Brossura editoriale. Ottimo esemplare, come nuovo. Volume in inglese.
This book is a revised and expanded new edition of the first four chapters of Shafarevich’s well-known introductory book on algebraic geometry. Besides correcting misprints and inaccuracies, the author has added plenty of new material, mostly concrete geometrical material such as Grassmannian varieties, plane cubic curves, the cubic surface, degenerations of quadrics and elliptic curves, the Bertini theorems, and normal surface singularities.
The second volume of Shafarevich’s introductory book on algebraic geometry focuses on schemes, complex algebraic varieties and complex manifolds. As with first volume the author has revised the text and added new material. Although the material is more advanced than in Volume 1 the algebraic apparatus is kept to a minimum making the book accessible to non-specialists. It can be read independently of the first volume and is suitable for beginning graduate students.
