7 credits during the 3nd year of 8760 Mathematics (L-35) GENOVA

## OVERVIEW

Language: Italian

## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties, with the study of remarkable examples and with particular regard to the case of the curves, by dealing with classical methods also some advanced topics. The knowledge provided is useful both for the continuation of studies in the algebraic-geometric field and for an approach to some problems in the field of application.
