Book DetailsAMS/IP Studies in Advanced MathematicsVolume: 42; 2008; 432 ppMSC: 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 twopart 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.ReadershipResearch mathematicians interested in all areas of advanced mathematics.
