Date:2007
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This challenging problem book by renowned US Olympiad coaches, mathematics teachers, and researchers develops a multitude of problem-solving skills needed to excel in mathematical contests and research in number theory. Offeringinspiration and intell ectual delight, the problems throughout the book encourage students to express their ideas, conjectures, and conclusions in writing. Applying specific techniques and strategies, readers will acquire a solidunderstanding of the fundamental concepts and ide as of number theory. Key features: * Contains problems developed for various mathematical contests, including the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) * Builds a bridge betweenordinary high school examples and exercises in number theory and more soph isticated, intricate and abstract concepts and problems * Begins by familiarizing students with typical examples that illustrate central themes, followed bynumerous carefully selected problems and extensive discussions of their solutions * Combines unconv entional and essay-type examples, exercises and problems, many presented in an original fashion * Engages students in creative thinkingand stimulates them to express their comprehension and mastery of the material beyond the classroom 104 Number Theory Pr oblems is a valuable resource for advanced high school students, undergraduates, instructors, and mathematicscoaches preparing to participate in mathematical contests and those contemplating future research in number theory and its related areas

Title:Introduction to Plane Algebraic Curves [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ernst Kunz
Date:2005
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work treats an introduction to commutative ring theory and algebraic plane curves, requiring of the student only a basic knowledge of algebra, with all of the algebraic facts collected into several appendices that can beeasily referred to, as ne eded. Kunz's proven conception of teaching topics in commutative algebra together with their applications to algebraic geometry makes this book significantly different from others on plane algebraic curves. Theexposition focuses on the purely algebraic as pects of plane curve theory, leaving the topological and analytical viewpoints in the background, with only casual references to these subjects and suggestions for further reading. Mostimportant to this text: * Emphasizes and utilizes the theory of filter ed algebras, their graduated rings and Rees algebras, to deduce basic facts about the intersection theory of plane curves * Presents residue theory in the affineplane and its applications to intersection theory * Methods of proof for the RiemannRoch theor em conform to the presentation of curve theory, formulated in the language of filtrations and associated graded rings * Examples,exercises, figures and suggestions for further study round out this fairly self-contained textbook From a review of the German edition: [T]he reader is invited to learn some topics from commutative ring theory by mainly studyingtheir illustrations and applications in plane curve theory. This methodical approach is certainly very enlightening and efficient for both teachers and s tudents The whole text is a real masterpiece of clarity, rigor, comprehension,methodical skill, algebraic and geometric motivationhighly enlightening, motivating and entertaining at the same time One simply cannot do better in writing such a textbook.
