This text is based on the notes for a series of five lectures to the Barcelona
Summer School in Commutative Algebra at the Centre de Recerca Matem`atica,
Institut d'Estudis Catalans, July 1526, 1996.
Joan Elias, JosŽe Giral, Rosa Maria MirŽo-Roig, and Santiago Zarzuela were suc-
cessively fantastic organizers, graceful hosts, and tactful editors. I am extremely
grateful to them for everything.
It was a pleasure to address the receptive audience, and to be part of it for
the lectures of Mark Green, Craig Huneke, Peter Schenzel, Tito Valla, Wolmer
Vasconcelos, and the talks of many others. I learned a lot, both from and at the
blackboard. Dave Jorgensen supplied a list of typos and corrections, and Alberto
Corso introduced me to XY-pic; their help is much appreciated.
Srikanth Iyengar has read more versions than he might care to recall. For all
those corrected errors and pertinent suggestions, he has my special thanks.
Finally, I wish to acknowledge my most obvious debt: these notes would not
have been written without Zoya's understanding and support.
