This course is an introduction to Algebraic Geometry (algebraic varieties and schemes).

Prerequisites a course in Commutative Algebra is required, we will assume the main results covered in this lecture summary. All material of Sections 1 and 2 and most of the material of Section 8 are a must, later in the course also Section 5.

For exercises and literature recommendations, visit last year's Commutative Algebra course website.
