8. Geometric Invariant Theory (Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 2. Folge) by David Mumford, John Fogarty, Frances Kirwan | |

Editorial Review Product Description “Geometric Invariant Theory” by Mumford/Fogarty (the first edition was published in 1965, a second, enlarged edition appeared in 1982) is the standard reference on applications of invariant theory to the construction of moduli spaces. This third, revised edition has been long awaited for by the mathematical community. It is now appearing in a completely updated and enlarged version with an additional chapter on the moment map by Prof. Frances Kirwan (Oxford) and a fully updated bibliography of work in this area. The book deals firstly with actions of algebraic groups on algebraic varieties, separating orbits by invariants and construction quotient spaces; and secondly with applications of this theory to the construction of moduli spaces. It is a systematic exposition of the geometric aspects of the classical theory of polynomial invariants. |

Editorial Review Product Description The second in a series of three volumes surveying the theory of theta functions, this volume gives emphasis to the special properties of the theta functions associated with compact Riemann surfaces and how they lead to solutions of the Korteweg-de-Vries equations as well as other non-linear differential equations of mathematical physics. This book presents an explicit elementary construction of hyperelliptic Jacobian varieties and is a self-contained introduction to the theory of the Jacobians. It also ties together nineteenth-century discoveries due to Jacobi, Neumann, and Frobenius with recent discoveries of Gelfand, McKean, Moser, John Fay, and others. A definitive body of information and research on the subject of theta functions, this volume will be a useful addition to individual and mathematics research libraries. |

12. Singular Sets of Minimizers for the Mumford-Shah Functional (Progress in Mathematics) by Guy David | |

Editorial Review Product Description Award-winning monograph of the Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer Prize 2004. This book studies regularity properties of Mumford-Shah minimizers. The Mumford-Shah functional was introduced in the 1980s as a tool for automatic image segmentation, but its study gave rise to many interesting questions of analysis and geometric measure theory. The main object under scrutiny is a free boundary K where the minimizer may have jumps. The book presents an extensive description of the known regularity properties of the singular sets K, and the techniques to get them. Some time is spent on the C^1 regularity theorem (with an essentially unpublished proof in dimension 2), but a good part of the book is devoted to applications of A. Bonnet's monotonicity and blow-up techniques. In particular, global minimizers in the plane are studied in full detail. |

Excellent Some of the more interesting and well-motivated discussions in the book include:1. The author uses an `analytic' version of the implicit function theorem to show that the Zariski open set of smooth points on an affine variety has the structure of a complex manifold. The Zariski topology has been viewed as somewhat "mysterious" by some beginning students, so this characterization clears this up to some degree. 2. The need for the group of divisors and the resulting Picard group. This is done to make up for the fact that for a smooth variety X, the affine coordinate ring R(X) is not a unique factorization domain (UFD). The author describes this situation as being analogous to the one in algebraic number fields where the UFD property must be weakened to that of decomposing principal ideals into products of prime ideals. The Picard group is then the group of divisors modulo the principal divisors, and then R(X) is a UFD if and only if the Picard group is zero. 3. The discussion on Chow's theorem. The author motivates this famous result by asking to what extent the general theory of complex analytic spaces parallels the theory of algebraic varieties. The difficulty, he explains, is that in algebraic geometry one deals with rational functions, which do not have essential singularities like analytic functions do. The author discusses a case where no essential singularities occur, his example dealing with `analytic' and `*-analytic' subsets of complex n-space. Loosely speaking, analytic sets are essentially zero sets of analytic functions, whereas *-analytic sets can be represented as the union of complex submanifolds. He shows that a set is *-analytic if and only if it is analytic, and from this result follows Chow's theorem, which states that the only complex analytic subsets of n-dimensional projective space are algebraic varieties. Chow's theorem is a generalization of the result in complex variable theory that says that the only meromorphic functions on the extended complex plane are rational functions. 4. A natural question to ask when studying algebraic varieties is whether they have a "size", i.e. a volume or area of some sort. For r-dimensional subvarieties of n-dimensional projective space, the author proves that one can define the 2r-dimensional volume of the variety, and this is accomplished via a Riemannian metric on n-dimensional projective space. This metric only depends on r and the degree of the variety, and is in fact the famous Kahler metric. The author goes on to characterize algebraic varieties as minimal submanifolds of n-dimensional projective space, using the tools of DeRham cohomology. The volume result is then generalized to that of compact oriented submanifolds of n-dimensional projective space, with the first result holding when the submanifold is an algebraic subvariety. 5. The treatment of the Hilbert polynomial. The author motivates this in the context of the calculation of the dimension of the vector space of functions with poles at most a given divisor. He proves an explicit formula for the Hilbert polynomial for r-dimensional subvarieties of n-dimensional projective space. He also shows how the constant term of the Hilbert polynomial is related to the `arithmetic genus' of a projective variety. The arithmetic genus is then shown to be equal to the topological genus for smooth curves, this being the famous Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch theorem in dimension one. His proof of this result is very detailed and actually quite fun to work through and read, as it does not depend on the theory of harmonic forms. 6. For those who are interested in the theory of elliptic curves, the author gives an elementary overview of their properties. ... Read more |
