Presents a compendium of papers selected from the Europroj conferences held in Catania and Barcelona. The text contains research in algebraic geometry with emphasis on classification problems, and in particular studies on the structure of moduli spaces of vector bundles, and on the classification of curves and surfaces.


"…offer[s] updated and stimulating information concerning important research areas of algebraic geometry. It is a very useful resource for researchers and graduate students in this branch of mathematics."

---Romanian Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics, 2000
