Curvature Estimates for Constant Mean Curvature Surfaces in Three Manifolds by Sirong Zhang A dissertation submitted to the Johns Hopkins University in conformity with the requirements for the degree of ial normal bundle in a complete three manifold M. g is the Riemannian met-. Special cases of manifolds are the curves and the surfaces and these were quite well understood. B. Riemann was the first to note that the low dimensional ideas of his time were particular aspects of a higher dimensional world. The first chapter of this book introduces the reader to the concept of smooth manifold through. Summary. From the coauthor of Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces, this companion book presents the extension of differential geometry from curves and surfaces to manifolds in provides a broad introduction to the field of differentiable and Riemannian manifolds, tying together the classical and modern formulations.

Perhaps Author: Marc Lackenby. Normal surface theory, a tool to represent surfaces in a triangulated 3-manifold combinatorially, is ubiquitous in computational 3-manifold theory. In this paper, we investigate a relaxed notion of normal surfaces where we remove the quadrilateral conditions.

This yields normal surfaces that are no longer embedded. We prove that it is NP-hard to decide whether such a surface is. tive of normal surfaces. We begin with an overview of manifolds before exploring 3-manifolds in more depth.

We will be focusing on 3-manifolds much the same way we looked at 2-manifolds (surfaces). A basic example of a 3-Manifold: R3 is a 3-manifold because every point in R3 is contained in an open ball in R3.

Our study of 3-Manifolds will bene t greatly by making sure we have a strong standing in surfaces. Abstract. We survey the status of some decision problems for 3-mani-folds and their fundamental groups.

This includes the classical decision problems for nitely presented groups (Word Problem, Conjugacy Prob-lem, Isomorphism Problem), and also the Homeomorphism Problem for 3-manifolds and the Membership Problem for 3-manifold groups. Introduction.

The set of all normal surfaces in a 3-manifold is a partial monoid under addition with a minimal generating set of fundamental surfaces. The available algorithm for finding the system of fundamental surfaces is of a theoretical nature and admits no implementation in by: 2.

Tu's book is definitely a great book to read for someone who doesn't know the first thing about manifolds. I have sampled many books on manifold theory and Tu's seems the friendliest.

The most illuminating aspect of it, for me at least, is the fact that it presents the basics of differential and integral calculus on $\mathbb{R}^n$ in a.

In particular, note that if a closed surface Σ admits a Riemannian metric of area A and constant curvature K, then it follows from the Gauss–Bonnet theorem, that K A = 2πχ(Σ).

The second part, chapters 10 is an attempt to remedy the notorious absence in the original book of any treatment of surfaces in three-space, an omission all the more unforgivable in that surfaces are some of the most common geometrical objects, not only in mathematics but in many branches of by: The Virtually Fibred Conjecture, and related problems.

For a weaker definition of 3-manifold topology, I think the Andrews-Curtis conjecture is a key problem. Also, anything which relates to the classification of non-simply-connected topological 4-manifolds, for instance problems related to knot and link concordance.

Many problems about 3–manifolds are solved using the concepts of incompressible surfaces and hierarchies due to Haken, and practical algorithms for decision problems use the theory of normal surfaces.

The exposition begins with the definition of a manifold, explores possible additional structures on manifolds, discusses the classification of surfaces, introduces key foundational results for.

In this section we consider the existence of certain interesting surfaces in Dehn fillings of a knot-manifold X.
