Welcome to the Commutative Algebra reading course, which is part of the Decoding Dimensions program on Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory. In this course, we will cover the fundamentals of Commutative Algebra, which are essential for Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory.

The class is scheduled for Thursday, from 4:00 pm to 5:45 pm (Tehran time).

I will be sharing the weekly reading material and exercises on the News page. All class-related communication and updates will also be posted there. So, please stay connected…

Our main reference for this course will be J. Milne‘s lecture notes [CA] A Primer on Commutative Algebra.
