Geometric Wave Equations
by Stefan Waldmann
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 279
In these lecture notes 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 including a detailed treatment of the Cauchy problem on a globally hyperbolic manifold both for the smooth and finite order setting.

An exterior differential system is a system of equations on a manifold defined by equating to zero a number of exterior differential forms. This book gives a treatment of exterior differential systems. It includes both the theory and applications.

This is a textbook on differential forms. The primary target audience is sophomore level undergraduates enrolled in a course in vector calculus. Later chapters will be of interest to advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students.

We provide a survey on recent results on noncompact simply connected harmonic manifolds, and we also prove many new results, both for general noncompact harmonic manifolds and for noncompact harmonic manifolds with purely exponential volume growth.

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.
