# Conformal Representation by C. Caratheodory By C. Caratheodory

Professor Caratheodory units out the fundamental conception of conformal representations as easily as attainable. within the early chapters on Mobius' and different basic changes and on non-Euclidean geometry, he bargains with these basic matters which are precious for an realizing of the final conception mentioned within the final chapters.

Geometric Phases in Classical and Quantum Mechanics

This paintings examines the gorgeous and significant actual idea referred to as the 'geometric phase,' bringing jointly assorted actual phenomena less than a unified mathematical and actual scheme. numerous well-established geometric and topological equipment underscore the mathematical therapy of the topic, emphasizing a coherent standpoint at a slightly subtle point.

If n is made to increase indefinitely, the Riemann surface dealt with in §56 becomes, in the limit, the Riemann surface of §57, having a logarithmic branch-point.

III transforms the cut w-plane into the u-plane cut along the negative real axis, and the further transformation u = t 2 transforms this into the halfplane Jli (t) > 0.
