Introduction a la Topologie

Ce cours de topologie a été dispensé en licence à l'Université de Rennes 1 de 1999 à 2002. Toutes les constructions permettant de parler de limite et de continuité sont d'abord dégagées, puis l'utilité de l. a. compacité pour ramener des problèmes de complexité infinie à l'étude d'un nombre fini de cas est explicitée.

Spaces of Constant Curvature

This ebook is the 6th version of the vintage areas of continuing Curvature, first released in 1967, with the former (fifth) version released in 1984. It illustrates the excessive measure of interaction among staff thought and geometry. The reader will enjoy the very concise remedies of riemannian and pseudo-riemannian manifolds and their curvatures, of the illustration idea of finite teams, and of symptoms of modern development in discrete subgroups of Lie teams.

T ∂λ ∂λ ∂t Let ζ(·, λ) = (ζj (·, λ)) ∈ C 1 ([0, 1]; R3 ) denote for each 0 ≤ λ ≤ 1 the solution of the Cauchy problem corresponding to the path G(·, λ) joining x0 to x1 . We thus have ∂ζj ∂Gi (t, λ) = Γpij (G(t, λ)) (t, λ)ζp (t, λ) for all 0 ≤ t ≤ 1, 0 ≤ λ ≤ 1, ∂t ∂t ζj (0, λ) = ζj0 for all 0 ≤ λ ≤ 1. Sect. 6] Existence of an immersion with a prescribed metric tensor 31 Our objective is to show that ∂ζj (1, λ) = 0 for all 0 ≤ λ ≤ 1, ∂λ as this relation will imply that ζj (1, 0) = ζj (1, 1), as desired.

6-1). Then there exist immersions Θn ∈ C 3 (Ω; E3 ) satisfying (∇Θn )T ∇Θn = Cn in Ω, n ≥ 0, such that lim n→∞ Θn − Θ 3,K = 0 for all K Ω. Proof. The proof is broken into four parts. In what follows, C and Cn designate matrix fields possessing the properties listed in the statement of the theorem. (i) Let Θ ∈ C 3 (Ω; E3 ) be any mapping that satisfies ∇ΘT ∇Θ = C in Ω. Then there exist a countable number of open balls Br ⊂ Ω, r ≥ 1, such that ∞ r Ω = r=1 Br and such that, for each r ≥ 1, the set s=1 Bs is connected and the restriction of Θ to Br is injective.

For each integer , we may thus unambiguously define a vector field (F j ) : Ω → R3 by letting F j (x1 ) := ζj (1) for any x1 ∈ Ω, where γ ∈ C 1 ([0, 1]; R3 ) is any path joining x0 to x1 in Ω and the vector field (ζj ) ∈ C 1 ([0, 1]) is the solution to the Cauchy problem dγ i dζj (t) = Γpij (γ(t)) (t)ζp (t), 0 ≤ t ≤ 1, dt dt ζj (0) = ζj0 , corresponding to such a path. To establish that such a vector field is indeed the -th row-vector field of the unknown matrix field we are seeking, we need to show that (F j )3j=1 ∈ C 1 (Ω; R3 ) and that this field does satisfy the partial differential equations ∂i F j = Γpij F p in Ω corresponding to the fixed integer used in the above Cauchy problem.
