The international conference "Algebraic Geometry in East Asia, III" was held at the Korea Institute for Advanced Study in Seoul, Korea in November 2008. The 21 invited lectures (including four lectures by Europeans and Americans) were presented at the conference.

This volume consists of three survey articles and 10 research articles. The papers explore a wide variety of topics, including algebraic surfaces, Fano varieties, variety of general type, bundles, Cremona groups, Mordell-Weil groups, fundamental group scheme, and quantum rings.

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.
