This publication intends to offer an advent to harmonic maps among a floor and a symmetric manifold and incessant suggest curvature surfaces as thoroughly integrable platforms. The presentation is on the market to undergraduate and graduate scholars in arithmetic yet can also be priceless to researchers. it really is one of the first textbooks approximately integrable platforms, their interaction with harmonic maps and using loop teams, and it offers the idea, for the 1st time, from the viewpoint of a differential geometer. crucial effects are uncovered with whole proofs (except for the final chapters, which require a minimum wisdom from the reader). a few proofs were thoroughly rewritten with the target, particularly, to explain the relation among finite suggest curvature tori, Wente tori and the loop workforce technique - a side mostly missed within the literature. The ebook is helping the reader to entry the guidelines of the speculation and to obtain a unified viewpoint of the topic.

Lectures on Symplectic Geometry

The target of those notes is to supply a quick advent to symplectic geometry for graduate scholars with a few wisdom of differential geometry, de Rham thought and classical Lie teams. this article addresses symplectomorphisms, neighborhood kinds, touch manifolds, suitable nearly complicated buildings, Kaehler manifolds, hamiltonian mechanics, second maps, symplectic relief and symplectic toric manifolds.

Geometry and Physics

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

Lectures on the geometry of manifolds

An creation to the idea of partially-ordered units, or "posets". The textual content is gifted in fairly an off-the-cuff demeanour, with examples and computations, which depend on the Hasse diagram to construct graphical instinct for the constitution of limitless 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 provide an creation and evaluation to differential topology, differential geometry and computational geometry with an emphasis on a few interconnections among those 3 domain names of arithmetic. The chapters provide the heritage required to start examine in those fields or at their interfaces.

Thus u is weakly conformal. 1 Any harmonic map u: S2 -+ N is weakly conformal. Using this we can prove the following. 4. 1 Any harmonic map u: S2 -+S2 is either i) constant, or ii) holomorphic, or iii) antiholomorphic. The proof of this Corollary uses the following lemma. We prove both results in the appendix, at the end of the chapter. 1 Let U, V C C be two open subsets of C and u: U - V a weakly conformal function of class C2. If U is connected, then u is either a constant, or holomorphic, or antiholomorphic.

There is no simple formula similar to Weierstrass representation for this case. However, the following may be done instead. Replacing (a - ib) by A-2(a - ib) means replacing f by A-2f. Keeping H and w fixed, this gives rise to a deformation & of A. But... 3, since we have not changed If 1. Hence also in this case we can find a conjugate family of CMC immersion, coming from this A,,. However, the Gauss map needn't stay the same. This is a result due to 0. Bonnet [18]. We are going to look at this construction a little more closely.
