The Macdonald book is really good. Obviously I’m taking liberties with the question, as I wouldn’t advertise Huybrechts’ book as an algebraic geometry text in the strict sense. Print Price 1 Label: I have found Kenji Ueno’s book Algebraic Geometry 1: I know it’s a scary pages of French, but It’s really easy French.

Amazingly well written and unique on the topic, summarizing and bringing together lots of information, results, and many many examples. I believe the issue of “which book is best” is extremely sensitive to the path along which one is moving into the subject. I assure you it is not pages of fluff. The first volume can serve almost as an introduction to complex geometry and the second to its topology.

It is a classic and although the flavor is clearly of typed concise notes, it is by far the shortest but thorough book on curves, which serves as a very nice introduction to the whole subject. Whlile many of the above books are excellent, it’s a surprise that these books aren’t the standard. Many algebraic geometry students are able to say with confidence “that’s one of the exercises in Hartshorne, chapter II, section 4.

Algebraic Geometry by Kenji Ueno

As for motivation for schemes, this is a good read after you acquired some knowledge of schemes. The Ueho math dept requires its grad students to pass a language exam which consists of translating a page of math geomettry French, German, geoemtry Russian into English. I recently completed a book on algebraic geometry.


I hope Vakil keeps revising them for one day publication. Jun 3 ’16 at Debarre – “Higher Dimensional Algebraic Geometry”. Yes, it might be good idea to include volume 2 in the answer as well, the book is highly readable.

Shafarevich also has a Volume 2, on schemes and advanced topics. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

It can be a book, preprint, online lecture note, webpage, etc. This is the first of three volumes on algebraic geometry. He never mentions that the category of affine schemes is dual to the category of rings, as far as I can see. Refresh and try again. This book is not yet featured on Algebrzic. The background needed is minimum compared to other titles.

I have two books from algebraic gwometry, namely “Diophantine Geometry” from Ggeometry and Silverman and “Algebraic geometry and arithmetic curves” from Qing Liu. Found in the very beautifull 2nd collection – when I got it from the library I could not stop reading in it, which happens to me rarely with such collections, despite the associated saga.

These are the notes for a basic course in schemes and cohomology of sheaves. Dual Price 2 Label: It clearly is a less advanced book, but I’ve heard it makes great preparation for understanding more modern algebraic geometry menji.

I actually love Liu’s approach. How could you miss that out? They are becoming more and more the standard reference on these topics, fitting nicely between abstract algebraic geometry and complex differential geometry.

At a lower level then Hartshorne is the algebraif “Algebraic Curves” by Fulton. I’ve found it quite rewarding to to familiarize myself with the contents of EGA. He puts the condition “F emptyset is trivial” into the definition of presheaf, when really it belongs in the definition of sheaf.

This isn’t really an algebraic geometry textbook. To ask other readers questions about Algebraic Geometryplease sign up. EGA isn’t any more textbook of algevraic geometry than Bourbaki is a textbook of mathematics.


They may be the most complete on foundations geometfy varieties up to introducing schemes and complex geometry, so they are very useful before more abstract studies. Otherwise, I agree with the others. Every time I open my copy, I think “God, this makes algebraic geometry look unappetizing”.

I had a certain phobia with algebraic geometry for a long time, and the the introduction chapter in his notes is the only thing which made me realize that there was nothing to be scared of. Is your objection that there aren’t any exercises? For a down to earth introduction, Milne’s notes are nice but they don’t go to the scheme level, they give the taste of it.

The red book by Mumford is nice, better than Hartshorne in my opinion which is nice as well. Nitin CR added it Nov 11, I agree,both of Reid’s texts are fantastic introductions. Some time ago I had the idea of starting an EGA translation wiki project. The book is very complete and everything seems to be done “in the nicest way”.

Online Price 1 Label: Another very nice book is Miranda’s Algebraic Curves which manages to get a alggebraic way Riemann-Roch etc without doing sheaves and line bundles until the end.
