Programming in Qlisp : a case study by Arkady Rabinov( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We describe the results of some experiments with Qlisp--an extension of common Lisp for shared memory multiprocessors. The experiments involved several parallel implementations of the modular univariate polynomial greatest common divisor algorithm in Qlisp on an Alliant Fx/8 multiprocessor. These implementations are described and the requisite Qlisp constructs are described and explained (largely by example). The performance of the parallel implementations is analyzed and some areas of future improvement in the current Qlisp implementation and the algorithm are found

Basic algebraic geometry by I. R Shafarevich( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Shafarevich's Basic Algebraic Geometry has been a classic and universally used introduction to the subject since its first appearance over 40 years ago. As the translator writes in a prefatory note, ``For all [advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate] students, and for the many specialists in other branches of math who need a liberal education in algebraic geometry, Shafarevichs book is a must.'' The second volume is in two parts: Book II is a gentle cultural introduction to scheme theory, with the first aim of putting abstract algebraic varieties on a firm foundation; a second aim is to introduce Hilbert schemes and moduli spaces, that serve as parameter spaces for other geometric constructions. Book III discusses complex manifolds and their relation with algebraic varieties, Khler geometry and Hodge theory. The final section raisesan important problem in uniformising higher dimensional varieties that has been widely studied as the ``Shafarevich conjecture''. The style of Basic Algebraic Geometry 2 and its minimal prerequisites make it to a large extent independent of Basic Algebraic Geometry 1, and accessible to beginning graduate students in mathematics and in theoretical physics
