This volume contains two survey articles and eight research articles contributed by the invited lecturers at the conference "Algebraic Geometry in East Asia. II", which was held at the Conference Hall (Hanoi, Vietnam) from October 10-14, 2005. Topics touched upon in this volume include Zariski pairs, rational homogeneous manifolds, Kummer surfaces, singularity theory, Cremona groups, algebraic curves, dual varieties, Castelnuovo-Weil lattices, etc. The reader can not only find the current status of a variety of research topics but also enjoy the art of the subjects presented by leading algebraic geometers.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry.
