AS.110.435. Introduction to Algebraic Geometry. 4.0 Credits.

Algebraic geometry studies zeros of polynomials in several variables and is based on the use of abstract algebraic techniques, mainly from commutative algebra, for solving geometric problems about these sets of zeros. The fundamental objects of study are algebraic varieties which are the geometric manifestations of solutions of systems of polynomial equations. Algebraic geometry occupies a central place in modern mathematics and has multiple conceptual connections with diverse fields such as complex analysis, topology and number theory. This course aims to provide to an undergraduate student majoring in mathematics the fundamental background to approach the study of algebraic geometry by providing the needed abstract knowledge also complemented by several examples and applications.
