This course will cover the basics of commutative and homological algebra, in preparation for more advanced work in algebra and related fields. We will plan to work through material from approximately the first 18 sections of the text

Course prerequisite: Math 654 or equivalent. The course is designed particularly for graduate students in their second year or beyond, with an interest in algebra, geometry, or topology. Students who plan to take Math 620 (Algebraic Geometry) in Spring 2016 may benefit by taking this course.

Course grades will be based on homework and class participation.
