Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students are familiarized with a class of important groups and algebraic varieties, which play a significant role in many areas of mathematics. They have learnt how the methods of group theory and algebraic geometry can complement eachother and lead to deeper understanding. They are able to name the essential propositions of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and will be able to comprehend and explain them.
