Geometry of Complex Numbers (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Illuminating, greatly praised publication on analytic geometry of circles, the Moebius transformation, and 2-dimensional non-Euclidean geometries. "This ebook will be in each library, and each specialist in classical functionality concept will be conversant in this fabric. the writer has played a unique provider through making this fabric so comfortably obtainable in one publication.

Geometric Tomography (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Geometric tomography bargains with the retrieval of knowledge a few geometric item from facts referring to its projections (shadows) on planes or cross-sections via 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 necessary geometry.

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

Differential geometry arguably bargains the smoothest transition from the normal college arithmetic series of the 1st 4 semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the better degrees of abstraction and evidence encountered on the higher department by means of arithmetic majors. this day it really is attainable to explain differential geometry as "the research of constructions at the tangent space," and this article develops this viewpoint.

Note that in [20], Bochner–K¨ahler metrics have been locally classified. In this terminology, the Bochner–K¨ahler metrics in the above theorem are called Bochner– K¨ahler metrics of type I.
