Vanishing Sheaf Cohomology
by Scott Mullane
Abstract: The talk will be addressed to a general (mathematical) audience, and will aim to introduce and motivate the statement of Kodaira's vanishing theorem.
(Scott will also give a more technical talk on Tuesday 22 June at 3pm, in which he will sketch one of the algebraic proofs of Kodaira's theorem and introduce the main tools involved in the proof: algebraic differential forms, the de Rham complex, divisors and cyclic covers.
The venue for this talk is yet to be determined.)
