By David Mumford
"The ebook less than evaluation is a reprint of Mumford's well-known Harvard lecture notes, generic via the few prior generations of algebraic geometers. Springer-Verlag has performed the mathematical neighborhood a provider via making those notes to be had as soon as again.... The casual sort and frequency of examples make the ebook a good text."

Algebraic topology is a uncomplicated a part of glossy arithmetic, and a few wisdom of this sector is fundamental for any complicated paintings on the subject of geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This booklet offers an in depth therapy of algebraic topology either for academics 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 methods during this zone. compatible 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 yankee Mathematical Society, in addition to a winning Springer writer.
Grothendieck’s attractive thought of schemes permeates sleek algebraic geometry and underlies its functions to quantity idea, physics, and utilized arithmetic. this straightforward account of that concept emphasizes and explains the common geometric techniques at the back of the definitions. within the publication, thoughts are illustrated with primary examples, and specific calculations exhibit how the structures of scheme conception are performed in perform.
This vintage textual content, written by means of one of many most desirable mathematicians of the twentieth century, is now on hand in a comparatively cheap paperback version. Exposition is situated at the foundations of affine geometry, the geometry of quadratic kinds, and the constitution of the final linear crew. Context is broadened by way of the inclusion of projective and symplectic geometry and the constitution of symplectic and orthogonal teams.
