• ### Đề tài " Curve shortening and the topology of closed geodesics on surfaces "

We study “ﬂat knot types” of geodesics on compact surfaces M 2 . For every ﬂat knot type and any Riemannian metric g we introduce a Conley index associated with the curve shortening ﬂow on the space of immersed curves on M 2 . We conclude existence of closed geodesics with prescribed ﬂat knot types, provided the associated Conley index is nontrivial. 1. Introduction If M is a surface with a Riemannian metric g then closed geodesics on (M, g) are critical points of the length functional L(γ) = |γ (x)|dx deﬁned on the space of unparametrized C...

• ### Medication Safety for the Elderly: A Guide for Patients and Caregivers

The bones lose calcium and other minerals especially in women after menopause. The trunk becomes shorter as the gel-like cushions or intervertebral disks, between each spine bone (vertebrae) gradually lose fluid and become thinner along with gradual loss of mineral content of vertebrae itself, making each vertebra thinner. As a result, the spinal column becomes curved and compressed (packed together). The foot arches become less pronounced, contributing to a slight loss of height. The arms and legs look longer when compared with the shortened trunk.
