Confoliations by
Yakov M Eliashberg(
)
16 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents the first steps of a theory of confoliations designed to link geometry and topology of threedimensional contact structures with the geometry and topology of codimensionone foliations on threedimensional manifolds. Developing almost independently, these theories at first glance belonged to two different worlds: The theory of foliations is part of topology and dynamical systems, while contact geometry is the odddimensional ""brother"" of symplectic geometry. However, both theories have developed a number of striking similarities. Confoliationswhich interpolate between co

Characteristic forms by
ShiingShen Chern(

)
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Starting with the notion of StiefelWhitney classes, Chern moves on to the case of a complex vector bundle and the definition of a characteristic form. These concepts lead to the definition of the celebrated ChernSimons forms and a certain global conformal invariant that has proven to be extremely useful in physics

Short encodings of evolving structures by
D. D. K Sleator(
Book
)
4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We show for example that [omega](n log n) applications of the associative and commutative laws are required in the worst case to transform an nvariable expression over a binary associative, commutative operation into some other equivalent expression. Similarly, we show that [omega](n log n) 'diagonal flips' are required in the worst case to transform one nvertex numbered triangulated planar graph into some other one. Both of these lower bounds have matching upper bounds. An O(n log n) upper bound for associative, commutative operations was known previously, whereas we obtain here an O(n log n) upper bound for diagonal flips."

Fundamentals of hyperbolic geometry : selected expositions(
)
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents reissued articles from two classic sources on hyperbolic manifolds. Part I is an exposition of Chapters 8 and 9 of Thurston's pioneering Princeton Notes; there is a new introduction describing recent advances, with an uptodate bibliography, giving a contemporary context in which the work can be set. Part II expounds the theory of convex hull boundaries and their bending laminations. A new appendix describes recent work. Part III is Thurston's famous paper that presents the notion of earthquakes in hyperbolic geometry and proves the earthquake theorem. The final part introduces the theory of measures on the limit set, drawing attention to related ergodic theory and the exponent of convergence. The book will be welcomed by graduate students and professional mathematicians who want a rigorous introduction to some basic tools essential for the modern theory of hyperbolic manifolds
