Confoliations by Y. Eliashberg

By Y. Eliashberg

This publication provides the 1st steps of a thought of confoliations designed to hyperlink geometry and topology of 3-dimensional touch buildings with the geometry and topology of codimension-one foliations on 3-dimensional manifolds. constructing virtually independently, those theories at the beginning look belonged to 2 assorted worlds: the idea of foliations is a part of topology and dynamical platforms, whereas touch geometry is the odd-dimensional 'brother' of symplectic geometry. despite the fact that, either theories have built a couple of impressive similarities. Confoliations - which interpolate among touch constructions and codimension-one foliations - might be useful us to appreciate higher hyperlinks among the 2 theories. those hyperlinks supply instruments for transporting effects from one box to the other.It's gains contain: a unified method of the topology of codimension-one foliations and phone geometry; perception at the geometric nature of integrability; and, new effects, particularly at the perturbation of confoliations into touch buildings

Topological Methods for Variational Problems with Symmetries

Symmetry has a robust influence at the quantity and form of strategies to variational difficulties. This has been saw, for example, within the look for periodic recommendations of Hamiltonian structures or of the nonlinear wave equation; whilst one is drawn to elliptic equations on symmetric domain names or within the corresponding semiflows; and whilst one is seeking "special" ideas of those difficulties.

L. E. J. Brouwer Collected Works. Geometry, Analysis, Topology and Mechanics

L. E. J. Brouwer amassed Works, quantity 2: Geometry, research, Topology, and Mechanics makes a speciality of the contributions and rules of Brouwer on geometry, topology, research, and mechanics, together with non-Euclidean areas, integrals, and surfaces. The ebook first ponders on non-Euclidean areas and necessary theorems, lie teams, and aircraft transition theorem.

So the question again arises, could not Euclid have proved proposition I,47 more simply by using those diagrams?

Q1 p1 /q2 qs used for that purpose in Zermelo’s proof. Euclid’s Lemma may also be proved by reductio. Indeed, Gauss did so (for the contrapositive statement) in his Disquisitiones Arithmeticae. His proof, presented next below, is actually a double reductio that invokes the division algorithm thrice. Eighth proof: Gauss first showed by reductio that no prime p can divide a product of two smaller positive integers. For suppose to the contrary that p is a prime that divides such a product, and let r < p be the least positive integer for which there exists a positive integer s < p such that p divides rs.
