Collection of charged line segments in 2D - where do electric field lines meet it?

Suppose we have a collection of charged line segments in 2D. I'd like to be able to do two things : from an arbitrary point in the plane, follow the electric field and find where it meets the ...

Conformal-symplectic geometry ?

I think in priciple it's possible to consider a theory of "conformal-symplectic manifolds", in an analogous fashion as the usual conformal geometry. To spell out the spontaneous definitions: say ...

Is there a manifold structure on a space of conformal maps?

I would be very grateful for any information or pointers for the following: 1) Fix an open subset $U$ of $\mathbb{CP}^1$. a) Does the set of all holomorphic maps from $U$ to $\mathbb{C}$ (with the ...

Errata in “Conformal Mapping: Method and Applications” from Schinzinger

hi, i'm studying the book "Conformal Mapping: Method and Applications" from Schinzinger and more precisely the chapter 6 concerning non-planar field. In section 6.1.3 the author proposes to solve a ...

Invariance of the cylindrical Laplace equation under conformal transform

hello, it is often said that a conformal mapping preserves the Laplace equetion in 2D. However, if this is true for the cartesian coordinates (x,y), where the laplacian is: $$ \frac{\partial^2 ...

A question about the proof of Mostow rigidity

I have recently been studying a proof of Mostow rigidity (along the lines of Mostow's original argument), and I'm left a little confused about something. We start with an isomorphism $\alpha: \Gamma ...

Analogy of Liouville conformal mapping theorem with Mostow rigidity?

I often hear mention of two theorems, Mostow's rigidity theorem and Liouville's theorem on conformal mappings, which superficially sound similar: they say that a set of geometric structures is, if ...

Intuition behind moduli space of curves

For a genus g compact smooth surface $M$, an algebraic structure is the same as a complex structure is the same as a conformal structure. So the moduli space of smooth curves should be the same as the ...
