**Algebraic Curves: an Introduction to Algebraic Geometry**

by William Fulton

**Publisher**: Benjamin 1969**ISBN/ASIN**: B000OFMIJW**Number of pages**: 129

**Description**:

The aim of these notes is to develop the theory of algebraic curves from the viewpoint of modern algebraic geometry, but without excessive prerequisites. We have assumed that the reader is familiar with some basic properties of rings, ideals, and polynomials, such as is often covered in a one-semester course in modern algebra; additional commutative algebra is developed in later sections.
