An Alternative Surface Measures Construction in Finite-Dimensional Spaces and its Consistency with the Classical Approach
Keywords:Surface measure, Surface area, Vector field
Background. The area formulae are well known for surfaces embedded into a finite-dimensional Euclidean space. However, in the case of an infinite-dimensional Banach manifold, such formulae cannot be used. Thus, a problem of finding an alternative approach to the surface measures construction appears, that, on the one hand, leads to classical results in finite-dimensional case, and on the other hand, can be used for infinite-dimensional Banach manifolds.
Objective. The aim of the paper is to get a construction of surface measure induced by the Lebesgue measure and the associated form for a parametrically defined surface embedded into finite-dimensional Euclidean space. Show the consistency of surface area calculation by this construction with an area calculated by using well-known classical formulae.
Methods. Basic results of mathematical analyses, measure theory and differential geometry are used.
Results. An alternative construction of surface measures induced by the Lebesgue measure on surfaces in finite-dimensional space is obtained. It is shown that such approach is consistent with the classical definition of the surface area.
Conclusions. The construction of surface measures suggested for infinite-dimensional spaces is a generalization of the classical approach in finite-dimensional spaces. Therefore further investigation of the described approach seems to be reasonable.
