Consider early 20 century point set topology: It is a basic foundational technique, but I don’t expect most interesting new work in algebraic geometry to occur in the foundations. Some will read them later grothenxieck “pleasure”, like reading the classics. I also read some of Weil’s foundations, as well as books of Lang and some of Zariski’s papers, which helped give an appreciation of other perspectives.

When I need to know where something is, I just ask someone. Matt, I fully agree!

### aic geometry – The importance of EGA and SGA for “students of today” – MathOverflow

If you try to study and then learn Algebraic geometry from some books such as Hartshorne’s book and etc, these books would be so hard and unsatisfactory for you, especially if you want to be so exact with full details in learning algebraic geometry.

Thus, ega the impetus of various mathematicians from several countries, a project was formed of re-publishing SGA in a more widely available electronic format and using LaTeX for typesetting; also, various notes are to be added to correct for minor mistakes or obscurities. I do hear that there exist Russian and Chinese translations.

I just would like to draw your attention to what Luc Illusie, illustrious student of Grothendieck, said to Spencer Bloch in a conversation recently published in the Notices of the AMS: But note that Bloch is also an illustrious algebraic geometer, so it is worth noting his brothendieck as well! However, I have a hard time with this point too: On the other hand, when you are trying to prove your theorems, you might well find techincal tools in them which are very helpful, so it is useful to have some sense of what is in them and what sort of tools they provide.

Reading the first two books grothendieeck EGA with some guidance from Brian Conrad on what to skip was quite an experience I had assumed that it would be like Hartshorne, only more so, grthendieck huge heavy machinery constantly being dropped on my head. But one thing to remember is that many very clever people have pored over the details of EGA and SGA for many years now, and it so it is going to be hard for anyone to find interesting new results that can be obtained just by applying the ideas grothedieck these sources alone as important as those ideas are.

In fact, we can learn most part of these materials from his lecture course and even more categorical since he is framework maker for NCAG which is based on categoryIt is really a happy experience However, he said it was better to listen not to read.

They understand that for specific questions they have to go to this place, the only place where they can find a satisfactory answer. It’s not clear to me that one gains more essential background by reading EGA.

It is easy to be mesmerized.

Some book about curves my preference is ACGH, but there are many options some book about surfaces e. This page was last edited on 20 Juneat Expanding on this it seems a lot of people seems it’s just flame: Grothendieck’s metaphor of opening a walnut by soaking it in water is remarkably apt.

The reputation for difficulty is, I think, unfounded. And even writing “flavor” in the singular is silly: You can find a handful of abortive attempts at translating EGA around the internet. I grotnendieck EGAs and SGAs are not useful for “students of today” but they are indispensable for “researchers of today”, and “tomorrow”.

Silverman Fulton’s intersection theory. Dear Fitzcarraldo, The transcript of this conversation is grothendeick. I read parts of 4. One thing that always drove me crazy about EGA was the excessive back referencing.

The published part of EGA is in Publ. When you are starting to learn algebraic geometry you have to cover a lot of material. Perhaps students should be encouraged to dip into EGA a little, to realize that it isn’t scary, just long, so when they really need it, they won’t be fearful.
