euclidean space

[yü′klid·ē·ən ′spās]
A space consisting of all ordered sets (x1, …, xn ) of n numbers with the distance between (x1, …, xn ) and (y1, …, yn ) being given by the number n is called the dimension of the space.

Euclidean Space


in mathematics, a space whose properties are described by the axioms of Euclidean geometry. In a more general sense, a Euclidean space is an n-dimensional vector space, into which several special Cartesian coordinates can be introduced so that its metric is defined in the following manner: If point M has the coordinates (x1x2, …, xn and point M* has the coordinates (x1*, x2*, …, xn*), then the distance between these points is

As introduced (as ansatz) in [1] and as shall be derived formally in the two parts of this paper, the hyper-surface (or proper Euclidean 3-space) [SIGMA]' along the horizontal is underlied by an isotropic one-dimensional proper intrinsic space denoted by [phi][rho]' (that has no unique orientation in the Euclidean 3-space [SIGMA]').

In this paper, we would like to contribute the solution of the above question, by studying this question for tubes or tubular surfaces in Euclidean 3-space [E.sup.3] and Minkowski 3-space [E.sup.3.sub.1].
Thus, M is an open part of a circular cylinder in Euclidean 3-space. We have the following theorem and corollary:
Here using the standard coordinate system of Euclidean 3-space [E.sup.3], a surface r(u, v) in [E.sup.3] will be written as r(u, v) = (x(u, v), y(u, v), z(u, v)).The surface which can be written as (1.2) is usually called translation surface in Euclidean 3-space [E.sup.3] ([5], [6]).
In this note we define affine translation surfaces z(x, y) = f (x)+ g(y + ax) in Euclidean 3-space [E.sup.3] and get the following main result.
Equation (1) states that the one-dimensional space [[rho].sup.0]' along the vertical projects zero component (or nothing) into the Euclidean 3-space [SIGMA]' (as a hyper-surface) along the horizontal.
where [phi][rho]' is without the superscript "0" label because it lies in (or underneath) our Euclidean 3-space [SIGMA]' (without superscript "0" label) along the horizontal.
Point [A.sup.*] in the negative Euclidean 3-space -[[SIGMA].sup.*] of the negative universe is the symmetry-partner to point A in the positive Euclidean 3-space [SIGMA] of the positive universe.
