This quantity discusses effects approximately quadratic types that supply upward thrust to interconnections between quantity conception, algebra, algebraic geometry, and topology. the writer bargains with quite a few themes together with Hilbert's seventeenth challenge, the Tsen-Lang thought of quasi-algebraically closed fields, the extent of topological areas, and structures of quadratic varieties over arbitrary fields. at any time when attainable, proofs are brief and stylish, and the writer has made this booklet as self-contained as attainable. This ebook brings jointly thirty years' worthy of effects bound to curiosity someone whose study touches on quadratic types.

Fr ) mais que le rang de la matrice jacobienne associ´ee en x est n − dim X, alors X est lisse en x (attention : la r´eciproque n’est pas vraie). 4) Les points singuliers d’une hypersurface X dans Pn d’id´eal engendr´e par un polynˆ ome homog`ene F de degr´e d sont d´efinis par les ´equations F (x) = ∂F ∂F (x) = · · · = (x) = 0. ∂T0 ∂Tn En effet, si x = (1, x1 , . . , xn ) est dans X, on a I(X ∩ U0 ) = (F ) (exerc. 2)). Le point x est singulier sur X si et seulement s’il l’est sur X ∩ U0 , c’est-`a-dire si et ∂F seulement si ∂F ∂Ti (x) = ∂Ti (x) = 0 pour i = 1, .

Applications finies Nous nous int´eressons maintenant aux applications r´eguli`eres dont les fibres sont finies. Sous l’hypoth`ese que la vari´et´e de d´epart est projective, nous allons voir qu’elles ont une propri´et´e alg´ebrique. 28. Soient X et Y des vari´et´es et u : X → Y une application The r´eguli`ere. On suppose que X est projective et que toutes les fibres de u sont finies. Tout point de Y a un voisinage affine V tel que U = u−1 (V ) est encore affine et que le morphisme u∗ : A(V ) → A(U ) fasse de A(U ) un A(V )-module de type fini.

Soient A un anneau local noeth´erien, m son id´eal maximal et k = A/m son corps r´esiduel. Lorsque A est l’anneau local d’une vari´et´e alg´ebrique en un point, on a vu dimk m/m2 ≥ dim A. Cette in´egalit´e reste vraie en g´en´eral, et on dit que A est r´egulier s’il y a ´egalit´e. 3. LE THEOR EME PRINCIPAL DE ZARISKI 45 anneau local noeth´erien soit r´egulier, il faut et il suffit que son id´eal maximal puisse ˆetre engendr´e par dim A ´el´ements. En particulier, pour qu’un anneau local noeth´erien A de dimension 1 soit r´egulier, il faut et il suffit que son id´eal maximal soit principal ; cela entraˆıne que A est local et principal : c’est un anneau de valuation discr`ete.
