Perfectoid Spaces: Lectures from the 2017 Arizona Winter School

Introduced by Peter Scholze in 2011, perfectoid spaces are a bridge between geometry in characteristic 0 and characteristic p, and have been used to solve many important problems, including cases of the weight-monodromy conjecture and the association of Galois representations to torsion classes in cohomology. In recognition of the transformative impact perfectoid spaces have had on the field of arithmetic geometry, Scholze was awarded a Fields Medal in 2018.

Optimal Transportation and Action-Minimizing Measures

In this book we describe recent developments in the theory of optimal transportation, and some of its applications to fluid dynamics. Moreover we explore new variants of the original problem, and we try to figure out some common (and sometimes unexpected) features in this emerging variety of problems.

A Course on Rough Paths: With an Introduction to Regularity Structures

Rough path analysis provides the means for constructing a pathwise solution theory for stochastic differential equations which, in many respects, behaves like the theory of deterministic differential equations and permits a clean break between analytical and probabilistic arguments. Together with the theory of regularity structures, it forms a robust toolbox, allowing the recovery of many classical results without having to rely on specific probabilistic properties such as adaptedness or the martingale property.

On the Stabilization of the Trace Formula

The books are intended primarily for two groups of readers. The first group is interested in the structure of automorphic forms on reductive groups over number fields, and specifically in qualitative information about the multiplicities of automorphic representations. The second group is interested in the problem of classifying l-adic representations of Galois groups of number fields.

Probability and Statistical Physics in Two and More Dimensions

In the past ten to fifteen years, various areas of probability theory related to statistical physics, disordered systems and combinatorics have undergone intensive development. A number of these developments deal with two-dimensional random structures at their critical points, and provide new tools and ways of coping with at least some of the limitations of Conformal Field Theory that had been so successfully developed in the theoretical physics community to understand phase transitions of two-dimensional systems.

An Introduction to Measure Theory

This is a graduate text introducing the fundamentals of measure theory and integration theory, which is the foundation of modern real analysis. The text focuses first on the concrete setting of Lebesgue measure and the Lebesgue integral (which in turn is motivated by the more classical concepts of Jordan measure and the Riemann integral), before moving on to abstract measure and integration theory, including the standard convergence theorems, Fubini's theorem, and the Carathéodory extension theorem.

Nonlinear Dispersive Equations: Local and Global Analysis

Among nonlinear PDEs, dispersive and wave equations form an important class of equations. These include the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, the nonlinear wave equation, the Korteweg de Vries equation, and the wave maps equation. This book is an introduction to the methods and results used in the modern analysis (both locally and globally in time) of the Cauchy problem for such equations.

Higher Order Fourier Analysis

Traditional Fourier analysis, which has been remarkably effective in many contexts, uses linear phase functions to study functions. Some questions, such as problems involving arithmetic progressions, naturally lead to the use of quadratic or higher order phases. Higher order Fourier analysis is a subject that has become very active only recently. Gowers, in groundbreaking work, developed many of the basic concepts of this theory in order to give a new, quantitative proof of Szemerédi's theorem on arithmetic progressions.

Cycles, Transfers, and Motivic Homology Theories

The original goal that ultimately led to this volume was the construction of "motivic cohomology theory," whose existence was conjectured by A. Beilinson and S. Lichtenbaum. This is achieved in the book's fourth paper, using results of the other papers whose additional role is to contribute to our understanding of various properties of algebraic cycles. The material presented provides the foundations for the recent proof of the celebrated "Milnor Conjecture" by Vladimir Voevodsky.

Lecture Notes on Motivic Cohomology

The notion of a motive is an elusive one, like its namesake "the motif" of Cezanne's impressionist method of painting. Its existence was first suggested by Grothendieck in 1964 as the underlying structure behind the myriad cohomology theories in Algebraic Geometry. We now know that there is a triangulated theory of motives, discovered by Vladimir Voevodsky, which suffices for the development of a satisfactory Motivic Cohomology theory. However, the existence of motives themselves remains conjectural. The lecture notes format is designed for the book to be read by an advanced graduate student or an expert in a related field.

Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction

The aim of this book is to explain, carefully but not technically, the differences between advanced, research-level mathematics, and the sort of mathematics we learn at school. The most fundamental differences are philosophical, and readers of this book will emerge with a clearer understanding of paradoxical-sounding concepts such as infinity, curved space, and imaginary numbers.

From Number Theory to Physics

The present book contains fourteen expository contributions on various topics connected to Number Theory, or Arithmetics, and its relationships to Theoreti­cal Physics. The first part is mathematically oriented; it deals mostly with ellip­tic curves, modular forms, zeta functions, Galois theory, Riemann surfaces, and p-adic analysis. The second part reports on matters with more direct physical interest, such as periodic and quasiperiodic lattices, or classical and quantum dynamical systems.

Dynamical Systems

Michael Robert Herman had a profound impact on the theory of dynamical systems over the last 30 years. His seminar at the École Polytechnique had major worldwide influence and was the main vector in the development of the theory of dynamical systems in France. His interests covered most aspects of the subject though closest to his heart were the so-called small divisors problems, in particular those related to the stability of quasiperiodic motions.

The Mathematical Theory of Thermodynamic Limits: Thomas-Fermi Type Models

The thermodynamic limit is a mathematical technique for modeling crystals or other macroscopic objects by considering them as infinite periodic arrays of molecules. The technique allows models in solid state physics to be derived directly from models in quantum chemistry. This book presents new results, many previously unpublished, for a large class of models and provides a survey of the mathematics of thermodynamic limit problems. The authors both work closely with Fields Medal-winner Pierre-Louis Lion, and the book will be a valuable tool for applied mathematicians and mathematical physicists studying nonlinear partial differential equations.

On Euler Equations and Statistical Physics

The general goal is to describe mathematically some coherent structures observed in turbulent flows. The first problem we study concerns 2-dimensional flows: we begin with a system of N points vortices interacting with the natural Coulomb-like force and we consider the associated Gibbs measure. We then show how the measure goes, as N goes to infinity, to a stationary measure which is concentrated on very particular stationary solutions of the two-dimensional Euler equations.

Computational Conformal Geometry

This new volume presents thorough introductions to the theoretical foundations -- as well as to the practical algorithms -- of computational conformal geometry. These have direct applications to engineering and digital geometric processing, including surface parameterization, surface matching, brain mapping, 3-D face recognition and identification, facial expression and animation, dynamic face tracking, mesh-spline conversion, and more.

The Founders of Index Theory

Index Theory is one of the most exciting and consequential accomplishments of twentieth-century mathematics. The Founders of Index Theory contemplates the four great mathematicians who developed index theory—Sir Michael Atiyah, Raoul Bott, Friedrich Hirzebruch, and I.M. Singer—through the eyes of their students, collaborators and colleagues, their friends and family members, and themselves.

From the Great Wall to the Great Collider: China and the Quest to Uncover the Inner Workings of the Universe

The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson was a sensational triumph -- the culmination of a 48-year-long search that put the finishing touches on the so-called "Standard Model" of particle physics. While the celebrations were still underway, researchers in China were making plans to continue the centuries-old quest to identify the fundamental building blocks of nature.

Uniformization, Riemann-Hilbert Correspondence, Calabi-Yau Manifolds & Picard-Fuchs Equations

The uniformization theorem of Riemann surfaces is one of the most beautiful and important theorems in mathematics. Besides giving a clean classification of Riemann surfaces, its proof has motivated many new methods, such as the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence, Picard-Fuchs equations, and higher-dimensional generalizations of the uniformization theorem, which include Calabi-Yau manifolds.

Three-Dimensional Geometry and Topology: Volume 1

This book develops some of the extraordinary richness, beauty, and power of geometry in two and three dimensions, and the strong connection of geometry with topology.

Confoliations

This book presents the first steps of a theory of confoliations designed to link geometry and topology of three-dimensional contact structures with the geometry and topology of codimension-one foliations on three-dimensional manifolds. Developing almost independently, these theories at first glance belonged to two different worlds: The theory of foliations is part of topology and dynamical systems, while contact geometry is the odd-dimensional "brother" of symplectic geometry.

Pattern Theory: The Stochastic Analysis of Real-World Signals

Pattern theory is a distinctive approach to the analysis of all forms of real-world signals. At its core is the design of a large variety of probabilistic models whose samples reproduce the look and feel of the real signals, their patterns, and their variability. Bayesian statistical inference then allows you to apply these models in the analysis of new signals.

Tata Lectures on Theta I

This volume is the first of three in a series surveying the theory of theta functions. Based on lectures given by the author at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bombay, these volumes constitute a systematic exposition of theta functions, beginning with their historical roots as analytic functions in one variable (Volume I), touching on some of the beautiful ways they can be used to describe moduli spaces (Volume II), and culminating in a methodical comparison of theta functions in analysis, algebraic geometry, and representation theory (Volume III).

Complex Analytic Desingularization

The main ideas of the proof of resolution of singularities of complex-analytic spaces presented here were developed by Heisuke Hironaka in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Since then, a number of proofs, all inspired by Hironaka's general approach, have appeared, the validity of some of them extending beyond the complex analytic case.

The most frequently occurring theme is the use of microlocal analysis which is now important also in the study of non-linear differential equations although it originated entirely within the linear theory. Perhaps it is less surprising that microlocal analysis has proved to be useful in the study of mathematical problems of classical quantum mechanics, for it re­ceived a substantial input of ideas from that field.

Linear Representations of Finite Groups

This book consists of three parts, rather different in level and purpose. The first part was originally written for quantum chemists. It describes the correspondence, due to Frobenius, between linear representations and characters. The second part is a course given in 1966 to second-year students of l’Ecole Normale. It completes in a certain sense the first part. The third part is an introduction to Brauer Theory.

Lie Algebras and Lie Groups

The main general theorems on Lie Algebras are covered, roughly the content of Bourbaki's Chapter I. I have added some results on free Lie algebras, which are useful, both for Lie's theory itself (Campbell-Hausdorff formula) and for applications to pro-Jrgroups.

Cohomological Invariants in Galois Cohomology

This volume addresses algebraic invariants that occur in the confluence of several important areas of mathematics, including number theory, algebra, and arithmetic algebraic geometry. The invariants are analogues for Galois cohomology of the characteristic classes of topology, which have been extremely useful tools in both topology and geometry.

Topics in Galois Theory: Research Notes in Mathematics

This book is based on a course given by the author at Harvard University in the fall semester of 1988. The course focused on the inverse problem of Galois Theory: the construction of field extensions having a given finite group as Galois group.

Complex Manifolds

This volume serves as an introduction to the Kodaira-Spencer theory of deformations of complex structures. Based on notes taken by James Morrow from lectures given by Kunihiko Kodaira at Stanford University in 1965-1966, the book gives the original proof of the Kodaira embedding theorem, showing that the restricted class of Kähler manifolds called Hodge manifolds is algebraic.

Introduction to Complex Analysis

This textbook is an introduction to the classical theory of functions of a complex variable. The author's aim is to explain the basic theory in an easy-to-understand and careful way. He emphasizes geometrical considerations and, to avoid topological difficulties associated with complex analysis, begins by deriving Cauchy's integral formula in a topologically simple case.

The Collected Papers of Teiji Takagi

Teiji Takagi one of the leading number theorists of this century, is most renowned as the founder of class field theory. This volume reflects the stages of his development of this theory. Inspired by a genial idea related to analytic number theory, he developed a beautiful general theory of abelian extensions of algebraic number fields which he addressed at the ICM 1920 at Strasbourg.

A Mathematician Grappling with His Century

Laurent Schwartz is one of the most remarkable intellects of the 20th century. His discovery of distributions, one of the most beautiful theories in mathematics, earned him a 1950 Fields Medal. Beyond this formidable achievement, his love for science and for teaching led him to think deeply and lecture broadly to the general public on the significance of science and mathematics to the well-being of the world.

Complex Analysis

A standard source of information of functions of one complex variable, this text has retained its wide popularity in this field by being consistently rigorous without becoming needlessly concerned with advanced or overspecialized material.

Conformal Invariants: Topics in Geometric Function Theory

The book emphasizes the geometric approach as well as classical and semi-classical results which Lars Ahlfors felt every student of complex analysis should know before embarking on independent research. At the time of the book's original appearance, much of this material had never appeared in book form, particularly the discussion of the theory of extremal length.

Riemann Surfaces

The theory of Riemann surfaces has a geometric and an analytic part. The former deals with the axiomatic definition of a Riemann surface, methods of construction, topological equivalence, and conformal mappings of one Riemann surface on another. The analytic part is concerned with the existence and properties of functions that have a special character connected with the conformal structure, for instance: subharmonic, harmonic, and analytic functions.

Advances in the Theory of Riemann Surfaces

The present volume contains all but two of the papers read at the conference, as well as a few papers and short notes submitted afterwards. We hope that it reflects faithfully the present state of research in the fields covered, and that it may provide an access to these fields for future investigations.

Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings

Lars Ahlfors's Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings, based on a course he gave at Harvard University in the spring term of 1964, was first published in 1966 and was soon recognized as the classic it was shortly destined to become. These lectures develop the theory of quasiconformal mappings from scratch, give a self-contained treatment of the Beltrami equation, and cover the basic properties of Teichmuller spaces
