Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Holonomy displacement of curves in bundle SO(N) going to SO0(1,N) going to Hn
by Byun, Taechang, Ph.D., The University of Oklahoma, 2011, 83; 3453925
Abstract (Summary)

The Riemannian submersion π : SO0(1, n) → [special characters omitted] is a principal bundle and its fiber at π(e) is the imbedding of SO(n) into SO0(1, n), where e is the identity of both SO0(1, n) and SO( n). In this study, we associate a curve, starting from the identity, in SO(n) to a given piecewise smooth surface with boundary, homeomorphic to the closed disk [special characters omitted], in [special characters omitted] such that the starting point and the ending point of the curve agree with those of the horizontal lifting of the boundary curve of the given surface with boundary, respectively, and that the length of the curve is as same as the area of the given surface with boundary. In addition, the curve in SO(n) relates the connection of its tangent vector to the curvature of some point in SO0(1, n).
