About this item

Japanese geometers introduce global affine hypersurface theory to students who have a basic knowledge of Euclidean differential geometry (curves and hypersurfaces) and Riemannian geometry. This second edition incorporates developments in the field during the 20 years since the first. It covers preliminaries and basic structural aspects, local equiaffine hypersurface theory, affine hyperspheres, rigidity and uniqueness theorems, variational problems and affine maximal surfaces, hypersurfaces with constant affine Gauss-Kronecker curvature, and geometric inequalities. Appendices review basic concepts in differential geometry and Laplacian comparison theorem. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
