Algebraic Geometry: An Introduction, 1st Edition by Daniel Perrin (auth.)

By Daniel Perrin (auth.)

Aimed basically at graduate scholars and starting researchers, this publication offers an creation to algebraic geometry that's rather appropriate for people with no earlier touch with the topic and assumes in basic terms the normal history of undergraduate algebra. it really is 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 begins with easily-formulated issues of non-trivial strategies – 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; kinds; and cohomology. The remedy makes use of as little commutative algebra as attainable by means of quoting with out evidence (or proving purely in distinctive situations) theorems whose facts isn't really helpful in perform, the concern being to enhance an figuring out of the phenomena instead of a mastery of the process. quite a number workouts is supplied for every subject mentioned, and a range of difficulties and examination papers are amassed in an appendix to supply fabric for extra study.

A) If X is an algebraic variety and U is an open set of X, then U equipped with the sheaf OX |U is an algebraic variety which is called an open subvariety of X. In particular, any open subset of an affine algebraic variety is an algebraic variety (called a quasi-affine variety); but be careful : it is not necessarily affine (for example, k 2 − {(0, 0)} is not affine cf. 4). b) Closed subvarieties. Let X be an algebraic variety and let Y be a closed set in X. Our aim is to define a sheaf OY on Y . , to define the sections over an open set V on Y by {f : V → k | ∃ U ⊂ X, open, such that U ∩ Y = V and ∃ g ∈ OX (U ) such that g|V = f }.

D) ¶ Prove that on the other hand C = V (Z 2 − Y T, F ), where F is a homogeneous polynomial to be determined. We say that C is a set-theoretic complete intersection, which means that C can be defined by two equations, or, alternatively, that C is the intersection of two surfaces. NB: these surfaces are tangent to each other and C should be thought of as being of multiplicity 2 in this intersection. , an exact sequence u v 0 −→ R(−3)2 −−→ R(−2)3 −−→ I(C) −→ 0, where R is the ring k[X, Y, Z, T ] and R(−i) is the graded R-module which is simply R with a shifted grading: R(−i)n = Rn−i .

There are mutually inverse decreasing bijections W → IV (W ) and I → V (I) between affine algebraic subsets contained in V and radical ideals of Γ (V ). Moreover, we have the following equivalences: a) W irreducible ⇔ IV (W ) prime ⇔ Γ (W ) integral, b) W is a point ⇔ IV (W ) maximal ⇔ Γ (W ) = k, c) W is an irreducible component of V ⇔ IV (W ) is a minimal prime ideal of Γ (V ). Proof. The existence of these bijections is obvious, as is a) (it is enough to note that I is a radical ideal of Γ (V ) if and only if r−1 (I) is a radical ideal of k[X1 , .
