Special Metrics and Group Actions in Geometry, Hardback Book


The volume is a follow-up to the INdAM meeting "Special metrics and quaternionic geometry" held in Rome in November 2015.

It offers a panoramic view of a selection of cutting-edge topics in differential geometry, including 4-manifolds, quaternionic and octonionic geometry, twistor spaces, harmonic maps, spinors, complex and conformal geometry, homogeneous spaces and nilmanifolds, special geometries in dimensions 5-8, gauge theory, symplectic and toric manifolds, exceptional holonomy and integrable systems.

The workshop was held in honor of Simon Salamon, a leading international scholar at the forefront of academic research who has made significant contributions to all these subjects.

The articles published here represent a compelling testimony to Salamon's profound and longstanding impact on the mathematical community.

Target readership includes graduate students and researchers working in Riemannian and complex geometry, Lie theory and mathematical physics.
