(Jacobs University)

"Affine Algebraic Geometry in Characteristic p"

Date: Mon, November 24, 2014
Time: 17:15
Place: Research II Lecture Hall

Abstract: I am going to give some examples of techniques which reduce problems in characteristic zero to a problem in characteristic p (which is solvable). Also, I will give some really weird examples due to Asanuma, which are counterexamples to certain famous problems.

The colloquium is preceded by tea from 16:45 in the Resnikoff Mathematics Common Room, Research I, 127.
