This ebook by means of Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had
a lengthy and intricate background. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a chain of lectures on
discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean airplane, and this led him - in the course of
World conflict II - to jot down the 1st chapters of the ebook (in German). while Fenchel,
who needed to break out from Denmark to Sweden as a result German career,
returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what grew to become recognized
as the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript. at the moment they have been either on the Technical
University in Copenhagen. the 1st draft of the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript (now
in English) used to be accomplished in 1948 and it used to be deliberate to be released within the Princeton
Mathematical sequence. although, as a result of speedy improvement of the topic, they felt
that sizeable adjustments needed to be made prior to booklet.
When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen college in 1951 (where he stayed until eventually
1955), he used to be a lot concerned with the foreign association UNESCO, and the
further writing of the manuscript used to be left to Fenchel. The documents of Fenchel now
deposited and catalogued on the division of arithmetic at Copenhagen Univer-
sity comprise unique manuscripts: a partial manuscript (manuscript zero) in Ger-
man containing Chapters I-II (

I -15), and an entire manuscript (manuscript I) in
English containing Chapters I-V (

1-27). The data additionally include a part of a corre-
spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place
Nielsen makes distinct reviews to Fenchel's writings of Chapters III-V. Fenchel,
who succeeded N. E. Nf/Jrlund at Copenhagen collage in 1956 (and stayed there
until 1974), used to be greatly concerned with an intensive revision of the curriculum in al-
gebra and geometry, and focused his examine within the idea of convexity, heading
the overseas Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly two decades
he additionally positioned a lot attempt into his task as editor of the newly began magazine Mathematica
Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this task left him little time to complete the
Fenchel-Nielsen venture the best way he desired to.
After his retirement from the college, Fenchel - assisted through Christian Sieben-
eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - came upon time to
finish the publication trouble-free Geometry in Hyperbolic house, which was once released through
Walter de Gruyter in 1989 presently after his loss of life. at the same time, and with a similar
collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on
discontinuous teams, elimination a few of the vague issues that have been within the unique
manuscript. Fenchel informed me that he pondered removal components of the introductory
Chapter I within the manuscript, due to the fact that this may be coated via the e-book pointed out above;
but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen e-book self-contained he finally selected to not do
so. He did choose to miss
27, entitled Thefundamental team.

As editor, i began in 1990, with the consent of the criminal heirs of Fenchel and
Nielsen, to supply a TEX-version from the newly typewritten model (manuscript 2).
I am thankful to Dita Andersen and Lise Fuldby-Olsen in my division for hav-
ing performed a superb task of typing this manuscript in AMS- TEX. i've got additionally had
much aid from my colleague J0rn B0rling Olsson (himself a scholar of Kate Fenchel
at Aarhus college) with the facts interpreting of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)
against manuscript 2 in addition to with a basic dialogue of the variation to the fashion
of TEX. In so much respects we made up our minds to persist with Fenchel's intentions. despite the fact that, turning
the typewritten version of the manuscript into TEX helped us to make sure that the notation,
and the spelling of convinced key-words, will be uniform through the booklet. additionally,
we have indicated the start and finish of an evidence within the ordinary type of TEX.
With this TEX -manuscript I approached Walter de Gruyter in Berlin in 1992, and
to my nice aid and delight they agreed to put up the manuscript of their sequence
Studies in arithmetic. i'm so much thankful for this confident and quickly response. One
particular challenge with the booklet grew to become out to be the replica of the various
figures that are a vital part of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at
first agreed to carry those in ultimate digital shape, yet by means of 1997 it turned transparent that he
would now not have the ability to locate the time to take action. even though, the writer provided an answer
whereby I should still convey exact drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't depart such
for Chapters IV and V), after which they'd set up the creation of the figures in
electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his superb
collaboration about the real construction of the figures.
My colleague Bent Fuglede, who has personaHy identified either authors, has kindly
written a brief biography of the 2 of them and their mathematical achievements,
and which additionally locations the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript in its right point of view. In
this connection i need to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and
Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this ebook reproductions of images of the 2
authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.
Since the manuscript makes use of a couple of distinct symbols, a listing of notation with brief
explanations and connection with the particular definition within the publication has been integrated. additionally,
a complete index has been additional. In either circumstances, all references are to sections,
not pages.
We thought of including a whole record of references, yet determined opposed to it because of
the overwhelming variety of learn papers during this sector. in its place, a miles shorter
list of monographs and different entire money owed proper to the topic has been
My ultimate and such a lot honest thank you visit Dr. Manfred Karbe from Walter de Gruyter
for his commitment and perseverance in bringing this ebook into life.

Ratios, after many alternations, come to an extremely close approximation to the irrational root, then gradually move away. We have, then, a general convergence-divergence configuration.
