Vanishing Sheaf Cohomology

Miscellaneous Seminar

by Scott Mullane

Institution: Department of Mathematics and Statistics, The University of Melbourne
Date: Fri 25th June 2010
Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Room 213 Richard Berry Building, The University of Melbourne

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.)
