Download Fundamental groups of compact Kähler manifolds by J. Amoros PDF

By J. Amoros

This booklet is an exposition of what's presently recognized concerning the basic teams of compact Kahler manifolds. This classification of teams comprises all finite teams and is exactly smaller than the category of all finitely presentable teams. For the 1st time ever, this publication collects jointly the entire effects received within the previous few years which goal to characterise these endless teams which may come up as basic teams of compact Kahler manifolds. each one of these effects are detrimental ones, asserting which teams don't come up. they're proved utilizing Hodge idea and its combos with rational homotopy idea, with $L^2$ -cohomology, with the speculation of harmonic maps, and with gauge idea. there are various confident effects besides, displaying attention-grabbing teams as basic teams of Kahler manifolds, in reality, of gentle advanced projective forms. The tools and methods used shape an enticing mixture of topology, differential and algebraic geometry, and intricate research. The ebook will be invaluable to researchers and graduate scholars attracted to any of those components, and it may be used as a textbook for a sophisticated graduate path. considered one of its awesome beneficial properties is a big variety of concrete examples. The booklet incorporates a variety of new effects and examples that have now not seemed in other places, in addition to discussions of a few vital open questions within the box.

Download Surfaces With Constant Mean Curvature by Katsuei Kenmotsu PDF

By Katsuei Kenmotsu

The suggest curvature of a floor is an extrinsic parameter measuring how the outside is curved within the three-d house. A floor whose suggest curvature is 0 at each one element is a minimum floor, and it's identified that such surfaces are types for cleaning soap movie. there's a wealthy and famous conception of minimum surfaces. A floor whose suggest curvature is continuing yet nonzero is bought after we try and reduce the world of a closed floor with no altering the quantity it encloses. a simple instance of a floor of continuing suggest curvature is the sector. A nontrivial instance is equipped by way of the consistent curvature torus, whose discovery in 1984 gave a strong incentive for learning such surfaces. Later, many examples of continuous suggest curvature surfaces have been found utilizing numerous tools of study, differential geometry, and differential equations. it really is now turning into transparent that there's a wealthy thought of surfaces of continuous suggest curvature.

In this publication, the writer offers a number of examples of continuous suggest curvature surfaces and strategies for learning them. Many finely rendered figures illustrate the consequences and make allowance the reader to imagine and higher comprehend those attractive items.

Download The Radon Transform by Sigurdur Helgason (auth.) PDF

By Sigurdur Helgason (auth.)

The first variation of this booklet has been out of print for your time and i've determined to persist with the publisher's variety recommendation to arrange a brand new version. Many examples with particular inversion formulation and diversity theo­ rems were further, and the group-theoretic standpoint emphasised. for instance, the imperative geometric standpoint of the Poisson imperative for the disk results in attention-grabbing analogies with the X-ray remodel in Euclidean 3-space. to maintain the introductory taste of the publication the quick and self-contained bankruptcy Von Schwartz' distributions has been additional. the following §5 offers proofs of the wanted effects in regards to the Riesz potentials whereas §§3-4 boost the instruments from Fourier research following heavily the account in Hormander's books (1963] and [1983]. there's a few overlap with my books (1984] and [1994b] which even if count seriously on Lie workforce idea. the current publication is far extra simple. i'm indebted to Sine Jensen for a serious studying of elements of the manuscript and to Hilgert and Schlichtkrull for concrete contributions males­ tioned at particular locations within the textual content. eventually I thank Jan Wetzel and Bonnie Friedman for his or her sufferer and skillful guidance of the manuscript.
