Equivariant Morse Theory and the Yang-Mills Equation on Riemann Surfaces
It is a great pleasure to address this symposium in honor of my dear friend, teacher, and collaborator. I first met Chern in 1950, when he dropped in to visit Princeton for just one day and I sat near him at lunch. I don’t suppose that you remember this occasion, my dear friend, though I am sure I contrived to attract your attention by some impertinence or other. For I was immediately captivated by what you said and how you said it.
