Unformatted text preview: Math402 Problem Set 13 Second Part This problem set is about the Hyperbolic Plane of radius —1 and its 1/2plane model/map.
I would like numerical answers in Problem 2 — use your calculator. Problem 1. In class we deﬁned the hyperbolic distance dH(P, Q) between two points P and Q: Q r , r~ 3‘. \

(*) dH(PQ)— _ llnm— PBQA 9.. \, A It:
__6:_.__...._. *0“.. This deﬁnition does not work if P and Q are on the same vertical line since then there is only one
intersection point A of the hyperbolic line through P and Q with the boundary line. The idea in
this case is to take the second intersection point B to be 00. Of course we cannot use 00 in PB and QB, so we take B to be a point on the vertical line (PQ “very high up”. Show that this trick works, 216. show that if you plug—in points P, Q, A, and B, into the formula *
and take the limit l, —> 00, the limit exists. The answer (limit) should be a nice formula for
dH(P, Q) in terms of x and y. Problem 2. We use Cartesian coordinates on the 1/2plane so that the boundary line is the
x—axis. Let A = (0,1), B = (0,2), C = (1,1), P = (3.0, 0.1), Q = (30,02), R = (3.1,0.1): we;
