Prerequisites | Math 256A |

Required Text | Hartshorne, Algebraic Geometry,
Springer |

Syllabus | The course will pick up where 256A left off and finish Chapter II though Section 8. After that, we will proceed on to do much of Chapter III (Cohomology). |

Grading | Grades will be based on homework assignments, and possibly in-class quizzes. There will be no final exam, but the last problem set will be due about a week after the last day of classes. |

Homework | Weekly or biweekly, assigned in class, generally due on Mondays |

Comments | I tend to follow the book fairly closely, but try to give interesting exercises and examples. |

No. | Date | Title | Download | |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | January 17 | Some local algebra for II 8.17 | dvi | |

2 | March 21 | Proof of II 8.17 – revised 4/2 (small changes) | dvi |

In these assignments, you may use earlier exercises from the book without proving them. (For problems not from the book, use common sense or ask me.)

Solutions for these assignments (those that have been graded, that is) are available on bCourses.
