A.D. Alexandrov: Intrinsic Geometry of Convex Surfaces: by S.S. Kutateladze

By S.S. Kutateladze

A.D. Alexandrov's contribution to the sector of intrinsic geometry used to be unique and intensely influential. this article is a vintage that is still unsurpassed in its readability and scope. It provides his center fabric, initially released in Russian in 1948, starting wth an summary of the most thoughts after which exploring different themes, resembling basic propositions on an intrinsic metric; angles and curvature; life of a convex polyhedron with prescribed metric; curves on convex surfaces; and the position of particular curvature. this article presents Adefinitive resource for the advance of intrinsic geometry and is vital for graduate scholars who need a greater figuring out of this subject.

General Investigations of Curved Surfaces: Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Peter Pesic (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Gauss's conception of surfaces is likely one of the in basic terms mathematical achievements encouraged by means of principles that arose in reference to surveys of the outside of the earth. lengthy considered as a masterpiece in content material and shape, this paintings gains one of many author's most unusual contributions to mathematics--the discovery that Gauss termed the "Theorema Egregium.

The Local Structure of Algebraic K-Theory: 18 (Algebra and Applications)

Algebraic K-theory encodes very important invariants for a number of mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and useful research to quantity concept and algebraic geometry. As is usually encountered, this robust mathematical item is especially not easy to calculate. except Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few entire calculations have been on hand ahead of the invention of homological invariants provided via motivic cohomology and topological cyclic homology.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This e-book offers with fractals in knowing difficulties encountered in earth technology, and their strategies. It begins with an research of 2 sessions of equipment (homogeneous fractals random types, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) commonly subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, particularly for learning power fields and their similar resource distributions.
