Federico Gaeta (1923–2007) was once a Spanish algebraic geometer who used to be a pupil of Severi. he's thought of to be one of many founders of linkage concept, on which he released a number of key papers. After decades in a foreign country he got here again to Spain within the Eighties. He spent his final interval as a professor at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. In gratitude to him, a few of his own and mathematically shut folks in this final station, all of whom bene?ted in a single manner or one other by means of his ins- ration, have joined to edit this quantity to maintain his reminiscence alive. We o?er in it surveys and unique articles at the 3 major topics of Gaeta’s curiosity via his mathematical lifestyles. the amount opens with a private semblance through Ignacio Sols and a ancient presentation through Ciro Ciliberto of Gaeta’s Italian interval. Then it's divided into 3 components, every one of them dedicated to a speci?c topic studied via Gaeta and coordinated by means of one of many editors. for every half, we had the recommendation of one other colleague of Federico associated with that specific topic, who additionally contributed with a brief survey. The ?rst half, coordinated by way of E. Arrondo with the recommendation of R.M.

This paintings attracts jointly rules from algebraic topology, sensible research and geometry. it's a instrument - a way of conveying info between those 3 matters - and it's been used with good fortune to find theorems throughout a large span of arithmetic. the aim of this publication is to acquaint the reader with the basic principles of analytic K-homology and enhance a few of its purposes.
In providing an in depth learn of the geometry and topology of various periods of "generic" singularities, Geometry of Topological balance bridges the space among algebraic calculations and continuity arguments to element the required and adequate stipulations for a C (infinity) to be C]0-stable. all through, the authors masterfully study this crucial topic utilizing effects culled from a extensive diversity of mathematical disciplines, together with geometric topology, stratification concept, algebraic geometry, and commutative algebra.
In keeping with a graduate direction on the Technische Universität, Berlin, those lectures current a wealth of fabric at the glossy conception of convex polytopes. the simple exposition positive aspects many illustrations, and entire proofs for many theorems. With merely linear algebra as a prerequisite, it takes the reader fast from the fundamentals to issues of modern examine.
The type thought of algebraic kinds is the focal point of this booklet. This very lively zone of study continues to be constructing, yet an awesome volume of data has accrued over the last two decades. The authors aim is to supply an simply available advent to the topic. The publication begins with preparatory and conventional definitions and effects, then strikes directly to talk about numerous features of the geometry of gentle projective forms with many rational curves, and finishes in taking the 1st steps in the direction of Moris minimum version software of class of algebraic kinds via proving the cone and contraction theorems.
