By Wei-Liang Chow

This paintings comprises the amassed papers of Professor Wei-Liang Chow, an unique and flexible mathematician of the 20 th century. Professor Chow's identify has turn into a family be aware in arithmetic a result of Chow ring, Chow co-ordinates, and Chow's theorem on analytic units in projective areas. The Chow ring has many merits and is well-known in intersection thought of algebraic geometry. Chow co-ordinates were a really flexible software in lots of elements of algebraic geometry. Chow's theorem - compact analytic kind in a projective house is algebraic - is justly recognized; it indicates the shut analogy among algebraic geometry and algebraic quantity conception.

**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 zone is quintessential for any complex paintings in terms of geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This booklet offers a close remedy of algebraic topology either for lecturers of the topic and for complex graduate scholars in arithmetic both focusing on this quarter or carrying on with directly to different fields.

First textbook-level account of easy examples and methods during this sector. compatible for self-study by way 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 yank Mathematical Society, in addition to a profitable Springer writer.

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

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

This vintage textual content, written by way of one of many premier mathematicians of the 20 th century, is now to be had in a inexpensive paperback variation. Exposition is situated at the foundations of affine geometry, the geometry of quadratic types, and the constitution of the final linear staff. Context is broadened through the inclusion of projective and symplectic geometry and the constitution of symplectic and orthogonal teams.
