    Contemporary Mathematics
    Volume: 6392015; 369 pp
    MSC: Primary 51; 32; 20;

    This volume contains the proceedings of the ICTS Program: Groups, Geometry and Dynamics, held December 3–16, 2012, at CEMS, Almora, India. The activity was an academic tribute to Ravi S. Kulkarni on his turning seventy.

    Articles included in this volume, both introductory and advanced surveys, represent the broad area of geometry that encompasses a large portion of group theory (finite or otherwise) and dynamics in its proximity. These areas have been influenced by Kulkarni's ideas and are closely related to his work and contribution.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry group theory and related areas.
