In mathematics, constant curvature is a concept from differentialcurvature refers to the sectional curvature of a space (more precisely a manifold) and is a single number determining its local sectional curvature is said to be constant if it has the same value at every point and for every two-dimensional tangent plane at that point.

The book provides a self contained study of spaces of constant curvature. However, if one is interested specifically on symmetric spaces, or fixed point free groups and their representations instead, there is also an exhaustive description of these topics to satisfy one's curiosity.

In spatial case, if torsion is also constant, then it must be circular helix. However, if torsion is arbitrarily given, such as $\tau(s)=e^s$, can we solve it explicitly. If not, I wonder what characteristic properties it satisfies. The book by Jost defines a ``locally symmetric space" as one for which the curvature tensor is constant and which is geodesically complete.

Andreas' book attributes to Cartan a theorem that a space is locally symmetric if and only if its curvature tensor is constant. It is positive curvature since two geodesics at right angles curve in the same direction in the space. This is the geometry associated with the alternative postulate 5 NONE.

There is a second case of a surface of constant curvature, described also in the last chapter. This is a surface of negative curvature. Two geodesics at right angles curve. It says: For every real number K and every dimension n, there is only one simply connected, complete Riemannian manifold of dimension n and of constant sectional curvature K, up to isometry.

Since rescaling the metric by t > 0, multiplies the curvature by 1/t^2, this leaves us with only 3 possible models for the space, according to whether the.

Wolf Publication Year: ISBN ISBN The algebraic description of Riemannian symmetric spaces enabled Élie Cartan to obtain a complete classification of them in For a given Riemannian symmetric space M let (G,K,σ,g) be the algebraic data associated to classify the possible isometry classes of M, first note that the universal cover of a Riemannian symmetric space is again Riemannian symmetric, and the covering map.

Locally symmetric spaces are generalizations of spaces of constant curvature. In this book the author presents the proof of a remarkable phenomenon, which he calls "strong rigidity": this is a stronger form of the deformation rigidity that has been investigated by Selberg, Calabi-Vesentini, Weil, Borel, and.

Geodesic deviation allows us to track how the curvature changes. When we looked at spaces of constant curvature, we defined geodesics as curves of shortest distance between two points. That definition remains. The importance of the Codazzi equations for hypersurfaces in constant curvature spaces is well known.

There are several analogous equations for affine hypersurfaces, in particular also for higher order forms. Recall the definition of Codazzi operators and of a Codazzi pair {∇, Φ] of order m in Section Spaces of constant curvature.

The simple idea of comparing the geometry of an arbitrary Riemannian manifold with the geometries of constant curvature spaces has seen a tremendous evolution recently.

This volume is an up-to-date reflection of the recent development regarding spaces with lower (or two-sided) curvature 5/5(1).

We develop the local theory of surfaces immersed in the pseudo-Galilean space, a special type of Cayley-Klein spaces. We define principal, Gaussian, and mean curvatures.

By this, the general setting for study of surfaces of constant curvature in the pseudo-Galilean space is provided. We describe surfaces of revolution of constant curvature.

Spaces of constant curvature are distinguished from the other Riemannian spaces by one of the following characteristic properties: 1) spaces of constant curvature satisfy the axiom of planes, i.e. through every point and in the direction of every plane element at this point there passes a totally-geodesic submanifold; and 2) a space of constant.
