A recommended course for Information Security and specialization Mathematical Structures within General Mathematics. This is an introductory lecture to basic algebraic geometry focused on curves. The course is concerned with the basic notions (affine and projective variety, mappings on varieties, coordinate rings), local properties of curves, Bezout theorem and elliptic curves.

The credit will be granted for homework solutions. There will be 3 sets of problems. The necessary condition is at least 50 % of points. If the conditions are not met, it is still possible to get the credit under upon solving additional problems. The extent and deadlines for these will be decided by the lecturer.

The exam is oral, containing both theoretical and computational problems, based on the topics covers by the lecture and exercise sessions.
