Download Cartesian Currents in the Calculus of Variations I: by Mariano Giaquinta PDF

By Mariano Giaquinta

This monograph (in volumes) offers with non scalar variational difficulties coming up in geometry, as harmonic mappings among Riemannian manifolds and minimum graphs, and in physics, as solid equilibrium configuations in nonlinear elasticity or for liquid crystals. The presentation is selfcontained and available to non experts. themes are handled so far as attainable in an easy method, illustrating effects with basic examples; in precept, chapters or even sections are readable independently of the final context, in order that elements could be simply used for graduate classes. Open questions are usually pointed out and the ultimate element of each one bankruptcy discusses references to the literature and occasionally supplementary effects. eventually, a close desk of Contents and an in depth Index are of support to refer to this monograph

Geometry of Banach spaces. Proc. conf. Strobl, 1989

This quantity displays the growth made in lots of branches of modern learn in Banach area thought, an analytic method of geometry. together with papers via lots of the major figures within the sector, it really is meant to demonstrate the interaction of Banach area idea with harmonic research, chance, advanced functionality idea, and finite dimensional convexity thought.

Comparison Theorems in Riemannian Geometry

The vital topic of this publication is the interplay among the curvature of an entire Riemannian manifold and its topology and international geometry. the 1st 5 chapters are preparatory in nature. they start with a really concise advent to Riemannian geometry, through an exposition of Toponogov's theorem--the first such therapy in a booklet in English.

Space, Time and Geometry

The articles during this quantity were inspired in other ways. greater than years in the past the editor of Synthese, laakko Hintikka, an­ nounced a unique factor dedicated to area and time, and articles have been solicited. a part of the cause of that statement was once additionally the second one resource of papers. a number of years in the past I gave a seminar on exact relativity at Stanford, and the papers through Domotor, Harrison, Hudgin, Latzer and myself in part arose out of debate in that seminar.

Geometry of Cauchy-Riemann Submanifolds

This ebook gathers contributions by means of revered specialists at the concept of isometric immersions among Riemannian manifolds, and specializes in the geometry of CR constructions on submanifolds in Hermitian manifolds. CR constructions are a package deal theoretic recast of the tangential Cauchy–Riemann equations in complicated research related to a number of advanced variables.

E. point of A. This in fact depends upon the rectifiability of A, compare Theorem 5 in Sec. 4 Remark 1. Consider the measures 1-tk and 7{1, k _< n, in R n. Although they can be very different, it is easily seen that 7dk (A) = 0 if and only if Hk 00 (A) = 0. e. x E E, and one can show that, if Q, Qv v = 1, 2.... are compact se and if every open set A D Q contains Q for v sufficiently large, then 7{k (Q) > lim sup 7{1 (Qv) . v-oo Notice that the last inequality is in general false for the Hausdorff measure 7-Ck.

E. in X 1. e. x E X and we may take Z = {x E X I Dµv(x) = +oo} . (iv) of Theorem 3 hold if X = Rn. The proof of Theorem 3 is based on the following lemma whose proof uses in turn Vitali's property. In view of Theorem 2 (ii), the claims (i) Lemma 3. Let A be any subset of X. (i) If Dµv(x) < a in A, then v(A) < ay(A) (ii) If D,,v(x) > a in A, then v(A) > ap(A) A simple consequence of Theorem 3 is the following theorem to which we shall return in Sec. 1. Theorem 4 (Lebesgue-Besicovitch's differentiation theorem).
