In algebraic geometry, a field of mathematics, an equidimensional scheme (or, pure dimensional scheme) is a scheme all of whose irreducible components are of the same dimension. All irreducible schemes are equidimensional.
In affine space, the union of a line and a point not on the line is not equidimensional. In general, if two closed subschemes of some scheme, neither containing the other, have unequal dimensions, then their union is not equidimensional.
