Geometric Invariant Theory
Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete. 2. Folge
This standard reference on applications of invariant theory to the construction of moduli spaces is a systematic exposition of the geometric aspects of classical theory of polynomial invariants. This new, revised edition is completely updated and enlarged with an additional chapter on the moment map by Professor Frances Kirwan. It includes a fully updated bibliography of work in this area.
