In 1966-1968 Yuri Manin gave a 2 year lecture course in algebraic geometry at Moscow State University. The course starts from scratch and culminates in the proof of the Riemann-Roch theorem following SGA6 with some simplifications. The course was subsequently published by the Moscow University Press in two parts. Part 2 contained the proof of the Riemann-Roch theorem and Part 1 the preliminary material. (Part 2 also appeared as a paper in the Russian Mathematical Surveys.)

However, the version of Part 1 that I have has only chapters 1 to 15, and in Part 2 Manin makes references to chapters 25 and 22 of Part 1. This is why I would like to ask whether any more of Part 1 exists, apart from chapters 1-15, and if so, whether it has been made publicly available.

Thank you.

Do you read Russian? – Mahdi Majidi-Zolbanin Feb 25 '12 at 23:05
Yes, I can read Russian. – the_dude Feb 25 '12 at 23:17
Have you seen this question and answers to it?… – Mahdi Majidi-Zolbanin Feb 26 '12 at 4:38
@Mahdi: That is the notes OP mentions. The first part goes up to Section 15. – Mark Sapir Feb 26 '12 at 8:23

I've uploaded the scan of complete 1966-1968 lectures. The site doesn't seem to work pretty well, so in case you're unable to download it I can send it by email.

You could upload it on Google Drive and make it public. – Chandan Singh Dalawat Jun 24 '12 at 5:08
The link doesn't work. Could you send those notes to me? – Peter Arndt May 3 '13 at 23:29

The link in this answer is broken. Perhaps someone who got a copy could act on Chandan's suggestion? – David Roberts Apr 10 '14 at 4:24

Hi Dmitry,

I am interested in the note but I cannot find your email address. I would rather make this as a comment, but my reputation point is still below 50. If you read this posting, please send your note to I would appreciate it.
