By Vladimir G Ivancevic
This graduate-level monographic textbook treats utilized differential geometry from a contemporary medical viewpoint. Co-authored by way of the originator of the realm s major human movement simulator Human Biodynamics Engine , a posh, 264-DOF bio-mechanical method, modeled by means of differential-geometric instruments this can be the 1st booklet that mixes sleek differential geometry with a large spectrum of purposes, from smooth mechanics and physics, through nonlinear regulate, to biology and human sciences. The booklet is designed for a two-semester path, which supplies mathematicians various functions for his or her idea and physicists, in addition to different scientists and engineers, a powerful conception underlying their types.

A few of the earliest books, really these courting again to the 1900s and ahead of, are actually super scarce and more and more dear. we're republishing those vintage works in reasonable, prime quality, glossy variations, utilizing the unique textual content and art.
Parabolic geometries surround a really various category of geometric constructions, together with such very important examples as conformal, projective, and nearly quaternionic buildings, hypersurface variety CR-structures and numerous different types of conventional distributions. The attribute characteristic of parabolic geometries is an similar description via a Cartan geometry modeled on a generalized flag manifold (the quotient of a semisimple Lie team via a parabolic subgroup).
During this ebook the writer has attempted to use "a little mind's eye and pondering" to modelling dynamical phenomena from a classical atomic and molecular standpoint. Nonlinearity is emphasised, as are phenomena that are elusive from the continuum mechanics standpoint. FORTRAN programmes are supplied within the appendices An creation to formal integrability concept of partial differential platforms; Frolicher-Nijenhuis idea of derivations; differential algebraic formalism of connections; important stipulations for variational sprays; obstructions to the integrability of the Euler-Lagrange procedure; the category of in the neighborhood variational sprays on two-dimensional manifolds; Euler-Lagrange structures within the isotropic case
