10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Geometric Topology can be defined to be the investigation of global properties of a further structure (e.g. differentiable, Riemannian, complex,algebraic etc.) one can impose on a topological manifold. At the C.I.M.E. session in Montecatini, in 1990, three courses of lectures were given onrecent developments in this subject which is nowadays emerging as one of themost fascinating and promising fields of contemporary mathematics. The notesof these courses are collected in this volume and can be described as: 1) the geometry and the rigidity of discrete subgroups in Lie groups especially in the case of lattices in semisimple groups; 2) the study of the critical points of the distance function and its appication to the understanding of the topology of Riemannian manifolds; 3) the theory of moduli space of instantons as a tool for studying the geometry of lowdimensional manifolds.

Quantitative embeddability of groups
by Sean Li
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide We study two problems about embedding groups into metric spaces. In the first problem, we study how the wreath product operation affects the compression bounds for two finitely generated groups when the target space is Lp for p ∈ [1,2]. We show that the wreath product preserves the positivity of compression exponents. Additionally, we give a simplified proof of the fact that the wreath product operation preserves coarse embeddability and the Haagerup property. Furthermore, we derive quantitative lower bounds for each property in terms of the lower bounds for the two groups that compose the wreath product more
