The conference also reflected Professor Chern's personality. It was a serious occasion, active yet relaxed, mixed with gentleness and good : Paperback. Shiing-Shen Chern has 39 books on Goodreads with 72 ratings.

Shiing-Shen Chern’s most popular book is Lectures on Differential Geometry. S. Chern was indeed one of the central figures of twentieth century mathematics and is counted as nothing less than the main architect of modern differential geometry in the wake of Elie Cartan.

This collection of of his papers is an appropriate tribute to him and his work. Chapter 1 Introduction Some history In the words of S.S. Chern, ”the fundamental objects of study in differential geome-try are manifolds.” 1 Roughly, an n-dimensional manifold is a mathematical object that “locally” looks like theory of manifolds has a long and complicatedFile Size: 2MB.

The output of this Symposium was published in a series of three separate volumes, comprising approximately a third of Professor Chern’s total publications up to Later, a fourth volume was published, focusing on papers written during the Eighties. This first volume comprises selected papers written between and Brand: Springer-Verlag New York.
