The Modern Birkhäuser Classics series aims to bring back into print (and in electronic form) older books that have become important references in their field. Vector Bundles on Complex Projective Spaces was originally published in 1980 as volume three in the Progress in Mathematics series, with a second edition appearing in 1987. Apart from the fact that this version has been typeset, the main change is the inclusion of (an English translation of) an appendix by S. I. Gelfand that originally appeared in the Russian edition of the book.
Introduction.- Chapter 1. Holomorphic vector bundles and the geometry of Pn.- Chapter 2. Stability and moduli spaces.- Bibliography.- Supplemental Bibliography.- Index.- Appendix A. Sheaves on Pn and problems in linear algebra.- Bibliography for Appendix A.
