By Arnaud Beauville
The class of algebraic surfaces is an complex and interesting department of arithmetic, built over greater than a century and nonetheless an lively sector of analysis this day. during this ebook, Professor Beauville offers a lucid and concise account of the topic, expressed easily within the language of contemporary topology and sheaf thought, and available to any budding geometer. A bankruptcy on initial fabric guarantees that this quantity is self-contained whereas the routines prevail either in giving the flavour of the classical topic, and in equipping the reader with the strategies wanted for learn. The booklet is aimed toward graduate scholars in geometry and topology.

Algebraic topology is a easy a part of glossy arithmetic, and a few wisdom of this region is integral for any complex paintings with regards to geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This ebook offers a close remedy of algebraic topology either for lecturers of the topic and for complex graduate scholars in arithmetic both focusing on this region or carrying on with directly to different fields.
First textbook-level account of uncomplicated examples and strategies during this quarter. appropriate for self-study via a reader who is familiar with a bit commutative algebra and algebraic geometry already. David Eisenbud is a widely known mathematician and present president of the yank Mathematical Society, in addition to a profitable Springer writer.
Grothendieck’s attractive conception of schemes permeates smooth algebraic geometry and underlies its functions to quantity thought, physics, and utilized arithmetic. this straightforward account of that conception emphasizes and explains the common geometric strategies at the back of the definitions. within the ebook, recommendations are illustrated with primary examples, and specific calculations convey how the buildings of scheme thought are performed in perform.
This vintage textual content, written by means of one of many optimal mathematicians of the twentieth century, is now on hand in a low-cost paperback version. Exposition is headquartered at the foundations of affine geometry, the geometry of quadratic kinds, and the constitution of the final linear team. Context is broadened by means of the inclusion of projective and symplectic geometry and the constitution of symplectic and orthogonal teams.
