This volume consolidates selected articles from the 2016 Apprenticeship Program at the Fields Institute, part of the larger program on Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry that ran from July through December of 2016. Written primarily by junior mathematicians, the articles cover a range of topics in combinatorial algebraic geometry including curves, surfaces, Grassmannians, convexity, abelian varieties, and moduli spaces. This book bridges the gap between graduate courses and cutting-edge research by connecting historical sources, computation, explicit examples, and new results.

Torsors, Étale Homotopy and Applications to Rational Points

Torsors, also known as principal bundles or principal homogeneous spaces, are ubiquitous in mathematics. The purpose of this book is to present expository lecture notes and cutting-edge research papers on the theory and applications of torsors and étale homotopy, all written from different perspectives by leading experts. Part one of the book contains lecture notes on recent uses of torsors in geometric invariant theory and representation theory, plus an introduction to the étale homotopy theory of Artin and Mazur. Part two of the book features a milestone paper on the étale homotopy approach to the arithmetic of rational points. Furthermore, the reader will find a collection of research articles on algebraic groups and homogeneous spaces, rational and K3 surfaces, geometric invariant theory, rational points, descent and the Brauer–Manin obstruction. Together, these give a state-of-the-art view of a broad area at the crossroads of number theory and algebraic geometry.

This text offers a collection of survey and research papers by leading specialists in the field documenting the current understanding of higher dimensional varieties. Recently, it has become clear that ideas from many branches of mathematics can be successfully employed in the study of rational and integral points. This book will be very valuable for researchers from these various fields who have an interest in arithmetic applications, specialists in arithmetic geometry itself, and graduate students wishing to pursue research in this area.

If you were cornered in your room, attacked with two weapons--would you fight for your life? DONOVAN'S CHARGE recounts the drama of how one New Yorker-city worker, life guard, counselor-fights off an attacker and administers CPR until the arrival of the police-only to find himself on Riker's Island, facing a murder charge. When his attacker dies, Cox is found guilty of murder and receives a life sentence. After two years in a law library, Cox wins his appeal and the conviction is overturned unanimously by five Appellate Judges. On hearing the good news that the charge has been reduced-family, friends, officers and inmates anticipate Cox's release. However, he is again hit with the max-a sentence of which he will serve 17 years. Based on trial transcripts and witness accounts, the drama recreates the attack, the trial and Cox's life in this 3 ring circus. Its main theme is innocence, both in court and in spirit. And how one man preserves his-with the help of the spirit of the boy who, with his toy soldiers and trusty steed Donovan, stays by his side until the day they are released. Today a NYC subway singer-Glenn continues to rely on the spirit of the boy within for creative strength.

A Ring of Truth

In this second book of the series, Henrietta and Clive delightfully rewrite Pride and Prejudice—with a hint of mystery! Newly engaged, Clive and Henrietta now begin the difficult task of meeting each other’s family. “Difficult” because Clive has neglected to tell Henrietta that he is in fact the heir to the Howard estate and fortune, and Henrietta has just discovered that her mother has been hiding secrets about her past as well. When Clive brings Henrietta to the family estate to meet his parents, they are less than enthused about his impoverished intended. Left alone in this extravagant new world when Clive returns to the city, Henrietta finds herself more at home with the servants than his family, much to the disapproval of Mrs. Howard—and soon gets caught up in the disappearance of an elderly servant’s ring, not realizing that in doing so she has become part of a bigger, darker plot. As Clive and Henrietta attempt to discover the truth in the two very different worlds unraveling around them, they both begin to wonder: Are they meant for each other after all?
