9783642084294: Real Algebraic Geometry (Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 3. Folge / A Series of Modern Surveys in Mathematics)

The present volume is a translation, revision and updating of our book (pub­ lished in French) with the title "Geometrie Algebrique Reelle". Since its pub­ lication in 1987 the theory has made advances in several directions. There have also been new insights into material already in the French edition. Many of these advances and insights have been incorporated in this English version of the book, so that it may be viewed as being substantially different from the original. We wish to thank Michael Buchner for his careful reading of the text and for his linguistic corrections and stylistic improvements. The initial Jb. TEiX file was prepared by Thierry van Effelterre. The three authors participate in the European research network "Real Algebraic and Analytic Geometry". The first author was partially supported by NATO Collaborative Research Grant 960011.

Review:

"Wie schon das französische Original, so ist auch die englische Version sehr sorgfältig verfasst. Beim Vergleich zwischen beiden stösst man immer wieder auf Stellen, wo der ursprüngliche Text nicht nur einfach übersetzt, sondern im Interesse einer noch klareren Darstellung auch neu konzipiert worden ist. Kein Zweifel, dass die neue Fassung auch weiterhin die Rolle einer Standradreferenz spielen wird."
DMV Jahresbericht, 103. Band, Heft 2, Juli 2001
