 This volume covers material presented by invited speakers at the AMS special session on Riemannian and Lorentzian geometries held at the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore. Topics covered include classification of curvaturerelated operators, curvaturehomogeneous Einstein 4manifolds, linear stability/instability singularity and hyperbolic operators of spacetimes, spectral geometry of holomorphic manifolds, cut loci of nilpotent Lie groups, conformal geometry of almost Hermitian manifolds, and also submanifolds of complex and contact spaces. This volume can serve as a good reference source and provide indications for further research. It is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in differential geometry.
