Classical differential geometry is the approach to geometry that takes full
advantage of the introduction of numerical coordinates into a geometric
space. This use of coordinates in geometry was the essential insight of Rene
Descartes that allowed the invention of analytic geometry and paved the way
for modern differential geometry. The basic object in differential geometry
(and differential topology) is the smooth manifold. This is a topological
space on which a sufficiently nice family of coordinate systems or "charts"
The book before the reader is devoted to an exposition of results of investigations
carried out mainly over the last 10-15 years concerning certain
questions in the theory of quasiconformal mappings.
The principal objects of investigation-mappings with bounded distortion-
are a kind of n-space analogue of holomorphic functions. As is
known, every holomorphic function is characterized geometrically by the
fact that the niapping of a planar domain it implements is conformal. In
the n-space case the condition of conformality singles out a very narrow
class of mappings.
You can teach a course that will give their students exposure to linear algebra. In their first brush with the topic, your students can work with the Euclidean space and the matrix. In contrast, this course will emphasize the abstract vector spaces and linear maps. Bold title of this book deserves an explanation. Almost all linear algebra books use determinants to prove that each linear op-erator on a finite dimensional vector space has a complex eigenvalue.
Since the publication of my book Mathematical Statistics (Shao, 2003), I
have been asked many times for a solution manual to the exercises in my
book. Without doubt, exercises form an important part of a textbook
on mathematical statistics, not only in training students for their research
ability in mathematical statistics but also in presenting many additional
results as complementary material to the main text.
Chapter 12 Random Walks
12.1 Random Walks in Euclidean Space
In the last several chapters, we have studied sums of random variables with the goal being to describe the distribution and density functions of the sum. In this chapter, we shall look at sums of discrete random variables from a diﬀerent perspective.
For each k ∈ Z, we construct a uniformly contractible metric on Euclidean space which is not mod k hypereuclidean. We also construct a pair of uniformly contractible Riemannian metrics on Rn , n ≥ 11, so that the resulting manifolds Z and Z are bounded homotopy equivalent by a homotopy equivalence which is not boundedly close to a homeomorphism. We show that for these lf spaces the C ∗ -algebra assembly map K∗ (Z) → K∗ (C ∗ (Z)) from locally ﬁnite K-homology to the K-theory of the bounded propagation algebra is not a monomorphism ...
We introduce a class of metric spaces which we call “bolic”. They include hyperbolic spaces, simply connected complete manifolds of nonpositive curvature, euclidean buildings, etc. We prove the Novikov conjecture on higher signatures for any discrete group which admits a proper isometric action on a “bolic”, weakly geodesic metric space of bounded geometry. 1. Introduction This work has grown out of an attempt to give a purely KK-theoretic proof of a result of A. Connes and H. Moscovici ([CM], [CGM]) that hyperbolic groups satisfy the Novikov conjecture. ...
We identify the symmetry algebra of the Laplacian on Euclidean space as an explicit quotient of the universal enveloping algebra of the Lie algebra of conformal motions. We construct analogues of these symmetries on a general conformal manifold. 1. Introduction The space of smooth ﬁrst order linear diﬀerential operators on Rn that preserve harmonic functions is closed under Lie bracket. For n ≥ 3, it is ﬁnitedimensional (of dimension (n2 + 3n + 4)/2). Its commutator subalgebra is isomorphic to so(n + 1, 1), the Lie algebra of conformal motions of Rn .
We prove that the classical Oka property of a complex manifold Y, concerning the existence and homotopy classiﬁcation of holomorphic mappings from Stein manifolds to Y, is equivalent to a Runge approximation property for holomorphic maps from compact convex sets in Euclidean spaces to Y . Introduction Motivated by the seminal works of Oka  and Grauert (, , ) we say that a complex manifold Y enjoys the Oka property if for every Stein manifold X, every compact O(X)-convex subset K of X and every continuous map f0 : X → Y which is holomorphic in an...

This book is devoted to the rst acquaintance with the dierential geometry
Therefore it begins with the theory of curves in three-dimensional Euclidean spac
E. Then the vectorial analysis in E is stated both in Cartesian and curvilinea
coordinates, afterward the theory of surfaces in the space E is considered.
The newly fashionable approach starting with the concept of a dierentiabl
manifold, to my opinion, is not suitable for the introduction to the subject.
