The convention on Algebraic Geometry, held in Berlin 9-15 March 1988, used to be organised through the Sektion Mathematik of the Humboldt-Universitat. The establishing committee consisted of H. Kurke, W. Kleinert, G. Pfister and M. Roczen. The convention is one in a sequence organised by means of the Humboldt-Universitat at ordinary periods of 2 or 3 years, with the aim of offering a gathering position for mathematicians from jap and western international locations. the current quantity comprises embellishments of a part of the lectures awarded on the convention and a few articles on comparable matters. All papers have been topic to the typical refereeing technique of Compositio Mathematica, and H. Kurke acted as a visitor editor of this magazine. The papers specialise in real subject matters in algebraic geometry and singularity idea, similar to vector bundles, arithmetical algebraic geometry, intersection thought, moduli and Hodge concept. we're thankful to all those that, by means of their hospitality, their presence on the Con ference, their help or their written contributions, have made this convention to successful. The editors Compositio Mathematica seventy six: viii, 1990.

**Adaptive Control, Filtering, and Signal Processing**

The world of adaptive platforms, which encompasses recursive identity, adaptive keep an eye on, filtering, and sign processing, has been the most lively components of the earlier decade. for the reason that adaptive controllers are essentially nonlinear controllers that are utilized to nominally linear, almost certainly stochastic and time-varying structures, their theoretical research is generally very tough.

**New Developments in the Visualization and Processing of Tensor Fields**

Bringing jointly key researchers in disciplines starting from visualization and photograph processing to purposes in structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, elastography, and numerical arithmetic, the workshop that generated this edited quantity used to be the 3rd within the winning Dagstuhl sequence. Its target, mirrored within the caliber and relevance of the papers provided, was once to foster collaboration and clean strains of inquiry within the research and visualization of tensor fields, which supply a concise version for varied actual phenomena.

**Limitations and Potentials for Biological Nitrogen Fixation in the Tropics**

The fifteenth Latin American Symposium ''laS held in Brasilia (FD) on J1UY 18-22, 1977, on an issue of serious curiosity for agriculture, specially within the tropics. Many new advancements have taken position within the box of study in N2 fixation over the past few years. They "Tere made attainable by way of the enhanced tools of measuring of nitrogenase task, growth in genetic engineering fields and the elevated curiosity in making the most of traditional resources for organic nitrogen fixation.

**Vegetation and climate interactions in semi-arid regions**

The chapters during this part position the issues of crops and weather interactions in semi-arid areas into the context which recur during the publication. First, Verstraete and Schwartz evaluate desertification as a strategy of international swap comparing either the human and climatic elements. The subject of human effect and land administration is mentioned additional by way of Roberts whose assessment specializes in semi-arid land-use making plans.

Ii). 2) EXAMPLE (with isolated singularities for V). Let f = xyz(x + y + z), n = 2. Then V consists of 4 lines in general position in p 2 and its topology is simple to describe. However, the dimensions of the eigenspaces H'(F)a are more subtle invariants. First we compute explicit bases for the homogeneous components of Q(f): Q(f)o = (l>,Q(f)1 =

0 + dim11k - 1 (F)0 = dim Hk(U") + dim 11k-(U). It follows that the first and the last map in the above exact sequence are trivial. 0 as above. 19) Hk + 1 (Cf+ f')o ..... e. W is a sum W 1 + ... 19) is commutative up to a constant. The big rectangle in the diagram is commutative in a similar way by the next result. 20) LEMMA. Ri*b(}1/1 = -l/Nb(}. Proof We have to show that both sides of this equality yield the same result when applied to an element W = w 1 + ... + wp E Hk(Cf)c as above. Since these computations are rather tedious, we treat here only the case p = 2 and let the reader check that the general case is completely similar.

Proof. Let p: pn --+ P be the projection presenting P as the quotient ofpn under the group G(w), the product of cyclic groups of orders Wi. Then J = p*(f) = f(x'O°, .. , x:n) is a homogeneous polynomial of degree N and let U be the complement of the hypersurface J = 0 in pn. 2) for U. To simplify the notation, we assume that w = (1, ... ,1) from the beginning. Then U is smooth and it is easier to describe the construction of the Hodge filtration [24]. Let p: X --+ pn be a proper modification with X smooth, D = p-l(V) a divisor with normal crossings in X and (J = X\D isomorphic to U via p.
