Applications of patching to quadratic forms and central simple algebras. The emphasis here is placed on results about quadratic forms that give rise to interconnections between number theory, algebra, algebraic geometry and topology. Inventiones mathematicae, Vol. 178, Issue. Topics discussed include Hilbert's 17th problem, the Tsen-Lang theory of quasi algebraically closed fields, the level of topological spaces and systems of quadratic forms over arbitrary fields. Whenever possible proofs are short and elegant, and the author's aim was to make this book as self-contained as possible.

This volume discusses results about quadratic forms that give rise to interconnections among number theory, algebra, algebraic geometry, and topology. The author deals with various topics including Hilbert's 17th problem, the Tsen-Lang theory of quasi-algebraically closed fields, the level of topological spaces, and systems of quadratic forms over arbitrary fields. Whenever possible, proofs are short and elegant, and the author has made this book as self-contained as possible

Albrecht Pfister 1976. Pfister received his doctoral degree in 1961 at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. The title of his doctoral thesis was Über das der beschränkten Funktionen von zwei Veränderlichen ("On the coefficient problem of the bounded functions of two variables"). His thesis advisors were Martin Kneser and Karl Stein. In 1966 he received his habilitation at the Georg August University of Göttingen. Quadratic forms with applications to algebraic geometry and topology.

The remainder of the book focuses on three active areas of contemporary algebra: homological algebra algebraic combinatorics and algebraic topology and algebraic geometry.
