Book Description

This reference presents the proceedings of an international meeting on the occasion of theUniversity of Bologna's ninth centennial-highlighting the latest developments in the field ofgeometry and complex variables and new results in the areas of algebraic geometry,differential geometry, and analytic functions of one or several complex variables.Building upon the rich tradition of the University of Bologna's great mathematics teachers, thisvolume contains new studies on the history of mathematics, including the algebraic geometrywork of F. Enriques, B. Levi, and B. Segre ... complex function theory ideas of L. Fantappie,B. Levi, S. Pincherle, and G. Vitali ... series theory and logarithm theory contributions of P.Mengoli and S. Pincherle ... and much more. Additionally, the book lists all the University ofBologna's mathematics professors-from 1860 to 1940-with precise indications of eachcourse year by year.Including survey papers on combinatorics, complex analysis, and complex algebraic geometryinspired by Bologna's mathematicians and current advances, Geometry and ComplexVariables illustrates the classic works and ideas in the field and their influence on today'sresearch.
