**Quadratic and hermitian forms over rings**

This publication offers the speculation of quadratic and hermitian types over jewelry in a truly normal surroundings. It avoids, so far as attainable, any limit at the attribute and takes complete benefit of the functorial houses of the idea. it isn't an encyclopedic survey. It stresses the algebraic elements of the idea and avoids - is fairly overlapping with different books on quadratic varieties (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 ancient presentation of his existence and interplay with the classical Italian tuition of algebraic geometry, the quantity offers surveys and unique examine papers at the arithmetic he studied.

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

The main target of this quantity is at the challenge of describing the automorphism teams of affine and projective types, a classical topic in algebraic geometry the place, in either circumstances, the automorphism staff is usually endless dimensional. the gathering covers a variety 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 staff activities and automorphism teams.

6) Spec ∆g = { i,j=1 gij pi pj ; pi ∈ Zd }. On the other hand, the energy of a winding string is (as one might expect intuitively) a function of its length. 7) 2 gij wi wj . L = i,j=1 Now, the only string theory input we need to bring in is that the total Hamiltonian contains both terms, H = ∆ g + L2 + · · · where the extra terms · · · express the energy of excited (or “oscillator”) modes of the string. Then, the inversion g → g−1 , combined with the interchange p ↔ w, leaves the spectrum of H invariant.
