By David Eisenbud,Joe Harris

This publication can shape the root of a moment direction in algebraic geometry. As motivation, it takes concrete questions from enumerative geometry and intersection idea, and offers instinct and method, in order that the coed develops the power to resolve geometric difficulties. The authors clarify key rules, together with rational equivalence, Chow earrings, Schubert calculus and Chern periods, and readers will delight in the ample examples, many supplied as workouts with strategies on hand on-line. Intersection is anxious with the enumeration of options of platforms of polynomial equations in numerous variables. it's been an lively sector of arithmetic because the paintings of Leibniz. Chasles' nineteenth-century calculation that there are 3264 soft conic aircraft curves tangent to 5 given normal conics used to be a big landmark, and was once the muse at the back of the name of this booklet. Such computations have been motivation for Poincaré's improvement of topology, and for plenty of next theories, in order that intersection idea is now a imperative subject of contemporary mathematics.
