# Basic Algebraic Geometry 1: Varieties in Projective Space by Igor R. Shafarevich, M. Reid

By Igor R. Shafarevich, M. Reid

This publication is a revised and elevated re-creation of the 1st 4 chapters of Shafarevich’s recognized introductory booklet on algebraic geometry. along with correcting misprints and inaccuracies, the writer has additional lots of new fabric, ordinarily concrete geometrical fabric equivalent to Grassmannian forms, airplane cubic curves, the cubic floor, degenerations of quadrics and elliptic curves, the Bertini theorems, and basic floor singularities.

P( ~), express a' and b' in terms of a and b. If (~) is a given vector and (~:) = Exercise 3. For each of the vectors U in Exercise I, let S(X) = (~:) denote the reflection of (; ) in the line along U. Calculate the coordinates x' and y' in terms of x andy. In each case draw a diagram and indicate several vectors and their images. Exercise 4. Let L be the line 5x - 2y = 0, and let S denote reflection in L. If (~) is a given vector and (~:) = S(~). express a ' and b' in terms of a and b. 3. Let D2 be the transformation which sends each vector into twice itself: D2(X) = 2X.

The set of points {U + rX I0 " r " I} is also a segment, from U to U+X. If X and U are linearly independent vectors, then the set of vectors {rX + sU 10 " r " 1, 0 " s " I} describes the parallelogram determined by X and U (see Fig. 27). The sets {rX 10" r" I} and {sU 10" s " I} form two edges of the parallelogram and the other two edges are {rX + U I0 " r " I} and {X + sU I0" s " I}. The four corners of the parallelogram are, in order: U, 0, X, U + X. If X and U are linearly dependent, but not both 0, then the four points U, 0, X, and U + X all lie on the same line and the set {rX + sUIO" 1, o " s " I} is then a degenerate or collapsed parallelogram.

If X and U are linearly dependent, but not both 0, then the four points U, 0, X, and U + X all lie on the same line and the set {rX + sUIO" 1, o " s " I} is then a degenerate or collapsed parallelogram. ;;; I} is also just the point 0, so the parallelogram degenerates to a single point. ;;; I} is the parallelogram T(II)={rT(X)+sT(U)IO';;;r';;; I, O';;;s';;; I}. Even if X,U is a linearly independent pair, the parallelogram T(II) might be degenerate. Exercise 5. Describe the parallelograms determined by the following pairs of vectors: (i), (:), (b) (~), (i), (c) (n, (=~), (d) (~), (n, (a) (e) (~), (~).
