Commutative algebra and algebraic geometry

Algebraic geometry is the study of solutions to systems of polynomial equations. Commutative algebra is the underlying machinery. The course will give an introduction to these areas.

The course covers rings, ideals, prime ideals, nilpotents, zero-divisors, modules, Noetherian rings, Hilbert's basis theorem, finite extensions and Noetherian normalization, varieties, Nullstellensatz, prime ideal spectra, localization, primary decomposition.

This course is given jointly by Stockholm University and KTH, and part of the course is given at KTH. More information can be found on the course web before the start of the semester, see link below.
