By Spencer J. Bloch
This booklet is the long-awaited ebook of the recognized Irvine lectures. introduced in 1978 on the collage of California at Irvine, those lectures grew to become out to be an access element to a number of intimately-connected new branches of mathematics algebraic geometry, resembling regulators and targeted values of L-functions of algebraic kinds, specific formulation for them by way of polylogarithms, the speculation of algebraic cycles, and at last the overall idea of combined causes which unifies and underlies the entire above (and a lot more). within the two decades for the reason that, the significance of Bloch's lectures has now not decreased. A fortunate staff of individuals operating within the above components had the nice fortune to own a replica of outdated typewritten notes of those lectures.
