By Jacques Neveu

This e-book presents a finished advent to fashionable international variational conception on fibred areas. it truly is in line with differentiation and integration thought of differential types on gentle manifolds, and at the recommendations of world research and geometry corresponding to jet prolongations of manifolds, mappings, and Lie teams. The publication could be necessary for researchers and PhD scholars in differential geometry, international research, differential equations on manifolds, and mathematical physics, and for the readers who desire to adopt additional rigorous examine during this vast interdisciplinary box. Featured themes - research on manifolds - Differential kinds on jet areas - worldwide variational functionals - Euler-Lagrange mapping - Helmholtz shape and the inverse challenge - Symmetries and the Noether's thought of conservation legislation - Regularity and the Hamilton concept - Variational sequences - Differential invariants and normal variational ideas - First publication at the geometric foundations of Lagrange constructions - New rules on international variational functionals - whole proofs of all theorems - unique therapy of variational rules in box idea, inc. common relativity - easy buildings and instruments: international research, tender manifolds, fibred areas

Conceptual Spaces: The Geometry of Thought

Inside cognitive technology, ways presently dominate the matter of modeling representations. The symbolic procedure perspectives cognition as computation related to symbolic manipulation. Connectionism, a unique case of associationism, versions institutions utilizing synthetic neuron networks. Peter Gardenfors bargains his concept of conceptual representations as a bridge among the symbolic and connectionist ways.

The Art of the Intelligible (survey of mathematics in its conceptual development)

A compact survey, on the effortless point, of a few of the main vital thoughts of arithmetic. cognizance is paid to their technical positive factors, ancient improvement and broader philosophical importance. all the a number of branches of arithmetic is mentioned individually, yet their interdependence is emphasized all through.

Der Goldene Schnitt

Der Goldene Schnitt tritt seit der Antike in vielen Bereichen der Geometrie, Architektur, Musik, Kunst sowie der Philosophie auf, aber er erscheint auch in neueren Gebieten der Technik und der Fraktale. Dabei ist der Goldene Schnitt kein isoliertes Phänomen, sondern in vielen Fällen das erste und somit einfachste nichttriviale Beispiel im Rahmen weiterführender Verallgemeinerungen.

Complex Manifolds and Hyperbolic Geometry: II Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry, January 4-9, 2001, Cimat, Guanajuato, Mexico

This quantity derives from the second one Iberoamerican Congress on Geometry, held in 2001 in Mexico on the Centro de Investigacion en Matematicas A. C. , an the world over well-known application of analysis in natural arithmetic. The convention issues have been selected with an eye fixed towards the presentation of recent equipment, fresh effects, and the construction of extra interconnections among different examine teams operating in advanced manifolds and hyperbolic geometry.

An oriented line can be characterized by its direction, an angle ϕ, and its signed distance p from the origin O (the sign of p is that of the frame that consists of the orthogonal vector from the origin to the line and the direction vector of the line). Thus N is a cylinder with coordinates (ϕ, p). 3. Describe the space of non-oriented lines in the plane. 4. Let O′ = O + (a, b) be a different choice of the origin. 1) ϕ′ = ϕ, p′ = p − a sin ϕ + b cos ϕ. The space of lines N has an area form Ω = dϕ ∧ dp.

For a smooth curve γ : [a, b] → M , its Finsler length is given by b L(γ) = L(γ(t), γ ′ (t)) dt. a Due to homogeneity of L, this integral does not depend on the parameterization. 19. Compute the Lagrangian functions for the projective metrics of positive and negative constant curvatures in the plane. 3). Let f (p, ϕ) be a positive continuous function on the space of oriented lines, even with respect to the orientation reversion of a line: f (−p, ϕ + π) = f (p, ϕ). Then one has a new area form: Ωf = f (p, ϕ) dϕ ∧ dp.

3. Square grid partitioned into ladders orbit T i (0), i = 0, . . , n. Since T is an irrational rotation, all these points are distinct and there are n + 1 of them. To describe the initial n-segments of the cutting sequences, start with the line through the origin (0, 0) and parallel translate it along the diagonal of the unit square toward point (−1, 1). The n-segments of the cutting sequence change when the line passes through a vertex of one of the first n ladders. As we have seen, there are n + 1 such events, and hence p(n) = n + 1.
