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

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 110.00This 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...

#### The Determinate World

De Gruyter 2009; US$ 133.00This study examines the place of Hermann von Helmholtz?s seminal papers on geometry in his philosophy of science. The arguments of these papers are traced back to his prior work on the theory of magnitudes, as well as to Helmholtz?s early, Kantian position. The author claims that Helmholtz should be understood not as opposing Kant, but as... more...

#### Differential Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 106.00This 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...

#### Hyperbolic Manifolds and Discrete Groups

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 89.99Hyperbolic Manifolds and Discrete Groups is at the crossroads of several branches of mathematics: hyperbolic geometry, discrete groups, 3-dimensional topology, geometric group theory, and complex analysis. The main focus throughout the text is on the "Big Monster," i.e., on Thurston?s hyperbolization theorem, which has not only completely... more...
