Algebraic Geometry 2: Topics in the geometry of schemes

Welcome to the homepage for Algebraic Geometry 2: Topics in the geometry of schemes (UPenn MATH 6250)

This course is designed to be a second semester course in algebraic geometry, assuming some background in varieties, commutative algebra and category theory. We will focus on the theory of schemes and their generalizations through the lens of moduli problems.

Some key sources for Algebraic geometry:

- Algebraic Geometry (R. Hartshorne)
- The Geometry of Schemes (D. Eisenbud and J. Harris)
- Basic Algebraic Geometry 1 (I. R. Shafarevich)
- Basic Algebraic Geometry 2 (I. R. Shafarevich)

And some further sources (to be added to later):

- Fundamental Algebraic Geometry (B. Fantechi, L. Gottsche, L. Illusie, S. Kleiman and N. Nitsure))

Mondays in DRL 4E19 and Fridays in DRL 2N36 from 1:45pm to 3:15pm
