Arakelov GeometryShare this page
The main goal of this book is to present the
so-called birational Arakelov geometry, which can be viewed as an
arithmetic analog of the classical birational geometry, i.e., the
study of big linear series on algebraic varieties. After explaining
classical results about the geometry of numbers, the author starts
with Arakelov geometry for arithmetic curves, and continues with
Arakelov geometry of arithmetic surfaces and higher-dimensional
varieties. The book includes such fundamental results as arithmetic
Hilbert–Samuel formula, arithmetic Nakai–Moishezon criterion,
arithmetic Bogomolov inequality, the existence of small sections, the
continuity of arithmetic volume function, the Lang–Bogomolov
conjecture and so on. In addition, the author presents, with full
details, the proof of Faltings' Riemann–Roch theorem.
Prerequisites for reading this book are the basic results of algebraic geometry and the language of schemes.

Graduate students interested in Diophantine and Arakelov geometry.
Compared to the earlier books on Arakelov geometry, the current monograph is much more up-to-date, detailed, comprehensive, and self-contained. The exposition stands out of its high degree of clarity, completeness, rigor and topicality, which also makes the volume an excellent textbook on the subject for seasoned graduate students and young researchers in arithmetic algebraic geometry. The rich bibliography of seventy-eight references certainly serves as a useful guide to further reading with regard to the more recent research literature in the field.

Many important results are presented for the first time in a book, such as the arithmetic Nakai-Moishezon criterion or the arithmetic Bogomolov inequality. This is a timely monograph that should appeal to researchers in this important area of mathematics.
