PREFACE

This book covers six aspects of graduate school mathematics: Algebra, Topology, Differential Geometry, Real Analysis, Complex Analysis and Partial Differential Equations. It contains a selection of more than 500 problems and solutions based on the Ph.D. qualifying test papers of a decade of influential universities in North America. The mathematical problems under discussion are kept within the scope of the textbooks for graduate students. Finding solutions to these problems, however, involves a deep understanding of mathematical principles as well as an acquisition of skills in analysis and computation. As a supplement t o textbooks, this book may prove to be of some help to the students in taking relevant courses. It may also serve as a reference book for the teachers concerned. It has to be pointed out that this book should not be regarded as an allpurpose troubleshooter. Nor is it advisable to take the book as an exemplary text and commit to memory all the problems and solutions and make an indiscriminate use of them. Instead, the students are expected to make a selective survey of the problems, take a do-it-yourself approach and arrive at their own solutions which they may check against those listed in the book. It would be gratifying to see that the students can work out the problems on their own and come up with better solutions than those provided by the book. If the students fail to do so or their solutions may turn out to be incomplete, it may reveal the inadequacy of their knowledge or approach, thus spurring them to greater efforts to promote their skills. The very purpose of the authors in writing the book is just to help the students to discover the truth by trial and error. This book was inspired by Professor K. K. Phua’s proposals. We are particularly grateful to him for his support. We also wish to thank Dr. Xu Peijun, Professors Zhang Yin-nan, Hong Jia-Xing and Chen Xiao-man for their painstaking efforts to collect test-oriented data. For selecting problems and providing solutions, we wish to acknowledge the following professors respectively: Wu Quan-shui (Part I), Pan Yang-lian (Part II), Jiang Guo-ying (Part

111), Tong Yu-sun, Xu Sheng-zhi (Part IV), Chen Ji-xiu (Part V) and &in Tie-hu (Part VI). We are also indebted to Professor Guo Yu-tao for carefully reading and correcting the manuscript. Finally, we pay tribute t o Dr. Cai Zhi-jie for printing out the manuscript.

a) Suppose a : [ q b ] --+ M is a smooth curve. Define what it means for a vector field Y on a to be parallel along a . Derive the differential equations that must be satisfied if Y is parallel along a. b) Let X , Y E X ( M ) . Let p E M and let a : [0, b] ---t M be an integral curve of X such that a(0) = p , da/dt = X ( a ( t ) ) . Show that

where P,,o,t : T,(o)M

+ T,(t)M

is the parallel transport along a. (Indiana)

Solution. a) As known, thus defined mapping V is the Riemannian connection. Using the properties of V , we can prove that V % Y is completely determined by a ( t ) and Y ( a ( t ) ) So V % Y is well-defined for every vector field along a. . Now we give a definition that a vector field Y on a is parallel along a , if and only if V % Y = 0, Vt E [a,b]. In order to derive the differential equations, we choose a coordinate neighborhood with local coordinates {xa}. Then

Denoting

we have, by the properties of V ,

Therefore, the desired differential equations are

b) Choose a basis { e l , - - - , e , } of T,(M), where n = d i m M . Let

Since P,,o,t is a parallel isomorphism for every t , then { e l ( t ) , . . , e,(t)} is a basis of T a ( t ) ( M ) .Hence we can denote

Then, by the properties of the connection V and by the fact that e i ( t ) is parallel along a ( t ) ,i = 1,.. + n, we immediately have ,

On the other hand, because

is equivalent to

ei = p ~ h , t ( e i ( t ) ) ,
we can write

Let M points p , q dependent identically be a Riemannian manifold with the property that given any two E M the parallel transport of a vector from T p M t o T,M is inof the curve joining p and q. Prove that the curvature of M is zero, i.e., R ( X ,Y ) Z = 0 for all X , Y ,Z E X ( M ) . (Indiana)

Solution. For a n arbitrary point p E M , take a coordinate neighborhood D of p with local coordinates zl, . ,zn . Let

-

be n linearly independent vectors in T p M . Using the hypothesis that the parallel transport of a vector from T,M to T,M is independent of the curve joining p and q , then for q E D, we can transport every Vpi from T p M to T,M. Thus, we can define n linearly independent vector fields V1, . . . ,V , in D. Obviously, all V;’s are well-defined, and if we transport along special coordinate curves, then

namely
k wll,i(z) = 0 i, j , k = 1, * * * ,n.

Now, by the Ricci identity, we have

Noting the linear independence of

i.e., the curvature of M is identically zero.

3309 Let M be an n-dimensional Riemannian manifold. Suppose there are n orthonormal vector fields XI,. . * , X, that commute with each other (i.e., [Xi, Xj] = 0; i,j = 1, .,n), show that the sectional curvature of M is identically zero. (Indiana)

i.e., T i i + rtj = 0; i,j,k = 1,. . ,n. On the other hand, from [ X i ,Xj] = 0 it follows that vx;xj - VX,Xi = [Xa,Xj] = 0, i.e., rk. - r!. = 0; i,j,k = 1,.. ,n. Namely, the Christoffel symbols '3 3% are antisymmetric with respect t o k,j, and symmetric with respect to i , j . Therefore,

In fact, this problem is the famous Green theorem. The outline of the proof is as follows. Firstly, one can show that, for example, by means of the normal coordinate system about p E M , thus defined div(X) satisfies div(X)QM = d(i(X)Qm), where Q M is the volume form of M and i( ) is the interior product operator. Next, for p E d M , choose an oriented orthonomal frame field about p {el,...,e,} such that, at p , el = N p . Let { w l , - - . , w n } be the dual frame field of {el,. . , en}. Then the volume elements of M and d M are respectively

dv = n ~ ( p=) w

If M is compact without boundary, the right hand side of the above formula vanishes naturally.

(b) Show that there exists E > 0 such that exp,(B,(O)) is a convex set. Hint. let d ( z ) = distance from z to p . Show that d2 is convex in a neighborhood of p . (Indiana) Solution. (a) This is just the existence of the normal neighborhood of p . Use the fact that d exp, is nonsingular at p, and then the implicit function theorem. (b) The existence of convex neighborhoods is a classic result due to J. H. C. Whitehead. Refer to every standard textbook on differential geometry.

Then F is a smooth homomorphism between Lie groups, and the rank of F is constant. Therefore, the kernel of F k e r F = F-'(l) = A is a closed regular submanifold of GZ(2, El) and thus a Lie group.

Now, noticing the hypothesis of this problem, by Green’s theorem we have

Suppose F : M N is a smooth map between differentiable manifolds, and is homotopically trivial. Show that in this case, F*w will be exact whenever w is a closed 1-form on N .

Consider the map G : M + { q } and the inclusion i : { q ) N . Then the map F : M -+ N is homotopic to the composition ioG.

Regard lR9 as the space of all 3 x 3 matrices with real entries. Does the subset C = {A E Rg: det(A) = 0) form a smooth submanifold of R9?

(Indiana) Solution. Observe that {A E lRg : rankA 5 l), the union of all axis in Rg, is closed. Then M := R9\{A E R9 : rankA 5 1) is an open submanifold of Rg. Define a map F : M + B1by F ( A ) = det(A), A E M . Noting that dF = ( A l l , A12, A13, A21,A22, A23, A31, A32, A33) where Aij is the algebraic complement of the corresponding entry aij of A, we see that rankdF = 1 on M . Therefore, F-l(O) = {A E IR9 : det(A) = 0) is a closed regular submanifold of M . Hence, it is also a submanifold of lR9.

Let f be holomorphic in the unit disk 1(. < l}, continuous in 1.( 5 1) and If(.)/ = 1 whenever (zJ= 1. Prove that f is a rational function. ( S U N Y , Stony Brook)

414

Solution. If f ( z ) has infinite many zeros, by the isolatedness of the zeros of holomorphic functions, the zeros must have limit points on the boundary of the unit disk. But it will violate the fact that f is continuous in ( 1 . ~ 1 5 1) and If ( . ) / =1 whenever IzI = 1. Hence f has only finite zeros in the unit disk. Denote all these zeros by zlr 22,. . . ,z,, multiple zeros being repeated, and define

Then F ( z ) is holomorphic in 1.( < 1). continuous in 1(. 5 1) and IF(z)I = 1 when I z J = 1. By the maximum modulus principle, IF(z)I 5 1 in (1. 1 5 1). Since F ( z ) has no zero in (IzI 5 1) -L- is also holomorphic in 1.( < l}, F(z)

= 1 when IzI = 1. Application of the yields IF(z)I 2 1 in 1(. 5 1). Hence maximum modulus principle to IF(z)I = 1 holds in ( 1 . ~ 1 5 l}, which implies F ( z ) = eia with Q: a real number. So we obtain

Let f be a continuous function on = { z : IzI 5 1) such that f is analytic in U. If f = 1 on the half-circle y = (eie : 0 5 8 5 a}, prove that f = 1 everywhere in (Indiana) Solution. Define F ( z ) = (f(z) - l ) ( f ( - z ) - l), then F ( z ) is also continuous on V and analytic in U. When z E d U , we have either f ( z ) - 1 = 0 or f(-z) - 1 = 0. Hence F ( z ) = 0 holds for all z E which implies either f ( z ) - 1 0 or 0. Since f(z) - 1 0 is equivalent to f(-z) - 1 0, we obtain f(-z) - 1 f ( z ) 1 for all z E V . Remark. The condition that “f = 1 on the half-circle y” can be weakened t o that “f = 1 on an arc y = (eie : 0 5 8 5 f } , where n is a natural number”.

(Indiana) Solution. Because f is a one-to-one conformal map of@\K onto A with f(w) = 0, it has a simple zero a t z = 00. Since p is a polynomial of degree n, it has a pole of order n a t z = M. Hence the function F ( z ) = p(z)fn(z) is analytic in G\K which contains point z = 00. As f ( z ) maps@\K onto A = { z : IzJ< l}, we have lim lf(z)J = 1. Together with Ip(z)I 5 1 for z E K, we know that the
