P-adic geometry : lectures from the 2007 Arizona Winter School by Arizona Winter School( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent decades, p-adic geometry and p-adic cohomology theories have become indispensable tools in number theory, algebraic geometry, and the theory of automorphic representations. The Arizona Winter Schoo1 2007, on which the current book is based, was a unique opportunity to introduce graduate students to this subject." "Following invaluable introductions by John Tate and Vladimir Berkovich, two pioneers of non-archimedean geometry, Brian Conrad's chapter introduces the general theory of Tate's rigid analytic spaces, Raynaud's view of them as the generic fibers of formal schemes, and Berkovich spaces. Samit Dasgupta and Jeremy Teitelbaum discuss the p-adic upper half plane as an example of a rigid analytic space and give applications to number theory (modular forms and the p-adic Langlands program). Matthew Baker offers a detailed discussion of the Berkovich projective line and p-adic potential theory on that and more general Berkovich curves. Finally, Kiran Kedlaya discusses theoretical and computational aspects of p-adic cohomology and the zeta functions of varieties. This book will be a welcome addition to the library of any graduate student and researcher who is interested in learning about the techniques of p-adic geometry."--Jacket
Quadratic and higher degree forms by Krishnaswami Alladi( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last decade, the areas of quadratic and higher degree forms have witnessed  dramatic advances. This volume is an outgrowth of three seminal conferences on these topics held in 2009, two at the University of Florida and one at the Arizona Winter School.  The volume also includes papers from the two focused weeks on quadratic forms and integral lattices at the University of Florida in 2010.Topics discussed include the links between quadratic forms and automorphic forms, representation of integers and forms by quadratic forms, connections between quadratic forms and lattices,  and algorithms for quaternion algebras  and quadratic forms. The book will be of interest to graduate students and mathematicians wishing to study quadratic and higher degree forms, as well as to established researchers in these areas. Quadratic and Higher Degree Forms contains research and semi-expository papers that stem from the presentations at conferences at the University of Florida as well as survey lectures on quadratic forms based on the instructional workshop for graduate students held at the Arizona Winter School. The survey papers in the volume provide an excellent introduction to various aspects of the theory of quadratic forms starting from the basic concepts and provide a glimpse of some of the exciting questions currently being investigated. The research and expository papers present the latest advances on quadratic and higher degree forms and their connections with various branches of mathematics
