We will resume our reading course on Wednesday, July 18. We will meet at 10 am. We are going to talk about the plan of the course and some other organizational matters. So, if you want to participate in the course, please try to be present.

Student reading group on algebraic geometry

Ehsan Shahosseini together with some other students are organizing a reading group on algebraic geometry. They are going to read the book “Algebraic Geometry I, Schemes” by U. Görtz and T. Wedhorn.


I will be away for about two months. We will resume our reading course once I’m back. In the meanwhile, some of the students in the class will try to learn some algebraic geometry.

Finished book 2

Today we finished the second book from our reading material, i.e., Number Theory 2: Introduction to Class Field Theory, by K. Kato, N. Kurokawa and T. Saito.
