Algebraic topology is a uncomplicated a part of smooth arithmetic, and a few wisdom of this quarter is necessary for any complicated paintings when it comes to geometry, together with topology itself, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and Lie teams. This publication presents a close remedy of algebraic topology either for lecturers of the topic and for complicated graduate scholars in arithmetic both focusing on this quarter or carrying on with directly to different fields.
First textbook-level account of simple examples and strategies during this zone. appropriate for self-study via a reader who is aware a bit commutative algebra and algebraic geometry already. David Eisenbud is a widely known mathematician and present president of the yank Mathematical Society, in addition to a profitable Springer writer.
Grothendieck’s attractive conception of schemes permeates sleek algebraic geometry and underlies its purposes to quantity idea, physics, and utilized arithmetic. this straightforward account of that conception emphasizes and explains the common geometric suggestions at the back of the definitions. within the e-book, thoughts are illustrated with primary examples, and specific calculations express how the structures of scheme thought are conducted in perform.
This vintage textual content, written by means of one of many most desirable mathematicians of the twentieth century, is now to be had in a reasonable paperback version. Exposition is founded at the foundations of affine geometry, the geometry of quadratic varieties, and the constitution of the overall linear team. Context is broadened via the inclusion of projective and symplectic geometry and the constitution of symplectic and orthogonal teams.
