Geometric algebra is a strong mathematical language with functions throughout a number of matters in physics and engineering. This e-book is an entire advisor to the present kingdom of the topic with early chapters offering a self-contained creation to geometric algebra. subject matters coated comprise new thoughts for dealing with rotations in arbitrary dimensions, and the hyperlinks among rotations, bivectors and the constitution of the Lie teams.
The learn of triangulations of topological areas has regularly been on the root of geometric topology. one of the such a lot studied triangulations are piecewise linear triangulations of high-dimensional topological manifolds. Their research culminated within the past due 1960s–early Seventies in an entire class within the paintings of Kirby and Siebenmann.
Hyperbolic geometry is a classical topic in natural arithmetic which has intriguing functions in theoretical physics. during this ebook best specialists introduce hyperbolic geometry and Maass waveforms and talk about purposes in quantum chaos and cosmology. The e-book starts with an introductory bankruptcy detailing the geometry of hyperbolic surfaces and contains quite a few labored examples and workouts to offer the reader a pretty good beginning for the remainder of the booklet.
