In this volume are gathered eighteen talks given by prominent specialists at the C.N.R.S.-N.S.F. Seminar “The mathematical heritage of Élie Cartan” held in June 1984 in Lyon (France). Recent developments on topics originating in Élie Cartan’s work such as Systems of Partial Differential Equations, Representations of Lie Groups, Riemannian and Conformal Geometries, General Relativity and Symmetric Spaces are presented.
The articles of this volume will be reviewed individually under the abbreviation “Élie Cartan et les mathématiques d’aujourd’hui, The mathematical heritage of Elie Cartan, Semin. Lyon 1984, Astérisque, No.Hors Sér.”.
