A Treatise on the Differential Geometry of Curves and by Luther Pfahler Eisenhart

By Luther Pfahler Eisenhart

Created in particular for graduate scholars, this introductory treatise on differential geometry has been a hugely profitable textbook for a few years. Its strangely exact and urban method encompasses a thorough clarification of the geometry of curves and surfaces, focusing on difficulties that would be such a lot precious to scholars. 1909 edition.

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

Gauss's idea of surfaces is without doubt one of the only mathematical achievements encouraged by means of rules that arose in reference to surveys of the outside of the earth. lengthy considered as a masterpiece in content material and shape, this paintings positive aspects one of many author's most unique 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 vital invariants for numerous mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and useful research to quantity thought and algebraic geometry. As is often encountered, this robust mathematical item is particularly tough to calculate. except Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few whole calculations have been to be had sooner than the invention of homological invariants provided through motivic cohomology and topological cyclic homology.

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

This booklet bargains with fractals in knowing difficulties encountered in earth technology, and their options. It starts off with an research of 2 sessions of tools (homogeneous fractals random types, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) greatly subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, specifically for learning power fields and their similar resource distributions.
