# Solutions to Hartshorne's Algebraic Geometry

The goal of this book is to eventually provide a complete, correct, central set of solutions to the exercises in Hartshorne's graduate textbook "Algebraic Geometry". There are many exercises which appear in EGA and a secondary goal would be to have references to all of these.

Please feel welcome to add solutions, correct errors, and add comments on the discussion pages.

This project is very, very young but should grow quickly as latex solutions for many exercises (see below) are available and just need to be transferred here. If you want to help with this process mention it on the discussion page (link top left).
