# Arithmetic Noncommutative Geometry

Share this page
*Matilde Marcolli*

Arithmetic noncommutative geometry uses ideas and tools from
noncommutative geometry to address questions in a new way and to
reinterpret results and constructions from number theory and
arithmetic algebraic geometry. This general philosophy is applied to
the geometry and arithmetic of modular curves and to the fibers at
Archimedean places of arithmetic surfaces and varieties.

Noncommutative geometry can be expected to say something about
topics of arithmetic interest because it provides the right framework
for which the tools of geometry continue to make sense on spaces that
are very singular and apparently very far from the world of algebraic
varieties. This provides a way of refining the boundary structure of
certain classes of spaces that arise in the context of arithmetic
geometry.

With a foreword written by Yuri Manin and a brief introduction to
noncommutative geometry, this book offers a comprehensive account of
the cross fertilization between two important areas, noncommutative
geometry and number theory. It is suitable for graduate students and
researchers interested in these areas.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

This book succeeds in giving a beautiful overview of the rapid evolution field of arithmetic noncommutative geometry. It proves, once again, how successful it is to apply techniques developed in one branch of mathematics to problems from another branch, to find out unexpected connections, and reinterpret in a new perspective results and constructions.

-- Zentralblatt MATH

This book is written in a lively style and will be very helpful to young researchers who wish to work in the (growing) area in which number theory and noncommutative geometry interplay.
