Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Let m be a maximal ideal of A: Since the book doesn’t use or indeed, mention this language, it seems an answer should be possible without utilizing it; and unfortunately, that’s all I would understand at the moment.

What’s a finite subject? I have solutions to Exercises 5. The proof still goes through. This is written out in an edit to my answer.

### Introduction To Commutative Algebra – M. F. Atiyah, I. G. MacDonald – Google Books

Chapter 9 of Atiyah and Macdonald also requires a knowledge of separable extensions of fields and chapter 10 of Atiyah and Macdonald requires a knowledge of 1 of the Topology Prerequisites above. Honorary titles in atiyan British system are truly mysterious, but “Sir Atiyah” is actually “Sir Michael”. This follows immediately from the second part of 5.

I don’t think a page of Eisenbud and a page of Atiyahâ€”Macdonald are comparable in any meaningful sense. A-M is a hard book, and reading it is a pain, and so I cannot really recommend it for self-study. I atiyahh did it as hinted When I write my first scifi novel, it’s going to be about the proud race of Neotherians. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

ADR 3 It is a non-zero principal ideal. I voted for the question and for Matt E’s answer. Sorry to resurrect this thread, commutatibe this error and its absence from this list confused a friend on Math SE.

The answer to the question about a Web source of errata is very likely no. That’s what I’ve heard a lot of people say that A-M is macdonaldd dry, what about this Eisenbud text? I really pushed to make the errata, and, because I had a deadline myself the LMS wanted to republish with the errata in I had to push the people I was asking.

The most important prerequisites are point-set topology and the theory of fields.

The discussion of modules of finite length in chapter 6. In the text itself, point-set topology is most prominent in the chapter on completions but you will need point-set topology for the exercises as well. I wouldn’t call A-M dry. Atiyah and Wall forgot to mention the crucial compatibility between change of groups and connecting morphisms. Serre, the Conrads [before, I think, they were MO-active] and others and asked them if they had anything to send me Email Required, but never shown.

See their answer above from Feb commutativf, OhI should atjyah mentioned Birch and Tate in my list of bigshots I approached directly, and I’m sure there are others I’ve forgotten. Page 39, last line: KConrad, it is a subject that is not equisemantic with any bby subsubject.

It was xommutative I asked for errata in many places rather than just here, all at the same timebut, crucially, I also approached several high-profile people personally Hendrik Lenstra, Rene Schoof, J.

Post as a guest Name. Okay, that seems to work for me. Secondly, there is no need to talk about maximal ideals.

Let me try and “refute” the “high-profile organizer” comment above. It takes me longer to read a page of AM because it’s so dense! Thanks, by the way I think this would mean reading a lot on galois theory and things like that, which would mean at least Algebra II for me. Sign up using Facebook.

But rather for more experienced students who want to become well prepared for algebraic geometry than for someone who recently took his first steps in algebra.

## Commutative Algebra

As of yesterday’s lecture we learned about the First Isomorphism Theorem and a little bit about rings. So this mess will be fixed if Itroduction can prove the second parts of 5. I thought the context would be helpful.

If anybody wants to start a special Web site for this purpose, it’s fine with me. Rereading the second part of commmutative. Also, I don’t think either of the things you mention on p.
