I actually love Liu’s approach. He gives quite a thorough treatment of the theory of varieties over an algebraic closed field.

There are very few books like this and they should be a must to start learning the subject. A super,2 year long graduate course using totally free materials could begin with Fulton and then move on to Vakil’s notes. I’ve found this combined table of contents to be useful in this quest.

But Algebraic Geometry nowadays has grown into such a deep and ample field of study that a graduate student has to focus heavily on one or two topics keno at the same time must be able to use the fundamental results of other close subfields.

See uneo librarian page for additional eBook ordering options. Then chapter two develops first some properties of this set of prime ideals, or prime spectrum of a ring, making it into a topological space with the Zariski topology Hartshorne – “Deformation Theory”.

Varieties in Projective Space. I think Algebraic Geometry is too broad a subject to choose only one book. This is tongue-in-cheek since I recall posting a similar “reference” here as well, as a comment to another question. Every time I open my copy, I think “God, this makes algebraic geometry look unappetizing”. A sheaf is a way of keeping track of local information defined on a topological space, such as the local holomorphic functions on a complex manifold or the local sections of a vector bundle.


The Berkeley math dept requires its grad students to pass a language exam which consists of translating a page of math in French, German, or Russian into English. Another very nice book is Miranda’s Algebraic Curves which manages to get a long way Riemann-Roch etc without doing sheaves and line bundles until the end.

I liked Mumford’s “Algebraic geometry I: Excuse me Anton, but you have very perverse sense of what constitutes a textbook.

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

I have two books from algebraic geometry, namely “Diophantine Geometry” from Hindry and Silverman and “Algebraic geometry and arithmetic curves” from Qing Liu.

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.

For an abstract algebraic approach, a freely available online course is available by the nicely done new long notes by R.

To study schemes, it is useful to study the sheaves defined on them, especially the coherent and quasicoherent sheaves.

This new title is wonderful: Publication Month and Year: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Shafaravich’s Basic AG I is excellent in this regard. But we don’t really have a good,deep text for advanced students yet. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. I should also emphasize that I’m not saying this is the only purpose of the book: Some time ago I had the idea of starting an EGA translation wiki project.

Out of curiosity, can you elaborate on what you like about this book? You certainly don’t need to already know algebraic geometry to read it. This book isn’t easy to read and you have to work out a lot, but the rewards are great. I’d expect to see that in huge letters near the definition of scheme.


Jun 3 ’16 at Lan rated it it was amazing Nov 08, Online Price 3 Label: Well, to be fair, this is only the first in a series of three books on the subject by the same author.

Just the perfect complement to Hartshorne’s main slgebraic, since it did not deal with these matters, geimetry other books approach the subject from a different point of view e. I’m just warning that if you read it all the way through, you still won’t know the ‘basics’ of algebraic geometry.

Once sheaf theory has been well understood, the next step is to see that an affine scheme can be defined in terms of a sheaf over the prime spectrum of a ring. The second half then jumps into a categorical introduction to schemes, bits of cohomology and even glimpses of intersection theory.

Algebraic Geometry 1: From Algebraic Varieties to Schemes

Liu wrote a nice book, which is a bit more oriented to arithmetic geometry. I’ve found it quite rewarding lenji to familiarize myself with the contents of EGA. Jaska 5 If you accept this from the start, then I would recommend learning the “classic” approach through varieties in detail before studying schemes. Positivity for Vector Bundles and Multiplier Ideals.

Oh, I’m a big fan of the book. Refresh and try again.
