If you have ever inspiration that arithmetic and paintings do not combine, this gorgeous visible heritage of geometry will swap your brain. As a lot a piece of artwork as a booklet approximately arithmetic, Beautiful Geometry provides greater than sixty beautiful colour plates illustrating a variety of geometric styles and theorems, followed via short bills of the attention-grabbing heritage and folks in the back of each one. With art via Swiss artist Eugen Jost and textual content through math historian Eli Maor, this specific get together of geometry covers a number of matters, from straightedge-and-compass structures to fascinating configurations regarding infinity. the result's a pleasant and informative illustrated journey during the 2,500-year-old heritage of 1 of crucial branches of mathematics.

This publication deals 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 thought are mentioned, together with the Pontrjagin, Euler, and Chern attribute periods of a vector package.
"A lucid and masterly survey. " — arithmetic GazetteProfessor Pedoe is celebrated as a great instructor and an excellent geometer. His talents in either components are truly obtrusive during this self-contained, well-written, and lucid creation to the scope and strategies of hassle-free geometry. It covers the geometry frequently integrated in undergraduate classes in arithmetic, with the exception of the speculation of convex units.
Metric and Differential Geometry grew out of a equally named convention held at Chern Institute of arithmetic, Tianjin and Capital basic college, Beijing. a number of the contributions to this quantity hide a large variety of subject matters in metric and differential geometry, together with metric areas, Ricci circulate, Einstein manifolds, Kähler geometry, index concept, hypoelliptic Laplacian and analytic torsion.
The e-book demonstrates the improvement of fundamental geometry on domain names of homogeneous areas for the reason that 1990. It covers a variety of themes, together with research on multidimensional Euclidean domain names and Riemannian symmetric areas of arbitrary ranks in addition to fresh paintings on part house and the Heisenberg workforce.
