**Time and Place**

Mondays, 11:40-13:20 in S1|03-209 (New Room!)

Wednesdays, 13:30-15:10 in S1|03-110

Starting: 15.04.2019

**Contents**

The course is an introduction to basic scheme theory (Schemes, Morphisms, Dimension, Singularities) which lies at the foundation of most areas in modern algebraic geometry and number theory. Some familiarity with commutative algebra is assumed, e.g., as covered in Chapter 1-3 of Introduction to commutative algebra, by M. Atiyah and I. MacDonald. Further tools from commutative algebra are stated (usually without proof) during the lectures whenever we need them. It is recommended to cross read the book of Atiyah-MacDonald.

**Exercise session**

Dr. Ulrik Buchholtz

Mondays, 13:30-15:10 in S1|02-34

Starting: 29.04.2019 (see below)

There are weekly exercise sessions accompanying the lecture. In order to participate in the final exam it is necessary to attend the exercise session. Please hand in the solutions to the exercises on Wednesdays during the lecture.

On Monday, 22.04 are Easter holidays, so there is no session on this day. The first exercise session takes place on Wednesday, 24.04 at 11:40-13:20 in Room S3|06-146, and is a short repetitorium recollecting some facts from commutative algebra.

**Exam**

This is an oral exam and takes place in the week from 29.07-02.08 (end of July/beginning of August). The second exam takes place in the beginning of October. Details follow.
