Tight and Taut Submanifolds
by Thomas E. Cecil, Shiing-shen Chern
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1997
Number of pages: 349
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 in-depth articles by leading experts in the field and an extensive bibliography.

The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.

This is an introduction to some of the analytic aspects of quantum cohomology. The small quantum cohomology algebra, regarded as an example of a Frobenius manifold, is described without going into the technicalities of a rigorous definition.

This volume is an up-to-date panorama of Comparison Geometry, featuring surveys and new research. Surveys present classical and recent results, and often include complete proofs, in some cases involving a new and unified approach.

We discuss the solution theory of geometric wave equations as they arise in Lorentzian geometry: for a normally hyperbolic differential operator the existence and uniqueness properties of Green functions and Green operators is discussed.
