Reviews Riemannian Geometry

By DONNA ROBINSON
Bernard Riemann only published
one thin book, but "each page of
this volume contained some great
discovery," and it made him one
of the greatest mathematicians of
history, Prof. Cornelius Lanczos
said yesterday.
Speaking on "Riemannian Ge-
ometry and Einstein's Theory of
Gravitation,"- Prof. Lanczos, of
the Dublin Institute for Advanced
Studies viewed the discoveries of
Riemann, a German mathemati-
cian of the nineteenth century.
,Riemann's teacher, Karl Fried-
rich Gauss, had transcended the
old Cartesian system based on
Euclidean postulates and had
placed geometry on a more cer-
tain base of observed physical
measurement, which had enabled
him to build up a system of geom-
etry for a curved two-dimensional
surface. He discovered one quan-
tity which can characterize the
entire geometry of a surface.
Prof. Lanczos explained that
Riemann picked up Gauss' two-
dimensional curved geometry and

About Festival
Mike Meyerson, chairman of the

day on American student partici-
pation in the festival.

extended it to three-and-four
dimensional surfaces. He also im-
proved upon the arbitrary system
of notations which Gauss had
used, substituting symbols which
showed the relationship and se-
quence of the components of ge-
ometrical formulas. This system of
notation is called the Riemann
tensor.
In formulating these systems,
Riemann had in mind a physicist
who at some time would attempt
to transcend the Newtonian dis-;
cription of the universe. This phy-
sicist came sixty years later in the
person of Albert Einstein.I
In investigating the problem of
gravitation, Einstein felt the need
for a system of curved geometry
beyond Gauss' two-dimensional
system, and the work of Riemann
supplied such a system, Prof. Lan-
czos said.
Einstein reduced the twenty
components -of the Riemann ten-
sor first to ten, and later to only.
one, in reference to the planetary
system.
Using this system, Einstein was
able to explain the universe that
Newton had described. Due to the
pragmatic orientation of most
physicists at that time, Einstein
would probably not have received
much acclaim for this explana-;
tion alone, since he really hadn't
discovered any new facts.
What made him famous were
two minor deviations from New-
ton's theories - one concerning,
planetary orbits and another ex-
plaining the bending of light rays.

Group Aids
Campaign
For Romney
The "Students for Romney".
group of the University held its
first mass meeting Monday after-,
noon.
The group is headed by three co-
chairmen: Mark Hauser, '64, Dave
Pampu, '62, and Barry Litvin, '64.
Recognized by Student Govern-'
ment Council and claiming not to
be a "front organization" for the
Young Republicans, the group'
hopes to serve "an important part"
in keeping George Romney's name1
in. frequent use until the election.
The organization, which initial-
ly took form in November, now
has counterparts on the campuses
of Michigan State University,
Wayne State University, Albion
College nand other colleges.
Explaining SFR's function, Hau-
ser said that the Young Republi-
cans will not start to move until
Romney actually becomes nomi-
nated. Therefore, the SFR group
is not in competition with them
but instead is acting as a com-
pletely independent organization.
"We don't think we are starting
too early," he added. There is a
tremendous amount of administra-
tive work to be done to prepare
for the projects we have planned
for the spring.
These projects include a May-
day "Rally Round Romney" and
a mock election. Romney is tenta-
tively scheduled to speak at the
rally.
Hauser said he felt the political
nucleus at the University was very
small and needed encouragement.
