Description - Quadratic Forms with Applications to Algebraic Geometry and Topology by Albrecht Pfister

This volume discusses results about quadratic forms that give rise to interconnections among number theory, algebra, algebraic geometry, and topology. The author deals with various topics including Hilbert's 17th problem, the Tsen-Lang theory of quasi-algebraically closed fields, the level of topological spaces, and systems of quadratic forms over arbitrary fields. Whenever possible, proofs are short and elegant, and the author has made this book as self-contained as possible. This book brings together thirty years' worth of results certain to interest anyone whose research touches on quadratic forms.
