An Algebraic Introduction to Complex Projective Geometry: Commutative Algebra

During this advent to commutative algebra, the writer choses a path that leads the reader throughout the crucial principles, with no getting embroiled in technicalities. he's taking the reader fast to the basics of advanced projective geometry, requiring just a simple wisdom of linear and multilinear algebra and a few straight forward workforce idea.

Inequalities : a Mathematical Olympiad approach

This publication is meant for the Mathematical Olympiad scholars who desire to arrange for the research of inequalities, a subject matter now of common use at a variety of degrees of mathematical competitions. during this quantity we current either vintage inequalities and the extra important inequalities for confronting and fixing optimization difficulties.

Recent Progress in Algebra: An International Conference on Recent Progress in Algebra, August 11-15, 1997, Kaist, Taejon, South Korea

This quantity offers the complaints of the overseas convention on ""Recent growth in Algebra"" that used to be held on the Korea complicated Institute of technology and know-how (KAIST) and Korea Institute for complex learn (KIAS). It introduced jointly specialists within the box to debate growth in algebra, combinatorics, algebraic geometry and quantity conception.
