Here is the syllabus of our reading course.

The prerequisites are basic knowledge of algebraic geometry, say chapters 2 and 3 of R. Hartshorne’s Algebraic Geometry book, and basic knowledge of group schemes, say W. Waterhouse’s Affine Group Schemes book (that we just finished in this class).

Because of the Covid-19 situation, our class will be held online. If you would like to actively participate in the class, please send me an email and I will add you to our online meeting group. The class takes place on Monday at 4 pm.
