Commutative Algebra 13

Zariski Topology for Rings In this article, we generalize earlier results in algebraic geometry to apply to general rings. Recall that points on an affine variety V correspond to maximal ideals . For general rings, we have to switch to … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 4

More Concepts in Algebraic Geometry Recall that we have a bijection between radical ideals of and closed subsets of . The bijection reverses the inclusion so if and only if . Not too surprisingly, operations on ideals translate to operations … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 3

Algebraic Geometry Concepts We have decided to introduce, at this early point, some basics of algebraic geometry in order to motivate the later concepts. In summary, algebraic geometry studies solutions to polynomial equations over a field. First we consider a … Continue reading
