The Geometry of Time (Physics Textbook)

An outline of the geometry of space-time with all of the questions and matters defined with out the necessity for formulation. As such, the writer exhibits that this can be certainly geometry, with genuine structures normal from Euclidean geometry, and which permit certain demonstrations and proofs. The formal arithmetic in the back of those structures is supplied within the appendices.

REDUCTIVE ALGEBRAIC GROUPS 30 a finite set of polynomials F1 : : : Fn in AG . We may assume that each Fi is homogeneous of degree mi > 0. 1) for some homogeneous polynomials P i of degree m mi . Now consider the A defined by the formula operator av : A 2 ; ! 1) we get F = av(P1)F1 + + av(Pn)Fn: By induction we can assume that each invariant homogeneous polynomial of degree < m can be expressed as a polynomial in Fi ’s. Since av(Pi ) is homogeneous of degree < m, we are done. 2. (Gordan–Hilbert) The algebra of invariants Pol(Pol d (V ))SL(V ) is finitely generated over k .

It is not difficult to see that the Pl¨ucker equations define set theoretically the Grassmann varieties in their Pl¨ucker embedding (see, for example, [40]). 5 describes the homogeneous ideal of the Grassmannian. As far as I know the only textbook in algebraic geometry which contains a proof of this fact is [48]. We refer to [33] for another proof based on the representation theory. 2 Let be the omega-operator in the polynomial ring k Mat r r ]. (1 ; Dr );r;1 , Dri (iii) the function f = 1 i=0 1 2!

We call such an action a rational action or, better, a regular action. In particular, a linear representation : G GL(V ) = GLn (k ) will be assumed to be given by regular functions on the affine algebraic variety G. Such linear representations are called rational representations. Let an affine algebraic group G act on an affine variety X = Spm(A). This action can be described in terms of the coaction homomorphism ! : A ! O(G) A where O (G) is the coordinate ring of G. It satisfies a bunch of axioms which are “dual” to the usual axioms of an action; we leave their statements to the reader.
