Bibliotheca Mathematica: A Series of Monographs on Pure and Applied Mathematics, Volume VIII: Geometry of Numbers focuses on bodies and lattices in the n-dimensional euclidean space. The text first discusses convex bodies and lattice points and the covering constant and inhomogeneous determinant of a set. Topics include the inhomogeneous determinant of a set, covering constant of a set, theorem of Minkowski-Hlawka, packing of convex bodies, successive minima and determinant of a set, successive minima of a convex body, extremal bodies, and polar reciprocal convex bodies. The publication ponders on star bodies, as well as points of critical lattices on the boundary, reducible, and irreducible star bodies and reduction of automorphic star bodies. The manuscript reviews homogeneous and inhomogeneous s forms and some methods. Discussions focus on asymmetric inequalities, inhomogeneous forms in more variables, indefinite binary quadratic forms, diophantine approximation, sums of powers of linear forms, spheres and quadratic forms, and a method of Blichfeldt and Mordell. The text is a dependable reference for researchers and mathematicians interested in bodies and lattices in the n-dimensional euclidean space.
