Since its first edition, Compact Complex Surfaces has become one of the most important books on the subject. The second edition is revised and expanded to include major developments of the last 20 years, including a new section devoted to the stunning results achieved by the introduction of Donaldson and Seiberg-Witten invariants.From the reviews: qNo doubt, this book remains a must for everyone dealing with complex algebraic surfaces.q --ZENTRALBLATT MATHUniruled varieties are covered by rational curves in the sense that through a general point passes at least one rational curve. Conversely, a variety covered by rational curves can be shown to be uniruled. It is conjectured that k = a oo forces anbsp;...
