Abelian varieties with complex multiplication and modular functions by
Gorō Shimura(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reciprocity laws of various kinds play a central role in number theory. In the easiest case, one obtains a transparent formulation by means of roots of unity, which are special values of exponential functions. A similar theory can be developed for special values of elliptic or elliptic modular functions, and is called complex multiplication of such functions. In 1900 Hilbert proposed the generalization of these as the twelfth of his famous problems. In this book, Goro Shimura provides the most comprehensive generalizations of this type by stating several reciprocity laws in terms of abelian varieties, theta functions, and modular functions of several variables, including Siegel modular functions. This subject is closely connected with the zeta function of an abelian variety, which is also covered as a main theme in the book. The third topic explored by Shimura is the various algebraic relations among the periods of abelian integrals. The investigation of such algebraicity is relatively new, but has attracted the interest of increasingly many researchers. Many of the topics discussed in this book have not been covered before. In particular, this is the first book in which the topics of various algebraic relations among the periods of abelian integrals, as well as the special values of theta and Siegel modular functions, are treated extensively

Euler products and Eisenstein series by
Gorō Shimura(
Book
)
12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume has three chief objectives: 1) the determination of local Euler factors on classical groups in an explicit rational form; 2) Euler products and Eisenstein series on a unitary group of an arbitrary signature; and 3) a class number formula for a totally definite hermitian form. Though these are new results that have never before been published, Shimura starts with a quite general setting. He includes many topics of an expository nature so that the book can be viewed as an introduction to the theory of automorphic forms of several variables, Hecke theory in particular. Eventually, the exposition is specialized to unitary groups, but they are treated as a model case so that the reader can easily formulate the corresponding facts for other groups

Arithmetic of quadratic forms by
Gorō Shimura(
Book
)
18 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To make the book concise, the author proves some basic theorems in number theory only in some special cases. However, the book is selfcontained when the base field is the rational number field, and the main theorems are stated with an arbitrary number field as the base field. So the reader familiar with clwass field theory will be able to learn the arithmetic theory of quadratic forms with no further references Book Jacket

Modular forms : basics and beyond by
Gorō Shimura(
Book
)
16 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is an advanced book on modular forms. While there are many books published about modular forms, they are written at an elementary level, and not so interesting from the viewpoint of a reader who already knows the℗¡basics. This book offers something new, which may satisfy the desire of such a reader. However, we state every definition and every essential fact concerning classical modular forms of one variable. One of the principal new features of this book is the theory of modular forms of halfintegral weight, another being the discussion of theta functions and Eisenstein series of holomorphic and nonholomorphic types. Thus the book is presented so that the reader can learn such theories systematically. Ultimately, we concentrate on the following two themes: (I) The correspondence between the forms of halfintegral weight and those of integral weight. (II) The arithmeticity of various Dirichlet series associated with modular forms of integral or halfintegral weight. Goro Shimura is currently a professor emeritus of mathematics at Princeton University

The map of my life by
Gorō Shimura(
)
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"In this book, the author writes freely and often humorously about his life, beginning with his earliest childhood days. He describes his survival of American bombing raids when he was a teenager in Japan, his emergence as a researcher in a postwar university system that was seriously, deficient, and his life as a mature mathematician in Princeton and in the international academic community. Every page of this memoir contains personal observations and striking stories. Such luminaries as Chevalley, Oppenheimer, Siegel, and Weil figure prominently in its anecdotes."Jacket
