For the previous numerous a long time the idea of automorphic varieties has turn into a massive point of interest of improvement in quantity conception and algebraic geometry, with purposes in lots of varied parts, together with combinatorics and mathematical physics.

The twelve chapters of this monograph current a vast, basic advent to the Langlands software, that's, the speculation of automorphic kinds and its reference to the speculation of L-functions and different fields of arithmetic.

Key positive aspects of this self-contained presentation:

quite a few components in quantity conception from the classical zeta functionality as much as the Langlands software are lined.

The exposition is systematic, with each one bankruptcy concentrating on a selected subject dedicated to targeted instances of this system:

• simple zeta functionality of Riemann and its generalizations to Dirichlet and Hecke L-functions, category box thought and a few themes on classical automorphic functions (E. Kowalski)

• A research of the conjectures of Artin and Shimura–Taniyama–Weil (E. de Shalit)

• An exam of classical modular (automorphic) L-functions as GL(2) capabilities, bringing into play the idea of representations (S.S. Kudla)

• Selberg's thought of the hint formulation, that's the way to examine automorphic representations (D. Bump)

• dialogue of cuspidal automorphic representations of GL(2,(A)) ends up in Langlands concept for GL(n) and the significance of the Langlands twin crew (J.W. Cogdell)

• An creation to the geometric Langlands software, a brand new and energetic quarter of study that enables utilizing robust equipment of algebraic geometry to build automorphic sheaves (D. Gaitsgory)

Graduate scholars and researchers will make the most of this gorgeous text.

Traces of Differential Forms and Hochschild Homology

This monograph presents an creation to, in addition to a unification and extension of the broadcast paintings and a few unpublished rules of J. Lipman and E. Kunz approximately lines of differential varieties and their family members to duality concept for projective morphisms. The strategy makes use of Hochschild-homology, the definition of that's prolonged to the class of topological algebras.

Period Mappings and Period Domains

The idea that of a interval of an elliptic critical is going again to the 18th century. Later Abel, Gauss, Jacobi, Legendre, Weierstrass and others made a scientific research of those integrals. Rephrased in sleek terminology, those provide how to encode how the advanced constitution of a two-torus varies, thereby displaying that convinced households include all elliptic curves.

Let Yo (q) = r o(q) \H.

Taking y = -1, on gets the relation f = f lk y = x ( -1)( -1)k f, so there can exist nonzero holomorphic modular forms only if the character satisfies the consistency condition x (-1) = ( -1 )k, which is tacitly assumed to be the case in what follows. Similarly for automorphic functions, we must have x (-1) = 1. 3. Classical Automorphic Forms 47 One can also define nonholomorphic forms of weight k =F 0, using a modified differential operator. Both holomorphic and Maass forms can be most convincingly put into a single framework through the study of the representation theory of G L(2, R) (or of the adele group G L(2, A) in the arithmetic case).
