Introduction to Complex Analytic Geometry

U.S. Government Printing Office, 1991 - Mathematics - 523 pages
The subject of this book is analytic geometry, understood as the geometry of analytic sets (or, more generally, analytic spaces), i.e. sets described locally by systems of analytic equations. Though many of the results presented are relatively modern, they are already part of the classical tool-kit of workers in analytic and algebraic geometry and in analysis, for example: the theorems of Chevalley on constructible sets, of Remmert-Stein on removable singularities, of Andreotti-Stoll on the fibres of a finite mapping, and of Andreotti-Salmon on factoriality of the Grassmannian. The chapter on the relationship between analytic and algebraic geometry is particularly illuminating. This book should be regarded as an introduction. Its aim is to familiarize the reader with a basic range of problems, using means as elementary as possible. At the same time, the author's intention is to give the reader access to complete proofs without need to rely on so-called 'well- known' facts. All the necessary properties and theorems have been gathered in the first chapters - either with proofs or with references to standard and elemenatry textbooks.
