Algebraic Geometry I (V4A1)
Prof. Huybrechts
Montag 12 c.t. - 14, On Mondays: Grosser Hoersaal, Wegelerstr. 10
Donnerstag 14 c.t. - 16, Kleiner Hoersaal, Wegelerstr. 10
First lecture on Monday, 19th, no lecture on Thursday, 22nd!
The course will be taugth in English. It is recommended to all Bachelor students who plan to write a bachelor thesis in algebraic geometry in the workgroup.
Part II will be taugth in the following term.

This course is an introduction to the language of schemes (including sheaves and their cohomology), which are (ringed) spaces that locally look like the spectrum of a commutative ring. This is the language of modern algebraic geometry and was mainly developed by Grothendieck. The focus of the course will really be on schemes and not so much varieties (which will only be touched upon occasionally). Prerequisite for this course is a good knowledge of commutative algebra (to the extent of last term's course Algebra I).
One of the founders of the theory, David Mumford, wrote in 1975:
[Algebraic geometry] seems to have acquired the reputation of being esoteric, exclusive, and very abstract, with adherents who are secretly plotting to take over all the rest of mathematics! In one respect this last point is accurate ...

    Details zu den Uebungen (V4A1)

    Seminar zur Algebraischen Geometrie (Modul S2A1)
    Prof. Huybrechts; Dr. Stefan Schreieder
    Donnerstag, 16:00 ct - 18:00 Uhr, Endenicher Allee 60, Seminarraum 0.008
    Die Teilnahme wird allen Studenten empfohlen, die planen, im SS 2016 eine Bachelorarbeit in der AG zu schreiben.

    Seminar on Algebraic Geometry (Modul S4A1): Bend and Break
    Dr. Vladimir Lazic
    Dienstag, 12:00 ct - 14:00 Uhr, Endenicher Allee 60, Seminarraum 1.007

    Graduate Seminar on Algebraic Geometry (Modul S4A1):
    SFB-Transregio-45-Seminar zur Algebraischen Geometrie

    Prof. Huybrechts
    Dienstag 14:00 ct - 16:00 Uhr, Endenicher Allee 60, SR 0.011
    Usually we would use the Tuesday slot to learn something new, but this term it seems more appropriate to give all the newcommers and guests a chance to present their area and recent work.
    All talks will be individually announced in the weekly program.

    Graduate Seminar on Algebraic Geometry (SAG) (Modul S4A1):
    Gastvortraege zu aktuellen Ergebnissen der algebraischen und komplexen Geometrie

    Donnerstag 10.30 Uhr, Hoersaal MPI, Vivatsgasse 7
