Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E. Andrews

By George E. Andrews

This quantity is the second one of roughly 4 volumes that the authors plan to jot down on Ramanujan’s misplaced computer, that is generally interpreted to incorporate all fabric released within the misplaced computer and different Unpublished Papers in 1988.  the first issues addressed within the authors’ moment quantity at the misplaced laptop are q-series, Eisenstein sequence, and theta services. many of the entries on q-series can be found within the center of the unique misplaced laptop, whereas the entries on Eisenstein sequence are both scattered within the misplaced laptop or are present in letters that Ramanujan wrote to G.H. Hardy from nursing houses.

Intersections de deux quadriques et pinceaux de courbes de by Olivier Wittenberg

By Olivier Wittenberg

Cet ouvrage est consacré � l'arithmétique des surfaces fibrées en courbes de style 1 au-dessus de los angeles droite projective, et � l'arithmétique des intersections de deux quadriques dans l'espace projectif. Swinnerton-Dyer introduisit en 1993 une approach permettant d'étudier les issues rationnels des pinceaux de courbes de style 1. los angeles première moitié de l'ouvrage reprend et développe cette process ainsi que ses généralisations ultérieures. l. a. seconde moitié, qui repose sur l. a. première, porte sur les surfaces de del Pezzo de degré four et sur les intersections de deux quadriques de measurement supérieure; les résultats annoncés dans [C. R. Math. Acad. Sci. Paris 342 (2006), no. four, 223--227] y sont démontrés.

This examine monograph makes a speciality of the mathematics, over quantity fields, of
surfaces fibred into curves of genus 1 over the projective line, and of
intersections of 2 quadrics in projective house. the 1st part comprises a
complete account of the process initiated by means of Swinnerton-Dyer in 1993 for
studying rational issues on pencils of curves of genus 1, whereas incorporating
and generalising such a lot of its next refinements. the second one part, which
builds upon the 1st, is dedicated to quartic del Pezzo surfaces and
higher-dimensional intersections of 2 quadrics. It culminates within the proof
of the consequences introduced in [C. R. Math. Acad. Sci. Paris 342 (2006), no. 4,

Solitons and geometry by S. P. Novikov

By S. P. Novikov

During this ebook, Professor Novikov describes contemporary advancements in soliton concept and their family members to so-called Poisson geometry. This formalism, that's regarding symplectic geometry, is intensely helpful for the learn of integrable structures which are defined when it comes to differential equations (ordinary or partial) and quantum box theories. Professor Novikov examines a number of Hamiltonian platforms, in the framework of Poisson geometry, to illustrate its energy. This publication should be of curiosity to mathematicians and physicists.

Non-Archimedean L-Functions and Arithmetical Siegel Modular by Michel Courtieu

By Michel Courtieu

This publication, now in its 2d version, is dedicated to the arithmetical idea of Siegel modular varieties and their L-functions. The significant object are L-functions of classical Siegel modular kinds whose particular values are studied utilizing the Rankin-Selberg procedure and the motion of convinced differential operators on modular varieties that have great arithmetical houses. a brand new approach to p-adic interpolation of those serious values is gifted. an incredible classification of p-adic L-functions treated within the current ebook are p-adic L-functions of Siegel modular kinds having logarithmic progress. The given development of those p-adic L-functions makes use of particular algebraic houses of the arithmetical Shimura differential operator. The publication should be very necessary for postgraduate scholars and for non-experts looking for a fast method of a speedily constructing area of algebraic quantity thought. This re-creation is considerably revised to account for the recent factors that experience emerged some time past 10 years of the most formulation for specified L-values by way of arithmetical idea of approximately holomorphic modular types.

Singularities and Topology of Hypersurfaces by Alexandru Dimca

By Alexandru Dimca

This ebook systematically offers plenty of simple effects at the topology of advanced algebraic kinds utilizing the knowledge at the neighborhood topology and geometry of a singularity. those strategies are then utilized in the computation of worldwide topological invariants, resembling homology teams, cohomology teams, basic teams, and Alexander polynomials. The reader will derive from this article a operating wisdom of Whitney stratifications, Lefschetz-type theorems, knots and hyperlinks, Milnor fibrations, vanishing cycles, weighted projective area, combined Hodge constructions and lots of different similar notions and effects. The publication is meant for graduate paintings in algebraic and differential topology, and is a superb resource of usual examples and open-ended difficulties for the coed engaged on a dissertation.

Sheaves in Topology by Lajos Diosi

By Lajos Diosi

Constructible and perverse sheaves are the algebraic counterpart of the decomposition of a novel area into soft manifolds, a very good geometrical concept as a result of R. Thom and H. Whitney. those sheaves, generalizing the neighborhood structures which are so ubiquitous in arithmetic, have strong functions to the topology of such singular areas (mainly algebraic and analytic complicated varieties).

This creation to the topic will be considered as a textbook on sleek algebraic topology, treating the cohomology of areas with sheaf (as against constant)coefficients.

The first five chapters introduce derived different types, direct and inverse photographs of sheaf complexes, Verdier duality, constructible and perverse sheaves, vanishing and attribute cycles. additionally they talk about kinfolk to D-modules and intersection cohomology. Later chapters follow this strong device to the examine of the topology of singularities, polynomial services and hyperplane arrangements.

Some primary effects, for which first-class assets exist, should not proved yet simply said and illustrated by way of examples and corollaries. during this approach, the reader is guided fairly fast from the fundamental conception to present examine questions, supported during this through examples and exercises.

Modular forms and functions by Robert A. Rankin

By Robert A. Rankin

This ebook offers an advent to the idea of elliptic modular services and types, a topic of accelerating curiosity as a result of its connexions with the idea of elliptic curves. Modular kinds are generalisations of capabilities like theta capabilities. they are often expressed as Fourier sequence, and the Fourier coefficients usually own multiplicative homes which bring about a correspondence among modular types and Dirichlet sequence having Euler items. The Fourier coefficients additionally come up in sure representational difficulties within the idea of numbers, for instance within the research of the variety of ways that a favorable integer might be expressed as a sum of a given variety of squares. The therapy of the idea offered here's fuller than is established in a textbook on automorphic or modular kinds, because it isn't really restrained exclusively to modular kinds of crucial weight (dimension). will probably be of curiosity to expert mathematicians in addition to senior undergraduate and graduate scholars in natural arithmetic.
