This publication is a contemporary remedy of the speculation of theta services within the context of algebraic geometry. the newness of its strategy lies within the systematic use of the Fourier-Mukai remodel. Alexander Polishchuk starts off by means of discussing the classical idea of theta capabilities from the point of view of the illustration conception of the Heisenberg team (in which the standard Fourier remodel performs the famous role). He then indicates that during the algebraic method of this concept (originally because of Mumford) the Fourier-Mukai rework can frequently be used to simplify the prevailing proofs or to supply thoroughly new proofs of many vital theorems. This incisive quantity is for graduate scholars and researchers with powerful curiosity in algebraic geometry.

Elliptic capabilities and Riemann surfaces performed a major position in nineteenth-century arithmetic. this present day there's a nice revival of curiosity in those issues not just for his or her personal sake but in addition due to their purposes to such a lot of components of mathematical study from team thought and quantity idea to topology and differential equations.

Algebraic topology is a easy a part of smooth arithmetic, and a few wisdom of this region is crucial for any complicated paintings when it comes to geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This booklet offers an in depth remedy of algebraic topology either for academics of the topic and for complex graduate scholars in arithmetic both focusing on this sector or carrying on with directly to different fields.

Example text

I) Since ( + ⊂ ⊥ L ⊂ ⊥ , ∩ L)⊥ = ,L L ⊥ α = θ H, L ,L . is a lattice. One has ∩ ( + L) = + ⊥ ∩ L. (ii) For an element γ + l ∈ L , where γ ∈ , l ∈ ⊥ ∩ L, set α(γ + l) = α(γ ). 2). (iii) This follows immediately from the definition, since L / L ∩ L = / ∩ L. Note that the 1-dimensional subspace T (H, L , α) ⊂ T (H, , α) coincides with the space of I -invariants in T (H, , α), where I = ⊥ ∩ L/ ∩ L is a maximal isotropic subgroup in ⊥ / , lifted to the finite Heisenberg group G(E, , α) trivially. Thus, we obtain the following corollary.

This proposition implies the following result for which we will give an independent proof in Chapter 7. 6. If the lattice is self-dual (and H is positive-definite), then T (H, , α) is 1-dimensional. Remark. We obtained above a description of the (projectivization of the) spaces of global sections of line bundles L(H, α) in terms that are independent of complex structure. This description relied heavily on the fact that the Hermitian form H is positive. It is easy to see that if H is nondegenerate but not positive then L(H, α) has no holomorphic sections.

Let N ( ) be the normalizer of in H(V ). Then the group G(E, , α) := N ( )/ acts naturally on the space T (H, , α). 1, G(E, , α) is a Heisenberg group. More precisely, it is a central extension of the finite abelian group ⊥ / by U (1), where ⊥ = {v ∈ V : E(v, ) ⊂ Z}. Equivalent way to define an action of G(E, , α) on T (H, , α) is the following. 5). The restriction of this action to N ( ) descends to an action of G(E, , α) on the line bundle L(H, α −1 ) over V / , compatible with the action of ⊥ / on V / by translations.
