In this study, we derive the equations of a motion model of two smooth homothetic along pole curves submanifolds M and N; the curves are trajectories of instantaneous rotation centers at the contact points of these submanifolds. We comment on the homothetic motions, which assume sliding and rolling. Geometry and freeform architecture H.
The Basic Library List Committee suggests that undergraduate mathematics libraries consider this book for acquisition. For some years now, I, as well as a number of other contributors to this column, have on occasion expressed appreciation to Dover Publications for the service it provides to the mathematical community by re-issuing classic textbooks and making them available to a new generation at an affordable price.
Of late, however, it seems to me based on anecdotal evidence garnered from a highly unscientific survey that not as many departments offer such a course. Yet, there must still be some market for books like this, because several have recently appeared, including a second edition of Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces by Banchoff and Lovett and another book with the same title by Kristopher Tapp.
Most books with titles like this offer similar content. This one is no exception. There are five chapters. The first two cover curves and surfaces, respectively, in three-space and sometimes in the plane. The chapter on curve discusses both the local and for plane curves global theory. This chapter also introduces the first fundamental form, a quadratic form that can be used to compute a lot of information about the surface length and angle, for example.
Chapter 3 introduces the Gauss map and explores its properties and applications. The derivative of the Gauss is not just any ordinary linear mapping; it turns out to be self-adjoint, and many of its algebraic features eigenvalues, determinant, etc. This chapter explores these, introduces the second fundamental form, and ends with a few optional sections in which, among other things, ruled surfaces and minimal surfaces are discussed.
The intrinsic geometry of a surface is addressed in the next chapter. Intrinsic properties of a surface are those that depend only on the surface itself and do not depend on the way it is situated in the ambient Euclidean space. Another way to put this is that intrinsic geometry explores concepts that can be determined from an understanding of the first fundamental form.
The final chapter of the book is on global differential geometry, both of the surface and curves in three-space. This chapter has a topological flavor, but the topological prerequisites connectedness and compactness in Euclidean spaces are largely summarized in an appendix to the chapter. As the above summary of the contents of this book should make clear, there is a lot of material covered in this text, far more than can be covered in a single semester.
There is probably enough for two semesters, in fact, assuming that there are universities that offer two full semesters of differential geometry as part of their course offerings. One topic that is not covered in the text is differential forms.
In choosing to omit this topic, the author has aligned himself with the vast majority of other undergraduate differential geometry textbook authors. The tables of contents in both editions are substantially identical, differing only in page numbers; the new edition is about ten pages longer than the first.
As far as correction of errors go, there were apparently a number of them in the first edition; Bjorn Poonen has posted a seven-page, single-spaced errata.
Current errors range from minor typos e. What about constant functions? Unfortunately, the bibliography of the first edition has hardly been changed at all for the second. There is actually a redundancy now in the references, since item 22 references all five volumes and item 12 references the first.
There have been a lot of books and articles written on this subject in the last 40 years, and it seems like a missed opportunity not to mention some of them. The failure to mention up-to-date literature exists in the body of the text as well; the author gives as a reference, for anybody wanting to pursue the subject of minimal surfaces, the book A Survey of Minimal Surfaces by Osserman, but does not mention that that edition is no longer in print, but a revised edition was published, also by Dover, in Finally, in defining the torsion of a curve, the author uses a sign convention that, though used by some other authors, is, I think, not the most common used one.
Moreover, there are occasional moments of sloppiness. In fact, I do. It is, in general, clearly, albeit fairly concisely, written, and there are many examples and figures. There are a large selection of exercises of various degrees of difficulty, some but not all of which are given hints or solutions in the back of the book.
The original edition enjoyed widespread use, for decades, as an undergraduate text, and many professional mathematicians learned differential geometry from this book. However, this book was written 40 years ago, at a time when college textbooks were somewhat more demanding of the reader than they tend to be now. And, of course, this book now faces stiffer competition than it did in It also has an excellent chapter discussing the transition from the classical to the modern theory.
For all the reasons expressed above, I would not say that this is the best book available from which to learn this material. Nevertheless, it remains a valuable book, one that can be honestly described as a classic text in the area. Like all classics, it is certainly worth owning, especially given that it is currently selling on amazon.
I will therefore end this review as I began it: thank you, Dover Publications. Mark Hunacek mhunacek iastate. Skip to main content. Search form Search. Login Join Give Shops. Halmos - Lester R.

Why Hr is the Jacobian of this coordinate change? Thank you for your explanations. The surfaces obtained are negatively curved, but not of constant negative curvature.
The book presents standard material about curves and surfaces, together with accurate interesting pictures, Mathematica instructions for making the pic- tures and Mathematica programs for computing functions such as curvature and torsion. Although Curves and Surfaces makes use of Mathematica, the book should also be useful for those with no access to Mathematica.
- Du hast einen Ring. У вас есть кольцо. - Проваливайте! - зарычал немец и начал закрывать дверь. Беккер не раздумывая просунул ногу в щель и открыл дверь. Но сразу же об этом пожалел.
Он спрятал свой ключ, зашифровав его формулой, содержащейся в этом ключе. - А что за файл в ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ? - спросила Сьюзан. - Я, как и все прочие, скачал его с сайта Танкадо в Интернете. АНБ является счастливым обладателем алгоритма Цифровой крепости, просто мы не в состоянии его открыть. Сьюзан не могла не восхититься умом Танкадо. Не открыв своего алгоритма, он доказал АНБ, что тот не поддается дешифровке. Стратмор протянул Сьюзан газетную вырезку.
Провели первый реальный тест. Несмотря на сомнения относительно быстродействия машины, в одном инженеры проявили единодушие: если все процессоры станут действовать параллельно, ТРАНСТЕКСТ будет очень мощным. Вопрос был лишь в том, насколько мощным. Ответ получили через двенадцать минут. Все десять присутствовавших при этом человек в напряженном ожидании молчали, когда вдруг заработавший принтер выдал им открытый текст: шифр был взломан. ТРАНСТЕКСТ вскрыл ключ, состоявший из шестидесяти четырех знаков, за десять с небольшим минут, в два миллиона раз быстрее, чем если бы для этого использовался второй по мощности компьютер АНБ. Тогда бы время, необходимое для дешифровки, составило двадцать лет.
Крошечная сноска гласила: Предел ошибки составляет 12.
- На его компьютере уже стоял жучок! - Он говорил, стараясь, чтобы его слова были слышны между сигналами. - Этот жучок вмонтировал кто-то другой, и я подозреваю, что по распоряжению директора Фонтейна. Я просто попал на все готовое.
Скорее всего Северная Дакота попал в ловушку. Стратмор опустился на колени и повернул тяжелый винтовой замок. Теперь крышку не поднять изнутри. Подсобка компьютера надежно закрыта.
