Download From Classical to Modern Algebraic Geometry: Corrado Segre's by Gianfranco Casnati,Alberto Conte,Letterio Gatto,Livia PDF

By Gianfranco Casnati,Alberto Conte,Letterio Gatto,Livia Giacardi,Marina Marchisio,Alessandro Verra

This booklet commemorates the one hundred and fiftieth birthday of Corrado Segre, one of many founders of the Italian tuition of Algebraic Geometry and a very important determine within the background of Algebraic Geometry. it's the end result of a convention held in Turin, Italy.

One of the book's most unusual positive aspects is the inclusion of a formerly unpublished manuscript by way of Corrado Segre, including a systematic remark. Representing a prelude to Segre's seminal 1894 contribution at the idea of algebraic curves, this manuscript and different vital archival resources incorporated within the essays shed new gentle at the eminent position he performed on the overseas point.

Including either survey articles and unique learn papers, the booklet is split into 3 elements: part one specializes in the consequences of Segre's paintings in a old mild, whereas part provides new leads to his box, particularly Algebraic Geometry. The 3rd half gains Segre's unpublished workstation: Sulla Geometria Sugli Enti Algebrici Semplicemente Infiniti (1890-1891).

This quantity will entice students within the heritage of arithmetic, in addition to to researchers within the present subfields of Algebraic Geometry.
