Strong rigidity of locally symmetric spaces by
George D Mostow(
Book
)
17 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Locally symmetric spaces are generalizations of spaces of constant curvature. In this book the author presents the proof of a remarkable phenomenon, which he calls "strong rigidity": this is a stronger form of the deformation rigidity that has been investigated by Selberg, CalabiVesentini, Weil, Borel, and Raghunathan. The proof combines the theory of semisimple Lie groups, discrete subgroups, the geometry of E. Cartan's symmetric Riemannian spaces, elements of ergodic theory, and the fundamental theorem of projective geometry as applied to Tit's geometries. In his proof the author introduces two new notions having independent interest: one is "pseudoisometries"; the other is a notion of a quasiconformal mapping over the division algebra K (K equals real, complex, quaternion, or Cayley numbers). The author attempts to make the account accessible to readers with diverse backgrounds, and the book contains capsule descriptions of the various theories that enter the proof

Commensurabilities among lattices in PU (1,n) by
Pierre Deligne(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first part of this monograph is devoted to a characterization of hypergeometriclike functions, that is, twists of hypergeometric functions in nvariables. These are treated as an (n+1) dimensional vector space of multivalued locally holomorphic functions defined on the space of n+3 tuples of distinct points on the projective line P modulo, the diagonal section of Auto P=m. For n=1, the characterization may be regarded as a generalization of Riemann's classical theorem characterizing hypergeometric functions by their exponents at three singular points. This characterization permits the authors to compare monodromy groups corresponding to different parameters and to prove commensurability modulo inner automorphisms of PU(1,n). The book includes an investigation of elliptic and parabolic monodromy groups, as well as hyperbolic monodromy groups. The former play a role in the proof that a surprising number of lattices in PU(1,2) constructed as the fundamental groups of compact complex surfaces with constant holomorphic curvature are in fact conjugate to projective monodromy groups of hypergeometric functions. The characterization of hypergeometriclike functions by their exponents at the divisors "at infinity" permits one to prove generalizations in nvariables of the Kummer identities for n1 involving quadratic and cubic changes of the variable

From Coxeter diagrams to Kummer identities by
George D Mostow(
Visual
)
3 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
G.D. Mostow, who served as AMS president from 1986 to 1988, illustrates how various branches of mathematics, while seeming quite separate, can in fact have profound connections. Beginning with diagrams for finite groups generated by complex reflections, first introduced by Coxeter in 1966, Mostow describes how this line of research eventually led him and his colleagues to the Kummer identities for hypergeometric functions
