The 2005 AMS summer time Institute on Algebraic Geometry in Seattle was once a massive occasion. With over 500 members, together with some of the world's major specialists, it was once might be the biggest convention on algebraic geometry ever held. those complaints volumes current study and expository papers via essentially the most extraordinary audio system on the assembly, vividly conveying the grandeur and vigour of the topic. the main fascinating issues in present algebraic geometry examine obtain very considerable remedy. for example, there's enlightening info on some of the most recent technical instruments, from jet schemes and derived different types to algebraic stacks. a variety of papers delve into the geometry of assorted moduli areas, together with these of sturdy curves, solid maps, coherent sheaves, and abelian kinds. different papers speak about the hot dramatic advances in higher-dimensional bi rational geometry, whereas nonetheless others hint the impact of quantum box idea on algebraic geometry through replicate symmetry, Gromov - Witten invariants, and symplectic geometry. The court cases of past algebraic geometry AMS Institutes, held at Woods gap, Arcata, Bowdoin, and Santa Cruz, became classics. the current volumes promise to be both influential. They current the state-of-the-art in algebraic geometry in papers that may have huge curiosity and enduring price

If A is a k–algebra, then sm takes an A–valued point of X given by u : Spec A → X to the composition u Spec A[t]/(tm+1 ) → Spec A → X, the ﬁrst arrow being induced by the inclusion A → A[t]/(tm+1 ). x Note that if γ ∈ Jm (X) is a jet lying over x ∈ X, then γm lies in the closure of ∗ Φm (k × {γ}). Since every irreducible component Z of Jm (X) is preserved by the x k∗ –action, this implies that if γ is an m–jet in Z that lies over x ∈ X, then also γm is in Z. This will be very useful for the applications in §8.

2 that J∞ (X) = J∞ (Z) ∪ Im(f∞ ). JET SCHEMES AND SINGULARITIES 515 27 11 Moreover, the nonsingular case implies that J∞ (X ), hence also Im(f∞ ), is irreducible. Therefore, in order to complete the proof it is enough to show that J∞ (Z) is contained in the closure of Im(f∞ ). Consider the irreducible decomposition Z = Z1 ∪ . . ∪ Zr , inducing J∞ (Z) = J∞ (Z1 ) ∪ . . ∪ J∞ (Zr ). Since f is surjective, for every i there is an irreducible component Zi of f −1 (Zi ) such that the induced map Zi → Zi is surjective.

1 for a quick review of some basic facts about the dimension of constructible subsets. 3), this is well-deﬁned. 3, the closure of ψm (J∞ (X)) is equal to the closure in Jm (X) of the JET SCHEMES AND SINGULARITIES 525 37 21 mth jet scheme of the nonsingular locus of Xred . 10). For an arbitrary cylinder C we put C (e) := C ∩ Conte (JacX ) and codim(C) := min{codim(C (e) ) | e ∈ N} (by convention, if C ⊆ J∞ (Xsing ), we have codim(C) = ∞).
