Let X be a complete CAT(0) space with the geodesic extension property and Alexandrov curvature bounded below. It is shown that if C is a closed subset of X, then the set of points of X which have a unique nearest point in C is Gδ and of the second Baire category in X. If, in addition, C is bounded, then the set of points of X which have a unique farthest point in C is dense in X. A proximity result for set-valued mappings is also included.

    The purpose of the present paper is to prove: Let M be a Kaehler hypersurface of a complex space form M˜ (c) of constant holomorphic sectional curvature c. Then the following conditions are equivalent: (A) M has the recurrent second fundamental form. (B) M has the birecurrent second...

    We consider invariant submanifolds of a trans-Sasakian manifold and obtain the conditions under which the submanifolds are totally geodesic. We also study invariant submanifolds of a trans-Sasakian manifold satisfying Z(X;Y):h = 0, where Z is the concircular curvature tensor.

    In this paper, we give a rigorous derivation of Einstein's geodesic hypothesis in general relativity. We use small material bodies $${\phi^\epsilon}$$ governed by the nonlinear Klein-Gordon equations to approximate the test particle. Given a vacuum spacetime $${([0, T]\times\mathbb{R}^3, h)}$$ ,...

    We present a novel framework to compute geodesics on implicit surfaces and point clouds. Our framework consists of three parts, particle based approximate geodesics on implicit surfaces, Cartesian grid based approximate geodesics on point clouds, and geodesic correction. The first two parts can...

    The alternately directional implicit (ADI) scheme is usually used in 3D depth migration. It splits the 3D square-root operator along crossline and inline directions alternately. In this paper, based on the ideal of data line, the four-way splitting schemes and their splitting errors for the...
