Geometric Wave Equations

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 279

Description:
In these lecture notes we discuss the solution theory of geometric wave equations as they arise in Lorentzian geometry: for a normally hyperbolic differential operator the existence and uniqueness properties of Green functions and Green operators is discussed including a detailed treatment of the Cauchy problem on a globally hyperbolic manifold both for the smooth and finite order setting.

Most of the transformations are reducible to transformations F or to transformations of the type such that a surface and a transform are focal surfaces of a W congruence. It is the purpose of this book to develop these two types of transformations.
