Résumé :
En juillet 1992, une desk Ronde de Géométrie Différentielle s'est tenue au CIRM de Luminy en l'honneur de Marcel Berger. Les conférences qui sont reproduites dans ces Actes recouvrent los angeles plupart des sujets abordés par Marcel Berger en Géométrie Différentielle et plus précisément : l'holonomie (Bryant), l. a. courbure [courbure sectionnelle confident (Grove), courbure sectionnelle négative (Abresch et Schroeder, Ballmann et Ledrappier), courbure de Ricci négative (Lohkamp), courbure scalaire (Delanoë, Hebey et Vaugon), courbure totale (Shioya)], le spectre du laplacien (Anné, Colin de Verdière, Matheus, Pesce), les inégalités isopérimétriques et les systoles (Calabi, Carron, Gromov), ainsi que quelques sujets annexes [espaces d'Alexandrov (Shiohama et Tanaka, Yamaguchi), elastica (Koiso), géométrie sous-riemannienne (Valère et Pelletier)]. Les auteurs sont pour los angeles plupart des géomètres confirmés, dont plusieurs ont travaillé avec Marcel Berger, mais aussi quelques jeunes. Plusieurs articles (Bryant, Colin, Grove...) contiennent une présentation synthétique des résultats récents dans le domaine concerné, pour mieux les rendre available à un public de non-spécialistes.

Proceedings of the around desk in Differential Geometry in honour of Marcel Berger
July 1992, a around desk in Differential Geometry was once geared up on the CIRM in Luminy (France) in honour of Marcel Berger. In those complaints, contributions disguise lots of the fields studied by means of Marcel Berger in Differential Geometry, particularly : holonomy (Bryant), curvature [positive sectional curvature (Grove), detrimental sectional curvature (Abresch and Schroeder, Ballmann and Ledrappier), destructive Ricci curvature (Lohkamp), scalar curvature (Delanoë, Hebey and Vaugon), overall curvature (Shioya)], spectrum of the Laplacian (Anné, Colin de Verdière, Matheus, Pesce), isoperimetric and isosystolic inequalities (Calabi, Carron, Gromov), including a few comparable topics [Alexandrov areas (Shiohama and Tanaka, Yamaguchi), elastica (Koiso), subriemannian geometry (Valère and Pelletier)]. Authors are commonly geometers who labored with Marcel Berger at it slow, and likewise a few more youthful ones. a few papers (Bryant, Colin, Grove...) contain a quick assessment of contemporary leads to their specific fields, with the non-experts in brain.

2. at the contributions

Among the above pointed out meetings, 5 aren't reproduced in those notes,
namely these through Christopher CROKE, Detlef GROMOLL, Jerry KAZDAN, Ren´e

Some of them were released in different places, particularly :

Conjugacy and tension for manifolds with a parallel vector field
J. Differential Geom. 39 (1994), 659-680.
Lp pinching and the geometry of compact Riemannian manifolds
Comment. Math. Helvetici sixty nine (1994), 249-271.
On the opposite hand, Professor SHIOHAMA, who was once invited to offer a conversation, had
not been capable of come to the desk Ronde. He sought after however to provide a
contribution to Marcel Berger. it's been additional to this quantity.

Elementary Euclidean Geometry: An Introduction

This can be a actual advent to the geometry of traces and conics within the Euclidean airplane. traces and circles give you the start line, with the classical invariants of common conics brought at an early degree, yielding a extensive subdivision into kinds, a prelude to the congruence category. A habitual subject matter is the best way traces intersect conics.

The calculus of variations in the large

Morse thought is a learn of deep connections among research and topology. In its classical shape, it offers a courting among the severe issues of yes soft features on a manifold and the topology of the manifold. it's been utilized by geometers, topologists, physicists, and others as a remarkably potent instrument to review manifolds.

Example text

1, we need to establish uniform convergence of C the series gJ\I = j∈J\I gjC in an arbitrarily small open neighborhood in Cn,1 of any given point z0 ∈ UI . Here, we may work with respect to any norm on Cn,1 which may even depend on z0 . By homogeneity, we can assume that z0 = (0, . . , 0, 1),6 and as a norm we take the Hermitian inner product , h from the standard identification of Cn,1 with Cn × C. 2. Lemma. — Let z = z0 + ξ ∈ Cn,1 with ξ , ξ . h ≤ a2 . Then, for any e ∈ Rn,1 h with e , e = 1, the following inequalities hold (i) e,z 2 C− 2 C e , z0 xC j (z) − xj (z0 ) (ii) ≤a a+ √ 2 2 1 + 2 e , z0 C , √ ≤ 2a a + 2 1 + xj (z0 ) .

In fact, the expression for R# shows directly5 that for sufficiently small values of ˆi over the stratum Si of the divisor which is η the sectional curvature of any plane E spanned by the unit normal vector of Sˆi and the tangent vector of the fibration Sˆi → Si is approximately −η −2 . Moreover, the region where the sectional curvature gets large in absolute value concentrates more and more along the preimage of the divisor. This behaviour is best understood when considering the Gauß–Bonnet Theorem, figuring out what it means to add a cross–cap of size ∼ η to a fixed ball orthogonal to Si ⊂ Hn−2 .
