By Julian Lowell Coolidge

Students and academics will welcome the go back of this unabridged reprint of 1 of the 1st English-language texts to provide complete insurance of algebraic aircraft curves. It deals complicated scholars an in depth, thorough creation and heritage to the speculation of algebraic airplane curves and their kinfolk to numerous fields of geometry and analysis.
The textual content treats such themes because the topological homes of curves, the Riemann-Roch theorem, and all points of a wide selection of curves together with actual, covariant, polar, containing sequence of a given style, elliptic, hyperelliptic, polygonal, reducible, rational, the pencil, two-parameter nets, the Laguerre internet, and nonlinear platforms of curves. it's nearly completely restrained to the houses of the overall curve instead of an in depth learn of curves of the 3rd or fourth order. The textual content mainly employs algebraic method, with huge parts written in line with the spirit and strategies of the Italian geometers. Geometric tools are a lot hired, even if, specially these regarding the projective geometry of hyperspace.
Readers will locate this quantity plentiful guidance for the symbolic notation of Aronhold and Clebsch.
