Beautiful Geometry by Eli Maor, Eugen Jost

By Eli Maor, Eugen Jost

If you've ever idea that arithmetic and artwork don't combine, this gorgeous visible heritage of geometry will swap your brain. As a lot a piece of paintings as a booklet approximately arithmetic, Beautiful Geometry provides greater than sixty beautiful colour plates illustrating a variety of geometric styles and theorems, observed via short debts of the attention-grabbing heritage and other people in the back of every one. With art by means of Swiss artist Eugen Jost and textual content via acclaimed math historian Eli Maor, this designated occasion of geometry covers a number of matters, from straightedge-and-compass buildings to fascinating configurations regarding infinity. the result's a pleasant and informative illustrated travel during the 2,500-year-old background of 1 of an important and gorgeous branches of arithmetic.

Geometry of Complex Numbers (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Illuminating, generally praised e-book on analytic geometry of circles, the Moebius transformation, and 2-dimensional non-Euclidean geometries. "This ebook can be in each library, and each professional in classical functionality conception could be acquainted with this fabric. the writer has played a different carrier via making this fabric so comfortably obtainable in one publication.

Geometric Tomography (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Geometric tomography offers with the retrieval of knowledge a couple of geometric item from facts relating its projections (shadows) on planes or cross-sections by way of planes. it's a geometric relative of automatic tomography, which reconstructs a picture from X-rays of a human sufferer. the topic overlaps with convex geometry and employs many instruments from that sector, together with a few formulation from imperative geometry.

First Steps in Differential Geometry: Riemannian, Contact, Symplectic (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

Differential geometry arguably deals the smoothest transition from the traditional collage arithmetic series of the 1st 4 semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the better degrees of abstraction and facts encountered on the higher department by means of arithmetic majors. at the present time it really is attainable to explain differential geometry as "the examine of constructions at the tangent space," and this article develops this viewpoint.

Denoting the evolution maps corresponding to Fµ , and F˜µ , by µ , respectively ˜ µ , whenever µ ({x} × [0, t]) ⊂ U , the homeomorphism H , or the homeomorphisms H1 and h, satisfy: ˜ h(µ) (H1 (x, µ), t) = H1 ( µ (x, t), µ). A homeomorphisms like H in the above theorem is called a local topological conjugacy between the (parametrized) flows defined by Fµ and F˜µ . Preliminaries of dynamical systems theory 33 Fig. 2. Hopf bifurcation in the positive case: dynamics for µ < 0, µ = 0, respectively µ > 0.

E. homeomorphisms. In this case we have indeed something like ‘local structural stability’ at hyperbolic stationary points. 1. This is the reason that we mainly consider C 0 conjugacies, also called topological conjugacies. As already mentioned before (see the discussion on the Hopf bifurcation), a conjugacy maps periodic evolutions to periodic evolutions with exactly the same period. In the case when the time set is R, the period can be any (positive) real number. Such a period can be changed by a perturbation which is arbitrarily small in the C k sense.
