Finite and Infinite Dimensional Analysis in Honor of Leonard Gross: AMS Special Session, Analysis on Infinite Dimensional Spaces, January 12-13, 2001, New Orleans, Louisiana

This book contains the proceedings of the special session in honor of Leonard Gross held at the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings in New Orleans (LA). The speakers were specialists in a variety of fields, and many were Professor Gross' former Ph.D. students and their descendants. Papers in this volume present results from several areas of mathematics. They illustrate applications of powerful ideas that originated in Gross' work and permeate diverse fields. Topics of this title include stochastic partial differential equations, white noise analysis, Brownian motion, Segal-Bargmann analysis, heat kernels, and some applications. The volume should be useful to graduate students and researchers. It provides perspective on current activity and on central ideas and techniques in the topics covered.
