MMA320 Introduction to Algebraic Geometry 7,5 hec

Algebraic geometry studies curves, surfaces and their generalisations in higher dimensions, which van be described by systems of polynomial equations. The coefficients of the polynomials are often taken to be complex numbers, but can lie in an arbitrary field. The course starts with the basic theory of affine and projective varieties. A first application is the group law on cubic curves. More advanced theory is developed to be able to treat the existence of lines on cubic surfaces. The course ends with the resolution of curve singularities.
The course is given
  • in the second half of autumn
  • every other year
  • the schedule is decided the first time
