This proceedings contains a collection of selected, peerreviewed contributions from the 4th International Workshop "Differential Geometric Structures and Applications" held in Haifa, Israel from May 1013, 2023. The papers included in this volume showcase the latest advancements in modern geometry and interdisciplinary applications in fields ranging from mathematical physics to biology.Since 2008, this workshop series has provided a platform for researchers in pure and applied mathematics, including students, to engage in discussions and explore the frontiers of modern geometry. Previous workshops in the series have focused on topics such as "Reconstruction of Geometrical Objects Using Symbolic Computations" (2008), "Geometry and Symbolic Computations" (2013), and "Geometric Structures and Interdisciplinary Applications" (2018).

This volume has been divided into two parts: Geometry and Applications. The geometry portion of the book relates primarily to geometric flows, laminations, integral formulae, geometry of vector fields on Lie groups and osculation; the articles in the applications portion concern some particular problems of the theory of dynamical systems, including mathematical problems of liquid flows and a study of cycles for nondynamical systems.This Work is based on the second international workshop entitled "Geometry and Symbolic Computations," held on May 1518, 2013 at the University of Haifa and is dedicated to modeling (using symbolic calculations) in differential geometry and its applications in fields such as computer science, tomography and mechanics. It is intended to create a forum for students and researchers in pure and applied geometry to promote discussion of modern stateoftheart in geometric modeling using symbolic programs such as MapleTM and Mathematica® , as well as presentation of new results.

Extrinsic geometry describes properties of foliations on Riemannian manifolds which can be expressed in terms of the second fundamental form of the leaves. The authors of Topics in Extrinsic Geometry of CodimensionOne Foliations achieve a technical tour de force, which will lead to important geometric results. The Integral Formulae, introduced in chapter 1, is a useful for problems such as: prescribing higher mean curvatures of foliations, minimizing volume and energy defined for vector or plane fields on manifolds, and existence of foliations whose leaves enjoy given geometric properties. The Integral Formulae steams from a Reeb formula, for foliations on space forms which generalize the classical ones. For a special auxiliary functions the formulae involve the Newton transformations of the Weingarten operator. The central topic of this book is Extrinsic Geometric Flow (EGF) on foliated manifolds, which may be a tool for prescribing extrinsic geometric properties of foliations. To develop EGF, one needs Variational Formulae, revealed in chapter 2, which expresses a change in different extrinsic geometric quantities of a fixed foliation under leafwise variation of the Riemannian Structure of the ambient manifold. Chapter 3 defines a general notion of EGF and studies the evolution of Riemannian metrics along the trajectories of this flow(e.g., describes the shorttime existence and uniqueness theory and estimate the maximal existence time).Some special solutions (called Extrinsic Geometric Solutions) of EGF are presented and are of great interest, since they provide Riemannian Structures with very particular geometry of the leaves. This work is aimed at those who have an interest in the differential geometry of submanifolds and foliations of Riemannian manifolds.

Extrinsic Geometry of Foliations

This book is devoted to geometric problems of foliation theory, in particular those related to extrinsic geometry, modern branch of Riemannian Geometry. The concept of mixed curvature is central to the discussion, and a version of the deep problem of the Ricci curvature for the case of mixed curvature of foliations is examined. The book is divided into five chapters that deal with integral and variation formulas and curvature and dynamics of foliations. Different approaches and methods (local and global, regular and singular) in solving the problems are described using integral and variation formulas, extrinsic geometric flows, generalizations of the Ricci and scalar curvatures, pseudoRiemannian and metricaffine geometries, and 'computable' Finsler metrics.The book presents the state of the art in geometric and analytical theory of foliations as a continuation of the authors' lifelong work in extrinsic geometry. It is designed for newcomers to the field as well as experienced geometers working in Riemannian geometry, foliation theory, differential topology, and a wide range of researchers in differential equations and their applications. It may also be a useful supplement to postgraduate level work and can inspire new interesting topics to explore.
