By Luca Capogna,Donatella Danielli,Scott D. Pauls,Jeremy Tyson

This publication provides an up to date account of growth on Pansu's celebrated challenge at the sub-Riemannian isoperimetric profile of the Heisenberg staff. It additionally serves as an advent to the final box of sub-Riemannian geometric research. It develops the equipment and instruments of sub-Riemannian differential geometry, nonsmooth research, and geometric degree idea compatible for assaults on Pansu's problem.
