There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The theory of schemes was explained in Algebraic Geometry 1: He puts the condition “F emptyset is trivial” into the definition of presheaf, when really it belongs in the definition of sheaf.

Kenji Ueno’s three-volume “Algebraic Geometry” is well-written, clear, and has the perfect mix of text and diagrams. And this is a very good introductory textbook, albebraic teaches commutative algebra rigorously but at the same time provides a good geometric explanation. Oh, I’m a big fan of the book.

I realized that I could work through the sections and solve some of the problems, but I gained absolutely no intuition for reading Hartshorne. Email Required, but never shown.

It does build the subject from the ground up, just like Bourbaki’s “Elements of mathematics” builds mathematics from the ground up, but it is less pedagogical by comparison which is understandable. Very complete proves Riemann-Roch for curves in an easy language and concrete in classic constructions needed to understand the reasons about why things are done the way they are in advanced purely algebraic books.


I’d expect to see that in huge letters near the definition of scheme. Many algebraic geometry students are able to say with confidence “that’s one of the exercises in Hartshorne, chapter II, section 4.

At a lower level then Hartshorne is the fantastic “Algebraic Curves” by Fulton. I totally, absolutely agree about Shafarevitch being the best textbook. Shafarevich wrote a geomery basic introduction, it’s used in undergraduate classes in algebraic geometry sometimes.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. If your background is in differential geometry, complex analysis, etc, then Huybrechts’ Complex Geometry is a good bridge between those vantage points and a more algebraic geometric landscape. The second half then jumps into a categorical introduction to schemes, bits of cohomology and even glimpses of intersection theory. The only differences between the first and second editions of Mumford’s Red Book are the numerous typographical errors introduced during its incompetent TeXing Introduction to Algebraic Geometry It is also available in paperback: I wish I could understand it better there are interesting things there that I can’t find elsewhere.

The book is very complete and everything seems to be done “in the nicest way”. Also lots of things on jmilne. Gathmann – “Algebraic Geometry” which can be found here.

Algebgaic up using Facebook. Of course, by then, you are really wanting sheaves and line bundles! I think the best “textbook” is Ravi Vakil’s notes: Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams.

Nitin CR added it Nov 11, It does not go into cohomology and more advanced stuff, which is the subject of the other two books.

Zhaoliang He rated it really liked it Nov 12, If Griffiths-Harris is “algebraic geometry” then surely Huybrechts is as well! However, I think it can, for certain people, help to ease the transition into one.

I assure you it is not pages of fluff. Arturo Magidin k 32 I’m really envious of the people who learn directly from the master Grothendieck.
