What is Geometric interpretation: Definition and 38 Discussions
Geometric art is a phase of Greek art, characterized largely by geometric motifs in vase painting, that flourished towards the end of the Greek Dark Ages, c. 900–700 BC. Its center was in Athens, and from there the style spread among the trading cities of the Aegean. The Greek Dark Ages lasted from c. 1100 to 750 BC and include two periods, the Protogeometric period and the Geometric period (or Geometric art), in reference to the characteristic pottery style. The vases had various uses or purposes within Greek society, including, but not limited to, funerary vases and symposium vases.
I would like to give a geometric interpretation to turbulence. Let's take into consideration for example a Poiseuille flow. The velocity profile resembles a parabolic bullet. As the particles are pushed by other layers of particles, then it must be that in addition to their translation, they...
One of the paradoxical principles in Quantum Physics is the principle of quantum superposition, since in quantum theory we are not really talking about the superposition of waves or oscillations, but about the superposition of states.
A classic example demonstrating the phenomenon of quantum...
I read this article History of James Clerk Maxwell and it talks about Maxwell and Dirac also at some point. It is said that Maxwell thought geometrically, and also Dirac said he thought of de Sitter Space geometrically. They say their approach to mathematics is geometric. I see this mentioned...

Which is the geometric interpretation of the following maps?
$$v\mapsto \begin{pmatrix} 0&-1&0\\ 1&0&0\\ 0&0&-1\end{pmatrix}v$$ and $$v\mapsto \begin{pmatrix} 1& 0&0\\0&\frac{1}{2} &-\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\\ 0&\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}&\frac{1}{2}\end{pmatrix}v$$
Good day everybody,
I'm currently working on the Grover algorithm. You can also illustrate this process geometrically and that's exactly what I have a question for.
In my literary literature one obtains a uniform superposition by applying the Hadamard transformation to N-qubits. So far that's...

Hi all. So to start I'll say I'm just dealing with functions of a real variable.
In my linear algebra courses one thing was drilled into my head: "Algebraic invariants are geometric objects"

Since there is a zero-row, we conclude that the column vectors are linearly dependent.

Hello, I was just wondering if there is a geometric interpretation of the trace in the same way that the determinant is the volume of the vectors that make up a parallelepiped.
Thanks!
Is there a simple geometric interpretation of the Einstein tensor ? I know about its algebraic definitions ( i.e. via contraction of Riemann's double dual, as a combination of Ricci tensor and Ricci scalar etc etc ), but I am finding it hard to actually understand it geometrically...
z1,z2,z3 are distinct complex numbers, prove that they are the vertices of an equilateral triangle if and only if the following relation is satisfied:
z1^2+z2^2+z3^2=z1.z2+z2.z3+z3.z1
so i shall show that |z1-z2|=|z1-z3|=|z2-z3|but i do not know how to start.

I am making a Geometric model for VESPR theory, which states that valence electron pairs are mutually repulsive, and therefore adopt a position which minimizes this, which is the position at which they are farthest apart, still in their orbitals.
For example, the 2 electron pairs on either side...
The interpretation of the vector product is the area of the parallelogram with sides made up of a and b and the scalar triple product is the volume of the parallelpiped with sides a, b, and c, but what is the interpretation of the vector triple product. Is it just simply the area of the...
Good afternoon guys! I have some doubts about partial derivatives. The other day, my analytic geometry professor told us that slopes do not exist in three-dimensional space. If that's the case, then what does a partial derivative represent? Given that the derivative of a function with respect to...
The question of Solving a Pfaffian ODE can be interpreted as the question of finding the family of surfaces U = c perpendicular to a surface f generated by the vector field
$$F(x,y,z) = (P(x,y,z),Q(x,y,z),R(x,y,z))$$
At each point, the gradient of the family of surfaces U = c will either...
Orthogonal set -- Geometric interpretation
Hello,
If we have two vectors u,v then in an inner product space, they are said to be orthogonal if <u,v>=0.
Well, orthogonal means perpendicular in Euclidean space, i.e. 90 degrees. How <u,v> becomes zero.
Secondly, if I have three vectors...
Hello,
can anyone suggest a geometric interpretation of the metric tensor?
I am also interested to know how we could "derive" the metric tensor (i.e. the matrix <ai,aj>) from some geometric considerations that we impose.
Let r = √(x^2+y^2+z^2)
One can easily show that \nablar= \vec{r}/r.
But I'm having a hard time understanding what this means geometrically - who can help? :)

Hi, All:
Just curious to know if there is an interpretation for lower cohomology that is as
"nice", as that of the lower fundamental groups, i.e., Pi_0(X) =0 if X is path-connected

X is...
I was reading Tom Apostol's expostion of Euler's Summation Formula ( http://www.jstor.org/pss/2589145) and it occurred to me that it would be convenient to visualize

In that article, it arises from integration by parts:
\int_a^b f(x) dx = |_a^b x f(x)...
For a euclidean space, the interval between 2 events (one at the origin) is defined by the equation:

The graph of this equation is a circle for which all points on the circle are separated by the distance L from the origin.
For space-time, the interval between 2 events is...

Hello,
I am having hard time giving a geometric interpretation for the virtual velocity in classical mechanics, defined as:

Ax = U \Sigma V^T x
(A is an m by n matrix)
I understand the first two steps,
1) V^T takes x and expresses it in a new basis in R^n (since x is already in R^n, this is simply a rotation)
2) \Sigma takes the result of (1) and stretches it
The third step is where I'm a bit...
