This quantity includes learn and survey articles by means of popular and revered mathematicians on differential geometry and topology which have been amassed and devoted in honor of Lieven Vanhecke, as a tribute to his many fruitful and encouraging contributions to those fields.

The papers, all written with the required introductory and contextual fabric, describe contemporary advancements and examine developments in spectral geometry, the idea of geodesics and curvature, touch and symplectic geometry, advanced geometry, algebraic topology, homogeneous and symmetric areas, and diverse purposes of partial differential equations and differential platforms to geometry. one of many key strengths of those articles is their entice non-specialists, in addition to researchers and differential geometers.
