Plane chart


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Plane chart a representation of some part of the superficies of the globe, in which its spherical form is disregarded, the meridians being drawn parallel to each other, and the parallels of latitude at equal distances.
    • Plane chart See under Chart and Curve.

We exploit the Killing symmetries of the plane gravitational wave metric and suitable spacetime charts to construct a class of solutions in terms of certain linear ordinary differential equations.

Consequently, we have chosen a coordinate chart in such a way that the fluid flow velocity always lies in the two plane spanned by ∂/∂x2 and ∂/∂x4 at each point.
Homothetic perfect fluid space-times
We need its generalization for the case of an arbitrary surface In such generalization the coordinate plane u1 , u2 or some its in the space E. part plays the role of a chart, while the real geometric domain and its boundary contour should be placed on a surface.
Course of differential geometry
By uniform continuity we find ε such that for every point p in M the 2ε-ball centered at p verifies that it admits a C 1 -chart to an open set in R3 which sends E to an almost horizontal xy -plane and E ⊥ to an almost vertical z -line.
Partial hyperbolicity and foliations in $\mathbb{T}^3$
Start with an oriented embedding of K in a coordinate chart R3 in which δ is the standard constant framing (outward normal “1” followed by i, j, k), and assume that the pro jection of K onto the ij -plane is generic.
