By C. E. Weatherburn

Initially released in 1930, because the moment of a two-part set, this informative and systematically prepared textbook, essentially geared toward college scholars, encompasses a vectorial remedy of geometry, reasoning that via such vector tools, geometry is ready to be either simplified and condensed. themes lined contain Flexion and Applicability of Surfaces, Levi-Civita's thought of parallel displacements on a floor and the speculation of Curvilinear Congruences. Diagrams are incorporated to complement the textual content. supplying a close review of the topic and forming an excellent starting place for examine of multidimensional differential geometry and the tensor calculus, this booklet will turn out a useful reference paintings to students of arithmetic in addition to to an individual with an curiosity within the heritage of schooling.

The Knot Book

Knots are typical gadgets. We use them to moor our boats, to wrap our applications, to tie our footwear. but the mathematical idea of knots speedy results in deep ends up in topology and geometry. "The Knot Book" is an advent to this wealthy thought, beginning with our popular figuring out of knots and a little bit collage algebra and completing with fascinating issues of present examine.

Elementary Topology and Applications

The cloth during this ebook is geared up in one of these approach that the reader will get to major functions speedy, and the emphasis is at the geometric knowing and use of recent thoughts. The subject matter of the e-book is that topology is admittedly the language of recent arithmetic.

Three-Dimensional Geometry and Topology

This publication develops a few of the awesome richness, good looks, and gear of geometry in and 3 dimensions, and the powerful connection of geometry with topology. Hyperbolic geometry is the superstar. a powerful attempt has been made to show not only denatured formal reasoning (definitions, theorems, and proofs), yet a dwelling feeling for the topic.

Simplicial Structures in Topology

Simplicial constructions in Topology offers a transparent and finished creation to the topic. rules are constructed within the first 4 chapters. The 5th bankruptcy reviews closed surfaces and offers their type. The final bankruptcy of the ebook is dedicated to homotopy teams, that are utilized in a brief creation on obstruction concept.
