Universal algebraic geometry

Universal algebraic geometry

In Universal algebraic geometry, algebraic geometry is generalized from the geometry of rings to geometry of arbitrary varieties of algebras, so that every "variety of algebras" has its own algebraic geometry. Note that the two terms algebraic variety and "variety of algebras" should not be confused.
