Beschreibung

In diesem Band der Encyclopaedia geben die Autoren einen Überblick über die wichtigsten Gebiete und Methoden der Differentialgeometrie. Einige der Themen, obwohl von großer Wichtigkeit, wurden bisher in Büchern mit einem großen Leserkreis nicht angesprochen. Der Aufbau des Buches gestattet es dem Leser, eine Auswahl zu treffen, anstatt es systematisch von Anfang bis Ende durchzulesen. Stärker als andere EMS-Bände spricht EMS 28 auch Studenten höherer Semester an.

Since the early work of Gauss and Riemann, differential geometry has grown into a vast network of ideas and approaches, encompassing local considerations such as differential invariants and jets as well as global ideas, such as Morse theory and characteristic classes. In this volume of the Encyclopaedia, the authors give a tour of the principal areas and methods of modern differential geomerty. The book is structured so that the reader may choose parts of the text to read and still take away a completed picture of some area of differential geometry. Beginning at the introductory level with curves in Euclidian space, the sections become more challenging, arriving finally at the advanced topics which form the greatest part of the book: transformation groups, the geometry of differential equations, geometric structures, the equivalence problem, the geometry of elliptic operators. Several of the topics are approaches which are now enjoying a resurgence, e.g. G-structures and contact geometry. As an overview of the major current methods of differential geometry, EMS 28 is a map of these different ideas which explains the interesting points at every stop. The authors' intention is that the reader should gain a new understanding of geometry from the process of reading this survey.

In this volume of the Encyclopaedia, the authors give a tour of the principal areas and methods of modern differential geometry. Some topics, though important, have not previously appeared in books with a general readership. The book is structured to allow the reader to skip about the text, rather than systematically reading from beginning to end. Compared to other EMS volumes, EMS 28 has an increased appeal for early graduate students.
