Logarithmic geometry deals with two problems in algebraic geometry: compactification and degeneration. Contents: The geometry of monoids; Log structures and charts; Morphisms of log schemes; Differentials and smoothness; De Rham and Betti cohomology.

The main goal of these notes is to give a proof of the basic facts of harmonic analysis on compact symmetric spaces and then to apply these to concrete problems involving things such as the Radon and related transforms on these spaces.

These lecture notes are based on some lectures given in 1980. The object of the lectures was to construct a projective moduli space for stable curves of genus greater than or equal two using Mumford's geometric invariant theory.

These notes are based on a series of lectures given in 1973. The lectures are centered about the work of M. Scahlessinger and R. Elkik on infinitesimal deformations. Contents: Formal Theory and Computations; Elkik's Theorems on Algebraization.
