This book introduces some of the main ideas of modern intersection theory, traces their origins in classical geometry and sketches a few typical applications. It requires little technical background: much of the material is accessible to graduate students in mathematics. A broad survey, the book touches on many topics, most importantly introducing a powerful new approach developed by the author and R. MacPherson. It was written from the expository lectures delivered at the NSF-supported CBMS conference at George Mason University, held June 27-July 1, 1983.The author describes the construction and computation of intersection products by means of the geometry of normal cones. In the case of properly intersecting varieties, this yields Samuel's intersection multiplicity; at the other extreme it gives the self-intersection formula in terms of a Chern class of the normal bundle; in general it produces the excess intersection formula of the author and R. MacPherson. Among the applications presented are formulas for degeneracy loci, residual intersections, and multiple point loci; dynamic interpretations of intersection products; Schubert calculus and solutions to enumerative geometry problems; and Riemann-Roch theorems.

This is a description of the underlying principles of algebraic geometry, some of its important developments in the twentieth century, and some of the problems that occupy its practitioners today. It is intended for the working or the aspiring mathematician who is unfamiliar with algebraic geometry but wishes to gain an appreciation of its foundations and its goals with a minimum of prerequisites. Few algebraic prerequisites are presumed beyond a basic course in linear algebra.

This book examines interactions of polyhedral discrete geometry and algebra. What makes this book unique is the presentation of several central results in all three areas of the exposition - from discrete geometry, to commutative algebra, and K-theory.

This is a graduate-level text on algebraic geometry that provides a quick and fully self-contained development of the fundamentals, including all commutative algebra which is used. A taste of the deeper theory is given: some topics, such as local algebra and ramification theory, are treated in depth. The book culminates with a selection of topics from the theory of algebraic curves, including the Riemann-Roch theorem, elliptic curves, the zeta function of a curve over a finite field, and the Riemann hypothesis for elliptic curves.

Singular Loci of Schubert Varieties

The study of singular loci, an important sub-discipline of Schubert varieties, lies at the crossroads of representation theory, algebraic geometry, and combinatorics. To present a clearer understanding of the subject, the authors have recreated and restructured the various theories and approaches previously available only in journal articles. The book gives a systematic presentation of a wide range of topics and presents new results with sufficient examples, as well as numerous tables -- none of which are found elsewhere in the mathematics literature.

Punctured Torus Groups and 2-Bridge Knot Groups (I)

Here is the first part of a work that provides a full account of Jorgensen's theory of punctured torus Kleinian groups and its generalization. It offers an elementary and self-contained description of Jorgensen's theory with a complete proof. Through various informative illustrations, readers are naturally led to an intuitive, synthetic grasp of the theory, which clarifies how a very simple fuchsian group evolves into complicated Kleinian groups.

Solitons in Two-Dimensional Shallow Water

Author: Yuji Kodama

Publisher: SIAM

ISBN: 1611975522

Category: Science

Page: 252

View: 6647

Web-like waves, often observed on the surface of shallow water, are examples of nonlinear waves. They are generated by nonlinear interactions among several obliquely propagating solitary waves, also known as solitons. In this book, modern mathematical tools—algebraic geometry, algebraic combinatorics, and representation theory, among others—are used to analyze these two-dimensional wave patterns. The author’s primary goal is to explain some details of the classification problem of the soliton solutions of the KP equation (or KP solitons) and their applications to shallow water waves. This book is intended for researchers and graduate students.
