This volume is the outcome of the conference "Algebraic Geometry in East Asia. II" which was held at the Conference Hall (Hanoi, Vietnam) during October 10 - October 14, 2005. It collects two survey articles and eight research articles contributed by the invited lecturers. Topics touched upon in this volume include: Zariski pairs, rational homogeneous manifolds, Kummer surfaces, singularity theory, Cremona groups, algebraic curves, dual varieties, Castelnuovo-Weil lattices and so on. The reader can not only find the current status of a variety of research topics but also enjoy the art of the subjects by leading algebraic geometers.Published by Mathematical Society of Japan and distributed by World Scientific Publishing Co. for all markets except North America
