Geometry and topology by Miles Reid ( Book )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 716 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

Basic algebraic geometry by I. R Shafarevich ( )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 223 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
Basic algebraic geometry by I. R Shafarevich ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 214 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

Shafarevich Basic Algebraic Geometry 2 The second edition of Shafarevich's introduction to algebraic geometry is in two volumes. The second volume covers schemes and complex manifolds, generalisations in two different directions of the affine and projective varieties that form the material of the first volume. Two notable additions in this second edition are the section on moduli spaces and representable functors, motivated by a discussion of the Hilbert scheme, and the section on Khler geometry. The book ends with a historical sketch discussing the origins of algebraic geometry. From the Zentralblatt review of this volume: " ... one can only respectfully repeat what has been said about the first part of the book (...): a great textbook, written by one of the leading algebraic geometers and teachers himself, has been reworked and updated. As a result the author's standard textbook on algebraic geometry has become even more important and valuable. Students, teachers, and active researchers using methods of algebraic and complex-analytic geometry in different areas of mathematics and theoretical physics should be grateful to the author for his renewed service to the mathematical community."
Algebra I : basic notions of algebra by I. R Shafarevich ( Book )
7 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews: "This is one of the few mathematical books, the reviewer has read from cover to cover ... The main merit is that nearly on every page you will find some unexpected insights..." Zentralblatt für Mathematik und Ihre Grenzgebiete, 1991 "...which I read like a novel and undoubtedly will become a classic. ... A merit of the book under review is that it contains several important articles from journals which are not all so easily accessible. ... Furthermore, at the end of the book, there are some Notes by the author which are indispensible for the necessary historical background information. ... This valuable book should be on the shelf of every algebraist and algebraic geometer." Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde, 1992 "... There are few proofs in full, but there is an exhilarating combination of sureness of foot and lightness of touch in the exposition ... which transports the reader effortlessly across the whole spectrum of algebra.... The challenge to Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?" is, all too often, the reaction of students when introduced to the bare bones of the concepts and constructs of modern algebra. Shafarevich's book - which reads as comfortably as an extended essay - breathes life into the skeleton and will be of interest to many classes of readers..." The Mathematical Gazette, 1991 "... According to the preface, the book is addressed to "students of mathematics in the first years of an undergraduate course, or theoretical physicists or mathematicians from outside algebra wanting to get an impression of the spirit of algebra and its place in mathematics." I think that this promise is fully justified. The beginner, the experts and also the interested scientist who had contact with algebraic notions - all will read this exceptional book with great pleasure and benefit." Zeitschrift für Kristallographie, 1991

Solitons : differential equations, symmetries, and infinite dimensional algebras by T Miwa ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 31 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
The harp of Salem a collection of historical poems, from the Scriptures : together with some reflective pieces by Miles Reid ( )
2 editions published in 1827 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Commutative ring theory by Hideyuki Matsumura ( Book )
7 editions published between 1989 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In addition to being an interesting and profound subject in its own right, commutative ring theory is important as a foundation for algebraic geometry and complex analytical geometry. Matsumura covers the basic material, including dimension theory, depth, Cohen-Macaulay rings, Gorenstein rings, Krull rings and valuation rings. More advanced topics such as Ratliff's theorems on chains of prime ideals are also explored. The work is essentially self-contained, the only prerequisite being a sound knowledge of modern algebra, yet the reader is taken to the frontiers of the subject. Exercises are provided at the end of each section and solutions or hints to some of them are given at the end of the book
Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry ( )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume honors Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer's mathematical career spanning more than 60 years' of amazing creativity in number theory and algebraic geometry
Abregé de la chronologie des anciens Royaumes by Isaac Newton ( Book )
2 editions published in 1743 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geometries and groups by V. V Nikulin ( Book )
2 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 10 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."
Fokke & Sukke. Het afzien van 2010 by Miles Reid ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in Dutch and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Voor de elfde "Afzien van ..." zijn de auteurs iets speciaals van plan. Wat? Dat weten ze zelf ook nog niet. Het is in ieder geval de bedoeling om de eerste editie van "Het afzien van 2010" al op 11 november 2010 te lanceren
Age cannot wither by Miles Reid ( Book )
2 editions published in 1944 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anthony Caro. Drawing in Space / Interior and Exterior / Figurative and Narrative Sculpture. 3 vols by Miles Reid ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the mid-1950s, when Anthony Caro first announced himself as a young sculptor to be reckoned with, he has restlessly explored an unpredictable range of sculptural possibilities, testing limits and positing new ideas about the nature of eloquent three-dimensional objects. Through his expansion and transformation of the legacy of construction in metal pioneered by Julio González and Pablo Picasso, and further developed by David Smith in the USA, Caro has created a new, multivalent language of three-dimensional abstraction. The three volumes in this set, each by a different critic, examine the various aspects of Caro's evolution individually, tracing the permutations of different themes - narrative, volume and mass, line and openness - throughout his work, over time. Each volume is independent and explores different territory, but cumulatively, by tracing these dominant themes, they provide new insight into the achievement of one of the undisputed giants of modernist art
