This e-book supplies an updated account of development on Pansu's celebrated challenge at the sub-Riemannian isoperimetric profile of the Heisenberg workforce. It additionally serves as an advent to the final box of sub-Riemannian geometric research. It develops the tools and instruments of sub-Riemannian differential geometry, nonsmooth research, and geometric degree thought appropriate for assaults on Pansu's problem.

Structure and Geometry of Lie Groups (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

This self-contained text is a superb introduction to Lie teams and their activities on manifolds. The authors commence with an elementary discussion of matrix teams, through chapters dedicated to the fundamental constitution and illustration idea of finite dimensinal Lie algebras. They then flip to international matters, demonstrating the most important factor of the interaction among differential geometry and Lie idea.
