    AMS/IP Studies in Advanced Mathematics
    Volume: 422008; 432 pp
    MSC: Primary 05; 08; 11; 14; 22; 35; 37; 80;

    This volume consists of the proceedings of the Third International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians, held at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in December 2004. The Congress brought together eminent Chinese and overseas mathematicians to discuss the latest developments in pure and applied mathematics.

    This two-part proceedings contains the contents of lectures given by the plenary speakers and the invited speakers—the major portion comprising new results—together with some expository and survey articles. Eleven major topics are treated: algebra, number theory and cryptography; algebraic geometry and algebraic topology; geometric analysis; complex analysis and complex geometry; harmonic analysis and functional analysis; applied mathematics; dynamical systems, fractals and wavelets; numerical analysis; PDE; probability, statistics, and financial mathematics; and education.

    Titles in this series are co-published with International Press of Boston, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
