#### 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...

#### Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic Curves

Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 84.99This new-in-paperback edition provides an introduction to algebraic and arithmetic geometry, starting with the theory of schemes, followed by applications to arithmetic surfaces and to the theory of reduction of algebraic curves. Clear explanations of both theory and applications, and almost 600 exercises are included in the text. - ;This new-in-paperback... more...

#### Prolegomena to a Middlebrow Arithmetic of Curves of Genus 2

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 84.00A unique insight into the topic of curves of genus 2, by two of the world's leading practitioners. more...

#### Plane Algebraic Curves

Springer 2012; US$ 99.00In a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the theory of plane algebraic curves, the authors examine this classical area of mathematics that both figured prominently in ancient Greek studies and remains a source of inspiration and a topic of research to this day. Arising from notes for a course given at the University of Bonn in Germany,... more...

#### Elementare Algebraische Geometrie

Springer 2012; US$ 29.95Dieses Buch gibt eine Einführung in die Algebraische Geometrie. Ziel ist es, die grundlegenden Begriffe und Techniken der algebraischen Geometrie darzustellen und an Hand zahlreicher Beispiele zu erläutern. Dies soll es dem Leser ermöglichen, selbständig mit weiterführenden Texten zu arbeiten. Die Sprache wird bewusst... more...

#### A Guide to the Classification Theorem for Compact Surfaces

Springer 2013; US$ 49.95This welcome boon for students of algebraic topology cuts a much-needed central path between other texts whose treatment of the classification theorem for compact surfaces is either too formalized and complex for those without detailed background knowledge, or too informal to afford students a comprehensive insight into the subject. Its dedicated,... more...

#### Complex Algebraic Curves

Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 52.00This book introduces the theory, observes the algebraic and topological properties of complex algebraic curves, and shows how they are related to complex analysis. more...

#### The Elementary Theory of Groups

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 196.00After being an open question for sixty years the Tarski conjecture was answered in the affirmative by Olga Kharlampovich and Alexei Myasnikov and independently by Zlil Sela. This book is an examination of the material on the general elementary theory of groups that is necessary to begin to understand the proofs. more...
