Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 621; 2014; 226 ppMSC: Primary 14; 53; 55;
The influence of Solomon Lefschetz (1884–1972) in geometry and topology 40 years after his death has been very profound. Lefschetz's influence in Mexican mathematics has been even greater. In this volume, celebrating 50 years of mathematics at CinvestavMéxico, many of the fields of geometry and topology are represented by some of the leaders of their respective fields.
This volume opens with Michael Atiyah reminiscing about his encounters with Lefschetz and México. Topics covered in this volume include symplectic flexibility, Chern–Simons theory and the theory of classical theta functions, toric topology, the Beilinson conjecture for finitedimensional associative algebras, partial monoids and Dold–Thom functors, the weak bprinciple, orbit configuration spaces, equivariant extensions of differential forms for noncompact Lie groups, dynamical systems and categories, and the Nahm pole boundary condition.ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, and algebraic topology.
