Best geometry and topology books

Discrete differential geometry is an lively mathematical terrain the place differential geometry and discrete geometry meet and engage. It offers discrete equivalents of the geometric notions and techniques of differential geometry, similar to notions of curvature and integrability for polyhedral surfaces.

Since λ ∈ Lη , we have λ η < ∞. Using the Novikov property of λ and the injectivity of ω : Γ → R again, we ﬁnd t0 ∈ R so that 1 − λ η +tω < 1 for all t t0 . Since L1η +tω is a Banach algebra, k 0 (1 − λ)k will converge and λ−1 ∈ Λω ∩ L1η +tω for all t t0 . + Recall that we have a bijection exp : Λ+ ω → 1 + Λω . 3. Suppose λ ∈ Λ+ ω and exp(λ) ∈ Lη . Then, there exists t0 ∈ R so that λ ∈ 1 Λω ∩ Lη +tω for all t t0 . Proof. 2 using log(1 − µ) = − µk k>0 k . 6. 6) in terms of closed trajectories under some assumptions.
