CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The focus of this book is the continuing strength of pure mathematics in
Russia after the post-Soviet diaspora. The authors are eight young specialists
who are associated with strong research groups in Moscow and St. Petersburg in
the fields of algebraic geometry and number theory. Their articles are based on
lecture courses given at British universities. The articles are mainly surveys
of the recent work of the research groups and contain a substantial number of
original results. Topics covered are embeddings and projective duals of
homogeneous spaces, formal groups, mirror duality, del Pezzo fibrations,
Diophantine approximation and geometric quantization. The authors are I.
Arzhantsev, M. Bondarko, V. Golyshev, M. Grinenko, N. Moshchevitin, E. Tevelev,
D. Timashev and N. Tyurin. Mathematical researchers and graduate students in
algebraic geometry and number theory worldwide will find this book of great
