The 12 papers of this proceedings were first presented at a conference held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, Calif., in December 2001. Bryan Birch and Benedict Gross authored the first two chapters, which describe the beginnings of Heegner Points. They then present their correspondence with each other leading up to the Gross-Zagier formula.

Overview

The 12 papers of this proceedings were first presented at a conference held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, Calif., in December 2001. Bryan Birch and Benedict Gross authored the first two chapters, which describe the beginnings of Heegner Points. They then present their correspondence with each other leading up to the Gross-Zagier formula. The balance of the proceedings assesses the trends in the field with attention to analytic applications, extensions to totally real fields, Iwasawa theory, higher dimensional analogues, function field analogues, and conjectural variants. Darmon is with McGill U., Canada; Zhang is at Columbia U., New York. Not indexed. Annotation © 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
