Geometric Invariant Theory

  title={Geometric Invariant Theory},
  author={David Mumford},
“Geometric Invariant Theory” by Mumford/Fogarty (the first edition was published in 1965, a second, enlarged edition appeared in 1982) is the standard reference on applications of invariant theory to the construction of moduli spaces. This third, revised edition has been long awaited for by the mathematical community. It is now appearing in a completely updated and enlarged version with an additional chapter on the moment map by Prof. Frances Kirwan (Oxford) and a fully updated bibliography of… 
Modern Developments in Invariant Theory
Invariant theory, which is almost one and a half centuries old, is now going through a new period of vigorous development: a satisfactory comprehension of a general picture within the classical

Extracting invariants of isolated hypersurface singularities from their moduli algebras
We use classical invariant theory to construct invariants of complex graded Gorenstein algebras of finite vector space dimension. As a consequence, we obtain a way of extracting certain numerical
Donaldson-Thomas invariants vs. intersection cohomology for categories of homological dimension one
The present paper is an extension of a previous paper written in collaboration with Markus Reineke dealing with quiver representations. The aim of the paper is to generalize the theory and to provide
The moduli space of curves
Developments in theoretical physics, in particular in conformal field theory, have led to a surprising connection to algebraic geometry, and especially to the fundamental concept of the moduli space
Some problems in algebraic group theory
For smooth actions of compact Lie groups on differentiable manifolds, the existence of a smooth slice transversal to each orbit gives a clear description of the local structure. In 1973, D. Luna
K3 surfaces with involution, equivariant analytic torsion, and automorphic forms on the moduli space IV: The structure of the invariant
Abstract Yoshikawa in [Invent. Math. 156 (2004), 53–117] introduces a holomorphic torsion invariant of $K3$ surfaces with involution. In this paper we completely determine its structure as an
Theta-stratifications, Theta-reductive stacks, and applications
These are expanded notes on a lecture of the same title at the 2015 AMS summer institute in algebraic geometry. We give an introduction and overview of the "beyond geometric invariant theory" program
