Lectures on Moduli of Curves
by D. Gieseker
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1982
Number of pages: 88
These lecture notes are based on some lectures given in 1980. The object of the lectures was to construct a projective moduli space for stable curves of genus greater than or equal two using Mumford's geometric invariant theory.

by J. S. Milne
Introduction to both the geometry and the arithmetic of abelian varieties. It includes a discussion of the theorems of Honda and Tate concerning abelian varieties over finite fields and the paper of Faltings in which he proves Mordell's Conjecture.

This book discusses two subjects of quite different nature: Construction methods for quotients of quasi-projective schemes by group actions or by equivalence relations and properties of direct images of certain sheaves under smooth morphisms.
