Hyperbolic Geometry and Applications in Quantum Chaos and Cosmology, Paperback Book

Hyperbolic Geometry and Applications in Quantum Chaos and Cosmology Paperback

Edited by Jens Bolte, Professor Frank Steiner

Part of the London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series series

Description

Hyperbolic geometry is a classical subject in pure mathematics which has exciting applications in theoretical physics.

In this book leading experts introduce hyperbolic geometry and Maass waveforms and discuss applications in quantum chaos and cosmology.

The book begins with an introductory chapter detailing the geometry of hyperbolic surfaces and includes numerous worked examples and exercises to give the reader a solid foundation for the rest of the book.

In later chapters the classical version of Selberg's trace formula is derived in detail and transfer operators are developed as tools in the spectral theory of Laplace-Beltrami operators on modular surfaces.

The computation of Maass waveforms and associated eigenvalues of the hyperbolic Laplacian on hyperbolic manifolds are also presented in a comprehensive way.

This book will be valuable to graduate students and young researchers, as well as for those experienced scientists who want a detailed exposition of the subject.
