An Introduction to the Heisenberg Group and the Sub-riemannian Isoperimetric Problem Hardback
Part of the Progress in Mathematics series
This book gives an up-to-date account of progress on Pansu's celebrated problem on the sub-Riemannian isoperimetric profile of the Heisenberg group.
It also serves as an introduction to the general field of sub-Riemannian geometric analysis.
It develops the methods and tools of sub-Riemannian differential geometry, nonsmooth analysis, and geometric measure theory suitable for attacks on Pansu's problem.
