By Masaki Kashiwara

Masaki Kashiwara is absolutely one of many masters of the speculation of $D$-modules, and he has created a very good, available access element to the topic. the idea of $D$-modules is the most important viewpoint, bringing principles from algebra and algebraic geometry to the research of platforms of differential equations. it's always utilized in conjunction with microlocal research, as a number of the very important theorems are most sensible said or proved utilizing those strategies. the idea has been used very effectively in functions to illustration idea. right here, there's an emphasis on $b$-functions. those appear in quite a few contexts: quantity conception, research, illustration thought, and the geometry and invariants of prehomogeneous vector areas. probably the most vital effects on $b$-functions have been acquired via Kashiwara. A scorching subject from the mid `70s to mid `80s, it has now moved a section extra into the mainstream. Graduate scholars and learn mathematicians will locate that engaged on the topic within the two-decade period has given Kashiwara an outstanding point of view for featuring the subject to the final mathematical public.

Fibre bundles, now a vital part of differential geometry, also are of serious value in glossy physics--such as in gauge thought. This booklet, a succinct advent to the topic via renown mathematician Norman Steenrod, was once the 1st to provide the topic systematically. It starts with a basic creation to bundles, together with such issues as differentiable manifolds and overlaying areas.

**The Geometry of Total Curvature on Complete Open Surfaces**

This autonomous account of contemporary rules in differential geometry indicates how they are often used to appreciate and expand classical leads to imperative geometry. The authors discover the impression of overall curvature at the metric constitution of whole, non-compact Riemannian 2-manifolds, even supposing their paintings might be prolonged to extra common areas.

The current ebook is meant as a textbook and reference paintings on 3 issues within the name. including a quantity in growth on "Groups and Geometric research" it supersedes my "Differential Geometry and Symmetric Spaces," released in 1962. because that point numerous branches of the topic, really the functionality thought on symmetric areas, have built considerably.

Finally, the condition R(X,Y) • R = 0 which holds on M passes down to the factors Mo, M i , . . , Mr and hence these spaces are also semi-symmetric. , there is exactly one invariant subspace on which the primitive holonomy group Hp acts irreducibly. ) Moreover, a simple leaf is said to be in infinitesimally irreducible if at least at one point the infinitesimal holonomy group acts irreducibly, or equivalently, at least at one point p the ^-decomposition consists only of the space TpM = Zp. 6 (The local decomposition using the infinitesimal or the local holonomy group) For every semi-symmetric space ( M , # ) there exists a dense open subset U such that around the points of U the space is locally isometric to a direct product of semi-symmetric manifolds of the form M 0 x Mi x ••• x M r , where M 0 is a Euclidean space and the manifolds Mi, i > 0, are in finitesimally irreducible simple semi-symmetric leaves.
