Jessica Valenti: IMG Full Frontal Feminism Revisited



It is arguably the worst and best time to be a feminist. In the years since I first wrote Full Frontal Feminism, we've seen a huge cultural shift in... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Students and teachers will welcome the return of this unabridged reprint of one of the first English-language texts to offer full coverage of algebraic plane curves. It offers advanced students a detailed, thorough introduction and background to the theory of algebraic plane curves and their relations to various fields of geometry and analysis.

The text treats such topics as the topological properties of curves, the Riemann-Roch theorem, and all aspects of a wide variety of curves including real, covariant, polar, containing series of a given sort, elliptic, hyperelliptic, polygonal, reducible, rational, the pencil, two-parameter nets, the Laguerre net, and nonlinear systems of curves. It is almost entirely confined to the properties of the general curve rather than a detailed study of curves of the third or fourth order. The text chiefly employs algebraic procedure, with large portions written according to the spirit and methods of the Italian geometers. Geometric methods are much employed, however, especially those involving the projective geometry of hyperspace.

Readers will find this volume ample preparation for the symbolic notation of Aronhold and Clebsch.
