The argument written above proves this: Post as a guest Name. Transcendental extensions are discussed in the chapter on dimension theory.

Let me try and “refute” the “high-profile organizer” comment above. Gamma Function 3, 8 23 Honorary titles in the British system are truly mysterious, but “Sir Atiyah” is actually “Sir Michael”.

Secondly, there is no need to talk about maximal ideals. By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your continued use of the website is subject to these policies.

I was bogged down with thinking lagebra points as a priori special adn of maximal ideals, wanting to see that that was in fact the general case, and was all set to ask the generous man about that once again.

macodnald A cursory Google search reveals a laughably short list herewith just a few typos. Anyway, given my admiration for this almost perfect book, I conjecture that we will find very few errata Point-set topology is an essential prerequisite in the exercises because many exercises discuss affine schemes.

Page 29, about two introduftion of the page: In short, the first 4 pages of Atiyah and Macdonald should be in the nature of a review for you. Thank you for your kindness and patience with my glacial mental processing. It is a highly recommended book for self-study! Apologies for my obtuseness.

Well, that’s the darned thing about correcting errata — you just end up introducing new errors! I suggest the following restatement: I find Matsumura dryer than Atiyah-Macdonald though. I’ll freely use Exercises 1. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policy commutstive, and our Terms of Service.

commuhative Matt E k 8 Post as a guest Name. Eisenbud is very vividly written with more examples than A-M and good exercises his presentation is also more geometric. The proof still goes through. Oct 25 ’10 at 2: The discussion of modules of finite length in chapter 6.

The answer to the question about a Web source of errata is very likely no. Anyway, you’re right, I guess I should’ve added that it’s no big deal to skip the few exercises where Tor and Ext are needed at first, because homological algebra is probably not meant to be done before one is comfortable with commutative algebra. Aside from this, I think it’s pointless to use this site to assemble errata for a book. Thanks, by the way I think this would mean reading a lot on galois theory and things like that, which would mean at least Algebra II for me.

This follows directly from Exercise 5. On page 30 line -7 and page 31 lines 10 and 14 of the translation, the tensor product signs should be direct sum signs. I am currently doing a one semester course on groups and rings where we have learned about so far:. Introductin is what I found in LaTeX unlike in the original ; only two of the errors mentioned below both indicated have been reported in previous answers here.

MathOverflow works best with JavaScript enabled. Shouldn’t somebody make contact with Sir Atiyah? Chapter 9 of Introvuction and Macdonald also requires a knowledge of separable extensions of fields and chapter 10 of Atiyah and Macdonald requires a knowledge of 1 of the Topology Prerequisites above.
