### Help in this notation in Fulton's Algebraic Curves book

I'm reading Fulton's Algebraic Curves book, I'm stuck in the following proposition (page 105): In fact, what I didn't understand is the following notation in the proof of this proposition: Why ...

### How to prove this comment of Fulton

I'm trying to understand why this is true in Fulton's Algebraic Curves: Why we add this point $(0,\ldots, 0)$? Why this equality is true? I really need help. Thanks in advance.

### What's the relation between prime spectrum and affine space?

Let $A$ be a ring ,$X$ be the set of all prime ideal of $A$.For each subset $E$ of $A$,let $V(E)$ denoted the set of all prime ideals of $A$ which contain $E$. we have: ...

### Coordinate ring of the unit circle is never a UFD?

I'm reading some notes about coordinate rings. On the third example on the second page, the author notes that the coordinate ring $K[\mathcal{C}]$ is not a UFD. If $f=X^2+Y^2-1$, then in ...

### Local parameter of curves in affine n-space

I'm looking for a double answer to this question: a mathematical one (say, if the statement is correct or not) and a philosophical one (say, why we do expect this to be true, or not). Let $k$ be a ...

### Exercise 1.11 of Eisenbud

I'm doing the exercises from Eisenbud's Commutative Algebra with a view toward Algebraic Geometry, and I don't understand part of one of them, ex. 1.11 a): Exercise 1.11 a: Over $\mathbb{C}$, ...

### Help in this question in Fulton's algebraic curves

I'm trying to solve this question: In item (a) I used the fact $O_a(V)$ is a Noetherian local ring and the only maximal ideal is $(x-a)$. First note that the non-units of $O_a(V)$ are the elements ...

### When is $\mathcal{H}om$ functor exact in the category of presheaves

Let $C$ be a projective $\mathbb{C}$-scheme of pure dimension $1$. Suppose that $C$ is local complete intersection in $\mathbb{P}^3$. Let $C_1$ be an irreducible component of $C$, also of pure ...

### What is the length of the following local ring

Let $f:Y\to X$ be a finite etale cover of smooth projective connected varieties. (Or, just a finite degree connected topological cover of connected Riemann surfaces.) Let $y\in Y$ and let $x=f(y)$. ...

### Integral closure in the total ring of fractions

My question is linked with normalization of reduced algebraic curves that are not necessarily irreducible. Let $(A,\mathfrak{m})$ be a local reduced noetherian ring with Krull dimension $1$, let ...
this will probably be an easy-to-answer and a not-well-posed question, since I'm a total beginner in the field, but here goes: Let $V(F)$ and $V(G)$ be two projective curves in $\mathbb{P}^2$ ...
