Min Ho Lee's Mixed Automorphic Forms, Torus Bundles, and Jacobi Forms PDF

This quantity bargains with quite a few subject matters round equivariant holomorphic maps of Hermitian symmetric domain names and is meant for experts in quantity concept and algebraic geometry. specifically, it features a accomplished exposition of combined automorphic kinds that hasn't ever but seemed in booklet shape. the most target is to discover connections between advanced torus bundles, combined automorphic types, and Jacobi types linked to an equivariant holomorphic map.

Read e-book online Solitons and geometry PDF

During this publication, Professor Novikov describes fresh advancements in soliton thought and their family members to so-called Poisson geometry. This formalism, that's on the topic of symplectic geometry, is intensely worthy for the learn of integrable platforms which are defined by way of differential equations (ordinary or partial) and quantum box theories.

Intersection Theory by William Fulton PDF

Intersection thought has performed a vital function in arithmetic, from the traditional origins of algebraic geometry within the ideas of polynomial equations to the triumphs of algebraic geometry over the last centuries. This ebook develops the rules of the speculation and exhibits the variety of classical and smooth purposes.

These conjectures have generated wide interest and stimulated intense research. , k which are contained in a finitely generated extension of ‫ ޑ‬p , by Mochizuki [1999]; • proof of the birational Section-conjecture for local fields of characteristic zero, by Königsmann [2005]. Here is an incomplete list of other significant result in this area: [Nakamura 1990; Voevodsky 1991a; 1991b; Tamagawa 1997]. In all cases, the proofs relied on nonabelian properties in the structure of the Galois group G K , respectively, the relative Galois group.

Several ingredients of the proof of Theorem 2 sketched above appeared already in Grothendieck’s anabelian geometry, relating the full absolute Galois group of function fields to the geometry of projective models. Specifically, even before Grothendieck’s insight, it was understood by Uchida and Neukirch (in the context of number fields and function fields of curves over finite fields) that the identification of decomposition groups of valuations can be obtained in purely group-theoretic terms as, roughly speaking, subgroups with nontrivial center.

Interesting examples of function fields arise from faithful representations of finite groups G → Aut(V ), where V = ‫ށ‬kn is the standard affine space over k. The corresponding variety X = V /G is clearly unirational. When n ≤ 2 and k is algebraically closed the quotient is rational (even though there exist unirational but nonrational surfaces in positive characteristic). The quotient is also rational when G is abelian and k algebraically closed. Noether’s problem (inspired by invariant theory and the inverse problem in Galois theory) asks whether or not X = V /G is rational for nonabelian groups.
