The geometry of the generalized Gauss map by David A Hoffman( Book )

9 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is devoted primarily to the study of properties of the Grassmannian of oriented 2-planes in [double-struck capital]ℝ[superscript]n and to applications of these properties to understanding minimal surfaces in [double-struck capital]ℝ[superscript]n via the generalized Gauss map. The extrinsic geometry of the Grassmannian, when considered as a submanifold of [double-struck capital]ℂP[superscript]n-², is investigated, with special emphasis on the nature of the intersection of the Grassmannian with linear subspaces of [double-struck capital]ℂP[superscript]n-¹. These results are the basis for a discussion of minimal surfaces that are degenerate in various ways; understanding the different types of degeneracy and their interrelations is a critical step toward obtaining a clear picture of the basic geometric properties of minimal surfaces in [double-struck capital]ℝ[superscript]n
Geometric analysis and computer graphics : proceedings of a workshop held May 23-25, 1988 by Paul Concus( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The meeting at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley was structured around principal lectures given by Almgren, Callahan, Ericksen, Francis, Gulliver, Hanrahan, Kajiya, Polthier, Sethian, Sterling, Thomas, and Vogel. The divergent backgrounds of these and the many other participants, as reflected in their lectures at the meeting and in the papers presented here, testify to the unifying element of the workshop's central theme. The depth and range of the new developments presented in the lectures point to scientific and technological frontiers being crossed with impressive speed. The present volume is offered as a permanent record for those who were present, and also with a view towards making the material available to a wider audience than were able to attend
Global theory of minimal surfaces : proceedings of the Clay Mathematics Institute 2001 Summer School, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California, June 25-July 27, 2001 by Clay Mathematics Institute( Book )

Mathematics in Arcadia : Tom Stoppard in conversation with Robert Osserman by Tom Stoppard( Visual )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dialogue between the mathematician Robert Osserman and the playwright Tom Stoppard commenting on Stoppard's play Arcadia. The plot of the stageplay revolves around the philosophical inquiries of a young woman and her tutor concerning the nature of mathematics, specifically Fermat's last theorem, and the investigations of two other scholars into the proofs for the theorem
