**Discontinuous Groups of Isometries in the Hyperbolic Plane**

This ebook by means of Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had

a lengthy and complex heritage. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a chain of lectures on

discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean aircraft, and this led him - in the course of

World conflict II - to jot down the 1st chapters of the booklet (in German). whilst Fenchel,

who needed to break out from Denmark to Sweden as a result German career,

returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what grew to become recognized

as the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript. at the moment they have been either on the Technical

University in Copenhagen. the 1st draft of the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript (now

in English) used to be comprehensive in 1948 and it used to be deliberate to be released within the Princeton

Mathematical sequence. even though, as a result quick improvement of the topic, they felt

that immense adjustments needed to be made sooner than booklet.

When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen collage in 1951 (where he stayed till

1955), he used to be a lot concerned with the overseas association UNESCO, and the

further writing of the manuscript used to be left to Fenchel. The documents of Fenchel now

deposited and catalogued on the division of arithmetic at Copenhagen Univer-

sity include unique manuscripts: a partial manuscript (manuscript zero) in Ger-

man containing Chapters I-II (

I -15), and an entire manuscript (manuscript I) in

English containing Chapters I-V (

1-27). The information additionally comprise a part of a corre-

spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place

Nielsen makes unique reviews to Fenchel's writings of Chapters III-V. Fenchel,

who succeeded N. E. Nf/Jrlund at Copenhagen collage in 1956 (and stayed there

until 1974), was once greatly concerned with a radical revision of the curriculum in al-

gebra and geometry, and targeted his study within the thought of convexity, heading

the foreign Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly two decades

he additionally placed a lot attempt into his activity as editor of the newly begun magazine Mathematica

Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this task left him little time to complete the

Fenchel-Nielsen venture the best way he desired to.

After his retirement from the collage, Fenchel - assisted through Christian Sieben-

eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - chanced on time to

finish the ebook basic Geometry in Hyperbolic area, which used to be released by means of

Walter de Gruyter in 1989 presently after his dying. at the same time, and with an identical

collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on

discontinuous teams, elimination some of the vague issues that have been within the unique

manuscript. Fenchel instructed me that he pondered removal elements of the introductory

Chapter I within the manuscript, in view that this could be lined by way of the ebook pointed out above;

but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen e-book self-contained he eventually selected to not do

so. He did choose to miss

27, entitled Thefundamental workforce.

As editor, i began in 1990, with the consent of the criminal heirs of Fenchel and

Nielsen, to supply a TEX-version from the newly typewritten model (manuscript 2).

I am thankful to Dita Andersen and Lise Fuldby-Olsen in my division for hav-

ing performed an excellent activity of typing this manuscript in AMS- TEX. i've got additionally had

much support from my colleague J0rn B0rling Olsson (himself a pupil of Kate Fenchel

at Aarhus college) with the facts analyzing of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)

against manuscript 2 in addition to with a normal dialogue of the difference to the fashion

of TEX. In such a lot respects we determined to stick with Fenchel's intentions. even though, turning

the typewritten variation of the manuscript into TEX helped us to make sure that the notation,

and the spelling of yes key-words, will be uniform in the course of the ebook. additionally,

we have indicated the start and finish of an evidence within the ordinary type of TEX.

With this TEX -manuscript I approached Walter de Gruyter in Berlin in 1992, and

to my nice aid and delight they agreed to put up the manuscript of their sequence

Studies in arithmetic. i'm such a lot thankful for this confident and quickly response. One

particular challenge with the e-book became out to be the replica of the various

figures that are a vital part of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at

first agreed to carry those in ultimate digital shape, yet through 1997 it turned transparent that he

would now not have the ability to locate the time to take action. even though, the writer provided an answer

whereby I should still bring targeted drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't go away such

for Chapters IV and V), after which they'd arrange the creation of the figures in

electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his positive

collaboration about the real construction of the figures.

My colleague Bent Fuglede, who has personaHy recognized either authors, has kindly

written a quick biography of the 2 of them and their mathematical achievements,

and which additionally areas the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript in its right standpoint. In

this connection i want to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and

Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this booklet reproductions of photos of the 2

authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.

Since the manuscript makes use of a few distinct symbols, an inventory of notation with brief

explanations and connection with the particular definition within the booklet has been integrated. additionally,

a accomplished index has been additional. In either instances, all references are to sections,

not pages.

We thought of including an entire record of references, yet determined opposed to it as a result of

the overwhelming variety of examine papers during this sector. as a substitute, a miles shorter

list of monographs and different entire debts proper to the topic has been

collected.

My ultimate and so much honest thank you visit Dr. Manfred Karbe from Walter de Gruyter

for his commitment and perseverance in bringing this booklet into lifestyles.

**Statistics on Special Manifolds**

This booklet is worried with statistical research at the exact manifolds, the Stiefel manifold and the Grassmann manifold, taken care of as statistical pattern areas together with matrices. the previous is represented by way of the set of m x okay matrices whose columns are at the same time orthogonal k-variate vectors of unit size, and the latter through the set of m x m orthogonal projection matrices idempotent of rank ok.

Chapter 2. POLYHEDRA 34 Therefore C'A2 = AB2 + BC2 + C'C2. Corollary. In a rectangular parallelepiped, all diagonals are congruent. 58. Parallel cross sections of pyramids. Theorem. If a pyramid (Figure 49) is intersected by a plane parallel to the base, then: (1) lateral edges and the altitude (SM) are divided by this plane into proportional parts; (2) the cross section itself is a polygon (A'B'C'D'E') similar to the base; (3) the areas of the cross section and the base are proportional to the squares of the distances from them to the vertex.

49. How many of the planes angles of a convex tetrahedral angle can he obtuse? Chapter 1. LINES AND PLANES 28 50. Prove that: if a trihedral angle has two right plane angles then two of its dihedral angles are right. Conversely, if a trihedral angle has two right dihedral angles then two of its plane angles are right. 51. Prove that every plane angle of a tetrahedral angle is smaller than the sum of the other three. 52. Can symmetric polyhedral angles be congruent? 53. Prove that two trihedral angles are congruent ifi (a) all their plane angles are right, or (b) all their dihedral angles are right.

1) A polyhedral angle homothetic to a given one with a positive homothety coefficient is congruent to it. Indeed, when the center of homothety is the vertex, the homothetic coincides with the given one; however, according to the lemma, the choice of another center gives rise to a congruent polyhedral angle. (2) A polygon homothetic to a given one is similar to it. Indeed. e. when the center of homothety lies in the plane of the polygon. Therefore this remains true for any center due to the lemma (since polygons congruent to similar ones are similar).
