Graduate Lectures in Mathematics
September 23 - December 16, 2020
Prof. Peter Feller, ETHZ and Prof. Jeremy Blanc, UNIBAS
The purpose of these traditional lectures is to present recent important developments in mathematics two a large audience of graduate students and young researchers. The lecturers are experts in algebraic geometry and geometric topology, known for important contributions in their fields.
Jérémy Blanc: Birational geometry of surfaces and Cremona group
Blanc: Birational geometry of surfaces and Cremona group
Peter Feller: Topics in knot theory with a view towards classical algebraic geometry
We cover topics in low-dimensional topology with a focus on knot theory---the study of circles and surfaces in 3-dimensional and 4-dimensional space.
- How does topology help in distinguish singularities of zero-sets of polynomials (following Newton, Oldenburg, Artin, Brieskorn, Milnor ...)?
With this focus, the lecture will allow for synergies with the graduate lecture by Jeremy Blanc at different points.
The administration of the University of Bern decided to cancel all "live lectures" from today on (19.10.2020).
We decided to postpone the graduate lectures instead of recording them.
