Algebraic Geometry II

Prof. Dr. Torsten Wedhorn, Prof. Dr. Timo Richarz

Time and Place

Wednesdays, 09:50-11:30 in t.b.a.
Thursday, 11:40-13:20 in t.b.a.
Starting: 16.10.2019


This course is the continuation of Algebraic Geometry I. We discuss properties of morphisms of schemes (proper, finite, affine, flat, smooth, étale),  derived categories and cohomology of quasi-coherent sheaves, and some applications if time permits.  Prerequisites are the language of schemes and quasi-coherent sheaves as covered last term.
