The Surveys in Differential Geometry are supplementations to the magazine of Differential Geometry, that are released through foreign Press. They contain major invited papers combining unique examine and overviews of the most up-tp-date examine in particular components of curiosity to the becoming magazine of Differential Geometry group. The survey volumes function carrying on with references, inspirations for brand spanking new learn, and introductions to the diversity of issues of curiosity to differential geometers. those supplementations are released every year considering 1999.
This quantity arises out of the convention backed by way of the magazine of Differential Geometry and held at Harvard collage to honor the 4 mathematicians who based Index conception. a lot of geometers amassed for this old celebration which integrated quite a few tributes and memories as a way to be released in a separate quantity. The 4 founders of the Index conception - Michael Atiyah, Raoul Bott, Frederich Hirzebruch, and Isadore Singer - are assets of idea, mentors and academics for the opposite audio system and members on the convention. The larger-than-usual measurement of this quantity derives without delay from the large appreciate and admiration for the honorees.
