Algebraic Geometry 1: From Algebraic Varieties to Schemes

Email Required, but never shown. Introduction to Algebraic Geometry.

Yes, that’s much better. It is the standard reference and is also cheap compared to others.

In recent talks it was even used as the almost exclusively! It is then possible, with only a little additional work, to discover their usefulness. Yasiru reviews will soon be removed and linked to blog kenii it as to-read Aug 14, However, it barely even mentions the concept of a module of a scheme, and I believe it ignores sheaf cohomology entirely.

Dear Andrew L, Why?

Algebraic Geometry by Kenji Ueno

I love Part 1 and Part 3 of Liu’s book, but I believe that another reference is necessary for cohomology.

You’ll have to study from other sources as well but I believe that this book does a pretty good job at motivating the abstract definitions. I know it’s a scary pages of French, but It’s really easy French.


I believe the issue of “which book is best” is extremely sensitive to the path along which one is moving into the subject. This isn’t really an algebraic geometry textbook. This book isn’t easy to read and you have to work out a lot, but the rewards are great.

I think these notes are quickly becoming legendary,like Mumford’s notes were before publication. But as a reference for a non-expert, it’s pretty off-putting, I find.

Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. I can believe it’s a wonderful reference, but I’ve found grometry unsatisfying at the conceptual level. I’ve found it quite rewarding to to familiarize myself with the contents of EGA. It is also available in paperback: Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams. I am also currently learning about sheaves and schemes, and I’m finding Ravi Vakil’s notes to be very helpful: It’s also very well written, in my opinion.

The red book by Mumford is nice, better than Hartshorne in my opinion which is nice as well. Whlile many of the above books are excellent, it’s a surprise that these books aren’t the standard.

It is a very complete book even introducing some needed commutative algebra and preparing the reader to algebrajc arithmetic geometry like Mordell’s conjecture, Faltings’ or even Fermat-Wiles Theorem. As is, the only people who can appreciate this answer are the people who already know what you’re trying to tell them.


Best Algebraic Geometry text book? (other than Hartshorne) – MathOverflow

The Berkeley math dept requires its grad students to pass a language exam which consists of translating a page of math in French, German, or Russian into English. It develops a lot of algebraic geometry without so much lagebraic commutative and homological algebra algegraic the modern books tend to emphasize.

A geoemtry is a way of keeping track of local information defined on a topological space, such as the local holomorphic f Algebraic geometry is built upon two fundamental notions: Professor Vakil has informed people at his site that this year’s version of the notes will be posted in September at his blog.

Hartshorne – “Deformation Theory”. Shafarevich wrote a very basic introduction, it’s used in undergraduate classes in algebraic geometry sometimes. The uniqueness claim is a bit strong: At a lower level then Hartshorne is the fantastic “Algebraic Curves” by Fulton. I realized that I could work through the sections and solve some of the problems, but I gained absolutely no intuition for reading Hartshorne.

At least, I may get some basic notions fastly and also see some concrete examples.
