Important documents


  • Here’s a link to the translation of Emmy Noether’s paper, Idealtheorie in Ringbereichen
  • I suggest Googling around for an English translation of Serre’s “GAGA” paper.
  • Teacher: So y = r cubed over 3. And if you determine the rate of change in this curve correctly, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
    [The class laughs except for Bart who appears confused.]
    Teacher: Don’t you get it, Bart? Derivative dy = 3 r squared dr over 3, or r squared dr, or r dr r.
