This quantity is the 1st of 3 in a sequence surveying the speculation of theta features. in keeping with lectures given by way of the writer on the Tata Institute of primary study in Bombay, those volumes represent a scientific exposition of theta features, starting with their ancient roots as analytic capabilities in a single variable (Volume I), bearing on many of the attractive methods they are often used to explain moduli areas (Volume II), and culminating in a methodical comparability of theta features in research, algebraic geometry, and illustration concept (Volume III).

An Introduction to Algebraic Geometry and Algebraic Groups (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

An obtainable textual content introducing algebraic geometries and algebraic teams at complicated undergraduate and early graduate point, this publication develops the language of algebraic geometry from scratch and makes use of it to establish the speculation of affine algebraic teams from first rules. development at the historical past fabric from algebraic geometry and algebraic teams, the textual content offers an creation to extra complicated and specialized fabric.

The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

The idea of elliptic curves is special via its lengthy background and by way of the range of the tools which were utilized in its research. This e-book treats the mathematics method in its glossy formula, by using easy algebraic quantity idea and algebraic geometry. Following a short dialogue of the required algebro-geometric effects, the booklet proceeds with an exposition of the geometry and the formal crew of elliptic curves, elliptic curves over finite fields, the complicated numbers, neighborhood fields, and worldwide fields.
