model Theory: Newer Applications to Algebraic by Cyrus F. Nourani

By Cyrus F. Nourani

This publication is an advent to a functorial version thought in line with infinitary language different types. the writer introduces the homes and beginning of those different types ahead of constructing a version idea for functors beginning with a countable fragment of an infinitary language. He additionally offers a brand new approach for producing accepted versions with different types by means of inventing countless language different types and functorial version thought. moreover, the e-book covers string versions, restrict types, and functorial models.

Vector Bundles and Complex Geometry by Oscar Garcia-Prada, Peter E. Newstead, Luis Álvarez-Cónsul,

By Oscar Garcia-Prada, Peter E. Newstead, Luis Álvarez-Cónsul, Indranil Biswas, Steven B. Bradlow, Tomás L. Gómez, Luis Alvarez-consul

This quantity incorporates a selection of papers from the convention on Vector Bundles held at Miraflores de los angeles Sierra, Madrid, Spain on June 16-20, 2008, which venerated S. Ramanan on his seventieth birthday. the most parts lined during this quantity are vector bundles, parabolic bundles, abelian types, Hilbert schemes, touch buildings, index thought, Hodge conception, and geometric invariant concept. Professor Ramanan has made vital contributions in all of those parts
