Symplectic geometry and mirror symmetry : proceedings of the 4th KIAS Annual International Conference, Korea Institute for Advanced Study, Seoul, South Korea, 14-18 August 2000 by K Fukaya( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1993, M Kontsevich proposed a conceptual framework for explaining the phenomenon of mirror symmetry. Mirror symmetry had been discovered by physicists in string theory as a duality between families of three-dimensional Calabi-Yau manifolds. Kontsevich's proposal uses Fukaya's construction of the A 8 -category of Lagrangian submanifolds on the symplectic side and the derived category of coherent sheaves on the complex side. The theory of mirror symmetry was further enhanced by physicists in the language of D-branes and also by Strominger-Yau-Zaslow in the geometric set-up of (special) Lagran
Canonical metrics in Kähler geometry by Gang Tian( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 330 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
Ricci flow and geometric applications : Cetraro, Italy 2010 by Michel Boileau( )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 305 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 278 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 )

21 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 246 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
A mathematician and his mathematical work : selected papers of S.S. Chern by Shiing-Shen Chern( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is about the life and work of Shiing-Shen Chern (1911–), one of the leading mathematicians of this century. The book contains personal accounts by some friends, together with a summary of the mathematical works by Chern himself. Besides a selection of the mathematical papers the book also contains all his papers published after 1988
The geometrization conjecture by John Morgan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 145 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
