Algebraic GeometryRobin Hartshorne studied algebraic geometry with Oscar Zariski and David Mumford at Harvard, and with J.P. Serre and A. Grothendieck in Paris. After receiving his Ph.D. from Princeton in 1963, Hartshorne became a Junior Fellow at Harvard, then taught there for several years. In 1972 he moved to California where he is now Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. He is the author of "Residues and Duality" (1966), "Foundations of Projective Geometry (1968), "Ample Subvarieties of Algebraic Varieties" (1970), and numerous research titles. His current research interest is the geometry of projective varieties and vector bundles. He has been a visiting professor at the College de France and at Kyoto University, where he gave lectures in French and in Japanese, respectively. Professor Hartshorne is married to Edie Churchill, educator and psychotherapist, and has two sons. He has travelled widely, speaks several foreign languages, and is an experienced mountain climber. He is also an accomplished amateur musician: he has played the flute for many years, and during his last visit to Kyoto he began studying the shakuhachi.

Review: Algebraic Geometry (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
User Review  Joecolelife  GoodreadsRobin Hartshorne is a master of Grothendieck's general machinery for generalizing the tools of classical algebraic geometry to apply to families of varieties, and more broadly to number theory. A ... Read full review
Review: Algebraic Geometry (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
User Review  James Swenson  GoodreadsWhere's the geometry? It would be far too easy to spend a year reading this book and end up knowing that the Krull dimension of the ring k[x,y] is two, but unable to explain why this indicates that ... Read full review
