Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry: Report on an ICMI-ICIAM-Study

This ebook is the “Study booklet” of ICMI-Study no. 20, which used to be run in cooperation with the overseas Congress on and utilized arithmetic (ICIAM). The editors have been the co-chairs of the examine (Damlamian, Straesser) and the organiser of the learn convention (Rodrigues). The textual content incorporates a complete document at the findings of the examine convention, unique plenary displays of the learn convention, reviews at the operating teams and chosen papers from in all places international.

Analytic Properties of Automorphic L-Functions

Analytic homes of Automorphic L-Functions is a three-chapter textual content that covers massive study works at the automorphic L-functions hooked up by means of Langlands to reductive algebraic teams. bankruptcy I makes a speciality of the research of Jacquet-Langlands equipment and the Einstein sequence and Langlands’ so-called “Euler products”.

D. Chapter 2 SYMPLECTIC GEOMETRY In this chapter we begin with a short introduction to symplectic geometry: That is, Poisson brackets, the Darboux theorem, Hamiltonian vector fields. We then go on in Section 5 to the situation when the symplectic structure gives an integral cohomology class. We develop several results of Kostant relating the automorphisms of the symplectic structure and the automorphisms of the corresponding line bundle with connection. We then introduce (following Kostant) the notion of pre-quantization.
