Title | Graduate Lectures in Mathematics |
Dates | September 23 - December 16, 2020 |
Organizer(s) | |
Speakers | Prof. Peter Feller, ETHZ and Prof. Jeremy Blanc, UNIBAS |
Description | 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. |
Program | 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. |

Information | 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. |
