#### Liaison, Schottky Problem and Invariant Theory

Springer 2010; US$ 129.00This volume is a homage to the memory of the Spanish mathematician Federico Gaeta (1923-2007). Apart from a historical presentation of his life and interaction with the classical Italian school of algebraic geometry, the volume presents surveys and original research papers on the mathematics he studied. Specifically, it is divided into three parts:... more...

#### Principles of Algebraic Geometry

Wiley 2014; US$ 164.00A comprehensive, self-contained treatment presenting general results of the theory. Establishes a geometric intuition and a working facility with specific geometric practices. Emphasizes applications through the study of interesting examples and the development of computational tools. Coverage ranges from analytic to geometric. Treats basic techniques... more...

#### The Grothendieck Festschrift

Springer 2009; US$ 89.99This three-volume work contains articles collected on the occasion of Alexander Grothendieck's sixtieth birthday and originally published in 1990. The articles were offered as a tribute to one of the world's greatest living mathematicians. Many of the groundbreaking contributions in these volumes contain material that is now considered foundational... more...

#### Poncelet Porisms and Beyond

Springer 2011; US$ 74.95The goal of the book is to present, in a complete and comprehensive way, areas of current research interlacing around the Poncelet porism: dynamics of integrable billiards, algebraic geometry of hyperelliptic Jacobians, and classical projective geometry of pencils of quadrics. The most important results and ideas, classical as well as modern, connected... more...

#### Some Problems of Unlikely Intersections in Arithmetic and Geometry (AM-181)

Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 78.50This book considers the so-called Unlikely Intersections, a topic that embraces well-known issues, such as Lang's and Manin-Mumford's, concerning torsion points in subvarieties of tori or abelian varieties. More generally, the book considers algebraic subgroups that meet a given subvariety in a set of unlikely dimension. The book is an expansion... more...

#### Topology of Algebraic Curves

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00The book summarizes the state and new results on the topology of trigonal curves in geometrically ruled surfaces. Emphasis is placed upon various applications of the theory to related areas, most notably singularplane curves of small degree, elliptic surfaces, and Lefschetz fibrations (both complex and real), and Hurwitz equivalence of braid monodromy... more...
