#### M-Solid Varieties of Algebras

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 129.00Provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the hyper-equational theory of universal algebra, offering the results on M-solid varieties of semirings and semigroups. This book aims to develop the theory of M-solid varieties as a system of mathematical discourse that is applicable in several concrete situations. more...

#### Computational Methods for Algebraic Spline Surfaces

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 149.00The papers included in this volume provide an overview of the state of the art in approximative implicitization and various related topics, including both the theoretical basis and the existing computational techniques. The novel idea of approximate implicitization has strengthened the existing link between Computer Aided Geometric Design and classical... more...

#### Elliptic Curves

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 133.00The 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 number theory is... more...

#### Algebraic Geometry

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 252.00The 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 of Paolo Francia... more...

#### Geometric Aspects of Dwork Theory

De Gruyter 2004; US$ 559.00This 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 emphasis on... more...

#### Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling

Springer 2006; US$ 149.00Algebraic Geometry provides an impressive theory targeting the understanding of geometric objects defined algebraically. Geometric Modeling uses every day, in order to solve practical and difficult problems, digital shapes based on algebraic models. This book is a collection of articles bridging these two areas. more...

#### Global Aspects of Complex Geometry

Springer 2006; US$ 119.00Present an overview of developments in Complex Geometry. This book covers topics that range from curve and surface theory through special varieties in higher dimensions, moduli theory, Kahler geometry, and group actions to Hodge theory and characteristic p-geometry. more...

#### Geometric Modeling and Algebraic Geometry

Springer 2007; US$ 159.00The two fields of Geometric Modeling and Algebraic Geometry, though closely related, are traditionally represented by two almost disjoint scientific communities. Both fields deal with objects defined by algebraic equations, but the objects are studied in different ways. This contributed book presents, in 12 chapters written by leading experts, recent... more...

#### Standard Monomial Theory

Springer 2007; US$ 169.00Schubert 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 Geometry and Number Theory

Springer 2007; US$ 229.00One of the most creative mathematicians, Vladimir Drinfeld has received the Fields Medal in 1990. This book presents a collection of invited papers by mathematicians in algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory dedicated to Drinfeld. It reflects the range of Drinfeld's own interests in algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory. more...
