Lectures on Chevalley Groups Robert Steinberg. Lectures on Coarse Geometry John Roe. Attention is then concentrated on proving the existence of quasiconformal mappings with a given complex dilatation. Alexa Actionable Analytics for lecturew Web.

The third, by Hubbard, illustrates the role of these mappings in Thurston’s theory of hyperbolic structures on 3-manifolds. The lectures and supplements constitute a very efficient way of learning some complicated theories with numerous applications.

He then studies the extent to which quasiconformal mappings are isometries, called “quasi-isometries” where distances are multiplied by a bounded factor. Looking for beautiful books? Learn more about Amazon Prime. Simple relations are shown to exist between the three different extremal modules.


Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings: Second Edition

The first, written by Earle and Kra, describes further developments in the theory of Teichmuller spaces and provides many references to the vast literature on Teichmuller spaces and quasiconformal mappings. The author introduces the study of quasiconformal mappings as natural generalizations of conformal mappings, as mappings less rigid than conformal mappings, as mappings important in the study of elliptic partial differential equations, as generating interesting extremal problems, as important in moduli theory and Fuchsian and Kleinian groups, and as mappings that are better behaved in the context of several complex variables.

The second edition is made much more valuable by the addition of three new chapters by leading authorities in fields where quasiconformal mappings have proved especially fruitful. Description Lars Ahlfors’ Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings, based on a course he gave at Harvard University in the spring term ofwas first published in and was soon recognized as the classic it was shortly destined to become.

This then allows a homeomorphic extension to the closed disk. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers.

I’d like to read this book on Kindle Mappins have a Kindle? The dilatation is computed by considering the effect that the linearization of a C1 homeomorphism has on circles. Then again, it’s telling that at various points the editors have added footnotes to fill in significant omissions from the arguments. Print Price 1 Label: Get to Know Us. Lecturse author ends his book with a consideration of Teichmuller spaces, with attention given to the extent to which the classical theory of conformally equivalent Riemann lecgures can be generalized to the context of quasiconformal mappings.


The “module” is then defined to be the ratio of the sides of the rectangle that the quadrilateral is mapped to conformally. I probably wouldn’t recommend it as a first text, but for a serious student of the subject it’s worth reading eventually.

Together, these three new chapters exhibit the continuing vitality and importance of the theory of quasiconformal mappings. One person found this helpful. This edition includes three new chapters.
