Howdy folks,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good place to start learning algebraic geometry as might be relevant for current/recent mathematical physics.

I have opened Griffiths and Harris and found it sprawling ad frustruating.

For the sake of judging what might be appropriate, i am mainly interested in physics but i have completed stadarnd first year math course work in topology, algebra and analysis and additionally taken courses in functional analysis, differnetial topology, differetial geometry and alebraic topology...so i guess i "know" about what averymodest begining third year grad student in math has learned.

Recomedations for several complex variables would be appreciated as well.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
