In Tribute: Shiing-Shen Chern

Springer celebrates the centennial of the birth of author and editor Shiing-Shen Chern (October 26, 1911 – December 3, 2004), cited as being one of the greatest geometers of the 20th century.

In honor of the Chern Centennial Conference and observance of the centennial, we've organized a list of works written by, contributed to and inspired by Chern.

The Chern Centennial Conference: 

From Oct 24, 2011 to Nov 4, 2011, the Mathematical Science Research Institute (MSRI) and Chern Institute of Mathematics (CIM), with participation from board members from the S. S. Chern Foundation for Mathematical Research, will jointly host the Chern Centennial Conference.
More information on the conference can be found through the links featured on the right hand side of the page.
