Applied Differential Geometry ( A compendium )

  title={Applied Differential Geometry ( A compendium )},
  • Mathematics
The content of these notes is what "compendium" suggests: Not a tutorial, but a list, in logical order, of concepts of differential geometry that can serve in the study of PDE's of classical physics, each with a condensed description 1. The idea is to guide the reader along a way that can, for one who wants to reach those spots most useful for applications, be faster than conventional courses. But the need for a reference book will probably be felt. Good books about differential geometry, "pure…

Geometric Aspects of Discretized Classical Field Theories: Extensions to Finite Element Exterior Calculus, Noether Theorems, and the Geodesic Finite Element Method
In this dissertation, I will discuss and explore the various theoretical pillars re- quired to investigate the world of discretized gauge theories in a purely classical setting, with the long-term
Foundations of computational geometric mechanics
Geometric mechanics involves the study of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics using geometric and symmetry techniques. Computational algorithms obtained from a discrete Hamilton's principle yield a
Higher Order Active Contours
A new class of active contour models that hold great promise for region and shape modelling are introduced, and a special case of these models are applied to the extraction of road networks from satellite and aerial imagery.

Electrodynamics without Lorentz force
This communication is devoted to a brief historical framework and to a comprehensive critical discussion concerning foundational issues of Electrodynamics. Attention is especially focused on the
On Frame-Invariance in Electrodynamics
The Faraday and Ampere-Maxwell laws of electrodynamics in space-time manifold are formulated in terms of differential forms and exterior and Lie derivatives. Due to their natural behavior with
Chain Rule for planar bi–Sobolev maps
For a planar bi–Sobolev map f the zero set of the Jacobian may have positive measure while the regular set does have positive measure. We discuss the compatibility of these facts with the validity of
Notes on affine and convex spaces
These notes are a short introduction to affine and convex spaces, written especially for physics students. They try to connect and summarize the different elementary presentations available in the
Beyond Feynman's troubles in Electromagnetics
New basic principles of electric and magnetic induction are formulated as bal- ance laws referring to material paths undergoing piecewise discontinuous motions. The resulting differential rules are
Maxwell’s Equations: Continuous and Discrete
This is an introduction to the spatial Galerkin discretization of Maxwell’s equations on bounded domains covering both modeling in the framework of exterior calculus, the construction of discrete

How to build minimal polyhedral models to the boy surface
In the middle of the last century A. Mobius gave a combinatorial description of a closed, one-sided, polyhedral surface, which was soon recognized as a topological model of the real projective plane.
Poincaré gauge in electrodynamics
The gauge presented here, which we call the Poincare gauge, is a generalization of the well‐known expressions φ = −r⋅E0 and A = 1/2 B0×r for the scalar and vector potentials which describe static,
