Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry in N Dimensions: An by Abraham Albert Ungar

By Abraham Albert Ungar

The inspiration of the Euclidean simplex is necessary within the research of n-dimensional Euclidean geometry. This booklet introduces for the 1st time the idea that of hyperbolic simplex as a major thought in n-dimensional hyperbolic geometry.

Following the emergence of his gyroalgebra in 1988, the writer crafted gyrolanguage, the algebraic language that sheds traditional mild on hyperbolic geometry and particular relativity. a number of authors have effectively hired the author’s gyroalgebra of their exploration for novel effects. Françoise Chatelin famous in her publication, and in different places, that the computation language of Einstein defined during this publication performs a common computational position, which extends a long way past the area of detailed relativity.

This ebook will inspire researchers to exploit the author’s novel suggestions to formulate their very own effects. The publication presents new mathematical tools, such as hyperbolic simplexes, for the research of hyperbolic geometry in n dimensions. It also presents a brand new examine Einstein’s distinctive relativity thought.

6. The Einstein gyroparallelogram law of gyrovector addition. Let A, B, C ∈ Rns be any three points of an Einstein gyrovector space (Rns, ⊕, ⊗), giving rise to the two gyrovectors u = A⊕B and v = A⊕C. Furthermore, let D be a point of the gyrovector space such that ABDC is a gyroparallelogram, that is, D = (B ⊞ C) A by Def. 2, p. 174, of the gyroparallelogram. Then, Einstein coaddition of gyrovectors u and v, u ⊞ v = w, expresses the gyroparallelogram law, where w = A⊕D. Einstein coaddition, ⊞, thus gives rise to the gyroparallelogram addition law of Einsteinian velocities, which is commutative and fully analogous to the parallelogram addition law of Newtonian velocities.

62) gyr[u, v]( v⊕u) (4) === v⊕u for all u, v ∈ Rns. 62) follows: 1) Follows from the result that w = −w, so that || w|| = || − w|| = ||w|| for all w ∈ Rns. 7), p. 25, of Einstein addition. 3) Follows from the gyrocommutative law of Einstein addition. 59), gyrations keep the norm invariant. z = 0. 53) with w = z, gyr[u, v]z = z. 63) we say that the gyration axis in Rn of the gyration gyr[u, v] : Rn → Rn, generated by u, v ∈ Rns, 38 Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry in N Dimensions is parallel to the vector z.

10) that signaled the emergence of the link between hyperbolic geometry and special relativity. It was first studied by Sommerfeld [101] and Varičak [139, 140] in terms of rapidities, a term coined by Robb [93]. 14) s then the gamma factor γv of v ∈ Rns is related to the rapidity ϕv of v by cosh ϕv = γv ||v|| sinh ϕv = γv . 15) s The gamma identity plays in hyperbolic geometry a role analogous to the role that the law of cosines plays in Euclidean geometry, as we will see in Sect. 3, p. 218. 10) formed the first link between special relativity and the hyperbolic geometry of Lobachevsky and Bolyai.
