Download An Introduction to the Theory of Wave Maps and Related by Dan-Andrei Geba,Manoussos G Grillakis PDF

By Dan-Andrei Geba,Manoussos G Grillakis

The wave maps procedure is likely one of the most lovely and tough nonlinear hyperbolic structures, which has captured the eye of mathematicians for greater than thirty years now. within the learn of its a number of matters, reminiscent of the well-posedness concept, the formation of singularities, and the steadiness of the solitons, to be able to receive optimum effects, one has to exploit problematic instruments coming not just from research, but additionally from geometry and topology. furthermore, the wave maps process is not anything except the Euler–Lagrange procedure for the nonlinear sigma version, that is one of many basic difficulties in classical box theory.

One of the ambitions of our booklet is to provide an up to date and virtually self-contained assessment of the most regularity effects proved for wave maps.

Another one is to introduce, to a large mathematical viewers, bodily prompted generalizations of the wave maps approach (e.g., the Skyrme model), that are tremendous attention-grabbing and tough of their personal right.

This impressive consultant provides vital mathematical instruments for various engineering purposes, providing engineers the fundamental thoughts and terminology of contemporary international differential geometry. appropriate for autonomous research in addition to a supplementary textual content for complex undergraduate and graduate classes, this quantity additionally constitutes a priceless reference for keep an eye on, platforms, aeronautical, electric, and mechanical engineers.

Worlds Out of Nothing: A Course in the History of Geometry in the 19th Century (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)

In response to the newest old examine, Worlds Out of not anything is the 1st publication to supply a path at the background of geometry within the nineteenth century. issues lined within the first a part of the publication are projective geometry, particularly the concept that of duality, and non-Euclidean geometry. The publication then strikes directly to the learn of the singular issues of algebraic curves (Plücker’s equations) and their function in resolving a paradox within the idea of duality; to Riemann’s paintings on differential geometry; and to Beltrami’s position in effectively constructing non-Euclidean geometry as a rigorous mathematical topic.

Perlen der Mathematik: 20 geometrische Figuren als Ausgangspunkte für mathematische Erkundungsreisen (German Edition)

Dieses Buch handelt von 20 geometrischen Figuren (Icons), die eine wichtige Rolle bei der Veranschaulichung mathematischer Beweise spielen. Alsina und Nelsen untersuchen die Mathematik, die hinter diesen Figuren steckt und die sich aus ihnen ableiten lässt. Jedem in diesem Buch behandelten Icons ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, in dem sein Alltagsbezug, seine wesentlichen mathematischen Eigenschaften sowie seine Bedeutung für visuelle Beweise vieler mathematischer Sätze betont werden.
