This ebook is an outgrowth of the actions of the heart for Geometry and Mathematical Physics (CGMP) at Penn kingdom from 1996 to 1998. the guts used to be created within the arithmetic division at Penn nation within the fall of 1996 for the aim of marketing and helping the actions of researchers and scholars in and round geometry and physics on the college. The CGMP brings many viewers to Penn kingdom and has ties with different learn teams; it organizes weekly seminars in addition to annual workshops The publication includes 17 contributed articles on present study themes in a number of fields: symplectic geometry, quantization, quantum teams, algebraic geometry, algebraic teams and invariant idea, and personality istic sessions. lots of the 20 authors have talked at Penn nation approximately their study. Their articles current new effects or speak about attention-grabbing perspec tives on fresh paintings. the entire articles were refereed within the commonplace style of good medical journals. Symplectic geometry, quantization and quantum teams is one major subject of the e-book. a number of authors research deformation quantization. As tashkevich generalizes Karabegov's deformation quantization of Kahler manifolds to symplectic manifolds admitting transverse polarizations, and experiences the instant map on the subject of semisimple coadjoint orbits. Bieliavsky constructs an particular star-product on holonomy reducible sym metric coadjoint orbits of an easy Lie staff, and he exhibits find out how to con struct a star-representation which has fascinating holomorphic properties.

**Discontinuous Groups of Isometries in the Hyperbolic Plane**

This booklet through Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) and Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) has had

a lengthy and intricate background. In 1938-39, Nielsen gave a chain of lectures on

discontinuous teams of motions within the non-euclidean aircraft, and this led him - in the course of

World struggle II - to put in writing the 1st chapters of the publication (in German). while Fenchel,

who needed to break out from Denmark to Sweden due to the German profession,

returned in 1945, Nielsen initiated a collaboration with him on what grew to become identified

as the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript. at the moment they have been either on the Technical

University in Copenhagen. the 1st draft of the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript (now

in English) was once comprehensive in 1948 and it used to be deliberate to be released within the Princeton

Mathematical sequence. even if, end result of the fast improvement of the topic, they felt

that great adjustments needed to be made ahead of ebook.

When Nielsen moved to Copenhagen collage in 1951 (where he stayed until eventually

1955), he was once a lot concerned with the overseas association UNESCO, and the

further writing of the manuscript used to be left to Fenchel. The information of Fenchel now

deposited and catalogued on the division of arithmetic at Copenhagen Univer-

sity include unique manuscripts: a partial manuscript (manuscript zero) in Ger-

man containing Chapters I-II (

I -15), and an entire manuscript (manuscript I) in

English containing Chapters I-V (

1-27). The data additionally include a part of a corre-

spondence (first in German yet later in Danish) among Nielsen and Fenchel, the place

Nielsen makes distinct reviews to Fenchel's writings of Chapters III-V. Fenchel,

who succeeded N. E. Nf/Jrlund at Copenhagen college in 1956 (and stayed there

until 1974), used to be greatly concerned with a radical revision of the curriculum in al-

gebra and geometry, and centred his examine within the conception of convexity, heading

the foreign Colloquium on Convexity in Copenhagen 1965. for nearly two decades

he additionally positioned a lot attempt into his task as editor of the newly begun magazine Mathematica

Scandinavica. a lot to his dissatisfaction, this task left him little time to complete the

Fenchel-Nielsen undertaking the way in which he desired to.

After his retirement from the college, Fenchel - assisted by way of Christian Sieben-

eicher from Bielefeld and Mrs. Obershelp who typed the manuscript - stumbled on time to

finish the ebook straightforward Geometry in Hyperbolic area, which was once released by means of

Walter de Gruyter in 1989 almost immediately after his loss of life. concurrently, and with an identical

collaborators, he supervised a typewritten model of the manuscript (manuscript 2) on

discontinuous teams, elimination a few of the imprecise issues that have been within the unique

manuscript. Fenchel informed me that he meditated removal components of the introductory

Chapter I within the manuscript, considering this could be coated through the booklet pointed out above;

but to make the Fenchel-Nielsen ebook self-contained he eventually selected to not do

so. He did choose to miss

27, entitled Thefundamental crew.

As editor, i began in 1990, with the consent of the felony heirs of Fenchel and

Nielsen, to supply a TEX-version from the newly typewritten model (manuscript 2).

I am thankful to Dita Andersen and Lise Fuldby-Olsen in my division for hav-

ing performed a superb task of typing this manuscript in AMS- TEX. i've got additionally had

much aid from my colleague J0rn B0rling Olsson (himself a scholar of Kate Fenchel

at Aarhus collage) with the facts interpreting of the TEX-manuscript (manuscript three)

against manuscript 2 in addition to with a basic dialogue of the difference to the fashion

of TEX. In such a lot respects we made up our minds to persist with Fenchel's intentions. even if, turning

the typewritten version of the manuscript into TEX helped us to make sure that the notation,

and the spelling of convinced key-words, will be uniform in the course of the publication. additionally,

we have indicated the start and finish of an evidence within the ordinary type of TEX.

With this TEX -manuscript I approached Walter de Gruyter in Berlin in 1992, and

to my nice aid and pride they agreed to submit the manuscript of their sequence

Studies in arithmetic. i'm such a lot thankful for this optimistic and quickly response. One

particular challenge with the booklet grew to become out to be the replica of the various

figures that are a vital part of the presentation. Christian Siebeneicher had at

first agreed to convey those in ultimate digital shape, yet by means of 1997 it grew to become transparent that he

would now not manage to locate the time to take action. notwithstanding, the writer provided an answer

whereby I should still bring exact drawings of the figures (Fenchel didn't depart such

for Chapters IV and V), after which they might manage the construction of the figures in

electronic shape. i'm very thankful to Marcin Adamski, Warsaw, Poland, for his wonderful

collaboration about the genuine construction of the figures.

My colleague Bent Fuglede, who has personaHy identified either authors, has kindly

written a quick biography of the 2 of them and their mathematical achievements,

and which additionally areas the Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript in its right point of view. In

this connection i need to thank The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and

Letters for permitting us to incorporate during this ebook reproductions of pictures of the 2

authors that are within the ownership of the Academy.

Since the manuscript makes use of a few specified symbols, a listing of notation with brief

explanations and connection with the particular definition within the e-book has been incorporated. additionally,

a accomplished index has been additional. In either instances, all references are to sections,

not pages.

We thought of including a whole checklist of references, yet determined opposed to it because of

the overwhelming variety of examine papers during this region. as a substitute, a far shorter

list of monographs and different accomplished bills proper to the topic has been

collected.

My ultimate and so much honest thank you visit Dr. Manfred Karbe from Walter de Gruyter

for his commitment and perseverance in bringing this book into life.

Let Vx be the sheaf of algebraic differential operators on X. Then V(X) = r(X, V x ) is the algebra of (global) differential operators on X. Let Vd(X) C V(X) be the subspace of differential operators of order at most d. , [B-K2, Appendix] for some of the basic definitions and facts on differential operators. Let R(X) denote the algebra of regular functions on X. For any commutative complex algebra A, let ::D(A) be the algebra of differential operators of A. We have a natural algebra homomorphism V(X) -+ ::D(R(X)), and this is an isomorphism if X is quasi-affine.

Let Y be a K-orbit inside p+. Then V(Y) has been studied for various cases of this sort in [L-Sm], [L-Sm-Stj, [L-Stj where the functions and vector fields on Y do not generate V(Y). They construct an extension of the natural infinitesimal action t ~ meet Y to a Lie algebra homomorphism 7r : g ~ V(Y), where p+ acts by multiplication operators and p- acts by commuting order 2 differential operators on Y which are Euler homogeneous of degree -l. In particular, in [1-Sm-Stj, Levasseur, Smith and Stafford analyzed cases where Y = 0min n p+ and 0min is the minimal nilpotent orbit of g.

We prove the existence in the next section by case-by-case analysis for 9 = s[(N, q and 9 = so(N, q. 3. 3 implies that the G-subrepresentation of V( 0) generated by Do is irreducible and carries the adjoint representation. In fact, we are getting an equivariant quantization in the following sense. 4. , Dx has order 4 and the principal symbol of Dx is r x .
