Most widely held works by Miles Reid
Undergraduate algebraic geometry by Miles Reid ( Book )
40 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geometry and topology by Miles Reid ( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Geometry provides a whole range of views on the universe, serving as the inspiration, technical toolkit and ultimate goal for many branches of mathematics and physics. The book introduces the ideas of geometry, and includes a generous supply of simple explanations and examples. The treatment emphasises coordinate systems and the coordinate changes that generate symmetries. The book is based on many years' teaching experience, and is thoroughly class tested. There are copious illustrations, and each chapter ends with a wide supply of exercises. Further teaching material is available for teachers via the web, including assignable problem sheets with solutions"--Jacket
Number theory and algebraic geometry to Peter Swinnerton-Dyer on his 75th birthday by Miles Reid ( )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Undergraduate commutative algebra by Miles Reid ( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Basic algebraic geometry by I. R Shafarevich ( )
10 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries 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
Explicit birational geometry of 3-folds by Alessio Corti ( Book )
11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is an integrated suite of papers centred around applications of Mori theory to birational geometry
Basic algebraic geometry by I. R Shafarevich ( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries 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 third edition, in addition to some minor corrections, now offers a new treatment of the Riemann--Roch theorem for curves, including a proof from first principles. Shafarevich's book is an attractive and accessible introduction to algebraic geometry, suitable for beginning students and nonspecialists, and the new edition is set to remain a popular introduction to the field

Algebra I : basic notions of algebra by I. R Shafarevich ( Book )
3 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Solitons : differential equations, symmetries, and infinite dimensional algebras by T Miwa ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The goal of this book is to investigate the high degree of symmetry that lies hidden in integrable systems. To that end, differential equations arising from classical mechanics, such as the KdV equation and the KP equations, are used here by the authors to introduce the notion of an infinite dimensional transformation group acting on spaces of integrable systems. The work of M. Sato on the algebraic structure of completely integrable systems is discussed, together with developments of these ideas in the work of M. Kashiwara." "This book should be accessible to anyone with a knowledge of differential and integral calculus and elementary complex analysis, and it will be a valuable resource to the novice and expert alike."--BOOK JACKET

Basic algebraic geometry by I. R Shafarevich ( Book )

New Trends in Algebraic Geometry by Klaus Hulek ( )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seventeen articles from the most outstanding contemporary topics in algebraic geometry
Geometries and groups by V. V Nikulin ( Book )
3 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a quite exceptional book, a lively and approachable treatment of an important field of mathematics given in a masterly style. Assuming only a school background, the authors develop locally Euclidean geometries, going as far as the modular space of structures on the torus, treated in terms of Lobachevsky's non-Euclidean geometry. Each section is carefully motivated by discussion of the physical and general scientific implications of the mathematical argument, and its place in the history of mathematics and philosophy. The book is expected to find a place alongside classics such as Hilbert and Cohn-Vossen's "Geometry and the imagination" and Weyl's "Symmetry"
