Prescribing the curvature of a Riemannian manifold

Those notes have been the root for a chain of ten lectures given in January 1984 at Polytechnic Institute of recent York lower than the sponsorship of the convention Board of the Mathematical Sciences and the nationwide technological know-how beginning. The lectures have been geared toward mathematicians who knew both a few differential geometry or partial differential equations, even though others might comprehend the lectures.

Design and Nature V: Comparing Design in Nature with Science and Engineering

Nature has proven a rare means to increase dynamic buildings and structures over many hundreds of thousands of years. What researchers examine from those buildings and structures can frequently be utilized to enhance or strengthen human-made constructions and structures. and there's nonetheless a lot to be realized. aimed toward delivering clean impetus and suggestion for researchers during this box, this booklet involves papers provided on the 5th foreign convention on layout and Nature.
