Real Algebra and Geometry
General Information
- Instructor: Rainer Sinn
- Office: Raum A533
- Time and Place: Classes will start online. Please sign up for the moodle course here
- Office hours: by appointment (please contact me via e-mail)
Prior knowledge in abstract algebra is sufficient. Basics in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra are helpful but not necessary.
Materials
You will find materials for the course mainly on Moodle, the learning platform used by the University of Leipzig. Here is a direct link to the course. Members of the MPI MiS should be able to login using the DFN AAI Login button, which is on the right bottom side of the Moodle website (this is not the regular login for members of the university).Sources
