The original text underlying this book was a set of notes for the Math Olympiad Program, the annual summer program to prepare U.S. high school students for the International Mathematical Olympiad. The original notes were intended to bridge the gap between the knowledge of Euclidean geometry of American IMO prospects and that of their counterparts from other countries. They included a large number of challenging problems culled from Olympiad-level competitions from around the world. In revising the old text, author attempted to usher the reader from Euclidean geometry to the gates of "geometry" as the term is defined by modern mathematicians, using the solving of routine and nonroutine problems as the vehicle for discovery.

The 1992/93 year at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute was devoted to Complex Algebraic Geometry. This volume collects articles that arose from this event, which took place at a time when algebraic geometry was undergoing a major change.

These notes are an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties. In contrast to most such accounts they study abstract algebraic varieties, not just subvarieties of affine and projective space. This approach leads naturally to scheme theory.

A monograph on homogeneous spaces of algebraic groups and their equivariant embeddings. Some results are supplied with proofs, the other are cited with references to the original papers. The style is intermediate between survey and detailed monograph.
