Complex Algebraic Curves by Frances Clare Kirwan starting at $ Complex Algebraic Curves has 1 available editions to buy at Half Price Books Marketplace. This fine book by Herb Clemens quickly became a favorite of many algebraic geometers when it was first published in It has been popular with novices and experts ever since. It is written as a book of “impressions” of a journey through the theory of complex algebraic curves. Many topics of compelling beauty occur along the way.

t spaces to plane curves, 79 ; t cones to plane curves, 81 ; local ring at a point on a curve, 83; t spaces to algebraic subsets of Am, 84 ; differential of a regular map, 86; t spaces to afﬁne algebraic varieties, 87 ; g. UNDERGRADUATE ON ALGEBRAIC CURVES: Fulton - "Algebraic Curves, an Introduction to Algebraic Geometry" which can be found here. It is a classic and although the flavor is clearly of typed concise notes, it is by far the shortest but thorough book on curves, which serves as a very nice introduction to the whole subject.

The author introduces complex algebraic curves in complex 2-dimensional space in the next chapter. Recognizing that such curves are not compact, he compactifies them by adding suitable points at infinity, giving complex projective by: By using only the basic techniques acquired by most undergraduate courses in mathematics, Dr Kirwan introduces the theory, observes the algebraic and topological properties of complex algebraic curves, and shows how they are related to complex analysis.

The current book is an excellent research monograph and reference book in the theory of complex algebraic curves and their moduli, which is very likely to become an indispensable source for researchers and graduate students in both complex geometry and mathematical physics.” (Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol.

This book offers a concise yet thorough introduction to the notion of moduli spaces of complex algebraic curves. Over the last few decades, this notion has become central not only in algebraic geometry, but in mathematical physics, including string theory, as well.

In this book, Miranda takes the approach that algebraic curves are best encountered for the first time over the complex numbers, where the reader's classical intuition about surfaces, integration, and other concepts can be brought into play.

Therefore, many examples of algebraic curves are presented in the first chapters.

It avoids most of the material found in other modern books on the subject, such as, for example, [10] where one can ﬁnd many of the classical results on algebraic curves.
