This e-book comprises components, varied in shape yet comparable in spirit. the 1st, which includes chapters zero via nine, is a revised and a bit enlarged model of the 1972 e-book Geometrie Differentielle. the second one half, chapters 10 and eleven, is an try and therapy the infamous absence within the unique e-book of any remedy of surfaces in three-space, an omission all of the extra unforgivable in that surfaces are one of the most universal geometrical gadgets, not just in arithmetic yet in lots of branches of physics. Geometrie Differentielle was once in response to a path I taught in Paris in 1969- 70 and back in 1970-71. In designing this direction i used to be decisively influ­ enced via a talk with Serge Lang, and that i enable myself be guided by means of 3 basic principles. First, to prevent making the assertion and facts of Stokes' formulation the climax of the path and working out of time ahead of any of its purposes may be mentioned. moment, to demonstrate every one new proposal with non-trivial examples, once attainable after its introduc­ tion. and at last, to familiarize geometry-oriented scholars with research and analysis-oriented scholars with geometry, a minimum of in what matters manifolds.

An Introduction to Noncommutative Geometry

Noncommutative geometry, encouraged by means of quantum physics, describes singular areas via their noncommutative coordinate algebras and metric buildings via Dirac-like operators. Such metric geometries are defined mathematically via Connes' concept of spectral triples. those lectures, added at an EMS summer season university on noncommutative geometry and its functions, supply an outline of spectral triples in keeping with examples.

Geometry, Topology and Quantization

This can be a monograph on geometrical and topological positive factors which come up in a variety of quantization systems. Quantization schemes ponder the feasibility of arriving at a quantum method from a classical one and those contain 3 significant approaches viz. i) geometric quantization, ii) Klauder quantization, and iii) stochastic quanti­ zation.

Complex Spaces in Finsler, Lagrange and Hamilton Geometries

From a old perspective, the speculation we undergo the current research has its origins within the recognized dissertation of P. Finsler from 1918 ([Fi]). In a the classical suggestion additionally traditional class, Finsler geometry has along with a few generalizations, which use a similar paintings procedure and which might be thought of self-geometries: Lagrange and Hamilton areas.

Introductory Differential Geometry For Physicists

This publication develops the maths of differential geometry in a much more intelligible to physicists and different scientists drawn to this box. This ebook is essentially divided into three degrees; point zero, the closest to instinct and geometrical event, is a quick precis of the speculation of curves and surfaces; point 1 repeats, reviews and develops upon the normal equipment of tensor algebra research and point 2 is an advent to the language of recent differential geometry.
