Different Faces of Geometry (International Mathematical by Simon Donaldson,Yakov Eliashberg,Misha Gromov

By Simon Donaldson,Yakov Eliashberg,Misha Gromov

Different Faces of Geometry - edited by way of the realm well known geometers S. Donaldson, Ya. Eliashberg, and M. Gromov - offers the present kingdom, new effects, unique rules and open questions from the next very important themes in glossy geometry:

Amoebas and Tropical Geometry
Convex Geometry and Asymptotic Geometric Analysis
Differential Topology of 4-Manifolds
3-Dimensional touch Geometry
Floer Homology and Low-Dimensional Topology
Kahler Geometry
Lagrangian and unique Lagrangian Submanifolds
Refined Seiberg-Witten Invariants.

These it seems that assorted subject matters have a typical characteristic in that they're all parts of fascinating present job. The Editors have attracted a magnificent array of major experts to writer chapters for this quantity: G. Mikhalkin (USA-Canada-Russia), V.D. Milman (Israel) and A.A. Giannopoulos (Greece), C. LeBrun (USA), Ko Honda (USA), P. Ozsvath (USA) and Z. Szabo (USA), C. Simpson (France), D. Joyce (UK) and P. Seidel (USA), and S. Bauer (Germany).

"One can distinguish quite a few subject matters operating throughout the assorted contributions. there's a few emphasis on invariants outlined by means of elliptic equations and their functions in low-dimensional topology, symplectic and get in touch with geometry (Bauer, Seidel, Ozsvath and Szabo). those principles input, extra tangentially, within the articles of Joyce, Honda and LeBrun. right here and somewhere else, in addition to explaining the fast advances which have been made, the articles exhibit an excellent experience of the giant parts mendacity past our present realizing.
Simpson's article emphasizes the necessity for attention-grabbing new buildings (in that case of Kahler and algebraic manifolds), some degree that's additionally made by means of Bauer within the context of 4-manifolds and the "11/8 conjecture."
LeBrun's article provides one other viewpoint on 4-manifold idea, through Riemannian geometry, and the tough open questions regarding the geometry of even "well-known" 4-manifolds.
There also are amazing contrasts among the articles. The authors have taken diverse methods: for instance, the considerate essay of Simpson, the recent examine result of LeBrun and the thorough expositions with homework difficulties of Honda.
One may also reflect on the variations within the kind of arithmetic. within the articles of Honda, Giannopoulos and Milman, and Mikhalkin, the "geometry" is found in a really shiny and tangible method; combining respectively with topology, research and algebra. The papers of Bauer and Seidel, nonetheless, makes the purpose that algebraic and algebro-topological abstraction (triangulated different types, spectra) can play an incredible position in very unforeseen methods in concrete geometric problems." - From the Preface by way of the Editors
