More often than not, mathematical study has been divided into 'pure' and 'applied', and purely in the prior decade has this contrast turn into blurred. despite the fact that, differential geometry is one zone of arithmetic that has now not made this contrast and has continuously performed an essential function in either basic components. The papers during this quantity characterize the lawsuits of a convention entitled 'Differential Geometry: The Interface among natural and utilized Mathematics', which was once held in San Antonio, Texas, in April 1986. the aim of the convention used to be to discover fresh interesting functions and hard classical difficulties in differential geometry. The papers symbolize an incredible variety of functions and strategies in such various parts as traditional differential equations, Lie teams, algebra, numerical research and keep an eye on concept
