It is a reprinting of the revised moment variation (1974) of David Mumford's vintage 1970 publication. It supplies a scientific account of the elemental effects approximately abelian forms. It contains expositions of analytic tools acceptable over the floor box of advanced numbers, in addition to of scheme-theoretic equipment used to house inseparable isogenies while the floor box has optimistic attribute. A self-contained evidence of the lifestyles of the twin abelian style is given. The constitution of the hoop of endomorphisms of an abelian sort is mentioned. those are appendices on Tate's theorem on endomorphisms of abelian forms over finite fields (by C. P. Ramanujam) and at the Mordell - Weil theorem (by Yuri Manin).David Mumford was once presented the 2007 AMS Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition. in accordance with the quotation: '"Abelian Varieties"...remains the definitive account of the subject...the classical conception is superbly intertwined with the fashionable concept, in a manner which sharply illuminates both...[It] will stay for the foreseeable destiny a vintage to which the reader returns over and over'.
