Mumford-Tate groups and domains : their geometry and arithmetic by Mark Green( )

20 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mumford-Tate groups are the fundamental symmetry groups of Hodge theory, a subject which rests at the center of contemporary complex algebraic geometry. This book is the first comprehensive exploration of Mumford-Tate groups and domains. Containing basic theory and a wealth of new views and results, it will become an essential resource for graduate students and researchers. Although Mumford-Tate groups can be defined for general structures, their theory and use to date has mainly been in the classical case of abelian varieties. While the book does examine this area, it focuses on the nonclassical case. The general theory turns out to be very rich, such as in the unexpected connections of finite dimensional and infinite dimensional representation theory of real, semisimple Lie groups. The authors give the complete classification of Hodge representations, a topic that should become a standard in the finite-dimensional representation theory of noncompact, real, semisimple Lie groups. They also indicate that in the future, a connection seems ready to be made between Lie groups that admit discrete series representations and the study of automorphic cohomology on quotients of Mumford-Tate domains by arithmetic groups. Bringing together complex geometry, representation theory, and arithmetic, this book opens up a fresh perspective on an important subject

Rational homotopy theory and differential forms by Phillip Griffiths( )

26 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and Russian and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rational homotopy theory is today one of the major trends in algebraic topology. Despite the great progress made in only a few years, a textbook properly devoted to this subject still was lacking until now The appearance of the text in book form is highly welcome, since it will satisfy the need of many interested people. Moreover, it contains an approach and point of view that do not appear explicitly in the current literature. Zentralblatt MATH (Review of First Edition) The monograph is intended as an introduction to the theory of minimal models. Anyone who wishes to learn about the theory will find this book a very helpful and enlightening one. There are plenty of examples, illustrations, diagrams and exercises. The material is developed with patience and clarity. Efforts are made to avoid generalities and technicalities that may distract the reader or obscure the main theme. The theory and its power are elegantly presented. This is an excellent monograph. Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society (Review of First Edition) This completely revised and corrected version of the well-known Florence notes circulated by the authors together with E. Friedlander examines basic topology, emphasizing homotopy theory. Included is a discussion of Postnikov towers and rational homotopy theory. This is then followed by an in-depth look at differential forms and de Thams theorem on simplical complexes. In addition, Sullivans results on computing the rational homotopy type from forms is presented

Topics in transcendental algebraic geometry( Book )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During 1981-1982 the Institute for Advanced Study held a special year on algebraic geometry. Naturally there were a number of seminars, and this volume is essentially the proceedings of one of these. The motif of the seminar was to explore the ways in which the recent developments in formal Hodge theory might be applied to problems in algebraic geometry."- introduction
Differential systems and isometric embeddings by Phillip Griffiths( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of exterior differential systems provides a framework for systematically addressing the typically non-linear, and frequently overdetermined, partial differential equations that arise in differential geometry. Adaptation of the techniques of microlocalization to differential systems have led to recent activity on the foundations of the theory; in particular, the fundamental role of the characteristic variety in geometric problems is now clearly established. In this book the general theory is explained in a relatively quick and concrete manner, and then this general theory is applied to the recent developments in the classical problem of isometric embeddings of Riemannian manifolds

Geometry of algebraic curves by Enrico Arbarello( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume of the Geometry of Algebraic Curves is devoted to the foundations of the theory of moduli of algebraic curves. Its authors are research mathematicians who have actively participated in the development of the Geometry of Algebraic Curves. The subject is an extremely fertile and active one, both within the mathematical community and at the interface with the theoretical physics community. The approach is unique in its blending of algebro-geometric, complex analytic and topological/combinatorial methods. It treats important topics such as Teichmüller theory, the cellular decomposition of moduli and its consequences and the Witten conjecture. The careful and comprehensive presentation of the material will be of value to students who wish to learn the subject and to experts as a reference source. The first volume appeared 1985 as volume 267 of the same series
Geometry of algebraic curves by E Arbarello( Book )

in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years there has been enormous activity in the theory of algebraic curves. Many long-standing problems have been solved using the general techniques developed in algebraic geometry during the 1950's and 1960's. Additionally, unexpected and deep connections between algebraic curves and differential equations have been uncovered, and these in turn shed light on other classical problems in curve theory. It seems fair to say that the theory of algebraic curves looks completely different now from how it appeared 15 years ago; in particular, our current state of knowledge repre sents a significant advance beyond the legacy left by the classical geometers such as Noether, Castelnuovo, Enriques, and Severi. These books give a presentation of one of the central areas of this recent activity; namely, the study of linear series on both a fixed curve (Volume I) and on a variable curve (Volume II). Our goal is to give a comprehensive and self-contained account of the extrinsic geometry of algebraic curves, which in our opinion constitutes the main geometric core of the recent advances in curve theory. Along the way we shall, of course, discuss appli cations of the theory of linear series to a number of classical topics (e.g., the geometry of the Riemann theta divisor) as well as to some of the current research (e.g., the Kodaira dimension of the moduli space of curves)
An introduction to the theory of special divisors on algebraic curves by Phillip A Griffiths( Book )

16 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May, 1979, an NSF Regional Conference was held at the University of Georgia in Athens. The topic of the conference was "Special divisors on algebraic curves, ". This monograph gives an exposition of the elementary aspects of the theory of special divisors together with an explanation of some more advanced results that are not too technical. As such, it is intended to be an introduction to recent sources. As with most subjects, one may approach the theory of special divisors from several points of view. The one adopted here pertains to Clifford's theorem, and may be informally stated as follo
On the tangent space to the space of algebraic cycles on a smooth algebraic variety by M Green( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, considerable progress has been made in studying algebraic cycles using infinitesimal methods. These methods have usually been applied to Hodge-theoretic constructions such as the cycle class and the Abel-Jacobi map. Substantial advances have also occurred in the infinitesimal theory for subvarieties of a given smooth variety, centered around the normal bundle and the obstructions coming from the normal bundle's first cohomology group. Here, Mark Green and Phillip Griffiths set forth the initial stages of an infinitesimal theory for algebraic cycles. The book aims in part to understand the geometric basis and the limitations of Spencer Bloch's beautiful formula for the tangent space to Chow groups. Bloch's formula is motivated by algebraic K-theory and involves differentials over Q. The theory developed here is characterized by the appearance of arithmetic considerations even in the local infinitesimal theory of algebraic cycles. The map from the tangent space to the Hilbert scheme to the tangent space to algebraic cycles passes through a variant of an interesting construction in commutative algebra due to Angéniol and Lejeune-Jalabert. The link between the theory given here and Bloch's formula arises from an interpretation of the Cousin flasque resolution of differentials over Q as the tangent sequence to the Gersten resolution in algebraic K-theory. The case of 0-cycles on a surface is used for illustrative purposes to avoid undue technical complications
Exterior differential systems and Euler-Lagrange partial differential equations by Robert L Bryant( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Exterior Differential Systems, the authors present the results of their ongoing development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems, which provides the language and techniques for the entire study. Because it plays a central role in uncovering geometric properties of differential equations, the method of equivalence is particularly emphasized. In addition, the authors discuss conformally invariant systems at length, including results on the classification and application of symmetries and conservation laws. The book also covers the Second Variation, Euler-Lagrange PDE systems, and higher-order conservation laws
Hodge theory, complex geometry, and representation theory by M Green( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph presents topics in Hodge theory and representation theory, two of the most active and important areas in contemporary mathematics. The underlying theme is the use of complex geometry to understand the two subjects and their relationships to one another-an approach that is complementary to what is in the literature. Finite-dimensional representation theory and complex geometry enter via the concept of Hodge representations and Hodge domains. Infinite-dimensional representation theory, specifically the discrete series and their limits, enters through the realization of these repre
