By C. Herbert Clemens

This advantageous ebook via Herb Clemens speedy grew to become a favourite of many algebraic geometers while it used to be first released in 1980. it's been well liked by newcomers and specialists ever on account that. it really is written as a publication of 'impressions' of a trip during the concept of complicated algebraic curves. Many issues of compelling good looks take place alongside the way in which. A cursory look on the matters visited unearths a perfectly eclectic choice, from conics and cubics to theta capabilities, Jacobians, and questions of moduli. via the top of the e-book, the subject of theta services turns into transparent, culminating within the Schottky challenge. The author's reason used to be to encourage additional examine and to stimulate mathematical job. The attentive reader will examine a lot approximately complicated algebraic curves and the instruments used to check them. The booklet should be particularly important to an individual getting ready a direction regarding advanced curves or someone drawn to supplementing his/her studying.
