From the stories of the 1st printing, released as quantity 23 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences:
"This volume... contains papers. the 1st, written by way of V.V.Shokurov, is dedicated to the idea of Riemann surfaces and algebraic curves. it's a good review of the idea of kinfolk among Riemann surfaces and their versions - advanced algebraic curves in advanced projective areas. ... the second one paper, written via V.I.Danilov, discusses algebraic forms and schemes. ...
i will suggest the publication as a good creation to the fundamental algebraic geometry."
European Mathematical Society publication, 1996
"... To sum up, this publication is helping to benefit algebraic geometry very quickly, its concrete kind is pleasing for college students and divulges the wonderful thing about mathematics."

This booklet through Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had
a lengthy and complex background. 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 battle II - to jot down the 1st chapters of the e-book (in German). while Fenchel,
who needed to break out from Denmark to Sweden as a result of the German profession,
returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what grew to become identified
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. besides the fact that, because of the speedy improvement of the topic, they felt
that giant alterations needed to be made earlier than e-book.
When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen collage in 1951 (where he stayed till
1955), he was once a lot concerned with the foreign association UNESCO, and the
further writing of the manuscript was once left to Fenchel. The records 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 a whole manuscript (manuscript I) in
English containing Chapters I-V (
1-27). The files additionally comprise a part of a corre-
spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place
Nielsen makes distinct 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), was once greatly concerned with an intensive revision of the curriculum in al-
gebra and geometry, and centred his learn 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 all started magazine Mathematica
Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this task left him little time to complete the
Fenchel-Nielsen undertaking the best way he desired to.
After his retirement from the college, Fenchel - assisted by means of Christian Sieben-
eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - stumbled on time to
finish the publication uncomplicated Geometry in Hyperbolic house, which was once released through
Walter de Gruyter in 1989 almost immediately after his dying. at the same time, and with a similar
collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on
discontinuous teams, removal a number of the imprecise issues that have been within the unique
manuscript. Fenchel instructed me that he pondered removal components of the introductory
Chapter I within the manuscript, for the reason that this could be lined by means of the e-book pointed out above;
but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen booklet self-contained he eventually selected to not do
so. He did choose to pass over
27, entitled Thefundamental team.
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 collage) with the facts analyzing of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)
against manuscript 2 in addition to with a basic dialogue of the difference to the fashion
of TEX. In so much respects we determined to stick with Fenchel's intentions. in spite of the fact that, 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 publication. additionally,
we have indicated the start and finish of an explanation within the ordinary sort of TEX.
With this TEX -manuscript I approached Walter de Gruyter in Berlin in 1992, and
to my nice reduction and delight they agreed to submit the manuscript of their sequence
Studies in arithmetic. i'm such a lot thankful for this optimistic and speedy response. One
particular challenge with the e-book became out to be the replica of the numerous
figures that are an essential component of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at
first agreed to bring those in ultimate digital shape, yet by means of 1997 it turned transparent that he
would now not be capable to locate the time to take action. despite the fact that, the writer provided an answer
whereby I should still carry specified drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't depart such
for Chapters IV and V), after which they'd arrange the construction of the figures in
electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his positive
collaboration in regards to the real creation 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 areas the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript in its right point of view. In
this connection i want to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and
Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this ebook reproductions of photos of the 2
authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.
Since the manuscript makes use of a few unique symbols, an inventory of notation with brief
explanations and connection with the particular definition within the publication has been incorporated. additionally,
a finished index has been additional. In either situations, all references are to sections,
We thought of including a whole checklist of references, yet determined opposed to it as a result of
the overwhelming variety of study papers during this quarter. as an alternative, a far shorter
list of monographs and different finished bills suitable 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 ebook into lifestyles.
This publication is anxious with statistical research at the specified manifolds, the Stiefel manifold and the Grassmann manifold, taken care of as statistical pattern areas including matrices. the previous is represented via the set of m x okay matrices whose columns are together orthogonal k-variate vectors of unit size, and the latter through the set of m x m orthogonal projection matrices idempotent of rank ok.

A differential w E Ai is said to be closed if dw = O. Differentials of the form dw (for some w E Ai) are said to be exact or cohomologically trivial. ) Every exact form is closed. Hence the exact i-forms constitute a complex vector subspace of the space of closed i-forms. The corresponding quotient space is denoted by HbR(S) and called the de Rham cohomology group. Example 1. A function f E AD is closed if and only if it is constant. Therefore H~R(S) '::::' C. On the other hand, f is 8-closed, that is, 8f = 0, if and only if it is holomorphic (see the Example in Sect.
