Geometry of Some Special Arithmetic Quotients

The booklet discusses a sequence of higher-dimensional moduli areas, of abelian forms, cubic and K3 surfaces, that have embeddings in projective areas as very designated algebraic types. a lot of those have been identified classically, yet within the final bankruptcy a brand new such style, a quintic fourfold, is brought and studied.

Theory of moduli: lectures given at the 3rd 1985 session of the Centro internazionale matematico estivo

The contributions making up this quantity are increased models of the classes given on the C. I. M. E. summer season college at the thought of Moduli.

Asymptotics in Dynamics, Geometry and PDEs; Generalized Borel Summation, Vol. I

Those are the lawsuits of a one-week foreign convention situated on asymptotic research and its purposes. They include significant contributions facing - mathematical physics: PT symmetry, perturbative quantum box conception, WKB research, - neighborhood dynamics: parabolic platforms, small denominator questions, - new features in mildew calculus, with comparable combinatorial Hopf algebras and alertness to multizeta values, - a brand new kinfolk of resurgent features concerning knot conception.

Example text

If E is an elliptic curve, we denote by A(E) the group of its biholomorphic automorphisms. After fixing an origin 0 E E this group can be described in the following way; E, acting on itself by translations, forms a normal subgroup of A ( E ) and the quotient A ( E ) / E can be identified with the group of automorphisms leaving 0 fixed. So this quotient is the cyclic group 71~ of order 2, 4 or 6. If B is any smooth, compact, connected curve, then the holomorphic fibre bundles with typical fibre E and base B are classified by the cohomology set H i ( B , AB) and there is an exact sequence of cohomology sets H I ( B , ~ B ) --+ H I ( B , AB) --+ HI(B,~,~) , where ,As, resp.

E. a compact surface which is the total space of an analytic fibre bundle with fibre IP 1 and structural group PGL(2, C) over a smooth, connected curve B. Examples are provided by the projective bundles IP(E) of algebraic 2-vector bundles E over a smooth, connected, compact 40 2. Facts on compact complex surfaces curve. In fact there are no other examples since any ruled surface is isomorphic to IP(E), where E is an algebraic 2-vector bundle over B. 1). The surfaces IP(O~, @ 0 ~ (n)) are denoted by E,~ and are called the Hirzebruch surfaces.

27 (1) The minimal compact surfaces X with a ( X ) = 1, kod(X) = - o o are exactly the Hopf surfaces. (2) A compact surface X with a(X) = 0 is a Hopf surface if and only if bl(X) = 1 , b2(X) = 0 and there is a curve on X . Thus, besides some Hopf surfaces with a(X) = 1 all minimal surfaces in class VII (class (2) here) have a(X) = 0. For surfaces X in class VII with a ( X ) = 0 and b2(X) = 0, there are, apart from Hopf surfaces, other three kind of examples given by Inoue [In]. We shall present only one type of Inoue surfaces (see also [B-H]).
