About Misha Gromov.
It is hard work to go through the book, but it is worth the effort. Liam marked it as to-read Jun 12, To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. It is a major accomplishment of Misha Gromov to have written this exposition. Consider the story of Exercise number 1 from Gromov-Ballmann-Schroeder, which became an infamous open problem and stayed so until very recently! Sort order.

The new wave began with seminal papers by Svarc and Milnor on the growth of groups and the spectacular proof of the rigidity of lattices by Mostow. This progress was followed by the creation of the asymptotic metric theory of infinite groups by Gromov.
Metric theory has undergone a dramatic phase transition in the last decades when its focus moved from the foundations of real analysis to Riemannian geometry and algebraic topology, to the theory of infinite groups and probability theory. The new wave began with seminal papers by. Metric Structures for Riemannian and Non-Riemannian Spaces (Modern Birkhäuser Classics) 1st ed. Corr. 2nd printing 3rd printing Edition.
This distance organizes Riemannian manifolds of all possible topological types into a single connected moduli space, where convergence allows the collapse of dimension with unexpectedly rich geometry, as revealed in the work of Cheeger, Fukaya, Gromov and Perelman. Also, Gromov found metric structure within homotopy theory and thus introduced new invariants controlling combinatorial complexity of maps and spaces, such as the simplicial volume, which is responsible for degrees of maps between manifolds.
The first stages of the new developments were presented in Gromov's course in Paris, which turned into the famous "Green Book" by Lafontaine and Pansu The present English translation of that work has been enriched and expanded with new material to reflect recent progress.
