Discontinuous Groups of Isometries in the Hyperbolic Plane

This booklet by way of Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had
a lengthy and intricate historical past. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a sequence of lectures on
discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean airplane, and this led him - in the course of
World conflict II - to write down the 1st chapters of the e-book (in German). while Fenchel,
who needed to get away from Denmark to Sweden as a result of the 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) was once entire in 1948 and it used to be deliberate to be released within the Princeton
Mathematical sequence. although, as a result of the swift improvement of the topic, they felt
that significant alterations needed to be made ahead of e-book.
When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen collage in 1951 (where he stayed till
1955), he used to be 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 documents additionally include a part of a corre-
spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place
Nielsen makes particular 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 targeted his study within the concept of convexity, heading
the overseas Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly two decades
he additionally placed a lot attempt into his activity as editor of the newly began magazine Mathematica
Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this job 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 - came upon time to
finish the booklet straightforward Geometry in Hyperbolic area, which used to be released through
Walter de Gruyter in 1989 almost immediately after his loss of life. at the same time, and with an analogous
collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on
discontinuous teams, removal some of the vague issues that have been within the unique
manuscript. Fenchel instructed me that he pondered elimination elements of the introductory
Chapter I within the manuscript, for the reason that this could be coated via the booklet pointed out above;
but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen publication self-contained he eventually selected to not do
so. He did choose to miss
27, entitled Thefundamental staff.

As editor, i began in 1990, with the consent of the criminal heirs of Fenchel and
Nielsen, to provide 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 a superb task of typing this manuscript in AMS- TEX. i've got additionally had
much aid 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 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 in the course of the publication. additionally,
we have indicated the start and finish of an evidence within the traditional type 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 put up the manuscript of their sequence
Studies in arithmetic. i'm such a lot thankful for this confident and speedy response. One
particular challenge with the booklet became out to be the replica of the numerous
figures that are a vital part of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at
first agreed to convey those in ultimate digital shape, yet through 1997 it turned transparent that he
would no longer be capable of locate the time to take action. in spite of the fact that, the writer provided an answer
whereby I may still bring specific drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't go away such
for Chapters IV and V), after which they'd set up the creation of the figures in
electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his nice
collaboration about the genuine construction of the figures.
My colleague Bent Fuglede, who has personaHy identified either authors, has kindly
written a brief 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 need to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and
Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this publication reproductions of photos of the 2
authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.
Since the manuscript makes use of a few exact symbols, an inventory of notation with brief
explanations and connection with the particular definition within the ebook has been incorporated. additionally,
a entire index has been extra. In either instances, all references are to sections,
not pages.
We thought of including an entire record of references, yet determined opposed to it because of
the overwhelming variety of study papers during this quarter. as a substitute, a miles shorter
list of monographs and different entire money owed 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 ebook into life.

Statistics on Special Manifolds

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

Example text

We will encounter this phenomenon again in 2. 8, in which we determine the set of M¨ obius transformations taking any circle in C A to itself. We can rephrase this argument as saying that there exists a well defined surjective function from the set T of triples of distinct points of C to the set C of circles in C. As M¨ob+ acts transitively on T , we can use this function from T to C to push down the action of M¨ ob+ from T to C. The lack of uniqueness + in the action of M¨ ob on C is a reflection of the fact that this function is not injective.

By our construction of p, we have that p ◦ m ◦ p−1 (∞) = p ◦ m(x) = p(x) = ∞. As p ◦ m ◦ p−1 fixes ∞, we can write it as p ◦ m ◦ p−1 (z) = az + b with a ̸= 0. As p ◦ m ◦ p−1 has only the one fixed point in C, namely, ∞, there is no solution in C to the equation p ◦ m ◦ p−1 (z) = z, and so it must be that a = 1. As p◦m◦p−1 (0) = p◦m(y) = 1, we see that b = 1 as well, and so p◦m◦p−1 (z) = z + 1. Therefore, any M¨ obius transformation m with only one fixed point is conjugate by a M¨ obius transformation to n(z) = z + 1.

17. 30 Show that C is not an element of M¨ob+ . 2. 18 The general M¨ obius group M¨ ob is the group generated by M¨ ob+ and C. That is, every (nontrivial) element p of M¨ ob can be expressed as a composition p = C ◦ mk ◦ · · · C ◦ m1 for some k ≥ 1, where each mk is an element of M¨ob+ . 2 are inherited by M¨ ob. That is, M¨ ob acts transitively on the set T of triples of distinct points in C, on the set C of circles in C, and on the set D of discs in C. 30. The proof that C : C → C lies in HomeoC (C) is similar to the proof that the elements of M¨ob+ lie in HomeoC (C).
