Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 162; 1994; 410 ppMSC: Primary 14;
This volume contains the proceedings of the Algebraic Geometry Conference on Classification of Algebraic Varieties, held in May 1992 at the University of L'Aquila in Italy. The papers discuss a wide variety of problems that illustrate interactions between algebraic geometry and other branches of mathematics. Among the topics covered are algebraic curve theory, algebraic surface theory, the theory of minimal models, braid groups and the topology of algebraic varieties, toric varieties, CalabiYau threefolds, enumerative formulas, and generalizations of Kähler differential geometry. In addition to algebraic geometers, theoretical physicists in some areas will find this book useful. The book is also suitable for an advanced graduate course in algebraic geometry, as it provides an overview of some areas of current research.
ReadershipAdvanced graduate students in algebraic geometry, algebraic geometers, and theoretical physicists.
