The 2007 Abel Symposium came about on the college of Oslo in August 2007. The aim of the symposium was once to compile mathematicians whose learn efforts have ended in contemporary advances in algebraic geometry, algebraic K-theory, algebraic topology, and mathematical physics. a standard subject of this symposium was once the advance of recent views and new structures with a specific style. because the lectures on the symposium and the papers of this quantity exhibit, those views and structures have enabled a broadening of vistas, a synergy among once-differentiated matters, and suggestions to mathematical difficulties either outdated and new.

The Nordic summer season college 1985 awarded to younger researchers the mathematical facets of the continuing examine stemming from the learn of box theories in physics and the differential geometry of fibre bundles in arithmetic. the amount comprises papers, usually with unique traces of assault, on twistor equipment for harmonic maps, the differential geometric elements of Yang-Mills conception, complicated differential geometry, metric differential geometry and partial differential equations in differential geometry.

Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis: Israel Seminar (GAFA) 1986–87

This is often the 3rd released quantity of the complaints of the Israel Seminar on Geometric features of useful research. the big majority of the papers during this quantity are unique study papers. there has been final 12 months a powerful emphasis on classical finite-dimensional convexity idea and its reference to Banach area thought.

Lectures on the geometry of quantization

Those notes are in accordance with a path entitled "Symplectic Geometry and Geometric Quantization" taught via Alan Weinstein on the collage of California, Berkeley (fall 1992) and on the Centre Emile Borel (spring 1994). the one prerequisite for the path wanted is an information of the fundamental notions from the idea of differentiable manifolds (differential types, vector fields, transversality, and so on.

These were the results reported on by the author at the Abel conference in Oslo. In this largely expository note, we discuss basic notions of Floer homotopy type, and generalize them to discuss obstructions to the existence of a Floer £ -homology theory, when £ is a generalized cohomology theory. R, defined on an In a “Floer theory” one typically has a functional, A Ï Y infinite dimensional manifold, Y, whose critical points generate a “Floer chain complex”, £ A A .

Let us denote this space by G. This is the classifying space used by Jurˇco and Baas–B¨okstedt–Kro. It should be noted that the assumption that G is a well-pointed 2-group ensures that the nerve of the 2-groupoid G is a “good” simplicial space in the sense of Segal; this “goodness” condition is important in the work of Baas, B¨okstedt and Kro [1]. Baas, B¨okstedt and Kro also consider a third way to construct a classifying space for G. If we take the nerve G of G we get a simplicial group, as described in Sect.
