The circle #

This file defines circle to be the metric sphere (metric.sphere) in centred at 0 of radius 1. We equip it with the following structure:

We furthermore define exp_map_circle to be the natural map λ t, exp (t * I) from to circle, and show that this map is a group homomorphism.

Implementation notes #

Because later (in geometry.manifold.instances.sphere) one wants to equip the circle with a smooth manifold structure borrowed from metric.sphere, the underlying set is {z : ℂ | abs (z - 0) = 1}. This prevents certain algebraic facts from working definitionally -- for example, the circle is not defeq to {z : ℂ | abs z = 1}, which is the kernel of complex.abs considered as a homomorphism from to , nor is it defeq to {z : ℂ | norm_sq z = 1}, which is the kernel of the homomorphism complex.norm_sq from to .
