Commutative Algebra has seen an extraordinary development in the last few years.  Long standing conjectures have been proven and new connections to different areas of mathematics have been built.  This summer graduate school will consist of three mini-courses (4 lectures each) on fundamental topics in commutative algebra that are not covered in the standard courses.  Each course will be accompanied by problem sessions focused on research.  Six general colloquium-style lectures will be given by invited scholars who will also attend the school and help with afternoon research activities.
