From Probability to Geometry (I): Volume in Honor of the 60th Birthday of Jean-Michel Bismut - Xianzhe Dai, Remi Leandre, Xiaonan Ma and Weiping Zhang

This is the second of two volumes that contain original research articles submitted by colleagues and friends to celebrate the 60th birthday of Jean-Michel Bismut.

These articles cover a wide range of subjects in probability theory, global analysis, and arithmetic geometry to which Jean-Michel Bismut has made fundamental contributions.

A publication of the Société Mathématique de France, Marseilles (SMF), distributed by the AMS in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Orders from other countries should be sent to the SMF. Members of the SMF receive a 30% discount from list.
