It consists of lectures on topics in classical algebraic geometry, including the basic properties of projective algebraic varieties, linear systems of hypersurfaces, algebraic curves with special emphasis on rational curves , linear series on algebraic curves, Cremona transformations, rational surfaces, and notable examples of special varieties like the Segre, Grassmann, and Veronese varieties.

An integral part and special feature of the presentation is the inclusion of many exercises, not easy to find in the literature and almost all with complete solutions. The text is aimed at students of the last two years of an undergraduate program in mathematics. It contains some rather advanced topics suitable for specialized courses on the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level, as well as interesting topics for a senior thesis.

The prerequisites have been deliberately limited to basic elements of projective geometry and abstract algebra.

Based on a series of lectures at Princeton University and written in an informal yet lucid style, this book is aimed at readers who are interested in both the historical roots of the modern methods and in a simple and transparent proof of this important theorem. Recent Progress of Algebraic Geometry in Japan. Book Henry F. De Francesco. In preparing this monograph I had three objectives.

First, I wanted to introduce the reader to some topics in mathematics that seldom receive coverage in typical high school and college math programs. The topics include axioms, sets, logic, truth tables and plausible reasoning. In the sections on logic and plausible reasoning, I wanted the reader to see how to transition from formal mathematical logic to plausible logic when analyzing the reliability of a source and the credibility of its information content.

Readers whose formal education did not cover these topics were not given the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to compete successfully in the world of finance, business and management. These readers will find the information on sets, logic, truth tables and plausible reasoning especially useful.

Included are examples that show how the new analysis skills can help analysts draw conclusions and make important decisions from subjective information supplied by less than reliable sources. Second, I wanted the reader to see how subjects in the foundations area of mathematics are used to develop the real number system and its extension through transfinite cardinal numbers.

The development of the number system starts with a description of the history of numbers. Readers will find the history both interesting and understandable. The real number continuum is identified as consisting of seven sets of numbers. Each set of numbers can stand alone.

The number sets include the simple to understand natural numbers to the more abstract transcendental numbers. Each set is defined and included in a vocabulary consisting of the natural numbers N, integers Z, the rational numbers F, the algebraic numbers A, transcendental numbers T, irrational numbers I, and real numbers R. Venn diagrams are used to explain the relationships existing among the seven sets. The relationships allow the reader to understand the role played by sets and logic in the development of the number system.

Included In the development of the real number system are examples of base2 numbers and the algorithms used to convert between base 2 and base 10 numbers. Power Sets are introduced to show how the size of sets can be increased exponentially beyond the cardinal numbers N0 and c.

Finally, through exponentiation, cardinal numbers are generated beyond the N0. Valery Alexeev. This book is devoted to recent progress in the study of curves and abelian varieties. It discusses both classical aspects of this deep and beautiful subject as well as two important new developments, tropical geometry and the theory of log schemes. Geometry of Algebraic Curves: Volume 1. In recent years there has been enormous activity in the theory of algebraic curves.

Many long-standing problems have been solved using the general techniques developed in algebraic geometry during the 's and 's. Additionally, unexpected and deep connections between algebraic curves and differential equations have been uncovered, and these in turn shed light on other classical problems in curve theory. It seems fair to say that the theory of algebraic curves looks completely different now from how it appeared 15 years ago; in particular, our current state of knowledge repre sents a significant advance beyond the legacy left by the classical geometers such as Noether, Castelnuovo, Enriques, and Severi.

These books give a presentation of one of the central areas of this recent activity; namely, the study of linear series on both a fixed curve Volume I and on a variable curve Volume II. Our goal is to give a comprehensive and self-contained account of the extrinsic geometry of algebraic curves, which in our opinion constitutes the main geometric core of the recent advances in curve theory. Along the way we shall, of course, discuss appli cations of the theory of linear series to a number of classical topics e.
