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

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 115.00 US$ 104.65This 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...
