“Introspection”
So far we have been streaming ahead, defining an affine scheme without a moment’s hesitation. It is time to take a moment to still our minds and reflect.

"Five or six things Ehsaan wants me to talk about"
Ehsaan gave me a list of five or six things he wants me to talk about this Friday. The list includes: the definition of ringed spaces, locally ringed spaces, schemes; an example of a nonaffine scheme, etc. I plan to talk about these things.

"Adding Gaussian elimination to local consistency checking  2"
In this second of several lectures, I will present a polynomialtime consistency checking algorithm for constraint networks over a finite template having a Taylor polymorphism. I conjecture that the algorithm is complete for Maltsev templates, and in future lectures will provide evidence supporting this conjecture.

“Varieties versus schemes”
Last week, we saw the definition of a scheme. In this weeks talk, well present more examples of schemes and illustrate how, in some cases, schemes provide a better framework than varieties for studying certain geometric questions.
