Similarly, introduce the isometric embedding [R.sub.0,n] ([L.sub.2][(R)).sup.n] [right arrow] [L.sub.2](R) 8i2(R) by the rule
If G is an open subgroup of invertible elements of A and T : [Gx.sub.0] [right arrow] Y is an isometric embedding, where Y is either [C.sub.R](K) for some compact Hausdorff space K or is a strictly convex real Banach space, then there exists [y.sub.0] [member of] Y and a real-linear isometry [??] : [Ax.sub.0] [right arrow] Y such that [??]([ax.sub.0]) = T([ax.sub.0]) - [y.sub.0], for all a [member of] G.
Let T : U [right arrow] Y be an isometric embedding. Then there exists a surjective linear map S : Y [right arrow] span U such that S(T(u)) = u for all u [member of] U and the restriction of S to span T(U) has norm one.
Any isometric embedding of G with idim(G) into [Q.sub.h] describes the same family of semicubes and pairs of complementary semicubes, which are indexed in a different way.
For an edge ab of a partial cube with an isometric embedding [alpha] into [Q.sub.h], let the vertices a and b differ in the coordinate i, i.e.
Of course, abstract infinite dimensional manifolds appear intimidating and it is only natural to seek a "reassuring" result, namely an infinite dimensional counterpart, if not of Nash's Isometric Embedding Theorem, then at least of Whitney's Topological Theorem (see, e.g.

Here we study spacetimes admitting local and isometric embedding into [E.sub.6], i.e.,4-spaces of class two [1,2].
In this work we study spacetimes (here denoted as [V.sub.4]) admitting a local and isometric embedding into the pseudo-Euclidian [gamma]at space, that is, spacetimes of class two [1,2].
This is a systematic presentation of results concerning the isometric embedding of Riemannian manifolds in local and global Euclidean spaces, especially focused on the isometric embedding of surfaces in a Euclidean space R3 and primarily employing partial differential equation techniques for proving results.
By Lemma 3.3, there is an isometric embedding F: A [right arrow] [E.sup.n+2], F([x.sub.0]) = [x.sup.*.sub.0], ..., F([x.sub.n+2]) = [x.sup.*.sub.n+2].
Much later, when studying how U may be embedded into the Banach space C[0,1] of all continuous functions from [0,1] to R equipped with the sup norm [24], Holmes discovered that U has the following remarkable property: for every isometric embedding i (resp.
