The algebraic and geometric theory of quadratic forms by Richard S Elman( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a comprehensive study of the algebraic theory of quadratic forms, from classical theory to recent developments, including results and proofs that have never been published. The book is written from the viewpoint of algebraic geometry and includes the theory of quadratic forms over fields of characteristic two, with proofs that are characteristic independent whenever possible. For some results both classical and geometric proofs are given. Part I includes classical algebraic theory of quadratic and bilinear forms and answers many questions that have been raised in the early stages
The book of involutions by Max-Albert Knus( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is an exposition of the theory of central simple algebras with involution, in relation to linear algebraic groups. It provides the algebra-theoretic foundations for much of the recent work on linear algebraic groups over arbitrary fields. Involutions are viewed as twisted forms of (hermitian) quadrics, leading to new developments on the model of the algebraic theory of quadratic forms. In addition to classical groups, phenomena related to triality are also discussed, as well as groups of type F₄ or G₂ arising from exceptional Jordan or composition algebras
Cohomological invariants in Galois cohomology by Skip Garibaldi( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is concerned with algebraic invariants, such as the Stiefel-Whitney classes of quadratic forms (with values in Galois cohomology mod 2) and the trace form of etale algebras (with values in the Witt ring). The invariants are analogues for Galois cohomology of the characteristic classes of topology. Historically, one of the first examples of cohomological invariants of the type considered here was the Hasse-Witt invariant of quadratic forms." "The first part classifies such invariants in several cases. A principal tool is the notion of versal torsor, which is an analogue of the universal bundle in topology. The second part gives Rost's determination of the invariants of G-torsors with values in H[superscript 3](Q/Z(2)), when G is a semisimple, simply connected, linear group. This part gives detailed proofs of the existence and basic properties of the Rost invariant."--Jacket

Variétés rationnelles et torseurs sous les groupes linéaires : obstruction de Brauer-Manin pour les points entiers et invariants cohomologiques supérieurs by Yang Cao( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dans cette thèse, on s'intéresse à des propriétés arithmétiques des variétés algébriques. Elle contient deux parties : partie géométrique (sur un corps quelconque) et partie arithmétique (sur un corps de nombres). Dans la partie géométrique, j'étudie le quotient par sa partie constante du troisième groupe de cohomologie non ramifiée des surfaces (géométriquement) rationnelles et de leurs torseurs universels. Pour les surfaces de del Pezzo de degré au moins 5, je montre que ce quotient est trivial, sauf pour des surfaces de del Pezzo de degré 8 d'un type particulier. Pour les torseurs universels ci-dessus, je montre que ce quotient est fini et je donne une condition suffisante pour qu'il soit nul, en termes de la structure galoisienne du groupe de Picard géométrique de la surface. Dans la partie arithmétique, on étudie l'obstruction de Brauer-Manin à l'approximation forte. En collaboration avec C. Demarche et F. Xu, nous établissons l'équivalence de l'obstruction de Brauer-Manin étale et de l'obstruction de descente pour les variétés quasi-projectives. Ensuite, j'établis un théorème très général sur l'approximation forte pour les variétés ouvertes munies d'une action d'un groupe linéaire connexe G et dont un ouvert est un espace homogène de G
