The international Mont Terri rock laboratory in Switzerland plays a central role in the safety and construction of deep geological nuclear repositories in clay formations. The laboratory has developed and refined a range of new measurement and evaluation methods: it has e.g. advanced the determination of rock parameters using innovative borehole geophysics, improved the methodology for characterizing porewater and microbial activity in claystones, and greatly improved our understanding of diffusion and retention processes of radionuclides in and through claystones. The methods and insights described in this compendium can also be applied to lowpermeability rocks at various sites around the globe, and in other fields of application.

The two parts of the present volume contain extended conference abstracts corresponding to selected talks given by participants at the "Conference on Geometric Analysis" (thirteen abstracts) and at the "Conference on Type Theory, Homotopy Theory and Univalent Foundations" (seven abstracts), both held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) in Barcelona from July 1st to 5th, 2013, and from September 23th to 27th, 2013, respectively. Most of them are brief articles, containing preliminary presentations of new results not yet published in regular research journals. The articles are the result of a direct collaboration between active researchers in the area after working in a dynamic and productive atmosphere.The first part is about Geometric Analysis and Conformal Geometry; this modern field lies at the intersection of many branches of mathematics (Riemannian, Conformal, Complex or Algebraic Geometry, Calculus of Variations, PDE's, etc) and relates directly to the physical world, since many natural phenomena posses an intrinsic geometric content. The second part is about Type Theory, Homotopy Theory and Univalent Foundations.The book is intended for established researchers, as well as for PhD and postdoctoral students who want to learn more about the latest advances in these highly active areas of research.

The Grand Challenge for the Future

The most urgently needed vaccines are those against povertyrelated diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria and HIV. However, there is a considerable gap between the development of a vaccine and the implementation as a useful measure for disease control. Major obstacles need to be overcome even after successful completion of the preclinical stage.
This book provides an important link between vaccine development and application under the particular conditions in developing countries. The editors, S.H.E. Kaufmann and P.H. Lambert  one from the field of basic research and the other an expert on the side of applied vaccinology  have gathered contributions from specialists of both fields in an attempt to create a source of information that has thus far not been available. 
Poisson Structures and Their Normal Forms

Poisson manifolds play a fundamental role in Hamiltonian dynamics, where they serve as phase spaces. They also arise naturally in other mathematical problems, and form a bridge from the "commutative world" to the "noncommutative world". The aim of this book is twofold: On the one hand, it gives a quick, selfcontained introduction to Poisson geometry and related subjects, including singular foliations, Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids. On the other hand, it presents a comprehensive treatment of the normal form problem in Poisson geometry. Even when it comes to classical results, the book gives new insights. It contains results obtained over the past 10 years which are not available in other books.

An Introduction to the Heisenberg Group and the SubRiemannian Isoperimetric Problem

This book gives an uptodate account of progress on Pansu's celebrated problem on the subRiemannian isoperimetric profile of the Heisenberg group. It also serves as an introduction to the general field of subRiemannian geometric analysis. It develops the methods and tools of subRiemannian differential geometry, nonsmooth analysis, and geometric measure theory suitable for attacks on Pansu's problem.

Compactifying Moduli Spaces

This book focusses on a large class of objects in moduli theory and provides different perspectives from which compactifications of moduli spaces may be investigated. Three contributions give an insight on particular aspects of moduli problems. In the first of them, various ways to construct and compactify moduli spaces are presented. In the second, some questions on the boundary of moduli spaces of surfaces are addressed. Finally, the theory of stable quotients is explained, which yields meaningful compactifications of moduli spaces of maps. Both advanced graduate students and researchers in algebraic geometry will find this book a valuable read.

This book gives a thorough and self contained presentation of H¹, its known isomorphic invariants and a complete classification of H¹ on spaces of homogeneous type. The necessary background is developed from scratch. This includes a detailed discussion of the Haar system, together with the operators that can be built from it. Complete proofs are given for the classical martingale inequalities, and for large deviation inequalities. Complex interpolation is treated. Througout, special attention is given to the combinatorial methods developed in the field. An entire chapter is devoted to study the combinatorics of coloured dyadic Intervals.

An enormous array of problems encountered by scientists and engineers are based on the design of mathematical models using many different types of ordinary differential, partial differential, integral, and integrodifferential equations. Accordingly, the solutions of these equations are of great interest to practitioners and to science in general. Presenting a wealth of cuttingedge research by a diverse group of experts in the field, Integral Methods in Science and Engineering: Computational and Analytic Aspects gives a vivid picture of both the development of theoretical integral techniques and their use in specific science and engineering problems.This book will be valuable for researchers in applied mathematics, physics, and mechanical and electrical engineering. It will likewise be a useful study guide for graduate students in these disciplines, and for various other professionals who use integration as an essential technique in their work.

Over the course of a scientific career spanning more than fifty years, Alex Grossmann (19302019) made many important contributions to a wide range of areas including, among others, mathematics, numerical analysis, physics, genetics, and biology. His lasting influence can be seen not only in his research and numerous publications, but also through the relationships he cultivated with his collaborators and students. This edited volume features chapters written by some of these colleagues, as well as researchers whom Grossmann's work and way of thinking has impacted in a decisive way. Reflecting the diversity of his interests and their interdisciplinary nature, these chapters explore a variety of current topics in quantum mechanics, elementary particles, and theoretical physics; wavelets and mathematical analysis; and genomics and biology. A scientific biography of Grossmann, along with a more personal biography written by his son, serve as an introduction. Also included are the introduction to his PhD thesis and an unpublished paper coauthored by him. Researchers working in any of the fields listed above will find this volume to be an insightful and informative work.
