The fundamental theorem of curves and classifications in the Heisenberg groups
We study the horizontally regular curves in the Heisenberg groups $H_n$. We show the fundamental theorem of curves in $H_n$ $(n\geq 2)$ and define the concept of the orders for horizontally regular
On Local Congruence of Immersions in Homogeneous or Nonhomogeneous Spaces
We show how to find a complete set of necessary and sufficient conditions that solve the fixed-parameter local congruence problem of immersions in G-spaces, whether ho- mogeneous or not, provided
Symmetries of Polynomials
Abstract New algorithms for determining discrete and continuous symmetries of polynomials - also known as binary forms in classical invariant theory - are presented, and implemented in MAPLE. The
Differential invariants for parametrized projective surfaces
The differential invariants associated with a transformation group acting on a manifold are the fundamental building blocks for understanding the geometry, equivalence, symmetry and other properties
The $\kappa$-nullity of Riemannian manifolds and their splitting tensors
. We consider Riemannian n -manifolds M with nontrivial κ -nullity “distribution” of the curvature tensor R , namely, the variable rank distribu- tion of tangent subspaces to M where R coincides with
Pinching for holomorphic curves in a complex Grassmann manifold G(2,n;C)
Applications of the Frenet Frame to Electric Circuits
TLDR
The proposed approach is based on the Frenet frame utilized in differential geometry and provides a general framework for the definition of the time derivative of electrical quantities in stationary as well as transient conditions.
Conformal geometry of isotropic curves in the complex quadric
Let Q3 be the complex 3-quadric endowed with its standard complex conformal structure. We study the complex conformal geometry of isotropic curves in Q3. By an isotropic curve we mean a nonconstant
