This is arguably one of the deepest and most beautiful results in modern geometry, and it is surely a must know for any geometer / topologist. It has to do with elliptic partial differential operators on a compact manifold.

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 book provides full details of a complete proof of the Poincare Conjecture following Grigory Perelman's preprints. The book is suitable for all mathematicians from advanced graduate students to specialists in geometry and topology.

This new and elegant area of mathematics has exciting applications, as this text demonstrates by presenting practical examples in geometry processing (surface fairing, parameterization, and remeshing) and simulation (of cloth, shells, rods, fluids).

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.
