Reading the first two books of EGA with some guidance from Brian Conrad on what to skip was quite an experience I had assumed that it would be like Hartshorne, only more so, with huge heavy machinery constantly being dropped on my head. You want to be able to do exercises, then answer questions, then ask questions, then do something new.

Thus it seems worthwhile to mention that, while non-Noetherian schemes arise naturally in certain contexts as Kevin Buzzard noted in a comment on David Levahi’s answer grothrndieck, I think these contexts are pretty uncommon unless one is doing a certain style of arithmetic geometry. I think the stacks project is close to approaching this, and indeed may have already approached it and started moving beyond!

Grothendieck outlined what was meant to be in chapters V-VII, at least, and some handwritten prenotes existed for a small part of those.

Consider early 20 century point set topology: And it has the mesmerizing quality of reading EGA, or of a well cross-referenced encyclopedia: First you skim the subjects to have a general idea and to orient yourself. Further, Grothendieck wrote EGA for learning algebraic geometry, one needs only little french to read it rgothendieck in any case learning french is a big personal extension.

When you are starting to learn algebraic geometry you have to cover a lot of material. Though reading it fully in itself might be not the best idea — there are lots of great introductions to many concepts of algebraic geometry.


Mathematics > Algebraic Geometry

There is just so much stuff there that is not available anywhere else. I read parts of 4.

Edit Expanding on this it seems a lot of people seems grlthendieck just flame: After a dispute with Springer, Grothendieck refused the permission for reprints of the series.

On the other hand, when you are trying to prove your theorems, you might well find techincal tools in them which are very helpful, so it is useful to have some sense of what is in them and what sort of tools they provide. EGA can be a hard read, but it is also more complete than Hartshorne.

Hartshorne, Some complex-point-of-view book e. Now, I’m able to read math sources in french easily. The French language may be a barrier for some, but one doesn’t have to “learn French” to learn enough grothendiecck understand EGA. I should say something about the French.

Last revised on April 22, at Relatively few successful practicing researchers hold these views, but I have heard them expressed more than once by younger people. Dear Anonymous, No need to be ashamed I’ve been there too as have many others.

Learn what you need, do some reading for fun, and do no more. Post as a guest Name.

Dear Ravi, your sentence Some will read them later for “pleasure”, like reading the classics is very unexpected, profound and thought-provoking. In the s it became obvious that the lack of availability of the SGA was becoming more and more of a problem to researchers and graduate students in algebraic geometry: My mother tongue is Turkish, I learned French language within 5 months from Rosetta Stone software and Google translate.

I’d say a third of my students have a good facility with EGA and possibly parts of SGA, and the rest wouldn’t have looked at them; it depends on what they think about. Sign up using Email and Password. Much of what I might say was already said by Matt Emerton.

Certainly Griffiths and Harris for the very basics, but then And then they usually prefer EGA to grotehndieck expository books. That was one principle of Grothendieck: However, I have a hard time with this point too: Post Your Answer Discard 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 sva to these policies.

But you will likely have to find your inspiration elsewhere.

I’m surprised, reading the various answers and comments to this question, how much support there is for the idea of reading EGA. So you go up to a bigger DVR B by making some base extension. Note that there is a chapter 0 that continues at the beginning of each chapter, establishing preliminaries from topologycategory theorycommutative algebrahomological algebraetc. But note that Bloch is also an illustrious algebraic geometer, so it is worth noting his opinion as well!

Do you think he would’ve found it offensive? Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. By themselves, they are not likely for most people to provide the inspiration for new results. That’s proof enough for me. It is easy to be mesmerized.

I needed some facts concerning differential operators for my PhD thesis. If you are serious about arithmetic geometry, then it is hard to avoid reading mathematical French.

My advisor is a specialist in Grothendieck algebraic geometry and Noncommutative algebraic geometry.
