14J: Surfaces and higher-dimensional varieties


Introduction

Most of the files indexed on this page involve "arithmetic algebraic geometry", essentially Diophantine equations, here involving 2-dimensional solution sets (e.g. 1 equation in 3 unknowns).

History

Applications and related fields

Surfaces are often studied by considering maps from or to algebraic curves -- that is, by studying embedded (or immersed) curves, or by viewing the surface as fibred over a curve.
