Algebraic Geometry

"Algebraic geometry is one of the central subjects of mathematics... and intersection theory is at the heart of algebraic geometry."

Chapter 1. Overture Edit

Section 1.1: The Chow Groups and their Ring Structure Edit

  • In the example showing that $ Div_0(\alpha) $ doesn't necessarily correspond to the divisor of the numerator of any representation of $ \alpha $, there is a small typo: M should be the line y = z = 0. Also, to calculate the divisor, note that on this cone x/y = y/z.
