Benson Farb is professor of mathematics at the University of Chicago. He is the author of Problems on Mapping Class Groups and Related Topics and coauthor of Noncommutative Algebra. David Fisher is professor of mathematics at Indiana University.
"There is no better way to pay tribute to Robert J. Zimmer's deep and broad impact on mathematics than to assemble a selection of gems written by top experts from the fields that he influenced over the years and to this day. The texts collected by Farb and Fisher range from short masterpieces to authoritative surveys that will surely become classical references. Geometry, Rigidity, and Group Actions will appeal to a wide range of mathematicians."--Nicolas Monod, cole Polytechnique F d rale de Lausanne "For those interested in learning about the subject of large group actions, sometimes described as 'Zimmer's program, ' this is a key book to own, and it fits well alongside the earlier rigidity books by Zimmer, Margulis, Feres, and Witte Morris. This is an extensive area of mathematics, with many subareas of research, and for those already familiar with parts of the program, this book will also prove invaluable as a guide to many of the latest developments." --Scot Adams, University of Minnesota
