Our wisdom of items of algebraic geometry similar to moduli of curves, (real) Schubert sessions, primary teams of enhances of hyperplane preparations, toric forms, and edition of Hodge buildings, has been stronger lately by way of rules and structures of quantum box thought, corresponding to reflect symmetry, Gromov-Witten invariants, quantum cohomology, and gravitational descendants. those are many of the subject matters of this refereed selection of papers, which grew out of the certain consultation, ""Enumerative Geometry in Physics,"" held on the AMS assembly in Lowell, MA, April 2000. This consultation introduced jointly mathematicians and physicists who pronounced at the newest effects and open questions; all of the abstracts are incorporated as an Appendix, and likewise incorporated are papers by way of a few who couldn't attend. the gathering offers an outline of cutting-edge instruments, hyperlinks that attach classical and glossy difficulties, and the newest wisdom to be had.

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

Algebraic topology is a simple a part of smooth arithmetic, and a few wisdom of this sector is quintessential for any complex paintings on the subject of geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This e-book offers an in depth therapy of algebraic topology either for lecturers of the topic and for complicated graduate scholars in arithmetic both focusing on this quarter or carrying on with directly to different fields.

First textbook-level account of uncomplicated examples and methods during this region. appropriate for self-study by means of a reader who understands a bit commutative algebra and algebraic geometry already. David Eisenbud is a well known mathematician and present president of the yankee Mathematical Society, in addition to a winning Springer writer.

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

Grothendieck’s appealing idea of schemes permeates sleek algebraic geometry and underlies its purposes to quantity concept, physics, and utilized arithmetic. this easy account of that thought emphasizes and explains the common geometric suggestions at the back of the definitions. within the ebook, options are illustrated with primary examples, and specific calculations convey how the buildings of scheme conception are conducted in perform.

This vintage textual content, written via one of many most effective mathematicians of the 20 th century, is now to be had in a low-cost paperback variation. 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.
