ABSTRACT
We study isometric immersions of surfaces of constant curvature into the homogeneous spaces $${\mathbb{H}^2\times\mathbb{R}}$$ and $${\mathbb{S}^2\times\mathbb{R}}$$ . In particular, we prove that there exists a unique isometric immersion from the standard 2-sphere of constant curvature c > 0 into $${\mathbb{H}^2\times\mathbb{R}}$$ and a unique one into $${\mathbb{S}^2\times\mathbb{R}}$$ when c > 1, up to isometries of the ambient space. Moreover, we show that the hyperbolic plane of constant curvature c < -1 cannot be isometrically immersed into $${\mathbb{H}^2\times\mathbb{R}}$$ or $${\mathbb{S}^2\times\mathbb{R}}$$ .

    The problem of determining the Bonnet hypersurfaces in Rn+1, for n > 1, is studied here. These hypersurfaces are by definition those that can be isometrically mapped to another hypersurface or to itself (as locus) by at least one nontrivial isometry preserving the mean curvature. The other...

    An approach based on the perturbation theory combined with the method of a self-consistent field was used to investigate the dimensional dependence of the specific free surface energy (surface tension) of small drops in a simple fluid. The surface tension decreases with decreasing drop size. The...

    A light propagation in a universe which is homogeneous only in average systematically differs from a light propagation in a strictly homogeneous Universe. We demonstrate a link between this effect and the general theory of transport phenomenon in random media. The effective spatial curvature of...
