Ideals, varieties, and algorithms : an introduction to computational algebraic geometry and commutative algebra by
David A Cox(

107 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Algebraic geometry is the study of systems of polynomial equations in one or more variables, asking such questions as: Does the system have finitely many solutions, and if so how can one find them? And if there are infinitely many solutions, how can they be described and manipulated?" "The solutions of a system of polynomial equations form a geometric object called a variety; the corresponding algebraic object is an ideal. There is a close relationship between ideals and varieties which reveals the intimate link between algebra and geometry. Written at a level appropriate to undergraduates, this book covers such topics as the Hilbert Basis Theorem, the Nullstellensatz, invariant theory, projective geometry, and dimension theory." "The algorithms to answer questions such as those posed above are an important part of algebraic geometry. This book bases its discussion of algorithms on a generalization of the division algorithm for polynomials in one variable that was only discovered in the 1960s. Although the algorithmic roots of algebraic geometry are old, the computational aspects were neglected earlier in this century. This has changed in recent years, and new algorithms, coupled with the power of fast computers, have led to some interesting applications  for example, in robotics and in geometric theorem proving."BOOK JACKET

Using algebraic geometry by
David A Cox(
Book
)
49 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book illustrates the many uses of algebraic geometry, highlighting some of the more recent applications of Grobner bases and resultants. In order to do this, the authors provide an introduction to some algebraic objects and techniques which are more advanced than one typically encounters in a first course, but nonetheless of great utility." "The book is written for nonspecialists and for readers with a diverse range of backgrounds. It assumes knowledge of the material covered in a standard undergraduate course in abstract algebra, and it would help to have some previous exposure to Grobner bases. The book does not assume the reader is familiar with more advanced concepts such as modules."Jacket

Algebraic Geometry is the study of systems of polynomial equations in one or more variables, asking such questions as: Does the system have finitely many solutions, and if so how can one find them? And if there are infinitely many solutions, how can they be described and manipulated? The solutions of a system of polynomial equations form a geometric object called a variety; the corresponding algebraic object is an ideal. There is a close relationship between ideals and varieties which reveals the intimate link between algebra and geometry. Written at a level appropriate to undergraduates, this book covers such topics as the Hilbert Basis Theorem, the Nullstellensatz, invariant theory, projective geometry, and dimension theory. The algorithms to answer questions such as those posed above are an important part of algebraic geometry. Although the algorithmic roots of algebraic geometry are old, it is only in the last forty years that computational methods have regained their earlier prominence. New algorithms, coupled with the power of fast computers, have led to both theoretical advances and interesting applications, for example in robotics and in geometric theorem proving. In addition to enhancing the text of the second edition, with over 200 pages reflecting changes to enhance clarity and correctness, this third edition of Ideals, Varieties and Algorithms includes: A significantly updated section on Maple in Appendix C Updated information on AXIOM, CoCoA, Macaulay 2, Magma, Mathematica and SINGULAR A shorter proof of the Extension Theorem presented in Section 6 of Chapter 3 From the 2nd Edition: "I consider the book to be wonderful. ... The exposition is very clear, there are many helpful pictures, and there are a great many instructive exercises, some quite challenging ... offers the heart and soul of modern commutative and algebraic geometry."

Loyalties in conflict : a Canadian borderland in war and rebellion, 18121840 by
John Irvine Little(
)
2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite their strategic location on the American border, the townships of Lower Canada have been largely ignored in studies of the War of 1812 and the Rebellions of 183738. Originally settled by Loyalists from New York, and followed by much larger numbers of land seekers from New England, this was a potentially volatile borderland during BritishAmerican conflicts. J.I. Little's Loyalties in Conflict examines how the allegiance to British authority of the Americanorigin population within the borders of Lower Canada was tested by the War of 1812 and the Rebellions of 18371838. Little argues that while loyalties were highly localized, American border raids during the war caused a defensive reaction north of the 45th parallel. The resulting sense of distinction from neighbouring Vermont, with its radical religious and political culture, did not prevent a strong regional reform movement from emerging in the eastern townships during the 1820s and 1830s. This movement undermines the argument of Quebec's nationalist historians that the political contest in Lower Canada was essentially a FrenchEnglish one, but the dual threat of FrenchCanadian and American nationalism did ensure the border townships's loyalty to the government during the rebellions. The following years would witness the development of an increasingly conservative and distinctly Canadian cultural identity in the region. A rigorous study of a pivotal period in North American history, Loyalties in Conflict is a fascinating account of conflicting forces in one region that, like the rest of Canada, has been largely shaped by the interaction of American and British influences, as well as Frenchlanguage and Englishlanguage ones

The Child letters : public and private life in a Canadian merchantpolitician's family : 18411845 by
Marcus Child(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Child Letters yields an intimate look at the daily life of an ordinary Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of the recently unified province of Canada. A collection of the almost daily correspondence between Marcus Child and his family while he was attending legislative sessions in Kingston, the capital, the letters yield important insights into both political and family matters." "The letters provide the first detailed history of Eastern Township politics during the 1830s and 1840s. They are also an excellent source of information for the social historian, reflecting the concerns of one nineteenthcentury Canadian family outside the small Britishborn elite. Issues discussed in the letters include religion and moral reform, daughter Elizabeth's search for a husband, local life in Stanstead village, and vignettes of social life among MLAs in Kingston. Furthermore, the letters support recent findings that gender identities were not as strictly defined during this era as earlier historians have suggested." "The Child letters present the first detailed history of Eastern Township politics during the 1830s and 1840s, providing increased insight into the important constitutional crises of the early 1840s and giving readers a glimpse at the thoughts of a nineteenthcentury Canadian family outside the small Britishborn elite."Jacket
