It is a monograph on convexity houses of second mappings in symplectic geometry. the elemental bring about this topic is the Kirwan convexity theorem, which describes a twin of a second map by way of linear inequalities. This theorem bears an in depth courting to difficult outdated puzzles from linear algebra, equivalent to the Horn challenge on sums of Hermitian matrices, on which massive growth has been made in recent times following a leap forward through Klyachko. The ebook offers an easy neighborhood version for the instant polytope, legitimate within the ""generic"" case, and an undemanding Morse-theoretic argument deriving the Klyachko inequalities and a few in their generalizations. It stories a number of infinite-dimensional manifestations of second convexity, akin to the Kostant style theorems for orbits of a loop crew (due to Atiyah and Pressley) or a symplectomorphism team (due to Bloch, Flaschka and Ratiu). ultimately, it supplies an account of a brand new convexity theorem for second map photographs of orbits of a Borel subgroup of a fancy reductive team performing on a Kahler manifold, in response to potential-theoretic tools in numerous advanced variables. This quantity is usually recommended for self reliant research and is appropriate for graduate scholars and researchers drawn to symplectic geometry, algebraic geometry, and geometric combinatorics.

**Gradient flows in metric spaces and in the space of probability measures**

This publication is dedicated to a thought of gradient flows in areas which aren't inevitably endowed with a common linear or differentiable constitution. It involves components, the 1st one bearing on gradient flows in metric areas and the second dedicated to gradient flows within the house of chance measures on a separable Hilbert area, endowed with the Kantorovich-Rubinstein-Wasserstein distance.

**Geometry from Dynamics, Classical and Quantum**

This publication describes, through the use of ordinary ideas, how a few geometrical constructions ordinary at the present time in lots of components of physics, like symplectic, Poisson, Lagrangian, Hermitian, and so on. , emerge from dynamics. it truly is assumed that what might be accessed in real studies while learning a given procedure is simply its dynamical habit that's defined by utilizing a relatives of variables ("observables" of the system).

Diffeology is the 1st textbook at the topic. it truly is aimed to graduate scholars and researchers who paintings in differential geometry or in mathematical physics

**Degenerate Complex Monge–Ampère Equations**

Advanced Monge–Ampère equations were the most strong instruments in Kähler geometry due to the fact that Aubin and Yau’s classical works, culminating in Yau’s strategy to the Calabi conjecture. A outstanding program is the development of Kähler-Einstein metrics on a few compact Kähler manifolds. lately degenerate advanced Monge–Ampère equations were intensively studied, requiring extra complicated instruments.

Before we proceed, we mention that if a separable C ∗ -algebra has a ﬁnite dual than it is postliminal [9]. From Sect. 4 we know that for any such algebra A, irreducible representations are completely characterized by their kernels so that the structure space A is homeomorphic with the space P rimA of primitive ideals. As we shall see momentarily, the Jacobson topology on P rimA is equivalent to the partial order deﬁned by the inclusion of ideals. This fact in a sense ‘closes the circle’ making any poset, when thought of as the P rimA space of a noncommutative algebra, a truly noncommutative space or, rather, a noncommutative lattice.

9), the closure V (x) = {x}, of the one point set {x} is given by V (x) =: {y ∈ P | x 2 y} , ∀ x ∈ P . 14) Another equivalent deﬁnition can be given by saying that x y if and only if the constant sequence (x, x, x, · · ·) converges to y. It is worth noticing that in a T0 -space the limit of a sequence need not be unique so that the constant sequence (x, x, x, · · ·) may converge to more than one point. 2 Order and Topology A subset W ⊂ P will be closed if and only if x ∈ W and x Indeed, the closure of W is given by V (x) , V (W ) = 25 y ⇒ y ∈ W.
