The first part contains surveys of a foundational nature, including an introduction to Berkovich analytic spaces by M. Temkin, and to étale cohomology by A. Ducros, as well as a short note by C. Favre on the topology of some Berkovich spaces. The second part focuses on applications to geometry. A second text by A. Ducros contains a new proof of the fact that the higher direct images of a coherent sheaf under a proper map are coherent, and B. Rémy, A. Thuillier and A. Werner provide an overview of their work on the compactification of Bruhat-Tits buildings using Berkovich analytic geometry. The third and final part explores the relationship between non-archimedean geometry and dynamics. A contribution by M. Jonsson contains a thorough discussion of non-archimedean dynamical systems in dimension 1 and 2. Finally a survey by J.-P. Otal gives an account of Morgan-Shalen's theory of compactification of character varieties. This book will provide the reader with enough material on the basic concepts and constructions related to Berkovich spaces to move on to more advanced research articles on the subject. We also hope that the applications presented here will inspire the reader to discover new settings where these beautiful and intricate objects might arise 0aGeometry, Analytic 0aTopology1 aDucros, Antoineeauthor4http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/aut07396501 aFavre, Charleseauthor4http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/aut04788961 aNicaise, Johanneseauthor4http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/aut072107508aPrinted edition:z978331911028840uhttp://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-319-11029-5zAn electronic book accessible through the World Wide Web a.b14258286b14-07-16c14-07-16 ab1425828 cE-bookg1lle013o-pE0,00q-rnsot0u0v0w0x0y.i15728365z14-07-16 aBerkovich spaces and applications91465253 aUNISALENTO ale013b14-07-16cmd@e-fenggsz h0i0
