By Tadao Oda

The idea of toric forms (also known as torus embeddings) describes a desirable interaction among algebraic geometry and the geometry of convex figures in actual affine areas. This e-book is a unified updated survey of a few of the effects and engaging purposes came upon seeing that toric kinds have been brought within the early 1970's. it really is an up-to-date and corrected English variation of the author's publication in eastern released by way of Kinokuniya, Tokyo in 1985. Toric kinds are the following taken care of as complicated analytic areas. with no assuming a lot earlier wisdom of algebraic geometry, the writer indicates how ordinary convex figures supply upward thrust to attention-grabbing complicated analytic areas. simply visualized convex geometry is then used to explain algebraic geometry for those areas, comparable to line bundles, projectivity, automorphism teams, birational ameliorations, differential types and Mori's thought. accordingly this booklet may possibly function an obtainable advent to present algebraic geometry. Conversely, the algebraic geometry of toric types offers new perception into persevered fractions in addition to their higher-dimensional analogues, the isoperimetric challenge and different questions about convex our bodies. appropriate effects on convex geometry are amassed jointly within the appendix.

Quadratic and hermitian forms over rings

This publication offers the speculation of quadratic and hermitian types over jewelry in a really normal atmosphere. It avoids, so far as attainable, any limit at the attribute and takes complete good thing about the functorial homes of the idea. it isn't an encyclopedic survey. It stresses the algebraic elements of the speculation and avoids - is reasonably overlapping with different books on quadratic types (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 institution of algebraic geometry, the amount provides 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 kinds, a classical topic in algebraic geometry the place, in either instances, the automorphism crew is usually limitless 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.
