Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry and Albert Einstein's Special by Abraham A. Ungar PDF

This publication offers a strong method to examine Einstein's unique idea of relativity and its underlying hyperbolic geometry within which analogies with classical effects shape the suitable software. It introduces the idea of vectors into analytic hyperbolic geometry, the place they're known as gyrovectors. Newtonian pace addition is the typical vector addition, that's either commutative and associative.

Example text

The above mentioned examples by no means exhaust all compact manifolds with K < 0. In fact, there is no slightest chance of any meaningful classification of such manifolds (but there may exist a classification of compact manifolds with K < 0 modulo those with K < 0), On the other hand for K > 0 a rough description of all compact manifolds looks quite feasible. " is roughly equal to some solid [0, iij, X [0, £2] X — • •• X [0, gij and every flat torus roughly is the Riemannian Cartesian product of the circles St of certain lengths &).

We conclude this § by relating the sectional curvature to the curvature tensor defined in § 1, SECTIONAL CURVATURE AND THE CURVATURE OPERATOR. — (1\(V), gv}. To understand the nature of this function we use the standard (Pliicker) embedding of Grz 1RJ1 into the unit sphere of the exterior power A- 1R* which assigns to each plane c g Gr2 1R" the bivector j}-j=Xif\x-i for an orthogonal basis (xl,x-i) in a c K". This (i does not depend on the choice of xltx2 (here we need <> oriented and the basis respecting this orientation) and the norm \\§\\ (naturally defined with the Euclidean norm in 1R") equals one.

The idea of the freedom theorem goes back to PeJix Kiein who proved it for groups acting on the hyperbolic space H:i with K — — 1. The generalization to the subgroups FcSL^ acting on the manifold SLn/SO(n) with K < 0 is a famous result by J, Tits, The extension to the variable strictly negative curvature is due to P. Eberlein and in the general case the freedom theorem was recently proven by W, Ballmann on the basis of a deep analysis of the nature of « nonstrictness » for K <, Q.
