Compactification of Siegel moduli schemes by Ching-Li Chai ( )
18 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Siegel moduli scheme classifies principally polarised abelian varieties and its compactification is an important result in arithmetic algebraic geometry. The main result of this monograph is to prove the existence of the toroidal compactification over Z (1/2). This result should have further applications and is presented here with sufficient background material to make the book suitable for seminar courses in algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory or automorphic forms
Degeneration of Abelian varieties by Gerd Faltings ( Book )
12 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a complete treatment of semi-abelian degenerations of abelian varieties, and their application to the construction of arithmetic compactifications of Siegel moduli space. Most results are new and have never been published before. Highlights of the book include a classification of semi-abelian schemes, construction of the toroidal and the minimal compactification over the integers, heights for abelian varieties over number fields, and Eichler integrals in several variables. The book also provides a new approach to Siegel modular forms. This work should serve as a valuable reference source for researchers and graduate students interested in algebraic geometry, Shimura varieties, or diophantine geometry
Complex multiplication and lifting problems by Ching-Li Chai ( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abelian varieties with complex multiplication lie at the origins of class field theory, and they play a central role in the contemporary theory of Shimura varieties. They are special in characteristic 0 and ubiquitous over finite fields. This book explores the relationship between such abelian varieties over finite fields and over arithmetically interesting fields of characteristic 0 via the study of several natural CM lifting problems which had previously been solved only in special cases. In addition to giving complete solutions to such questions, the authors provide numerous examples to illustrate the general theory and present a detailed treatment of many fundamental results and concepts in the arithmetic of abelian varieties, such as the Main Theorem of Complex Multiplication and its generalizations, the finer aspects of Tate's work on abelian varieties over finite fields, and deformation theory. This book provides an ideal illustration of how modern techniques in arithmetic geometry (such as descent theory, crystalline methods, and group schemes) can be fruitfully combined with class field theory to answer concrete questions about abelian varieties. It will be a useful reference for researchers and advanced graduate students at the interface of number theory and algebraic geometry. -- Provided by publisher
