#### 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...

#### Chow Rings, Decomposition of the Diagonal, and the Topology of Families (AM-187)

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 75.00In this book, Claire Voisin provides an introduction to algebraic cycles on complex algebraic varieties, to the major conjectures relating them to cohomology, and even more precisely to Hodge structures on cohomology. The volume is intended for both students and researchers, and not only presents a survey of the geometric methods developed in the... more...

#### Real Algebraic Geometry

Springer 2013; US$ 39.95This book is concerned with one of the most fundamental questions of mathematics: the relationship between algebraic formulas and geometric images.At one of the first international mathematical congresses (in Paris in 1900), Hilbert stated a special case of this question in the form of his 16th problem (from his list of 23 problems left over from the... more...

#### Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra

Springer 2013; US$ 89.95Algebraic geometry is a fascinating branch of mathematics that combines methods from both, algebra and geometry. It transcends the limited scope of pure algebra by means of geometric construction principles. Moreover, Grothendieck’s schemes invented in the late 1950s allowed the application of algebraic-geometric methods in fields that formerly... more...

#### Birational Geometry, Rational Curves, and Arithmetic

Springer 2013; US$ 129.00¿¿¿¿This book features recent developments in a rapidly growing area at the interface of higher-dimensional birational geometry and arithmetic geometry. It focuses on the geometry of spaces of rational curves, with an emphasis on applications to arithmetic questions. Classically, arithmetic is the study of rational or... more...

Aimed at students... more...

#### New Foundations in Mathematics

Springer 2012; US$ 79.95The first book of its kind, New Foundations in Mathematics: The Geometric Concept of Number uses geometric algebra to present an innovative approach to elementary and advanced mathematics. Geometric algebra offers a simple and robust means of expressing a wide range of ideas in mathematics, physics, and engineering. In particular, geometric algebra... more...

#### Lecture Notes on O-Minimal Structures and Real Analytic Geometry

Springer 2012; US$ 109.00aiThis volume was produced in conjunction with the Thematic Program in o-Minimal Structures and Real Analytic Geometry, held from January to June of 2009 at the Fields Institute. Five of the six contributions consist of notes from graduate courses associated with the program: Felipe Cano on a new proof of resolution of singularities for planar analytic... more...

#### Automorphic Forms

Springer 2012; US$ 69.95Automorphic forms are an important complex analytic tool in number theory and modern arithmetic geometry. They played for example a vital role in Andrew Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. This text provides a concise introduction to the world of automorphic forms using two approaches: the classic elementary theory and the modern point... more...
