By C. Herbert Clemens

This superb e-book via Herb Clemens quick grew to become a favourite of many algebraic geometers while it used to be first released in 1980. it's been well liked by rookies and specialists ever due to the fact that. it really is written as a ebook of 'impressions' of a trip throughout the idea of advanced algebraic curves. Many subject matters of compelling attractiveness take place alongside the best way. A cursory look on the matters visited finds a superbly eclectic choice, from conics and cubics to theta services, Jacobians, and questions of moduli. by means of the tip of the e-book, the subject of theta capabilities turns into transparent, culminating within the Schottky challenge. The author's cause used to be to inspire additional examine and to stimulate mathematical task. The attentive reader will research a lot approximately advanced algebraic curves and the instruments used to check them. The e-book could be in particular worthwhile to an individual getting ready a path related to advanced curves or someone drawn to supplementing his/her studying.
