Visual Complex Analysis by Tristan Needham

By Tristan Needham

Now on hand in paperback, this radical first direction on complicated research brings a gorgeous and strong topic to lifestyles via regularly utilizing geometry (not calculation) because the technique of rationalization. even supposing aimed toward the entire newbie, expert mathematicians and physicists also will benefit from the clean insights afforded via this strange strategy.

Geometry of Complex Numbers (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Illuminating, greatly praised ebook on analytic geometry of circles, the Moebius transformation, and 2-dimensional non-Euclidean geometries. "This booklet may be in each library, and each professional in classical functionality concept might be accustomed to this fabric. the writer has played a different provider by way of making this fabric so with ease available in one e-book.

Geometric Tomography (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Geometric tomography offers with the retrieval of data a couple of geometric item from facts referring to 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 region, together with a few formulation from critical geometry.

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

Differential geometry arguably deals the smoothest transition from the normal collage 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 top department by way of arithmetic majors. at the present time it really is attainable to explain differential geometry as "the learn of constructions at the tangent space," and this article develops this standpoint.

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.
