Synopsis:
This is an introductory lecture to algebraic geometry. We will assume
nothing beyond a reasonable undergraduate education. Formally I intend to
proceed along the lines of the book "An Invitation to Algebraic Geometry"
but depending on the enthusiasm and the motivation of the class I may cover some
cohomology, Riemann-Roch theorems and some classification theorems of curves and
even of surfaces. Mentioning of the classification of threefolds need not be
excluded either! For every extra subject I will provide class notes.
Recommended Text Books:
Karen E. Smith et al, An Invitation to Algebraic Geometry, Springer, 2000.
J. Harris, Algebraic Geometry, Springer, 1992.
R. Hartshorne, Algebraic Geometry, Springer, 1977.
