Algebraic Geometry (AlgGeo)
Algebraic Geometry is the study of geometric structures arising
solution sets of polynomial equations, and forms a central part of
modern mathematics. It has numerous applications, ranging from number
theory to theoretical physics.
The course will be an introduction to Algebraic Geometry, and will
cover the following topics:
Algebraic sets, affine and projective varieties, fundamental properties
of varieties. Sheaves and locally ringed spaces. Morphisms of varieties, birational maps and blow-ups. Smoothness and singularities. Hilbert polynomials and Bezout's theorem.
