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

MEDIA REVIEWS

Aus den Rezensionen:

"Es geht um differentialgeometrische Fragestellungen im Falle von Heisenberggruppen und verwandten Raumen ... liefert dies Modelle fur eingeschrankte Bewegungsmoeglichkeiten ... gibt eine systematische Einfuhrung zu den mathematischen Aspekten der Theorie, beschreibt einige Anwendungen und fuhrt weiter zu aktuellen Forschungsthemen ... Eine umfangreiche Bibliographie liefert weitere Informationen." (V. LOSERT, in: Monatshefte fur Mathematik, January/2010, Vol. 159, Issue 1-2, S. 212)
