Topics in algebraic geometry
Lecture notes of an algebraic geometry graduate course. The topics covered are as follows. Cohomology: ext sheaves and groups, cohomology with support, local cohomology, local duality. Duality:
Topological and Shifting Theoretic Methods in Combinatorics and Algebra
This thesis consists of six papers related to combinatorics and commutative algebra.In Paper A, we use tools from topological combinatorics to describe the minimal free resolution of ideals with a ...
Hilbert schemes and Rees algebras
The topic of this thesis is algebraic geometry, which is the mathematical subject that connects polynomial equations with geometric objects. Modern algebraic geometry has extended this framework by
Two results in Differential Algebra, Kolchin’s irreducibility theorem, and a result on descent of projective varieties (due to Buium) are proved using methods of “modern” or “Grothendieck style”
Some Applications of Algebraic Cycles to Affine Algebraic Geometry
In this series of talks, I will discuss some applications of the theory of algebraic cycles to affine algebraic geometry (i.e., to commutative algebra).
Some algebraic notions related to analysis on metric spaces
There are versions of "calculus" in many settings, with various mixtures of algebra and analysis. In these informal notes we consider a few examples that suggest a lot of interesting questions.

Projective geometry and homological algebra
We provide an introduction to many of the homological commands in Macaulay 2 (modules, free resolutions, Ext and Tor. ..) by means of examples showing how to use homological tools to study projective
Derived Completions in Stable Homotopy theory
Chordal and Complete Structures in Combinatorics and Commutative Algebra
This thesis is divided into two parts. The first part is concerned with the commutative algebra of certain combinatorial structures arising from uniform hypergraphs. The main focus lies on two part

Methods of Homological Algebra
Considering homological algebra, this text is based on the systematic use of the language and ideas of derived categories and derived functors. Relations with standard cohomology theory are

Principles of Algebraic Geometry
A comprehensive, self-contained treatment presenting general results of the theory. Establishes a geometric intuition and a working facility with specific geometric practices. Emphasizes applications
On the Geometry of a Theorem of Riemann
Let C be a smooth complete algebraic curve. Let I: C-+J be an universal abelian integral of C into its Jacobian J. Furthermore, let I(i): C(i) J be the mapping sending a point c1 + *-+ ci in the ith
On the Periods of Certain Rational Integrals: II
In this section we want to re-prove the results of ?? 4 and 8 using sheaf cohomology. One reason for doing this is to clarify the discussion in those paragraphs and, in particular, to show how
On the Existence of Special Divisors
Let X be a complete nonsingular curve of genus g defined over an algebraically closed field Ic of any characteristic, let J be the jacobian variety. Denote by G;r the set of points of J which are
