Anandavardhanan (IIT, Bombay)
Lecture 1, June 06: Basics of Rings & Modules, Examples, Free modules.
Lecture 2, June 07: Discussed free modules over a PID in some detail.
Lecture 3, June 08: Discussed structure theorem for a f.g module over a PID.
Lecture 4, June 09: Applications to canonical forms. Also discussed the elementary divisors theorem.
Lectures closely followed relevant sections in Lang's Algebra.
Sandeep Varma (TIFR Mumbai)
The topics covered were: brief introduction to the following topics: Noetherian rings and modules (proof of Hilbert's basis theorem omitted), localization (many proofs were omitted), nil radical and Jacobson radical, primary decomposition (stated the result, sketched part of the proof of existence).
Manish Kumar (ISI Bangalore)
Except for valuation rings, other materials from the syllabus was discussed. Integral extensions were talked about in details, their behaviour with respect to Quotients and localizations, properties of normal domains, going up and going theorem were proved. Noether normalization was also proved. Finiteness of ingeral closure were discussed (the proofs require background (galois theory) which the participants lacked and hence were only sketched). Various versions of Hilbert nullstellensatz was also discussed though there was not enough time to prove it. In my opinion the syllabus needs to be reworked a little bit. In particular each of the three AFS should have a mix of Groups, Rings and Fields to sort out interdependency. And given the general nature of the audience some materials can be taken of the syllabus.
Suresh Naik (ISI, Bangalore)
1.Basic examples of finite dimensional commutative algebras over a field,classified all 2-dimensional algebras over real and complex numbers and modules over such algebras, role of idempotents and nilpotents.
2.Classified all reduced finite-dimensional algebrasover complex numbers. Introduced divisional algebras. Described (left, right,2-sided) ideals in matrix algebras over a division ring.
3.Simple and semi-simple modules.Described finitely generated (left) modules over matrix algebras.
4.Schur lemma,Artin-Wedderburn decomposition for finite-dimensional semi-simple algebras over a field, central division algebras over complex numbers. Mentioned group rings for finite groups.
Priyavrath D (CMI, Chennai)
Lecture 1: Review of derivatives including and inverse and implicit function theorems. Unfortunately I was not able to spend time on smooth partitions of unity. I did try and give an intuitive idea though.
Lecture 2: Manifolds in Euclidean spaces with relevant definitions and examples; submanifolds, products of manifolds etc.
Lecture 3: Tangent spaces and derivative of a map between manifolds.
Lecture 4: immersions, submersions and the preimage theorem (with all the standard examples). I could not reach stability and transversality.
