The Monge-Ampère equation has attracted huge curiosity lately due to its very important position in numerous parts of utilized arithmetic. Monge-Ampère variety equations have purposes within the parts of differential geometry, the calculus of diversifications, and a number of other optimization difficulties, resembling the Monge-Kantorovitch mass move challenge. This ebook stresses the geometric elements of this pretty conception, utilizing innovations from harmonic research – overlaying lemmas and set decompositions.

The final ten years have visible fast advances within the knowing of differentiable four-manifolds, now not least of which has been the invention of latest 'exotic' manifolds. those effects have had far-reaching results in geometry, topology, and mathematical physics, and feature confirmed to be a mainspring of present mathematical learn. This ebook offers a lucid and available account of the fashionable learn of the geometry of four-manifolds. therefore, it will likely be required studying for all these mathematicians and theoretical physicists whose learn touches in this subject. The authors current either a radical therapy of the most traces of those advancements in four-manifold topology--notably the definition of latest invariants of four-manifolds--and additionally a wide-ranging therapy of correct themes from geometry and international research. the entire major theorems approximately Yang-Mills instantons on four-manifolds are confirmed intimately. at the geometric facet, the e-book includes a new facts of the category of instantons at the four-sphere, including an intensive dialogue of the differential geometry of holomorphic vector bundles. on the finish of the booklet the several strands of the idea are introduced jointly within the proofs of effects which settle long-standing difficulties in four-manifolds topology and that are on the subject of the frontiers of present learn. Co-author Donaldson is the 1994 co-recipient of the distinguished Crafoord Prize.

This publication introduces readers to the dwelling issues of Riemannian Geometry and info the most effects recognized up to now. the implications are said with no particular proofs however the major rules concerned are defined, affording the reader a sweeping panoramic view of virtually everything of the sector.
From the stories "The booklet has intrinsic price for a scholar in addition to for an skilled geometer. also, it truly is a compendium in Riemannian Geometry." --MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS

By Serge Lang (auth.)
"This booklet comprises crucial fabric that each graduate scholar needs to be aware of. Written with Serge Lang's inimitable wit and readability, the amount introduces the reader to manifolds, differential types, Darboux's theorem, Frobenius, and all of the significant positive factors of the principles of differential geometry. Lang lays the foundation for extra examine in geometric research, and gives a fantastic source within the suggestions of differential topology. The booklet may have a key place on my shelf.

"This is an hassle-free, finite dimensional model of the author's vintage monograph, creation to Differentiable Manifolds (1962), which served because the average reference for countless dimensional manifolds. It presents an organization beginning for a beginner's access into geometry, topology, and international research. The exposition is unencumbered via pointless formalism, notational or in a different way, that is a pitfall few writers of introductory texts of the topic be able to stay away from. The author's hallmark features of directness, conciseness, and structural readability are far and wide in facts. a pleasant contact is the inclusion of extra complicated subject matters on the finish of the publication, together with the computation of the pinnacle cohomology crew of a manifold, a generalized divergence theorem of Gauss, and an uncomplicated residue theorem of a number of complicated variables. If attending to the most aspect of a controversy or having the main rules of a subject matter laid naked is necessary to you, then you definitely might locate the analyzing of this booklet a pleasing experience."

* dedicated to the movement of surfaces for which the conventional pace at each element is given by way of the suggest curvature at that time; this geometric warmth movement method is named suggest curvature move. * suggest curvature circulate and comparable geometric evolution equations are vital instruments in arithmetic and mathematical physics.

The ebook offers an creation to sub-Riemannian geometry and optimum shipping and provides many of the contemporary development in those fields. The textual content is totally self-contained: the linear dialogue, containing all of the proofs of the said effects, leads the reader step-by-step from the idea of distribution on the very commencing to the lifestyles of optimum delivery maps for Lipschitz sub-Riemannian constitution. the combo of geometry awarded from an analytic perspective and of optimum delivery, makes the booklet attention-grabbing for a truly huge neighborhood. This set of notes grew from a chain of lectures given via the writer in the course of a CIMPA tuition in Beirut, Lebanon.

The current. quantity is the second one quantity of the ebook "Singularities of Differentiable Maps" through V.1. Arnold, A. N. Varchenko and S. M. Gusein-Zade. the 1st quantity, subtitled "Classification of serious issues, caustics and wave fronts", was once released via Moscow, "Nauka", in 1982. it will likely be stated during this textual content easily as "Volume 1". while the 1st quantity contained the zoology of differentiable maps, that's it used to be dedicated to an outline of what, the place and the way singularities may be encountered, this quantity comprises the weather of the anatomy and body structure of singularities of differentiable capabilities. which means the questions thought of in it are in regards to the constitution of singularities and the way they functionality. one other virtue of the current quantity is that we take a difficult examine questions for which you will need to paintings within the complicated area, the place the 1st quantity was once dedicated to topics for which, most often, it used to be now not very important which box (real or advanced) we have been contemplating. Such subject matters as, for instance, decomposition of singularities, the relationship among singularities and Lie algebras and the asymptotic behaviour of alternative integrals looking on parameters turn into clearer within the complicated area. The e-book involves 3 elements. within the first half we give some thought to the topological constitution of remoted serious issues of holomorphic services. We describe the elemental topological features of such serious issues: vanishing cycles, exceptional bases, intersection matrices, monodromy teams, the adaptation operator and their interconnections and approach to calculation.
