Topics in Algebraic Geometry


This seminar is aimed at second year master students, with a good background in number theory and geometry. It will help them working on a master thesis.
About half of the course will take place in the form of a seminar, where those who wish to obtain credit points will give lectures.

The topics treated will depend on the participants. Those interested in participating should already contact the teachers during the Fall semester. It would be nice if we could build on courses of the Fall semester.

a first course in Algebraic Geometry and in Algebraic Number Theory are a must. The Mastermath courses Elliptic Curves’ andRigid Geometry’ from the Fall of 2015 are recommended.

2 hours lecture, 13 weeks

No final exam, but active participation is required. Grade: Pass/Fail.
