Discontinuous Groups of Isometries in the Hyperbolic Plane by Werner Fenchel, Jakob Nielsen, Asmus L. Schmidt

By Werner Fenchel, Jakob Nielsen, Asmus L. Schmidt

This booklet via Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had
a lengthy and intricate heritage. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a chain of lectures on
discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean aircraft, and this led him - in the course of
World battle II - to write down the 1st chapters of the e-book (in German). whilst Fenchel,
who needed to get away from Denmark to Sweden end result of the German profession,
returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what grew to become recognized
as the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript. at the moment they have been either on the Technical
University in Copenhagen. the 1st draft of the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript (now
in English) was once complete in 1948 and it was once deliberate to be released within the Princeton
Mathematical sequence. even though, as a result fast improvement of the topic, they felt
that tremendous alterations needed to be made sooner than e-book.
When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen college in 1951 (where he stayed till
1955), he was once a lot concerned with the foreign association UNESCO, and the
further writing of the manuscript used to be left to Fenchel. The records of Fenchel now
deposited and catalogued on the division of arithmetic at Copenhagen Univer-
sity comprise unique manuscripts: a partial manuscript (manuscript zero) in Ger-
man containing Chapters I-II (

I -15), and a whole manuscript (manuscript I) in
English containing Chapters I-V (

1-27). The data additionally comprise a part of a corre-
spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place
Nielsen makes exact reviews to Fenchel's writings of Chapters III-V. Fenchel,
who succeeded N. E. Nf/Jrlund at Copenhagen collage in 1956 (and stayed there
until 1974), was once a great deal concerned with an intensive revision of the curriculum in al-
gebra and geometry, and focused his learn within the idea of convexity, heading
the overseas Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly twenty years
he additionally positioned a lot attempt into his task as editor of the newly began magazine Mathematica
Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this job left him little time to complete the
Fenchel-Nielsen undertaking the best way he desired to.
After his retirement from the college, Fenchel - assisted via Christian Sieben-
eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - stumbled on time to
finish the booklet ordinary Geometry in Hyperbolic area, which used to be released by means of
Walter de Gruyter in 1989 almost immediately after his demise. at the same time, and with a similar
collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on
discontinuous teams, removal a number of the vague issues that have been within the unique
manuscript. Fenchel instructed me that he meditated removal components of the introductory
Chapter I within the manuscript, considering this is able to be lined through the ebook pointed out above;
but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen ebook self-contained he finally selected to not do
so. He did choose to omit
27, entitled Thefundamental staff.

As editor, i began in 1990, with the consent of the criminal heirs of Fenchel and
Nielsen, to supply a TEX-version from the newly typewritten model (manuscript 2).
I am thankful to Dita Andersen and Lise Fuldby-Olsen in my division for hav-
ing performed a superb task of typing this manuscript in AMS- TEX. i've got additionally had
much support from my colleague J0rn B0rling Olsson (himself a scholar of Kate Fenchel
at Aarhus collage) with the facts studying of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)
against manuscript 2 in addition to with a common dialogue of the difference to the fashion
of TEX. In such a lot respects we determined to stick with Fenchel's intentions. in spite of the fact that, turning
the typewritten variation of the manuscript into TEX helped us to make sure that the notation,
and the spelling of definite key-words, will be uniform in the course of the e-book. additionally,
we have indicated the start and finish of an evidence within the ordinary form of TEX.
With this TEX -manuscript I approached Walter de Gruyter in Berlin in 1992, and
to my nice reduction and pride they agreed to submit the manuscript of their sequence
Studies in arithmetic. i'm such a lot thankful for this optimistic and speedy response. One
particular challenge with the e-book became out to be the replica of the numerous
figures that are an essential component of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at
first agreed to bring those in ultimate digital shape, yet by way of 1997 it grew to become transparent that he
would no longer be ready to locate the time to take action. despite the fact that, the writer provided an answer
whereby I may still convey unique drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't go away such
for Chapters IV and V), after which they'd arrange the creation of the figures in
electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his superb
collaboration in regards to the real construction of the figures.
My colleague Bent Fuglede, who has personaHy recognized either authors, has kindly
written a brief biography of the 2 of them and their mathematical achievements,
and which additionally areas the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript in its right standpoint. In
this connection i want to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and
Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this ebook reproductions of images of the 2
authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.
Since the manuscript makes use of a few specified symbols, an inventory of notation with brief
explanations and connection with the particular definition within the publication has been incorporated. additionally,
a finished index has been further. In either situations, all references are to sections,
not pages.
We thought of including a whole checklist of references, yet determined opposed to it because of
the overwhelming variety of study papers during this zone. as a substitute, a miles shorter
list of monographs and different accomplished money owed appropriate to the topic has been
collected.
My ultimate and such a lot honest thank you visit Dr. Manfred Karbe from Walter de Gruyter
for his commitment and perseverance in bringing this ebook into lifestyles.
