MTH 672: Algebraic Geometry

This course is intended to provide the basics of algebraic geometry for graduate students who intend to work in algebra, algebraic geometry, computational algebra, etc. Topics to be discussed are algebraic varieties, maps between varieties, Hilbert's Nullstellensatz, Zariski topology, abelian varieties, the Riemann-Roch theorem, Jacobians of curves, sheaves and cohomology, etc. Basic knowledge of commutative ring theory, field theory, Galois theory, and group theory will be assumed.
