Topological methods in algebraic geometry by
Friedrich Hirzebruch(
Book
)
62 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years new topological methods, especially the theory of sheaves founded by J. LERAY, have been applied successfully to algebraic geometry and to the theory of functions of several complex variables. H. CARTAN and J. P. SERRE have shown how fundamental theorems on holomorphically complete manifolds (STEIN manifolds) can be for mulated in terms of sheaf theory. These theorems imply many facts of function theory because the domains of holomorphy are holomorphically complete. They can also be applied to algebraic geometry because the complement of a hyperplane section of an algebraic manifold is holo morphically complete. J. P. SERRE has obtained important results on algebraic manifolds by these and other methods. Recently many of his results have been proved for algebraic varieties defined over a field of arbitrary characteristic. K. KODAIRA and D. C. SPENCER have also applied sheaf theory to algebraic geometry with great success. Their methods differ from those of SERRE in that they use techniques from differential geometry (harmonic integrals etc. ) but do not make any use of the theory of STEIN manifolds. M. F. ATIYAH and W. V. D. HODGE have dealt successfully with problems on integrals of the second kind on algebraic manifolds with the help of sheaf theory. I was able to work together with K. KODAIRA and D. C. SPENCER during a stay at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton from 1952 to 1954

)

"The purpose of coding theory is the design of efficient systems for the transmission of information. The mathematical treatment leads to certain finite structures: the errorcorrecting codes. Surprisingly problems which are interesting for the design of codes turn out to be closely related to problems studied partly earlier and independently in pure mathematics. In this book, examples of such connections are presented. The relation between lattices studied in number theory and geometry and errorcorrecting codes is discussed. The book provides at the same time an introduction to the theory of integral lattices and modular forms and to coding theory." "In the 2[superscript nd] edition numerous corrections and improvements have been made. More basic material has been included to make the text even more selfcontained. A new section on automorphism groups related to the Leech lattice has been added. Some hints to new results have been incorporated. Finally, several new exercises have been added."BOOK JACKET

Miscellanea mathematica by
Michael Francis Atiyah(
Book
)
14 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematics has a certain mystique, for it is pure and ex act, yet demands remarkable creativity. This reputation is reinforced by its characteristic abstraction and its own in dividual language, which often disguise its origins in and connections with the physical world. Publishing mathematics, therefore, requires special effort and talent. Heinz Gotze, who has dedicated his life to scientific pu blishing, took up this challenge with his typical enthusi asm. This Festschrift celebrates his invaluable contribu tions to the mathematical community, many of whose leading members he counts among his personal friends. The articles, written by mathematicians from around the world and coming from diverse fields, portray the important role of mathematics in our culture. Here, the reflections of important mathematicians, often focused on the history of mathematics, are collected, in recognition of Heinz Gotze's lifelong support of mathematics

During the winter term 1987/88 I gave a course at the University of Bonn under the title "Manifolds and Modular Forms". I wanted to develop the theory of "Elliptic Genera" and to learn it myself on this occasion. This theory due to Ochanine, Landweber, Stong and others was relatively new at the time. The word "genus" is meant in the sense of my book "Neue Topologische Methoden in der Algebraischen Geometrie" published in 1956: A genus is a homomorphism of the Thorn cobordism ring of oriented compact manifolds into the complex numbers. Fundamental examples are the signature and the Agenus. The Agenus equals the arithmetic genus of an algebraic manifold, provided the first Chern class of the manifold vanishes. According to Atiyah and Singer it is the index of the Dirac operator on a compact Riemannian manifold with spin structure. The elliptic genera depend on a parameter. For special values of the parameter one obtains the signature and the Agenus. Indeed, the universal elliptic genus can be regarded as a modular form with respect to the subgroup r (2) of the modular group; the two cusps 0 giving the signature and the Agenus. Witten and other physicists have given motivations for the elliptic genus by theoretical physics using the free loop space of a manifold

Arbeitstagung Bonn 2013 : in memory of Friedrich Hirzebruch by
Werner Ballmann(
)
4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains selected papers authored by speakers and participants of the 2013 Arbeitstagung, held at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, Germany, from May 2228. The 2013 meeting (and this resulting proceedings) was dedicated to the memory of Friedrich Hirzebruch, who passed away on May 27, 2012. Hirzebruch organized the first Arbeitstagung in 1957 with a unique concept that would become its most distinctive feature: the program was not determined beforehand by the organizers, but during the meeting by all participants in an open discussion. This ensured that the talks would be on the latest developments in mathematics and that many important results were presented at the conference for the first time. Written by leading mathematicians, the papers in this volume cover various topics from algebraic geometry, topology, analysis, operator theory, and representation theory and display the breadth and depth of pure mathematics that has always been characteristic of the Arbeitstagung. (4e de couv.)
