Math 764 -- Algebraic Geometry II
This course is the continuation of Math 763. The goal is to put to extend the framework of algebraic geometry from varieties (studied in Math 763) to schemes. This requires using the language of sheaves (and, particularly, sheaves of rings) on topological spaces.
We will start with the Riemann-Roch Theorem and the related topics (divisors, projective embeddings). Then we will go over basic properties of sheaves, and define schemes and morphisms of schemes.

In the beginning of the course, we will go over basic properties of sheaves. We will then define schemes and morphisms of schemes, and study various classes of morphisms. Time permitting, I hope to discuss more interesting topics, such as (quasi)coherent sheaves on schemes and moduli spaces.
