 The research and expository papers in this book cover a crosssection of the latest developments in modern algebraic geometry. The volume will be especially beneficial to researchers and to those who want to keep abreast of the latest directions in the field. Aimed at those with an expert background in the field, the topics covered include algebraic groups and representation theory, enumerative geometry, Schubert varieties, rationality, compactifications, and surfaces. Titles in this series are copublished with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Members of the Canadian Mathematical Society may order at the AMS member price. Table of Contents  F. A.
