Current Topics in Complex Algebraic Geometry

The 1992/93 academic year at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute was devoted to Complex Algebraic Geometry. This volume collects survey articles that arose from this event, which took place at a time when algebraic geometry was undergoing a major change. To put it succinctly, algebraic geometry has opened up to ideas and connections from other fields that have traditionally been far away.

These notes are based on a series of lectures given in 1973. The lectures are centered about the work of M. Scahlessinger and R. Elkik on infinitesimal deformations. Contents: Formal Theory and Computations; Elkik's Theorems on Algebraization.

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 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.

The main goal of these notes is to give a proof of the basic facts of harmonic analysis on compact symmetric spaces and then to apply these to concrete problems involving things such as the Radon and related transforms on these spaces.
