LECTURES ON LINEAR DIFFERENTIAL OPERATORS
OVER COMMUTATIVE ALGEBRAS
(The 1st Italian Diffiety School - July, 1998)
Author: Joseph KRASIL'SHCHIK
in collaboration with BARBARA PRINARI
Lectures given in July 1998 at the 1st Italian Diffiety School in Forino, Italy.
These Lecture Notes contain introductory material to algebraic theory of linear differential operators over commutative algebras. The basics of this theory were exposed in a short paper by A. M. Vinogradov in 1972.
The initial course, held in Forino (Summer 1998) at the First Italian Diffiety School, consisted of ten lectures and a number of practical lessons, but in preparation of the printed version it became clear that a more logical structure should contain five parts (which are also called lectures below):
We conclude these notes with a series of exercises which are an essential
part of the main text.
