Arithmetic moduli of elliptic curves by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
15 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work is a comprehensive treatment of recent developments in the study of elliptic curves and their moduli spaces. The arithmetic study of the moduli spaces began with Jacobi's "Fundamenta Nova" in 1829, and the modern theory was erected by EichlerShimura, Igusa, and DeligneRapoport. In the past decade mathematicians have made further substantial progress in the field. This book gives a complete account of that progress, including not only the work of the authors, but also that of Deligne and Drinfeld

Exponential sums and differential equations by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is concerned with two areas of mathematics, at first sight disjoint, and with some of the analogies and interactions between them. These areas are the theory of linear differential equations in one complex variable with polynomial coefficients, and the theory of one parameter families of exponential sums over finite fields. After reviewing some results from representation theory, the book discusses results about differential equations and their differential galois groups (G) and oneparameter families of exponential sums and their geometric monodromy groups (G). The final part of the book is devoted to comparison theorems relating G and G of suitably "corresponding" situations, which provide a systematic explanation of the remarkable "coincidences" found "by hand" in the hypergeometric case

Gauss sums, Kloosterman sums, and monodromy groups by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The study of exponential sums over finite fields, begun by Gauss nearly two centuries ago, has been completely transformed in recent years by advances in algebraic geometry, culminating in Deligne's work on the Weil Conjectures. It now appears as a very attractive mixture of algebraic geometry, representation theory, and the sheaftheoretic incarnations of such standard constructions of classical analysis as convolution and Fourier transform. The book is simultaneously an account of some of these ideas, techniques, and results, and an account of their application to concrete equidistribution questions concerning Kloosterman sums and Gauss sums

Rigid local systems by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Riemann introduced the concept of a "local system" on P1{a finite set of points} nearly 140 years ago. His idea was to study nth order linear differential equations by studying the rank n local systems (of local holomorphic solutions) to which they gave rise. His first application was to study the classical Gauss hypergeometric function, which he did by studying ranktwo local systems on P1 {0,1,infinity}. His investigation was successful, largely because any such (irreducible) local system is rigid in the sense that it is globally determined as soon as one knows separately each of its local monodromies. It became clear that luck played a role in Riemann's success: most local systems are not rigid. Yet many classical functions are solutions of differential equations whose local systems are rigid, including both of the standard nth order generalizations of the hypergeometric function, n F n1's, and the Pochhammer hypergeometric functions. This book is devoted to constructing all (irreducible) rigid local systems on P1{a finite set of points} and recognizing which collections of independently given local monodromies arise as the local monodromies of irreducible rigid local systems. Although the problems addressed here go back to Riemann, and seem to be problems in complex analysis, their solutions depend essentially on a great deal of very recent arithmetic algebraic geometry, including Grothendieck's etale cohomology theory, Deligne's proof of his farreaching generalization of the original Weil Conjectures, the theory of perverse sheaves, and Laumon's work on the ladic Fourier Transform

Twisted Lfunctions and monodromy by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For hundreds of years, the study of elliptic curves has played a central role in mathematics. The past century in particular has seen huge progress in this study, from Mordell's theorem in 1922 to the work of Wiles and TaylorWiles in 1994. Nonetheless, there remain many fundamental questions where we do not even know what sort of answers to expect. This book explores two of them: What is the average rank of elliptic curves, and how does the rank vary in various kinds of families of elliptic curves?Nicholas Katz answers these questions for families of ''big'' twists of elliptic curves in the f

Moments, monodromy, and perversity : a diophantine perspective by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is now some thirty years since Deligne first proved his general equidistribution theorem, thus establishing the fundamental result governing the statistical properties of suitably ""pure"" algebrogeometric families of character sums over finite fields (and of their associated Lfunctions). Roughly speaking, Deligne showed that any such family obeys a ""generalized SatoTate law,"" and that figuring out which generalized SatoTate law applies to a given family amounts essentially to computing a certain complex semisimple (not necessarily connected) algebraic group, the ""geometric monodromy

Convolution and equidistribution : SatoTate theorems for finitefield Mellin transforms by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
16 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Convolution and Equidistribution explores an important aspect of number theorythe theory of exponential sums over finite fields and their Mellin transformsfrom a new, categorical point of view. The book presents fundamentally important results and a plethora of examples, opening up new directions in the subject. The finitefield Mellin transform (of a function on the multiplicative group of a finite field) is defined by summing that function against variable multiplicative characters. The basic question considered in the book is how the values of the Mellin transform are distributed (in a

The Grothendieck Festschrift : a collection of articles written in honor of the 60th birthday of Alexander Grothendieck by
P Cartier(
Book
)
32 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 54 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 topnotch contributors match the breadth of Grothendieck's own interests, including: functional analysis, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, number theory, representation theory, Ktheory, 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.
