The Nordic summer time institution 1985 offered to younger researchers the mathematical elements of the continuing examine stemming from the research of box theories in physics and the differential geometry of fibre bundles in arithmetic. the amount contains papers, frequently with unique traces of assault, on twistor tools for harmonic maps, the differential geometric features of Yang-Mills thought, advanced differential geometry, metric differential geometry and partial differential equations in differential geometry. lots of the papers are of lasting price and supply an exceptional advent to their topic.

**Designing fair curves and surfaces: shape quality in geometric modeling and computer-aided design**

This cutting-edge learn of the recommendations used for designing curves and surfaces for computer-aided layout purposes specializes in the main that reasonable shapes are constantly freed from unessential beneficial properties and are easy in layout. The authors outline equity mathematically, show how newly constructed curve and floor schemes warrantly equity, and help the person in picking out and elimination form aberrations in a floor version with out destroying the critical form features of the version.

On the other hand, the four points of intersection, other than A and A*, of the asymptotic tangents of the surfaces S, S* at the points A, A* lie on two lines through the point P, namely, (10) x2 ± (lf^) "22^33/ x4 = 0, x3 = 0. 719 PROJECTIVE INVARIANTS From equations (9), (10) it follows at once that the cross-ratio of the four lines t, t*, (10), (9) is equal to (11) ±(±1)*(^) 1/4 ) = ±(±l)i71/4. (o, », J^f, \ \t22^33' \ ''11^22/ / Hence we obtain the following projectively geometrical characterization of the invariant I: Let S, S* be two surfaces in ordinary space having a common tangent plane at two ordinary points A, A*; t, t* the harmonic conjugate lines of AA* respectively with respect to the asymptotic tangents of the surfaces S, S* at the points A, A*; P the point of intersection of the tangents t, t*; and s any one of the two lines through the point P on which lie the four points of intersection, other than A and A*, of the asymptotic tangents of the surfaces S, S* at the points A, A*.

K2 and Kf may be respectively written as (7) and (40) The equations of af2Xi + atxxx3 — afx2x3 + k*x\ = 0, where k* is an arbitrary constant. From equations (7) and (40) it follows immediately that the equation of the four lines joining Ol to the four intersections of K2 and Kf is (41) a\x\ + 2a2x\x3 + • • • = 0 , the unwritten terms being of at least order 2 in x3 . It is easily seen that the polar line of any point on Oi0 2 with respect to the four lines denned by equation (41) is the line (8).

Let the polar spaces of the line 00* with respect to the asymptotic hypercones of the hypersurfaces F»_i, V*-\ a t the points 0, 0* be respectively denoted by /„_2, /n*-2, which determine a space tn-3 of n — 3 dimensions in the common tangent hyperplane x B + 1 = 0 . If the n — 2 vertices, other than 0 and 0*, of the system of reference in the hyperplane *n+i = 0 be chosen in the space tn-s, then the invariant / may be reduced to i n n / > » i l \ (n-2)/J (9) where Lnn, Mu are the minors of lnn, mu in the determinants L, M respectively.
