# 401-3146-12L Algebraic Geometry

Semester | Spring Semester 2016 |

Lecturers | R. Pandharipande |

Periodicity | yearly recurring course |

Language of instruction | English |

Abstract | This course is an Introduction to Algebraic Geometry (algebraic varieties and schemes). |

Objective | |

Literature | The main reference for the course is * Robin Hartshorne, Algebraic Geometry, Graduate Texts in Mathematics, Springer. For the exercises we will also use * Joe Harris, Algebraic Geometry, A First Course, Graduate Texts in Mathematics, Springer. There are also some very good texts that are freely available online. I recommend two of them: * J.S. Milne, Algebraic Geometry, http://www.jmilne.org/math/CourseNotes/AG.pdf (mainly about abstract algebraic varieties - schemes only appear in the very end) * Ravi Vakil, Foundations of Algebraic Geometry, http://math.stanford.edu/~vakil/216blog/ (quite abstract) Further readings: * I. R. Shafarevich, Basic Algebraic geometry 1 & 2, Springer-Verlag. * Ulrich Görtz and Torsten Wedhorn, Algebraic Geometry I, Advanced Lectures in Mathematics, Springer. * Jean Gallier and Stephen S. Shatz, Algebraic Geometry http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~jean/algeom/steve01.html |
