ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of noncommutative geometric means. Of the different means of geometric proportions defined by the Greeks, the arithmetic, geometric, and harmonic means are the best-known ones. It has been the custom of mathematicians to perform their operations either on numbers or on geometric figures. The geometric mean combines the operations of multiplication and square roots, out of the most familiar means, which is explained further by the author.

    We investigate the geometric interpretation of quantized Nambu-Poisson structures in terms of noncommutative geometries. We describe an extension of the usual axioms of quantization in which classical Nambu-Poisson structures are translated to n-Lie algebras at quantum level. We demonstrate that...

    We give a survey of selected topics in noncommutative geometry, with some emphasis on those directly related to physics, including our recent work with Dirk Kreimer on renormalization and the Riemann-Hilbert problem. We discuss at length two issues. The first is the relevance of the paradigm of...
