Yes, it might be good idea to include volume 2 in the answer as well, the book is highly readable. Whlile many of the above books are excellent, it’s a surprise that these books aren’t the standard.
Shafarevich wrote a very basic introduction, it’s used in undergraduate classes in algebraic geometry sometimes. When a cheaper paperback edition is released by Cambridge Press any serious student of algebraic geometry should own a copy since, again, it is one of those titles that help motivate and give conceptual insights needed to make any sense of abstract monographs like the next ones.
Could someone suggest me how to learn some basic theory of schemes? It’s certainly very systematic with lots of exercises and a wonderful reference book, but it’s only useful to people who somehow got the motivation to study abstract algebraic geometry, not as the first book.
It is suitable as a text for an introductory course on algebraic geometry. I think almost everyone agrees that Hartshorne’s Algebraic Geometry is still the best. Arturo Magidin k 32 This is the first of three volumes on algebraic geometry.
They do not prove Riemann-Roch which is done classically without cohomology in the previous recommendation so a modern more orthodox course would be Perrin’s “Algebraic Geometry, An Introduction”, which in fact introduce cohomology and prove RR. The material is illustrated by examples and figures, and some exercises provide the option to verify one’s progress.
The Cox, Little, O’Shea books are what I use when introducing the subject to someone with less background, or more concrete interests. Amazingly well written and unique on the topic, summarizing and bringing together lots of information, results, and many many examples. One of my favorites. From Algebraic Knji to Schemes.
Then, sheaves are introduced and studied, using as few prerequisites as possible. As is, the only people who can appreciate this answer are the people who already know what you’re trying to tell algeebraic. Homoionym added it Aug 18, Refresh and try again. The link to the PDF isn’t working for me. Then chapter two geomtry first some properties of this set of prime ideals, or prime spectrum of a ring, making it into a topological space with the Zariski topology I enjoyed Griffiths-Harri s a lot.
Sheaves and Cohomology Translations of Mathematical Monographs. I must admit that I find it almost unreadable, owing to the old-fashioned language.
AMS :: Ueno: Algebraic Geometry 1: From Algebraic Varieties to Schemes
Found in the very beautifull 2nd collection – when I got it from the library I could not stop reading in it, which happens to me rarely with such collections, despite the associated kenjo. As for motivation for schemes, this is a good read after you acquired some knowledge of schemes.
The Macdonald book is really good. Check out Dolgachev’s review. I’m sure that many other schools have similar requirements.
I actually love Liu’s approach. Dual Price 2 Label: Shafaravich’s Basic AG I is excellent in this regard. It is a classic and although the flavor is clearly of typed concise notes, it is by far the shortest but thorough book on curves, which serves as a very a,gebraic introduction to the whole subject.
It is the best free course in my opinion, to get enough algebraic geometry background to understand the aalgebraic more advanced and abstract titles. Introduction to Algebraic Geometry.
It is also available in paperback: Griffiths; Harris – “Principles of Algebraic Geometry”. To ask other readers questions about Algebraic Geometryplease sign up. Ordering on the AMS Bookstore is limited geometfy individuals for personal use only. In particular, it is noted how an extension of the definitions to include these cases would need to take into account not only the set of maximal allgebraic, but the set of all prime ideals.
In lieu of a language exam, have the students translate a few pages of EGA.
Additional Material for the Book
It can be a book, preprint, online lecture note, webpage, etc. I’m really envious of the people who learn directly from the master Grothendieck. This first volume gives a definition of schemes and describes some of their elementary properties. The theory of schemes was explained in Algebraic Geometry usno
