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.

In addition to original research articles, this book contains three
surveys devoted to singularities of theta divisors, of compactified
Jacobians of singular curves, and of “strange duality”
among moduli spaces of vector bundles on algebraic
varieties.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry.
