Complex Numbers and Geometry (MAA Spectrum Series)

The aim of this e-book is to illustrate that advanced numbers and geometry should be combined jointly fantastically. This leads to effortless proofs and average generalizations of many theorems in aircraft geometry, akin to the Napoleon theorem, the Ptolemy-Euler theorem, the Simson theorem, and the Morley theorem.

Remark I : We note the contrast in the hypotheses of the two domain monotonicity theorems for eigenvalues, the addition of vanishing Neumann data requiring a complete partition of M. To employ this result in a fixed geometric setting, with good choices of Q,, . ,R , one requires a priori some knowledge of the decomposability of M . 3. DEFINITION 6. Let f: M -+ R E Co. Then the nodal set o f f is the set f-'[O], and a nodal domain off is a component on M\f-'[O]. COURANT'S NODAL DOMAIN THEOREM. Let (79) be our list of eigenvalues and {& b2,.

29 2. Ton One checks that the same eigenvalues are obtained, as when only admitting real-valued functions, with the same multiplicity. To obtain a collection of eigenfunctions on T we proceed as follows: Associate to the lattice I', the dual lattice, r*,given by r * =( y ~ R " : ( ~ , y ) ~ P f o r a l l x ~ r ) . Then r*is indeed a lattice of rank n, and to the above basis {ul, . , un} of r is associated the dual basis { w , , . , w,,} of r*,determined by = 8;. (wj,uk) where 8 j k is the Kronecker delta.
