    Homework: Read Introduction chapter from, Algorithmic Algebra by Bubhaneshwar Mishra. Also try going through "Historical Ramblings in Algebraic Geometry and Related Algebra" by Shreeram S. Abhyankar, The American Mathematical Monthly, Vol. 83, No. 6 (Jun. - Jul., 1976), pp. 409-448. From here.

  • 11 AUG 08: examples for division in k[x1,...xn], idea of Grobner bases , Equivalence relations.

  • 13 AUG 08: Introduction to Groups, construction of Z_{n} (for this, I will use division algorithm for integers, but proof of this I will do it in some extra class before which I will cover Axioms for Natural Numbers, Mathematical Induction, Construction of Integers); Subgroups

  • 20 AUG 08: Cosets, Group homomorphism, Isomorphism theorems, Def. of rings.

  • 19 SEP 08: Implicit and Parametric descriptions, Ideal membership problem and its applications.

  • 22 SEP 08: Monomial Orders, Monomial Ideals

  • 29 SEP 08: Hilbert Bases Theorem (HBT) and Grobner Bases

  • 1 OCT 08: Ascending Chain Condition (ACC) and HBT

  • 6 OCT 08: Several characterizations of Grobner bases and Buchberger Criterion (I will prove this result later when we go back and started studying k[x1,...xn])
