The current quantity grew out of a world convention on affine algebraic geometry held in Osaka, Japan in the course of 3-6 March 2011 and is devoted to Professor Masayoshi Miyanishi at the party of his seventieth birthday. It includes sixteen refereed articles within the components of affine algebraic geometry, commutative algebra and similar fields, that have been the operating fields of Professor Miyanishi for nearly 50 years. Readers can be capable of finding fresh developments in those components too. the themes comprise either algebraic and analytic, in addition to either affine and projective, difficulties. all of the effects handled during this quantity are new and unique which in this case will supply clean study difficulties to discover. This quantity is appropriate for graduate scholars and researchers in those components.

**Quadratic and hermitian forms over rings**

This ebook offers the idea of quadratic and hermitian varieties over jewelry in a really basic atmosphere. It avoids, so far as attainable, any limit at the attribute and takes complete benefit of the functorial homes of the speculation. it's not an encyclopedic survey. It stresses the algebraic facets of the idea and avoids - in all fairness overlapping with different books on quadratic kinds (like these of Lam, Milnor-Husemöller and Scharlau).

**Liaison, Schottky Problem and Invariant Theory: Remembering Federico Gaeta**

This quantity is a homage to the reminiscence of the Spanish mathematician Federico Gaeta (1923-2007). except a old presentation of his lifestyles and interplay with the classical Italian tuition of algebraic geometry, the amount provides surveys and unique learn papers at the arithmetic he studied.

**Automorphisms in Birational and Affine Geometry: Levico Terme, Italy, October 2012**

The focus of this quantity is at the challenge of describing the automorphism teams of affine and projective forms, a classical topic in algebraic geometry the place, in either situations, the automorphism team is frequently limitless dimensional. the gathering covers quite a lot of subject matters and is meant for researchers within the fields of classical algebraic geometry and birational geometry (Cremona teams) in addition to affine geometry with an emphasis on algebraic workforce activities and automorphism teams.

Since ϕ normalizes the subgroup Gd,e = g we have ϕ−1 ◦g◦ϕ = g k for some k ∈ N and so g ◦ ϕ = ϕ ◦ g k . Hence g(ϕ(Cx )) = ϕ(g k (Cx )) = ϕ(Cx ) and, similarly, g(ϕ(Cy )) = ϕ(Cy ). This yields (25). e. ϕ(¯0) = ¯0. Now the last assertion follows easily. 10. If e2 ≡ 1 mod d then + − Nd,e = Nd,e , Nd,e , (27) while for e2 ≡ 1 mod d, (28) + + Nd,e = Nd,e , Nd,e = Nd,e ,τ . Proof. For ϕ ∈ Nd,e we let C = ϕ−1 (Cy ). 9 (see (25)) the cyclic group Gd,e stabilizes C and ¯0 ∈ C. 8 there is + − , Nd,e which sends C to one of the coordinate an automorphism ψ ∈ Nd,e −1 axes Cx , Cy .

10. (a) Let C = {f (y) = 0}, where f ∈ C[y] is a polynomial of degree ≥ 2 with simple roots. If K ⊆ C denotes the set of these roots, then Stab(C) = T1,0 · U + · Stab(K) , where U + ⊆ Aut(A2 ) is as in (6), T1,0 = {λ ∈ T | λ : (x, y) → (αx, y), α ∈ C× } , and the stabilizer Stab(K) ⊆ Aut(A1 ) → Aut(A2 ) acts naturally on the symbol y. (b) If C of type (II) is the coordinate cross {xy = 0} in A2 then Stab(C) = N (T) is the normalizer of the maximal torus T in the group GL(2, C). (c) If C of type (IV) is a union of r aﬃne lines through the origin, where r ≥ 3, then Stab(C) ⊆ GL(2, C) is a ﬁnite extension of the group T1,1 = C× · id of scalar matrices.

Hence this ﬁber cannot carry a curve with Euler characteristic 1. This leads to a contradiction, because d > 1 by our assumption. Thus the curve C 1 is smooth. It follows that every ﬁber of p is isomorphic to A1 . Hence there is an automorphism δ ∈ Aut(A2 ) sending the curves C i to the lines y = κi with distinct ki , where κ1 = 1. Moreover, we may suppose that δ(¯0) = ¯0. 8. 5). Hence the elements g = ρ(g) ∈ T and ρ(g ) ∈ T are conjugated in GL(2, C) and so either ρ(g ) = ρ(g) = g or ρ(g ) = τ gτ .
