This volume represents the proceedings of the conference on Foliations, Geometry, and Topology, held August 6-10, 2007, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in honor of the 70th birthday of Paul Schweitzer. The papers concentrate on the theory of foliations and related areas such as dynamical systems, group actions on low dimensional manifolds, and geometry of hypersurfaces.

There are survey papers on classification of foliations and their dynamical properties, including codimension one foliations with Bott-Morse singularities. Other papers involve the relationship of foliations with characteristic classes, contact structures, and Eliashberg-Mishachev wrinkled mappings.

Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in foliations, geometry, and topology.
