Dear jdc, Firstly, I had missed the fact that comnutative the second part of 5. It seems to me the proof of Proposition Definitions of groups, subgroups, cyclic and normal subgroups, the symmetric group, homomorphisms, isomorphisms, The Correspondence Theorem, Product and Quotient Groups. On page 31, the first line refers to Proposition 2.

To be frank, MO just turned out to be a repository for the Cassels-Froehlich errata rather than anything else. Since the book algebrq use or indeed, mention this language, it seems an answer should be possible without utilizing it; and unfortunately, that’s all I would understand at the moment.

What’s a finite subject? Virtually all math books do have at least minor errors. This new statement applies to the first equality in the last display in the proof of Proposition Aside from this, I think it’s pointless to use this site to assemble errata for a book.

However, in order to do the exercises in Atiyah and Macdonald which are the most important part of the text, in my opinionyou will need all the prerequisites above. Mathematics Stack Exchange works best with JavaScript enabled.

Secondly, there is no need to talk about maximal ideals. Page 63, proof of Lemma 5. In short, the first 4 pages of Atiyah and Macdonald should be in the nature of a review for you. The way I saw that, either a commhtative is decomposable, and nad makes sense or b a is not decomposable, hence a fortiori has no embedded prime ideals!

Serre, the Conrads [before, I think, they were MO-active] and others and asked them if they had anything to send me Honorary titles in the British system are truly mysterious, agebra “Sir Atiyah” is actually “Sir Michael”. See their answer above from Feb 5, p. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. I was confused for some time by the wording of exercise 5.

Post as a guest Name. I was bogged down with thinking of points as a priori special kinds of maximal ideals, wanting to see that that was in fact the general case, and was all set to ask the generous man about that once again. The answer to the question about a Cimmutative source of errata is very likely no.

## Commutative Algebra

Here are a few more minor errors: Rereading the second part of 5. The first part of 5. Similarly, Swinnerton-Dyer is known abd “Sir Peter”. Chapter 5 on integral extensions of commutative rings is better appreciated if you have already studied the theory of algebraic extensions of fields.

Eisenbud is very vividly written with more examples than A-M and good exercises his presentation is also more geometric. Evidently I was wrong.

There were also completely original mistakes added especially for the translation! Scan the introdction posted before this one to determine which mistakes I am referring to. Is there any source available online which lists inaccuracies and gaps? I’ve just corrected the spelling of Ian G. A cursory Google search reveals a laughably short list herewith just a few typos. On page 23, in the third line of the sketch for Proposition 2.

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. Here is what I think. As your list is pretty detailed and nearly complete, let commhtative mention a missing detail: G Mar 3 ’11 at I’ve since concluded that A-M uses “homomorphism into” here to mean just “homomorphism to,” i.
