Complex, contact and symmetric manifolds: In honor of L. Vanhecke

This booklet is concentrated at the interrelations among the curvature and the geometry of Riemannian manifolds. It includes study and survey articles according to the most talks brought on the overseas Congress

Differential Geometry and the Calculus of Variations

During this booklet, we examine theoretical and useful facets of computing equipment for mathematical modelling of nonlinear platforms. a couple of computing strategies are thought of, similar to equipment of operator approximation with any given accuracy; operator interpolation ideas together with a non-Lagrange interpolation; tools of process illustration topic to constraints linked to innovations of causality, reminiscence and stationarity; tools of procedure illustration with an accuracy that's the most sensible inside a given category of types; tools of covariance matrix estimation;methods for low-rank matrix approximations; hybrid equipment in accordance with a mix of iterative strategies and top operator approximation; andmethods for info compression and filtering below situation filter out version should still fulfill regulations linked to causality and types of reminiscence.

X") the coefficients of the second fundamental form are L; = z,,,,/ l + (grad z12. 3) 2 - (x4) 2 the asymptotic lines satisfy the equation (dx') 2 + (dr 2) 22 - (d%3) 2 - (dr4) 2 = 0. The p-parametric curve x1 =a cos a, gyp, x2 = a sin a, cp, a; = b COs a2cp, x4 = b sin a2rp, with a. b, a,, a2 constants, satisfy the equation above when a condition (aa,) 2 = (bat) 2 is satisfied. These curves are closed when a, /a2 is a rational number. The curve considered in the example lies in a sphere of radius v/a2 -+b2.

Let xi, y,, zi (i = 1, 2) be Cartesian coordinates of the endpoints. The location of the segment can be described by six coordinates x1, y1, 21,x2, }'2, z2. They fix the point in E6. Subject this coordinates to conditions: ''r(xny,, 21) = 0, i=1,2; 4'3 = 2 [(xi - x2)2 + U'1 -1'2)2 + (21 - 22)2 - a2]= 0. GENERAL PROPERTIES OF SUBMANIFOLDS 25 IIGURE 5 The first and second conditions are the equations of the surfaces to which the endpoints of the segments belong. So, we have an implicit representation of some submanifold in E6.

By means of the Weingarten decomposition, do = n,,, du' _ -L; dit'gikr,rk. For the principal direction the following holds: (L;,,-Agy)du'=0. Hence do = -Agydug/kr". = -Abler,,. du' = -A dr. Thus, Rodrigues' formula holds -- the differential of a unit normal along the principal direction is parallel to this direction: do = -A dr. l)2)4' where (') means differentiating with respect to t. Prove that coordinate curves are lines of curvature. 4 Integrability Condition for Principal Directions In contrast to the two-dimensional case, many-dimensional hypersurfaces do not, in general, possess coordinates that the coordinate hypersurface would be orthogonal to the principal directions.
