A co-publication of the AMS and Centre de Recherches Mathématiques
This book contains lecture notes from most of the courses presented at
the 50th anniversary edition of the Séminaire de
Mathématiques Supérieures in Montréal. This 2011
summer school was devoted to the analysis and geometry of metric
measure spaces, and featured much interplay between this subject and
the emergent topic of optimal transportation. In recent decades,
metric measure spaces have emerged as a fruitful source of
mathematical questions in their own right, and as indispensable tools
for addressing classical problems in geometry, topology, dynamical
systems, and partial differential equations. The summer school was
designed to lead young scientists to the research frontier concerning
the analysis and geometry of metric measure spaces, by exposing them
to a series of minicourses featuring leading researchers who
highlighted both the state-of-the-art and some of the exciting
challenges which remain.
This volume attempts to capture the excitement of the summer school itself, presenting the reader with glimpses into this active area of research and its connections with other branches of contemporary mathematics.
Titles in this series are co-published with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.
