Plane Algebraic Curves
The aim of the module is to introduce and study algebraic curves in the real plane, the complex plane and the complex projective plane. [Such curves are defined by a polynomial equation and the course involves an interplay between the geometry of the curves and the algebra of polynomials.]
At the end of the module you should be familiar with and able to carry out operations related to curves in the complex affine plane and in the complex projective plane.
Example: Two hour closed examination in Summer Term (90%), Coursework (10%). Note that coursework submitted after the advertised deadlines will be given a mark of zero.
