Revision as of 22:17, 25 September 2021
When: 6:00 PM Thursdays
Where: TBD
Who: All undergraduate and graduate students interested in algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and related fields are welcome to attend.
Why: The purpose of this seminar is to learn algebraic geometry and commutative algebra by giving and listening to talks in a informal setting. Sometimes people present an interesting paper they find. Other times people give a prep talk for the Algebraic Geometry Seminar. Other times people give a series of talks on a topic they have been studying in-depth. Regardless the goal of GAGS is to provide a supportive and inclusive place for all to learn more about algebraic geometry and commutative algebra.
How: If you want to get emails regarding time, place, and talk topics (which are often assigned quite last minute) add yourself to the gags mailing list: gags@g-groups.wisc.edu by sending an email to gags+subscribe@g-groups.wisc.edu. If you prefer (and are logged in under your wisc google account) the list registration page is here.
Organizers: John Cobb, Colin Crowley.
Give a talk!
We need volunteers to give talks this semester. If you're interested, please fill out this form. Beginning graduate students are particularly encouraged to give a talk, since it's a great way to get your feet wet with the material. If you would like some talk ideas, see the list on the main page.
Fall 2021 Topic Wish List
This was assembled using input from an interest form at the beginning of the semester. Choose one and you will have the rare guarantee of having one interested audience member. Feel free to add your own.
- Introduction to descent, or other topics in the book "FGA Explained"
- Stacks for Kindergarteners
- Applications of Beilinson resolution of the diagonal
- Wth did June Huh do and what is combinatorial hodge theory?
- Computing things about Toric varieties
- Reductive groups and flag varieties
- Introduction to arithmetic geometry -- what are some big picture ideas of what "goes wrong" when not over an algebraically closed field?
- Geothendieck '66, "On the de Rham Cohomology of Algebraic Varieties"
- Going from line bundles and divisors to vector bundles and chern classes
- A History of the Weil Conjectures
- A pre talk for any other upcoming talk
Being an audience member
The goal of GAGS is to create a safe and comfortable space inclusive of all who wish to expand their knowledge of algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. In order to promote such an environment in addition to the standard expectations of respect/kindness all participants are asked to following the following guidelines:
- Do Not Speak For/Over the Speaker
- Ask Questions Appropriately
