- Text: Algebraic Geometry, Robin Hartshorne.
- Content: We will do Chapter 2 and maybe parts of Chapters 1 and 4,
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.

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:
