In each case the angle of a is added to that of z resulting in a conformal map. ) Show that a trans- Linear fractional transformations permute these circles on the sphere, and the corresponding finite points of the generalized circles in the complex plane. Theorem 2.5. Now let O() be the ring of holomorphic functions on . the image line, the original transformation w = T(z) also has this property, i.e., any two points z 1 and z 2 symmetric about L 1 are mapped by the transformation T to w 1 and w 2 symmetric about L 2. Indeed, the horizontal line ℓ0 given by y=π,x≤0 lies in J(Fλ) since it is mapped onto R− by Fλ. Moreover, if Rez>0, thenFλn(z)→qasn→∞. b Gormley (1947) "Stereographic projection and the linear fractional group of transformations of quaternions". t Solution. The upper half plane will be the points in a model of hyperbolic geometry called the Poincar´e upper half plane model or P-model. Indeed, for a wide class of these maps (see [31]), all repelling periodic orbits lie at the endpoints of invariant curves which connect the orbit to the essential singularity at ∞. with a,b,c,d ∈ R. This transformation must also satisfy Imw(i) > 0, which is equivalent to Im ai+b ci+d = ad−bc c2 +d2 > 0. 0 1 But the group G consists of fractional linear transformations of C, leaving D invariant. {\displaystyle \operatorname {PGL} _{1}(A).}. d This generalized circle intersects the boundary at two other points. But we know all such FLTs are of the form y domain E = {zle < 1,g(z) > 0), フ It also maps the imaginary axis iRto the real axis R. So our problem reduces to finding the M¨obius transformations which map the upper half plane to itself and map iRto iR. Find necessary and sufficient conditions which the complex numbers a, b, c, and d have to satisfy so that the linear fractional transformation z(az +b)/(cz + d) maps the upper half plane onto itself. Then use property 5 above and the Schwarz lemma. This lack of homogeneity in the Julia set is caused by the fact that one of the asymptotic values is a pole. More generally, consider the group of invertible complex -matrices, , and the corresponding fractional-linear transformations exp Let θ 0 be any real constant z 0 be any point in the upper half plane. Without question, the basic theorem in the theory of conformal mapping is Riemann's mapping theorem. , Definition. f(iy)=1−cosh y1+cosh y. goes from −1 to 0, and then back from 0 to −1 as y goes from 0 to ∞ through negative real values. 5.5. The image of the dissected surface C˜(α) under the map (2.29) is a topological quadrilateral G in the plane Cu with pairwise identified opposite sides. 10} maps onto the curve of Diagram 1.2. , Proof. The transformations in Eq. If 0 < a < b < π/2, the loop for x = b contains the loop for x = a in its Jordan interior. (a) Construct a fractional linear transformation f(z) that maps the unit disk |z| ≤ 1 onto the upper half-plane Imz > 0 so that f(i) = ∞ and f(1) = 1. Rosa (1998) "Hyperbolic calculus", This page was last edited on 22 November 2020, at 13:31. Writing z = x + iy, the strip between x = 0 and x = π/2 is mapped into the open unit disk with the interval (−1, 0] deleted, the two bounding lines map on the boundary of the slit disk. ) Curves of this kind are known as aerofoils, and have had some importance in aerodynamic studies. The family of coherent states considered as a function of both u and z is obviously the Cauchy kernel [5]. b We note that Fλ(z)=Lλ∘E(z) where E(z)=exp(−2z) and Lλ is the linear fractional transformation. Similarly, we nd that the left half plane is mapped in the unit disk, whereas the unit disk - in the left half plane. ( Suppose C1 and C2 are two continuous curves intersecting in a point z0, and such that each has definite tangents at z0 (i.e. The group SL 2 (Z) acts on H by fractional linear transformations. See Anosov flow for a worked example of the fibration: in this example, the geodesics are given by the fractional linear transform. It suffices to consider the quadruples (0, 1, α, ∞), applying additional fractional-linear transformations of C^ to the initial ones. The circle {z : |z + 1 − i| = Analytic Functions as Mapping, M¨obius Transformations 4 at right angles in G are mapped to rays and circles which intersect at right angles in C: Of course the principal branch of the logarithm is the inverse of this mapping. These subsets of the complex plane are provided a metric with the Cayley-Klein metric. Such transformation … To see this, just compute |Fλ′(q)|<1. In this section we give an example of a family of maps with constant Schwarzian derivatives for which certain of the repelling fixed points lie on analytic curves in the Julia set, but for which many of the other periodic points do not.

In the complex plane a generalized circle is either a line or a circle. Each model has a group of isometries that is a subgroup of the Mobius group: the isometry group for the disk model is SU(1, 1) where the linear fractional transformations are "special unitary", and for the upper half-plane the isometry group is PSL(2,R), a projective linear group of linear fractional transformations with real entries and determinant equal to one. The fixed point p is repelling. These half lines meet, as is expected, at an angle of π. b The standard linearization procedure [3, § 7.1] leads from Möbius transformations (4) to the unitary representation ρ1 irreducible on the Hardy space: Möbius transformations provide a natural family of intertwining operators for ρ1 coming from inner automorphisms of SL(2, ℝ) (will be used later). The group SL_2(Z) acts on H by fractional linear transformations. The transformations in Eq. The "angle" y is hyperbolic angle, slope, or circular angle according to the host ring. An equivalence class in the projective line over A is written U[z,t] where the brackets denote projective coordinates. The linear fractional transformations form a group, denoted {\displaystyle \operatorname {PGL} _{1}(\mathbb {Z} )} Since f′(z) = 2z and 2ξ ≠ 0, θ is also the angle between u = a and ν = b; but this angle is π/2; hence θ = π/2. (1) Show that any linear fractional transformation that maps the real line to itself can be written as T g where a,b,c,d ∈ R. (2) The complement of the real line is formed of two connected re-gions, the upper half plane {z ∈ bC : Imz > 0}, and the lower half plane {z ∈ C : Imz < 0}. This follows from the fact that Fλ has negative Schwarzian derivative: if |(Fλ)′(p)|≤1, then it follows that p would have to attract a critical point or asymptotic value of Fλ on R. This does not occur since q attracts λ and 0 is a pole. half plane to D(0;1) So z → g(z) = −z+i −z−i maps upper half plane to D(0;1). It is one of those results one would like to present in a one-semester introductory course in complex variable, but often does not for lack of sufficient time. We may identify the unit disk D with the left coset T\SL(2,ℝ) for the unit circle T through the important decomposition SL(2,ℝ)~T×D with K=T—the only compact subgroup of SL(2, ℝ): Each element g ∈ SL(2, ℝ) acts by the linear-fractional transformation (the Möbius map) on D and TH2(T) as follows: In the decomposition (3) the first matrix on the right hand side acts by transformation (4) as an orthogonal rotation of T and D; and the second one—by transitive family of maps of the unit disk onto itself. In this problem, consider the group G of matrices with integer entries, determinant 1, and such that a and d have the same parity, b and c have the same parity, and c and d have opposite parity. Fλ maps vertical lines with Re z<0 to a family of circles orthogonal to those in 4 which are contained in the plane Re z<λ/2. First consider the ordered quadruples a = (a1, a2, a3, a4) of distinct points on C^. Welcome back to our little series on automorphisms of four (though, for all practical purposes, it's really three) different Riemann surfaces: the unit disc, the upper half plane, the complex plane, and the Riemann sphere.Last time, we proved that the automorphisms of the unit disc take on a certain form. To obtain the full group of isometries of ℍ2, one takes the group generated by G, and the restriction to D of a euclidean reflection in a line through the origin of D. We now consider the full collection of geodesics of ℍ2. An example of such linear fractional transformation is the Cayley transform, which was originally defined on the 3 x 3 real matrix ring. Since p1 is an attracting fixed point for Fλ−1, the curve ℓ formed by concatenating the ℓi is invariant and accumulates on pi as i→∞. [2] Sol: Let H,E denote respectively the upper half plane and the unit disc. Similarly f(C2) makes the angle α2 + δ with the real axis, whence the result follows. The upper half-plane H is not a group itself, but is acted upon by SL 2(R) (2-by-2 real matrices with determinant 1) acting by linear fractional transformations a b c d (z) = az+ b cz+ d We will see that the simplest quotient of the upper half-plane, SL 2(Z)nH, is topologically a sphere with a point missing. which has an inverse. Clearly jy+ 1j>jy 1j; Find a conformal map which maps the first quadrant D(zIR(z) > 0, g(z) >0} to the the disk D = {zllz-1| < 1} 2 +1 with 3(w) >0. Let C˜(α) be the two-sheeted covering of C^ with branch points 0, 1, α, ∞; it is conformally equivalent to a torus X. a Another elementary application is obtaining the Frobenius normal form, i.e. The precise definition depends on the nature of a, b, c, d, and z. If n=2kis even, z2k approaches −1 from the upper half-plane. Linear fractional transformations are shown to be conformal maps by consideration of their generators: multiplicative inversion z → 1/z and affine transformations z → a z + b. Conformality can be confirmed by showing the generators are all conformal. In fact, the above shows that the angle between f(C1) and f(C2) in question is obtained by a rotation by δ, and any small subregion of D containing z0 goes into a “similar” subregion of f(D) determined by this rotation and a “stretching” by |f′(z0)|. Hence, the extremal map f0 minimizing K(f) corresponds to the affine map, of the plane Cu. can be also obtained [5,8] from representation ρ1 but are not used and considered here. Let z 1;z 2;z 3 2R so that ˚(z i) 6=1. 1 The translation z → z + b is a change of origin and makes no difference to angle. However, in the SL = z The upper plane the left domain with respect to the direction 1 ! . In a non-commutative ring A, with (z,t) in A2, the units u determine an equivalence relation Now let ϕ1 = arg(f(z1) − f(z0)), so we may write f(z1) − f(z0) = ρ1eiϕ1, say. We let U =fz 2C :=z >0g and call this set of complex numbers the upper half plane. In mathematics, a linear fractional transformation is, roughly speaking, a transformation of the form. zin the upper half-plane. with a, b, c and d real, with 0 ! In mathematics, the modular group is the projective special linear group PSL(2, Z) of 2 × 2 matrices with integer coefficients and unit determinant.The matrices A and −A are identified. , Fλ has poles at kπi where k∈Z as well as the following mapping properties: Fλ maps the horizontal lines Im z=12(2k+1)π onto the interval (0,λ) in R. Fλ maps the imaginary axis onto the line Re z=λ/2, with the points kπi mapped to ∞. Thus the image of line segments through the origin of D, and intersecting ∂D, are generalized circle segments in D which intersect ∂D orthogonally. such as the upper half-plane H or the unit disk D, and let Hol() be the group of holomorphic transformations of . In the most general setting, the a, b, c, d and z are square matrices, or, more generally, elements of a ring. See Section 99 of the book for the reason is called a bilinear transformation. Similarly the lines x = c, c ≠ 0 and y = c, c ≠ 0 map onto parabolas meeting at an angle of π/2, while x = 0 and y = 0 (the axes) map onto the halflines ν = 0, u ≤ 0, and ν = 0, u ≥ 0 each described twice. This group, therefore, preserves the collection of generalized circles in C and their angles of mutual intersection. thermoclines and submarines in oceans, etc.) It also provides a canonical example of Hopf fibration, where the geodesic flow induced by the linear fractional transformation decomposes complex projective space into stable and unstable manifolds, with the horocycles appearing perpendicular to the geodesics. Indeed, depending on the time available and the text used, elementary conformal mapping in general is a subject which in an introductory course may not be adequately treated. But not all points in the Julia set lie on smooth invariant curves: There is a unique repelling fixed pointp1in the half strip, Let R be the rectangle π/20, i.e. Such a definition of conformal includes the possibility of a conformal map preserving the magnitude but not the sense of angles. This chapter begins, therefore, with an introduction to some basic results on conformal mapping especially those involving univalent functions. Then an angle between f(C1) and f(C2) at z0 exists, since well-defined tangents exist. t This was originally prepared for the British Admiralty in 1944–48, and was reissued by Dover Press, New York in 1952. Then [3][4] The general procedure of combining linear fractional transformations with the Redheffer star product allows them to be applied to the scattering theory of general differential equations, including the S-matrix approach in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, the scattering of acoustic waves in media (e.g. Problem 6. The upper half complex plane is defined by H := {z in C | Im(z) >0}. Proof. The interior of the circle maps onto the exterior of the aerofoil. where are such that these maps send the upper half-plane to itself. 1;hence the range domain will be left oriented with respect to 0; 1;1 (the images of 1;0;1), e.g., the half plane below the real axis. A.E. (a) Construct a fractional linear transformation f(z) that maps the unit disk |z| ≤ 1 onto the upper half-plane Imz > 0 so that f(i) = ∞ and f(1) = 1. Then ℓ1 meets ℓ0 at iπ, ℓ2 meets ℓ1 at Fλ−1(iπ), and so forth. ) These maps have asymptotic values at 0 and λ, and 0 is also a pole. The upper half plane. If we require the coefficients a, b, c, d of a Möbius transformation to be real numbers with ad − bc = 1, we obtain a subgroup of the Möbius group denoted as PSL(2,R). Recall that the geodesics emanating from the origin of D are the euclidean line segments through the origin with euclidean and hyperbolic distances related by (1). We take a canonical dissection of C˜(α) formed by the twice converted cuts along a Jordan arc γ1 connecting the points 0 and 1 and along a Jordan arc γ2 connecting the points 0 and α. S and T 2 A modular group refers to a projective special linear of a 2 by 2 matrix having integer coefficients, together with unit determinants. Linear fractional transformations are widely used in various areas of mathematics and its applications to engineering, such as classical geometry, number theory (they are used, for example, in Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem), group theory, control theory. The space Hh/SL 2 (Z) is not compact; it is compactified by adding the cusps, which are points of Q, together with ∞. The Upper Half-Plane Model, Möbius Transformation, Hyperbolic Distance, Fixed Points, The Group PSL (2,ℜ) 1. Solving this is equivalent to finding a FLT that maps the upper half plane to the disk and sends ∞ 7→i and 1 7→1 and taking its inverse. In the relation The group operates within the upper half of the complex plane through a fractional linear transformation. Welcome back to our little series on automorphisms of four (though, for all practical purposes, it's really three) different Riemann surfaces: the unit disc, the upper half plane, the complex plane, and the Riemann sphere.Last time, we proved that the automorphisms of the unit disc take on a certain form. See Section 99 of the book for the reason is called a bilinear transformation. 1 When a, b, c, d are integer (or, more generally, belong to an integral domain), z is supposed to be a rational number (or to belong to the field of fractions of the integral domain. HenceJ(Fλ)is contained in the half-plane Rez≤0. For further examples with diagrams of the mapping properties of a great variety of functions, the reader is referred to A Dictionary of Conformal Mapping by H. Kober. 0 ! If we suppose f′ has a zero of order n at z0, then f(C1) and f(C2) still have definite tangents at z0, but the angle btween them is the angle between C1 and C2 multiplied by n + 1. Elements of SL(2, ℝ) could be represented by 2 × 2-matrices with complex entries such that: There are other realisations of SL(2, ℝ) which may be more suitable under other circumstances, e.g. To understand the functional calculus from Definition 5 we need first to realise the function theory from Proposition 4, see [5,6,8,9] for more details. A Similarly, γ cannot meet the line x=0 (except possibly at iπ). This is the group of those Möbius transformations that map the upper half-plane H = x + iy : y > 0 to itself, and is equal to the group of all biholomorphic (or equivalently: bijective, conformal and orientation-preserving) maps H → H. If a proper metric is introduced, the upper half-plane becomes a model of the hyperbolic plane H , the Poincaré half-plane model, and PSL(2,R) is the group of all orientation-preserving isometries of H in this model. Each loop contains the slit (−1, 0] in its Jordan interior, and is contained in B(0, 1). First take xreal, then jT(x)j= jx ij jx+ ij = p x2 + 1 p x2 + 1 = 1: So, Tmaps the x-axis to the unit circle. Linear fractional transformations are widely used in control theory to solve plant-controller relationship problems in mechanical and electrical engineering. Since the limit exists, f(C1) has a definite tangent at f(z0) which makes the angle α1 + δ with the real axis. Let f(z) be an analytic function in a region D of the z-plane. The group Fractional linear transformations. Then the distance between two points is computed using the generalized circle through the points and perpendicular to the boundary of the subset used for the model. , Examples are given throughout. ⁡ 1;hence the range domain will be left oriented with respect to 0; 1;1 (the images of 1;0;1), e.g., the half plane below the real axis. 2. i z. The different proofs and some applications of theorem can be found in [Ah2,Ag1,Ho1,Ho2,Kr3,KK,LVV], We provide here another application, following [Kru5]. The line x = a, 0 < a < π/2 is mapped onto a loop which cuts the real axis at −1 and at another point where I m ( Let ˚be a fractional-linear transformation such that ˚(0) = , ˚(1) = . The modular group acts on the upper-half of the complex plane by fractional linear transformations, and the name "modular group" comes from the relation to moduli spaces and not from modular arithmetic The Upper Half Plane. The upper half-plane H is not a group itself, but is acted upon by SL 2 (R) (2-by-2 real matrices with determinant 1) acting by linear fractional transformations Since Henri Poincaré explicated these models they have been named after him: the Poincaré disk model and the Poincaré half-plane model. Model 1: … u It also maps the imaginary axis iRto the real axis R. So our problem reduces to finding the M¨obius transformations which map the upper half plane to itself and map iRto iR. Their cross-ratios. 2. Only these maps determine the boundary points of the non-Euclidean disk, Robert L. Devaney, in Handbook of Dynamical Systems, 2010. One may note in particular that ∞ is mapped onto −1. We should further note that f preserves the sense of the angle. For example, in Example 11.7.4 the real axis is mapped the unit circle. , From: North-Holland Mathematics Studies, 2004. ⁡ An “angle between C1 and C2” is an angle formed by the tangents at z0. PGL We choose [7,8] K-invariant function v0(z) ≡ 1 to be a vacuum vector. Finally, inversion is conformal since z → 1/z sends Suppose f′(z0) ≠ 0. Perhaps the simplest example application of linear fractional transformations occurs in the analysis of the damped harmonic oscillator. }, Möbius transformation generalized to rings other than the complex numbers, John Doyle, Andy Packard, Kemin Zhou, "Review of LFTs, LMIs, and mu", (1991), Juan C.

( 2. i u v 2 1 1 2 i i. ⁡ exp Arithmetic functions ⁡ Over a field, a linear fractional transformation is the restriction to the field of a projective transformation or homography of the projective line. In this case, the invertibility condition is that ad – bc must be a unit of the domain (that is 1 or −1 in the case of integers).[1]. The flrst linear fractional transformation,w1=¡i`(z), is obtained by multiplying by¡ithe linear fractional transformation`(z), where`(z) =i 1¡ z 1+z maps the unit disk onto the upper half-plane, and multiplication by¡irotates by the angle¡ … 2 Z The space H/SL_2(Z) is not compact; it is compactified by adding the cusps, which are points of Q, together with Infinity. When A is a commutative ring, then a linear fractional transformation has the familiar form, where a, b, c, d are elements of A such that ad – bc is a unit of A (that is ad – bc has a multiplicative inverse in A). Note that this curve is considerably different, from a dynamical point of view, from the invariant curve R− through p. In North-Holland Mathematics Studies, 2008. Since all points on γ leave the strip under iteration, it follows that γ must contain iπ. In other words, it is the group of maps of the form: . Any quasiconformal automorphism C^→C^ moving a into a′ (i.e., with fixed points 0, 1, ∞ and moving α into α′) is lifted to a quasiconformal homeomorphism f˜:C˜(α)→C˜(α′) with K(f˜)=K(f). We begin with a semi-informal review of the basic mapping properties of an analytic function f at a point z0 where f′(z0) ≠ 0. ) Dubrovin, A.T. Fomenko, S.P. is real this scales the plane. Before proving this, note that it does not say lines are mapped to lines and circles to circles. The commutative rings of split-complex numbers and dual numbers join the ordinary complex numbers as rings that express angle and "rotation". This may be seen as follows: If z1 ∈ C1 and z2 ∈ C2 are two variable points on the curves near z0 such that |z1 − z0| = |z2 − z0| = r say, then. they represent functions differentiable at z0). (a) Prove that a linear-fractional transformation with exactly two xed points is conjugate to f (z) = z, for some 2C. For if f′ has a zero of exact order n at z0, then in a neighborhood of z0. Definition as a group of fractional linear transformations. A linear fractional transformation maps lines and circles to lines and circles. Linear fractional transformations permute these circles on the sphere, and the corresponding finite points of the generalized circles in the complex plane. If = e it rotates the plane. Solution: Assume that and are xed points of a linear-fractional transformation g, g( ) = , g( ) = . It has been widely studied because of its numerous applications to number theory, which include, in particular, Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. All four points are used in the cross ratio which defines the Cayley-Klein metric. − In each case the exponential map applied to the imaginary axis produces an isomorphism between one-parameter groups in (A, + ) and in the group of units (U, × ):[5]. ) Hence the pre-image of the straight line u = a is the hyperbola x2 − y2 = a and the pre-image of the straight line v = b is the hyperbola 2xy = b. The upper half complex plane is defined by Hh := {z∈C | Im(z) >0}. One can easily check that, with the geodesies playing the role of lines, ℍ2 is a hyperbolic geometry. the image line, the original transformation w = T(z) also has this property, i.e., any two points z 1 and z 2 symmetric about L 1 are mapped by the transformation T to w 1 and w 2 symmetric about L 2. ) Thus the associated coherent states. and, as r → 0, z1 → z0, z2 → z0, θ1 → α1, θ2 → α2. Definition III.3.5. Section 6.2 Linear Fractional Transformations 137 To map the inside of the unit circle to its outside, and its outside to its inside, as shown in the mapping from the second to the third figure, use an inversion The Upper Half Plane. − Finally the Schwarz-Christoffel Theorem giving explicit mappings of polygonal regions is treated. Then Hh^ * /SL 2 (Z) is compact. Since ad−bc 6= 0, we have c2 +d2 > 0, and thus ad−bc > 0. z¯, or, more generally, the map obtained by taking the complex-conjugate of any analytic conformal map. One can require in this theorem much more, namely, that the desired quasiconformal automorphism C^→C^ belongs to a given homotopic class of homeomorphisms of the punctured spheres C(a)→C(a′). 7! To construct models of the hyperbolic plane the unit disk and the upper half-plane are used to represent the points. {\displaystyle (z,t)\sim (uz,ut).} So γ can only accumulate at ∞ or iπ. There is a continuous invariant curve which lies in the Julia set and accumulates on p1. Motter & M.A.F. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. The invertibility condition is then ad – bc ≠ 0. ∼ limr→0ρ1eiϕ1reiθ1=Reiδ and so limr→0(ϕ1 − θ1) = δ, whence limr→0 ϕ1 = α1 + δ. Q.1 Show that a linear fractional transformationT maps the upper half plane onto the unit disc iff it is of the form T(z) = λ z −z 0 z −z¯ 0, for some z 0 in the upper half plane and for some λ with |λ| = 1. P.G.
