J?rgen Jost's Nonpositive curvature: geometric and analytic aspects PDF

Discusses numerous geometric and analytic facets of non-positive curvature, beginning with Riemannian examples and stress theorems. Treats generalized notions of nonpositive curvature within the experience of Alexandrov and Busemann & the idea of harmonic maps with values in such areas. Paper.

Example text

After some examples, studentsare again asked "Do you think this method will work for any triangle? " Then studentsare given arearule cardsfor the four shapes discussed so far and asked "How can you arrange them in a family tree? " If the student found the area in other ways, he/she is askedto show the otherway it would fit into a family tree. Activity 7. Trapezoids As in the two previousactivities,this one deals with ways of findingthe areaof a particularshape,namely, a trapezoid. (a) (c) (b) Divide the figure into a rectangle and two right triangles.

Tangrams This activity provides a change of pace from work in Modules 1 and 2.

If students do not respondspontaneously,they are led to summarize the parallelism property of ladders. The same process of formulatingpropertiesis repeatedfor saws. Studentscolor in angles on the saws in the grid, summarizethe property (one set of congruent angles) on a card for later reference, and then discuss parallelism (two families of parallel lines). Finally students are asked to review the special propertiesof a saw. note: Studentswho are thinkingat level 0 can follow throughmost of this activity by looking at specific examples, but may not be able to summarize fluently.
