Define this set of power curves bounded above by a given geometric curve and below by y = 1

Let $f(x) = 1/(1-x)$, with $x$ a real number in $[0, 1]$ and $f(x)$ a real number in $[1, \infty]$. This is clearly part of a geometric curve, as well as part of a branch of a hyperbola with ...

Curvature tensor of interpolation of two metrics

Let $\hat{g}$ and $\bar{g}$ be two smooth Riemannian metrics defined, say, on $\mathbb{R}^n.$ Consider a smooth function $\xi$ that acts as an interpolation function between the two metrics above on ...

A name for a mathematical structure of geometric type

I am looking for (maybe existing) name for a mathematical structure $(X,\leqslant)$ consisting of a set $X$ and a transitive relation ${\leqslant}\subseteq X^2\times X^2$ such that $xx\leqslant yz\...

What is the relationship between $\mathrm{SO}(2)$ and $\mathrm{PSL}(2,\mathbb{R})$?

$\DeclareMathOperator\SO{SO}\DeclareMathOperator\PSL{PSL}\DeclareMathOperator\R{\mathbb{R}}$The holonomy of a hyperbolic surface $S$ in terms of differential geometry is either $\SO(2)$ or $\mathrm{O}(...

Failure of the Jacobi identity

So I'm facing a problem of physical origin which I'd like to understand on a geometric background. I have a long, tedious bivector involving functional derivatives. I write what it would be the ...

Why is generalised complex structure defined to be a reduction of structure group to $O(n,n) \cap Gl(n,\mathbb{C})$?

It is a basic and "intuition request" question. I have asked it on StackExchange yet it is probably to specialized for it since there were no answears. Generalised complex structure is defined to be ...

Gromov Geometric Structures and Killing fields

Let's fix some notations: $M$ will denote a real smooth, $m$-dimensional, manifold, $F^k(M)$ is the k-th order frame bundle on $M$ and $Gl^k(m)$ is the space of $k$-jets of diffeomorphisms of $\mathbb ...

What criteria are there to determine if two projective varieties are projectively equivalent?

A projective transformation is a morphism of $P^n$ to $P^n$, for some $n$, determined by an $(n + 1) \times (n + 1)$ invertible matrix $A$ in the obvious way. The sets $Q$, $R$ are projectively ...

"Softness" vs "rigidity" in Geometry

According to common wisdom, there are structures in Geometry that have a more "topological" flavor, others that are more "geometrical", and others that are halfway between. Usually,...

Non Smooth K3 surface?

Hi, My question is related to Algebraic Surfaces. I have seen that we always consider K3 surfaces which are smooth, but I wonder how can we define a non-smooth K3 surface. The problem I see is on ...

Of what kind of complemented bounded poset are the structures in my quasi-variety?

I feel that my question is very basic, but, somewhat suprisingly, nobody was able to give me an answer so far: Let $\mathbf{M} := \langle \{ 0,1 \}, 0, 1, \leq, \neg \rangle$ be the structure with ...

Möbius and projective 3-manifolds

A projective 3-manifold is a smooth manifold that admits an atlas with values in the real projective 3-space such that all transition maps are restrictions of projective transformations. A Möbius 3-...
