2002 Computations in Algebraic Geometry with Macaulay 2  
This chapter introduces Macaulay 2 commands for some elementary computations in algebraic geometry. Familiarity with Gröbner bases is assumed. Many students and researchers alike have their first encounter with Gröbner bases through the delightful text books [1] and [2] by David Cox, John Little and Donal O'Shea. This chapter illustrates the use of Macaulay 2 for some computations discussed in these books. It can be used as a supplement for an advanced undergraduate course or first-year
