Modular Functions and Modular Forms
by J. S. Milne
Number of pages: 129
This is an introduction to the arithmetic theory of modular functions and modular forms, with a greater emphasis on the geometry than most accounts. Prerequisites are the algebra and complex analysis usually covered in advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate courses.

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.

Theory of torus embeddings has find many applications. The point of the theory lies in its ability of translating meaningful algebra-geometric phenomena into very simple statements about the combinatorics of cones in affine space over the reals.
