Book Description
This is a text for a basic course in commutative algebra, written in accordance with the following objectives.
The course should be accessible to those who have studied algebra at the beginning graduate level. For general algebraic background, see author's online text "Abstract Algebra: The Basic Graduate Year". This text will be referred to as TBGY.
The idea is to help the student reach an advanced level as quickly and efficiently as possible.
 In Chapter 1, the theory of primary decomposition is developed so as to apply to modules as well as ideals.
 In Chapter 2, integral extensions are treated in detail, including the lying over, going up and going down theorems. The proof of the going down theorem does not require advanced field theory.
 Valuation rings are studied in Chapter 3, and the characterization theorem for discrete valuation rings is proved.
 Chapter 4 discusses completion, and covers the ArtinRees lemma and the Krull intersection theorem.
 Chapter 5 begins with a brief digression into the calculus of finite differences, which clarifies some of the manipulations involving Hilbert and HilbertSamuel polynomials. The main result is the dimension theorem for finitely generated modules over Noetherian local rings. A corollary is Krull's principal ideal theorem. Some connections with algebraic geometry are established via the study of affine algebras.
 Chapter 6 introduces the fundamental notions of depth, systems of parameters, and Msequences.
 Chapter 7 develops enough homological algebra to prove, under approprate hypotheses, that all maximal Msequences have the same length.
 The brief Chapter 8 develops enough theory to prove that a regular local ring is an integral domain as well as a CohenMacaulay ring. After completing the course, the student should be equipped to meet the Koszul complex, the AuslanderBuchsbaum theorems, and further properties of CohenMacaulay rings in a more advanced course.
