On Negatively Curved Finsler Manifolds of Scalar Curvature
In this paper, we prove a global rigidity theorem for negatively
curved Finsler metrics on a compact manifold of dimension $n \geq 3$.
We show that for such a Finsler manifold, if the flag curvature is a
scalar function on the tangent bundle, then the Finsler metric is of
Randers type. We also study the case when the Finsler metric is
locally projectively flat

A Compactness Theorem for YangMills Connections
In this paper, we consider YangMills connections
on a vector bundle $E$ over a compact Riemannian manifold $M$ of
dimension $m> 4$, and we show that any set of YangMills
connections with the uniformly bounded $L^{\frac{m}{2}}$norm of
curvature is compact in $C^{\infty}$ topology.

On Harmonic Theory in Flows
Recently [8], a harmonic theory was developed for a compact
contact manifold from the viewpoint of the transversal geometry of
contact flow. A contact flow is a typical example of geodesible
flow. As a natural generalization of the contact flow, the present
paper develops a harmonic theory for various flows on compact
manifolds. We introduce the notions of $H$harmonic and
$H^*$harmonic spaces associated to a H\"ormander flow. We also
introduce the notions of basic harmonic spaces associated to a weak
basic flow. One of our main results is to show that in the special
case of isometric flow these harmonic spaces are isomorphic to the
cohomology spaces of certain complexes. Moreover, we find an
obstruction for a geodesible flow to be isometric.

Rigidity of Hamiltonian Actions
This paper studies the following question: Given an
$\omega'$symplectic action of a Lie group on a manifold $M$ which
coincides, as a smooth action, with a Hamiltonian $\omega$action,
when is this action a Hamiltonian $\omega'$action? Using a result of
MorseBott theory presented in Section~2, we show in Section~3 of this
paper that such an action is in fact a Hamiltonian $\omega'$action,
provided that $M$ is compact and that the Lie group is compact and
connected. This result was first proved by LalondeMcDuffPolterovich
in 1999 as a consequence of a more general theory that made use of
hard geometric analysis. In this paper, we prove it using classical
methods only.

On Frankel's Theorem
In this paper we show that two minimal hypersurfaces in a manifold with
positive Ricci curvature must intersect. This is then generalized to show
that in manifolds with positive Ricci curvature in the integral sense two
minimal hypersurfaces must be close to each other. We also show
what happens if a manifold with nonnegative Ricci curvature admits
two nonintersecting minimal hypersurfaces.

The Local MÃ¶bius Equation and Decomposition Theorems in Riemannian Geometry
A partial differential equation, the local M\"obius equation, is
introduced in Riemannian geometry which completely characterizes the
local twisted product structure of a Riemannian manifold. Also the
characterizations of warped product and product structures of
Riemannian manifolds are made by the local M\"obius equation and an
additional partial differential equation.

On Strongly Convex Indicatrices in Minkowski Geometry
The geometry of indicatrices is the foundation of Minkowski geometry.
A strongly convex indicatrix in a vector space is a strongly convex
hypersurface. It admits a Riemannian metric and has a distinguished
invariant(Cartan) torsion. We prove the existence of nontrivial
strongly convex indicatrices with vanishing mean torsion and discuss
the relationship between the mean torsion and the Riemannian curvature
tensor for indicatrices of Randers type.

LinÃ©arisation symplectique en dimension 2
In this paper the germ of neighborhood of a compact leaf in a
Lagrangian foliation is symplectically classified when the compact
leaf is $\bT^2$, the affine structure induced by the Lagrangian
foliation on the leaf is complete, and the holonomy of $\bT^2$ in
the foliation linearizes. The germ of neighborhood is classified by a
function, depending on one transverse coordinate, this function is
related to the affine structure of the nearly compact leaves.

Quantization of Bending Deformations of Polygons In $\mathbb{E}^3$, Hypergeometric Integrals and the Gassner Representation
The Hamiltonian potentials of the bending deformations of $n$gons
in $\E^3$ studied in \cite{KM} and \cite{Kl} give rise to a Hamiltonian
action of the Malcev Lie algebra $\p_n$ of the pure braid group
$P_n$ on the moduli space $M_r$ of $n$gon linkages with the sidelengths
$r= (r_1,\dots, r_n)$ in $\E^3$. If $e\in M_r$ is a singular point we may
linearize the vector fields in $\p_n$ at $e$. This linearization yields a
flat connection $\nabla$ on the space $\C^n_*$ of $n$ distinct points on
$\C$. We show that the monodromy of $\nabla$ is the dual of a quotient
of a specialized reduced Gassner representation.

Helices, Hasimoto Surfaces and BÃ¤cklund Transformations
Travelling wave solutions to the vortex filament flow generated by
elastica produce surfaces in $\R^3$ that carry mutually orthogonal
foliations by geodesics and by helices. These surfaces are classified
in the special cases where the helices are all congruent or are all
generated by a single screw motion. The first case yields a new
characterization for the B\"acklund transformation for constant
torsion curves in $\R^3$, previously derived from the wellknown
transformation for pseudospherical surfaces. A similar investigation
for surfaces in $H^3$ or $S^3$ leads to a new transformation for
constant torsion curves in those spaces that is also derived from
pseudospherical surfaces.

Spherical Functions on $\SO_0(p,q)/\SO(p)\times \SO(q)$
An integral formula is derived for the spherical functions on the
symmetric space $G/K=\break
\SO_0(p,q)/\SO(p)\times \SO(q)$. This formula
allows us to state some results about the analytic continuation of
the spherical functions to a tubular neighbourhood of the
subalgebra $\a$ of the abelian part in the decomposition $G=KAK$.
The corresponding result is then obtained for the heat kernel of the
symmetric space $\SO_0(p,q)/\SO (p)\times\SO (q)$ using the Plancherel
formula.
In the Conclusion, we discuss how this analytic continuation can be
a helpful tool to study the growth of the heat kernel.

Conjugate Radius and Sphere Theorem
Bessa [Be] proved that for given $n$ and $i_0$, there exists
an $\varepsilon(n,i_0)>0$ depending on $n,i_0$ such that if $M$
admits a metric $g$ satisfying $\Ric_{(M,g)} \ge n1$, $\inj_{(M,g)}
\ge i_0>0$ and $\diam_{(M,g)} \ge \pi\varepsilon$, then $M$ is
diffeomorphic to the standard sphere. In this note, we improve this
result by replacing a lower bound on the injectivity radius with a
lower bound of the conjugate radius.
