Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: "The problem of classification of N-orthogonal coordinate systems and Riemainan spaces of diagonal curvature"

Presented by Vladimir Zakharov (Moscow),

10 December 2001 13:00 in CM221

"The Method of Inverse Scattering Transform is applied for solution of the classical problems of Differential Geometry.The main result is complete solution of the problem of description of N-othogonal curvilinear coordinate systems in the Eucledean space,formulated in 1813. Natural generalization of the method makes possible to describe N-orthogonal coordinate systems in the symmetric spaces and in the spaces of flat connection. Appliations to the General Relativity are discussed."
