Seminar on Laplace operator and Geometry, Jochen Denzler
I gave this seminar, together with Tony Tromba, at the
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, in Summer 1994.
(I had tried an earlier version before, at the ETH Zürich,
together with U. Kirchgraber.)
The punchline was that the students had to acquire a vast variety
of prerequisites through self-study homework: we used 2 hours per week
discussing this material, and 2 more hours where the participants actually
presented work. In spite of the fact that these four work hours counted
only as two credit hours, the very intense tutoring and the appeal of the
material attracted sufficiently many people to carry out the program.
Here is the course material. It is in German language,
please pardon me that I don't have the time to translate it.
Some grad students may be able to use it as a concise introduction
or for self-study.
I reserve all copyright in this material, but you are welcome to use
it for research and teaching and learning, as long as you don't do it
Alle hier vorliegenden Steilkurse haben eine sehr selektive Themenauswahl,
genau auf den Bedarf des Seminars zugeschnitten; vielleicht sind sie
doch dem einen oder anderen nützlich.
