The Geometry of Moduli Spaces of Sheaves

Now again in print, this very popular publication has been up-to-date to mirror fresh advances within the concept of semistable coherent sheaves and their moduli areas, which come with moduli areas in confident attribute, moduli areas of central bundles and of complexes, Hilbert schemes of issues on surfaces, derived different types of coherent sheaves, and moduli areas of sheaves on Calabi-Yau threefolds.

Spaces of Homotopy Self-Equivalences: A Survey

This survey covers teams of homotopy self-equivalence sessions of topological areas, and the homotopy form of areas of homotopy self-equivalences. For manifolds, the complete staff of equivalences and the mapping type staff are in comparison, as are the corresponding areas. incorporated are tools of calculation, a number of calculations, finite iteration effects, Whitehead torsion and different parts.

Galois Theory of Difference Equations

This e-book lays the algebraic foundations of a Galois conception of linear distinction equations and exhibits its courting to the analytic challenge of discovering meromorphic capabilities asymptotic to formal recommendations of distinction equations. Classically, this latter query used to be attacked by way of Birkhoff and Tritzinsky and the current paintings corrects and enormously generalizes their contributions.

Example text

Both holomorphic and Maass forms can be most convincingly put into a single framework through the study of the representation theory of G L(2, R) (or of the adele group G L(2, A) in the arithmetic case). Using the definition above, one can impose more regularity conditions at the cusps. Definition. , an automorphic function). -periodic function fa = f lk a a is of moderate growth at infinity. , Maass forms). , sJ. , Maass cusp forms). 2. Other equivalent formulations can be given. ,).. =F 0) and in L 2 (fo(q)\H) (with respect to the hyperbolic measure).

Then A (s; a) admits analytic continuation to a meromorphic function on C with simple poles at s = 1 and at s = 0 and it satisfies the functional equation ยท A(s; a)= IDI 112-s A(l- s; (aD)- 1), where D is the ideal class of the different of K /Q. JIDT . Summing over a E H(K), this proposition implies the analytic continuation and functional equation of {K (s) as stated in Section 4. 2), are absolutely convergent for Re(s) > 1, and since all partial zeta functions have the same residue at s = 1.

2. , [Wa]). C. 4] prove that the denominator of -bk/ k contains all the primes p such that p - 1 I 2k, and only them, so that for a p in the denominator we have xk- 1 = x- 1 (mod p). Hence even the "poles" modulo primes of ~(1 - k) are still "explained" by the divergence of the harmonic series! In the other direction, maybe it is not so surprising that the numerator of Bernoulli numbers should remain so mysterious. We finally only mention that the congruence properties of the values of the zeta function at negative integers were the motivation for the discovery by Leopoldt of the p-adic zeta function, later much generalized by others to p-adic L-functions of various kinds.
