This book presents articles from the conference on algebraic coverings held in March 2000 in St. Etienne (France). The goal of the conference was to introduce the algebraic bases of this theory and to give a survey of the research tools. These proceedings reflect the spirit of the conference.
The book includes widely accessible survey and research papers on a range of topics, including inverse Galois theory, moduli spaces, problems of descent, rigid geometry, the language of stacks and gerbs and its applications, Galois modules, and morphisms of curves. There is also an appendix with a short lecture on topological and algebraic covers that will make a good introduction to the subject for the non-specialist.
The volume is intended for advanced graduate students and researchers. It would make a nice addition to a seminar on algebraic coverings.
