Shiing-Shen Chern was an editor of our journal Results in Mathematics from 1984 to 2004, the year he passed away at Tianjin. This article honors one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century, in particular remembering his studies at Hamburg University during the years 1934–1936. This period strongly influenced his mathematical work and was decisive for his later career. We survey the situation of the Department of Mathematics there, Chern’s studies, his visits to Germany in later…

Notes on Chern’s Affine Bernstein Conjecture

There were two famous conjectures on complete affine maximal surfaces, one due to Calabi, the other to Chern. Both were solved with different methods about one decade ago by studying the associated

Locally strongly convex affine hypersurfaces with parallel cubic form

We give a complete classification of locally strongly convex affine hypersurfaces ofR n+1 with parallel cubic form with respect to the Levi-Civita connection of the affine Berwald-Blaschke metric. It

Lorentzian Affine Hypersurfaces with Parallel Cubic Form

We study Lorentzian affine hypersurfaces of $${\mathbb{R}^{n+1}}$$ having parallel cubic form with respect to the Levi-Civita connection of the affine Berwald-Blaschke metric. As main result, we
