By Sigurdur Helgason

This publication offers the 1st systematic exposition of geometric research on Riemannian symmetric areas and its dating to the illustration concept of Lie teams. The e-book begins with glossy crucial geometry for double fibrations and treats a number of examples intimately. After discussing the idea of Radon transforms and Fourier transforms on symmetric areas, inversion formulation, and diversity theorems, Helgason examines functions to invariant differential equations on symmetric areas, life theorems, and particular resolution formulation, quite capability conception and wave equations. The canonical multitemporal wave equation on a symmetric area is incorporated. The ebook concludes with a bankruptcy on eigenspace representations--that is, representations on resolution areas of invariant differential equations. identified for his top of the range expositions, Helgason bought the 1988 Steele Prize for his prior books Differential Geometry, Lie teams and Symmetric areas and teams and Geometric research. Containing routines (with recommendations) and references to additional effects, this revised variation will be compatible for complicated graduate classes in glossy fundamental geometry, research on Lie teams, and illustration thought of Lie teams.

**Geometry of Cauchy-Riemann Submanifolds**

This booklet gathers contributions by way of revered specialists at the thought of isometric immersions among Riemannian manifolds, and makes a speciality of the geometry of CR buildings on submanifolds in Hermitian manifolds. CR constructions are a package theoretic recast of the tangential Cauchy–Riemann equations in complicated research regarding numerous advanced variables.
