Galois groups over Q : proceedings of a workshop held March 23-27, 1987 by Y Ihara( Book )

14 editions published in 1989 in English and Multiple languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is being published in connection with a March, 1987 workshop on Galois groups over Q and related topics, held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley. The organizing committee for the workshop consisted of Kenneth Ribet (chairman), Yasutaka Ihara, and Jean-Pierre Serre. The volume contains key original papers by experts in the field, and treats a variety of questions in arithmetical algebraic geometry. A number of the contributions discuss Galois actions on fundamental groups, and associated topics: these include Fermat curves, Gauss sums, cyclotomic units, and motivic questions. Other themes which reoccur include semistable reduction of algebraic varieties, deformations of Galois representations, and connections between Galois representations and modular forms. The authors contributing to the volume are: G.W. Anderson, D. Blasius, D. Ramakrishnan, P. Deligne, Y. Ihara, U. Jannsen, B.H. Matzat, B. Maszur, and K. Wingberg. The contributions are of exceptionally high quality, and this book will have permanent value. The volume will be of great interest to students and established workers in many areas of algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry

The Grothendieck Festschrift : a collection of articles written in honor of the 60th birthday of Alexander Grothendieck by P Cartier( Book )

26 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and French and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The many diverse articles presented in these three volumes, collected on the occasion of Alexander Grothendieck's sixtieth birthday and originally published in 1990, were offered as a tribute to one of the world's greatest living mathematicians. Grothendieck changed the very way we think about many branches of mathematics. Many of his ideas, revolutionary when introduced, now seem so natural as to have been inevitable. Indeed, it is difficult to fully grasp the influence his vast contributions to modern mathematics have subsequently had on new generations of mathematicians. Many of the groundbreaking contributions in these volumes contain material that is now considered foundational to the subject. Topics addressed by these top-notch contributors match the breadth of Grothendieck's own interests, including: functional analysis, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, number theory, representation theory, K-theory, category theory, and homological algebra. CONTRIBUTORS to Volume I: A. Altman, M. Artin, V. Balaji, A. Beauville, A.A. Beilinson, P. Berthelot, J.-M. Bismut, S. Bloch, L. Breen, J.-L. Brylinski, J. Dieudonné, H. Gillet, A.B. Goncharov, K.

Arithmetic theory of elliptic curves : lectures given at the 3rd session of the Centro internazionale matematico estivo (C.I.M.E.), held in Cetraro, Italy, July 12-19, 1997 by J Coates( )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the expanded versions of the lectures given by the authors at the C.I.M.E. instructional conference held in Cetraro, Italy, from July 12 to 19, 1997. The papers collected here are broad surveys of the current research in the arithmetic of elliptic curves, and also contain several new results which cannot be found elsewhere in the literature. Owing to clarity and elegance of exposition, and to the background material explicitly included in the text or quoted in the references, the volume is well suited to research students as well as to senior mathematicians

Number theory, analysis and geometry : in memory of Serge Lang by D Goldfeld( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Serge Lang was an iconic figure in mathematics, both for his own important work and for the indelible impact he left on the field of mathematics, on his students, ¡and on his colleagues. Over the course of his career, Lang traversed a tremendous amount of mathematical ground. As he moved from subject to subject, he found analogies that led to important questions in such areas as number theory, arithmetic geometry and the theory of negatively curved spaces. Lang's conjectures will keep many mathematicians occupied far into the future. In the spirit of Lang{u2019}s vast contribution to mathematics, this memorial volume contains articles by prominent mathematicians in a variety of areas, namely number theory, analysis and geometry, representing Lang{u2019}s own breadth of interests.¡A special introduction by John Tate includes a brief and engaging account of Serge Lang{u2019}s life.

Fermat's last theorem by Kenneth Ribet( Visual )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Ribet of the Mathematics Dept. at the University of California, Berkeley summarizes the broad outlines of the proof of Fermat's last theorem. The proof depends on a construction of G. Frey which associated an implausible elliptic curve to each solution to Fermat's equation. A recent theorem of A. Wiles shows that the elliptic curve in question is "modular", i.e. is derived from a modular form. A theorem proved in 1986 allows one to obtain a contradiction ... it prevents the implausible elliptic curve from being modular
Recent progress in arithmetic algebraic geometry by Gerd Faltings( Visual )

Fermat's last theorem : the theorem and its proof, an exploration of issues and ideas( Visual )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video of a presentation at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco that took place on July 28, 1993, exactly five weeks after Andrew Wiles announced that he had a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. Also includes excerpts from an interview with Andrew Wiles made in Oxford, England, the day after he announced his proof in Cambridge. Designed for a general audience, the video deals not only with Fermat's Last Theorem itself, but with the excitement of mathematical discovery in general and the way mathematical ideas can illuminate other subjects

Modular curves and abelian varieties by J. E Cremona( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents lectures from a conference on "Modular Curves and Abelian Varieties'' at the Centre de Recerca Matemtica (Bellaterra, Barcelona). The articles in this volume present the latest achievements in this extremely active field and will be of interest both to specialists and to students and researchers. Many contributions focus on generalizations of the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture to varieties such as elliptic Q-curves and Abelian varieties of GL_2-type. The book also includes several key articles in the subject that do not correspond to conference lectures
