Algebraische Geometrie II


Lectures are on Monday 14-16h (SR 6) and Tuesday 14-16h (SR 10). The room will be announced.

The lecture will be held in german or english.


This course provides an introduction to modern algebraic geometry. The main goal is to develop the language of sheaves, schemes and cohomology theory. We will mostly follow the chapters II and III in the standard text book of Robin Harthorne. The prerequisites for this course are a solid foundation of undergraduate abstract algebra, knowledge of commutative algebra and basic projective geometry as covered in the preceding course on algebraic geometry.
