Download An Introduction to the Langlands Program by Joseph Bernstein, Stephen Gelbart, S.S. Kudla, E. Kowalski, PDF

By Joseph Bernstein, Stephen Gelbart, S.S. Kudla, E. Kowalski, E. de Shalit, D. Gaitsgory, J.W. Cogdell, D. Bump

For the earlier numerous a long time the speculation of automorphic types has turn into an important point of interest of improvement in quantity concept and algebraic geometry, with purposes in lots of different components, together with combinatorics and mathematical physics.

The twelve chapters of this monograph current a vast, basic advent to the Langlands application, that's, the speculation of automorphic kinds and its reference to the idea of L-functions and different fields of arithmetic.

Key positive factors of this self-contained presentation:

numerous components in quantity idea from the classical zeta functionality as much as the Langlands application are coated.

The exposition is systematic, with each one bankruptcy concentrating on a selected subject dedicated to specified circumstances of this system:

• simple zeta functionality of Riemann and its generalizations to Dirichlet and Hecke L-functions, type box conception and a few subject matters on classical automorphic functions (E. Kowalski)

• A learn of the conjectures of Artin and Shimura–Taniyama–Weil (E. de Shalit)

• An exam of classical modular (automorphic) L-functions as GL(2) capabilities, bringing into play the speculation of representations (S.S. Kudla)

• Selberg's idea of the hint formulation, that's the way to examine automorphic representations (D. Bump)

• dialogue of cuspidal automorphic representations of GL(2,(A)) ends up in Langlands concept for GL(n) and the significance of the Langlands twin workforce (J.W. Cogdell)

• An advent to the geometric Langlands application, a brand new and energetic sector of study that enables utilizing robust tools of algebraic geometry to build automorphic sheaves (D. Gaitsgory)

Graduate scholars and researchers will take advantage of this gorgeous text.

Download Rigid Cohomology over Laurent Series Fields by Christopher Lazda, Ambrus Pál PDF

By Christopher Lazda, Ambrus Pál

In this monograph, the authors enhance a brand new idea of p-adic cohomology for forms over Laurent sequence fields in optimistic attribute, in accordance with Berthelot's concept of inflexible cohomology. Many significant basic homes of those cohomology teams are confirmed, resembling finite dimensionality and cohomological descent, in addition to interpretations by way of Monsky-Washnitzer cohomology and Le Stum's overconvergent web site. functions of this new idea to mathematics questions, similar to l-independence and the load monodromy conjecture, also are discussed.

The development of those cohomology teams, analogous to the Galois representations linked to types over neighborhood fields in combined attribute, fills an incredible hole within the learn of mathematics cohomology theories over functionality fields. by way of extending the scope of latest equipment, the consequences awarded right here additionally function a primary step in the direction of a extra basic thought of p-adic cohomology over non-perfect flooring fields.

Rigid Cohomology over Laurent sequence Fields will supply a great tool for an individual drawn to the mathematics of types over neighborhood fields of optimistic attribute. Appendices on vital historical past fabric similar to inflexible cohomology and adic areas make it as self-contained as attainable, and an awesome place to begin for graduate scholars trying to discover facets of the classical conception of inflexible cohomology and with a watch in the direction of destiny learn within the subject.

Download Ramanujan's Lost Notebook by George E. Andrews PDF

By George E. Andrews

In the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania country collage visited the library at Trinity university, Cambridge, to envision the papers of the past due G.N. Watson. between those papers, Andrews stumbled on a sheaf of 138 pages within the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. This manuscript used to be quickly special, "Ramanujan's misplaced notebook." Its discovery has often been deemed the mathematical an identical of discovering Beethoven's 10th symphony.

The "lost laptop" comprises significant fabric on mock theta capabilities and so definitely emanates from the final 12 months of Ramanujan's existence. it may be emphasised that the cloth on mock theta services might be Ramanujan's private paintings. Mathematicians are most likely a number of a long time clear of a whole knowing of these features. greater than half the fabric within the publication is on q-series, together with mock theta capabilities; the rest half offers with theta functionality identities, modular equations, incomplete elliptic integrals of the 1st sort and different integrals of theta services, Eisenstein sequence, specific values of theta features, the Rogers-Ramanujan persevered fraction, different q-continued fractions, different integrals, and elements of Hecke's thought of modular forms.

Download The semi-simple zeta function of quaternionic Shimura by Harry Reimann PDF

By Harry Reimann

This monograph is worried with the Shimura type hooked up to a quaternion algebra over a wholly genuine quantity box. For anyplace of fine (or reasonably undesirable) aid, the corresponding (semi-simple) neighborhood zeta functionality is expressed by way of (semi-simple) neighborhood L-functions hooked up to automorphic representations. In an appendix a conjecture of Langlands and Rapoport at the relief of a Shimura type in a truly normal case is restated in a touch more advantageous shape. The reader is predicted to be accustomed to the fundamental options of algebraic geometry, algebraic quantity concept and the idea of automorphic representation.

Download Algebraic Geometry: A First Course by Joe Harris PDF

By Joe Harris

This e-book is predicated on one-semester classes given at Harvard in 1984, at Brown in 1985, and at Harvard in 1988. it's meant to be, because the identify indicates, a primary advent to the topic. nonetheless, a couple of phrases are so as concerning the reasons of the e-book. Algebraic geometry has built greatly over the past century. through the nineteenth century, the topic was once practiced on a comparatively concrete, down-to-earth point; the most gadgets of research have been projective types, and the innovations for the main half have been grounded in geometric structures. This procedure flourished in the course of the center of the century and reached its end result within the paintings of the Italian tuition round the finish of the nineteenth and the start of the 20 th centuries. eventually, the topic used to be driven past the boundaries of its foundations: by means of the tip of its interval the Italian tuition had improved to the purpose the place the language and strategies of the topic may perhaps not serve to specific or perform the tips of its top practitioners.

Download Abelian Varieties, Theta Functions and the Fourier Transform by Alexander Polishchuk PDF

By Alexander Polishchuk

This publication is a latest remedy of the idea of theta services within the context of algebraic geometry. the newness of its technique lies within the systematic use of the Fourier-Mukai rework. Alexander Polishchuk begins through discussing the classical idea of theta services from the point of view of the illustration conception of the Heisenberg workforce (in which the standard Fourier remodel performs the favorite role). He then indicates that during the algebraic method of this idea (originally as a result of Mumford) the Fourier-Mukai remodel can usually be used to simplify the present proofs or to supply thoroughly new proofs of many vital theorems. This incisive quantity is for graduate scholars and researchers with robust curiosity in algebraic geometry.
