Prerequisites
Good knowledge of scheme theory (proficient in Hartshorne Ch. II, preferably also Ch. III, at least knowledge of flat and étale morphisms, see [O, Ch. 1]). Grothendieck topologies (see [O, Ch. 2.1—2.2] and [V1]).Examiner
David RydhCourse start
First meeting on Friday, Feb 24, 10:15-12:00, KTH 3418.Time and place
After that, mostly Wednesdays, 15:15–17:00 (preliminary). Alternating between KTH 3721 or SU ???, depending on where the algebra seminar is.Examination
Lectures will mainly be given by participants. All participants should study the material, including exercises, carefully before each meeting. The lecturer should summarize main definitions, theorems, proofs, examples and exercises but we will also try to have some more informal discussions in class.Literature
