Equations of curvature

This fourth volume of the Mathematical Papers of Sir William Rowan Hamilton completes the project begun, in 1925, by the instigators and ®rst Editors: Arthur William Conway (1875±1950) and John Lighton Synge (1897±1995). It contains Hamilton's published papers on geometry, analysis, astronomy, probability and ®nite differences, and a miscellany of publications including several addresses.

Given a compact four dimensional manifold, we prove existence of conformal metrics with constant Qcurvature under generic assumptions. The problem amounts to solving a fourthorder nonlinear elliptic equation with variational structure. Since the corresponding Euler functional is in general unbounded from above and from below, we employ topological methods and minmax schemes, jointly with the compactness result of [35]. 1.

This paper considers a trapped characteristic initial value problem for the spherically symmetric EinsteinMaxwellscalar ﬁeld equations. For an open set of initial data whose closure contains in particular ReissnerNordstr¨m data, o the future boundary of the maximal domain of development is found to be a lightlike surface along which the curvature blows up, and yet the metric can be continuously extended beyond it. This result is related to the strong cosmic censorship conjecture of Roger Penrose. ...

For the complex parabolic GinzburgLandau equation, we prove that, asymptotically, vorticity evolves according to motion by mean curvature in Brakke’s weak formulation. The only assumption is a natural energy bound on the initial data. In some cases, we also prove convergence to enhanced motion in the sense of Ilmanen. Introduction In this paper we study the asymptotic analysis, as the parameter ε goes to zero, of the complexvalued parabolic GinzburgLandau equation for functions uε :

In this paper, we prove global second derivative estimates for solutions of the Dirichlet problem for the MongeAmp`re equation when the inhomogee neous term is only assumed to be H¨lder continuous. As a consequence of our o approach, we also establish the existence and uniqueness of globally smooth solutions to the second boundary value problem for the aﬃne maximal surface equation and aﬃne mean curvature equation.

Average depth model has a variety of applications in hydraulic engineering, especially in applications that flow depth is much smaller than the width of the flow. In this method the vertical variation is negligible and the hydraulic variables average integrated from channel bed to the surface free for the vertical axis. in equations arising management, pure hydrostatic pressure is assumed that not really valid in the case of flow in the bed is curved and can not be described curvature effects of the bed.

This book is based on lectures delivered over the years by the author at the Universit´e Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, at the University of Stuttgart, and at City University of Hong Kong. Its twofold aim is to give thorough introductions to the basic theorems of differential geometry and to elasticity theory in curvilinear coordinates. The treatment is essentially selfcontained and proofs are complete.

Next, a few words about our strategy. It is well recognized now that one has to go beyond the EinsteinHilbert action for gravity, both from the experimental viewpoint (eg.,because of Dark Energy) and from the theoretical viewpoint (eg., because of the UV incompleteness of quantized Einstein gravity, and the need of its uniﬁcation with the Standard Model of Elementary Particles). In our approach, the origin of inﬂation is purely geometrical, ie. is closely related to spacetime and gravity.

These lectures intend to give a selfcontained exposure of some techniques for computing the evolution of plane curves. The motions of interest are the socalled motions by curvature. They mean that, at any instant, each point of the curve moves with a normal velocity equal to a function of the curvature at this point. This kind of evolution is of some interest in differential geometry, for instance in the problem of minimal surfaces.

This work develops the geometry and dynamics of mechanical systems with nonholonomic constraints and symmetry from the perspective of Lagrangian me chanics and with a view to controltheoretical applications. The basic methodology is that of geometric mechanics applied to the Lagranged’Alembert formulation, generalizing the use of connections and momentum maps associated with a given symmetry group to this case.
