Item description for Degeneration of Abelian Varieties (Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 3. Folge / A Series of Modern Surveys in Mathematics) by Gerd Faltings...
This book presents a complete treatment of semi-abelian degenerations of abelian varieties, and their application to the construction of arithmetic compactifications of Siegel moduli space. Most results are new and have never been published before. Highlights of the book include a classification of semi-abelian schemes, construction of the toroidal and the minimal compactification over the integers, heights for abelian varieties over number fields, and Eichler integrals in several variables. The book also provides a new approach to Siegel modular forms. This work should serve as a valuable reference source for researchers and graduate students interested in algebraic geometry, Shimura varieties, or diophantine geometry.
