Maillot; R. Pink; D. Roessler; and A. Inspired by these exciting developments, the editors organized a meeting at Texel in and invited a number of mathematicians to write papers for this volume. Some of these papers were presented at the meeting; others arose from the discussions that took place.

They were all chosen for their quality and relevance to the application of algebraic geometry to arithmetic problems. Besides the research papers, there is a letter of Parshin and a paper of Zagier with is interpretations of the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture. Research mathematicians and graduate students in algebraic geometry and number theory will find a valuable and lively view of the field in this state-of-the-art selection.

## Ryoshi Hotta

This book is intended for graduate students and researchers in the fields mentioned above. It contains, besides exercises aimed at giving insights, numerous research problems motivated by the developments reported. The "lost notebook" contains considerable material on mock theta functions and so undoubtedly emanates from the last year of Ramanujan's life. It should be emphasized that the material on mock theta functions is perhaps Ramanujan's deepest work. Mathematicians are probably several decades away from a complete understanding of those functions.

## ARITHMETIK & ALGEBRA

More than half of the material in the book is on q-series, including mock theta functions; the remaining part deals with theta function identities, modular equations, incomplete elliptic integrals of the first kind and other integrals of theta functions, Eisenstein series, particular values of theta functions, the Rogers-Ramanujan continued fraction, other q-continued fractions, other integrals, and parts of Hecke's theory of modular forms.

This collection of solicited survey and research papers is intended to serve as an introduction for graduate students and researchers interested in entering the field, and as a source of reference for experts working on related problems. Topics that will be addressed include: birational properties such as rationality, unirationality, and rational connectedness, existence of rational curves in prescribed homology classes, cones of rational curves on rationally connected and Calabi-Yau varieties, as well as related questions within the framework of the Minimal Model Program.

Book D-modules continues to be an active area of stimulating research in such mathematical areas as algebra, analysis, differential equations, and representation theory. In it, recent developments in the theory of infinite dimensional algebras, and their applications to quantum integrable systems, are reviewed by leading experts in the field. Carlos A. Berenstein has had a profound influence on scholars and practitioners alike amid a distinguished mathematical career spanning nearly four decades.

His uncommon capability of adroitly moving between these parallel worlds is demonstrated by the breadth of his research interests, from his early theoretical work on interpolation in spaces of entire functions with growth conditions and residue theory to his later work on deconvolution and its applications to issues ranging from optics to the study of blood flow.

This volume, which celebrates his sixtieth birthday, reflects the state-of-the-art in these areas. Original articles and survey articles, all refereed, cover topics in harmonic and complex analysis, as well as more applied work in signal processing. Ever since the analogy between number fields and function fields was discovered, it has been a source of inspiration for new ideas, and a long history has not in any way detracted from the appeal of the subject. About participants and guests attended,with from Japan and from 34 other countries. The number of submitted papers and reports exceeded , and in addition, many poster presentations and experiential sessions were held.

This book is made up of 30 papers submitted to ISAGA and provides a good example of the diverse scope and standard of research achieved in simu- tion and gaming today. However,even though there were only 12 years between ISAGA and ISAGA ,and both conferences were held in the same country,Japan,for Japanese researchers,the meaning of hosting these two international conferences of simulation and gaming research was very different.

Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry. Arithmetic algebraic geometry is in a fascinating stage of growth, providing a rich variety of applications of new tools to both old and new problems. Representative of these recent developments is the notion of Arakelov geometry, a way of "completing" a variety over the ring of integers of a number field by adding fibres over the Archimedean places.

Another is the appearance of the relations between arithmetic geometry and Nevanlinna theory, or more precisely between diophantine approximation theory and the value distribution theory of holomorphic maps.

The book deals with the elementary and introductory theory of valuation rings. As explained in the introduction, this represents a useful and important viewpoint in algebraic geometry, especially concerning the theory of algebraic curves and their function fields. The correspondences of this with other viewpoints e. Links with arithmetic are also often indicated. There are also several exercises, often accompanied by hints, which sometimes develop further results not included in full for brevity reasons. The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves: Edition 2.

The theory of elliptic curves is distinguished by its long history and by the diversity of the methods that have been used in its study.

This book treats the arithmetic approach in its modern formulation, through the use of basic algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry. Following a brief discussion of the necessary algebro-geometric results, the book proceeds with an exposition of the geometry and the formal group of elliptic curves, elliptic curves over finite fields, the complex numbers, local fields, and global fields. Wolmer Vasconcelos. Many basic properties of D -modules are local and parallel the situation of coherent sheaves. This builds on the fact that D X is a locally free sheaf of O X -modules, albeit of infinite rank, as the above-mentioned O X -basis shows.

## Mixed Hodge complexes and higher extensions of mixed Hodge modules on algebraic varieties

A D X -module that is coherent as an O X -module can be shown to be necessarily locally free of finite rank. D -modules on different algebraic varieties are connected by pullback and pushforward functors comparable to the ones for coherent sheaves.

The pullback is defined as. Here M is a left D Y -module, while its pullback is a left module over X. Conversely, for a right D X -module N ,. Since this mixes the right exact tensor product with the left exact pushforward, it is common to set instead. Because of this, much of the theory of D -modules is developed using the full power of homological algebra , in particular derived categories.

It can be shown that the Weyl algebra is a left and right Noetherian ring. Moreover, it is simple , that is to say, its only two-sided ideal are the zero ideal and the whole ring. These properties make the study of D -modules manageable. Notably, standard notions from commutative algebra such as Hilbert polynomial , multiplicity and length of modules carry over to D -modules. The associated graded ring is seen to be isomorphic to the polynomial ring in 2 n indeterminates.

In particular it is commutative. The Hilbert polynomial is defined to be the numerical polynomial that agrees with the function. It is bounded by the Bernstein inequality. As mentioned above, modules over the Weyl algebra correspond to D -modules on affine space. The Bernstein filtration not being available on D X for general varieties X , the definition is generalized to arbitrary affine smooth varieties X by means of order filtration on D X , defined by the order of differential operators.

The characteristic variety is defined to be the subvariety of the cotangent bundle cut out by the radical of the annihilator of gr M , where again M is equipped with a suitable filtration with respect to the order filtration on D X.

As usual, the affine construction then glues to arbitrary varieties. The Bernstein inequality continues to hold for any smooth variety X. While the upper bound is an immediate consequence of the above interpretation of gr D X in terms of the cotangent bundle, the lower bound is more subtle. Holonomic modules have a tendency to behave like finite-dimensional vector spaces. For example, their length is finite. Holonomic modules can also be characterized by a homological condition: M is holonomic if and only if D M is concentrated seen as an object in the derived category of D -modules in degree 0.

This fact is a first glimpse of Verdier duality and the Riemann—Hilbert correspondence.
