Algebraic curves, an introduction to algebraic geometry by William Fulton( Book )

58 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intersection theory by William Fulton( Book )

32 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the ancient origins of algebraic geometry in the solutions of polynomial equations, through the triumphs of algebraic geometry during the last two centuries, intersection theory has played a central role. The aim of this book is to develop the foundations of this theory, and to indicate the range of classical and modern applications. Although a comprehensive history of this vast subject is not attempted, the author points out some of the striking early appearances of the ideas of intersection theory. A suggested prerequisite for the reading of this book is a first course in algebraic geometry. Fulton's introduction to intersection theory has been well used for more than 10 years. It is still the only existing complete modern treatise of the subject and received the Steele Prize for best exposition in August 1996
Representation theory : a first course by William Fulton( Book )

41 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary goal of these lectures is to introduce a beginner to the finite-dimensional representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras. Intended to serve non-specialists, the concentration of the text is on examples. The general theory is developed sparingly, and then mainly as useful and unifying language to describe phenomena already encountered in concrete cases. The book begins with a brief tour through representation theory of finite groups, with emphasis determined by what is useful for Lie groups. The focus then turns to Lie groups and Lie algebras and finally to the heart of the course: working out the finite dimensional representations of the classical groups. The goal of the last portion of the book is to make a bridge between the example-oriented approach of the earlier parts and the general theory. -- PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
Algebraic topology : a first course by William Fulton( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces the important ideas of algebraic topology by emphasizing the relation of these ideas with other areas of mathematics. Rather than choosing one point of view of modern topology (homotropy theory, axiomatic homology, or differential topology, say) the author concentrates on concrete problems in spaces with a few dimensions, introducing only as much algebraic machinery as necessary for the problems encountered. This makes it possible to see a wider variety of important features in the subject than is common in introductory texts; it is also in harmony with the historical development of the subject. The book is aimed at students who do not necessarily intend on specializing in algebraic topology
Riemann-Roch algebra by William Fulton( Book )

Describes combinatorics involving Young tableaux and their uses in representation theory and algebraic geometry
Introduction to intersection theory in algebraic geometry by William Fulton( Book )

Schubert varieties and degeneracy loci by William Fulton( Book )

20 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schubert varieties and degeneracy loci have a long history in mathematics, starting from questions about loci of matrices with given ranks. These notes, from a summer school in Thurnau, aim to give an introduction to these topics, and to describe recent progress on these problems. There are interesting interactions with the algebra of symmetric functions and combinatorics, as well as the geometry of flag manifolds and intersection theory and algebraic geometry

Affine Hecke algebras and orthogonal polynomials by I. G Macdonald( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A satisfactory and coherent theory of orthogonal polynomials in several variables, attached to root systems, and depending on two or more parameters, has developed in recent years. This comprehensive account of the subject provides a unified foundation for the theory to which I.G. Macdonald has been a principal contributor. The first four chapters lead up to Chapter 5 which contains all the main results
Lectures in logic and set theory by George J Tourlakis( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides the reader with a solid foundation in set theory, while the inclusion of topics such as absoluteness, relative consistency results, two expositions of Godel's constructible universe, numerous ways of viewing recursion, and a chapter on Cohen forcing, will usher the advanced reader to the doorstep of the research literature
Completely bounded maps and operator algebras by Vern I Paulsen( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a self-contained introduction to the principal results and ideas in the theories of completely positive maps, completely bounded maps, dilation theory, operator spaces and operator algebras, plus some of their main applications. An indispensable introduction to the theory of operator spaces for graduate students and experts alike
Harmonic Maps, Conservation Laws and Moving Frames by Frdric Hlein( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An accessible and self-contained introduction to harmonic map theory and its analytical aspects, covering recent developments in the regularity theory of weakly harmonic maps.
