An obtainable textual content introducing algebraic geometries and algebraic teams at complicated undergraduate and early graduate point, this publication develops the language of algebraic geometry from scratch and makes use of it to establish the speculation of affine algebraic teams from first principles.

Building at the history fabric from algebraic geometry and algebraic teams, the textual content presents an creation to extra complex and specialized fabric. An instance is the illustration thought of finite teams of Lie type.

The textual content covers the conjugacy of Borel subgroups and maximal tori, the idea of algebraic teams with a BN-pair, an intensive remedy of Frobenius maps on affine forms and algebraic teams, zeta capabilities and Lefschetz numbers for forms over finite fields. specialists within the box will get pleasure from a few of the new methods to classical results.

The textual content makes use of algebraic teams because the major examples, together with labored out examples, instructive routines, in addition to bibliographical and historic feedback.
