Book Description
The three main themes of this book, probability theory, differential geometry, and the theory of integrable systems, reflect the broad range of mathematical interests of Henry McKean, to whom it is dedicated. Written by experts in probability, geometry, integrable systems, turbulence, and percolation, the seventeen papers included here demonstrate a wide variety of techniques that have been developed to solve various mathematical problems in these areas. The topics are often combined in an unusual and interesting fashion to give solutions outside of the standard methods. The papers contain some exciting results and offer a guide to the contemporary literature on these subjects.
About the Authors Mark Pinsky is Professor of Mathematics at Northwestern University, where he has been since 1968, following a twoyear postdoctoral position at Stanford. He completed his PhD at MIT in 1966, under the direction of Henry McKean. His published work includes 125 research papers and 10 books, including several conference proceedings and textbooks.
 Bjorn Birnir is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB). He served as the UCSB coordinator for nonlinear science from 19851990. He is currently the director of the Center for Complex and Nonlinear Science at UC Santa Barbara.
