Summary and Info
This book presents the proceedings from a conference at Temple University celebrating the work of Leon Ehrenpreis, distinguished by its insistence upon getting to the heart of the mathematics and by its astonishing consistency in doing so successfully. Professor Ehrenpreis has worked in many areas of mathematics and has found connections among all of them. For example, we can find his analysis ideas in the context of number theory, geometric thinking within analysis, transcendental number theory tied to partial differential equations.The conference brought together the communities of mathematicians working in the areas of interest to Professor Ehrenpreis and allowed them to share the research inspired by his work. The collection of articles presents current research on PDE's, several complex variables, analytic number theory, integral geometry and tomography. The thinking of Professor Ehrenpreis has contributed fundamental concepts and techniques in these areas and has motivated a wealth of research results. This volume offers a survey of the fundamental principles that unified the conference and influenced the mathematics of Leon Ehrenpreis
