In lieu of a language exam, have the students translate a few pages of EGA. I have had difficulties to prove the equivalence of many definitions.

I haven’t seen it yet,but I’ve heard a lot of feometry things about it from some friends at Oxford,where apparently it’s quite popular. Discussing this with other people, I found that it was a common occurrence for students to read Hartshorne and afterwards have no idea how to do algebraic geometry.

Further properties of schemes will be discussed in the second volume. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site the association bonus does not count. Besides, Mumford himself developed the subject. Algebraic geometry is built upon two fundamental notions: Could you explain in algebbraic ways EGA does not constitute a textbook?


I believe the issue of “which book is best” is extremely sensitive to the path along which one is moving into the subject. The book is very complete and everything seems to be done “in the nicest way”. Artie, that’s exactly what I like about it.

If you can torlerate the English written by a German, perhaps some parts of Harder’s are more appealing than those of Shafarevich and Hartshorne! Lan rated it it was amazing Nov 08, I hope Vakil keeps revising them for one day publication.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I totally, absolutely agree about Shafarevitch being the best textbook.

Additional Material for the Book

If you accept this from the start, then I would recommend learning the “classic” approach through varieties in detail before studying schemes. By far the best for a complex-geometry-oriented mind. Then chapter two develops first some properties of this set of prime ideals, or prime spectrum of a ring, making gsometry into a topological space with the Zariski topology Miranda looks very good,although I haven’t read it carefully yet.

He gives quite a thorough treatment of the theory of varieties over an algebraic closed field. In addition, you can actually ask questions a feature thoroughly missed in e. I have found Kenji Ueno’s book Algebraic Geometry 1: Beauville – “Complex Algebraic Surfaces”. It’s certainly very systematic with lots of exercises and a wonderful reference book, but it’s only useful to people who somehow got the motivation to study abstract algebraic geometry, not as the first book.


Many algebraic geometry students are able to say with confidence “that’s one of the exercises in Hartshorne, chapter II, section 4. Not to mention Qing Liu’s book The background needed is minimum compared to other titles.

Alison I second your vote,Alison. Just amazing notes; short but very complete, dealing even with schemes and cohomology and proving Riemann-Roch and even hinting Hirzebruch-R-R. The PDF file may be freely downloaded: I had a certain phobia with algebraic geometry for a long time, and the algebrac introduction chapter in his notes is the only thing which made me realize that there was nothing to be scared of.

Beautifully written,comprehensive and not too abstract. Best Algebraic Geometry text book? Professor Vakil has informed people at his site that this year’s version of the notes will be posted in September at his blog.
