Metric and Differential Geometry grew out of a equally named convention held at Chern Institute of arithmetic, Tianjin and Capital common college, Beijing. a few of the contributions to this quantity conceal a vast variety of subject matters in metric and differential geometry, together with metric areas, Ricci circulation, Einstein manifolds, Kähler geometry, index thought, hypoelliptic Laplacian and analytic torsion.
Delivering a scientific advent to differential characters as brought via Cheeger and Simons, this article describes very important strategies similar to fiber integration, better dimensional holonomy, transgression, and the product constitution in a geometrical demeanour. Differential characters shape a version of what's these days referred to as differential cohomology, that's the mathematical constitution at the back of the better gauge theories in physics.
Summary usual polytopes stand on the finish of greater than millennia of geometrical learn, which all started with usual polygons and polyhedra. they're hugely symmetric combinatorial constructions with unique geometric, algebraic or topological houses; in lots of methods extra attention-grabbing than conventional normal polytopes and tessellations.
This booklet describes paintings, mostly that of the writer, at the characterization of closed 4-manifolds when it comes to ordinary invariants reminiscent of Euler attribute, basic workforce, and Stiefel–Whitney sessions. utilizing strategies from homological staff conception, the speculation of 3-manifolds and topological surgical procedure, infrasolvmanifolds are characterised as much as homeomorphism, and floor bundles are characterised as much as basic homotopy equivalence.
