The Golden Non Euclidean Geometry

Author: Alexey Stakhov
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9789814678315
Release Date: 2016-07-14
Genre: Mathematics

This unique book overturns our ideas about non-Euclidean geometry and the fine-structure constant, and attempts to solve long-standing mathematical problems. It describes a general theory of "recursive" hyperbolic functions based on the "Mathematics of Harmony," and the "golden," "silver," and other "metallic" proportions. Then, these theories are used to derive an original solution to Hilbert's Fourth Problem for hyperbolic and spherical geometries. On this journey, the book describes the "golden" qualitative theory of dynamical systems based on "metallic" proportions. Finally, it presents a solution to a Millennium Problem by developing the Fibonacci special theory of relativity as an original physical-mathematical solution for the fine-structure constant. It is intended for a wide audience who are interested in the history of mathematics, non-Euclidean geometry, Hilbert's mathematical problems, dynamical systems, and Millennium Problems. Contents:The Golden Ratio, Fibonacci Numbers, and the "Golden" Hyperbolic Fibonacci and Lucas FunctionsThe Mathematics of Harmony and General Theory of Recursive Hyperbolic FunctionsHyperbolic and Spherical Solutions of Hilbert's Fourth Problem: The Way to the Recursive Non-Euclidean GeometriesIntroduction to the "Golden" Qualitative Theory of Dynamical Systems Based on the Mathematics of HarmonyThe Basic Stages of the Mathematical Solution to the Fine-Structure Constant Problem as a Physical Millennium ProblemAppendix: From the "Golden" Geometry to the Multiverse Readership: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics and theoretical physics, mathematicians and scientists of different specializations interested in history of mathematics and new mathematical ideas.

The Mathematics of Harmony

Author: Alekse? Petrovich Stakhov
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9789812775825
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Mathematics

Assisted by Scott Olsen (Central Florida Community College, USA) This volume is a result of the author's four decades of research in the field of Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Section and their applications. It provides a broad introduction to the fascinating and beautiful subject of the ?Mathematics of Harmony,? a new interdisciplinary direction of modern science. This direction has its origins in ?The Elements? of Euclid and has many unexpected applications in contemporary mathematics (a new approach to a history of mathematics, the generalized Fibonacci numbers and the generalized golden proportions, the ?golden? algebraic equations, the generalized Binet formulas, Fibonacci and ?golden? matrices), theoretical physics (new hyperbolic models of Nature) and computer science (algorithmic measurement theory, number systems with irrational radices, Fibonacci computers, ternary mirror-symmetrical arithmetic, a new theory of coding and cryptography based on the Fibonacci and ?golden? matrices).The book is intended for a wide audience including mathematics teachers of high schools, students of colleges and universities and scientists in the field of mathematics, theoretical physics and computer science. The book may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate students and even ambitious undergraduates in mathematics and computer science.
