Functional analysis on the eve of the 21st century by S. G Gindikin( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A four-day conference, "Functional Analysis on the Eve of the Twenty First Century," was held at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, from October 24 to 27, 1993, in honor of the eightieth birthday of Professor Israel Moiseyevich Gelfand. He was born in Krasnye Okna, near Odessa, on September 2, 1913. Israel Gelfand has played a crucial role in the development of functional analysis during the last half-century. His work and his philosophy have in fact helped to shape our understanding of the term "functional analysis" itself, as has the celebrated journal Functional Analysis and Its Applications, which he edited for many years. Functional analysis appeared at the beginning of the century in the classic papers of Hilbert on integral operators. Its crucial aspect was the geometric interpretation of families of functions as infinite-dimensional spaces, and of op erators (particularly differential and integral operators) as infinite-dimensional analogues of matrices, directly leading to the geometrization of spectral theory. This view of functional analysis as infinite-dimensional geometry organically included many facets of nineteenth-century classical analysis, such as power series, Fourier series and integrals, and other integral transforms
Lie algebras, vertex operator algebras, and related topics : a conference in honor of J. Lepowsky and R. Wilson on Lie algebras, vertex operator algebras, and related topics, August 14-18, 2015, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN by Katrina Barron( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of the conference on Lie Algebras, Vertex Operator Algebras, and Related Topics, celebrating the 70th birthday of James Lepowsky and Robert Wilson, held from August 14-18, 2015, at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana. Since their seminal work in the 1970s, Lepowsky and Wilson, their collaborators, their students, and those inspired by their work, have developed an amazing body of work intertwining the fields of Lie algebras, vertex algebras, number theory, theoretical physics, quantum groups, the representation theory of finite simple groups

The eyes of midnight : a time of terror in East Tennessee by Robert L Wilson( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 120 years after the White Caps terrorized Sevier County in East Tennessee, longtime residents still won't talk about the lawless band of vigilantes who would disguise themselves with a full-body covering of white fabric with holes cut for the eyes. Though the description may summon images of the Ku Klux Klan, the White Caps focused their wrath on what they perceived as immoral behavior--although some of their activity targeted blacks and Jews, among others. However, what started out as a fairly mild enforcement of Victorian values in an isolated, God-fearing community became much, much more
