By Barbara Fantechi, Nitin Nitsure

Alexander Grothendieck's innovations became out to be astoundingly strong and effective, actually revolutionizing algebraic geometry. He sketched his new theories in talks given on the Séminaire Bourbaki among 1957 and 1962. He then amassed those lectures in a sequence of articles in Fondements de los angeles géométrie algébrique (commonly often called FGA). a lot of FGA is now universal wisdom. despite the fact that, a few of it really is much less popular, and just a couple of geometers are conversant in its complete scope. The aim of the present publication, which resulted from the 2003 complex university in simple Algebraic Geometry (Trieste, Italy), is to fill within the gaps in Grothendieck's very condensed define of his theories. The 4 major topics mentioned within the ebook are descent idea, Hilbert and Quot schemes, the formal life theorem, and the Picard scheme. The authors current whole proofs of the most effects, utilizing more recent principles to advertise figuring out each time helpful, and drawing connections to later advancements. With the most prerequisite being an intensive acquaintance with simple scheme idea, this ebook is a useful source for someone operating in algebraic geometry.
