By Daniel Perrin (auth.)

Aimed essentially at graduate scholars and starting researchers, this publication presents an creation to algebraic geometry that's rather compatible for people with no earlier touch with the topic and assumes basically the traditional history of undergraduate algebra. it's built from a masters path given on the Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, and focusses on projective algebraic geometry over an algebraically closed base field.

The publication starts off with easily-formulated issues of non-trivial recommendations – for instance, Bézout’s theorem and the matter of rational curves – and makes use of those difficulties to introduce the elemental instruments of contemporary algebraic geometry: size; singularities; sheaves; types; and cohomology. The remedy makes use of as little commutative algebra as attainable through quoting with out facts (or proving in basic terms in detailed instances) theorems whose facts isn't really valuable in perform, the concern being to advance an figuring out of the phenomena instead of a mastery of the method. a number workouts is supplied for every subject mentioned, and a variety of difficulties and examination papers are amassed in an appendix to supply fabric for additional study.

The image W of ϕ is equal to the set V (J), where J = I + (Xn+1 F − 1) (cf. the proof of the Nullstellensatz). It is clear that ϕ is a homeomorphism from D(f ) onto W whose inverse is given by the projection p(x1 , . . , xn , xn+1 ) = (x1 , . . , xn ). 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.

Xn ). We denote by R the ring of polynomials k[X0 , . . , Xn ]. In small dimensions we will mostly use variables x, y, z, t and take the hyperplane t = 0 to be the hyperplane at inﬁnity. The ﬁrst diﬀerence with aﬃne sets is that the polynomials F in the ring k[X0 , . . , Xn ] no longer deﬁne functions on projective space since their value at a point x depends on the chosen system of homogeneous coordinates. For example, if F is homogeneous of degree d, then F (λx0 , λx1 , . . , λxn ) = λd F (x0 , x1 , .

5), and since A is reduced, the ideal I is radical. We set V = V (I). We have I(V ) = rac(I) = I by the Nullstellensatz, and hence A Γ (V ). 14. This theorem is the culmination of the programme of translation between geometry and algebra undertaken in this chapter. In the aﬃne setting this translation is more or less optimal, but in projective geometry we will have to use functions deﬁned only on open sets. In the following chapters we will need the notion of a rational function on V , which we will re-examine in detail in Chapters VIII and IX.
