#### Lie Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 169.00Semisimple Lie groups, and their algebraic analogues over fields other than the reals, are of fundamental importance in geometry, analysis, and mathematical physics. Three independent, self-contained volumes, under the general title Lie Theory , feature survey work and original results by well-established researchers in key areas of semisimple Lie... more...

#### The Geometry Of Hessian Structures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 79.00 US$ 64.78The geometry of Hessian structures is a fascinating emerging field of research. It is in particular a very close relative of Kählerian geometry, and connected with many important pure mathematical branches such as affine differential geometry, homogeneous spaces and cohomology. The theory also finds deep relation to information geometry in applied... more...

#### Handbook of Normal Frames and Coordinates

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 97.71The main subject of this book is an up-to-date and in-depth survey of the theory of normal frames and coordinates in di?erential geometry. The existing results, as well as new ones obtained lately by the author, on the theme are presented. The text is so organized that it can serve equally well as a reference manual, introduction to and review of the... more...

#### Vanishing and Finiteness Results in Geometric Analysis

Birkhäuser Basel 2008; US$ 109.00This book presents very recent results involving an extensive use of analytical tools in the study of geometrical and topological properties of complete Riemannian manifolds. It analyzes in detail an extension of the Bochner technique to the non compact setting, yielding conditions which ensure that solutions of geometrically significant differential... more...

#### Projective Differential Geometry of Submanifolds

Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95In this book, the general theory of submanifolds in a multidimensional projective space is constructed. The topics dealt with include osculating spaces and fundamental forms of different orders, asymptotic and conjugate lines, submanifolds on the Grassmannians, different aspects of the normalization problems for submanifolds (with special emphasis... more...

#### Discrete Differential Geometry

Birkhäuser Basel 2008; US$ 39.30Discrete differential geometry is an active mathematical terrain where differential geometry and discrete geometry meet and interact. It provides discrete equivalents of the geometric notions and methods of differential geometry, such as notions of curvature and integrability for polyhedral surfaces. Current progress in this field is to a large extent... more...

#### Handbook of Differential Geometry

Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 270.00In the series of volumes which together will constitute the Handbook of Differential Geometry a rather complete survey of the field of differential geometry is given. The different chapters will both deal with the basic material of differential geometry and with research results (old and recent). All chapters are written by experts in the area and... more...

#### Radon Transforms and the Rigidity of the Grassmannians (AM-156)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 115.00 US$ 92.00This book provides the first unified examination of the relationship between Radon transforms on symmetric spaces of compact type and the infinitesimal versions of two fundamental rigidity problems in Riemannian geometry. Its primary focus is the spectral rigidity problem: Can the metric of a given Riemannian symmetric space of compact type be characterized... more...

#### Differential Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 106.00 US$ 86.92This volume contains research and expository papers on recent advances in foliations and Riemannian geometry. Some of the topics covered in this volume include: topology, geometry, dynamics and analysis of foliations, curvature, submanifold theory, Lie groups and harmonic maps. Among the contributions, readers may find an extensive survey on characteristic... more...
