Horrocks has shown that every vector bundle on ℙ2 and ℙ3 admits a certain “double-ended resolution” by line bundles, which he called a monad. We reprove Horrocks' results taking much care of uniqueness of the monads so obtained. This technique should be useful for constructing moduli spaces of stable vector bundles.
