Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsIsrael Mathematical Conference ProceedingsVolume: 554; 2011; 284 ppMSC: Primary 35; 53; 83
The papers in this volume cover a wide variety of topics in differential geometry, general relativity, and partial differential equations. In addition, there are several articles dealing with various aspects of Lie groups and mathematics physics. Taken together, the articles provide the reader with a panorama of activity in general relativity and partial differential equations, drawn by a number of leading figures in the field.
The companion volume (Contemporary Mathematics, Volume 553) is devoted to function theory and optimization.
This book is copublished with BarIlan University (RamatGan, Israel).
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in complex analysis, PDE, and general relativity.
