Exterior Differential Systems and Euler-Lagrange Partial Differential Equations
by R. Bryant, P. Griffiths, D. Grossman
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press 2008
Number of pages: 219
The authors present the results of their ongoing development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincaré-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems, which provides the language and techniques for the entire study.

This is the book on a newly emerging field of discrete differential geometry. It surveys the fascinating connections between discrete models in differential geometry and complex analysis, integrable systems and applications in computer graphics.

Gauge theory usually investigates the space of principal connections on a principal fiber bundle (P,p,M,G) and its orbit space under the action of the gauge group (called the moduli space), which is the group of all principal bundle automorphisms...

Tight and taut submanifolds form an important class of manifolds with special curvature properties, one that has been studied intensively by differential geometers since the 1950's. This book contains six articles by leading experts in the field.
