Algebraic Geometry I

In the Wintersemester 09/10 I organize problem sessions (Übung) for the course Algebraic Geometry I.

Lectures are given by Remke Kloosterman on

  • Mondays, 11:15-12:45 in room 3.006 (RUD25) and

  • Wednesdays, 9:15-10:45 in room 0.311 (RUD26).

Problem sessions are on

  • Mondays, 13:15-14:45 in room 3.007 (RUD25).

This page will be gradually updated with lists of exercises and news about the course.


You can download the last problem sheet here. Hand in solutions not later than February 8.

Remember that for the "Leistungsnachweis" it is enough to obtain 50% of the points in the homework.
