About the Author

Simon Donaldson gained a BA from Cambridge in 1979. In 1980 he began graduate work in Oxford, supervised by Nigel Hitchin and Sir Michael Atiyah. His PhD thesis studied mathematical aspects of Yang-Mills theory. In 1986, aged 29, he was awarded a Fields Medal and was elected to the Royal Society. He was Wallis Professor of Mathematics in Oxford between 1985 and 1998 when he moved to Imperial College London. Most of his work since has been on the interface between differential geometry and complex algebraic geometry. The recipient of numerous awards, including the Shaw Prize in 2009 with Clifford Taubes, he is also a Foreign Member of the US, French & Swedish academies. Donaldson has supervised more than 40 doctoral students, many of whom have gone on to become leading figures in research.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am partial to the Donaldson-style of mathematics and I very excitedly ordered a copy when I heard of it publication. This is an old subject, many treatises have been written about it, so what more can one expect from yet another monograph? I would say, that this book offers you Donaldson's perspective on the subject, always superbly clear and efficient, informed by the author's own extensive experience, and revealing the depths of the subject with an ease that would make Fred Astaire jealous. It has a geometric bias and it brings you from zero to where modern research begins. This is a good place to start if you want to learn about this subject that branches out into many other areas of mathematics and theoretical physics.
