By Maria R. Gonzalez-Dorrego

This monograph reviews the geometry of a Kummer floor in ${\mathbb P}^3_k$ and of its minimum desingularization, that's a K3 floor (here $k$ is an algebraically closed box of attribute assorted from 2). This Kummer floor is a quartic floor with 16 nodes as its in basic terms singularities. those nodes supply upward push to a configuration of 16 issues and 16 planes in ${\mathbb P}^3$ such that every airplane comprises precisely six issues and every aspect belongs to precisely six planes (this is termed a '(16,6) configuration').A Kummer floor is uniquely made up our minds by means of its set of nodes. Gonzalez-Dorrego classifies (16,6) configurations and reviews their manifold symmetries and the underlying questions about finite subgroups of $PGL_4(k)$. She makes use of this knowledge to offer a whole class of Kummer surfaces with specific equations and specific descriptions in their singularities. moreover, the attractive connections to the idea of K3 surfaces and abelian types are studied.

**A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology (Chicago Lectures in Mathematics Series)**

Algebraic topology is a simple a part of glossy arithmetic, and a few wisdom of this quarter is quintessential for any complex paintings when it comes to geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This e-book offers a close remedy of algebraic topology either for academics of the topic and for complicated graduate scholars in arithmetic both focusing on this zone or carrying on with directly to different fields.

First textbook-level account of uncomplicated examples and methods during this zone. appropriate for self-study via a reader who is aware a bit commutative algebra and algebraic geometry already. David Eisenbud is a widely known mathematician and present president of the yankee Mathematical Society, in addition to a profitable Springer writer.

**The Geometry of Schemes (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)**

Grothendieck’s attractive thought of schemes permeates smooth algebraic geometry and underlies its purposes to quantity conception, physics, and utilized arithmetic. this easy account of that thought emphasizes and explains the common geometric ideas in the back of the definitions. within the ebook, recommendations are illustrated with primary examples, and particular calculations convey how the structures of scheme conception are performed in perform.

This vintage textual content, written by way of one of many top-rated mathematicians of the 20 th century, is now on hand in a budget friendly paperback version. Exposition is based at the foundations of affine geometry, the geometry of quadratic varieties, and the constitution of the final linear crew. Context is broadened by means of the inclusion of projective and symplectic geometry and the constitution of symplectic and orthogonal teams.
