A geometric theory of harmonic and semi-conformal maps

Anders Kock (2004)

Open Mathematics

We describe for any Riemannian manifold M a certain scheme M L, lying in between the first and second neighbourhood of the diagonal of M. Semi-conformal maps between Riemannian manifolds are then analyzed as those maps that preserve M L; harmonic maps are analyzed as those that preserve the (Levi-Civita-) mirror image formation inside M L.

Ambiguous loci of the farthest distance mapping from compact convex sets

F. De Blasi, J. Myjak (1995)

Studia Mathematica

Let be a strictly convex separable Banach space of dimension at least 2. Let K() be the space of all nonempty compact convex subsets of endowed with the Hausdorff distance. Denote by K 0 the set of all X ∈ K() such that the farthest distance mapping a M X ( a ) is multivalued on a dense subset of . It is proved that K 0 is a residual dense subset of K().

Barbilian's metrization procedure in the plane yields either Riemannian or Lagrange generalized metrics

Wladimir G. Boskoff, Bogdan D. Suceavă (2008)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

In the present paper we answer two questions raised by Barbilian in 1960. First, we study how far can the hypothesis of Barbilian's metrization procedure can be relaxed. Then, we prove that Barbilian's metrization procedure in the plane generates either Riemannian metrics or Lagrance generalized metrics not reducible to Finslerian or Langrangian metrics.
