By Olivier Debarre

The type thought of algebraic forms is the point of interest of this ebook. This very lively quarter of analysis remains to be constructing, yet an grand volume of data has amassed over the last two decades. The authors objective is to supply an simply obtainable creation to the topic. The ebook starts off with preparatory and conventional definitions and effects, then strikes directly to talk about a variety of facets of the geometry of delicate projective forms with many rational curves, and finishes in taking the 1st steps in the direction of Moris minimum version software of class of algebraic types via proving the cone and contraction theorems. The ebook is well-organized and the writer has saved the variety of suggestions which are used yet no longer proved to a minimal to supply a in most cases self-contained advent.
