Book DetailsEMS IRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical PhysicsVolume: 22; 2014; 460 ppMSC: Primary 01; 35; 37; 47; 51;
This volume presents surveys, written by experts in the field, on various classical and modern aspects of Hilbert geometry. They assume several points of view: Finsler geometry, calculus of variations, projective geometry, dynamical systems, and others. Some fruitful relations between Hilbert geometry and other subjects in mathematics are emphasized, including Teichmüller spaces, convexity theory, Perron–Frobenius theory, representation theory, partial differential equations, coarse geometry, ergodic theory, algebraic groups, Coxeter groups, geometric group theory, Lie groups and discrete group actions.
This book is addressed to both students who want to learn the theory and researchers in this area.
A publication of the European Mathematical Society. Distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in Hilbert geometry.
