Unformatted text preview: Differential Geometry 2 Homework 01 1. Let V be a finitedimensional real vector space on which [  ] is an inner product of type ( + ... +). Fix R > 0 and select a point a in one component H of the hyperboloid { z V : [ z  z ] = R 2 } . Let B = B R ( a ) be the ball of radius R in a and calculate explicitly the pullback of the canonical Riemannian metric h on H via the inverse F : B H of stereographic projection from a . 2. Let (  ) be a (positivedefinite) inner product on the finitedimensional real vector space V of which S is the unit sphere. Fix a S and let = a : S { a } a be stereographic projection from a . Choose n S and determine explicitly the image under of the equatorial hypersphere n ( S { a } ). Solutions (1) By direct calculation, F : B H V acts on w B to produce F ( w ) = a + f ( w )( w + a ) where f ( w ) = 2 R 2 R 2 [ w  w ] whence if also u a then F w ( u ) = f w ( u )( w...
