By James D. Lewis

This e-book presents an creation to a subject of relevant curiosity in transcendental algebraic geometry: the Hodge conjecture. including 15 lectures plus addenda and appendices, the amount is predicated on a chain of lectures brought through Professor Lewis on the Centre de Recherches Mathematiques (CRM). The e-book is a self-contained presentation, thoroughly dedicated to the Hodge conjecture and similar themes. It comprises many examples, and such a lot effects are thoroughly confirmed or sketched. the inducement in the back of the various effects and historical past fabric is equipped. This complete method of the booklet supplies it a ``user-friendly'' kind. Readers needn't seek somewhere else for numerous effects. The e-book is acceptable to be used as a textual content for a issues direction in algebraic geometry; comprises an appendix by means of B. Brent Gordon.

This booklet treats the idea of representations of homogeneous polynomials as sums of powers of linear types. the 1st chapters are introductory, and concentrate on binary kinds and Waring's challenge. Then the author's fresh paintings is gifted typically at the illustration of types in 3 or extra variables as sums of powers of fairly few linear varieties.

Let P = { P l , - . - , P s } C IP(~)I) ---F r-1 be the points corresponding to the forms L 1 , . . , Ls, and l e t I p be the graded ideal in R of all forms vanishing at P. Let I = A n n ( f ) be the ideal of polynomials apolar to f . Then if i satisfies s <_ dimk Rj_i, A SUM OF P O W E R S , AND A VANISHING IDEAL AT P O I N T S . we have Furthermore H ( R / I p ) d = min(dimk Rd, s) for every d >_ O. PROOF. Since s <_ rj_ i and L 1 , . . , Ls are general enough, the corresponding set of points imposes i n d e p e n d e n t conditions on [ ( 9 ~ - 1 ( j - i ) [ .
