Algebraic Geometry (book)

Algebraic Geometry (book)

"Algebraic Geometry" is an influential algebraic geometry textbook written by Robin Hartshorne and published by Springer-Verlag in 1977. It was the first extended treatment of scheme theory written as a text intended to be accessible to graduate students.

The first chapter, titled "Varieties", deals with the classical algebraic geometry of varieties over algebraically closed field. This chapter frequently uses many classical results in commutative algebra, including Hilbert's Nullstellensatz, with the books by Atiyah-Macdonald, Matsumura, and Zariski-Samuel as usual references. The second and the third chapters, "Schemes" and "Cohomology", form a technical heart of the book. The last two chapters, "Curves" and "Surfaces", respectively explore the geometry of 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional objects, using the tools developed in the Chapters 2 and 3.
