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

This ebook illustrates the wide variety of Jerry Marsden’s mathematical legacy in parts of geometry, mechanics, and dynamics, from very natural arithmetic to very utilized, yet consistently with a geometrical standpoint. each one contribution develops its fabric from the perspective of geometric mechanics starting on the very foundations, introducing readers to trendy concerns 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 individual researchers engaged on themes with reference to his study parts. The ebook is prepared into 3 components, with the 1st half featuring an summary of Professor Shoshichi Kobayashi’s profession. this can be through expository path lectures (the moment half) on fresh subject matters in extremal Kähler metrics and cost distribution conception, with a view to be priceless for graduate scholars in arithmetic drawn to new issues in advanced geometry and complicated research.

Degenerate Complex Monge–Ampère Equations

Advanced Monge–Ampère equations were probably the most strong instruments in Kähler geometry on account that Aubin and Yau’s classical works, culminating in Yau’s option to the Calabi conjecture. A remarkable program is the development of Kähler-Einstein metrics on a few compact Kähler manifolds. lately degenerate complicated Monge–Ampère equations were intensively studied, requiring extra complex instruments.

As a matter of fact, Mumford was partly motivated by later work of Hirzebruch on cusp singularities which may be seen as a natural continuation of his thesis. Let T be the standard complex algebraic torus C*2 C (02. The basic fact is that Xn,q contains the algebraic torus Tn,q = T/C'n,q. We shall ,,,,q- construct the resolution Xn,q 4 Xn,q by gluing several copies of C2 which map to Xn,q so that T is mapped isomorphically onto Xn,q C C3 be the Weierstrahspace given by the equation :T = 0. Let Xn,q -4 Xn,q be the normalization reap induced by the map C2 -- Xn,q given by (zl, z2i z3) = (ti, t2, tt,--`I).

In their paper "Komplexe Rdume", published 1958 in Mathematische Annalen they proved that the notions of complex space in the sense of Behnke and Stein and in the sense of Cartan were coextensive. Grauert and Remmert also clarified a question that Hirzebruch had to leave unanswered in his thesis. They proved that every k-dimensional normal complex space can be presented locally as an algebroid covering of a domain in Ck. This means that locally it is the normalization of a Weierstraf3covering defined by an irreducible Weierstral3polynomial 24 EGBERT BRIESKORN in C{z1,...
