Symmetries of Compact Riemann Surfaces Summary

Symmetries of Compact Riemann Surfaces by Emilio Bujalance

The content of this monograph is situated in the intersection of important branches of mathematics like the theory of one complex variable, algebraic geometry, low dimensional topology and, from the point of view of the techniques used, com- natorial group theory. The main tool comes from the Uniformization Theorem for Riemannsurfaces,whichrelatesthetopologyofRiemannsurfacesandholomorphic or antiholomorphic actions on them to the algebra of classical cocompact Fuchsian groups or, more generally, non-euclidean crystallographic groups. Foundations of this relationship were established by A. M. Macbeath in the early sixties and dev- oped later by, among others, D. Singerman. Another important result in Riemann surface theory is the connection between Riemannsurfacesandtheir symmetrieswith complexalgebraiccurvesandtheirreal forms. Namely, there is a well known functorial bijective correspondence between compact Riemann surfaces and smooth, irreducible complex projective curves. The fact that a Riemann surface has a symmetry means, under this equivalence, that the corresponding complex algebraic curve has a real form, that is, it is the complex- cation of a real algebraic curve. Moreover, symmetries which are non-conjugate in the full group of automorphisms of the Riemann surface, correspond to real forms which are birationally non-isomorphic over the reals. Furthermore, the set of points xedbyasymmetryishomeomorphictoaprojectivesmoothmodeloftherealform.

Symmetries of Compact Riemann Surfaces Reviews

From the reviews:

"The monograph under review is primarily a survey of recent advances in the theory of symmetries of compact Riemann surfaces. It also provides a number of new interesting developments and different methods of proof for some of the recent and classical results in this area as well as a number of illustrative and detailed examples highlighting these results. With its informative and well-written introduction and a substantial preliminaries section, this monograph is ideal for both beginners to the area and current researchers." (Aaron D. Wootton, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 h)
