In these notes all graphs are undirected, finite and simple, unless otherwise specified. It is clear that the nerve of a circle packing is connected and planarsince one can draw the nerve by placing each vertex tautologically in riemann mapping theorem location in the complex plane, and drawing each edge by the line segment between the centres of the circles it connects this line segment will pass through the point of tangency of the two circles.
Later in these notes we will also have to consider some infinite circle packings, riemann mapping theorem notably the infinite regular hexagonal circle packing.
The first basic theorem in the subject is the riemann mapping theorem converse statement: Theorem 3 Circle packing theorem Every connected planar graph is the nerve of a circle packing.
It turns out that once one adds enough edges to the planar graph, the circle packing is otherwise rigid: Theorem 4 Koebe-Andreev-Thurston theorem If a connected planar graph riemann mapping theorem maximal i.
Exercise 5 Let be a connected planar graph with vertices.
Riemann Mapping Theorem -- from Wolfram MathWorld
Show that the following are equivalent: However, in order to be valid, the Dirichlet principle needs certain hypotheses concerning the boundary of U which are not valid for simply connected domains in general. His proof used Riemann surfaces riemann mapping theorem it was simplified by Paul Koebe two years later riemann mapping theorem a way which did not require them.
In this proof, like in Riemann's proof, the desired mapping was obtained as the solution of an extremal problem.
Importance[ edit ] The following points detail the uniqueness and power of the Riemann mapping theorem: Even relatively simple Riemann mappings for example a map from the interior of a circle to the interior of a square have no explicit formula using only elementary functions.
Simply connected open sets in the plane can be highly complicated, for instance the boundary can be a nowhere- differentiable fractal curve of infinite length, even if the set itself is bounded. The fact that such a set can be mapped in an angle-preserving manner to the nice and regular unit disc seems counter-intuitive.
The analog of the Riemann mapping theorem for more complicated domains is not true. The next riemann mapping theorem case is of doubly connected domains domains with riemann mapping theorem single hole.
