(See all past talks
ordered according to speaker and
date)
2014 Spring Talks
The first half of this semester is devoted to toric
varieties. The speaker will be mostly MESUT SAHIN. The basic source
will be the book: Toric Varieties, Cox, Little and Schenck, Graduate studies in mathematics vol 124, American Mathematical Society, 2011. |
The second half of this semester will be devoted to
deformation theory. The speaker for this topic will be exclusively EMRE
COSKUN. He will follow the book: Deformations of Algebraic Schemes, Edoardo Sernesi, Springer-Verlag, 2006. (Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften, no. 334) |
Abstract: After recalling briefly basics of sheaf of a divisor on a normal variety, we will concentrate on the toric case. In particular, we give an explicit description of global sections of the sheaf of a torus invariant divisor. |
Abstract: We will continue with divisors and sheaves on toric varieties. Reference is chapter 4 of Cox, Little and Schenck. |
Abstract: We will talk about quasicoherent sheaves on the normal toric variety which come from multigraded modules over its Cox ring. |
Abstract: We will talk about The Toric Ideal-Variety Correspondence from Cox-Little-Schenck's book Toric Varieties, see in particular page 220. |
Abstract: .We will talk about the correspondence between closed subschemes in a normal toric variety and B-saturated homogeneous ideals in its Cox ring. |
Abstract: We will
talk about how multigraded Hilbert functions can be used to compute
dimensions of toric codes and list some basic properties of multigraded
Hilbert functions. |
Abstract: We
will give a nice formula for the dimension of toric complete intersection
codes. We also give a bound on the multigraded regularity of a zero
dimensional complete intersection subscheme of a projective simplicial
toric variety. The latter is important to eliminate trivial codes. |
Abstract: In this series of lectures, we will develop deformation theory of functors of Artin rings. After discussing extensions of algebras over a fixed base ring, we will develop the theory of functors of Artin rings. These occur as 'local' versions of various moduli problems, and can give information about the local structure (e.g. smoothness, dimension) of moduli spaces near a point. We apply the theory to concrete examples of moduli problems, such as invertible sheaves on a variety, Hilbert schemes and Quot schemes. |
Abstract: Last week we defined the $R$-module $Ex_A(R,I)$. This week we will continue from there and talk about the extensions of schemes. |

Caner Koca-[Vanderbild] - The
Monge-Ampere Equations and Yau's Proof of the Calabi Conjecture
Abstract: The resolution of Calabi's Conjecture by S.-T. Yau in 1977 is considered to be one of the crowning achievements in mathematics in 20th century. Although the statement of the conjecture is very geometric, Yau's proof involves solving a non-linear second order elliptic PDE known as the complex Monge-Ampere equation. An immediate consequence of the conjecture is the existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics on compact Kähler manifolds with vanishing first Chern class (better known as Calabi-Yau Manifolds). In this expository talk, I will start with the basic definitions and facts from geometry to understand the statement of the conjecture, then I will show how to turn it into a PDE problem, and finally I will highlight the important steps in Yau's proof. |

Emre Coskun-[ODTÜ] - Deformation
Theory 5
Abstract: We will discuss the closing remarks of deformation theory for this semester. |

Caner Koca-[Vanderbilt] - Einstein's
Equations on Compact Complex Surfaces
Abstract: After a brief review of Einstein's Equations in General Relativity and Riemannian Geometry, I will talk about one of my results: The only positively curved Hermitian solution to Einstein's Equations (in vacuo) is the Fubini-Study metric on the complex projective plane. |

Caner Koca-[Vanderbilt] - Extremal
Kähler Metrics and Bach-Maxwell Equations
Abstract: Extremal Kähler metrics are introduced by Calabi in 1982 as part of the quest for finding "canonical" Riemannian metrics on compact complex manifolds. Examples of such metrics include the Kähler-Einstein metrics, or more generally, Kähler metrics with constant scalar curvature. In this talk, I will start with an expository discussion on extremal metrics. Then I will show that, in dimension 4, these metrics satisfy a conformally-invariant version of the classical Einstein-Maxwell equations, known as the Bach-Maxwell equations, and thereby are related to physics (conformal gravity) in a surprising and mysterious way. |
