#### Cohomological and Geometric Approaches to Rationality Problems

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 151.49Rationality problems link algebra to geometry, and the difficulties involved depend on the transcendence degree of $K$ over $k$, or geometrically, on the dimension of the variety. A major success in 19th century algebraic geometry was a complete solution of the rationality problem in dimensions one and two over algebraically closed ground fields of... more...

#### Liaison, Schottky Problem and Invariant Theory
