Progress in Mathematics #0123: Lie Theory and Geometryby J. L. Brylinski
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This volume, dedicated to Bertram Kostant on the occasion of his 65th birthday, is a collection of 22 invited papers by leading mathematicians working in Lie theory, geometry, algebra, and mathematical physics. Kostant's fundamental work in all these areas has provided deep new insights and connections, and has created new fields of research. The papers gathered here present original research articles as well as expository papers, broadly reflecting the range of Kostant's work.
Book News Annotation:This volume, dedicated to Bertram Kostant on the occasion of his 65th birthday, is a collection of 22 invited papers by leading mathematicians working in Lie theory, geometry, algebra, and mathematical physics. The papers gathered include original research articles as well as expository papers broadly reflecting the range of Kostant's work. Some of the papers originated in talks given at a symposium in honor of Kostant at MIT in May 1993. An extended preface gives an overview of Kostant's work to date.
