Injective and non-injective realizations with symmetry

In this paper, we introduce a natural classification of bar and joint frameworks that possess symmetry. This classification establishes the mathematical foundation for extending a variety of results in rigidity, as well as infinitesimal or static rigidity, to frameworks that are realized with certain symmetries and whose joints may or may not be embedded injectively in the space. In particular, we introduce a symmetry-adapted notion of `generic' frameworks with respect to this classification and show that `almost all' realizations in a given symmetry class are generic and all generic realizations in this class share the same infinitesimal rigidity properties. Within this classification we also clarify under what conditions group representation theory techniques can be applied to further analyze the rigidity properties of a (not necessarily injective) symmetric realization.

In this thesis, we investigate the rigidity and flexibility properties of frameworks consisting of rigid bars and flexible joints that possess non-trivial symmetries. Using techniques from group representation theory, we first prove that the rigidity matrix of a symmetric framework can be transformed into a block-diagonalized form. Based on this result, we prove a generalization of the symmetry-extended version of Maxwell’s rule given in [25] which can be applied to both injective and non-injective realizations in all dimensions. We then use this rule to prove that a symmetric isostatic (i.e., minimal infinitesimally rigid) framework must obey some very simply stated restrictions on the number of joints and bars that are ‘fixed ’ by various symmetry operations of the framework. In particular, it turns out that a 2-dimensional isostatic framework must belong to one of only six possible point groups. For 3-dimensional isostatic frameworks, all point groups are possible, although restrictions on the placement of structural components still apply. For three of the five non-trivial symmetry groups in dimension 2 that Minimize

On the area discrepancy of triangulations of squares and trapezoids

Description:

In 1970 P. Monsky showed that a square cannot be triangulated into an odd number of triangles of equal areas; further, in 1990 E. A. Kasimatis and S. K. Stein proved that the trapezoid T(α) whose vertices have the coordinates (0,0), (0,1), (1,0), and (α,1) cannot be triangulated into any number of triangles of equal areas if α> 0 is transcendent...

In 1970 P. Monsky showed that a square cannot be triangulated into an odd number of triangles of equal areas; further, in 1990 E. A. Kasimatis and S. K. Stein proved that the trapezoid T(α) whose vertices have the coordinates (0,0), (0,1), (1,0), and (α,1) cannot be triangulated into any number of triangles of equal areas if α> 0 is transcendental. In this paper we first establish a new asymptotic upper bound for the minimal difference between the smallest and the largest area in triangulations of a square into an odd number of triangles. More precisely, using some techniques from the theory of continued fractions, we construct a sequence of triangulations Tni of the unit square into ni triangles, ni odd, so that the difference between the smallest and the largest area in Tni is O ( 1 n3) i We then prove that for an arbitrarily fast-growing function f: N → N, there exists a transcendental number α> 0 and a sequence of triangulations Tni of the trapezoid T(α) into ni triangles, so that the difference between the smallest and the largest area in Tni is O ( 1 f(ni) Minimize

Symmetric Laman theorems for the groups C2 and Cs

Description:

For a bar and joint framework (G,p) with point group C3 which describes 3-fold rotational symmetry in the plane, it was recently shown in (Schulze, Discret. Comp. Geom. 44:946-972) that the standard Laman conditions, together with the condition derived in (Connelly et al., Int. J. Solids Struct. 46:762-773) that no vertices are fixed by the auto...

For a bar and joint framework (G,p) with point group C3 which describes 3-fold rotational symmetry in the plane, it was recently shown in (Schulze, Discret. Comp. Geom. 44:946-972) that the standard Laman conditions, together with the condition derived in (Connelly et al., Int. J. Solids Struct. 46:762-773) that no vertices are fixed by the automorphism corresponding to the 3-fold rotation (geometrically, no vertices are placed on the center of rotation), are both necessary and sufficient for (G,p) to be isostatic, provided that its joints are positioned as generically as possible subject to the given symmetry constraints. In this paper we prove the analogous Laman-type conjectures for the groups C2 and Cs which are generated by a half-turn and a reflection in the plane, respectively. In addition, analogously to the results in (Schulze, Discret. Comp. Geom. 44:946-972), we also characterize symmetry generic isostatic graphs for the groups C2 and Cs in terms of inductive Henneberg-type constructions, as well as Crapo-type 3Tree2 partitions- the full sweep of methods used for the simpler problem without symmetry. 1 Minimize
