Geometric topology : recent developments : lectures given on the 1st session of the Centro internazionale matematico estivo (C.I.M.E.) held at Montecatini Terme, Italy, June 4-12, 1990 by Jeff Cheeger( Book )

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 semi-simple 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 low-dimensional manifolds.

Metric Structures for Riemannian and Non-Riemannian Spaces. Modern Birkhauser Classics ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The first edition of this book is considered one of the most influential books in geometry in the last twenty years. Among the most substantial additions [of the 2/e] is a chapter on convergence of metric spaces with measures, and an appendix on analysis on metric spaces. In addition, numerous remarks, examples, proofs, and open problems are inserted throughout the book. The original text is preserved with new items conveniently indicated. This book is certain to be a source of inspiration for many researchers as well as required reading for students entering the subject." - "Mathematical Reviews"
Metric structures for Riemannian and non-Riemannian spaces by Mikhael Gromov( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Metric theory has undergone a dramatic phase transition when its focus moved from the foundations of real analysis to Riemannian geometry and algebraic topology, to the theory of infinite groups and probability theory. This title includes the material reflecting progress in the theory
