The authors ran a seminar on Integral Quadratic Forms at the
Institute for Advanced Study in the Spring of 1982, and worked on a
book-length manuscript reporting on the topic throughout the 1980's
and early 1990's. Some new results which are proved in the manuscript
were announced in two brief papers in the Proceedings of the Japan
Academy of Sciences in 1985 and 1986.
We are making this preliminary version of the manuscript available
at this time in the hope that it will be useful. Still to do before the
manuscript is in final form: final editing of some portions, completion
of the bibliography, and the addition of a chapter on the application
to K3 surfaces.
