In his study of Dirac structures, a notion which includes both Poisson structures and closed 2-forms, T. Courant introduced a bracket on the direct sum of vector fields and 1-forms. This bracket does not satisfy the Jacobi identity except on certain subspaces. In this paper we systematize the properties of this bracket in the definition of a Couran...

The goal of this article was the S^1-equivariant transversality-problem and the compactification-problem for the moduli spaces of (perturbed) PU(2)-monopoles. A substantially improved version entitled "Moduli spaces of PU(2)-monopoles (revised version)" which gives simpler, clearer proofs of the transversality results, has been published on arxiv i...

A supermanifold M is canonically associated to any pseudo Riemannian spin manifold (M_0,g_0). Extending the metric g_0 to a field g of bilinear forms g(p) on T_p M, p\in M_0, the pseudo Riemannian supergeometry of (M,g) is formulated as G-structure on M, where G is a supergroup with even part G_0\cong Spin(k,l); (k,l) the signature of (M_0,g_0). Ki...

We discuss the ζ-regularized determinant of elliptic boundary value problems on a line segment. Our framework is applicable for separated and non-separated boundary conditions.

We show how Ramond free neutral Fermi fields lead to a $\tau$-function theory of BKP type which describes iso-orthogonal deformations of systems of ortogonal curvilinear coordinates. We also provide a vertex operator representation for the classical Ribaucour transformation.

Hopf algebra structures on the extended q-superplane and its differential algebra are defined. An algebra of forms which are obtained from the generators of the extended q-superplane is introduced and its Hopf algebra structure is given

Lie bialgebra structures are reviewed and investigated in terms of the double Lie algebra, of Manin- and Gau{\ss}-decompositions. The standard R-matrix in a Manin decomposition then gives rise to several Poisson structures on the correponding double group, which is investigated in great detail.

This paper develops a theory of Lipschitz comparisons of hyperbolic surfaces analogous to the theory of quasi-conformal comparisons. Extremal Lipschitz maps (minimal stretch maps) and geodesics for the `Lipschitz metric' are constructed. The extremal Lipschitz constant equals the maximum ratio of lengths of measured laminations, which is attained w...
