Not Running in 2015/16
Status for Mathematics students: MA6xx courses are not approved by the University and so you cannot register to take them for credit in the usual way
Commitment: There will be a weekly seminar on a self-help basis starting in Term 1 organised by Miles Reid and Diane Maclagan, details will be circulated by e-mail, together with Algebraic Geometry Seminar announcements. Anyone wishing to be included on the mailing list should contact Miles Reid and Diane Maclagan.
The course consists of topics in Algebraic Geometry, including foundational questions, the construction of varieties in terms of commutative algebra, the classification of varieties, orbifolds and their resolutions and other matters.
