Complex manifolds without potential theory by
ShiingShen Chern(
Book
)
52 editions published between 1967 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews of the second edition: "The new methods of complex manifold theory are very useful tools for investigations in algebraic geometry, complex function theory, differential operators and so on. The differential geometrical methods of this theory were developed essentially under the influence of Professor S.S. Chern's works. The present book is a second edition ... It can serve as an introduction to, and a survey of, this theory and is based on the author's lectures held at the University of California and at a summer seminar of the Canadian Mathematical Congress ... The text is illustrated by many examples ... The book is warmly recommended to everyone interested in complex differential geometry." #Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, 41, 34#

Differential geometry in the large : seminar lectures, New York University, 1946 and Stanford University, 1956 by
Heinz Hopf(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These notes consist of two parts: 1) Selected Topics in Geometry, New York University 1946, Notes by Peter Lax. 2) Lectures on Differential Geometry in the Large, Stanford University 1956, Notes by J. W. Gray. They are reproduced here with no essential change. Heinz Hopf was a mathematician who recognized important mathema{u00AD} tical ideas and new mathematical phenomena through special cases. In the simplest background the central idea or the difficulty of a problem usually becomes crystal clear. Doing geometry in this fashion is a joy. Hopf's great insight allows this approach to lead to serious ma{u00AD} thematics, for most of the topics in these notes have become the star{u00AD} tingpoints of important further developments. I will try to mention a few. It is clear from these notes that Hopf laid the emphasis on poly{u00AD} hedral differential geometry. Most of the results in smooth differen{u00AD} tial geometry have polyhedral counterparts, whose understanding is both important and challenging. Among recent works I wish to mention those of Robert Connelly on rigidity, which is very much in the spirit of these notes (cf. R. Connelly, Conjectures and open questions in ri{u00AD} gidity, Proceedings of International Congress of Mathematicians, Hel{u00AD} sinki 1978, vol. 1, 407414 ) {u2022} A theory of area and volume of rectilinear'polyhedra based on de{u00AD} compositions originated with Bolyai and Gauss

An introduction to RiemannFinsler geometry by
David DaiWai Bao(
Book
)
17 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Riemannian geometry, measurements are made with both yardsticks and protractors. These tools are represented by a family of innerproducts. In RiemannFinsler geometry (or Finsler geometry for short), one is in principle equipped with only a family of Minkowski norms. So ardsticks are assigned but protractors are not. With such a limited tool kit, it is natural to wonder just how much geometry one can uncover and describe? It now appears that there is a reasonable answer. Finsler geometry encompasses a solid repertoire of rigidity and comparison theorems, most of them founded upon a fruitful analogue of the sectional curvature. There is also a bewildering array of explicit examples, illustrating many phenomena which admit only Finslerian interpretations. This book focuses on the elementary but essential items among these results. Much thought has gone into making the account a teachable one

20 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute was started in the Fall of 1982, one of the programs was "nonlinear partial differential equations". A seminar was organized whose audience consisted of graduate students of the University and mature mathematicians who are not experts in the field. This volume contains 18 of these lectures. An effort is made to have an adequate Bibliography for further information.

The WeiLiang Chow and KuoTsai Chen Memorial Conference was proposed and held by Prof S S Chern in Nankai Institute of Mathematics. It was devoted to memorializing those two outstanding and original Chinese mathematicians who had made significant contributions to algebraic geometry and algebraic topology, respectively. It also provided a forum for leading mathematicians to expound and discuss their views on new ideas in these fields, as well as trends in 21st Century mathematics. About 100 mathematicians participated in the conference, including Sir Michael Atiyah, Jacob Palis, Phillip Griffi

ShiingShen Chern (19112004) was one of the leading differential geometers of the twentieth century. In 1946, he founded the Mathematical Institute of Academia Sinica in Shanghai, which was later moved to Nanking. In 1981, he founded the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) at Berkeley and acted as the director until 1984. In 1985, he founded the Nankai Institute of Mathematics in Tianjin.

The collected papers of WeiLiang Chow by
WeiLiang Chow(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This invaluable book contains the collected papers of Prof WeiLiang Chow, an original and versatile mathematician of the 20th Century. Prof Chow's name has become a household word in mathematics because of the Chow ring, Chow coordinates, and Chow's theorem on analytic sets in projective spaces. The Chow ring has many advantages and is widely used in intersection theory of algebraic geometry. Chow coordinates have been a very versatile tool in many aspects of algebraic geometry. Chow's theorem  that a compact analytic variety in a projective space is algebraic  is justly famous; it shows the close analogy between algebraic geometry and algebraic number theory
