**Finite Group Schemes**

by Richard Pink

**Publisher**: ETH Zurich 2005**Number of pages**: 78

**Description**:

The aim of the lecture course is the classification of finite commutative group schemes over a perfect field of characteristic p, using the classical approach by contravariant Dieudonne theory. The theory is developed from scratch; emphasis is placed on complete proofs. No prerequisites other than a good knowledge of algebra and the basic properties of categories and schemes are required.
