Collected Papers of Bertram Kostant: Volume V 2000-2007 Cover Image


For more than five decades Bertram Kostant has been one of the major architects of modern Lie theory. Virtually all his papers are pioneering with deep consequences, many giving rise to whole new fields of activities. His interests span a tremendous range of Lie theory, from differential geometry to representation theory, abstract algebra, and mathematical physics. It is striking to note that Lie theory (and symmetry in general) now occupies an ever increasing larger role in mathematics than it did in the fifties. Now in the sixth decade of his career, he continues to produce results of astonishing beauty and significance for which he is invited to lecture all over the world.

This is the fifth volume (1995-2005) of a five-volume set of Bertram Kostant's collected papers. A distinguished feature of this fifth volume is Kostant's commentaries and summaries of his papers in his own words.
