#### The Geometry Of Hessian Structures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 128.00The 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...

#### Differential Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 189.00This book gives the basic notions of differential geometry, such as the metric tensor, the Riemann curvature tensor, the fundamental forms of a surface, covariant derivatives, and the fundamental theorem of surface theory in a self-contained and accessible manner. Although the field is often considered a “classical” one, it has recently... more...

#### Riemannian Geometry in an Orthogonal Frame

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 113.00Foreword by S S Chern. In 1926–27, Cartan gave a series of lectures in which he introduced exterior forms at the very beginning and used extensively orthogonal frames throughout to investigate the geometry of Riemannian manifolds. In this course he solved a series of problems in Euclidean and non-Euclidean spaces, as well as a series of variational... more...
