Hodge Theory and Complex Algebraic Geometry I: Volume 1
Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics (Book 76)
The first of two volumes offering a modern introduction to Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge structure. The book starts with basic material on complex variables, complex manifolds, holomorphic vector bundles, sheaves and cohomology theory, the latter being treated in a more theoretical way than is usual in geometry. The author then proves the Kaehler identities, which leads to the hard Lefschetz$40.79
Hodge Theory and Complex Algebraic Geometry II: Volume 2
Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics (Book 77)
The 2003 second volume of this account of Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge theory starts with the topology of families of algebraic varieties. Proofs of the Lefschetz theorem on hyperplane sections, the Picard–Lefschetz study of Lefschetz pencils, and Deligne theorems on the degeneration of the Leray spectral sequence and the global invariant cycles follow. The main results of the second part are the$125.09
Research Directions in Number Theory
Association for Women in Mathematics Series (Book 2)
Covering topics in graph theory, L-functions, p-adic geometry, Galois representations, elliptic fibrations, genus 3 curves and bad reduction, harmonic analysis, symplectic groups and mould combinatorics, this volume presents a collection of papers covering a wide swath of number theory emerging from the third iteration of the international Women in Numbers conference, “Women in Numbers - Europe”$17.99
How Numbers Get Used and Abused in the Courtroom
In the wrong hands, math can be deadly. Even the simplest numbers can become powerful forces when manipulated by journalists, politicians or other public figures, but in the case of the law your liberty—and your life—can depend on the right calculation.Math on Trial tells the story of ten trials in which mathematical arguments were used—and disastrously misused—as evidence. Despite years of math$3.99
Group Theory: Selected Problems
This selection of problems in Group Theory is principally aimed at undergraduate (honours) and postgraduate students of mathematics. Excepting a few, these problems are meant only to supplement the existing ones in standard texts. The comments interspersed in the text help to put the problems in perspective with other problems and with the subject itself. The intention of the book is two-fold: to$78.29
Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles
Assuming only modest knowledge of undergraduate level math, Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles presents diverse concepts required to comprehend Wiles' extraordinary proof. Furthermore, it places these concepts in their historical context.This book can be used in introduction to mathematics theories courses and in special topics courses on Fermat's last theorem. It contains themes$69.59
Mumford-Tate Groups and Domains
Their Geometry and Arithmetic (AM-183)
Mumford-Tate groups are the fundamental symmetry groups of Hodge theory, a subject which rests at the center of contemporary complex algebraic geometry. This book is the first comprehensive exploration of Mumford-Tate groups and domains. Containing basic theory and a wealth of new views and results, it will become an essential resource for graduate students and researchers. Although Mumford-Tate$54.39
O-Minimality and Diophantine Geometry
London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series (Book 421)
This collection of articles, originating from a short course held at the University of Manchester, explores the ideas behind Pila's proof of the Andre–Oort conjecture for products of modular curves. The basic strategy has three main ingredients: the Pila–Wilkie theorem, bounds on Galois orbits, and functional transcendence results. All of these topics are covered in this volume, making it ideal$15.95
The Philosophy of Space and Time
An important landmark in the development of the empiricist conception of geometry, this book is still one of the clearest and most valuable expositions of the crisis in physical science and mathematics occasioned by the advent of the non-Euclidean geometries. With unusual depth and clarity, it covers the problem of the foundations of geometry, the theory of time, the theory and consequences of
