Most widely held works by Karen E Smith
An invitation to algebraic geometry by Karen E Smith( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to describe the underlying principles of algebraic geometry, some of its important developments in the twentieth century, and some of the problems that occupy its practitioners today. It is intended for the working or the aspiring mathematician who is unfamiliar with algebraic geometry but wishes to gain an appreciation of its foundations and its goals with a minimum of prerequisites. Few algebraic prerequisites are presumed beyond a basic course in linear algebra."--Jacket
Rational and nearly rational varieties by János Kollár( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tight closure of parameter ideals and F-rationality by Karen E Smith( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trends in commutative algebra by Mathematical Sciences Research Institute Introductory Workshop on Commutative Algebra( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 2002, an introductory workshop was held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley to survey some of the many new directions of the commutative algebra field. Six principal speakers each gave three lectures, accompanied by a help session, describing the interaction of commutative algebra with other areas of mathematics for a broad audience of graduate students and researchers. This book is based on those lectures, together with papers from contributing researchers. David Benson and Srikanth Iyengar present an introduction to the uses and concepts of commutative algebra in the cohomology of groups. Mark Haiman considers the commutative algebra of n points in the plane. Ezra Miller presents an introduction to the Hilbert scheme of points to complement Professor Haiman's paper. David Eisenbud and Jessica Sidman give an introduction to the geometry of syzygies, addressing the basic question of relating the geometry of a projective variety with an embedding into projective space to the minimal free resolution of its coordinate ring over the polynomial ring of ambient projective space. Melvin Hochster presents an introduction to the theory of tight closure. Graham Leuschke adds a supporting paper on examples of tight closure and how to compute it. Rob Lazarsfeld and Manuel Blickle discuss the theory of multiplier ideals and how they can be used in commutative algebra. Bernard Teissier presents ideas related to resolution of singularities, complemented by Ana Bravo's paper on canonical subalgebra bases. -- Publisher description
