The course will cover basic scheme theory, cohomology of quasi-coherent sheaves, Serre duality for proper schemes, Riemann-Roch for curves and surfaces, and applications of these techniques.

The desingularisation of a lemniscate obtained by looking at the proper transfrom of the lemniscate by blowing up the plane at the singularity. The red curve is the proper transform of the lemniscate. The z-axis is the exceptional divisor.

- Supplementary Notes These are notes on topics which we need in the course. The topics range from basic homological algebra to material from Atiyah-Macdonald and Matsumura.
- Mapping Cones and Flat Complexes
- Double Complexes
- More on B-Sheaves (A discussion on the uniqueness of the sheaf extending a B-sheaf)
- Some Important Complexes (Definition of some complexes which we will need in the course, like Cech, Koszul ...)
- The Hilbert Basis Theorem
- Various forms of the Nullstellensatz (The proofs do not use Noether normalisation, since the plan is to later give a geometric proof of Noether normalisation which uses the Nullstellensatz)
- Vector Bundles (There are very few proofs here. Just a broad sketch of ideas.)
- Divisors and Line Bundles (There are very few proofs here. Just a broad sketch of ideas so that we can use line bundles in the course)
- Direct images of quasi-coherent sheaves-I (The quasi-compact separated case)
- Direct images of quasi-coherent sheaves-II (The quasi-compact quasi-separated case)

The course covered the basic theory of abelian varieties via scheme theory. Topics included: Embedding of abelian varieties in projective space, Isogenies, Riemann-Roch for abelian varieties, the index of a line bundle, criterion for ampleness of a line bundle via its Hilbert polynomial, the construction of the dual abelian variety of a given abelian variety.

The picture of an abelian variety of dimension one over the complex numbers

The course covers basic techniques of solving ordinary
differential equations (separable, linear with constant coefficients,
variation of parameters, etc) and theorems on the existence, uniquenss
of solutions, their variation with initial conditions and parameters,
rectification of vector fields, one-parameter groups of diffeomorphisms
and the associated autonomous differential equations, the equation of
variations associated to differential equation whose vector field is
C^{1}, linearisation, and more.

Here is a picture of an integral curve of the
**logistic equation** y'=y(1-y)
when the phase space is compactified by a one point compactification of the
y-axis. The compactification is the red circle.The blue curve is an integral
curve whose initial phase is greater than **1**, the thin black
line on the right is the line y=∞, the red line the usual time
axis y=0, and (faint) the green line on top the line y=1. The blue dot is where
the inegral curve crosses y=∞. See Lectures 17 and
18 below.

The course revolved around Homework problems (see the outline), and I haven't scanned my lecture notes for the subject. The HW problems may be of some interest.

The course covered the basics of torsors, regarding them as algebraic geometric analogues of principal bundles. The first few lectures covered the very basics of principal bundles on manifolds. Later the course covered faithful flat descent, fpqc, fpff topologies, schemes as sheaves in the fpqc topology, torsors in this setting, reduction of structure groups in this general setting, as well as fibre bundles associated with a torsor and the action of the underlying group scheme on a scheme.

The notes are not organised as lectures. But nevertheless the notes cover a reasonable amount of what was taught (the last bits of the course dealt with sheaves on Stein manifolds, and I did not save my hand-written notes).

These are eight lectures I gave to the students in the Nurture programme of the National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM) in 1998. I am also linking to Homework problems they were asked to do in 1997 and in 1998. The lectures were for 20 talented second year undergraduates in various Indian institutes and universities who had been slected based on their performance as high school students in the Olympiad camp run by the NBHM. This particular cohort (which graudated from high school in 1996) visited the Harish-Chandra Research Institute (then called the Mehta Research Institute) the summers of 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000. I was asked to teach them analysis. I cannot find my lectures from 1997 or 1999. To keep in touch with them after the summer, they were assigned homework problems, solutions to which they mailed in throughout the year. The students were not necessarily specialising mathematics in the institutes they were affiliated to, and had to find time to work out problems outside the requirements of their official course of study. In any case, they were bright, and eight lectures were enough for them to pick up measure theory (well enough for them to do the homework problems).
