- Text: Algebraic Geometry, Robin Hartshorne.
- Content: We will continue from where we left off
in May, starting from Section II.5 and maybe
cover parts of Chapter IV,
in addition to background topics,
depending on the interests of the class.
- Goals: To give students a foundation
and some self-sufficiency for further
study and reading in Algebraic Geometry.
- Homework: There will be periodic homework assignments.
The goal of the assignments is to help students deepen their
understanding of the material. It is perfectly
acceptable to discuss assignments with other students.
In order to get the most out of the class and the feedback
I will give on write ups, each student
should write up his or her final solution independently.
- Exams: There will be no exams.
- Grades: Your semester grade will be determined by
the following items with the weights given:
