## Definition of the noun Algebraic geometry

What does Algebraic geometry mean as a name of something?

**noun**

- [
*mathematics*] a branch of mathematics that studies solutions of systems of algebraic equations using both algebra and geometry.

## Writings

- "
**Algebraic geometry**" is a*book*by Solomon Lefschetz. - "
**Algebraic geometry**" is a*book*by Andrew John Sommese.- also known as "Algebraic geometry: proceedings of the international conference held in L'Aquila, Italy, May 30-June 4, 1988"

- "
**Algebraic geometry**" is a*book*by Shigeru Iitaka.- also known as "Algebraic geometry: an introduction to the birational geometry of algebraic varieties"

## Miscellanea

**Algebraic geometry** is a branch of mathematics, classically studying zeros of polynomial equations. Modern algebraic geometry is based on more abstract techniques of abstract algebra, especially commutative algebra, with the language and the problems of geometry.
