**Robin Hartshorne** is an algebraic geometer at Berkeley. At some point he was associated to Grothendieck’s school, for example his book *Residues and duality* is a mainly a writeup of a Grothendieck’s cycle of seminars.

His textbook **Algebraic geometry**, Springer GTM is a now a classic of the theory of schemes. The definition of coherent sheaf in that book differs from EGA definition and is well behaved on Noetherian schemes.
