Geometric analysis [EBook] / Peter Li, University of California, Irvine.
The aim of this graduatelevel text is to equip the reader with the basic tools and techniques needed for research in various areas of geometric analysis. Throughout, the main theme is to present the interaction of partial differential equations and differential geometry. More specifically, emphasis...
