Is there an English translation of Hirzebruch's 1958 ICM lecture note:


Thank you very much!

At least the title means "complex manifolds"... but you probably know it since you tagged it :-) – Jérémy Blanc Mar 29 '14 at 21:22
Google translate will get you quite far. For example, the opening paragraph "Es soll einerseits über Resultate von Münor über fast-komplexe Mannigfaltigkeiten berichtet werden und andererseits über die neue Formulierung des Satzes von Riemann-Roch für algebraische Mannigfaltigkeiten beliebiger Dimension durch Grothendieck." is rendered by Google as "It is on the one hand on results of Münor almost-complex Multiplicities are reported , and the other, on the new Formulation of the theorem of Riemann-Roch for algebraic manifolds of arbitrary dimension by Grothendieck." Clear enough, I think. – Carlo Beenakker Mar 29 '14 at 23:23
I apologize, but of course it says "Resultate von Milnor" and not Münor. Milnor, J. W. On the cobordisme ring Q.*, and a complex analogue. – Dietrich Burde Mar 30 '14 at 13:20
