Differential Geometry and Complex Analysis: A Volume Dedicated to the Memory of Harry Ernest Rauch by Isaac Chavel, Hershel M. Farkas
English | PDF | 1985 | 228 Pages | ISBN : 3642698301 | 12.7 MB
This volume is dedicated to the memory of Harry Ernest Rauch, who died suddenly on June 18, 1979. In organizing the volume we solicited: (i) articles summarizing Rauch's own work in differential geometry, complex analysis and theta functions (ii) articles which would give the reader an idea of the depth and breadth of Rauch's researches, interests, and influence, in the fields he investigated, and (iii) articles of high scientific quality which would be of general interest. In each of the areas to which Rauch made significant contribution - pinching theorems, teichmiiller theory, and theta functions as they apply to Riemann surfaces - there has been substantial progress.
