Metamathematische Methoden in der Geometrie by Wolfram Schwabhäuser, Wanda Szmielew, Alfred Tarski (auth.)

By Wolfram Schwabhäuser, Wanda Szmielew, Alfred Tarski (auth.)

Das vorliegende Buch besteht aus zwei Teilen. Teil I enthält einen axiomatischen Aufbau der euklidischen Geometrie auf Grund eines Axiomensystems von Tarski, das in einem gewissen Sinne (auch für die absolute Geometrie) gleichwertig ist mit dem Hilbertschen Axiomensystem, aber formalisiert ist in einer Sprache, die für die Betrachtungen in Teil II besonders geeignet ist. Mehrere solche Axio­ mensysteme wurden schon vor langer Zeit von Tarski veröffentlicht. Hier wird nun die Durchführung eines Aufbaus der Geometrie auf Grund eines solchen Axiomensystems - unter Benutzung von Resultaten von H. N. Gupta - allgemein zugänglich gemacht. Die vorliegende Darstel­ lung wurde vom zuerst genannten Autor allein geschrieben, aber sie beruht zum Teil auf unveröffentlichten Resultaten von Alfred Tarski und Wanda Szmielew; daher gebührt ihnen ein Teil der Autorschaft. Mehr über Entstehung und Inhalt von Teil I sowie über die Geschichte der Tarskischen Axiomensysteme wird in der Einleitung (Abschnitt I.O) gesagt. Teil II enthält metamathematische Untersuchungen und Ergebnisse über verschiedene Geometrien, used to be vielfac~ auf eine Anwendung von Methoden und Sätzen der mathematischen Logik auf Geometrien hinausläuft (vgl.

Lectures on Algebraic Geometry 1: Sheaves, Cohomology of by Guenter Harder

By Guenter Harder

This publication and the next moment quantity is an creation into sleek algebraic geometry. within the first quantity the equipment of homological algebra, idea of sheaves, and sheaf cohomology are built. those equipment are integral for contemporary algebraic geometry, yet also they are primary for different branches of arithmetic and of serious curiosity of their personal. within the final bankruptcy of quantity I those techniques are utilized to the speculation of compact Riemann surfaces. during this bankruptcy the writer makes transparent how influential the guidelines of Abel, Riemann and Jacobi have been and that a number of the smooth equipment were expected by means of them. For this moment version the textual content used to be thoroughly revised and corrected. the writer additionally extra a brief part on moduli of elliptic curves with N-level constructions. This new paragraph anticipates many of the recommendations of quantity II.

Tata Lectures on Theta I by David Mumford, C. Musili, M. Nori, E. Previato, M. Stillman

By David Mumford, C. Musili, M. Nori, E. Previato, M. Stillman

This quantity is the 1st of 3 in a sequence surveying the speculation of theta services. in response to lectures given via the writer on the Tata Institute of primary learn in Bombay, those volumes represent a scientific exposition of theta capabilities, starting with their ancient roots as analytic features in a single variable (Volume I), concerning a few of the attractive methods they are often used to explain moduli areas (Volume II), and culminating in a methodical comparability of theta features in research, algebraic geometry, and illustration idea (Volume III).

Abelian Varieties, Theta Functions and the Fourier Transform by Alexander Polishchuk

By Alexander Polishchuk

This booklet is a latest remedy of the speculation of theta capabilities within the context of algebraic geometry. the newness of its procedure lies within the systematic use of the Fourier-Mukai remodel. Alexander Polishchuk starts off via discussing the classical conception of theta capabilities from the point of view of the illustration idea of the Heisenberg crew (in which the standard Fourier remodel performs the favourite role). He then exhibits that during the algebraic method of this idea (originally because of Mumford) the Fourier-Mukai rework can usually be used to simplify the prevailing proofs or to supply thoroughly new proofs of many very important theorems. This incisive quantity is for graduate scholars and researchers with powerful curiosity in algebraic geometry.

Convex Polytopes

The looks of Gruenbaum's publication Convex Polytopes in 1967 used to be a second of grace to geometers and combinatorialists. The targeted spirit of the ebook is especially a lot alive even in these chapters the place the book's significant impression made them speedy out of date. another chapters promise appealing unexplored land for destiny examine. the looks of the recent variation goes to be one other second of grace. Kaibel, Klee and Ziegler have been capable of replace the convex polytope saga in a transparent, actual, energetic, and encouraged manner. -Gil Kalai, The Hebrew college of Jerusalem the unique e-book of Gruenbaum has supplied the important reference for paintings during this energetic region of arithmetic for the prior 35 years...I first consulted this ebook as a graduate pupil in 1967; but, even this day, i'm shocked repeatedly by way of what i locate there. it truly is an amazingly whole reference for paintings in this topic as much as that point and remains to be an incredible effect on examine to today. -Louis J. Billera, Cornell collage the unique variation of Convex Polytopes encouraged an entire iteration of thankful employees in polytope concept. with no it, it really is uncertain even if the various next advances within the topic could were made. the various seeds it sowed have seeing that grown into fit bushes, with energetic branches and luxuriant foliage. it really is solid to determine it in print once more. -Peter McMullen, college collage LondonThe combinatorial research of convex polytopes is this day an exceptionally energetic and fit sector of mathematical examine, and the quantity and intensity of its relationships to different components of arithmetic have grown astonishingly considering the fact that Convex Polytopes used to be first released in 1966. the hot version includes the complete textual content of the unique and the addition of notes on the finish of every bankruptcy. The notes are meant to bridge the thirty 5 years of extensive examine on polytopes that have been to a wide quantity initiated, guided, prompted and fuelled through the 1st variation of Convex Polytopes. the hot fabric offers an immediate consultant to greater than four hundred papers and books that experience seemed for the reason that 1967. Branko Grünbaum is Professor of arithmetic on the collage of Washington.

It is a description of the underlying rules of algebraic geometry, a few of its vital advancements within the 20th century, and a few of the issues that occupy its practitioners this present day. it really is meant for the operating or the aspiring mathematician who's strange with algebraic geometry yet needs to achieve an appreciation of its foundations and its targets with no less than must haves. Few algebraic must haves are presumed past a uncomplicated direction in linear algebra.

Computer Graphics and Geometric Modelling: Mathematics by Max K. Agoston

By Max K. Agoston

Potentially the main complete review of special effects as noticeable within the context of geometric modelling, this quantity paintings covers implementation and concept in a radical and systematic type. special effects and Geometric Modelling: arithmetic, comprises the mathematical historical past wanted for the geometric modeling issues in special effects coated within the first quantity. This quantity starts with fabric from linear algebra and a dialogue of the ameliorations in affine & projective geometry, through issues from complicated calculus & chapters on normal topology, combinatorial topology, algebraic topology, differential topology, differential geometry, and eventually algebraic geometry. vital pursuits all through have been to give an explanation for the cloth completely, and to make it self-contained. This quantity on its own may make an exceptional arithmetic reference booklet, specifically for practitioners within the box of geometric modelling. as a result of its large assurance and emphasis on rationalization it can be used as a textual content for introductory arithmetic classes on many of the coated themes, similar to topology (general, combinatorial, algebraic, and differential) and geometry (differential & algebraic).
