From the book's preface:
Since writing the preface of the 1st variation of this paintings, the gloomy plight there defined of starting collegiate geometry has brightened significantly. The pendulum turns out certainly to be swinging again and a goodly quantity of fine textual fabric is showing.

Strasbourg Master Class on Geometry

This booklet comprises conscientiously revised and improved types of 8 classes that have been awarded on the college of Strasbourg, in the course of geometry grasp periods, in 2008 and 2009. the purpose of the grasp sessions used to be to offer to fifth-year scholars and PhD scholars in arithmetic the chance to benefit new issues that lead on to the present examine in geometry and topology.

Geometry and Dynamics of Groups and Spaces: In Memory of Alexander Reznikov

Alexander Reznikov (1960-2003) used to be an excellent and hugely unique mathematician. This booklet offers 18 articles by way of well-liked mathematicians and is devoted to his reminiscence. moreover it includes an influential, to date unpublished manuscript through Reznikov of publication size. The study articles extensively mirror the variety of Reznikov's personal pursuits in geometry, crew and quantity idea, useful research, dynamical structures and topology.

On the Geometry of Some Special Projective Varieties

Supplying an advent to either classical and smooth suggestions in projective algebraic geometry, this monograph treats the geometrical homes of types embedded in projective areas, their secant and tangent strains, the habit of tangent linear areas, the algebro-geometric and topological obstructions to their embedding into smaller projective areas, and the class of extremal situations.

Both real and imaginary parts of the surface impedance can be determined in experiments from the change in amplitude and phase shift of an electromagnetic wave reflected from the surface of the metal. To proceed with the calculation of the surface impedance we have to make assumptions about the character of the reflection of electrons from the metal boundary. It was shown in [39] that in the extreme anomalous limit electrons are reflected from the surface of the metal essentially specularly. This result has a simple physical interpretation.
