Geometry V : minimal surfaces

Book

15 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Osserman (Ed.) Geometry V Minimal Surfaces The theory of minimal surfaces has expanded in many directions over the past decade or two. This volume gathers in one place an overview of some of the most exciting developments, presented by five of the leading contributors to those developments. Hirotaka Fujimoto, who obtained the definitive results on the Gauss map of minimal surfaces, reports on Nevanlinna Theory and Minimal Surfaces. Stefan Hildebrandt provides an uptodate account of the Plateau problem and related boundaryvalue problems. David Hoffman and Hermann Karcher describe the wealth of results on embedded minimal surfaces from the past decade, starting with Costa's surface and the subsequent HoffmanMeeks examples. Finally, Leon Simon covers the PDE aspect of minimal surfaces, with a survey of known results both in the classical case of surfaces and in the higher dimensional case. The book will be very useful as a reference and research guide to graduate students and researchers in mathematics

Fermat's last theorem the theorem and its proof, an exploration of issues and ideas
(
Visual
)
4 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The videotape is based on a presentation at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco that took place on July 28, 1993, exactly five weeks after Andrew Wiles announced that he had a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The videotape also includes excerpts from an interview with Andrew Wiles made in Oxford, England, the day after he announced his proof in Cambridge. Both the booklet and the videotape are designed for a general audience. They deal not only with Fermat's Last Theorem itself, but with the excitement of mathematical discovery in general and the way mathematical ideas can illuminate other subjects

4 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide A dialogue between the mathematician Robert Osserman and the playwright Tom Stoppard commenting on Stoppard's play Arcadia. The plot of the stageplay revolves around the philosophical inquiries of a young woman and her tutor concerning the nature of mathematics, specifically Fermat's last theorem, and the investigations of two other scholars into the proofs for the theorem

by Robert Osserman
(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Ce livre retrace l'évolution des théories mathématiques qui ont aidé à éclairer la nature de l'univers observable. Riche en anecdotes, cet ouvrage explore les sursauts d'imagination et les élans visionnaires des mathématiciens fondateurs de la compréhension du monde. Au fil des pages, l'auteur présente des figures emblématiques telles que Carl Friedrich Gauss et Bernhard Riemann

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Author and actor Steve Martin chatted with mathematician Robert Osserman of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley on December 15, 2002 at San Francisco's Herbst Theatre. They discussed literature and mathematics, why two banjos are like one slide rule, and whether we really know what pi is. Steve Martin read and enacted excerpts from his works, reminisced about his work for the Smothers Brothers, and discussed the authors who influenced him. The hilarity of this event as it spins out of control has to be seen (on this videotape) to be believed!"Container

Geometry III : theory of surfaces
by I︠U︡. D Burago
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The theory of twodimensional surfaces in Euclidean spaces is remarkably rich in deep results and applications, for example in the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations, physics and mechanics. This theory has great clarity and intrinsic beauty, and differs in many respects from the theory of multidimensional submanifolds. A separate volume of the Encyclopaedia is therefore devoted to surfaces. It is concerned mainly with the connection between the theory of embedded surfaces and twodimensional Riemannian geometry (and its generalizations), and, above all, with the question of the influence of properties of intrinsic metrics on the geometry of surfaces. In the first article Yu. D. Burago and S.Z. Shefel' give an extended survey of surfaces from a nontraditional viewpoint stressing the connection between classes of metrics and classes of surfaces in En. A number of conjectures are included. The article of E.R. Rozendorn considers the state of the art of the still incomplete theory of the geometry of surfaces of negative curvature in threedimensional Euclidean space, and the article of I. Kh. Sabitov considers subtle questions of local bendability and rigidity ofsurfaces. These articles reflect the development of the results of N.V. Efimov and also include statements of unsolved problems
