Harmonic maps among Riemannian manifolds are recommendations of platforms of partial differential equations which seem in several contexts of differential geometry. They contain holomorphic maps, minimum surfaces, delta-models in physics. lately, they've got develop into strong instruments within the research of worldwide houses of Riemannian and Kahlerian manifolds. typical references for this topic are reviews, released in 1978 and 1988 via James Eells and Luc Lemaire. This booklet provides those reviews in one quantity with a quick complement reporting on a few fresh advancements within the thought. it really is either an creation to the topic and a resource of reference, supplying an equipped exposition of effects unfold all through greater than 800 papers.

Sub-Riemannian geometry (also often called Carnot geometry in France, and non-holonomic Riemannian geometry in Russia) has been an entire study area for fifteen years, with motivations and ramifications in different components of natural and utilized arithmetic, namely:
• keep an eye on concept • classical mechanics • Riemannian geometry (of which sub-Riemannian geometry constitutes a average generalization, and the place sub-Riemannian metrics might sound as restrict instances) • diffusion on manifolds • research of hypoelliptic operators • Cauchy-Riemann (or CR) geometry.
Although hyperlinks among those domain names were foreseen by way of many authors some time past, it's only lately that sub- Riemannian geometry has been well-known as a potential universal framework for these kinds of subject matters.
This booklet offers an advent to sub-Riemannian geometry and provides the state-of-the-art and open difficulties within the box. It includes 5 coherent and unique articles by means of the prime specialists:
• André Bellaïche: The tangent house in sub-Riemannian geometry • Mikhael Gromov: Carnot-Carathéodory areas noticeable from inside of • Richard Montgomery: Survey of singular geodesics • Héctor J. Sussmann: A cornucopia of 4-dimensional irregular sub-Riemannian minimizers • Jean-Michel Coron: Stabilization of controllable systems

This publication is an outgrowth of the actions of the guts for Geometry and Mathematical Physics (CGMP) at Penn kingdom from 1996 to 1998. the heart used to be created within the arithmetic division at Penn nation within the fall of 1996 for the aim of selling and helping the actions of researchers and scholars in and round geometry and physics on the college. The CGMP brings many viewers to Penn nation and has ties with different learn teams; it organizes weekly seminars in addition to annual workshops The booklet includes 17 contributed articles on present examine issues in various fields: symplectic geometry, quantization, quantum teams, algebraic geometry, algebraic teams and invariant conception, and personality istic periods. lots of the 20 authors have talked at Penn country approximately their examine. Their articles current new effects or speak about attention-grabbing perspec tives on fresh paintings. the entire articles were refereed within the common type of fine clinical journals. Symplectic geometry, quantization and quantum teams is one major subject of the booklet. a number of authors examine deformation quantization. As tashkevich generalizes Karabegov's deformation quantization of Kahler manifolds to symplectic manifolds admitting transverse polarizations, and stories the instant map in relation to semisimple coadjoint orbits. Bieliavsky constructs an specific star-product on holonomy reducible sym metric coadjoint orbits of an easy Lie staff, and he exhibits easy methods to con struct a star-representation which has fascinating holomorphic properties.
