During this monograph, the interaction among geometry and partial differential equations (PDEs) is of specific curiosity. It provides a selfcontained creation to analyze within the final decade bearing on international difficulties within the concept of submanifolds, resulting in a few different types of Monge-Ampère equations. From the methodical perspective, it introduces the answer of sure Monge-Ampère equations through geometric modeling suggestions. the following geometric modeling capability the perfect selection of a normalization and its brought about geometry on a hypersurface outlined through an area strongly convex international graph. For a greater knowing of the modeling recommendations, the authors provide a selfcontained precis of relative hypersurface conception, they derive very important PDEs (e.g. affine spheres, affine maximal surfaces, and the affine consistent suggest curvature equation). pertaining to modeling suggestions, emphasis is on conscientiously dependent proofs and exemplary comparisons among assorted modelings.

Here we summarize the material necessary for our purposes. For details we refer to the two monographs [58] and [88], for a survey to [86]. For a unifying approach studying invariants that are independent of the choice of the normalization see [87]. In the following summary of the basic formulas we use the invariant and the local calculus; in this way we present the basic formulas from the affine hypersurface theories in three different terminologies, namely: in Chapter 2 Cartan’s calculus together with a standard local calculus, in Chapter 3 the invariant calculus of Koszul and again a local description.

Apolarity Condition. , n; d ln |H| = 0. The vector Y , satisfying one of the conditions (a)-(c), is called the (equi-)affine normal of x. 2. Remarks. (i) When x : M → An+1 is locally strongly convex, from the above calculation one can easily see that Y always points to the concave side of x(M ). (ii) The geometric meaning of the apolarity condition is the following: Both, the Levi-Civita and the induced connection, have symmetric Ricci tensors. Thus both connections ∇ and ∇ admit parallel volume forms; in case of the Levi-Civita connection it is the Riemannian volume form.

1 The Euclidean normalization To identify Euclidean invariants of x we will use the mark “E”. If V is equipped with a Euclidean inner product, we identify V and V ∗ according to the Theorem of Riesz. A hypersurface x is non-degenerate if and only if the Euclidean Weingarten operator S(E) has maximal rank; this is equivalent to the fact that the Euclidean second fundamental form II has maximal rank. For a Euclidean normalization, according to the Gauß structure equations, h(E) = II is the relative metric.
