Besides the lecture notes presented above the following text books are recommended:

*C.H.Clemens*, A scrapbook of complex curve theory, Plenum Press, 1980*J.Harris*, Algebraic geometry. A first Course, Springer, 1998*M.Reid*, Undergraduate algebraic geometry, CUP, 1988*I.R.Shafarevich*, Basic algebraic geometry, Vol 1, Springer 1994

- Task 1 (February 7). Projective spaces (gzipped PS or PDF made from PS).
- Task 2 (February 14). Linear automorphisms of projective line, conics, and polarities (gzipped PS or PDF made from PS).
- Task 3 (February 21). Projective quadrics (gzipped PS or PDF made from PS).
- Task 4 (February 28). Pluecker–Segre–Veronese interaction (gzipped PS or PDF made from PS).
- Task 5 (March 21). Commutative algebra draught (gzipped PS or PDF).
- Task 6 (April 4). Curves (gzipped PS or PDF).
- Task 7 (April 18). Algebraic manifolds (gzipped PS or PDF).
- Task 8 (April 25). 27 lines (gzipped PS or PDF).

There is also an obligatory midterm test (aprox. in the middle of March). It makes no contribution to the final mark and should be considered as a rehearsal of the final written exam (it allows to make necessary corrections if something goes not entirely as it was planned). Here is a real variant of the midterm test problems: gzipped PS.
