Download Global Riemannian Geometry: Curvature and Topology by Steen Markvorsen PDF

By Steen Markvorsen

The booklet features a transparent exposition of 2 modern issues in sleek differential geometry:

- distance geometric research on manifolds, particularly, comparability concept for distance features in areas that have good outlined bounds on their curvature
- the applying of the Lichnerowicz formulation for Dirac operators to the learn of Gromov's invariants to degree the K-theoretic dimension of a Riemannian manifold.

It is meant for either graduate scholars and researchers who are looking to get a brief and glossy advent to those topics.

Surveys in Differential Geometry: Papers dedicated to Atiyah, Bott, Hirzebruch, and Singer (The founders of the Index Theory) (International Press) (Vol 7)

The Surveys in Differential Geometry are vitamins to the magazine of Differential Geometry, that are released by means of overseas Press. They contain major invited papers combining unique study and overviews of the most up-tp-date examine in particular components of curiosity to the transforming into magazine of Differential Geometry neighborhood.

Fourier-Mukai and Nahm Transforms in Geometry and Mathematical Physics

Quintessential transforms, resembling the Laplace and Fourier transforms, were significant instruments in arithmetic for no less than centuries. within the final 3 a long time the improvement of a few novel principles in algebraic geometry, classification thought, gauge conception, and string concept has been heavily concerning generalizations of vital transforms of a extra geometric personality.

Riemannsche Geometrie im Großen

Aus dem Vorwort: "Globale Probleme der Differentialgeometrie erfreuen sich eines immer noch wachsenden Interesses. Gerade in der Riemannschen Geometrie hat die Frage nach Beziehungen zwischen Riemannscher und topologischer Struktur in neuerer Zeit zu vielen sch? nen und ? berraschenden Einsichten gef?

Geometric analysis and function spaces

This ebook brings into concentration the synergistic interplay among research and geometry through studying various themes in functionality conception, actual research, harmonic research, a number of advanced variables, and staff activities. Krantz's process is inspired through examples, either classical and glossy, which spotlight the symbiotic dating among research and geometry.
