Membrane curvature is the geometrical measure or characterization of the curvature of membranes can be naturally occurring or man-made (synthetic). An example of naturally occurring membrane is the lipid bilayer of cells, also known as cellular membranes. Synthetic membranes can be obtained by preparing aqueous solutions of certain lipids. The book will form a valuable addition to the algebraist's library. D. E RUTHERFOR. D GOLDBERG, s. i. Curvature, and Homology (Academic Press, ), xvii+ pp., 68s. This book is a graduate text and the reader is assumed to have some knowledge of Riemannian geometry, Lie groups, and the elements of analytic and algebraic topology.

It also provides a short survey of recent developments in digital geometry processing and discrete differential geometry. Topics include: curves and surfaces, curvature, connections and parallel transport, exterior algebra, exterior calculus, Stokes' theorem, simplicial homology, de Rham cohomology, Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition, conformal. I am not an expert, but there seems to be an enormous technical difference between algebraic geometry and differential/metric geometry stemming from the fact that there is apparently no such thing as curvature in the former context while curvature is everywhere in the latter (indeed, it is hard to produce nontrivial results in Riemannian geometry that DON'T involve curvature).

In chapter 6, the author studies in detail how curvature and homology are related for the case of Kaehler manifolds. The results in this chapter could be viewed as a generalization of the classical results concerning compact Riemann surfaces, namely that the universal covering space of a complex n-dimensional compact Kaehler manifold of /5(3).

This book could be loosely characterized as an attempt to generalize the theory of Riemann surfaces to that of Riemannian manifolds.

The reader familiar with the theory of Riemann surfaces will perhaps find this book easier to read than one who has not. the author studies in detail how curvature and homology are related for the case of /5.

There is an algebraic topology book that specializes particularly in homology theory-namely, James Vick's Homology Theory:An Introduction To Algebraic does a pretty good job of presenting singular homology theory from an abstract,modern point of view, but with plenty of pictures.

This monograph developed out of the Abendseminar of at the University of Zürich. The purpose of this monograph is to develop the de Rham cohomology theory, and to apply it to obtain topological invariants of smooth manifolds and fibre bundles.

It also addresses the purely algebraic theory of the operation of a Lie algebra in a graded differential algebra. : Connections, Curvature, and Cohomology. Vol. 2: Lie Groups, Principal Bundles, and Characteristic Classes (Pure and Applied Mathematics Series; v.

This integral can thus be viewed as a mapping from a de Rham cohomology coset represented by the closed \({k}\)-form \({\varphi}\) to the real functions on a homology coset represented by.
