Wednesday April 27


  • Read up through page 11 completing the section on intersection numbers.  The intersection number is the dimension of a vector space. Why is that vector space finite dimensional?
  • Review projective plane curves, translating what Milne does back into the language of Proj(S.).
  • Learn the statement of Bezout’s theorem.
  • Read curves of degree two.  Is it really true that C can’t be singular?
  • Read up to the end of page 20.
