By Simon Donaldson,Yakov Eliashberg,Misha Gromov

Different Faces of Geometry - edited by way of the realm well known geometers S. Donaldson, Ya. Eliashberg, and M. Gromov - provides the present nation, new effects, unique rules and open questions from the subsequent very important issues in sleek geometry:

Amoebas and Tropical Geometry
Convex Geometry and Asymptotic Geometric Analysis
Differential Topology of 4-Manifolds
3-Dimensional touch Geometry
Floer Homology and Low-Dimensional Topology
Kahler Geometry
Lagrangian and detailed Lagrangian Submanifolds
Refined Seiberg-Witten Invariants.

These it sounds as if varied issues have a typical function in that they're all components of intriguing present job. The Editors have attracted a powerful array of best experts to writer chapters for this quantity: G. Mikhalkin (USA-Canada-Russia), V.D. Milman (Israel) and A.A. Giannopoulos (Greece), C. LeBrun (USA), Ko Honda (USA), P. Ozsvath (USA) and Z. Szabo (USA), C. Simpson (France), D. Joyce (UK) and P. Seidel (USA), and S. Bauer (Germany).

"One can distinguish a number of issues operating during the varied contributions. there's a few emphasis on invariants outlined by means of elliptic equations and their purposes in low-dimensional topology, symplectic and phone geometry (Bauer, Seidel, Ozsvath and Szabo). those rules input, extra tangentially, within the articles of Joyce, Honda and LeBrun. the following and in other places, in addition to explaining the quick advances which were made, the articles show a superb feel of the monstrous components mendacity past our present knowing.
Simpson's article emphasizes the necessity for attention-grabbing new structures (in that case of Kahler and algebraic manifolds), some degree that is additionally made through Bauer within the context of 4-manifolds and the "11/8 conjecture."
LeBrun's article provides one other standpoint on 4-manifold concept, through Riemannian geometry, and the hard open questions regarding the geometry of even "well-known" 4-manifolds.
There also are notable contrasts among the articles. The authors have taken diversified ways: for instance, the considerate essay of Simpson, the hot examine result of LeBrun and the thorough expositions with homework difficulties of Honda.
One may also examine the diversities within the type of arithmetic. within the articles of Honda, Giannopoulos and Milman, and Mikhalkin, the "geometry" is found in a truly brilliant and tangible approach; combining respectively with topology, research and algebra. The papers of Bauer and Seidel, nevertheless, makes the purpose that algebraic and algebro-topological abstraction (triangulated different types, spectra) can play a big position in very unforeseen methods in concrete geometric problems." - From the Preface by way of the Editors
