About the book : This introductory textbook for a graduate course in pure mathematics provides a gateway into the two difficult fields of algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Algebraic geometry, supported fundamentally by commutative algebra, is a cornerstone of pure mathematics. Along the lines developed by Grothendieck, this book delves into the rich interplay between algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. With concise yet clear definitions and synopses a selection is made from the wealth of material in the disciplines including the Riemann-Roch theorem for arbitrary projective curves.
