This volume is about the life and work of Shiing-Shen Chern (1911-), one of the leading mathematicians of this century. The book contains personal accounts by some friends, together with a summary of the mathematical works by Chern himself. Besides a selection of the mathematical papers the book also contains all his papers published after 1988.
The life and mathematics of S.S. Chern; on integral geometry in Klein spaces; a simple intrinsic proof of the Gauss-Bonnet formula for closed Riemannian manifolds; a theorem on orientable surfaces in four-dimensional space; Hermitian vector bundles and the equidistribution of the zeroes of their holomorphic sections; intrinsic norms on a complex manifold; characteristic forms and geometrical invariants; Dupin submanifolds in Lie sphere geometry; an introduction to Dupin submanifolds; transgression in associated bundles; on a notable connection in Finsler geometry.
