Résumé :
En juillet 1992, une desk Ronde de Géométrie Différentielle s'est tenue au CIRM de Luminy en l'honneur de Marcel Berger. Les conférences qui sont reproduites dans ces Actes recouvrent los angeles plupart des sujets abordés par Marcel Berger en Géométrie Différentielle et plus précisément : l'holonomie (Bryant), los angeles courbure [courbure sectionnelle confident (Grove), courbure sectionnelle négative (Abresch et Schroeder, Ballmann et Ledrappier), courbure de Ricci négative (Lohkamp), courbure scalaire (Delanoë, Hebey et Vaugon), courbure totale (Shioya)], le spectre du laplacien (Anné, Colin de Verdière, Matheus, Pesce), les inégalités isopérimétriques et les systoles (Calabi, Carron, Gromov), ainsi que quelques sujets annexes [espaces d'Alexandrov (Shiohama et Tanaka, Yamaguchi), elastica (Koiso), géométrie sous-riemannienne (Valère et Pelletier)]. Les auteurs sont pour l. a. plupart des géomètres confirmés, dont plusieurs ont travaillé avec Marcel Berger, mais aussi quelques jeunes. Plusieurs articles (Bryant, Colin, Grove...) contiennent une présentation synthétique des résultats récents dans le domaine concerné, pour mieux les rendre obtainable à un public de non-spécialistes.

Proceedings of the around desk in Differential Geometry in honour of Marcel Berger
July 1992, a around desk in Differential Geometry was once equipped on the CIRM in Luminy (France) in honour of Marcel Berger. In those complaints, contributions disguise many of the fields studied through Marcel Berger in Differential Geometry, specifically : holonomy (Bryant), curvature [positive sectional curvature (Grove), unfavorable sectional curvature (Abresch and Schroeder, Ballmann and Ledrappier), detrimental Ricci curvature (Lohkamp), scalar curvature (Delanoë, Hebey and Vaugon), overall curvature (Shioya)], spectrum of the Laplacian (Anné, Colin de Verdière, Matheus, Pesce), isoperimetric and isosystolic inequalities (Calabi, Carron, Gromov), including a few similar topics [Alexandrov areas (Shiohama and Tanaka, Yamaguchi), elastica (Koiso), subriemannian geometry (Valère and Pelletier)]. Authors are normally geometers who labored with Marcel Berger at it slow, and in addition a few more youthful ones. a few papers (Bryant, Colin, Grove...) comprise a short assessment of contemporary ends up in their specific fields, with the non-experts in brain.

2. at the contributions

Among the above pointed out meetings, 5 aren't reproduced in those notes,
namely these via Christopher CROKE, Detlef GROMOLL, Jerry KAZDAN, Ren´e

Some of them were released somewhere else, specifically :

Conjugacy and tension for manifolds with a parallel vector field
J. Differential Geom. 39 (1994), 659-680.
Lp pinching and the geometry of compact Riemannian manifolds
Comment. Math. Helvetici sixty nine (1994), 249-271.
On the opposite hand, Professor SHIOHAMA, who used to be invited to offer a conversation, had
not been in a position to come to the desk Ronde. He sought after however to offer a
contribution to Marcel Berger. it's been extra to this quantity.

Thus, it is sufficient to work with the finite piece g0 + gI and verify that ˆˆ ˆˆ I ∩ Ω the following identity holds on U ˆˆ i ,K ˆˆ i = xi +η 2 h(xi ) δi i . (g0 + gI ) K 1 2 1 1 1 2 Here, we have made use of the fact that by the local geometry of the intersection Ki1 , Ki2 = xi1 δi1 i2 on UI , provided that i1 , i2 ∈ I . To finish the proof, we recall that xi1 vanishes identically on SI for any i1 ∈ I and take into account that h(0) = 1 by hypothesis. The next ingredient into our evaluation of the sectional curvatures along SˆI ˆˆ I whose restrictions to pr−1 (SˆI ) generate the line are analytic vector fields vˆi on U I ν ˆˆ I and not bundles Li , i ∈ I.

After expressing Kj and DKj in terms of vj and ξj , we just need to collect terms appropriately, using just the definitions of pj , pξj , and the ∧ –product. 2.
