abstract = {In the first part of this book, we discussed at great length equations in two variables of the formf(x,y) = 0, wherefis a polynomial of degreed> 0 with coefficients in a fieldK. Such an equation defines a “plane curve”C. For any fieldK′ that contains the fieldK, we can wonder about the set of all solutions of the equation when the variables are given values fromK′. We call this setC(K′).We saw that in order to make the degree offequal to the number of intersections of any probing},
