Commutative Algebra 63
Serre’s Criterion for Normality Throughout this article, fix an algebraically closed field k. In this section, A denotes a noetherian domain. We will describe Serre’s criterion, which is a necessary and sufficient condtion for A to be normal. In the … Continue reading
Commutative Algebra 62
Irreducible Subsets of Projective Space Throughout this article, k is an algebraically closed field. We wish to consider irreducible closed subsets of . For that we need the following preliminary result. Lemma 1. Let be a graded ring; a proper homogeneous … Continue reading
Commutative Algebra 61
In this article, we will consider algebraic geometry in the projective space. Throughout this article, k denotes an algebraically closed field. Projective Space Definition. Let . On the set , we consider the equivalence relation: The projective nspace is the set … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 59
Prime Composition Series Throughout this article, A is a noetherian ring and all Amodules are finitely generated. Recall (proposition 1 here) that if M is a noetherian and artinian module, we can find a sequence of submodules whose consecutive factors … Continue reading
Commutative Algebra 58
We have already seen two forms of unique factorization. In a UFD, every nonzero element is a unique product of irreducible (also prime) elements. In a Dedekind domain, every nonzero ideal is a unique product of maximal ideals. Here, we … Continue reading
