Download A Mathematical Gift III: The Interplay Between Topology, by Kenji Ueno, Koji Shiga, Shigeyuki Morita PDF

By Kenji Ueno, Koji Shiga, Shigeyuki Morita

This booklet will carry the wonder and enjoyable of arithmetic to the study room. It deals critical arithmetic in a full of life, reader-friendly kind. integrated are routines and lots of figures illustrating the most thoughts.
The first bankruptcy provides the geometry and topology of surfaces. between different subject matters, the authors speak about the Poincaré-Hopf theorem on serious issues of vector fields on surfaces and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem at the relation among curvature and topology (the Euler characteristic). the second one bankruptcy addresses numerous features of the concept that of measurement, together with the Peano curve and the Poincaré technique. additionally addressed is the constitution of 3-dimensional manifolds. specifically, it truly is proved that the three-d sphere is the union of 2 doughnuts.
This is the 1st of 3 volumes originating from a chain of lectures given via the authors at Kyoto collage (Japan).

Differential topology: first steps

Preserving mathematical must haves to a minimal, this undergraduate-level textual content stimulates scholars' intuitive knowing of topology whereas averting the more challenging subtleties and technicalities. Its concentration is the strategy of round transformations and the learn of serious issues of features on manifolds.

Schaum's Outline of Descriptive Geometry (Schaum's)

Even supposing this article was once written a number of years in the past, it encompasses a wealth of knowledge approximately descriptive geometry that continues to be appropriate at the present time. It does an exceptional task of jogging someone via actual size and real size/shape theorems. There are a number of solved difficulties and unsolved difficulties after every one bankruptcy.

Algebraic Topology (EMS Textbooks in Mathematics)

This publication is written as a textbook on algebraic topology. the 1st half covers the fabric for 2 introductory classes approximately homotopy and homology. the second one half offers extra complex purposes and ideas (duality, attribute periods, homotopy teams of spheres, bordism). the writer recommends beginning an introductory path with homotopy conception.

For more up-to-date treatment of differential topology, see Milnor (1965) and Hirsch (1976). One can construct an ambitious shopping list of books with which to start differential, and, more particularly, Riemannian geometry. Many of the more introductory books start with surfaces in Euclidean space and then deal with the exclusively intrinsic Riemannian geometry of surfaces. 2. Here, in addition to the references cited in the introduction to this chapter, we just note the influential two-volume treatise of Kobayashi–Nomizu (1969) on the general foundations – from connections through Riemannian metrics through curvature through the first level of specializations of areas in differential geometry, for example, curvature and geodesics, homogeneous spaces, K¨ahler manifolds, etc.

Proof. The functions t(τ ), ξ (τ ) are defined by setting t(τ ) = |(exp |B( p; ))−1 σ (τ )|, ξ (τ ) = (t(τ ))−1 (exp |B( p; ))−1 σ (τ ). 7), introduce geodesic spherical coordinates about p by defining V : [0, ) × S p → M by V (t, ξ ) = exp tξ.

Then, for (t, ξ ) ∈ [0, ) × S p , we have ∂ξ V (t, ξ ) = t(exp p )∗|tξ tξ , as we argued previously in the proof of Gauss’s lemma.

1. If δ < , then there is nothing to prove; so assume δ ≥ and fix δ0 ∈ (0, ). Then, there exists p0 ∈ S( p; δ0 ) such that d( p0 , q) = d(S( p; δ0 ), q), that is, p0 is the point on S( p; δ0 ) closest to q. Our candidate geodesic γξ , therefore, is given by ξ the unit vector in M p determined by p and p0 , that is, ξ = (1/δ0 )(exp |B( p; ))−1 ( p0 ). 1) d(γξ (t), q) = δ − t. This will certainly prove the theorem. 1) is true for t = δ0 . Indeed, δ = d( p, q) ≤ d( p, p0 ) + d( p0 , q) = δ0 + d( p0 , q).
