An introductory panorama of current progress in the field, addressed to both beginners and experts. This volume offers expository overviews of the state of the art in many areas of algebraic geometry. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum ...

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.

The purpose of these lectures is to introduce the notion of a Stokes-perverse sheaf as a receptacle for the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence for holonomic D-modules. They develop the original idea of P. Deligne in dimension one.

The stacks project aims to build up enough basic algebraic geometry as foundations for algebraic stacks. This implies a good deal of theory on commutative algebra, schemes, varieties, algebraic spaces, has to be developed en route.
