Quasi-Projective Moduli for Polarized Manifolds
by Eckart Viehweg
Publisher: Springer 1995
Number of pages: 326
This book discusses two subjects of quite different nature: Construction methods for quotients of quasi-projective schemes by group actions or by equivalence relations and properties of direct images of certain sheaves under smooth morphisms. Both methods together allow to prove the central result of the text, the existence of quasi-projective moduli schemes, whose points parametrize the set of manifolds with ample canonical divisors or the set of polarized manifolds with a semi-ample canonical divisor.

These notes develop the theory of algebraic curves from the viewpoint of modern algebraic geometry, but without excessive prerequisites. It assumed that the reader is familiar with some basic properties of rings, ideals, and polynomials.

This is survey of recent developments in, and a tutorial on, the approach to P v. NP and related questions called Geometric Complexity Theory. The article is written to be accessible to graduate students. Numerous open questions are presented.
