By George E. Andrews, Bruce C. Berndt

Within the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania kingdom college visited the library at Trinity university, Cambridge, to check the papers of the overdue G.N. Watson. between those papers, Andrews found a sheaf of 138 pages within the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. This manuscript used to be quickly certain "Ramanujan's misplaced notebook." The "lost computing device" includes enormous fabric on mock theta capabilities and so certainly emanates from the final yr of Ramanujan's lifestyles. it's going to be emphasised that the cloth on mock theta capabilities could be Ramanujan's inner most paintings.

Quadratic and hermitian forms over rings

This e-book offers the idea of quadratic and hermitian kinds over earrings in a really normal atmosphere. It avoids, so far as attainable, any limit at the attribute and takes complete benefit of the functorial homes of the idea. it's not an encyclopedic survey. It stresses the algebraic facets of the speculation and avoids - in all fairness 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 tuition of algebraic geometry, the quantity provides surveys and unique study 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 circumstances, the automorphism crew is usually countless dimensional. the gathering covers quite a lot of themes 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 crew activities and automorphism teams.

2 and Auxiliary Results 37 The latter entry and the next entry are the analytic versions of the two famous G¨ ollnitz–Gordon identities [157]. They can also be found in Slater’s list [262, equations (36), (34)], but with q replaced by −q. The G¨ollnitz– Gordon identities have played a seminal role in the subsequent development of the theory of partition identities. They were first studied in this regard by H. G¨ ollnitz [156] and by B. Gordon [158], [159]. A generalization by Andrews [10] led to a number of further discoveries culminating in [16].
