Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 397; 2006; 236 ppMSC: Primary 30; 14;
Most of the papers in this book deal with the theory of Riemann surfaces (moduli problems, automorphisms, etc.), abelian varieties, theta functions, and modular forms. Some of the papers contain surveys on the recent results in the topics of current interest to mathematicians, whereas others contain new research results.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry and complex geometry.
