Normally, mathematical research has been divided into "pure" and "applied," and only within the past decade has this distinction become blurred. However, differential geometry is one area of mathematics that has not made this distinction and has consistently played a vital role in both general areas.

The papers in this volume represent the proceedings of a conference entitled "Differential Geometry: The Interface Between Pure and Applied Mathematics," which was held in San Antonio, Texas, in April 1986. The purpose of the conference was to explore recent exciting applications and challenging classical problems in differential geometry. The papers represent a tremendous range of applications and techniques in such diverse areas as ordinary differential equations, Lie groups, algebra, numerical analysis, and control theory.
