About the Author

Igor V. Dolgachev is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan.


'... the author has rendered a great, truly invaluable service to the community of algebraic geometers worldwide. No doubt, this great book is a product of ultimate enthusiasm, ethical principles and expertise, which will help preserve the precious legacy of classical algebraic geometry for further generations of researchers, teachers and students in the field.' Werner Kleinert, EMS Newsletter
'The amount of material covered is absolutely impressive - it reflects the amazing culture of the author ... [He] has rendered a great service to the algebraic geometry community: most of the material treated was available previously only in classical texts, which are quite difficult to read for modern mathematicians. This is a wonderful book. Anyone interested in classical algebraic geometry should have a copy.' Arnaud Beauville, Mathematical Reviews
