this CIME course was to present to young students and researchers the impressive recent achievements in differential geometry and topology obtained by means of techniques based on the Ricci flow We then invited some of the leading researchers in the field of geometric analysis and low-dimensional geometry/topology to introduce some of the central ideas in their work Here is the list of speakers together with the titles of their lectures: • Gérard Besson (Grenoble) – The differentiable sphere theorem (after S Brendle and R Schoen) • Michel Boileau (Toulouse) – Thick/thin decomposition of three-manifolds and the geometrization conjecture • Carlo Sinestrari (Roma “Tor Vergata”) – Singularities of three-dimensional Ricci flows • Gang Tian (Princeton) – Kähler–Ricci flow and geometric applications The summer school had around 50 international attendees (mostly PhD students and postdocs) Even though they were sometimes technically heavy, the lectures were followed by all the students with interest The participants were very satisfied by the high quality of the courses The not-so-intense scheduling of the lectures gave the students many opportunities to interact with the speakers, who were always very friendly and available for discussion It should be mentioned that the wonderful location and the careful CIME organization were also greatly appreciated We think that the fast-growing field of geometric flows and more generally of geometric analysis, which has always received great attention in the international community, but which is still relatively “young” in Italy, will benefit from its diffusion by this CIME course We briefly describe the contents of the lectures collected in this volume Gérard Besson presented the impact of the Ricci flow technique on the theory of positively curved manifolds, the central result being the differentiable 1/4-pinched sphere theorem, proved by Brendle and Schoen It says that a complete, simply v vi Preface connected Riemannian manifold whose sectional curvature varies in 1=4; 1 is diffeomorphic to the standard sphere The problem was first proposed by H Hopf, and then in 1951, H.E Rauch showed that a complete Riemannian manifold whose sectional curvature is positive and varies between two numbers whose ratio is close to has a universal cover homeomorphic to a sphere In the 1960s, M Berger and W Klingenberg obtained the optimal result: a simply connected Riemannian manifold which is strictly 1=4pinched is homeomorphic to the sphere The analogous diffeomorphic conclusion remained open until S Brendle and R Schoen proved the following: Theorem (S Brendle and R Schoen, 2008) Let M be a pointwise strictly 1=4pinched Riemannian manifold of positive sectional curvature Then M carries a metric of constant sectional curvature Hence, it is diffeomorphic to the quotient of a sphere by a finite subgroup of O.n/ The proof relies on the use of the Ricci flow introduced by R Hamilton and culminating in the work of G Perelman The idea is to construct a deformation of the Riemannian metric, evolving it by means of the Ricci flow toward a constant curvature metric We recall that this was the method that R Hamilton used in his seminal paper, proving the following theorem: Theorem (R Hamilton, 1982) Let M be a closed 3-dimensional Riemannian manifold which carries a metric of positive Ricci curvature; then it also carries a metric of positive constant curvature The lectures also focus on the extension to higher dimensions of the following result, due to C Böhm and B Wilking Recall that a curvature operator is 2-positive if the sum of its two smallest eigenvalues is positive Theorem (C Böhm and B Wilking, 2008) Let M be a closed Riemannian manifold whose curvature operator is 2-positive; then M carries a constant curvature metric In the lectures, the connection between this method and the algebraic properties of the Riemann curvature operator is stressed, the main focus being the identification of those properties of the curvature operator which are preserved under the Ricci flow In his lectures, Michel Boileau gave an introduction to the geometrization of 3-manifolds Sections 2.1 and 2.2 cover Thurston’s classification of the eight 3dimensional geometries and the characterization of geometric (and Seifert) closed 3-manifolds in terms of basic topological properties This follows by combining Thurston’s hyperbolization theorems (in particular the characterization of hyperbolic 3-manifolds that are fibered over S1 ), Perelman’s general geometrization theorem, and Agol’s recent (2013) proof of a deep conjecture of Thurston that closed hyperbolic 3-manifolds are “virtually fibered.” Section 2.3 discusses the following: (1) A central result of classical 3dimensional geometric topology, that is, the canonical decomposition of a Preface vii 3-manifold by splitting it along spheres and tori (2) Thurston’s geometrization conjecture This roughly says that every piece of a canonical decomposition is geometric together with a prediction on the geometry carried by the piece in terms of basic topological properties It includes as a particular case the celebrated Poincaré conjecture (3) Thurston’s fundamental hyperbolization theorem for Haken manifolds Perelman’s proof of the general geometrization theorem deals with all of these topics and also allows us to recover, as a by-product, the canonical decomposition itself This is done by completing the program based on the Ricci flow with surgeries, first proposed by R Hamilton This is the subject of Boileau’s notes from Sect 2.4 Since the appearance of Perelman’s three celebrated preprints, several simplifications and variants of the original proofs have been developed by various authors At the end of the day, we can say that the Poincaré conjecture (i.e., the case when the Ricci flow with surgery becomes extinct in finite time) is in a sense the “simplest” case The general case (when the Ricci flow with surgery exists at all times, which includes the complete hyperbolization theorem) requires nontrivial extra arguments, in particular, to obtain a key non-collapsing theorem In Perelman’s original work, these come from the theory of Alexandrov spaces Bessières, Besson, Boileau, Maillot, and Porti developed instead an alternative approach where the basic tools are Thurston’s hyperbolization theorem for Haken manifolds and some well-established properties of Gromov’s simplicial volume, allowing one to bypass the need for the (somewhat more exotic) theory of Alexandrov spaces Boileau’s notes are largely based on the monograph by L Bessières, G Besson, M Boileau, S Maillot, and J Porti, Geometrisation of 3-Manifolds, EMS Tracts in Mathematics 13, 2010 In this tract, the authors developed a slightly different notion of surgery by defining the so-called Ricci flow with bubbling-off Actually, one might roughly say that the Ricci flow with bubbling-off reduces the general hyperbolization theorem to Thurston’s hyperbolization theorem for Haken manifolds Carlo Sinestrari provided an extensive introduction to the Ricci flow by first giving a survey of the basic results and examples, then concentrating on the analysis of the singularities of the flow in the three-dimensional case, which is needed in Hamilton and Perelman’s surgery construction After reviewing the properties of the Ricci flow and the fundamental estimates of the theory, such as Hamilton’s Harnack differential inequality, the Hamilton–Ivey pinching estimate, and Perelman’s no collapsing result, he presented Perelman’s analysis of kappa-solutions and the canonical neighborhood property which gives a full description of the singular behavior of the solutions in dimension All these results are central to the proof of the Poincaré and geometrization conjectures The exposition is quite accessible to nonexperts Indeed, the presentation is often informal, and the proofs are omitted except in some simple and significant cases, focusing more on the description of the results and their applications and consequences A final detailed bibliographical section gives to the interested reader all the references needed for an advanced study of these topics viii Preface Gang Tian’s expository notes, based on his lectures, discuss some aspects of the Analytic Minimal Model Program through the Kähler–Ricci flow, developed in collaboration with other authors, particularly, J Song and Z Zhang Very stimulating open problems and conjectures are also presented Section 4.2 contains a detailed account of the sharp version of the Hamilton– DeTurck local existence theorem, which holds in the Kähler case: the maximal time Tmax 0; C1 such that the flow exists on the interval Œ0; Tmax / is precisely determined in terms of a cohomological property of the initial Kähler metric As a corollary, one deduces that Tmax D C1 for every initial metric on a compact Kähler manifold with a numerically positive canonical bundle In Sect 4.3, the limit singularities that can arise when t ! Tmax < C1 are analyzed After having established a general convergence theorem (Theorem 4.3.1), one faces questions concerning regularity and the geometric properties of the limit A combination of partial results (particularly in the case of projective varieties and when one can apply deep results of algebraic geometry) and well-motivated conjectures outlines a pregnant scenario Sections 4.4 and 4.5 discuss the construction of a Kähler–Ricci flow with surgery (assuming the truth of a conjecture stated in Sect 4.3) and its asymptotic behavior Numerous conjectures arise throughout this discussion such as: the characterization (up to birational isomorphism) of “Fano-like” manifolds as those whose flow becomes extinct at a finite time; the characterization of uniruled manifolds (up to birational isomorphism) as those whose flow collapses in finite time; and the existence of a flow with surgery globally defined in time and with only finitely many surgery times In Sect 4.6, algebraic surfaces are considered, showing how most of the program is carried out in this case We are pleased to express our thanks to the speakers for their excellent lectures and to the participants for contributing with their enthusiasm to the success of the Summer School The speakers, the participants, and the CIME organizers collectively created a stimulating, rich, pleasant, and friendly atmosphere at Cetraro For this reason, we would finally like to thank the Scientific Committee of CIME and, in particular, Pietro Zecca and Elvira Mascolo Pisa, Italy Naples, Italy Riccardo Benedetti Carlo Mantegazza Acknowledgements CIME activity is carried out with the collaboration and financial support of: INdAM (Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica) and MIUR (Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca) ix 124 G Tian where !N T is the pull-forward Q T !Q T on Y and f W Y 7! M is the developing map (possibly with singularities6 which maps generic point of Y to the corresponding fiber in the moduli space M of Kähler-Ricci solitons on generic fibers, and !WP is the L2 -metric, i.e., the Weil-Peterson metric, on the moduli M Obviously, it remains to prove that (4.28) is the limit of the Ricci flow !Q t (t < T) in a suitable sense One can use this modified Ricci flow to extend !Q t across T One of advantages for using this flow instead of the Kähler-Ricci flow is that it encodes more information of the original X through the developing map For simplicity, we will just use the Ricci flow to extend solution across the singular time T in our program It should not be difficult to prove a local existence theorem on the stationary solutions of (4.28) This is amount to solving a complex Monge-Ampere equation and analogous to the generalized Kähler-Einstein metrics studied in [15, 16] In fact, our discussions are inspired by those joint works 4.4 Extending Kähler-Ricci Flow Across Singular Time In this section, we discuss how to extend the Kähler-Ricci flow !Q t across the singular time T, assuming that we have solved Conjecture 4.3.7 proposed in last section Then we have a Kähler variety XT and a Gromov-Hausdorff limit !N T on XT which is smooth outside a subvariety B XT A natural question is how to continue the Kähler-Ricci flow on XT starting at !N T There are two difficulties: XT may not be smooth, so we need to study the Kähler-Ricci flow on a singular space It is not even clear whether or not we can make sense of the Kähler-Ricci flow in a useful way Even if XT is smooth, !N T may not be smooth, so we need to solve the KählerRicci flow with weak initial value !N T In short, we need a local existence theorem for (4.1) when the underlying space may be singular or initial Kähler metric is not smooth First we assume that XT is smooth Then we can choose the Ricci representative in setting up (4.2) such that !T is the pull-back of a smooth Kähler metric on XT , still denoted by !T for simplicity As we did in Sect p 4.2, we can reduce (4.1) N uT for some Kähler on XT to a scalar flow: First we write !N T D !T0 C @@N 0 metric !T Choose a (1,1)-form D Ric.˝ / for a volume form ˝ on XT Define 0 !t D !T t T/ for t Ä T, then (4.1) is reduced to a variant of (4.2): p N n @u !tCT C @@u D log ; lim u.t; / D uN T : t!0 @t ˝0 (4.29) The singularities are caused by those singular fibers, but the developing map should be meromorphic Notes on Kähler-Ricci Flow 125 If (4.29) has a solution u ; t/ for t 0; T /, then !Q TCt extends previous KählerRicci flow !Q t (t Œ0; T/) to T; T C T /, where !Q TCt D !TCt C p N ; t/: @@u Moreover, we have limt!T !Q t D !Q T and limt!TC !Q t D !N T in the sense of distribution It follows p from the potential theory that for any bounded function ' such that N !'

Xcan over its canonical model Xcan Suppose < dim Xcan D Ä < dim X D n Then for any initial Kähler metric !0 , the solution !.s/ Q for (4.33) converges to !can as currents, where !can is the unique generalized Kähler-Einstein metric on Xcan Moreover, for any compact subset K Xcan , there is a constant CK such that jjR.!.s//jj Q L1 K// C e.n Ä/s sup jj!.s/ Q n Äj x2K x/ where R.!.s// Q denotes the scalar curvature of !.s/ Q jjL1 x// Ä CK ; (4.39) Notes on Kähler-Ricci Flow 133 If n D 2, then the above implies the convergence in the C1;˛ -topology for any ˛ 0; 1/ on any compact subset in Xcan We believe that the same can be proved in any dimensions Moreover, we also expect !GKE in the Conjecture 4.5.7 The solution !.s/ Q converges to the unique limit Gromov-Hausdorff topology and the convergence is in the smooth topology in Xcan / This is even open for complex surfaces In the above, we assume that X has semi-ample KX This is indeed true if the Abundance conjecture holds If KX is nef, (4.33) still has a global solution !.s/ Q Clearly, it will be extremely interesting to study the asymptotic behavior of !.s/ Q without assuming the Abundance Conjecture, namely, give a differential geometric proof of the convergence of !.s/ Q The success of such a direct approach will yield many deep applications to studying the structures of Kähler manifolds To solve the above conjecture or succeed in the above direct approach, we may need to develop a theory of compactness for Kähler metrics with bounded scalar curvature For Kähler surfaces, a compactness theorem of this sort was proved in [26] Also note that the scalar curvature is uniformly bounded along (4.33) on any compact projective manifold with semi-positive canonical bundle (see [18]) We also refer the readers to [13, 14] for corresponding scalar curvature estimate for Kähler-Ricci flow on Fano manifolds 4.6 The Case of Algebraic Surfaces In this section, we will carry out the program described above for complex surfaces Almost all the results in this section are taken from [27] (for surfaces of general type) and [15] (for elliptic surfaces) We just make a few simple observations in order to deduce the program from those previous works For simplicity, we assume that X is an algebraic surface The general case for Kähler surfaces can be done in a similar way As before, let !Q t be a maximal solution of (4.1) on X Œ0; T If T < 1, then Œ!0 Tc1 X/ is nef There are three possibilities: Q D Tt / !Q t , If Œ!0 Tc1 X/ D 0, then X is a Del-Pezzo surface and !.s/ t where s D T log.1 T /, converges to a Kähler-Ricci soliton as s ! or equivalently, t ! T (cf [21, 28, 30]) If Œ!0 Tc1 X/ 6D but Œ!0 Tc1 X//2 D 0, then there is a fibration W X 7! ˙ with rational curves as fibers (possibly with finitely many singular fibers) such that Œ!0 Tc1 X/ D Œ!˙ for some Kähler metric !˙ on ˙ It follows that p as t ! T, !Q t converges to a positive current of the form !˙ C 1@@uT / for some bounded function uT on ˙ To extend (4.1) across T, one needs to 134 G Tian solve (4.2) on ˙ with uT as the initial value This is the same as solving the following for t T, !˙ @u D log @t t T/ ˙ C ˝˙ p 1@@u ! ; u.T; / D uT ; (4.40) where ˝˙ is a volume form on ˙ with Ric.˝˙ / D ˙ One can solve this flow by using the standard potential theory in complex dimension Let !Q t be the resulting maximal solution of (4.40) (t T) If the genus g.˙/ of ˙ is zero, then !Q t becomes extinct at some finite time T2 > T or after appropriate scaling, these metrics converge to the standard round metric on ˙ D S2 as t ! T2 Hence, it verifies Conjecture 4.4.5 in case of algebraic surfaces If g.˙/ D 1, then !Q t exists for all t T and converges to a flat metric as t ! If g.˙/ > 1, then !Q t exists for all t T and after scaling, converges to a hyperbolic metric as t ! If Œ!0 Tc1 X//2 > 0, then Œ!0 Tc1 X/ is semi-ample, so it can vanish only along a divisor It is easy to see that for each irreducible component D of this divisor, KX D < Moreover, D2 < By the Adjunction Formula, D is a rational curve of self-intersection 1, so the divisor is made of finite disjoint (-1) rational curves and consequently, we can blow down them to get a new algebraic surface XT Moreover, the limit !Q T descends to a positive current with continuous potential and well-defined bounded volume form By Theorem 4.4.1, one can extend (4.1) across T Notice that the extension !Q t for t > T is smooth Either KXT is nef and there is a global solution on XT ,or !Q t develops finite-time singularity at some T2 > T In the later case, one can repeat the above steps 1, and Since H2 X; Z/ is finite, after finitely many surgeries, we will arrive at a minimal algebraic surface XN , that is, KXN is nef Then (4.1) has a global solution, denoted again by !Q t , on XN Let us study its asymptotic behavior There are three possibilities according to the Kodaira dimension Ä.X/ of X: If Ä.X/ D 0, then c1 X/R D or a finite cover of X is either a K3 surface or an Abelian surface In this case, the solution !Q t on XN converges to a Ricci flat Kähler metric In other two cases, we better use the normalized Kähler-Ricci flow (4.33) on XN : @!.s/ Q D Ric.!.s// Q @s !.s/; Q !.0/ Q D !0 ; where t D es and !.s/ Q D e s !Q t If Ä.X/ D 1, then XN is a minimal elliptic surface: W XN 7! ˙ It was proved in [15] that as s ! 1, !.s/ Q converges to a positive current of the form !Q / and the convergence is in the C1;1 -topology on any compact subset Notes on Kähler-Ricci Flow 135 outside singular fibers Fp1 ;

elliptic curves If Ä.X/ D 2, then XN is a surface of general type and its canonical model Xcan is a Kähler orbifold with possibly finitely many rational double points and ample canonical bundle By the version of the Aubin-Yau Theorem for orbifolds, there is an unique Kähler-Einstein metric !Q on Xcan with scalar curvature It was proved in [27] that as s ! 1, !.s/ Q converges to !Q and converges in the C1 topology outside those rational curves over the rational double points This shows that our program indeed works for algebraic surfaces except that we did not check if the blown-down surfaces coincide with the metric completions described in Conjecture 4.3.7 Acknowledgements This work was partially supported by NSF grants References H.D Cao, Deformation of Kähler metrics to Kähler-Einstein metrics on compact Kähler manifolds Invent Math 81(2), 359–372 (1985) P Cascini, G La Nave, Kähler-Ricci flow and the minimal model program for projective varieties (2006) Preprint, arXiv:math.DG/0603064 X.X Chen, P Lu, G Tian, A note on uniformization of Riemann surfaces by Ricci flow Proc Am Math Soc 134(11), 3391–3393 (2006) X.X Chen, G Tian, Z Zhang, On the weak Kähler-Ricci flow (2008) Preprint, arXiv:math.DG/0802.0809 T Collin, V Tosatti, Kähler currents and null loci (2013) Preprint, arXiv:1304.5216 J.P Demailly, N Pali, Degenerate complex Monge-Ampère equations over compact Kähler manifolds (2007) Preprint, arXiv:math.DG/0710.5109 S Dinew, Z Zhang, Stability of bounded solutions for degenerate complex Monge-Ampère equations (2007) arXiv:0711.3643 L.C Evans, Classical solutions of fully nonlinear, convex, second-order elliptic equations Commun Pure Appl Math 35(3), 333–363 (1982) P Eyssidieux, V Guedj, A Zeriahi, A priori L1 -estimates for degenerate complex MongeAmpère equations (2007) Preprint, arXiv:0712.3743 10 Y Kawamata, The cone of curves of algebraic varieties Ann Math (2) 119(3), 603–633 (1984) 11 Y Kawamata, Pluricanonical systems on minimal algebraic varieties Invent Math 79(3), 567– 588 (1985) 12 S Kolodziej, The complex Monge-Ampère equation Acta Math 180(1), 69–117 (1998) 13 G Perelman, The entropy formula for the Ricci flow and its geometric applications (2002) Preprint, arXiv:math.DG/0211159 14 N Sesum, G Tian, Perelman’s argument for uniform bounded scalar curvature and diameter along the Kähler-Ricci flow Preprint (2005) 136 G Tian 15 J Song, G Tian, The Kähler-Ricci flow on minimal surfaces of positive Kodaira dimension Invent Math 170(3), 609–653 (2007) 16 J Song, G Tian, Canonical measures and Kähler-Ricci flow J Am Math Soc 25(2), 303–353 (2012) 17 J Song, G Tian, The Kahler-Ricci flow through singularities (2009) Preprint, arXiv:0909.4898 18 J Song, G Tian, Bounding scalar curvature for global solutions of the Kọhler-Ricci flow (2011) Preprint, arXiv:1111.5681 ă 19 J Song, B Weinkove, Lecture notes on the Khler-Ricci flow (2012) Preprint, arXiv:1212.3653 20 G Tian, Smoothness of the universal deformation space of compact Calabi-Yau manifolds and its Petersson-Weil metric, in Mathematical Aspects of String Theory (San Diego, Calif., 1986) (World Scientific Publishing, Singapore, 1987), pp 629–646 21 G Tian, On Calabi’s conjecture for complex surfaces with positive first Chern class Invent Math 101(1), 101–172 (1990) 22 G Tian, Kähler-Einstein metrics with positive scalar curvature Invent Math 130, 1–39 (1997) 23 G Tian, Geometry and nonlinear analysis, in Proceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians (Beijing 2002), vol I (Higher Education Press, Beijing, 2002), pp 475–493 24 G Tian, Existence of Einstein metrics on Fano manifolds, in Metric and Differential Geometry Progress in Mathematics, vol 297 (Birkhäuser/Springer, Basel/Berlin, 2012) 25 G Tian, New progresses and results on Kähler-Ricci flow, in Proceeding for J.P Bourguingnon’s 60 Birthday Conference (2007) 26 G Tian, J Viaclovsky, Moduli spaces of critical Riemannian metrics in dimension four Adv Math 196(2), 346–372 (2005) 27 G Tian, Z Zhang, On the Kähler-Ricci flow on projective manifolds of general type Chin Ann Math Ser B 27(2), 179–192 (2006) 28 G Tian, X Zhu, Convergence of Kähler Ricci flow J Am Math Soc 20(3), 675–699 (2007) 29 H Tsuji, Existence and degeneration of Kähler-Einstein metrics on minimal algebraic varieties of general type Math Ann 281(1), 123–133 (1988) 30 X.J Wang, X Zhu, Kähler-Ricci solitons on toric manifolds with positive first Chern class Adv Math 188(1), 87–103 (2004) 31 S.T Yau, On the Ricci curvature of a compact Kähler manifold and the complex MongeAmpère equation, I Commun Pure Appl Math 31, 339–411 (1978) 32 Z Zhang, On degenerate Monge-Ampère equations over closed Kähler manifolds Int Math Res Not 2006, Art ID 63640, 18 (2006) 33 Z Zhang, General weak limit for Kähler-Ricci flow (2011) Preprint, arXiv:1104.2961 LECTURE NOTES IN MATHEMATICS 123 Editors in Chief: J.-M Morel, B Teissier; Editorial Policy Lecture Notes aim to report new developments in all areas of mathematics and their applications – quickly, informally and at a high level Mathematical texts analysing new developments in modelling and numerical simulation are welcome Manuscripts should be reasonably self-contained and rounded off Thus they may, and often will, present not only results of the author but also related work by other people They may be based on specialised lecture courses Furthermore, the manuscripts should provide sufficient motivation, examples and applications This clearly distinguishes Lecture Notes from journal articles or technical reports which normally are very concise Articles intended for a journal but too long to be accepted by most journals, usually not have this “lecture notes” character For similar reasons it is unusual for doctoral theses to be accepted for the Lecture Notes series, though habilitation theses may be appropriate Besides monographs, multi-author manuscripts resulting from SUMMER SCHOOLS or similar INTENSIVE COURSES are welcome, provided their objective was held to present an active mathematical topic to an audience at the beginning or intermediate graduate level (a list of participants should be provided) The resulting manuscript should not be just a collection of course notes, but should require advance planning and coordination among the main lecturers The subject matter should dictate the structure of the book This structure should be motivated and explained in a scientific introduction, and the notation, references, index and formulation of results should be, if possible, unified by the editors Each contribution should have an abstract and an introduction referring to the other contributions In other words, more preparatory work must go into a multi-authored volume than simply assembling a disparate collection of papers, communicated at the event Manuscripts should be submitted either online at www.editorialmanager.com/lnm to Springer’s mathematics editorial in Heidelberg, or electronically to one of the series editors Authors should be aware that incomplete or insufficiently close-to-final manuscripts almost always result in longer refereeing times and nevertheless unclear referees’ recommendations, making further refereeing of a final draft necessary The strict minimum amount of material that will be considered should include a detailed outline describing the planned contents of each chapter, a bibliography and several sample chapters Parallel submission of a manuscript to another publisher while under consideration for LNM is not acceptable and can lead to rejection In general, monographs will be sent out to at least external referees for evaluation A final decision to publish can be made only on the basis of the complete manuscript, however a refereeing process leading to a preliminary decision can be based on a pre-final or incomplete manuscript Volume Editors of multi-author works are expected to arrange for the refereeing, to the usual scientific standards, of the individual contributions If the resulting reports can be forwarded to the LNM Editorial Board, this is very helpful If no reports are forwarded or if other questions remain unclear in respect of homogeneity etc, the series editors may wish to consult external referees for an overall evaluation of the volume Manuscripts should in general be submitted in English Final manuscripts should contain at least 100 pages of mathematical text and should always include – a table of contents; – an informative introduction, with adequate motivation and perhaps some historical remarks: it should be accessible to a reader not intimately familiar with the topic treated; – a subject index: as a rule this is genuinely helpful for the reader – For evaluation purposes, manuscripts should be submitted as pdf files Careful preparation of the manuscripts will help keep production time short besides ensuring satisfactory appearance of the finished book in print and online After acceptance of the manuscript authors will be asked to prepare the final LaTeX source files (see LaTeX templates online: https://www.springer.com/gb/authors-editors/book-authorseditors/manuscriptpreparation/5636) plus the corresponding pdf- or zipped ps-file The LaTeX source files are essential for producing the full-text online version of the book, see http://link.springer.com/bookseries/304 for the existing online volumes of LNM) The technical production of a Lecture Notes volume takes approximately 12 weeks Additional instructions, if necessary, are available on request from lnm@springer.com Authors receive a total of 30 free copies of their volume and free access to their book on SpringerLink, but no royalties They are entitled to a discount of 33.3 % on the price of Springer books purchased for their personal use, if ordering directly from Springer Commitment to publish is made by a Publishing Agreement;
