Aimed essentially at graduate scholars and starting researchers, this booklet presents an advent to algebraic geometry that's quite appropriate for people with no earlier touch with the topic and assumes purely the traditional history of undergraduate algebra. it really is constructed from a masters direction given on the Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, and focusses on projective algebraic geometry over an algebraically closed base field.

The booklet begins with easily-formulated issues of non-trivial strategies – for instance, Bézout’s theorem and the matter of rational curves – and makes use of those difficulties to introduce the elemental instruments of recent algebraic geometry: size; singularities; sheaves; forms; and cohomology. The remedy makes use of as little commutative algebra as attainable by means of quoting with out evidence (or proving in basic terms in targeted circumstances) theorems whose facts isn't really invaluable in perform, the concern being to strengthen an figuring out of the phenomena instead of a mastery of the strategy. a number routines is equipped for every subject mentioned, and a variety of difficulties and examination papers are accumulated in an appendix to supply fabric for additional learn.

Example text

Let (X, OX ) and (Y, OY ) be two ringed spaces. A morphism of ringed spaces is given by a continuous map ϕ : X → Y , which transforms good functions into good functions by composition. In other words, for any function g : U → k such that g ∈ Γ (U, OY ) we should have gϕ ∈ Γ (ϕ−1 U, OX ). 9. a) We note that when, for example, the sheaf in question is the sheaf of differentiable functions, the composition condition is equivalent to the requirement that f be a differentiable map. b) For any open set U of Y we define a homomorphism of rings ϕ∗U : Γ (U, OY ) −→ Γ (ϕ−1 U, OX ) by setting ϕ∗U (g) = gϕ.

B) If X is of the form U1 ∪ U2 , where the sets Ui are open and irreducible, and U1 ∩ U2 = ∅, show that X is irreducible. c) If Y ⊂ X and Y is irreducible, show that Y is irreducible. , if every element e in A such that e2 = e is equal to 0 or 1). a) Prove that every integral domain is connected. b) If A is the direct product of two non-trivial rings, prove that A is not connected. c) Conversely, if A possesses a non-trivial idempotent e, prove that A A/(e) × A/(1 − e). d) Let V be an affine algebraic set over an algebraically closed field k.

It is easy to check that this is an isomorphism. (It is enough to check this fact on standard open sets, cf. 4. The group of invertible matrices with complex coefficients GL(n, C) is an affine algebraic variety. In fact, it is an open set of the form 2 D(f ) in the affine space of matrices M (n, C) = Cn , f being the determinant function, which is a polynomial. In the following proposition we show that the affine variety morphisms between two affine algebraic sets are exactly the maps defined in Chapter I.
