** 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.*
