Download E-books Metric Foliations and Curvature (Progress in Mathematics) PDF

By Detlef Gromoll

Riemannian manifolds, relatively people with confident or nonnegative curvature, are made out of just a handful through metric fibrations or deformations thereof. this article records a few of these structures, a lot of that have in simple terms seemed in magazine shape. The emphasis is much less at the fibration itself and extra on tips to use it to both build or comprehend a metric with curvature of fastened join up a given space.

Variational Problems in Differential Geometry (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series, Vol. 394)

The sector of geometric variational difficulties is fast-moving and influential. those difficulties have interaction with many different parts of arithmetic and feature powerful relevance to the examine of integrable structures, mathematical physics and PDEs. The workshop 'Variational difficulties in Differential Geometry' held in 2009 on the college of Leeds introduced jointly across the world revered researchers from many various components of the sector.

Lie Algebras, Geometry, and Toda-Type Systems (Cambridge Lecture Notes in Physics)

Dedicated to a massive and well known department of recent theoretical and mathematical physics, this publication introduces using Lie algebra and differential geometry the right way to learn nonlinear integrable structures of Toda kind. Many not easy difficulties in theoretical physics are regarding the answer of nonlinear platforms of partial differential equations.
