Title: Integral extensions, valuation rings, and the Cohen-Seidenberg Theorems

Abstract: We will discuss integral dependence, integral closure, valuation rings, and related concepts, which will culminate in a proof of the Cohen-Seidenberg Theorems (The “Going-Up” and “Going-Down” Theorems) and a form of Hilbert’s Nullstellensatz.
