"Flavors of Geometry is a volume of lectures on four geometrically influenced fields of mathematics that have experienced great development in recent years." "Growing out of a series of introductory lectures given at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in January 1995 and January 1996, the book presents chapters on hyperbolic geometry, dynamics in several complex variables, convex geometry, and volume estimation, by masters in their respective fields. Each lecture begins with a discussion of elementary concepts, examines the highlights of the field, and concludes with a look at more advanced material. The style and presentation of the chapters are clear and accessible, and most of the lectures are richly illustrated. Bibliographies and indexes are included to encourage further reading on the topics discussed." "These lectures are an excellent starting place for graduate students and will also interest researchers wanting a "flavor" of new developments in geometry."--Jacket.
