You have to give them the key to enter there, explain to them the basic language. How will you know the difference? While these later revisions were more widely distributed than the original fascicles, they are still uncommon outside of libraries. A very small minority can and should and will read them as students.

I guess I am a professional algebraic geometer of a kind, albeit not a “non-arithmetic” one as specified in your question.

You will have to read papers by Deligne, Serre and other inescapable members of the French school; most of these have not been translated. Then you revisit the same topics and, with your new and better perspective, you appreciate more of it.

I mean there would be a sentence and then a seven-digit number There is a common feeling that there is an overwhelming amount one has to know just to understand the literature. It is an incredible resource, in terms of its completeness, its level of detail, its generality, its open discussion of its goals, assumptions, and choices of proof, and for many other reasons.

Hartshorne, Some complex-point-of-view book e. Dear Matthew, may I ask I am just very curious, since you know so much about Grothendick style AG and use it so fluently: Indeed, such generality, that I don’t know of any reasonable geometric situation sva you need all this generality. Sign up using Facebook. The language in EGA and SGA uses a very restricted vocabulary and simple sentence structure, so you don’t run into the sort of elaborate turns of phrase you’d find in e.

After a dispute with Springer, Grothendieck refused the permission for reprints of the series. CS1 French-language sources fr. Sign up using Facebook. Here is a list of what you must cover: Email Required, but never shown. And then you need to go back down to A again by making a descent.

The earliest of the series is FGA written alone at the end of the s; it is sort of quick outline of the theory and some deep results with proofs at the beginning of the period of the development of scheme theory?

Though reading it fully in itself might be not the best idea — there are lots of great introductions to many concepts of algebraic geometry. Now, I’m able to read math sources in french easily. Their writing is roughly synonymous with the founding of modern algebraic geometry as a field. grothensieck

I suppose I end up giving a rather mushy answer; if reading EGA sva to you, then you will probably be drawn to the kind of problems where it’s essential that you’ve read EGA. I’d say a third of my students have a good facility with EGA and possibly parts of SGA, and the rest wouldn’t have looked at them; it depends on what they think about.

Thus, under 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.

Retrieved from ” https: I do think the project of reading EGA would be of great value to an aspiring algebraic geometer; but there are lots of other projects with this property, and I don’t think reading EGA is indispensable in a way these other projects grothemdieck not.

So you go up to a bigger DVR B by making some base extension. The only reason to read Hartshorne is for the exercises. By themselves, they are not likely for most people to provide the inspiration for new results.

I should say something about the French. Expanding on this it seems a lot of people seems it’s just flame: Hartshorne’s book is good, but at times he considers only schemes over algebraically closed fields, where he could be more general.


I think it is worth thinking about two of the most significant recent theorems in algebraic geometry: So my recommendation is: See the history of this page for a list of all contributions to it. Nothing in this answer is what you’re asking for, or even all that close to it. They understand that for specific questions they have to go to this place, the only place where they can find a satisfactory answer.

If you are serious about arithmetic geometry, then it is hard to avoid reading mathematical French. His constructions are “morally wrong” but “technically correct” see his construction of the structure sheaf or the sheafification. The reputation for difficulty is, I think, unfounded. When you are starting to learn algebraic geometry you have to cover a lot of material.

The French language may be a barrier for some, but one doesn’t have to “learn French” to learn enough to understand EGA. Views Read Edit View history. Unless you have a really special interest, you shouldn’t. First you skim the subjects to have a general idea and to orient yourself. In response to a similar question asked on Terry Tao’s blog, I posted the following advice:. Note that there is a chapter 0 that continues at the beginning of each chapter, establishing preliminaries from topologycategory theorycommutative algebrahomological algebraetc.
