    The sphere lemma of A. Connes says that a compact oriented, 2-dimensional measured lamination of positive Euler characteristic has many sphere leaves. The original proof of Connes uses non-commutative geometry. We give a new proof, using branched surface methods borrowed from 3-manifold theory,...

    Recently, the classical Veronese surface reemerged in the context of the application oriented field of Computer Aided Geometric Design due to its interesting relation to rational triangular Bézier surfaces. This motivated the investigation of Veronese varieties presented in this paper. It is...

    We construct a set of noncommutative geometries by performing N-point deformation of algebraic K3 surfaces. First, we consider two-point deformation of algebraic K3 surfaces by performing algebraic deformation of a pair of commutative algebraic K3 surfaces. In this case, the moduli space of the...

    We derive a formula relating the number of bitangencies, the number of double points and the normal Euler number of a generic closed surface in four-dimensional Euclidean space. We give a geometric interpretation of the sign of a bitangency, and also we give a geometric interpretation of the...
