Projective and Polar Spaces
by Peter J. Cameron
Publisher: Queen Mary College 1991
Number of pages: 147
The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The major themes are the projective and affine spaces, and the polar spaces associated with sesquilinear or quadratic forms on projective spaces. The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.

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.

The authors present the results of their development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems.

A comprehensive textbook on all basic structures from the theory of jets. It begins with an introduction to differential geometry. After reduction each problem to a finite order setting, the remaining discussion is based on properties of jet spaces.

This is arguably one of the deepest and most beautiful results in modern geometry, and it is surely a must know for any geometer / topologist. It has to do with elliptic partial differential operators on a compact manifold.
