AMS :: Ueno: Algebraic Geometry 1: From Algebraic Varieties to Schemes

On the other hand, as a student my complaint was that it was not abstract enough didn’t treat non-alg. Ordering on the AMS Bookstore is limited kenhi individuals for personal use only.

Since I’m not an algebraic geometer, I don’t know whether I’m qualified to comment. Books by Kenji Ueno.

Algebraic Geometry by Kenji Ueno

So some people find it the best way to really master the subject. I wish I could understand it better there are interesting things there that I can’t find elsewhere. Shafarevich – “Basic Algebraic Geometry” vol. The first volume can serve almost as an introduction to complex geometry and the second to its topology. I only found the notes of previous years on the web. It’s available on his website. Discussing this with other people, I found that it was a common occurrence for students to read Hartshorne and afterwards have no idea how to do algebraic geometry.

Great exposition, useful contents and examples on topics one has to deal with sooner or later.

Algebraic Geometry

Hartshorne doesn’t always do things in the nicest possible way, and the same is of course true for Liu. I recently completed a book on algebraic geometry.


From Algebraic Varieties to Schemes. They may be the most complete on foundations for varieties up to introducing schemes and complex geometry, so they are very useful before more abstract studies.

It is the standard reference and is also cheap compared to others. As is, the only people who can appreciate this answer are the people who already know what you’re trying to tell them. Publication Month and Year: Print Price 1 Label: Is it a symptom of geomefry or a tendency of each generation to pick their own idols?

I totally, absolutely agree about Shafarevitch being the best textbook. Nitin CR added it Nov 11, Let me present my perspective on “Hartshorne is best issue”. From Algebraic Varieties to Schemes Share this page.

The proofs are usually very short because the results are very well algebdaic. Some time ago I had the idea of starting an EGA translation wiki project. Even worse than that, his construction of the structure sheaf basically rigs it so the stalks are the localizations at the primes, and doesn’t even try to explain what’s going on. In this uenp, the author turns to the theory of sheaves and their cohomology. Biased by my personal taste maybe, I think, Harder’s two-volume book with the third one not completed yet Lectures on Algebraic Geometry is wonderful.

But we don’t really have a good,deep text for advanced students yet. The book is gdometry complete and everything seems to be done “in the nicest way”. In particular, it’s the only undergraduate textbook that isn’t commutative algebra with a few pictures thrown in. The last few chapters contain some material which is very pretty but unusual for uwno basic text, kenju as reduction of algebraic curves.

I asked around and was told to read Hartshorne. On the other hand, Liu defines an affine variety to be the affine scheme associated to a finitely generated algebra over a field. Complex projective varieties” a lot, and also Griffiths’ “Introduction to algebraic curves”.


Then what might be the 2nd best? I realized that I could work through the sections and solve some of the problems, but I gained absolutely no intuition for reading Hartshorne. Post as a guest Name.

Additional Material for the Book

There are no discussion topics keji this book yet. Steve Dalton marked it as to-read Sep 12, Sign up using Email and Password. They are becoming more and more the standard reference on these topics, fitting nicely between abstract algebraic geometry and complex differential geometry. Homoionym added it Aug 18, Excuse me Anton, but you have very perverse sense of what constitutes a textbook.

I believe the issue of “which book is best” is extremely sensitive to the path along which one is moving into the subject. Another book was supposed to be written that built on the “Red book” including cohomology.

For a down to earth introduction, Milne’s notes are nice but they don’t go to the scheme level, they give the taste of it.

Hodge, Pedoe, Methods of Algebraic Geometry. Mukai’s Introduction to Invariants and Moduli surely deserves to be on this list. I think it is important to have links to the oenji version: Professor Vakil has informed people at his site that this year’s version of the notes will be posted in September at his blog.
