A publication of the Mathematical Society of Japan

This volume contains four papers written by participants of the international
conference on Higher Dimensional Algebraic Varieties held at the Research
Institute of Mathematical Sciences (RIMS) at Kyoto University (Japan). Rather
than an ordinary proceedings of the conference, the editors have compiled a selection of independent, full expositions on topics of fundamental
importance in algebraic geometry: moduli spaces of abelian surfaces, rational
curves on algebraic varieties, 3-dimensional flips, and the theory of elliptic
fibrations.

The authors—including a Fields medalist and the founder of fundamental
results in algebraic geometry—discuss the topics fully, giving complete
proofs of new results, technical preparations, and an historical overview. The
book is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested
in algebraic geometry.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.
