Surveys in modern mathematics [EBook] / edited by Victor Prasolov, Yulij Ilyashenko.
This collection of articles from the Independent University of Moscow is derived from the Globus seminars held there. They are given by world authorities, from Russia and elsewhere, in various areas of mathematics and are designed to introduce graduate students to some of the most dynamic areas of m...
