Exterior Differential Systems and Euler-Lagrange Partial Differential Equations
by R. Bryant, P. Griffiths, D. Grossman
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press 2008
Number of pages: 219
The authors present the results of their ongoing development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincaré-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems, which provides the language and techniques for the entire study.

This paper introduced undergraduates to the Atiyah-Singer index theorem. It includes a statement of the theorem, an outline of the easy part of the heat equation proof. It includes counting lattice points and knot concordance as applications.

This is an introduction to some of the analytic aspects of quantum cohomology. The small quantum cohomology algebra, regarded as an example of a Frobenius manifold, is described without going into the technicalities of a rigorous definition.
