A history of non-euclidean geometry: evolution of the by Boris A. Rosenfeld, Abe Shenitzer, Hardy Grant

By Boris A. Rosenfeld, Abe Shenitzer, Hardy Grant

This booklet is an research of the mathematical and philosophical elements underlying the invention of the idea that of noneuclidean geometries, and the following extension of the concept that of house. Chapters one via 5 are dedicated to the evolution of the idea that of area, best as much as bankruptcy six which describes the invention of noneuclidean geometry, and the corresponding broadening of the idea that of house. the writer is going directly to talk about innovations equivalent to multidimensional areas and curvature, and transformation teams. The booklet ends with a bankruptcy describing the purposes of nonassociative algebras to geometry.

This lead to the theory of renormalization in the field of complex dynamics in one variable. In fact rigorous proofs in this area all use complexification. An analogous theory has not been developed in higher dimension although computer pictures indicate that the phenomenon occurs also for H´enon maps in R2 . The phenomenon is related to period doubling. In the complex domain one can ask the same in the case of behaviour under for example period tripling in the complex part of the Mandelbrot set.
