**Edinburgh Lectures on Geometry, Analysis and Physics**

by Michael Atiyah

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 41

**Description**:

These lecture notes are based on a set of six lectures that I gave in Edinburgh in 2008/2009 and they cover some topics in the interface between Geometry and Physics. They involve some unsolved problems and conjectures and I hope they may stimulate readers to investigate them.

**The Geometrization of Physics**

by

**Richard S. Palais**-

**University of California at Irvine**

The major goal of these notes is to develop an observation that not only can gauge fields of the Yang-Mills type be unified with the Einstein model of gravitation, but also that when this unification is made they are described by pure geometry.
