Algebra, Arithmetic, and Geometry: In Honor of Yu. I. Manin consists of invited expository articles and new developments extending from Yuri I. Manin s outstanding contributions to algebra, algebraic geometry, number theory, algorithmic complexity, noncommutative geometry and mathematical physics.
Among Manin s numerous achievements are the proof of the functional analogue of the Mordell conjecture, the theory of Gauss--Manin connection, the proof with V. Iskovskikh of the nonrationality of smooth quartic threefolds, the theory of $p$-adic automorphic functions, and the theory of quantum computations.
