Download E-books The Lefschetz Properties (Lecture Notes in Mathematics) PDF

By Tadahito Harima, Toshiaki Maeno, Hideaki Morita, Yasuhide Numata, Akihito Wachi

It is a monograph which collects simple strategies, significant effects and engaging purposes of Lefschetz homes of Artinian algebras. The foundation of the Lefschetz homes of Artinian algebras is the difficult Lefschetz Theorem, that's an enormous lead to algebraic geometry. although, for the final twenty years, quite a few purposes of the Lefschetz houses to different components of arithmetic were discovered, due to which the speculation of the Lefschetz houses is now of serious curiosity in its personal correct. It additionally has ties to different components, together with combinatorics, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, commutative algebra and illustration conception. The connections among the Lefschetz estate and different components of arithmetic will not be basically various, yet occasionally really spectacular, e.g. its ties to the Schur-Weyl duality. this can be the 1st publication exclusively dedicated to the Lefschetz homes and is the 1st try to deal with these houses systematically.
