The course will follow the book Introduction to commutative algebra by M. F. Atiyah and I. G. Macdonald.
The content of the course is mainly identical to the content of the book. However the course skips Chapter 4 and the first half of Chapter 5 (that is, Chapter 5 is reduced to the subjects "valuation rings" and "Hilbert's Nullstellensatz").
|Aug 25 – Aug 31|| Chapter 1, Exercises 1., 2. i) and ii), 5. i) iii), iv), and v), 10), 15)
|Sep 01 – Sep 07|| Prove the Nakayama Lemma: Let M be a finitely generated A-module, J the Jacobson radical of A. Assume that JM=M. Then M=0.
Chapter 2, Exercises 1., 3. + find counterexamples to the statement if A is not local or M is not finitely generated, 9, 13.
|Sep 10 – Sep 21|| Chapter 3, Exercises 5, 12
|Sep 22 – Sep 28|| Consider the ring A = k[x,y]/(xy), where k is an algebraically closed field.
1. Determine the maximal ideals of A. Draw a picture.
2. Determine the local rings Am for all maximal ideals m of A.
|Sep 29 – Oct 05||Chapter 6, Exercises 1. and 4.|
|Oct 06 – Oct 12|| Chapter 7, Exercises 8., 11., and 14.
Chapter 8, Exercise 3.
|Nov 10 – Nov 16||Determine (independently) d(A), delta(A), and dim A for the local rings A = k[[x]] and A = k[[x,y]]/(xy).|
|Nov 17 – Nov 23||Determine dim Z and dim k[x1, …, xd]. You may assume k to be algebraically closed.|
