Algebraic curves, an introduction to algebraic geometry by William Fulton ( Book )
57 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Intersection theory by William Fulton ( Book )
28 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and German and held by 761 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 )

Algebraic topology : a first course by William Fulton ( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 627 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
Schubert varieties and degeneracy loci by William Fulton ( Book )
11 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 431 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

Young tableaux : with applications to representation theory and geometry by William Fulton ( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describes combinatorics involving Young tableaux and their uses in representation theory and algebraic geometry

Typical dynamics of volume preserving homeomorphisms by Steve Alpern ( )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a self-contained introduction to typical properties of volume preserving homeomorphisms. Stress is given to the interrelation between typical properties of volume preserving homeomorphisms and typical properties of volume preserving bijections of the underlying measure space. An excellent introduction for newcomers, and an indispensable resource for experts

Floer homology groups in Yang-Mills theory by S. K Donaldson ( )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation This monograph gives a thorough exposition of Floer's seminal work during the 1980s from a contemporary viewpoint. The material contained here was developed with specific applications in mind. However, it has now become clear that the techniques used are important for many current areas of research. An important example would be symplectic theory and gluing problems for self-dual metrics and other metrics with special holonomy. The author writes with the big picture constantly in mind. As well as a review of the current state of knowledge, there are sections on the likely direction of future research. Included in this are connections between Floer groups and the celebrated Seiberg-Witten invariants. The results described in this volume form part of the area known as Donaldson theory. The significance of this work is such that the author was awarded the prestigious Fields Medal for his contribution
Harmonic Maps, Conservation Laws and Moving Frames by Frdric Hlein ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 12 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. The book will be of particular interest to graduate students and researchers in geometry, analysis of partial differential equations and mathematical physics
Completely bounded maps and operator algebras by Vern I Paulsen ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 9 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
Lectures in logic and set theory by George J Tourlakis ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 8 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
Approximation by algebraic numbers by Yann Bugeaud ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An accessible and broad account of the approximation and classification of real numbers suited for graduate courses on Diophantine approximation (some 40 exercises are supplied), or as an introduction for non-experts. Specialists will appreciate the collection of over 50 open problems and the comprehensive list of more than 600 references
