geometry, relativity and the fourth dimemsion
Well Written Introduction to the Fourth Dimension
Good intro to related topics to Special Relativity

Editorial Review Product Description Hermann Minkowski recast special relativity as essentially a new geometric structure for spacetime. This book looks at the ideas of both Einstein and Minkowski, and then introduces the theory of frames, surfaces and intrinsic geometry, developing the main implications of Einstein's general relativity theory.

Excellent and will never find better !
A great intermediate level book.
Great for learning how to actually use the math behind GR
One of the best.
Disappointing The book takes over three hundred pages to get to general relativity (where there seems to be no mention of the equivalence principle!), and I doubt if it's worth the effort. You would do better to work through Foster & Nightingale's 'Short Course in General Relativity', which is a first-rate and accessible introduction if you have a little background in special relativity. And it's two-thirds the price. Conclusion: There may be a good book waiting to be written on these lines, but I'm sorry to say this isn't it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone as a first course in relativity. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description "Geometry and Physics" addresses mathematicians wanting to understand modern physics, and physicists wanting to learn geometry. It gives an introduction to modern quantum field theory and related areas of theoretical high-energy physics from the perspective of Riemannian geometry, and an introduction to modern geometry as needed and utilized in modern physics. Jürgen Jost, a well-known research mathematician and advanced textbook author, also develops important geometric concepts and methods that can be used for the structures of physics. In particular, he discusses the Lagrangians of the standard model and its supersymmetric extensions from a geometric perspective. |

Editorial Review Product Description Discrete differential geometry is an active mathematical terrain where differential geometry and discrete geometry meet and interact. It provides discrete equivalents of the geometric notions and methods of differential geometry, such as notions of curvature and integrability for polyhedral surfaces. Current progress in this field is to a large extent stimulated by its relevance for computer graphics and mathematical physics. This collection of essays, which documents the main lectures of the 2004 Oberwolfach Seminar on the topic, as well as a number of additional contributions by key participants, gives a lively, multi-facetted introduction to this emerging field. |

Editorial Review Product Description This book offers a unique opportunity to understand the essence of one of the great thinkers of western civilization. A guided reading of Euclid's Elements leads to a critical discussion and rigorous modern treatment of Euclid's geometry and its more recent descendants, with complete proofs. Topics include the introduction of coordinates, the theory of area, history of the parallel postulate, the various non-Euclidean geometries, and the regular and semi-regular polyhedra.

Good introduction to the relationship between algebra and geometry
Geometry - anything else you need?
Where was this book when I was a student?
Bring your copy of Elements!

16. Riemannian Geometry (Universitext) (Volume 0) by Sylvestre Gallot, Dominique Hulin, Jacques Lafontaine | |

list price: US$52.95 -- used & new: US$40.31 (price subject to change: see help) Asin: 3540204938 Average Customer Review: Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan | |
Editorial Review Product Description This book, based on a graduate course on Riemannian geometry and analysis on manifolds, held in Paris, covers the topics of differential manifolds, Riemannian metrics, connections, geodesics and curvature, with special emphasis on the intrinsic features of the subject. Classical results on the relations between curvature and topology are treated in detail. The book is quite self-contained, assuming of the reader only differential calculus in Euclidean space. It contains numerous exercises with full solutions and a series of detailed examples which are picked up repeatedly to illustrate each new definition or property introduced. For this third edition, some topics about the geodesic flow and Lorentzian geometry have been added and worked out in the same spirit. Customer Reviews (1)

Editorial Review Product Description The geometry of the hyperbolic plane has been an active and fascinating field of mathematical inquiry for most of the past two centuries. This second edition of Hyperbolic Geometry has been thoroughly rewritten and updated. Chapter 4 focuses on planar models of hyperbolic plane that arise from complex analysis and looks at the connections between planar hyperbolic geometry and complex analysis. However most of the new material will appear in Chapter 6 and concentrates on an introduction to the hyperboloid model of the hyperbolic plane. The chapter concludes with a discussion of hyperbolic geometry in higher dimensions, and generalizations of hyperbolicity (this, in particular, is an important topic that allows for an in-depth development of the fundamental concepts). This book is written primarily for third or fourth year undergraduate students with some calculus knowledge. It contains new exercises with solutions and is ideal for self-study or as a classroom text. Customer Reviews (3)
