Book DetailsTranslations of Mathematical MonographsVolume: 244; 2014; 285 ppMSC: Primary 14; 11; 37
The main goal of this book is to present the socalled 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 higherdimensional 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.
ReadershipGraduate students interested in Diophantine and Arakelov geometry.

Table of Contents

Preliminaries

Geometry of numbers

Reviews

Compared to the earlier books on Arakelov geometry, the current monograph is much more uptodate, detailed, comprehensive, and selfcontained. 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 seventyeight 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 NakaiMoishezon criterion or the arithmetic Bogomolov inequality. This is a timely monograph that should appeal to researchers in this important area of mathematics.
