Cambridge Classical Studies #12: Undergraduate Algebraic Geometry Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Algebraic geometry is, essentially, the study of the solution of equations and occupies a central position in pure mathematics. With the minimum of prerequisites, Dr. Reid introduces the reader to the basic concepts of algebraic geometry, including: plane conics, cubics and the group law, affine and projective varieties, and nonsingularity and dimension. He stresses the connections the subject has with commutative algebra as well as its relation to topology, differential geometry, and number theory. The book contains numerous examples and exercises illustrating the theory.

Synopsis:

An introduction to algebraic geometry which covers the basic concepts of plane conics, cubics and group law, affine and projective varieties, and non-singularity and dimension. The connections with commutative algebra as well as topology, differential geometry and number theory are covered.

Synopsis:

This short and readable introduction to algebraic geometry will be ideal for all undergraduate mathematicians coming to the subject for the first time.

Table of Contents

1. Playing with plane curves; 2. The category of affine varieties; 3. Applications; Index.
