A.D. Alexandrov's contribution to the sphere of intrinsic geometry was once unique and extremely influential. this article is a vintage that continues to be unsurpassed in its readability and scope. It offers his center fabric, initially released in Russian in 1948, starting wth an overview of the most recommendations after which exploring different themes, equivalent to common propositions on an intrinsic metric; angles and curvature; lifestyles of a convex polyhedron with prescribed metric; curves on convex surfaces; and the function of particular curvature. this article offers Adefinitive resource for the improvement of intrinsic geometry and is quintessential for graduate scholars who desire a larger realizing of this subject.

Multiplicative invariant idea, as a learn zone in its personal correct in the wider spectrum of invariant conception, is of rather fresh classic. the current textual content deals a coherent account of the elemental effects completed up to now. .Multiplicative invariant idea is in detail tied to fundamental representations of finite teams.
The 400-year-old Kepler conjecture asserts that no packing of congruent balls in 3 dimensions could have a density exceeding the time-honored pyramid-shaped cannonball association. during this e-book, a brand new facts of the conjecture is gifted that makes it available for the 1st time to a extensive mathematical viewers.
The geometry of the hyperbolic aircraft has been an energetic and engaging box of mathematical inquiry for many of the earlier centuries. This ebook offers a self-contained advent to the topic, offering the reader with an organization grab of the strategies and strategies of this gorgeous region of arithmetic.
Accumulating and updating effects scattered in magazine articles over thirty years, this self-contained monograph provides a finished creation to the topic. Its objective is to: - inspire and clarify the strategy for common Lie teams, lowering the facts of deep ends up in invariant research to the verification of 2 formal Lie bracket identities on the topic of the Campbell-Hausdorff formulation (the "Kashiwara-Vergne conjecture"); - supply a close facts of the conjecture for quadratic and solvable Lie algebras, that is quite straight forward; - expand the tactic to symmetric areas; the following an obstruction looks, embodied in one extraordinary item known as an "e-function"; - clarify the position of this functionality in invariant research on symmetric areas, its relation to invariant differential operators, suggest price operators and round services; - supply an specific e-function for rank one areas (the hyperbolic spaces); - build an e-function for normal symmetric areas, within the spirit of Kashiwara and Vergne's unique paintings for Lie teams.
