This e-book through Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had
a lengthy and complex heritage. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a sequence of lectures on
discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean aircraft, and this led him - in the course of
World battle II - to jot down the 1st chapters of the booklet (in German). while Fenchel,
who needed to break out from Denmark to Sweden as a result of German profession,
returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what turned 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) was once entire in 1948 and it used to be deliberate to be released within the Princeton
Mathematical sequence. although, as a result quick improvement of the topic, they felt
that gigantic adjustments needed to be made ahead of book.
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 was once left to Fenchel. The information of Fenchel now
deposited and catalogued on the division of arithmetic at Copenhagen Univer-
sity comprise 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 files additionally include a part of a corre-
spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place
Nielsen makes certain reviews to Fenchel's writings of Chapters III-V. Fenchel,
who succeeded N. E. Nf/Jrlund at Copenhagen college in 1956 (and stayed there
until 1974), used to be a great deal concerned with an intensive revision of the curriculum in al-
gebra and geometry, and targeted his examine within the concept of convexity, heading
the overseas Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly two decades
he additionally positioned a lot attempt into his activity as editor of the newly all started magazine Mathematica
Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this job left him little time to complete the
Fenchel-Nielsen undertaking the best way he desired to.
After his retirement from the collage, Fenchel - assisted by means of Christian Sieben-
eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - stumbled on time to
finish the publication common Geometry in Hyperbolic area, which used to be released by means of
Walter de Gruyter in 1989 almost immediately after his loss of life. at the same time, and with an identical
collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on
discontinuous teams, removal the various imprecise issues that have been within the unique
manuscript. Fenchel advised me that he pondered elimination components of the introductory
Chapter I within the manuscript, due to the fact that this could be lined by means of the ebook pointed out above;
but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen booklet self-contained he finally selected to not do
so. He did choose to omit
27, entitled Thefundamental crew.
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 studying of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)
against manuscript 2 in addition to with a common dialogue of the variation to the fashion
of TEX. In such a lot respects we determined to stick to Fenchel's intentions. although, turning
the typewritten version of the manuscript into TEX helped us to make sure that the notation,
and the spelling of sure key-words, will be uniform during the ebook. additionally,
we have indicated the start and finish of an explanation within the ordinary kind of TEX.
With this TEX -manuscript I approached Walter de Gruyter in Berlin in 1992, and
to my nice aid and pride they agreed to post the manuscript of their sequence
Studies in arithmetic. i'm so much thankful for this confident and speedy response. One
particular challenge with the booklet grew to become out to be the copy of the numerous
figures that are an essential component of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at
first agreed to convey those in ultimate digital shape, yet by way of 1997 it turned transparent that he
would no longer be capable to locate the time to take action. despite the fact that, the writer provided an answer
whereby I should still bring certain drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't go away such
for Chapters IV and V), after which they might set up the construction of the figures in
electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his high quality
collaboration about the genuine construction of the figures.
My colleague Bent Fuglede, who has personaHy identified either authors, has kindly
written a quick biography of the 2 of them and their mathematical achievements,
and which additionally locations the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript in its right viewpoint. In
this connection i want to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and
Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this e-book reproductions of images of the 2
authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.
Since the manuscript makes use of a few specific symbols, an inventory of notation with brief
explanations and connection with the particular definition within the e-book has been incorporated. additionally,
a complete index has been additional. In either instances, all references are to sections,
We thought of including an entire checklist of references, yet made up our minds opposed to it because of
the overwhelming variety of study papers during this quarter. as an alternative, a far shorter
list of monographs and different finished bills correct to the topic has been
My ultimate and such a lot honest thank you visit Dr. Manfred Karbe from Walter de Gruyter
for his commitment and perseverance in bringing this e-book into life.
This e-book is anxious with statistical research at the certain manifolds, the Stiefel manifold and the Grassmann manifold, taken care of as statistical pattern areas inclusive of matrices. the previous is represented through the set of m x ok matrices whose columns are collectively orthogonal k-variate vectors of unit size, and the latter by way of the set of m x m orthogonal projection matrices idempotent of rank okay.
