Arithmetic and Geometry of K3 Surfaces and Calabi–Yau by Radu Laza,Matthias Schütt,Noriko Yui

By Radu Laza,Matthias Schütt,Noriko Yui

In contemporary years, examine in K3 surfaces and Calabi–Yau forms has obvious excellent development from either mathematics and geometric issues of view, which in flip maintains to have a massive impression and effect in theoretical physics—in specific, in string thought. The workshop on  mathematics and Geometry of  K3 surfaces and Calabi–Yau threefolds, held on the Fields Institute (August 16-25, 2011), aimed to provide a state of the art survey of those new advancements. This complaints quantity encompasses a consultant sampling of the wide variety of issues coated via the workshop. whereas the topics diversity from mathematics geometry via algebraic geometry and differential geometry to mathematical physics, the papers are certainly similar by means of the typical subject of Calabi–Yau types. With the wide variety of branches of arithmetic and mathematical physics touched upon, this sector finds many deep connections among topics formerly thought of unrelated.


Unlike such a lot different meetings, the 2011 Calabi–Yau workshop all started with three days of introductory lectures. a variety of four of those lectures is incorporated during this quantity. those lectures can be utilized as a place to begin for the graduate scholars and different junior researchers, or as a consultant to the topic.

A Comprehensive Treatment of q-Calculus

Thus far, the theoretical improvement of q-calculus has rested on a non-uniform foundation. regularly, the cumbersome Gasper-Rahman notation used to be used, however the released works on q-calculus appeared assorted reckoning on the place and by way of whom they have been written. This confusion of tongues not just complex the theoretical improvement but additionally contributed to q-calculus last a ignored mathematical box.

Algebra (Springer-Lehrbuch) (German Edition)

Ausgehend von einer grundlegenden Einführung in Begriffe und Methoden der Algebra werden im Buch die wesentlichen Ergebnisse dargestellt und ein Einblick in viele Entwicklungen innerhalb der Algebra gegeben, die mit anderen Gebieten der Mathematik stark verflochten sind. Beginnend mit Begriffsbildungen wie Gruppe und Ring führt das Buch hin zu den Körpererweiterungen und der Galoistheorie.

Introduction to Abelian Model Structures and Gorenstein Homological Dimensions (Monographs and Research Notes in Mathematics)

Advent to Abelian version buildings and Gorenstein Homological Dimensions presents a kick off point to check the connection among homological and homotopical algebra, a really lively department of arithmetic. The booklet indicates the way to receive new version constructions in homological algebra by way of developing a couple of appropriate whole cotorsion pairs with regards to a selected homological size after which utilising the Hovey Correspondence to generate an abelian version constitution.
