This e-book explores the newest advancements within the concept of planar quasiconformal mappings with a selected concentrate on the interactions with partial differential equations and nonlinear research. It offers an intensive and sleek method of the classical concept and offers vital and compelling functions throughout a spectrum of arithmetic: dynamical structures, singular fundamental operators, inverse difficulties, the geometry of mappings, and the calculus of adaptations. It additionally provides an account of contemporary advances in harmonic research and their purposes within the geometric idea of mappings.

The ebook explains that the lifestyles, regularity, and singular set buildings for second-order divergence-type equations--the most vital type of PDEs in applications--are made up our minds via the math underpinning the geometry, constitution, and measurement of fractal units; moduli areas of Riemann surfaces; and conformal dynamical structures. those themes are inextricably associated by means of the idea of quasiconformal mappings. additional, the interaction among them permits the authors to increase classical effects to extra common settings for wider applicability, supplying new and infrequently optimum solutions to questions of life, regularity, and geometric houses of options to nonlinear structures in either elliptic and degenerate elliptic settings.

Green’s Formula) Let Ω be a bounded domain with boundary ∂Ω consisting of a finite number of disjoint and rectifiable Jordan curves. Suppose that f , g ∈ W 1,1 (Ω) ∩ C(Ω). 52) ∂Ω For smooth functions this is just the usual Green’s formula dressed in complex notation. The general case follows by approximation. 53) Here we have assumed that Ω is bounded, with ∂Ω a finite union of rectifiable Jordan curves, and φ ∈ W 1,1 (Ω) ∩ C(Ω) Another immediate consequence of Green’s formula concerns the integral of the Jacobian derivative J(z, f ) = |fz (z)|2 − |fz¯(z)|2 .

3. 12), is isomorphic to the group P SL(2, R), the projective group of 2 × 2 matrices with real entries and determinant 1. To see this, note that the map Φ:z→i 1−z 1+z is conformal from D onto the upper half-space H = {z : m(z) > 0}. In fact, Φ is an isometry from the hyperbolic metric of the disk to the metric ds = |dz| , m(z) z ∈ H, giving us another model for the hyperbolic plane. ) transformations of H as the linear fractional transformations z→ az + b , cz + d a, b, c, d ∈ R, ad − bc = 0 Since we may multiply the numerator and denominator of this fractional transformation by any nonzero constant without affecting the transformation, we may normalize so that ad − bc = 1.

10). Let us point out simply that if G = H ≡ I, then a solution f satisfies the Cauchy-Riemann equations and therefore represents an analytic equivalence between domains. As a further example, if Ω = Ω = D, the unit disk, then the existence of solutions shows that all Riemannian metrics on D are equivalent by a conformal change of variables. However, solutions do not exist in complete generality; one needs to place restrictions on G and H, such as boundedness, to guarantee ellipticity. Further, there are topological restrictions on the domains Ω and Ω , and even when there are no topological obstructions, in multiply connected domains there are many “conformal invariants” represented by Teichm¨ uller spaces or moduli spaces.
