Manifolds of nonpositive curvature by Werner Ballmann( Book )

16 editions published in 1985 in 3 languages and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a complete and self-contained description of new results in the theory of manifolds of nonpositive curvature. It is based on lectures delivered by M. Gromov at the Collge de France in Paris. Among others these lectures threat local and global rigidity problems (e.g., a generalization of the famous Mostow rigidity theorem) and finiteness results for manifolds of finite volume. V. Schroeder wrote up these lectures, including complete and detailed proofs. A lot of background material is added to the first lectures. Therefore this book may also serve as an introduction to the subject of nonpositively curved manifolds. The latest progress in this area is reflected in the article of W. Ballmann describing the structure of manifolds of higher rank
Elements of asymptotic geometry by Sergei Buyalo( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asymptotic geometry is the study of metric spaces from a large scale point of view, where the local geometry does not come into play. An important class of model spaces are the hyperbolic spaces (in the sense of Gromov), for which the asymptotic geometry is nicely encoded in the boundary at infinity. In the first part of this book, in analogy with the concepts of classical hyperbolic geometry, the authors provide a systematic account of the basic theory of Gromov hyperbolic spaces. These spaces have been studied extensively in the last twenty years, and have found applications in group theory, geometric topology, Kleinian groups, as well as dynamics and rigidity theory. In the second part of the book, various aspects of the asymptotic geometry of arbitrary metric spaces are considered. It turns out that the boundary at infinity approach is not appropriate in the general case, but dimension theory proves useful for finding interesting results and applications. The text leads concisely to some central aspects of the theory. Each chapter concludes with a separate section containing supplementary results and bibliographical notes. Here the theory is also illustrated with numerous examples as well as relations to the neighboring fields of comparison geometry and geometric group theory. The book is based on lectures the authors presented at the Steklov Institute in St. Petersburg and the University of Zurich. It addressed to graduate students and researchers working in geometry, topology, and geometric group theory
Math.ch/100 : Schweizerische Mathematische Gesellschaft, 1910-2010 = Société mathématique suisse = Swiss Mathematical Society( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book includes twenty-three essays to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Swiss Mathematical Society. The life and work of outstanding mathematicians, extraordinary conferences held in Switzerland such as the three International Congresses of Mathematicians, the influence of women in Swiss mathematics are among the topics. The articles, including many photographs, old and recent, give a vivid picture of hundred years of mathematical life in Switzerland. Dieses Buch ist eine Festschrift zum 100-jährigen Bestehen der Schweizerischen Mathematischen Gesellschaft. Es enthält dreiundzwanzig Beiträge zur Mathematik in der Schweiz. Geschichtliches und Biographisches über herausragende Mathematiker an Schweizer Universitäten, grosse Tagungen wie etwa die drei Internationalen Mathematiker-Kongresse, die Rolle der Frauen in der Schweizer Mathematik sind nur einige Themen. Insgesamt vermitteln die verschiedenen Essays zusammen mit den zahlreichen Abbildungen ein höchst lebendiges und anschauliches Panorama eines Jahrhunderts Schweizer Mathematik. Cet ouvrage a été édité pour marquer le 100e anniversaire de la Société Mathématique Suisse. Il rassemble vingt-trois articles consacrés aux mathématiques en Suisse. Parmi beaucoup d'autres choses, les écrits évoquent la vie et l'œuvre de grands mathématiciens des universités suisses, les grands événements, dont les trois Congrès internationaux de mathématiques, ou encore la présence des femmes dans les mathématiques suisses. Agrémenté de nombreuses photos, anciennes et récentes, ce livre donne une image très vivante de cent années de vie mathématique en Suisse
