## Scope

We follow the classical approach to algebraic geometry. Our main goal is to prove Bézout's Theorem. Optional goals are to introduce sheaf cohomology and to prove the Riemann-Roch Theorems.

Requirements are basic knowledge of (commutative) ring theory and topology.

## Book

The course will follow the book *Algebraic Geometry - An Introduction* by **Daniel Perrin**. This book is originally written in French. However, I will be using the English translation.

Individual chapters of the book can be downloaded from SpringerLink via the NTNU library (that is, you have to be on campus or surf via campus).

## Exercises

Exercises will be posted every other week (after the respective Tuesday lecture). The exercise sheet may be found here. Solutions will be discussed briefly at the beginning of the Monday lectures if desired.
