  • Wikipedia of Algebraic Geometry Will Forever Be Incomplete. (2022)

    The Stacks project is meant to be a comprehensive Bourbaki-style textbook, not an encyclopedic survey, so the Wikipedia comparison is a miss. (The WP has a textbook level of detail on some topics, with proofs and examples, but these are few and far between and come from enthusiastic editors going above and beyond the WP's declared goals.)

    Stacks is not finished, however -- still a lot of "Proof. Omitted.". From what I understand, the goal is to fill them all in (otherwise there would be references to the literature in their stead), but ultimately it is still mostly a one-person project (see ).

    I once filled in one of those missing proofs, only to see Johan replace it by a much better one that I would never have thought of. And this was (for him) a technical lemma, not one of the crown jewels of the project. His dedication to the project is truly incomparable to anything except Bourbaki and Serre. And the usefulness of the work extends far beyond algebraic stacks.

  • Ask HN: What are some well-designed websites?

    Personally, I love the Stacks Project webpage (; they way it is laid out, the font, the seamless integration of LaTeX in the test ( has made me rethink mathematical text for the web.
  • Tree linking all math concepts together?
    1 project | /r/learnmath | 22 Feb 2023
    For algebraic geometry, there is the Stacks project online, which builds up all mathematics needed to understand algebraic stacks, from foundations. This time, foundations truly mean its basic axioms. Everything is proven except maybe with a few exceptions in the introduction, and everything has links. As such, it is a monstrously large project (the pdf-version is around 7500 pages iirc). This one is I think among my suggestions closest to what you had in mind. The only thing is that it again only focuses on one area of math.

  • What are the subfields of algebraic geometry?
    1 project | /r/math | 5 Nov 2022
    There is not really one good reference for algebraic geometry (even the EGA, SGA, FGA series, and that's assuming you can even plough through them all), but the Stacks Project ( is at least very good for CAG.
  • Comprehensive math education
    1 project | /r/math | 21 Oct 2022
    The Stacks Project is a massive project covering algebraic geometry. The nLab is a wiki that covers a staggering amount of material from its own, rather specific, point of view.
  • I finished Hartshorne… now what?
    1 project | /r/math | 12 Aug 2022
    Well, I talked to a friend who knows a lot of AG. He recommended "learning some things in topology like model categories" and discouraged learning about infinity categories without other stuff. Also, if you're interested in stacks, try the Stacks Project?
