"Almost (generically) free of Chevalley"
This week, we'll go through the gritty details of Chevalley's theorem. Along the way, we'll see Grothendieck's Generic Freeness Lemma, and get to review some facts about rings. We'll then use this to prove the Nullstellensatz. If time permits, we'll finish Section 7.4 and discuss some applications in elimination theory.
