Résumé :
En juillet 1992, une desk Ronde de Géométrie Différentielle s'est tenue au CIRM de Luminy en l'honneur de Marcel Berger. Les conférences qui sont reproduites dans ces Actes recouvrent los angeles plupart des sujets abordés par Marcel Berger en Géométrie Différentielle et plus précisément : l'holonomie (Bryant), los angeles courbure [courbure sectionnelle confident (Grove), courbure sectionnelle négative (Abresch et Schroeder, Ballmann et Ledrappier), courbure de Ricci négative (Lohkamp), courbure scalaire (Delanoë, Hebey et Vaugon), courbure totale (Shioya)], le spectre du laplacien (Anné, Colin de Verdière, Matheus, Pesce), les inégalités isopérimétriques et les systoles (Calabi, Carron, Gromov), ainsi que quelques sujets annexes [espaces d'Alexandrov (Shiohama et Tanaka, Yamaguchi), elastica (Koiso), géométrie sous-riemannienne (Valère et Pelletier)]. Les auteurs sont pour l. a. plupart des géomètres confirmés, dont plusieurs ont travaillé avec Marcel Berger, mais aussi quelques jeunes. Plusieurs articles (Bryant, Colin, Grove...) contiennent une présentation synthétique des résultats récents dans le domaine concerné, pour mieux les rendre available à un public de non-spécialistes.

Abstract:
Proceedings of the around desk in Differential Geometry in honour of Marcel Berger
July 1992, a around desk in Differential Geometry used to be prepared on the CIRM in Luminy (France) in honour of Marcel Berger. In those complaints, contributions hide many of the fields studied by means of Marcel Berger in Differential Geometry, specifically : holonomy (Bryant), curvature [positive sectional curvature (Grove), destructive sectional curvature (Abresch and Schroeder, Ballmann and Ledrappier), unfavourable Ricci curvature (Lohkamp), scalar curvature (Delanoë, Hebey and Vaugon), overall curvature (Shioya)], spectrum of the Laplacian (Anné, Colin de Verdière, Matheus, Pesce), isoperimetric and isosystolic inequalities (Calabi, Carron, Gromov), including a few similar matters [Alexandrov areas (Shiohama and Tanaka, Yamaguchi), elastica (Koiso), subriemannian geometry (Valère and Pelletier)]. Authors are normally geometers who labored with Marcel Berger at a while, and likewise a few more youthful ones. a few papers (Bryant, Colin, Grove...) contain a quick overview of contemporary leads to their specific fields, with the non-experts in brain.

2. at the contributions

Among the above pointed out meetings, 5 usually are not reproduced in those notes,
namely these via Christopher CROKE, Detlef GROMOLL, Jerry KAZDAN, Ren´e
MICHEL and Gilles ROBERT.

Some of them were released somewhere else, specifically :

CROKE, KLEINER :
Conjugacy and stress for manifolds with a parallel vector field
J. Differential Geom. 39 (1994), 659-680.
LE COUTURIER, ROBERT :
Lp pinching and the geometry of compact Riemannian manifolds
Comment. Math. Helvetici sixty nine (1994), 249-271.
On the opposite hand, Professor SHIOHAMA, who used to be invited to provide a conversation, had
not been in a position to come to the desk Ronde. He sought after however to offer a
contribution to Marcel Berger. it's been extra to this quantity.

Algebra and tiling: homomorphisms in the service of geometry

Usually questions about tiling house or a polygon bring about different questions. for example, tiling by means of cubes increases questions about finite abelian teams. Tiling by way of triangles of equivalent parts quickly includes Sperner's lemma from topology and valuations from algebra. the 1st six chapters of Algebra and Tiling shape a self-contained remedy of those issues, starting with Minkowski's conjecture approximately lattice tiling of Euclidean house via unit cubes, and concluding with Laczkowicz's fresh paintings on tiling through comparable triangles.

Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling (Mathematics and Visualization)

This e-book spans the gap among algebraic descriptions of geometric items and the rendering of electronic geometric shapes in line with algebraic types. those contrasting issues of view motivate a radical research of the most important demanding situations and the way they're met. The articles concentrate on very important sessions of difficulties: implicitization, class, and intersection.

Iii) Note that p ∈ SI is contained in some domain UI with I ⊂ I ⊂ J. 5) it is clear that πI−1 {p} is a totally geodesic product torus in WIU × (R/2πZ) #I equipped with the metric πI∗ g0 + gI . If η is sufficiently small, then the function x → x + η 2 h(x), x ≥ 0, takes its absolute minimum precisely at x = 0. Hence, for these values of η all closed geodesics of the torus are absolutely minimizing elements in their homotopy classes in WIU × (R/2πZ) metric πI∗ g0 + gI #I . In order to pass from the partial to πI∗ (g), we add a positive semidefinite term which vanishes on the torus.

Hn maps each subspace Hn−2 , i ∈ I, into i , j ∈ J \ I. Hence, itself, and it permutes the other subspaces Hn−2 j ∗ i (gJ\I ) = gJ\I , or equivalently d i GJ\I = GJ\I d i . Since BJ\I is a linear combination of covariant derivatives of gJ\I , we get d i BJ\I = BJ\I d i . , d i . Because of these two identities it is sufficient to observe that at any point p ∈ Hn−2 i the differential d i |p acts as a rotation of order mi = ord i on the 2–dimensional subspace im Pi |p ⊂ Tp Hni , whereas it acts as the identity on its orthogonal complement ker Pi |p ⊂ Tp Hni .
