# Residues and Duality for Projective Algebraic Varieties

Share this page
*Ernst Kunz; David A. Cox; Alicia Dickenstein*

with the assistance of and contributions by David A. Cox, Amherst College, MA, and Alicia Dickenstein, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina

This book, which grew out of lectures by E. Kunz for students with a
background in algebra and algebraic geometry, develops local and global
duality theory in the special case of (possibly singular) algebraic
varieties over algebraically closed base fields. It describes duality
and residue theorems in terms of Kähler differential forms and their
residues. The properties of residues are introduced via local
cohomology. Special emphasis is given to the relation between residues
to classical results of algebraic geometry and their generalizations.
The contribution by A. Dickenstein gives applications of residues and
duality to polynomial solutions of constant coefficient partial
differential equations and to problems in interpolation and ideal
membership. D. A. Cox explains toric residues and relates them to the
earlier text.

The book is intended as an introduction to more advanced treatments and
further applications of the subject, to which numerous bibliographical
hints are given.
