Progress in mathematics is based on a thorough understanding of the mathematical objects under consideration, and yet many textbooks and monographs proceed to discuss general statements and assume that the reader can and will provide the mathematical infrastructure of examples and counterexamples. This book makes a deliberate effort to correct this situation: it is a collection of examples. The following table of contents describes its breadth and reveals the underlying motivation--differential geometry--in its many facets: Riemannian, symplectic, K*adahler, hyperK*adahler, as well as complex and quaternionic.


Libraries, research mathematicians, undergraduate and graduate students, and mathematical physicists.

Quotes and reviews

@qu:The book will be a welcome supplement to standard texts on Lie theory....It provides concrete material to those who study and contribute to the interesting developments in spin geometry and Twsitor theory with applications to general relativity.
