By C. Rogers;W. K. Schief

This e-book describes the amazing connections that exist among the classical differential geometry of surfaces and glossy soliton concept. The authors additionally discover the wide physique of literature from the 19th and early 20th centuries by means of such eminent geometers as Bianchi, Darboux, Bäcklund, and Eisenhart on changes of privileged sessions of surfaces which depart key geometric homes unchanged. well-known among those are Bäcklund-Darboux adjustments with their impressive linked nonlinear superposition rules and value in soliton thought.

Geometry and Symmetry (Dover Books on Advanced Mathematics)

Designed for advanced undergraduate arithmetic or physics classes, this volume focuses on "practical geometry," emphasizing subject matters and strategies of maximal use in all components of arithmetic. topics contain algebraic and combinatoric preliminaries, isometries and similarities, an creation to crystallography, fields and vector areas, affine areas, and projective areas.

Conformal Geometry of Discrete Groups and Manifolds (Degruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This publication offers a scientific account of conformal geometry of n-manifolds, in addition to its Riemannian opposite numbers. A unifying subject matter is their discrete holonomy teams. particularly, hyperbolic manifolds, in size three and better, are addressed. The remedy covers additionally correct topology, algebra (including combinatorial workforce concept and types of staff representations), mathematics concerns, and dynamics.

Mathematizing Space: The Objects of Geometry from Antiquity to the Early Modern Age

This publication collects the papers of the convention held in Berlin, Germany, 27-29 August 2012, on 'Space, Geometry and the mind's eye from Antiquity to the fashionable Age'. The convention was once a joint attempt through the Max Planck Institute for the heritage of technology (Berlin) and the Centro die Ricerca Matematica Ennio De Giorgi (Pisa).

A two-soliton pseudospherical surface. 89). 6. 4 Breathers There exists an important subclass of entrapped periodic two-soliton solutions known as breathers. Here, an analytic expression for the breather solution is obtained via the permutability theorem, and associated pseudospherical surfaces are constructed.

It is readily verified that the lines of curvature y = const are planar and, accordingly, the above pseudospherical surfaces constitute Enneper surfaces. The latter have been studied in detail by Steuerwald [351]. To every rational number d between zero and unity, there corresponds a pseudospherical stationary breather surface which is periodic in the y-parameter.
