Post as a guest Name. Virtually all math books do have at least minor errors. However, in order to do the exercises in Atiyah and Macdonald which are the most important part of the text, ho my opinionyou will need all the prerequisites above.

This follows directly from Exercise 5.

Maybe in page 22, in the proof of corollary 2. Macdonaldd amount of commutative algebra one learns from this small, slender, book, with its hundreds of exercises, has always fascinated me. To be frank, MO just turned out to be a repository for the Cassels-Froehlich errata rather than anything else.

But rather for more experienced students who want to become well prepared for algebraic geometry than for someone who recently took his first steps in algebra. I am currently doing a one semester course on groups and rings where we have learned about so inyroduction Suppose i is false”. So, it’s very different to just posting once here and then sitting back and hoping which, I thinkis what is happening here, although I do apologise if I’ve got this wrong. It takes me longer to read a page of AM because it’s so dense!

I’ll list in parentheses the page numbers of the translation where the original error still occurs for the 5 people who might macdonlad. LSpice thanks for your timely response! Is there any source available online which lists inaccuracies and gaps? It’s not immediately obvious to me that it is surjective.

You don’t actually need a lot of abstract algebra knowledge before reading A-M. Online solution sets I count five, in various stages of completion seem to either not notice this problem or treat it as something too obvious to merit consideration. There were also completely original mistakes added especially for the translation!

Pageline 16, Example: Do you think we should create an errata here? Macdonald’s name, to avoid confusion with the less famous group theorist Ian D. What I can’t do is to obtain the second part of 5. As your list is pretty detailed and nearly complete, let me mention a missing detail: Evidently I was wrong.

In more detail, my current approach to the second part of 5. I really pushed to make the errata, and, because I had a deadline myself the LMS wanted to republish with the errata in I had to push the people I was asking. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.
