This booklet offers a scientific account of conformal geometry of n-manifolds, in addition to its Riemannian opposite numbers. A unifying subject matter is their discrete holonomy teams. specifically, hyperbolic manifolds, in measurement three and better, are addressed. The therapy covers additionally correct topology, algebra (including combinatorial crew thought and different types of staff representations), mathematics matters, and dynamics. development in those components has been very quickly sicne the Eighties, particularly end result of the Thurston geometrization application, resulting in the answer of many tricky difficulties. a robust attempt has been made to show new connections and views within the box and to demonstrate numerous elements of the idea. An intuitive procedure which emphasizes the tips at the back of the buildings is complemented through a good number of examples and figures which either use and help the reader's geometric mind's eye.

Scholars can depend on Moise's transparent and thorough presentation of easy geometry theorems. the writer assumes that scholars don't have any past wisdom of the topic and offers the fundamentals of geometry from the floor up. This complete method supplies teachers flexibility in instructing. for instance, a sophisticated type may perhaps development swiftly via Chapters 1-7 and commit so much of its time to the fabric provided in Chapters eight, 10, 14, 19, and 20. equally, a much less complex category may work conscientiously via Chapters 1-7, and put out of your mind the various more challenging chapters, comparable to 20 and 24.
