    Graduate Studies in Mathematics
    Volume: 91996; 397 pp
    MSC: Primary 11; 14; Secondary 12; 13;

    In this volume the author gives a unified presentation of some of the basic tools and concepts in number theory, commutative algebra, and algebraic geometry, and for the first time in a book at this level, brings out the deep analogies between them. The geometric viewpoint is stressed throughout the book. Extensive examples are given to illustrate each new concept, and many interesting exercises are given at the end of each chapter. Most of the important results in the one-dimensional case are proved, including Bombieri's proof of the Riemann Hypothesis for curves over a finite field. While the book is not intended to be an introduction to schemes, the author indicates how many of the geometric notions introduced in the book relate to schemes which will aid the reader who goes to the next level of this rich subject.

    • Extremely carefully written, masterfully thought out, and skillfully arranged introduction ... to the arithmetic of algebraic curves, on the one hand, and to the algebro-geometric aspects of number theory, on the other hand. Detailed discussions, full proofs, much effort at thorough motivations, a wealth of illustrating examples, numerous related exercises and problems, hints for further reading, and a rich bibliography characterize this text as an excellent guide for beginners in arithmetic geometry, just as an interesting reference and methodical inspiration for teachers of the subject ... a highly welcome addition to the existing literature.

    • In order to come straight to the point: this book represents an excellent introduction to Algebraic Number Theory and to Algebraic Curves as well by viewing both theories as part of Commutative Algebra ... all proof are given in full detail and its concept as well thought-out.
