Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory: In Honor of Vladimir Drinfeld's 50th Birthday / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Birkhäuser Boston
This book represents a collection of invited papers by outstanding mathematicians in algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory dedicated to Vladimir Drinfeld. Original research articles reflect the range of Drinfeld's work, and his profound contributions to the Langlands program, quantum groups, and mathematical physics are paid particular attention. These ten original articles by prominent mathematicians, dedicated to Drinfeld on the occasion of his 50th birthday, broadly reflect the range of Drinfeld's own interests in algebra, algebraic geometry, and number theory.
