Download E-books Blow-up Theory for Elliptic PDEs in Riemannian Geometry (MN-45) (Mathematical Notes) PDF

By Olivier Druet

Elliptic equations of serious Sobolev progress were the objective of research for many years simply because they've got proved to be of significant value in research, geometry, and physics. The equations studied listed here are of the well known Yamabe kind. They contain Schrödinger operators at the left hand facet and a serious nonlinearity at the correct hand side.

an important improvement within the research of such equations happened within the Eighties. It was once came across that the series splits right into a answer of the restrict equation--a finite sum of bubbles--and a leisure that converges strongly to 0 within the Sobolev area along with sq. integrable services whose gradient is additionally sq. integrable. This splitting is named the imperative idea for blow-up. during this e-book, the authors enhance the pointwise thought for blow-up. They introduce new rules and techniques that result in sharp pointwise estimates. those estimates have very important functions whilst facing sharp consistent difficulties (a case the place the strength is minimum) and compactness effects (a case the place the strength is arbitrarily large). The authors rigorously and punctiliously describe pointwise habit while the power is arbitrary.

meant to be as self-contained as attainable, this obtainable booklet will curiosity graduate scholars and researchers in a variety of mathematical fields.

Download E-books Foliations on Riemannian Manifolds and Submanifolds PDF

This monograph relies at the author's effects at the Riemannian ge­ ometry of foliations with nonnegative combined curvature and at the geometry of sub manifolds with turbines (rulings) in a Riemannian house of nonnegative curvature. the most concept is that such foliated (sub) manifolds might be decom­ posed whilst the measurement of the leaves (generators) is big. The equipment of research are generally artificial. The paintings is split into elements, together with seven chapters and 3 appendices. Appendix A used to be written together with V. Toponogov. half 1 is dedicated to the Riemannian geometry of foliations. within the first few sections of bankruptcy I we supply a survey of the elemental effects on foliated soft manifolds (Sections 1.1-1.3), and end in part 1.4 with a dialogue of the main challenge of this paintings: the function of Riemannian curvature within the examine of foliations on manifolds and submanifolds.

Download E-books Lectures on the Geometry of Manifolds PDF

By Liviu I Nicolaescu

The item of this booklet is to introduce the reader to a couple of crucial innovations of recent worldwide geometry. In writing it we had in brain the start graduate scholar prepared to focus on this very hard box of arithmetic. the required prerequisite is an effective wisdom of the calculus with a number of variables, linear algebra and a few straight forward point-set topology.We attempted to deal with a number of concerns. 1. The Language; 2. the issues; three. The tools; four. The Answers.Historically, the issues got here first, then got here the tools and the language whereas the solutions got here final. the distance constraints compelled us to alter this order and we needed to painfully limit our collection of subject matters to be coated. This approach constantly contains a lack of instinct and we attempted to stability this via supplying as many examples and images as frequently as attainable. We try out such a lot of our effects and methods on easy periods examples: surfaces (which might be simply visualized) and Lie teams (which will be elegantly algebraized). while attainable we current a number of features of an identical issue.We think solid familiarity with the formalism of differential geometry is actually invaluable in realizing and fixing concrete difficulties and the reason for this is that we offered it in a few element. each new suggestion is supported by means of concrete examples attention-grabbing not just from a tutorial element of view.Our curiosity is especially in international questions and particularly the interdependencegeometry ↔ topology, neighborhood ↔ global.We needed to strengthen many algebraico-topological thoughts within the particular context of tender manifolds. We spent an enormous element of this publication discussing the DeRham cohomology and its ramifications: Poincaré duality, intersection idea, measure thought, Thom isomorphism, attribute periods, Gauss-Bonnet and so on. We attempted to calculate the cohomology teams of as many as attainable concrete examples and we needed to do that with no counting on the robust gear of homotopy thought (CW-complexes etc.). a number of the proofs aren't the main direct ones however the capacity are often extra attention-grabbing than the ends. for instance in computing the cohomology of advanced grassmannians we lower back to classical invariant idea and used a few very good yet unadvertised outdated ideas.In the final a part of the booklet we talk about elliptic partial differential equations. This calls for a familiarity with useful research. We painstakingly defined the proofs of elliptic Lp and Hölder estimates (assuming a few deep result of harmonic research) for arbitrary elliptic operators with delicate coefficients. it isn't a “light meal” however the rules are important in lots of cases. We current a number of functions of those thoughts (Hodge thought, uniformization theorem). We finish with an in depth glance to a crucial classification of elliptic operators specifically the Dirac operators. We talk about their algebraic constitution in a few element, Weizenböck formulæ and plenty of concrete examples.

Download E-books Conformal Differential Geometry: Q-Curvature and Conformal Holonomy (Oberwolfach Seminars, Vol. 40) PDF

By Helga Baum

Conformal invariants (conformally invariant tensors, conformally covariant differential operators, conformal holonomy teams etc.) are of primary value in differential geometry and physics. recognized examples of such operators are the Yamabe-, the Paneitz-, the Dirac- and the twistor operator. the purpose of the seminar used to be to offer the fundamental rules and a few of the hot advancements round Q-curvature and conformal holonomy. The half on Q-curvature discusses its beginning, its relevance in geometry, spectral thought and physics. right here the effect of principles that have their foundation within the AdS/CFT-correspondence turns into seen.

The half on conformal holonomy describes contemporary class effects, its relation to Einstein metrics and to conformal Killing spinors, and comparable distinctive geometries.
