Need to add descriptions of contributions of Mumford

1. geometric invariant theory

2. moduli of curves

 (including the construction of Mumford curves)

3. moduli of abelian varieties

 (including algebraic theta functions,  Mumford's construction
 of degenerating abelian varieties, local moduli of abelian
 varieties through Cartier theory, Mumford-Tate groups and
 Mumford-Tate conjecture)

4. torus embedding and toroidal embedding of locally symmetric varieties

5. vector bundles

6. pathologies

7. classifaction of surfaces

8. zero cycles

The text says "Tanzania" but the McTutor article says "Tasmania". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:13, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

This article seems like a list of facts at times. It needs some organization, maybe create and Early life section and merge it with family. Otherwise just needs to be made more encyclopedic before it can be considered for B-class--Cronholm144 00:38, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
