A spinorial approach to Riemannian and conformal geometry by J.-P Bourguignon( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book gives an elementary and comprehensive introduction to Spin Geometry, with particular emphasis on the Dirac operator which plays a fundamental role in differential geometry and mathematical physics. After a self-contained presentation of the basic algebraic, geometrical, analytical and topological ingredients, a systematic study of the spectral properties of the Dirac operator on compact spin manifolds is carried out. The classical estimates on eigenvalues and their limiting cases are discussed next, highlighting the subtle interplay of spinors and special geometric structures. Several applications of these ideas are presented, including spinorial proofs of the Positive Mass Theorem or the classification of positive Kähler-Einstein contact manifolds. Representation theory is used to explicitly compute the Dirac spectrum of compact symmetric spaces. The special features of the book include a unified treatment of Spin$^\mathrm c$ and conformal spin geometry (with special emphasis on the conformal covariance of the Dirac operator), an overview with proofs of the theory of elliptic differential operators on compact manifolds based on pseudodifferential calculus, a spinorial characterization of special geometries, and a self-contained presentation of the representation-theoretical tools needed in order to apprehend spinors. This book will help advanced graduate students and researchers to get more familiar with this beautiful, though not sufficiently known, domain of mathematics with great relevance to both theoretical physics and geometry

Dynamics, games and science by J.-P Bourguignon( )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this volume is research carried out as part of the program Mathematics of Planet Earth, which provides a platform to showcase the essential role of mathematics in addressing problems of an economic and social nature and creating a context for mathematicians and applied scientists to foster mathematical and interdisciplinary developments that will be necessary to tackle a myriad of issues and meet future global economic and social challenges. Earth is a planet with dynamic processes in its mantle, oceans and atmosphere creating climate, causing natural disasters, and influencing fundamental aspects of life and life-supporting systems. In addition to these natural processes, human activity has developed highly complex systems, including economic and financial systems; the World Wide Web; frameworks for resource management, transportation, energy production and utilization; health care delivery, and social organizations. This development has increased to the point where it impacts the stability and equilibrium in human societies. Issues such as financial and economic crisis, sustainability, management of resources, risk analysis, and global integration have come to the fore. Written by some of the world's leading specialists, this book presents the proceedings of the International Conference and Advanced School Planet Earth, Dynamics, Games and Science II, held in Lisbon, Portugal, 28 August -6 September 2013, which was organized by the International Center of Mathematics (CIM) as a partner institution of the international program Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013. The book describes the state of the art in advanced research and ultimate techniques in modeling natural, economic and social phenomena. It constitutes a tool and a framework for researchers and graduate students, both in mathematics and applied sciences, focusing mainly on dynamical systems, game theory, and applied sciences

Calcul variationnel by J.-P Bourguignon( Book )

24 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in French and Undetermined and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ces notes de cours en onze chapitres se décomposent naturellement en trois parties qu'il est bon d'aborder avec des états d'esprit assez différents. La première intitulée "Le cadre analytique", regroupe les chapitres I, II et III. Elle se propose d'amplifier et de fortifier les connaissances antérieures des étudiants sur les fondements de l'analyse. La deuxième, intitulée "Le cadre géométrique", couvre les chapitres IV, V, VI et VII et introduit une démarche et des concepts plus nouveaux. Elle suppose la pratique de nombreux exercices (dont certains proposés dans ces notes de cours) pour se persuader que parler "en prose" tout en le sachant n'est finalement pas chose si difficile. La troisième enfin, intitulée "Le calcul des variations", englobe les chapitres VIII, IX, X et XI, (et est le véritable aboutissement du cours). Elle ouvre sur un champ très large d'applications, et c'est cette variété qui fait la force des théorèmes présentés."--Page 4 de la couverture

Dirac operators: Yesterday and Today : proceedings of the summer school and workshop, CAMS-AUB, Lebanon, August 27- September 7, 2001( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume represents the proceedings of a summer school and workshop on Dirac operators held at the American University of Beirut in 2001. An introduction to all necessary background material to begin research in Dirac operators is presented including elementary differential geometry, Clifford algebras, Lie groups, special geometries, leading to a presentation of the fundamental role of Dirac operators in the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem and particle physics. More advanced topics are presented in the proceedings of the workshop where, for example, topics on the spectrum of Dirac operators, pseudo-Riemannian geometry, and first eigenvalue estimates are presented. This book is suitable for self-study by students and non-experts as a panorama on Dirac operators, but also contains, for experts, an outstanding bibliography on the subject."--Publisher's website
Comment j'ai détesté les maths by Olivier Peyon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les maths vous ont toujours barbé ? Vous avez toujours pensé qu'être nul en maths était une fatalité ? Bref vous les avez toujours détestées ! On aurait pu se contenter d'en rire si elles n'avaient pris une telle place dans notre société : Apple, Google, Goldman Sachs ne sont plus qu'algorithmes et formules mathématiques. Comment les maths en sont-elles arrivées à souffrir d'une telle désaffection au moment même où elles dirigent le monde ? A travers un voyage aux quatre coins du monde avec les plus grands mathématiciens dont Cédric Villani (Médaille Fields 2010), Comment j'ai détesté les maths nous raconte comment les mathématiques ont bouleversé notre monde, pour le meilleur... et parfois pour le pire."
