 This volume contains 21 articles written by leading experts in the fields of algebraic and arithmetic geometry. The treated topics range over a variety of themes, including moduli spaces of curves and abelian varieties, algebraic cycles, vector bundles and coherent sheaves, curves over finite fields, and algebraic surfaces, among others. The volume originates from the conference "Geometry and Arithmetic," which was held on the island of Schiermonnikoog in The Netherlands in September 2010. A publication of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). Distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society.
