Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 712; 2018; 355 ppMSC: Primary 13; 14; 32; 53
This volume contains the proceedings of the conference Local and Global Methods in Algebraic Geometry, held from May 12–15, 2016, at the University of Illinois at Chicago, in honor of Lawrence Ein's 60th birthday.
The articles cover a broad range of topics in algebraic geometry and related fields, including birational geometry and moduli theory, analytic and positive characteristic methods, geometry of surfaces, singularity theory, hyperKähler geometry, rational points, and rational curves.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry and related fields.
