A quotation for today

Viktor Vladimirovich Vagner (1908 - 1981)

For contemporary differential geometry the concept of group is quite insufficient for the examination, from an algebraic point of view, of the basic concepts of the corresponding geometrical theories. Moreover, algebraic problems arising in investigations concerning the foundations of contemporary differential geometry require the study of special algebraic systems which at present are not very seriously discussed.
