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 booklet 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 workforce idea 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.

1 Correspondence between the i-Plane of Vectors and the Spinor Plane From the foregoing, one notices that each vector x in the i-plane of vectors determines a unique spinor z in the spinor plane as given by z = σ1 x = σ1 (x1 σ1 + x2 σ2 ) = x1 + i x2 . 19) Conversely, each spinor z in the spinor plane determines a unique vector x in the vector plane as follows: σ1 x = z, σ12 x = σ1 z x = σ1 z. 20) Distinction between Vector and Spinor Planes The elements of the vector and spinor planes have different algebraic properties because of two distinct interpretations of i in them, which endow different geometric significance to each of the planes.

K=0 = 1 + A/1! + A /2! + · · · + A /k! 57) if |A| has a definite magnitude. 57) can be shown to be absolutely convergent for all values of A provided |A| has a definite magnitude. So, it may be extended to general multivectors. 57) is completely defined in terms of the basic operations of addition and multiplication (geometric product), which determine all the properties of the function. By using the closure property of the geometric algebra under the operations of addition and multiplication (geometric product) it can be shown that exp( A) is a definite multivector.

13): a (b + c) = a · (b + c) + a ∧ (b + c) = (a · b + a · c) + (a ∧ b + a ∧ c) = (a · b + a ∧ b) + (a · c + a ∧ c) = ab + ac [definition of geometric product] [associative rules for addition] [rearrangement of terms] [definition of geometric product]. 14). 14) are independent of one another because the geometric product is, in general, neither commutative nor anticommutative. In any algebra the associative property is extremely useful in algebraic manipulations. For this purpose we assume that for any three vectors a , b, and c the geometric product is associative: a (bc) = (ab)c = abc.
