Math 216 (Foundations Of Algebraic Geometry) Notes

This page contains notes for the 2011-2012 version of Math 216 (Foundations of Algebraic Geometry), and were refined over the previous year (and earlier) thanks to many comments and suggestions from around the world. Here is the website for the course, and more discussion on the evolving notes are here.

The table of contents, introduction, bibliography, and index (if any) are not properly edited/written/thought through, so please don't bother giving suggestions/complaints/comments about them. (Anything else is fair game.) I'm including them because it would look odder if they were not there. (The table of contents may give you a clue of what is coming, but some topics are not yet included.)
