#### Topics in Cohomological Studies of Algebraic Varieties

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 109.91The articles in this volume study various cohomological aspects of algebraic varieties: - characteristic classes of singular varieties; - geometry of flag varieties; - cohomological computations for homogeneous spaces; - K-theory of algebraic varieties; - quantum cohomology and Gromov-Witten theory. The main purpose is to give comprehensive introductions... more...

#### Elliptic Curves

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 142.85The basics of the theory of elliptic curves should be known to everybody, be he (or she) a mathematician or a computer scientist. Especially everybody concerned with cryptography should know the elements of this theory. The purpose of the present textbook is to give an elementary introduction to elliptic curves. Since this branch of... more...

#### Algebraic Geometry

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 229.74The volume consists of invited refereed research papers. The contributions cover a wide spectrum in algebraic geometry, from motives theory to numerical algebraic geometry and are mainly focused on higher dimensional varieties and Minimal Model Program and surfaces of general type. A part of the articles grew out a Conference in memory... more...

#### Geometric Aspects of Dwork Theory

De Gruyter 2004; US$ 504.56This two-volume book collects the lectures given during the three months cycle of lectures held in Northern Italy between May and July of 2001 to commemorate Professor Bernard Dwork (1923 - 1998). It presents a wide-ranging overview of some of the most active areas of contemporary research in arithmetic algebraic geometry, with special... more...

#### Global Aspects of Complex Geometry

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 93.43This collection of surveys present an overview of recent developments in Complex Geometry. Topics range from curve and surface theory through special varieties in higher dimensions, moduli theory, Kähler geometry, and group actions to Hodge theory and characteristic p-geometry. Written by established experts this book will be a must for mathematicians... more...

#### Standard Monomial Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 131.90Schubert varieties lie at the cross roads of algebraic geometry, combinatorics, commutative algebra, and representation theory. They are an important class of subvarieties of flag varieties, interesting in their own right, and providing an inductive tool for studying flag varieties. The literature on them is vast, for they are ubiquitous?they have... more...

#### Algebraic Cycles, Sheaves, Shtukas, and Moduli

Birkhäuser Basel 2008; US$ 109.91The articles in this volume are devoted to: - moduli of coherent sheaves; - principal bundles and sheaves and their moduli; - new insights into Geometric Invariant Theory; - stacks of shtukas and their compactifications; - algebraic cycles vs. commutative algebra; - Thom polynomials of singularities; - zero schemes of sections of vector bundles.... more...

#### Families of Curves and the Origins of Partial Differentiation

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 255.00This book provides a detailed description of the main episodes in the emergence of partial differentiation during the period 1690-1740. It argues that the development of this concept - to a considerable degree of perfection - took place almost exclusively in problems concerning families of curves. Thus, the book shows the origins of the ideas and techniques... more...
