About the Author



'The book is written by a leading expert in the field and it will certainly be a valuable enhancement to the existing literature.' EMS Newsletter
"I would definitely recommend this book to a reader already acquainted with abelian varieties wishing to go beyond the basics of the subject. It is stimulatig and provocative and at the same time well-organized. Even the expert will learn a lot from reading it." Bulletin of the AMS
