Ricci flow and geometric applications : Cetraro, Italy 2010 by Michel Boileau( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting some impressive recent achievements in differential geometry and topology, this volume focuses on results obtained using techniques based on Ricci flow. These ideas are at the core of the study of differentiable manifolds. Several very important open problems and conjectures come from this area and the techniques described herein are used to face and solve some of them. The book's four chapters are based on lectures given by leading researchers in the field of geometric analysis and low-dimensional geometry/topology, respectively offering an introduction to: the differentiable sphere theorem (G. Besson), the geometrization of 3-manifolds (M. Boileau), the singularities of 3-dimensional Ricci flows (C. Sinestrari), and Kähler-Ricci flow (G. Tian). The lectures will be particularly valuable to young researchers interested in differential manifolds
Ricci flow and the Poincaré conjecture by John Morgan( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides full details of a complete proof of the Poincare Conjecture following Perelman's three preprints. After a lengthy introduction that outlines the entire argument, the book is divided into four parts. The first part reviews necessary results from Riemannian geometry and Ricci flow, including much of Hamilton's work. The second part starts with Perelman's length function, which is used to establish crucial non-collapsing theorems. Then it discusses the classification of non-collapsed, ancient solutions to the Ricci flow equation. The third part concerns the existence of Ricci flow with surgery for all positive time and an analysis of the topological and geometric changes introduced by surgery. The last part follows Perelman's third preprint to prove that when the initial Riemannian 3-manifold has finite fundamental group, Ricci flow with surgery becomes extinct after finite time. The proofs of the Poincare Conjecture and the closely related 3-dimensional spherical space-form conjecture are then immediate." "With the large amount of background material that is presented and the detailed versions of the central arguments, this book is suitable for all mathematicians from advanced graduate students to specialists in geometry and topology."--Jacket
Symplectic 4-manifolds and algebraic surfaces : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Cetraro, Italy, September 2-10, 2003 by Denis Auroux( Book )

24 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern approaches to the study of symplectic 4-manifolds and algebraic surfaces combine a wide range of techniques and sources of inspiration. Gauge theory, symplectic geometry, pseudoholomorphic curves, singularity theory, moduli spaces, braid groups, monodromy, in addition to classical topology and algebraic geometry, combine to make this one of the most vibrant and active areas of research in mathematics. It is our hope that the five lectures of the present volume given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Cetraro, Italy, September 2-10, 2003 will be useful to people working in related areas of mathematics and will become standard references on these topics. The volume is a coherent exposition of an active field of current research focusing on the introduction of new methods for the study of moduli spaces of complex structures on algebraic surfaces, and for the investigation of symplectic topology in dimension 4 and higher
Canonical metrics in Kähler geometry by Gang Tian( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this monograph is to give an essentially self-contained introduction to the theory of canonical Kahler metrics on complex manifolds. It also presents the reader with some advanced topics in complex differential geometry not easily found elsewhere. The topics include Calabi-Futaki invariants, extremal Kahler metrics, the Calabi-Yau theorem on existence of Kahler Ricci-flat metrics, and recent progress on Kahler-Einstein metrics with positive scalar curvature. Applications of Kahler-Einstein metrics to the uniformization theory are also discussed." "Readers with a good general knowledge of differential geometry and partial differential equations should be able to grasp and appreciate the materials in this monograph."--Jacket

The geometrization conjecture by John Morgan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives a complete proof of the geometrization conjecture, which describes all compact 3-manifolds in terms of geometric pieces, i.e., 3-manifolds with locally homogeneous metrics of finite volume. The method is to understand the limits as time goes to infinity of Ricci flow with surgery. The first half of the book is devoted to showing that these limits divide naturally along incompressible tori into pieces on which the metric is converging smoothly to hyperbolic metrics and pieces that are locally more and more volume collapsed. The second half of the book is devoted to showing that the latter pieces are themselves geometric. This is established by showing that the Gromov-Hausdorff limits of sequences of more and more locally volume collapsed 3-manifolds are Alexandrov spaces of dimension at most 2 and then classifying these Alexandrov spaces. In the course of proving the geometrization conjecture, the authors provide an overview of the main results about Ricci flows with surgery on 3-dimensional manifolds, introducing the reader to this difficult material. The book also includes an elementary introduction to Gromov-Hausdorff limits and to the basics of the theory of Alexandrov spaces. In addition, a complete picture of the local structure of Alexandrov surfaces is developed. All of these important topics are of independent interest --Provided by publisher

Geometric analysis : in honor of Gang Tian's 60th birthday by Jingyi Chen( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume has a two-fold purpose. First, comprehensive survey articles provide a way for beginners to ease into the corresponding sub-fields. These are then supplemented by original works that give the more advanced readers a glimpse of the current research in geometric analysis and related PDEs. The book is of significant interest for researchers, including advanced Ph.D. students, working in geometric analysis. Readers who have a secondary interest in geometric analysis will benefit from the survey articles. The results included in this book will stimulate further advances in the subjects: geometric analysis, including complex differential geometry, symplectic geometry, PDEs with a geometric origin, and geometry related to topology.

Biological effects of plant residues with contrasting chemical compositions on plant and soil under humid tropical conditions by Guanglong Tian( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study on plant residues with contrasting chemical compositions was conducted under laboratory, growth chamber and humid tropical field conditions to understand the function of the soil fauna in the breakdown of plant residues, the cycling of nutrients, in particular nitrogen, and the performance of maize as a test crop. Leaves from ten agroforestry and fallow plant species with a wide range of chemical compositions (different C/N ratios and contents of lignin and polyphenols) were selected for laboratory incubations. Of the ten species, prunings from Acioa barteri, Gliricidia sepium and Leucaena leucocephala, maize (Zea mays) stover and rice (Oryza sativa) straw were selected for field and growth chamber experiments. Laboratory incubation showed that N mineralization was significantly correlated with initial N, polyphenol and lignin content of plant residues. Litterbag studies in the field showed that decomposition was also correlated with the activity of soil fauna. In the field the effect of polyphenols on the degradation of plant residues was less prominent than in the laboratory. In both growth chamber and field trials the breakdown of plant residues and nutrient release were enhanced in the presence of earthworms and millipedes. Application of plant residues increased populations of earthworms and ants. Stepwise regression illustrated populations of earthworms were negatively correlated with lignin:N ratio; populations of ants were positively correlated with N content of plant residues. Application of high C/N ratio and lignin content plant residues attracted termites. Millipedes were not influenced by the quality of plant residues. Addition of plant residues as mulch ameliorated the soil microclimate by lowering soil temperature and maintaining soil moisture. A strong mulching effect on the soil microclimate was associated with application of plant residues with high C/N ratio and lignin content. Increase in the amount of mineral N in the soil solution was recorded with application of plant residues with "high" or "low quality", but probably caused by different mechanisms. The N contribution of "high quality" materials mainly originated from their decomposition, whereas mulching effects on microclimate, which presumably promoted the degradation of soil organic matter, mainly accounted for the N contribution of "low quality" materials. There is a need to both consider the direct and indirect contributions of plant residues applied as mulch. It is concluded that a keen choice of plant residues in terms of nutritional effects and mulching-induced effects on soil microclimate is a prerequisite for the application of soil fauna-mediated decomposition towards synchronization of soil nutrient supply and crop nutrient demand

Actinide thermodynamics at elevated temperatures( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The postclosure chemical environment in the proposed Yucca Mountain repository is expected to experience elevated temperatures. Predicting migration of actinides is possible if sufficient, reliable thermodynamic data on hydrolysis and complexation are available for these temperatures. Data are scarce and scattered for 25 degrees C, and nonexistent for elevated temperatures. This collaborative project between LBNL and PNNL collects thermodynamic data at elevated temperatures on actinide complexes with inorganic ligands that may be present in Yucca Mountain. The ligands include hydroxide, fluoride, sulfate, phosphate and carbonate. Thermodynamic parameters of complexation, including stability constants, enthalpy, entropy and heat capacity of complexation, are measured with a variety of techniques including solvent extraction, potentiometry, spectrophotometry and calorimetry
