Inspired by S.S. Chern : a memorial volume in honor of a great mathematician by Phillip Griffiths( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shiing-Shen Chern (1911-2004) 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. He was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1975; the Wolf Prize in mathematics in 1984; and the Shaw Prize in mathematical sciences in 2004. Chern's works span all the classic fields of diff
Contemporary trends in algebraic geometry and algebraic topology by Shiing-shen Chern( )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,086 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Wei-Liang Chow and Kuo-Tsai 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
Lectures on differential geometry by Shiing-Shen Chern( )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a translation of an authoritative introductory text based on a lecture series delivered by the renowned differential geometer, Professor S S Chern in Beijing University in 1980. The original Chinese text, authored by Professor Chern and Professor Wei-Huan Chen, was a unique contribution to the mathematics literature, combining simplicity and economy of approach with depth of contents. The present translation is aimed at a wide audience, including (but not limited to) advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, as well as physicists interested in the diverse applic
Riemann-Finsler geometry by Shiing-Shen Chern( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Riemann-Finsler geometry is a subject that concerns manifolds with Finsler metrics, including Riemannian metrics. It has applications in many fields of the natural sciences. Curvature is the central concept in Riemann-Finsler geometry. This invaluable textbook presents detailed discussions on important curvatures such as the Cartan torsion, the S-curvature, the Landsberg curvature and the Riemann curvature. It also deals with Finsler metrics with special curvature or geodesic properties, such as projectively flat Finsler metrics, Berwald metrics, Finsler metrics of scalar flag curvature or isotropic S-curvature, etc. Instructive examples are given in abundance, for further description of some important geometric concepts. The text includes the most recent results, although many of the problems discussed are classical."--BOOK JACKET

Complex manifolds without potential theory by Shiing-Shen Chern( Book )

49 editions published between 1967 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 933 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, 3-4#

The volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 7th Symposium on differential geometry and differential equations (DD7) held at the Nankai Institute of Mathematics, Tianjin, China, in 1986. Most of the contributions are original research papers on topics including elliptic equations, hyperbolic equations, evolution equations, non-linear equations from differential geometry and mechanics, micro-local analysis

An introduction to Riemann-Finsler geometry by David Dai-Wai BAO( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Riemannian geometry, measurements are made with both yardsticks and protractors. These tools are represented by a family of inner-products. In Riemann-Finsler 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
Seminar on nonlinear partial differential equations by S. S Chern( Book )

16 editions published in 1984 in English and German and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute was started in the Fall of 1982, one of the programs was "non-linear 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 Editor wishes to take this opportunity to thank all the speakers and the authors of the articles presented in this volume for their cooperation. S.S.

Tight and taut submanifolds : papers in memory of Nicolaas H. Kuiper( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tight and taut submanifolds form an important class of manifolds with special curvature properties, one that has been studied intensively by differential geometers since the 1950s. They are in some ways the simplest figures after convex bodies: for example, tight manifolds in Euclidean space are characterized by the fact that their intersection with any half-space is connected. Examples include many well-known manifolds such as spheres, Veronese surfaces, isoparametric hypersurfaces, and the cyclides of Dupin." "This book contains six in-depth articles by leading experts in the field and an extensive bibliography. It is dedicated to the memory of Nicolaas H. Kuiper, and the first paper is an unfinished but insightful exposition of the subject of tight immersions and maps, written by Kuiper." --Book Jacket
