This book presents an overview of the outcomes resulting from applying the dynamical systems approach to space mission design, a topic referred to as "Space Manifold Dynamics" (SMD). It is a natural follow-on to the international workshop "Novel Spaceways for Scientific and Exploration Missions," which was held in October at the Telespazio Brand: Springer New York. Manifold Space is the second book in the trilogy, but isn’t really a sequel. Instead, it is more like Stephen Baxter’s second proposed answer to the Fermi Paradox (“If ET’s are out there, why haven’t they contacted us?”). Malenfant returns, but he’s cast in a different role with a different character, and frankly gets a lot less : Hamilcar Barca.

And this is the point. The Manifold series is a discovery of alternate universes, alternate possibilities, from the context of a central but loosely constructed character Reid Malenfant. In Time' and Space', Malenfant's adventures were more linear and core to a saga of the universe/5(5). A manifold is a certain type of topological space, which is to say, it is a topological space with the property that each That is, if someone comes up to you and says. Look at this topological space. Is it a manifold? then in fact they have asked you a reasonable question.

Really quite stunning. I liked Manifold: Time but found it occasionally uneven and that it didn't entirely fit together. But this book was a lot better (and I recommend starting with it, there's no sense in which this is a sequel). Manifold: Space is an exploration of the Fermi Paradox -- /5(12).

In General Relativity, spacetime is a $4$-dimensional manifold with one Lorentzian metric tensor defined on it. In the Special Relativity case what manifold is spacetime is quite clear: it is essentially $\mathbb{R}^4$ endowed with the metric tensor $\eta_{\mu\nu}=\operatorname{diag}(-1,1,1,1)$.
