Description

Beyond Pseudo-Rotations in Pseudo-Euclidean Spaces presents for the first time a unified study of the Lorentz transformation group SO(m, n) of signature (m, n), m, n ∈ N, which is fully analogous to the Lorentz group SO(1, 3) of Einstein’s special theory of relativity. It is based on a novel parametric realization of pseudo-rotations by a vector-like parameter with two orientation parameters. The book is of interest to specialized researchers in the areas of algebra, geometry and mathematical physics, containing new results that suggest further exploration in these areas.

Key Features

  • Introduces the study of generalized gyrogroups and gyrovector spaces
  • Develops new algebraic structures, bi-gyrogroups and bi-gyrovector spaces
  • Helps readers to surmount boundaries between algebra, geometry and physics
  • Assists readers to parametrize and describe the full set of generalized Lorentz transformations in a geometric way
  • Generalizes approaches from gyrogroups and gyrovector spaces to bi-gyrogroups and bi-gyrovector spaces with geometric entanglement

Readership

Graduate students and exceptional undergraduate students and 1st year PhDs in hyperbolic and differential geometry, linear algebra, group theory and loop theory, and mathematical physicists
