Konrad Schöbel goals to put the principles for a consequent algebraic geometric remedy of variable Separation, that's one of many oldest and strongest the way to build targeted suggestions for the elemental equations in classical and quantum physics. the current paintings unearths a stunning algebraic geometric constitution at the back of the recognized checklist of separation coordinates, bringing jointly an exceptional diversity of arithmetic and mathematical physics, from the overdue nineteenth century thought of separation of variables to fashionable moduli area concept, Stasheff polytopes and operads.

"I am quite inspired by means of his mastery of a number of recommendations and his skill to teach in actual fact how they have interaction to supply his results.” (Jim Stasheff)

This booklet by means of Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had

a lengthy and intricate heritage. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a sequence of lectures on

discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean aircraft, and this led him - in the course of

World warfare II - to jot down the 1st chapters of the booklet (in German). while Fenchel,

who needed to get away from Denmark to Sweden due to the German career,

returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what turned 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 accomplished in 1948 and it was once deliberate to be released within the Princeton

Mathematical sequence. even though, because of the speedy improvement of the topic, they felt

that colossal alterations needed to be made prior to e-book.

When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen college in 1951 (where he stayed till

1955), he was once a lot concerned with the foreign association UNESCO, and the

further writing of the manuscript was once left to Fenchel. The documents of Fenchel now

deposited and catalogued on the division of arithmetic at Copenhagen Univer-

sity comprise unique manuscripts: a partial manuscript (manuscript zero) in Ger-

man containing Chapters I-II (

I -15), and an entire manuscript (manuscript I) in

English containing Chapters I-V (

1-27). The records additionally comprise a part of a corre-

spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place

Nielsen makes precise reviews to Fenchel's writings of Chapters III-V. Fenchel,

who succeeded N. E. Nf/Jrlund at Copenhagen collage in 1956 (and stayed there

until 1974), used to be greatly concerned with an intensive revision of the curriculum in al-

gebra and geometry, and targeted his examine within the thought of convexity, heading

the foreign Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly twenty years

he additionally positioned a lot attempt into his activity as editor of the newly begun 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 college, Fenchel - assisted through Christian Sieben-

eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - discovered time to

finish the ebook hassle-free Geometry in Hyperbolic house, which was once released by way of

Walter de Gruyter in 1989 presently after his dying. concurrently, and with an analogous

collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on

discontinuous teams, elimination a few of the vague issues that have been within the unique

manuscript. Fenchel informed me that he meditated removal elements of the introductory

Chapter I within the manuscript, seeing that this may be lined via the publication pointed out above;

but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen booklet self-contained he finally selected to not do

so. He did choose to omit

27, entitled Thefundamental workforce.

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 an excellent task of typing this manuscript in AMS- TEX. i've got additionally had

much support from my colleague J0rn B0rling Olsson (himself a pupil of Kate Fenchel

at Aarhus college) with the evidence studying of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)

against manuscript 2 in addition to with a normal dialogue of the variation to the fashion

of TEX. In such a lot respects we determined to keep on with Fenchel's intentions. although, turning

the typewritten variation of the manuscript into TEX helped us to make sure that the notation,

and the spelling of yes key-words, will be uniform in the course of the ebook. additionally,

we have indicated the start and finish of an explanation 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 pride they agreed to put up the manuscript of their sequence

Studies in arithmetic. i'm so much thankful for this confident and speedy response. One

particular challenge with the booklet became out to be the copy of the numerous

figures that are an essential component of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at

first agreed to carry those in ultimate digital shape, yet by way of 1997 it turned transparent that he

would no longer have the capacity to locate the time to take action. despite the fact that, the writer provided an answer

whereby I should still carry unique drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't go away such

for Chapters IV and V), after which they might manage the creation of the figures in

electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his wonderful

collaboration about the genuine creation 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 point of view. In

this connection i need to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and

Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this ebook reproductions of pictures of the 2

authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.

Since the manuscript makes use of a couple of distinctive symbols, an inventory of notation with brief

explanations and connection with the particular definition within the e-book has been incorporated. additionally,

a entire index has been further. In either circumstances, all references are to sections,

not pages.

We thought of including a whole checklist of references, yet determined opposed to it because of

the overwhelming variety of learn papers during this sector. in its place, a miles shorter

list of monographs and different complete debts correct to the topic has been

collected.

My ultimate and so much honest thank you visit Dr. Manfred Karbe from Walter de Gruyter

for his commitment and perseverance in bringing this booklet into life.

For compactness of notation, let us denote just in this proof the covariant derivative of Kαβ by Kαβ,γ instead of ∇γ Kαβ . A Killing tensor is symmetric by deﬁnition. e. K α β = λα δ α β (no sum). 2) reads Nαβγ = (λα − λβ )Kα[β,γ] . 3) we get 0 = N δ[βγ gα]δ = 0 = N δ[βγ Kα]δ = α β γ α β γ Nαβγ = α β γ λα Nαβγ = 0 = N δ[βγ Kα]ε K εδ = α β γ (λα − λβ )Kαβ,γ α β γ λα (λα − λβ )Kαβ,γ λ2α Nαβγ = α β γ λ2α (λα − λβ )Kαβ,γ .

We will write Greek indices α, β, γ, . . for local coordinates on M (ranging from 1 to n) and Latin indices a, b, c, . . for components in V (ranging from 0 to n). We can then denote both, the inner product on V as well as the induced metric on M , by the same letter g and distinguish them only via the type of indices. Consequently, Latin indices are raised and lowered using gab and greek ones using gαβ . 4b) where we regard the components xa of x ∈ V as functions on M ⊂ V by restriction. 3).
