Thus the appearance of a book specifically devoted to projective duality is a long-awaited and welcome event. Projective Duality and Homogeneous Spaces covers a vast and diverse range of topics in the field of dual varieties, ranging from differential geometry to Mori theory and from topology to the theory of algebras. It gives a very readable and thorough account and the presentation of the material is clear and convincing. For the most part of the book the only prerequisites are basic algebra and algebraic geometry. This book will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students as well as professional mathematicians working in algebra, geometry and analysis. 0aGeometry, algebraic. 0aTopological Groups. 0aGlobal differential geometry. 0aTopology. 0aCombinatorics.14aAlgebraic Geometry.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M1101924aTopological Groups, Lie Groups.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M1113224aDifferential Geometry.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M2102224aTopology.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M2800024aCombinatorics.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M290102 aSpringerLink (Online service)0 tSpringer eBooks08iPrinted edition:z978364206172108iPrinted edition:z978354080342308iPrinted edition:z9783540228981 0aEncyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences,x0938-0396 ;v13340uhttps://doi.org/10.1007/b138367 aZDB-2-SMA cEB aMathematics and Statistics (Springer-11649) c424871d424871 9275460aMAINbMAINd2017-04-01pEB1012r2018-12-03yEB
