This well timed source - according to the summer season university on Algebraic Geometry held lately at Bilkent college, Ankara, Turkey - surveys and applies primary rules and strategies within the idea of curves, surfaces, and threefolds to a large choice of topics. Written via top specialists representing uncommon associations, Algebraic Geometry furnishes all of the easy definitions beneficial for knowing, presents interrelated articles that aid and consult with each other, and covers weighted projective spaces...toric varieties...the Riemann-Kempf singularity theorem...McPherson's graph construction...Grobner techniques...complex multiplication...coding theory...and extra. With over 1250 bibliographic citations, equations, and drawings, in addition to an in depth index, Algebraic Geometry is a useful source for algebraic geometers, algebraists, geometers, quantity theorists, topologists, theoretical physicists, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate scholars in those disciplines.

Now we describe a recent example of an application of the degree, a solution of the question about the number of common tangent lines of two immersed circles. The author is grateful to M. Polyak, who introduced him to this problem and its beautiful solution. Let f, g : S 1 → R2 be two immersed circles, whose images (which are immersed closed curves) lie in the interiors of two complementary half-planes. How many common tangent lines can they have? If the curves are standard round circles then the answer is evident: exactly 4.
In the case (B) the obstacle is removed by taking into account the multiplicity of tangents. Namely, if a line touches the first curve in points a1 , . . , ak and it touches the second curve in points b1 , . . , bl , then it should be considered as kl tangents, one for each pair of points ai , bj . This is quite natural, since exactly this many tangents appear under a small perturbation of the curves. The case (C) is more difficult, since there we cannot get rid of the new tangents. The solution is to endow the common tangents with signs ±1 in such a way that the tangents from each arising pair have distinct signs and hence cancel each other out under counting.
Exercise 57. Prove that the trace is additive in the following sense. Let ϕ : A1 ⊕ A2 → A1 ⊕ A2 be an arbitrary endomorphism of the direct sum of two finitely generated Abelian groups. Then Tr(ϕ) = Tr(ϕ1 ) + Tr(ϕ2 ), where for i = 1, 2 the endomorphism ϕi : Ai → Ai is the composition of the embedding Ai → A1 ⊕ A2 , the embedding ϕ, and the projection A1 ⊕ A2 → Ai . e. a chain complex where all chain groups Cn are finitely generated and the number of non-zero chain groups is finite. e. a chain map to itself.
