By S. Dostoglou, P. Ehrlich

This quantity includes improved models of invited lectures given on the Beemfest: Advances in Differential Geometry and normal Relativity (University of Missouri-Columbia) at the party of Professor John okay. Beem's retirement. The articles deal with difficulties in differential geometry typically and particularly, worldwide Lorentzian geometry, Finsler geometry, causal obstacles, Penrose's cosmic censorship speculation, the geometry of differential operators with variable coefficients on manifolds, and asymptotically de Sitter spacetimes pleasurable Einstein's equations with confident cosmological consistent. The booklet is appropriate for graduate scholars and learn mathematicians drawn to differential geometry

Geometry, Mechanics, and Dynamics: The Legacy of Jerry Marsden

This ebook illustrates the wide variety of Jerry Marsden’s mathematical legacy in components of geometry, mechanics, and dynamics, from very natural arithmetic to very utilized, yet constantly with a geometrical point of view. each one contribution develops its fabric from the point of view of geometric mechanics starting on the very foundations, introducing readers to fashionable matters through illustrations in a variety of subject matters.

Geometry and Analysis on Manifolds: In Memory of Professor Shoshichi Kobayashi

This quantity is devoted to the reminiscence of Shoshichi Kobayashi, and gathers contributions from distinctive researchers engaged on issues just about his study parts. The booklet is prepared into 3 elements, with the 1st half proposing an outline of Professor Shoshichi Kobayashi’s profession. this is often through expository path lectures (the moment half) on contemporary themes in extremal Kähler metrics and cost distribution concept, with the intention to be worthy for graduate scholars in arithmetic drawn to new themes in complicated geometry and intricate research.

Degenerate Complex Monge–Ampère Equations

Advanced Monge–Ampère equations were essentially the most robust instruments in Kähler geometry for the reason that Aubin and Yau’s classical works, culminating in Yau’s method to the Calabi conjecture. A impressive software is the development of Kähler-Einstein metrics on a few compact Kähler manifolds. in recent times degenerate advanced Monge–Ampère equations were intensively studied, requiring extra complex instruments.

Zll , with no complex conjugates ZT appearing. 2c. The resulting manifold is called an n -dimensional complex manifold, although its topological dimension is 2n . Of course the simplest example is e" itself. Let us consider the most famous non­ trivial example, the Riemann sphere M I . The complex plane e (topologically ]R2 ) comes equipped with a global complex co­ ordinate z = x + i y. It is a complex I -dimensional manifold e 1 . To study the behavior of functions at "00" we introduce a point at 00, to form a new manifold that is topologically the 2-sphere 52.
