Topics in Commutative Algebra
University of Sulaimani, Sulaimani
September 3 - 7, 2022

The school aims at providing an introduction to various basic aspects of theory of commutative rings as well as a first introduction of its use in modern algebraic geometry. The school is directed at advanced undergraduate students of Sulaimani University and others from KAR, Iraqi and neighbouring countries Universities.
