The examine of homogeneous areas presents first-class insights into either differential geometry and Lie teams. In geometry, for example, normal theorems and houses also will carry for homogeneous areas, and may often be more straightforward to appreciate and to end up during this surroundings. For Lie teams, an important volume of research both starts with or reduces to research on homogeneous areas, usually on symmetric areas. for a few years and for lots of mathematicians, Sigurdur Helgason's vintage Differential Geometry, Lie teams, and Symmetric areas has been--and maintains to be--the general resource for this fabric.

Helgason starts with a concise, self-contained creation to differential geometry. He then introduces Lie teams and Lie algebras, together with vital effects on their constitution. This units the degree for the advent and learn of symmetric areas, which shape the crucial a part of the booklet. The textual content concludes with the class of symmetric areas through the Killing-Cartan class of straightforward Lie algebras over $\mathbf{C}$ and Cartan's class of easy Lie algebras over $\mathbf{R}$.

The very good exposition is supplemented by means of large collections of worthy routines on the finish of every bankruptcy. the entire difficulties have both strategies or giant tricks, stumbled on behind the booklet.

For this most up-to-date version, Helgason has made corrections and further important notes and important references. The sequels to the current publication are released within the AMS's Mathematical Surveys and Monographs sequence: teams and Geometric research, quantity eighty three, and Geometric research on Symmetric areas, quantity 39.

Sigurdur Helgason was once provided the Steele Prize for Differential Geometry, Lie teams, and Symmetric areas and teams and Geometric research.

This publication is an advent to differential manifolds. It supplies good preliminaries for extra complicated issues: Riemannian manifolds, differential topology, Lie idea. It presupposes little historical past: the reader is just anticipated to grasp uncomplicated differential calculus, and a bit point-set topology. The ebook covers the most subject matters of differential geometry: manifolds, tangent house, vector fields, differential kinds, Lie teams, and some extra subtle issues reminiscent of de Rham cohomology, measure thought and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for surfaces.

Its ambition is to offer sturdy foundations. specifically, the advent of “abstract” notions similar to manifolds or differential types is stimulated through questions and examples from arithmetic or theoretical physics. greater than a hundred and fifty routines, a few of them effortless and classical, a few others extra refined, might help the newbie in addition to the extra professional reader. options are supplied for many of them.

The publication may be of curiosity to numerous readers: undergraduate and graduate scholars for a primary touch to differential manifolds, mathematicians from different fields and physicists who desire to gather a few feeling approximately this pretty theory.

The unique French textual content advent aux variétés différentielles has been a best-seller in its type in France for lots of years.

Jacques Lafontaine was once successively assistant Professor at Paris Diderot collage and Professor on the collage of Montpellier, the place he's shortly emeritus. His major examine pursuits are Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry, together with a few features of mathematical relativity. along with his own learn articles, he used to be focused on numerous textbooks and examine monographs.

The Atiyah-Singer index theorem is a outstanding consequence that enables one to compute the distance of suggestions of a linear elliptic partial differential operator on a manifold by way of in basic terms topological facts concerning the manifold and the emblem of the operator. First proved by means of Atiyah and Singer in 1963, it marked the start of a totally new path of analysis in arithmetic with family to differential geometry, partial differential equations, differential topology, K-theory, physics, and different components. The author's major target during this quantity is to offer an entire evidence of the index theorem. The model of the evidence he chooses to give is the only in accordance with the localization theorem. the necessities contain a primary path in differential geometry, a few linear algebra, and a few proof approximately partial differential equations in Euclidean areas.

Reflect on a Hamiltonian motion of a compact attached Lie team on a symplectic manifold M ,w. Conjecturally, lower than appropriate assumptions there exists a morphism of cohomological box theories from the equivariant Gromov-Witten concept of M , w to the Gromov-Witten idea of the symplectic quotient. The morphism might be a deformation of the Kirwan map. the assumption, as a result of D. A. Salamon, is to outline this kind of deformation by way of counting gauge equivalence periods of symplectic vortices over the complicated aircraft C. the current memoir is a part of a undertaking whose target is to make this definition rigorous. Its major effects take care of the symplectically aspherical case.

This quantity involves a suite of papers that brings jointly basic study in Radon transforms, crucial geometry, and tomography. It grew out of the distinctive consultation at a Sectional assembly of the yankee Mathematical Society in 2004. The e-book comprises very fresh paintings of a few of the head researchers within the box. The articles within the e-book take care of the decision of homes of features on a manifold via crucial theoretic tools, or via selecting the geometric constitution of subsets of a manifold by means of analytic equipment. Of specific problem are methods of reconstructing an unknown functionality from a few of its projections. Radon transforms have been built at the start of the 20th century by means of researchers who have been inspired via difficulties in differential geometry, mathematical physics, and partial differential equations. Later, clinical purposes of those transforms produced breakthroughs in imaging expertise that led to the 1979 Nobel Prize in body structure and medication for the advance of automatic tomography. this day the topic boasts enormous cross-disciplinary interactions, either in natural and utilized arithmetic in addition to medication, engineering, biology, physics, geosciences, and business checking out. for this reason, this quantity will be of curiosity to a large spectrum of researchers either in arithmetic and in different fields
