Student masters basic concepts and tools of algebraic geometry.

Knowledge and understanding: Understanding of basic concepts and theorems of algebraic geometry, and their role in some other areas.

Application: In the areas of mathematics that deal with geometric objects, in theoretical physics, and elsewhere.

Reflection: Understanding the theory on the basis of examples and applications.

Transferable skills: Formulation and solution of problems in an appropriate setup, solution and analysis of the results in examples, recognizing algebraic structue in geometric objects.
