Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".

Extended tensorial curvature analysis for embeddings and foliations. (English) Zbl 0877.57013
Nencka, Hanna (ed.) et al., Geometry and nature: in memory of W. K. Clifford. A conference on new trends in geometrical and topological methods, July 30--August 5, 1995, Madeira, Portugal. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society. Contemp. Math. 203, 207-219 (1997).
The author summarizes the techniques and methods in the evolution of differential geometry and new physical problems: the first deformation tensor and the second fundamental tensor, the rotation tensor, adapted foliation connection etc. The main results of the work show how the classical tensor formalism attached to an embedded $p$-surface provides a concise and flexible machinery for the generalized curvature analysis of embedded $p$-surfaces and foliations necessary in cosmology and physics. For the entire collection see [Zbl 0864.00055].
