  • Potential forms. Closed forms that are not potential. Invariance of the integrals of closed forms over loops under the deformation of the loops.
  • Example:
    $$
    \omega=\frac{(x-a) dy-(y-b) dx}{(x-a)^2+(y-b)^2}:
    $$
    Winding numbers around \((a,b)\).

Math 487, midterm, solutions

\(\def\Real{\mathbb{R}} \def\image{\mathtt{Im}}\)

  1. [10] Find the dimensions of image and kernel for the operator \(A:\Real^5\to\Real^4\) given by the matrix
    $$
    A=\left(\begin{array}{ccccc}
    0&1&2&3&4\\
    1&2&3&4&5\\
    2&3&4&5&6\\
    3&4&5&6&7
    \end{array}\right).
    $$

    If one chooses the basis
    $$
    e’_1=e_1, e’_2=e_2, e’_3=e_3-2e_2+e_1,e’_4=e_4-2e_3+e_2,e’_5=e_5-2e_4+e_3,
    $$
    one sees immediately, that

Fact of the day: Brownian centroids

\(\def\Real{\mathbb{R}}\def\Z{\mathcal{Z}}\def\sg{\mathfrak{S}}\def\B{\mathbf{B}}\def\xx{\mathbf{x}}\def\ex{\mathbb{E}}
\)

Consider \(n\) points in Euclidean space, \(\xx=\{x_1,\ldots, x_n\}, x_k\in \Real^d, n\leq d+1\).

Generically, there is a unique sphere in the affine space spanned by those points, containing all of them. This centroid (which we will denote as \(o(x_1,\ldots,x_n)\)) …
