Concept# Glossary of algebraic geometry

Summary

This is a glossary of algebraic geometry.
See also glossary of commutative algebra, glossary of classical algebraic geometry, and glossary of ring theory. For the number-theoretic applications, see glossary of arithmetic and Diophantine geometry.
For simplicity, a reference to the base scheme is often omitted; i.e., a scheme will be a scheme over some fixed base scheme S and a morphism an S-morphism.

MATH-658: Vanishing cycles and perverse sheaves

This course will explain the theory of vanishing cycles and perverse sheaves. We will see how the Hard Lefschetz theorem can be proved using perverse sheaves. If we have more time we will try to see t

MATH-657: Deformation Theory

We will study classical and modern deformation theory of schemes and coherent sheaves. Participants should have a solid background in scheme-theory, for example being familiar with the first 3 chapter

MATH-328: Algebraic geometry I - Curves

Algebraic geometry is the common language for many branches of modern research in mathematics. This course gives an introduction to this field by studying algebraic curves and their intersection theor

In algebraic geometry, a Schubert variety is a certain subvariety of a Grassmannian, usually with singular points. Like a Grassmannian, it is a kind of moduli space, whose points correspond to certain kinds of subspaces V, specified using linear algebra, inside a fixed vector subspace W. Here W may be a vector space over an arbitrary field, though most commonly over the complex numbers.

In mathematics, in particular in algebraic geometry, a complete algebraic variety is an algebraic variety X, such that for any variety Y the morphism is a closed map (i.e. maps closed sets onto closed sets). This can be seen as an analogue of compactness in algebraic geometry: a topological space X is compact if and only if the above projection map is closed with respect to topological products. The image of a complete variety is closed and is a complete variety. A closed subvariety of a complete variety is complete.

In algebraic geometry, the Iitaka dimension of a line bundle L on an algebraic variety X is the dimension of the image of the rational map to projective space determined by L. This is 1 less than the dimension of the section ring of L The Iitaka dimension of L is always less than or equal to the dimension of X. If L is not effective, then its Iitaka dimension is usually defined to be or simply said to be negative (some early references define it to be −1).

Variety Defined as the Closure of VCA

Explores the concept of variety defined as the closure of VCA and its applications in algebraic geometry.

Regularity and Geometric Meaning

Explores regularity in algebraic geometry and the geometric implications of the Jacobian criterion.

Quotient Criterion

Explores a criterion for computing quotients in algebraic geometry, emphasizing the importance of normality and g-invariant morphisms.

We introduce robust principal component analysis from a data matrix in which the entries of its columns have been corrupted by permutations, termed Unlabeled Principal Component Analysis (UPCA). Using algebraic geometry, we establish that UPCA is a well-de ...

We investigate generalizations along the lines of the Mordell-Lang conjecture of the author's p-adic formal Manin-Mumford results for n-dimensional p-divisible formal groups F. In particular, given a finitely generated subgroup (sic) of F(Q(p)) and a close ...

Let G be a finite subgroup of SU(4) such that its elements have age at most one. In the first part of this paper, we define K-theoretic stable pair invariants on a crepant resolution of the affine quotient C4/G, and conjecture a closed formula for their ge ...
