 The Workshop on Geometric Evolution Equations was a gathering of experts that produced this comprehensive collection of articles. Many of the papers relate to the Ricci flow and Hamilton's program for understanding the geometry and topology of 3manifolds. The use of evolution equations in geometry can lead to remarkable results. Of particular interest is the potential solution of Thurston's Geometrization Conjecture and the Poincaré Conjecture. Yet applying the method poses serious technical problems. Contributors to this volume explain some of these issues and demonstrate a noteworthy deftness in the handling of technical areas. Various topics in geometric evolution equations and related fields are presented. Among other topics covered are minimal surface equations, mean curvature flow, harmonic map flow, Calabi flow, Ricci flow (including a numerical study), KählerRicci flow, function theory on Kähler manifolds, flows of plane curves, convexity estimates, and the ChristoffelMinkowski problem. The material is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in geometric analysis and connections to topology. Related titles of interest include The Ricci Flow: An Introduction. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometric analysis and connections to topology. Table of Contents
