Publisher: arXiv 2006
Number of pages: 250
This is a monograph on homogeneous spaces of algebraic groups and their equivariant embeddings. Some results are supplied with proofs, while the other are cited with references to the original papers. Starting with basic properties of algebraic homogeneous spaces, the author focuses on homogeneous spaces of reductive groups and introduces two invariants: complexity and rank. He considers the Luna-Vust theory of equivariant embeddings, paying attention to the case of complexity not greater than one.

This classic book covers the whole of algebraic geometry and associated theories. Baker discusses the subject in terms of transcendental functions, and theta functions in particular. Many of the ideas put forward are of continuing relevance today.

This is an introduction to the arithmetic theory of modular functions and modular forms, with an emphasis on the geometry. Prerequisites are the algebra and complex analysis usually covered in advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate courses.
