This graduate-level monographic textbook treats utilized differential geometry from a contemporary clinical viewpoint. Co-authored through the originator of the world's prime human movement simulator - "Human Biodynamics Engine", a fancy, 264-mechanical process, modeled by way of differential-geometric instruments - this is often the 1st e-book that mixes glossy differential geometry with a large spectrum of functions, from glossy mechanics and physics, through nonlinear keep an eye on, to biology and human sciences. The booklet is designed for a two-semester path, which supplies mathematicians a number of purposes for his or her thought and physicists, in addition to different scientists and engineers, a robust conception underlying their types.

Lectures on Symplectic Geometry

The objective of those notes is to supply a quick creation to symplectic geometry for graduate scholars with a few wisdom of differential geometry, de Rham idea and classical Lie teams. this article addresses symplectomorphisms, neighborhood varieties, touch manifolds, appropriate nearly advanced constructions, Kaehler manifolds, hamiltonian mechanics, second maps, symplectic relief and symplectic toric manifolds.

Geometry and Physics

"Geometry and Physics" addresses mathematicians desirous to comprehend glossy physics, and physicists eager to examine geometry. It provides an advent to trendy quantum box thought and similar components of theoretical high-energy physics from the point of view of Riemannian geometry, and an creation to fashionable geometry as wanted and used in sleek physics.

Lectures on the geometry of manifolds

An creation to the idea of partially-ordered units, or "posets". The textual content is gifted in particularly a casual demeanour, with examples and computations, which depend on the Hasse diagram to construct graphical instinct for the constitution of endless posets. The proofs of a small variety of theorems is incorporated within the appendix.

Differential Geometry and Topology, Discrete and Computational Geometry

The purpose of this quantity is to offer an advent and evaluate to differential topology, differential geometry and computational geometry with an emphasis on a few interconnections among those 3 domain names of arithmetic. The chapters supply the heritage required to start learn in those fields or at their interfaces.

This structure is preserved by homeomorphisms (invertible maps that are continuous in both directions). In the case of a differentiable manifold, a set of charts called an atlas allows us to do calculus on manifolds. Polar coordinates, for example, form a chart for the plane R2 minus the positive x−axis and the origin. Another example of a chart is the map χtop mentioned above, a chart for the circle.
