God is always doing Geometry -- Plato (as quoted by Plutarch)
This book collects accessible lectures on four geometrically flavored
fields of mathematics that have experienced great development in
recent years: hyperbolic geometry (taught by James Cannon), dynamics
in several complex variables (taught by John Smillie), convex geometry
(taught by Keith Ball and others), and volume estimation (taught by
Béla Bollobás). Each lecture course start with elementary
concepts, proceeds through highlights of the field, and concludes with
a taste of advanced material. The style and presentation are
crystal-clear, and most lectures are richly illustrated.
Bibliographies and indexes are provided.
