|Topology and Differential Geometry can be useful, since most of the concepts in the course are algebraic versions of concepts coming from topology and differential geometry. However, the course aims at self-consistence in presenting the topics.|
|As the name suggests, algebraic geometry studies the geometric properties of the set of solutions of systems of polynomial equations. After the course, the student will be familiar with the fundamental concepts of algebraic varieties, which are the geometric manifestations of these solutions. The main goals are (1) working knowledge of basic elements of affine and projective geometry (2) familiarity with explicit examples, which are fundamental for the whole theory, including plane curves, Grassmannian, Veronese and Segre varieties, etc.|
