## Examples in noncommutative geometry

##### Abstract:

Commutative rings and algebraic geometry are tightly linked, since an algebraic variety is the set of solutions to some set of polynomials in a polynomial ring. Many people have tried to find theories of geometry which have a similar relationship to noncommutative rings. I will give an introduction to one such remarkable theory which is called noncommutative projective geometry, with many examples.
