By Alexander Polishchuk
This ebook is a latest therapy of the idea of theta features within the context of algebraic geometry. the newness of its technique lies within the systematic use of the Fourier-Mukai rework. Alexander Polishchuk starts off through discussing the classical conception of theta features from the point of view of the illustration thought of the Heisenberg team (in which the standard Fourier rework performs the famous role). He then indicates that during the algebraic method of this thought (originally because of Mumford) the Fourier-Mukai rework can usually be used to simplify the present proofs or to supply thoroughly new proofs of many vital theorems. This incisive quantity is for graduate scholars and researchers with robust curiosity in algebraic geometry.

This new-in-paperback version presents a basic creation to algebraic and mathematics geometry, beginning with the speculation of schemes, by way of functions to mathematics surfaces and to the idea of relief of algebraic curves. the 1st half introduces simple gadgets akin to schemes, morphisms, base swap, neighborhood homes (normality, regularity, Zariski's major Theorem).
Contents and therapy are clean and extremely various from the normal remedies offers an absolutely optimistic model of what it capacity to do algebra The exposition is not just transparent, it's pleasant, philosophical, and thoughtful even to the main naive or green reader
First textbook-level account of simple examples and strategies during this quarter. appropriate for self-study by means of 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 profitable Springer writer.
Within the library at Trinity university, Cambridge in 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania kingdom collage came across a sheaf of pages within the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. quickly distinctive as "Ramanujan’s misplaced Notebook," it comprises significant fabric on mock theta services and surely dates from the final 12 months of Ramanujan’s lifestyles.
